The Queen:: The Olympics

How great is Queen Elizabeth II? How great was her entrance to the Olympics? How great was the whole Opening Ceremony? Brilliant. So superbly executed, I was giggling, jaw gaping, loving it the whole time. It held me captive. I loved it so much.

Danny Boyle, you are a clever, clever man. And clearly the Queen has a brilliant sense of humour.

Of course my fabourite part was Bond and the Queen. What a riot.

Are you watching the Olympics like I am? I am determined to watch as much as possible.
How pretty was that pale peach confection? I don't think she ever puts a stylish foot out of place. And I loved the black gloves, clutch and heels - she is one cool grandmother.

Here's more on how they kept the Queen's cameo a secret since April!

Just finished watching it. Loved it!
As well as the black gloves and clutch, I loved the Queen's slightly bored/irritated look on her face face.
Am going to be glued to Olympics.... Much to G's disgust.

This is a great clip! Glad to see HRH still has a sense of humour! :)

I didn't catch all of it, saw bits and pieces, how many times was it replayed on Saturday? I thought Her Maj looked fabulous in her pale peach outfit, loved the hat/fascinator.

I think the highlight for me was Camilla laughing at the German!

Love it all PMM! Love the Queen and the way her frock matches her chairs in the Palace, love Bond, the Olympics and crying when we get a medal. It's going to be a great couple of weeks :-D
