We're seeing it on TV here too. Looks like a good time. The queen looks fantastic.

Being half Canadian, I'm enjoying all things Royal. The Queen, with her glasses on, looks just like my grandmother did! Same hairstyle too.

The Brits can sure put on a celebration!

Was partially watching while reading the paper this morn. I looked up at the TV, and thought what the heck kind of dance is that? All these dressed up men jumping up and down, and they aren't synchronized. Thought they might be doing a Masai warrior thing. Then the camera panned down and I realized they were on horseback....

Yes, we had a lot of coverage of it here on CNN. I was surprised that it attracted my husband's attention, and he was peeved (as I was) that it was covered in three minute increments with 2 minutes of commercials (or was it the other way).

Couldn't help but wonder if the younger royals don't get bored stiff after awhile of the ceremonies? Concert aside, which seemed more geared to them. But how long can you stand and wave?

But it looked like a grand national party, a happy event.

It is not uncommon for people to get bored when they are at work.

I enjoyed every snippet of it and I am amazed at how sharp and nimble Q is at her age.

I'll have a glass of whatever she is having!
