I have been feeling nostalgic all day, not being in London to enjoy all the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. By the time it got to the balcony scene, only Fox News appeared to be hanging in there and showing it live, (the BBC website tersely stating that their content was "not available in your region"). The Fox news coverage was interspersed with Piers Morgan, egged on by the excited presenters, giving his full and frank views on Harry and Meghan, which wasn't really the theme of the day.
I don't have any direct Queen anecdotes - the nearest I got to her was when I went to a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace for the BBC but I remember how she walked down the line of people deemed worthy to be introduced, shaking hands with an enchanting smile, making each person feel as though they were the most important in the world and spending exactly three minutes on each before moving on. If I can think of only one description for her, it's "supremely professional". She has been Queen all my life; I can't imagine life without her.
