This is a bit weird.

It's like we know nothing about the Queen, she's sat there listening this to this shite.

Shakey15000 Sun 15-May-16 21:09:16

DH has just said as much. I always wonder whether she thinks "Bloody hell not another celebratory whatnot that I'm obliged to attend. What I'd really like to do is stick my onesie on, grab a bag of Mini Eggs and watch my Breaking bad box set"

It's painfully bad, no wonder she's got s face like a wet weekend.

I think its a bit weird too. a bit of a jumble. horses, music, history of the queen (yet again)

I didn't know Carson had married umbridge.

bloodypassword Sun 15-May-16 21:13:16

It's cringe-worthy. Prince William looks bored shitless.

Gary Barlow has morphed musically in to Elton John. Poor queen.

bonnie1981 Sun 15-May-16 21:15:31

probably the first time I've thought the queen earns her money, having to sit through things like this all the time.

she's probably thinking, okay I'm 90, fuck this, time to join mummy

I just said exactly the same comment of the Barlow/Elton morph!!!

As a rider I'm watching for the horses. I love the Shetland Grand National

WipsGlitter Sun 15-May-16 21:29:50

The massive arena isn't really helping. Agree they all look bored shitless. It's not the Olympics opening ceremony...

TheFairyCaravan Sun 15-May-16 21:31:26

I'm enjoying it. I love that the military are so involved in it.

PunkrockerGirl Sun 15-May-16 21:31:32

Thought Helen Mirren looked good.

SoleBizzz Sun 15-May-16 21:31:48

Some of the horses were frothing at the mouth and others looked uncomfortable with the bits. Is it cruel?

Equiem89 Sun 15-May-16 21:33:11

No it's not cruel

LIZS Sun 15-May-16 21:34:20

Eclectic mix , maybe they're going for British eccentricity. What is the choir and wtf is Katherine Jenkind wearing!

youngestisapsycho Sun 15-May-16 21:34:42

I'm really enjoying it!

Shakey15000 Sun 15-May-16 21:34:49

And now Katherine Bloody Jenkins. Right, it's going off grin

janethegirl2 Sun 15-May-16 21:35:05

The Queen looks bored, poor woman!

Whywhywhy1 Sun 15-May-16 21:35:25

Definitely true re Gary Barlow/Elton John!

bloodypassword Sun 15-May-16 21:35:35

Bet the queen is wishing she could bugger off back to Windsor castle for some cocoa and to watch 'gogglebox ' on C4. This is painful. I'm going to bed.

CousinViolent Sun 15-May-16 21:35:43

Helen Mirren looks different. Kind of hamster-cheeked. Had to larf at the ironic jump-cut to Queen and D of E looking utterly naffed off as Mirren was talking about their inspiring marriage.

LIZS Sun 15-May-16 21:36:02

Prince Philip looks ill. A bit OTT on the war for our German relations.

RoseDog Sun 15-May-16 21:36:53

At least we can change the channel, although I'm watching as I keep thinking it will get better, the queen and prince Phillip are stuck there until the end!

Whywhywhy1 Sun 15-May-16 21:37:11

It's not what I expected tbh

MintChocAddict Sun 15-May-16 21:37:56

Christ, Gary Barlow and Katherine Jenkins on the same bill. Smugness overload. All we need now is Russell Watson.

And WTF with the cars at the beginning while Elton Gary sang that truly awful song.

I bet she's wishing they would all just feck off.
