I don't think I've ever seen more genuine emotion on the Queen's face than when the crowd was chanting for Philip. I hope he's okay.

I'd give up my firstborn to hear Charles' speech.

Patience, Nico, it's coming I'm sure.

Overall, I thought tonight was amazing. It wasn't perfect by any means; but the respect and affection for the Queen and, indeed, Prince Philip was palpable and genuine. The stage was beautifully situated, the weather was good with the setting sun bathing everything in a warm glow. A touching speech from Prince Charles, heartfelt cheers for Prince Philip, followed by lovely fireworks. A special word also for the wonderful light projections on BP.

All in all, a worthy tribute to our much-loved Queen.

Whilst waiting impatiently for "newer" pictures, I stumbled across this lovely picture of (L-R) Lady Sarah Chatto, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, Zara Tindall and Prince Harry (or half of him that is). Looks like they were having fun (which I'm sure I would have too, if only Danish tv had decided to air the concert on an available channel, sigh).

I have no words...
Charles's speech and everything he has said was so genuine, so emotional . I've had a feeling that it was rather difficult for Queen to keep her tears in that moment, though she came through all these official ceremonies all her life.

Seen again Charle's speech on sky. The Queen was indeed incredibly moved and fore sure with some tears ! She obviously tried hard to keep her composure during the incredible cheers from the crowd for Philip.

I thought the same. The Queen doesn't openly show emotion all that often but I think the genuine affection for her husband moved her. I know it did me!

You mean for the performers? I think it's probably ongoing as we speak. Things went on a little bit late, but not too bad. I think it was only the younger royals attending that one, so I'd say HM is probably off to bed.

Very nice speech and heartfelt. I do think, however, that QEII has learned how to be so stoic that, perhaps, she can't show as much emotion as the situation deserves. And, I don't say this is any way disrespectful ... I would, however, have liked to see her show a bit more emotion. However, that stoicism is what makes her so unique. Three Cheers for Her Majesty! I do have the utmost respect for you and how you conduct yourself. Hip, hip, hooray!

Yep and I believe she is spending the night at Windsor since she's been there from yesterday, I've been told. Tonight is going to be insane for me so I have to go stock up on coffee, I'll see you guys later.
