I think Her Majesty looked wonderful in the pale mint coloured suit and hat and the sun even came out for the float. Prince Philip looked chipper as well-the wee ones climbing the tree to see them was a great shot. Wish the DM would show more articles focused on HM's tour events as it is her jubilee year instead of some of the other non-news that they sometimes choose for upper page. Thanks Alexandrine for posting the Getty link for the coverage of it  :flower:

LONDON -- Queen Sofia of Spain has reportedly decided not to attend a lunch celebrating Britain's Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee on Friday because of a diplomatic spat over Gibraltar.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy earlier this year raised Madrid's long-standing demand for the return of Gibraltar -- a British territory on the Mediterranean Sea -- during talks with U.K. counterpart David Cameron.

Giggle: she didn't look very enthused of the duck tour ride  lol (who can blame her, the things are loud and not exactly comfy)

Comment from DM

The Queen ,as always,is a bright spot on that dreary day. Tho' she didn't exactly have the "Why have we never done this before? We MUST do this again soon!" look on her face! God bless her! I do not envy her appointment schedule,she must be a waste by bedtime. She is 86 yrs old,has 60 yrs of Service to Her Queendom,She never calls in sick,and 90% of the time,has a lovely smile.She is amazing. She has a huge fan-base here in the USA. WE love Love LOVE Her!!

'snort' when I saw that title I was having a image in my mind of Harry all hippie and flower-power with a tie dyed bandanna around his head and some purple tint glasses, rattling that tambourine, groovy man! :laugh:
But the song is pretty neat, al those different influences and voices coming together, sounds nice! :thumbsup:

Mixed reaction to the Jubilee in Wales - Cardiff in favour, Swansea definitely not.

However Jubilee spirit was in short supply in Swansea,with anti royalist sentiment to the fore.While substantial numbers of Jubilee revellers braved the rain in Cardiff,in the principalities second city few bothered to turn out.Former soldier Steven Jones,53,of Swansea,said."I am not anti-monarchy by any means but I can't see what is going on in London today has got to do with anyone in Swansea.I think many people here look at what's going on in London and feel it's a different world away from the lives of ordinary people."I was a soldier in the Royal Regiment of Wales so I served the Queen at one point."I've nothing against the monarchy but I don't think we should pay out for all the hangers-on.The extended family who benefit from the Royal connection".
IMO_As long as they are there even if you don't physically participate in parties your money is gone if you like it or not.Now your hard earned money is also going to a Climberton who does basically nothing all day and when the Queen is gone also her fam will be "supported" by your money.

A crowd of around 2,000 including schoolchildren and teachers and waiting dignitaries thronged Hatfield Park eager to catch a glimpse of the monarch.

When she arrived it was near frenzy and a sea of red, white and blue, as Her Majesty emerged from her car resplendent in a lilac double wool crepe shift coat and a lilac, green and yellow floral print dress designed by Stewart Parvin.

The fashion-conscious Queen’s matching hat was designed by Rachel Trevor-Morgan

She was greeted by Lord Salisbury and the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, and went on to meet a delegation from Welwyn Hatfield and Hatfield Town Councils, ...

Darn straight she deserves to be wearing those slippers after labour even if Her Majesty is dropping by for a look-in!  Too cute!!  :bouncy: :) :bouncy:  All the little bubbies-so darling!  :thumbsup:

How rude can DoLittle be - pointing her finger at HM!  :o  Seriously, what did that private education do for this vacuous woman? She's an airhead, with absolutely no sense of decorum!  :-X

Thanks for that picture - it explains the one where HM is smiling at her. It was most likely just a way to shut Waity up, to get her out of HM's face. Judges do it all the time ...  :laugh:

It is the most valuable – and glittering - exhibition ever created at Buckingham Palace.

Ten thousand priceless diamonds on display, many for the first time ever, to mark the Queen’s Jubilee.

From the diminutive diamond crown worn by Queen Victoria throughout her widowhood, to the breath-taking Coronation Necklace, featuring a staggering 22.48 carat pendant, the exhibition features some of the most spectacular pieces from the monarch’s private collection.

Nice diamonds

^ Yep. That's why this whole "downsizing" thing is ridiculous. Only the monarch and heirs apparent working. W&K won't make it as K&Q, they are too used to hiding and going on holiday. Then their oldest child will also be pampered and spend time on holiday doing as few appearances as possible.
