    I wonder if any of the networks will provide any of this coverage on DVD like BBC or BBC Canada? I'd totally buy it, I just haven't had an opportunity to watch any of the coverage due to work and the time difference.

    If anyone finds out if BBC has any coverage of making any DVD's of this fabulous, festive occasion, please do let me know, or any other network for that matter!

    I saw a small vignette on the local news this evening and wow, the woman just exudes radiance She has been so amazing in her six decades of service. She keeps going, but she really is dedicated to the service of her country. I wish her all the success and hapiness in the world.

    Can Catherine get any more perfect too? I have never seen her not look amazing and stunning at the same time.

    Here here to the Queen! Long may she reign over us!

    Harry and Sophie seem to be enjoying themselves. I was up dancing around to Tom Jones.

    I wonder if William was feeling a little out of sorts this weekend? He seemed a bit distant during the boat flotilla, standing off by himself a few times, and after the Church service Kate and Harry were very chatty and animated while William seemed quiet and pensive. I do hope he's feeling okay.

    I'm watching some of the tivo'd video from today, and I'm just tuned into the part with the crowd marching behind the police to Buckingham Palace, and it's really an amazing site and very touching. To have such a big crowd walking up in such an orderly fashion and all so happy was very impressive.

    This great show of pageantry during the last few days has made me even more excited for London's Olympics.

    Who can't help but think of Bobrova/Soloviev's SD right now?

    And yes, definitely looking forward to the Olympic ceremonies.

    they give good pageantry, that's for sure
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    He had military duty through Saturday and his duty is typically 24 hr shifts. Additionally, he is much more introverted than his brother so events like this likely tire him out a lot. All of that considered, I assumed he is just tired. Especially by this afternoon with the late night yesterday (remember the grandkids --minus Lady Louise and James of course--hosted a party after the concert) and presumably an early alarm today.

    He also had to view this all in a different light than Harry would, as well. This will be his life and his job one day. That is probably a daunting thing to think about.

    And the past few days have really put an emphasis on the "heir" and the "heir's heir" to show that the future of the monarchy is secure.

    There's also the small matter of his grandfather being hospitalized too. I suspect William is under pressure to increase his royal duties.

    Watching the US broadcast of highlights from the concert, and can they please make Katie Couric go away?

    And did they show Edward nodding off during the Tom Jones segment? And if you'd asked me decades ago whether I thought Tom Jones could still carry a song like that in 2012, I'd have thought you were kidding, but he's putting on a good show and looks great.

    Yes, I'll be surprised if there's any extra tour of duty for William at this point.

    And it seems that if the choice were his alone, he would continue in the RAF. As much as it is tempting to envy the glamor of their lives, it really isn't all that great. He has never had a real choice about what to do with his life, after all.

    Too true. As much as I'd like to own all their jewels and live the fancy life, I realize I am probably one of the least-suitable people to live that public life. Just like to be in the background more. So it's probably a good thing I didn't marry William like I thought I would back when I was a teenager.

    I imagine William has a somewhat similar personality, so I feel for him.

    I enjoyed what ABC decided to show of the concert,esp Madness on the roof of BP and the light show on the front of the palace. Not so sure about Kylie's song choice. She told the queen she wanted to F. U. N. K. her.

    The lineup at the end was odd. The Queen, Camilla, Paul McCarntney, Elton John, standing as if in a row with Paul trying not to hit anyone with his guitar.

    Is this the first time Charles has called the queen 'Mummy' in public? The crowd seemed to love it.

    It looked like a hell of a party!

    I took my late mother to see him at Cardiff Castle in 2001. An experience I will NEVER forget

    If anyone remembers ... who was the man who was walking next to the Queen when she came out onto the stage, and who was the woman in white directly behind them?

    I'm so glad the Diamond Jubilee concert was aired in the US. Tom Jones still looked and sounded great (I figured he probably wasn't going to sing "Sex Bomb", ). Loved the light show, the fireworks to all the classical music. I teared up when the crowd sang "God Save the Queen." I do hope that Prince Philip will be OK.

    I loved it! Charles has really come a long way in recent years.

    Agree also with PDilemma that William might have had a bit more on his mind this week than the others. Charles has been working toward this role his whole life, but it may only be becoming real for William now. He looked like he was having fun throughout the events, but I did notice those moments of apparent reflection on the Thames as well.

    I saw him in Toronto many years ago. The venue wasn't nearly as fabulous as a castle but Tom was incredible. I don't think he's lost a step vocally. (Certainly put Paul McCartney to shame last night )
