Can't wait! :swoon:

And if anyone finds a lovely link or feed that works in the colonies, please feel free to share! :D



May I second this wish. I'm sorta wondering if maybe the BBC will stream it.

Yes!! Happy 90th Birthday to HRH Prince Phillip The Duke of Edinburgh!!

He just amazes me that at his age, he's as spry and as w/it as he is.

Great article w/quotes from Princess Anne, The Princess Royal...

Daily Mail ~ Gruff and grumpy? Not the Duke of Edinburgh: Anne tells of bedtime stories from Philip the caring father (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1387762/Duke-Edinburgh-Prince-Philip-caring-father-Anne-tells-bedtime-stories.html)

and

Daily Mail ~ My sadness at lost Navy career and loss of Royal yacht: Prince Philip's revealing interview (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1387453/Prince-Philip-My-sadness-lost-Navy-career-loss-royal-yacht.html)

The Queen's Birthday Honours List has been released today as well. Remember, Trooping The Colour is her HM's Official Birthday, so...

Daily Mail ~ Knight to sir you, to sir you knight! At last it's Sir Bruce as Forsyth heads Birthday Honours (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2002365/Knight-sir-sir-knight-At-Sir-Bruce-Forsyth-heads-Birthday-Honours.html)

Also on that list...


Joining Sir Bruce on the honours list is actor Colin Firth, awarded a CBE only months after collecting an Oscar for playing the Queen’s father George VI in The King’s Speech.

:D :D :D Congratulations to Colin!!

And the latest bit of the Fergie promoting Finding Sarah tour...

Daily Mail ~ 'Diana would have loved Kate... she'd have been the daughter she always longed for,' Fergie tells Piers Morgan (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2001883/Kate-Middleton-daughter-Princess-Diana-longed-Fergie-tells-Piers-Morgan.html?ito=feeds-newsxml)

One thing about tomorrow and the Balcony Scene...

Princess Pushy, aka Princess Michael of Kent, *always* makes sure she's behind HM so she can get into the Papers the next day. Okay then...What are the odds that she "ensures" she's beside Catherine tomorrow instead? I mean, it's a given a lot of pictures of the Duchess at her first Trooping the Colour in the Papers on Sunday, so...I'm just wondering. ;)

Ugh, can't HMQ make Prince Michael the Governor-General of some rock in the middle of the Pacific and get rid of her for a while? :blah:

Bad enough she wore that HUGE "Plan 9 From Outer Space" UFO hat to the Wedding...

...but if she was trying to hog some spotlight, it must have frosted her nuts to see Princess Bea's bedbug hat getting the attention! :rofl:

Congrats to Dame Janet Suzman (aka the Tsarina in "Nicholas & Alexandra") AND to John Amaechi, OBE! :cheer2:

Seriously! Don't know whether she'll be able to muscle in once they all come back out with HM to watch the flypast but after reading this thread this morning I kept a lookout and sure enough there she was!!

William's grey horse is beautiful!

Catherine lovely (as usual!) and HMQ in a fabulous pale blue outfit! Hat perfect, loved the coat details, too!

If you look at the third pic down, that's the first balcony appearance when HM was inspecting the troops at the gate to BP. ''Our Val'' was very much out on the edge come the balcony flypast appearance with HM. :)
