I think everyone looks lovely. A few comments:

QEII ... major bling! Love it! Are those diamond pins on the front of her hat?
Kate ... lovely look ... however, the dress seem to be the same design/fabric of the navy blue dress she wore at the start of the Canada trip last year???
York Princesses ... they've gotten it right all weekend.
Lady Louise ... incredibly sweet!

Thanks for that. I do love how the humble minibus is becoming a stalwart of big royal events

Those are Swarovski crystals (on her hat).
But there is certainly no lack of bling; the Queen is wearing the Cullinan III brooch.

The Duchess of Cambridge entered Westminster behind The Duchess of Cornwall in front of her husband.

16-year-old Jemma Samuel, St. John Ambulance National Cadet of the Year, makes a superb recovery after a pause that seemed like a lifetime. And guess what? She's already tweeting about the experience! It seems that when David Cameron finished his reading, he forgot to turn the page. Jemma was the next speaker at that podium and had to flip through pages to find her spot.

I give her major props for not having a full-blown panic attack, but giving a slight smile as if to say 'oops, my bad', and fixing the situation. I'm sure on the inside she was anything but calm.

Can someone tell me why the royal standard is flying over Buckingham Palace?

Maybe they just forgot to take it down? I'm sure BP is a pretty busy place just now.

The Queen left at what half 9? 10 O Clock this morning? You don't forget that HM isn't there.

Interesting. I knew that was how her Canadian standard works, but I'd always assumed the palace was a little more exacting.

I'm not suggesting they've forgotten the Queen's not there, rather that they just forgot to change the flag over. Quite frankly, though, does it really matter?

Who would've guessed at the Golden Jubilee in 2002 that Camilla would be sitting beside the Queen during the carriage procession for her Diamond Jubilee? How far we've all come.
