On ITV now.......... platinum jubilee celebrations show

The Queen looks as though she’s really enjoying herself although a stern word might be aimed at the Household Cavalry who put on a very lack lustre performance.

Oh good! i do wonder how many of her recent problems are the result of her having COVID several months ago. Perhaps she tried to get back to normal too fast and should have rested longer than she did.

Kim19 Sun 15-May-22 21:47:28

Yes, she does look as though she is thoroughly enjoying the show. Wonderful.

What a fine collection of photos of the Queen!
Not a 'bad' one amongst them; the best I've ever seen.
HM looks really good, so lovely, happy, and relaxed; thank you for posting the article lemsip.

I'd hardly call her patent court shoes loafers 'tho!

Polly73 Sun 15-May-22 22:00:34

And they called her shawl / poncho a cardigan. I expect it’s finest cashmere.

I would agree with you about the Household Cavalry, Merlotgran the Azerbaijan horseman were more enlivening.

BigBertha1 Sun 15-May-22 22:16:21

I love the Azerbaijan ladies in horseback especially the one with the big drums.

Very touching seeing Lady Louise driving Prince Philip’s carriage.

merlotgran Sun 15-May-22 22:40:59

Would somebody please tell Omid Djalili that the Queen is Her Majesty and not a Royal Highness!

LauraNorderr Sun 15-May-22 22:48:29

Her Majesty looked lovely. She has a beautiful smile, her eyes light up. A remarkable woman.

Norah Sun 15-May-22 22:48:57

I wonder the price of the display?

Serendipity22 Sun 15-May-22 22:50:34

Absolutely FABULOUS
Just watched it....

I watched on TV, really enjoyed it, heart warming to see Her Majesty, The Queen, looking well & happy.
Touching moment to see Lady Louise driving the carriage she inherited from her grandfather, Prince Philip.

MiniMoon Sun 15-May-22 23:13:24

Yes merlot, I told him off about that too.

Pittcity Sun 15-May-22 23:16:29

I think he redeemed himself with the Opening of Parliament joke. The Queen's response was priceless.

Mollygo Sun 15-May-22 23:36:12

I thought the drummers were spectacular. We saw enough of HM enjoying the show without it being too intrusive. And yes, Pittycity I agree.😂

dogsmother Sun 15-May-22 23:53:06

Omid Djhlili was brilliant. I loved the drummers, I was mesmerized by them. Loved pretty much most of the show. I love horses too, probably why. Gentleman Jack was on the other side….. It’s a favorite that had to be recorded.

The Irish and Scottish dancing was fab-u-lous. Wales had Katherine Jenkins, thank heavens there were no Morris dancers though!
The Queen looked to be very happy.

What did he say ?

What did he say ?

He made a flippant remark, something along the lines of, "thanks for choosing to come to us above the state opening of Parliament."

I really enjoyed it too. I love watching horses, and there were plenty of them. I thought at first it was going to be awful, when all that seemed to be happening was some bad singing and Tom Cruise nattering.

It’s a shame that highland dancing has been taken over by girls, though. I’m all for equality, but it’s not equal. We hardly ever see the men dancing now.

The Queen looked quite bright and alert, which was good to see.

JaneJudge Mon 16-May-22 07:09:42

I actually thought it was a repeat blush and why does Tom Cruise now look like John Bishop?
