i assumed she bowed her head as a mark of respect

I want to know that too. And I would like to know what happened to the rider of the loose horse.

I think he saluted every time they went past a war memorial-type thing. So yes, she was bowing her head as a sign of respect.

Where were they going in the car with the "Just wed" licence plate?

PatientGriselda Sat 30-Apr-11 06:47:36

Clarence House, another royal residence about 2 mins walk or 30secs drive away!

Why did the Queen have a (fairly cheap looking) blanket over her legs in the car on the way to the Abbey? Surely they could have warmed the car up for her? And if she really wanted a blanket, couldn't they they have found her a yellow one to match her outfit?

Thanks Patient.
And good to hear the rider was okay. Bet he is gutted about that happening, but amazing that there weren't more frightened horses. Poor guy.

I'm assuming it was sawdust on the road outside Clarence house, & that it was for horse muck? confused
I spent a bit of time googling it last night! grin

The sand on the road was to stop the metalled carriage wheels skidding on the road.

ChippyMinton Sat 30-Apr-11 08:59:00

Yes, sand is to provide grip. Notice it's only where the carriage has to make a turn.

I wondered about the Queen's blanket too.

Belgianbun: I lip read "wait till you see Catherine" - although maybe I was projecting a plausible phrase.

Who were the flower girls?

Why did the Queen not join in at her grandson's reception?

WhatSheSaid Sat 30-Apr-11 09:17:43

Cos she's 85 and she probably wanted to go and have a nice cup of tea and a lie down?

ChippyMinton Sat 30-Apr-11 09:20:30

She was at the official reception immediately after the wedding - actually she was the host.

How does the Duchess of Cambridge know what to pack for her honeymoon if the Duke won't tell her where she's going or what they might be doing?

PandaNot Sat 30-Apr-11 09:43:29

The blanket on the Queen's knee was because her skirt was riding up when she sat down and she didn't want the world's media peering at her legs!

LawrieMarlow Sat 30-Apr-11 10:20:52

Do you think they had sex last night? Am hoping am not the only person wondering this blush.

Queen always has blankets/rugs on her. She is getting on a bit.

EauRouge Sat 30-Apr-11 10:25:22

According to the beeb, Harry said 'wait til you see what's coming'.

Lawrie, no chance, they'd have been far too knackered!

hocuspontas Sat 30-Apr-11 10:26:53

And it was royal blue.

meditrina Sat 30-Apr-11 10:26:54

lawrie and EauRouge: I thought the late afternoon stop off at Clarence house was the consummation break.

Not a chance after the all-night party!

hocuspontas Sat 30-Apr-11 10:28:35

I'd like to know if Harry REALLY made breakfast for the all-nighters or whether he was too pissed.
