Harry looks really ill, to me, and just bearing up.

Can Cameron have his head any further up the arse of the RF?

I admire how he is taking the RF off of taxpayer money (rightly if I may add), but he needs to stop constantly worrying about the RF and start worrying about the problems of the nation and of the world when he has to handle heads of state. There is no reason that he should be so schmoozy.

Harry looks really ill, to me, and just bearing up.

It sounds like Harry and William are oddly uneasy; if Harry now looks ill, I don't think it can be a cold, since if it were, then I am sure that we would know. Sounds like both are being crushed by some sort of depression.

This concert is such a flop. I hope it improves. The music is just so dated and the vocals are weak (yes Cheryl, I'm talking about you). All Kate is doing is whispering in William's ear. This CANNOT be classed as work or as an engagement.

 Apparently Kate is wearing a black shearling Alice Temperley coat over a patterned blue and purple dress from Whistles.

Surprise surprise. It really annoys me that Kate has latched onto McQueen in this way. She's ruined the brand.

I would have to be back in US now  :angry:  , they aren't showing the Concert on TV Live here yet.
I think it's going to be on maybe tonight CNN or NBC,ABC or tommorrow. Even BBC America is not airing it today! I don't think?
It will be hugely edited in the US. probably!

P.S. Notice Kate's body language in the photo w William and Harry. She appears to be trying to get into their closeness, but William and Harry appear to be laughing together more so.

I knew William would be all smiles at the Concert. This is HIS type of Royal event, celebs,music, fun,drinking later!

Post by: Yooper on June 04, 2012, 09:04:11 pm
^It IS emotional seeing her now, isn't it?  She looks worried/sad.  God, I hope everything's all right with PP.  

Question for the experts out there.  Was that the appropriate introduction of HM?  Shouldn't they have played the God Save The Queen?  Or at least sent best wishes out to PP?  Mack the Knife seems so inappropriate to me.

No offense to anyone out there, but this is one lousy concert, so far.  Maybe it's better in person.  Anyone from here there?  I look forward to a man-on-the-street report.

So far, this just doesn't have something.  Can't put my finger on it, but I can't watch it anymore.  They'll replay the highlights later anyway.  I expected so much more, perhaps, for such a remarkable occasion.

The insulting joke re the President of the United States was in such bad taste, that I have no words.  It wasn't even funny.  Bad diplomacy for this event and I cannot imagine HM liking it one bit.  We shouldn't even be mentioned.  Dam#!

Just my opinion, but I don't see this as a concert for HM the Queen.  The pianist Lang Lang, yes, but the rest were zzzzzzz - a lot of class was missing for an occassion such as this.

PC and C looked sooooooo bored.  :bored:  I can't say I blame them!

Alex?  You asked about the joke, I believe.

The Obama joke, such as it was, was something like "there's somebody out there that calls themselves the President of the United States but he sure doesn't have any taste in music.  His gift of the iPod (or whatever) is something HM has thrown out"...something along those lines.  We remember it was goofy, but I will give the people that were there a high-five, he didn't get a giggle out of it from them.  It was really an embarrassing moment.  Either before Tom Jones or right after.  Can't remember now.

Body language everywhere today!  Wow.  No wonder they don't go out in public much together.  I mean PW/WK.  It's been a long day of trying to wish her away from the looks of it.  PW doesn't even look like the same person when she's around.

The jokes and utter fawning were absolutely appalling. I often wonder if HM thinks "for Gawd's sake" when they are saying embarrassingly cringey things to her.

I was an odd gig really. Someone on the DT describe it as the Motorway Service Station Compilation Concert.  :laugh:

Don't take offence at the Obama jokes US folks none of it was funny and the Rolf Harris bit where he was instructed to sing Two Little Boys and then instructed quite harshly to shut up was embarrassing. They clearly needed him to cover up for running late. Bonkers

HM looked so lovely, but worried.  Or is that how she usually looks?  She sure can maintain.  Wow.  Huge day for her.  'Hope we get good news from the hospital.

Great speech, PC.  Loved the reference to him being the weather forecaster.

Kate looking bored through Rolf Harris's heartfelt tribute to the Queen, flicking through some kind of programme. When everyone started clapping him there was a delay before Kate could be bothered to put the leaflet down and clap too.
Of course that's that's the future of the RF.IMO_she doesn't give two flying figs about the work, nation only to get her crazy looking mug on the papers and live off people.

I was an odd someone on the DT describe it as the Motorway Service Station Compilation Concert.
lol
 The crowd didn't even look that big I think people didn't seem interested in this_IMO unremarkable event.

I agree it was a very lacklustre concert.
Yeah if you look at past  (J) celebrations it was the same thing pretty standard dullish entertainments.
It was good to see the eccentric Grace Jones though she still holds up. -lol-

Mind you, the young royals, Wills, Katie and the others, enjoyed themselves immensely. They obviously had no idea that this whole charade looked grotesquely stupid and embarrassing. They are simple people and want to be seen as modern and in touch with the feelings of, well, simple people like themselves.

Beckham will be next, he wants a knighthood...all for kicking a football around  :bored:  Mind you, I was impressed with his visit to the troops in Afghanistan...I think he genuinely want to thank them and lift their spirits.

I went to the website "Republic" and it mentioned how honors are being distributed to celebrities who are more than compensated and should be going to people who work in the charities, public workers, and other actually important people who remain anonymous and get little credit for their work.

If Beckham gets a knighthood, we'll never hear the end of it.

Oh dear lord, Sir David Beckham...can you imagine Victoria.   She'll be Lady Beckham and the kids will be The Honourable Brooklyn Beckham, The Honourable Romeo Beckham, The Honourable Cruz Beckham and The Honourable Harper Seven Beckham  :laugh:

IF David ends up getting that knighthood, we'll never ehar the end of it in the press; Victoria will end up determined to have "Lady Beckham" on her fashion website and I am sure that it will end up causing a ferocious protest.

That's one of the gripes I have about royalty. They go on about recognising ordinary people but most of the people who are recognised have just made it big in the entertainment industry and "got in" with the royals.

It actually isn't fair to blame the royal family for who gets the gongs as they are recommended by the government.

The only ones The Queen controls are Garter, Thistle, Bath and things like the Order of Merit and the Royal Victorian Order but the vast majority of them such as ordinary knighthoods, MBEs, OBEs etc they are down to the government so if Beckham was to just be knighted that would be a government recommendation not up to the Queen at all.  If he was given The Garter then that would be The Queen's personal decision.


Title: Re: Concert - 4 June
Post by: buflesse on June 11, 2012, 06:48:58 am
^True. But things like OBEs are used to justify the existence of royalty by some people.

Oh goodness...David Beckham, a knight of the Garter...


Title: Re: Concert - 4 June
Post by: meememe on June 11, 2012, 07:51:16 am
Sir David Beckham I could see happening but not the Garter just a garden type knight but not one of the elite orders.

HM could surely object and surely she could go public and make a case about being against celebrities getting these awards. She's Queen enough when it comes to her Jubilee and her family (sick as they are), her prerogatives to meet with the Prime Minister privately each week, so this is something she could voice her displeasure about.
