Sir David Jason - very fitting. It's not everyone who can play a pint-size cockney. No, you need an actual pint-size cockney.

How lovely to see the Queen in the Northern Ireland! And it's wonderful to see her being received by President Mary McAleese, what a special meeting!

I immediately went to the President's official website to find out any additional details, and this is what I found.

Plus, here are two additional photos that I found at Getty Images. Here the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are together wit President Mary McAleese and her husband Dr Martin McAleese at Hillsborough Castle in Belfast. Photos by Tim Graham Picture Library/Getty Images.

I've always liked Brian May, even moreso than Freddie Mercury, so I was glad he got this. It was such a surprise back when the Beatles first got their MBEs. I wonder what John Lennon would make of Sir Elton, et al.

The Queen seems to be knighting more and more entertainers lately.

Here are a few more pictures of Queen Elizabeth today as she opened the new building of Reuters at Canary Wharf in London. The Queen also got to send a simulated despatch to mark the official opening of the building.

I love the aubergine/wine red-ish suit the Queen wore today, very stylish!

she looks great. I dont much care for the smoke stack hat, but I love her suit. the burgundy of the coat and the bright red of her dress go well together. it's almost "pre-raphaelite" in a way.

(from wireimage)

Royal footmen stand with a giant Christmas card to the Queen in the Marble Hall at Buckingham Palace in London, December 15, 2005. The card bears an image of a Christmas tree decorated with a thousand photographs of members of the public who also sent their Christmas wishes to Queen. Computer manufacturers Hewlett Packard gave the National Children's Homes charity 1 pound for each contribution.
