One thing I had not realised when watching it. I noted how unusual for female members of the senior Royals to all be wearing green Apparently Edinburgh green was the favourite colour of the duke and it was worn in his honour.

yes I watched it. The children were so good and Charlotte is a really smiley child and shaking hands like an adult. first time for ages we have seen so many royals in one place at the same time. The Queen does look frail but she walked in and made time at Poets corner to speak to the young lady who made such a good job of speaking about her experience with the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Yes it was a good service I am sure he would have approved. Loved the photos they put up afterwards, I remember that all the girls were in love with him when he was young. :-) :-)

Did anyone watch it live at 11.30 today? Prince Williams children were a delight shaking hands with the ministers.

The Queen bless her walked in albeit through another door to make the walking less for her. She had support from prince Andrew no less holding her arm!!

I thought it was a lovely service and didn't drag on too long. Prince Phillip always said he didn't like long services.
