A bit OT but I wonder how many events HM will actually attend during the Games. I can see her showing up to support granddaughter Zara but beyond that I would not be surprised if she pretty much left the Games to the younger generation and spent her own time quietly at Windsor. The Games will be officially closed by the President of the IOC so there is no real need for her to be there even for that. Brooch watchers may end up being disappointed.

So far, it has been confirmed the Queen will attend only three Olympics-related events:
- A reception for Heads of State and Government attending the Opening Ceremony at Buckingham Palace, on 27 July.
- Opening of the XXX Olympic Games on 27 July.
- Visit to the Olympic Park on 28 July.

The Duchess of Cornwall and The Princess Royal are listed to attend the Equestrian Individual and Team Cross-Country Eventing (to support Zara, obviously) but the Queen and Prince Philip aren't. Then again, the Duchess of Cambridge will be there too - and she isn't listed either; that's because Camilla will attend in her capacity of a Patron of the British Equestrian Federation, and Anne - as IOC member and President of BOS. Perhaps, we will see the Queen and Prince Philip attending the games in private capacity, although the younger royals will have a significantly more visible role.

I believe she is only there the first weekend - and then is heading off to Scotland. C&C are on a similar sched. I think once the equestrian and Zara are done, it will be mostly Will, Kate and Harry and of course Anne officially - the rest of the family will probably be unofficial guests.

The Queen, the Royal Family and the Olympics
 
Any news about if Her Majesty will be opening the Olympic Games on Friday ? Usually the Head of State does, but I haven't heard if she will or has asked The Prince of Wales to do it.

Also has their been a schedule of Olympic events Her Majesty & other members of the Royal Family will be attending ?

Balmoral more likely - it's the time of year she slips off up to Scotland for a long retreat to her favourite home... I doubt very much HM will attend any games at all....Apart from Braemar of course!

She may attend the equestrian events privately to cheer her granddaughter on. I personally hope that she does. Her Majesty does love riding, and it would mean a lot to Zara to have her Granny there.

I think that HM might stay away from Zara's events, simply because I think there's huge pressure on Zara as it is, never mind having the Queen and the rest of the RF sitting watching. Zara has been frustrated by the media's obsession with asking her about her family all the time. The Queen might think it'd be best if only a few family members watch her compete.
