According to the House Wessex website, this year Chelsea Flower Show will take place on 24th May.But at that time, The Queen would be in Canada,so i think Her Majesty would miss it this year.Or maybe Her Majesty will attend but on 26th May.We all looking foward to the upcoming events of our Gracious Majesty.
Visit to Canada ends on 25th. Perhaps she will be too tired. And she always attend the first day of the show, which is not open to public.

But this visit causes more problems to Prince Philip: I checked dates of national driving events and I discovered that he won't able to attend the first selection (20-22 May) for the World Pony Championship.
The other selection is on the first weekend of June: on Saturday morning (the marathon day) I think he has to attend a review in Horse Guards Parade, as it's the Saturday before Trooping the Colour.
From The Times today:

"The Queen has been pleased to appoint the Hon James Lindsay and George FitzRoy to be Pages of Honour to Her Majesty in succession to the Hon John Bowes-Lyon and Archibald Young."

what about HM Queen go with him?

Sara Boyce
The Queen is Supreme Governor of the Church of England and most certainly would not attend the Investitute Mass of the Roman Catholic Church.

It is very rare for the Queen to attend things of this nature in person and at 79 she is not going to begin now.

Sending her son to the previous pope's funeral and now her husband to this investiture is a huge break with tradition. I know quite a few members of the Church of England who were upset that the next Supreme Governor attended the funeral and put of his wedding for this event as this was seen as bowing to Rome and something that Anglicans haven't done since 1533. Others were supportive of course.

Sending her husband is a safer bet as he won't hold the title of Supreme Governor and shouldn't upset as many Anglicans.
I just saw this photo from Royals of the UK Yahoo group.I know that it from Corbis but i can not find this photo from Corbis,i did not see this.This photo of the Queen in January attended a Memorial Service in Sandringham:

Oh!:( I wonder why she was crying? Maybe she was remembering her mom and sister b/c I believe Pres. CHirac's visit was about the anniversary of the Entente between France and the UK. Maybe...
