All look bored except for Phillip who is waving like a trooper with a big grin on his face!

More like frozen - why hasn't Kate got a coat with her? It is freezing just watching, let alone standing still on a boat ...

I think they are probably cold!

I bet they are all tired, public relations have been going for a long time now, tv programmes, interviews and live events.

I think they all look cold!

It's quite a long time for someone of 86 to be standing around in the wind and rain really. I bet Queenie could mrder a cuppa.

But I bet she won't sit down - the old Queen Mum never sat down either at march pasts or parades etc. even in her 90s

murder a cuppa.

Ummm never thought about the cold as I am snuggled in my living room. You may be right.

I saw Eugenie earlier taking photos on her iPhone. She looked like she was having a good time. I presume they all have thermals on to help with the cold.

It is bloody freezing I promise! Why didn't Kate bring a coat just in case - she has borrowed someone's scarf!

Salmotrutta Sun 03-Jun-12 17:09:36

I thought she should have had a scarf too!
Nothing worse than a cold neck and ears!

Oh - just realised she was carrying that little tartan scarf when she got on the barge.

I bet they are all dying for brew and biscuit

Salmotrutta Sun 03-Jun-12 17:10:54

I wonder if the royals ever get a chance to sneak in a flask of tea? grin

Or a cup-a-soup maybe ...

Who can blame them It is rather tedious,they've been standing around for hours,and the weather certainly isn't helping.

Salmotrutta Sun 03-Jun-12 17:11:50

Phil looks like the kind of guy who'd have a hip flask with a nice malt whisky.

babybarrister Sun 03-Jun-12 17:30:05

Who can blame him either! DS (5) moaning after 90 mins he was freezing and he had a jumper and anorak on and is never cold ....
He says they deserve a break too ...

Salmotrutta Sun 03-Jun-12 17:32:21

It looks really horrible weather there now!

It's not even raining up here in Scotland shock

They should have had the pageant up the Forth or the Tay or something grin

They look cold. I'm impressed at Queenie, 86 and standing for hours just waving. I wonder if she suffers from repetitive strain injury?

EssentialFattyAcid Sun 03-Jun-12 19:53:47

IT looked phenomenally dull to me

usualsuspect Sun 03-Jun-12 19:56:00

I bet she was dying for a wee,I would have been with all that water around.

I don't know why William was not standing next his wife. She seemed to spend half the time looking bored, giving little "yeah, yeah" waves and giggling with Harry (who looked gorgeous and seemed to be having a great time)
