It looks like Catherine and Jill Biden hit it off nicely.

Finishing out the meal will be a selection of three Cornish cheeses, a dessert course featuring strawberry Pavlova and a final course comprising a selection of petit fours that includes a miniature ice cream cone and fudge made from clotted cream, along with chocolate earl gray truffles."


Sounds like a really nice dinner!!

I feel a bit uncomfortable seeing the queen surrounded by so many people from different parts of the world. At least it was a garden reception but still...

"Are you supposed to look as if you're enjoying it...?" (Is that a little Philip I hear, Ma'am?)

She remains glorious.

All leaders trying to gain a moment with the Queen.

The ultimate display of royal diplomatic charm.

Stangely, most of those present kept their distance as per covid advisories and let's face it, you can't get more organised or civilised than the G7 Covid Pandemic "family" photo.

https://media.gettyimages.com/photos...84?s=2048x2048

Her Majesty is in fine form and she is emitting an incredible aura of joir de vivre. She's beaming and positively bouncing with joy which, under the circumstances I believe is easy to understand. For the first time in her life, she has been forced to take an extended leave of absence from "The Firm". At first, it was made easier with her and Philip spending the kind of time together they could only have dreamed of.

Then came the long drawn out concern over Philip's health followed by his abrupt death. What followed was a nightmare few could understand as she shared her loss with the country but, having celebrated an extraordinary life, she has gone on to live hers within the confines of Covid advice. But she's free to be herself in Covid even with an abundance of caution because of her age. She looks like a kid that hasn't been allowed to go to the beach . . . sand and sea for miles and she can at least paddle.

How many people missed her presence and her welcoming smile I wonder?

True. But somehow for me today and also in the Event where the Rose's in honour of Prince Philip was planted she looks truly old which she is of course
And she resembles the late Queen Ingrid

HM says "are you all supposed to be looking as if you're enjoying yourself".




Edit - just seen this was already posted upthread.

The Canadian PM is a snazzy dresser!

I'm wondering if the Queen has phoned ahead to get a preference for what kind of flowers she should bring for Cruachan IV this year.

This is something I look forward to seeing every summer. The Queen being greeted by her four legged (and sometimes hungry) friend.

Who knows! I imagine she is this thoughtful.

Cruachan 14 is a dear... err, I mean, a fierce warrior. I can't believe I got it wrong.
