Sir David Jason - very fitting. It's not everyone who can play a pint-size cockney. No, you need an actual pint-size cockney.

Woow!!Thanks lots for pictures, fanletizia,!The visit was not mention on the Royal Diary at all, couldn't think that Her Majesty still working really hard, having a trip at this time which Her Majesty rarely does in those recent years.Her Majesty looks wonderful!!!
How lovely to see the Queen in the Northern Ireland! And it's wonderful to see her being received by President Mary McAleese, what a special meeting!

I immediately went to the President's official website to find out any additional details, and this is what I found.

Plus, here are two additional photos that I found at Getty Images. Here the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are together wit President Mary McAleese and her husband Dr Martin McAleese at Hillsborough Castle in Belfast. Photos by Tim Graham Picture Library/Getty Images.

Queen presents rocker May with CBE:
Queen guitarist Brian May has received a CBE from the Queen.
From http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=2360782005

I've always liked Brian May, even moreso than Freddie Mercury, so I was glad he got this. It was such a surprise back when the Beatles first got their MBEs. I wonder what John Lennon would make of Sir Elton, et al.

The Queen seems to be knighting more and more entertainers lately.
Queen Elizabeth is welcomed by company chairman Niall Fitzgerald to the Reuters building in London December 13, 2005. The Queen visited Reuters' new global headquarters in London's Canary Wharf on Tuesday and then sent a simulated despatch to mark the official opening of the building.

I love the aubergine/wine red-ish suit the Queen wore today, very stylish!

she looks great. I dont much care for the smoke stack hat, but I love her suit. the burgundy of the coat and the bright red of her dress go well together. it's almost "pre-raphaelite" in a way.
ah, how wonderful to get to work there. it would be so cool to get a christmas gift from the Queen.

According to the report posted by Skydragon, it's more a case of the grandsons wanting the Queen to have Christmas at Windsor. :)

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, this will be the first time I will have the possibility to hear the Queen's speech to the Commonwealth live on television, previous years I've just seen it on the internet. It's gonna be so great!

For me there's two major speeches tomorrow - first my own King's (Carl XVI Gustaf) traditional speech via radio around lunch time, and then Queen Elizabeth's in the afternoon!

I hope to see some really interesting glimpses!
