Queen's Christmas Speech 2004

Lady Louise appears a couple of times in the video. She looks so much like Edward when she was a toddler.

Wow I really loved that scene . I would like to see more videos like this in the future
Lady Louise is just like little Edward and now like Queen when she was little .She will be a very very beautiful lady

That video was precious . I love the 'oooh!' from baby Louise, and Margarita with her blonde curls, handing the gift with such a solemn expression . Wonderful glimpses of Her Majesty behind closed doors.

According to this page every member of the family attended today except for the York girls and the Wessexes (although Edward and Sophie do have an apartment at BP so perhaps they were inside already),

We don't see anything from inside - it is a private lunch.

I would assume that the Yorks attended - but as Andrew has an apartment in BP we didn't get any pictures of them arriving - same with the Wessexes.

Prince Andrew was seen driving in so if his daughters were there I would have expected them to arrive with him. Neither were they seen leaving later on but I suppose it's hard to know for sure as this is such a private event.

It seems incongruous to see Zara with a ski cap on for a luncheon with the Queen, but casual has always been her style!

Personally, I think it sets a good austere message, well thought out. Luxury days are a thing of the past, at least for now. Everything must be considered and restraint should be exercised where possible.

Of course the rest of the party travelled by car - including the corgis. It if just the Queen who 'roughs it'.

This brought to mind an image of a car stuffed with half a dozen people and half a dozen dogs, suitcases, gifts, perhaps a tree and a case of wine... No wonder HM wanted to ride the train!

What really impressed me was the comments that followed the article. It really shows how much HM is in the hearts of people as they stood up for their Queen (and yes some Americans did too). They clearly believe that she rated better than just common, ordinary means of transportation even in these austere times.

I can just imagine Ladonga's version of that car heading to Sandringham too. Most likely with a rousing chorus of "Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go" too.

Yes, HM is a grand lady who certainly rates a car to whatever her destination may be, IMO, though I certainly respect her concession to austerity.

I think it's much more fun to travel by train!
You can always drive someplace. but a train...I really like trains.

Well, if it's the ultra-luxurious Orient Express, then all aboard for me! Though that may not be in the spirit of austerity.
