Anyone watching. I'm fascinated at the behind the scenes look but am not a royalist (unlike ds!).

I want to know where you can buy coats like the one worn by the salmon skin hat creator.

She looked stunning didn't she? She probably had it made.

Watching as a pro-monarchist smile

Watching it thinking what a life of utter privilege she has really had.

True.

I do like the pagentry. Ds can't wait until he gets to sing for the Queen.

Can spell it too - pageantry blush

I am loving it, what a woman! I love the royals smile

She is actually surprisingly normal and quite witty isn't she?

MrsDoomsPatterson Sun 17-Mar-13 20:49:26

She is normal, she's just a person.

she's such an interesting lady and this programme has shown her at her best smile

I loved the river pageant. We watched it from my office balcony.

I'm surprised how quickly I've forgotten the various events last year, royal and Olympic/Paralympic that made it such a special year.

I like the idea of having your own butter stamp.

What were guests supposed to do with the pineapples?

Thoroughly enjoying it, I always love these little behind-the-scenes glimpses into the Queen's life, and it's particularly interesting hearing from Charles, Anne etc.

Unashamed Royalist here. smile

2 days off a year ...l

difficultpickle Sun 17-Mar-13 21:42:39

I was thinking that. And no retirement.

Really enjoying seeing behind the scenes and the amount of preperation that goes into state visits.
