Royal Thanksgiving

Our greatly beloved Queen arrives at Westminster Abbey, accompanied by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, for the Service of Thanksgiving to commemorate the coronation of Her Majesty sixty years ago.

I have been listening to David Dimbeby narrating for the BBC. He commentated on the arrival of the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, at about ten fifty-five, making some reference to the time when Prince Charles becomes King.

Then pop Dimbleby stated "if" he becomes King, the silly ass. Quite inappropriate, not to say insensitive.

When pop Dimbleby gets home ~ if he gets home ~ he ought to dwell on this.

The Prime Minister wears his favourite deep purple tie; has he been liaising with the Leader of HM Opposition on this matter?

not the greatest day for the Dimbleby dynasty - he spoke over the start of several of the readings and the poem by the poet Laureate, though it may have been a bit of sloppiness by the production team, not being aware of the time available

A very forgettable address by His Grace.

Indeed, I'm not sure what to make of the Archbish.

Richard Chartres might have been closer my my preferred candidate as Primate.
