WONDERFUL photo essay! Thanks for all your hard work in posting this thread. My thoughts:

I'm partial to "pomp and circumstance" (some Brit blood in my heritage mixture) and love seeing Queen Elizabeth look so engaged, pretty and happy. President Bush seems to have formed a bond of friendship with her.

Doesn't look like the protestors won the day during President Bush's visit, does it? Toppling an effigy of our president and calling him the world's most dangerous terrorist says a lot about them. (They're backward idiots.)

Prime Minister Blair and President Bush have also formed a warm bond of friendship which evidently was strengthened and sealed during their vist to Duncow.

I find myself contrasting this distinguished and solemn state visit (with appropriate lighthearted moments) to what we would've seen had it been X42 instead of President Bush. Interesting images that brings to mind.

I agree with you. Honor and dignity have been restored to the White House.

Regarding the dignity, As best as I can tell, in many photos including the Queen and the First Lady, Mrs Bush seems to have lost her pocketbook.

I regret having to make this observation, but so far the FReepers who comment on such things seem absent.

Wow! What great pix! Thanks for posting them!

The President looks so vigorous and strong, but I cannot believe how elegant and positively radiant Mrs. Bush looks. With a little extra touch of formality, just to reassure the Queen that she isn't going to do something silly just because she's an American . . . :-D

I hesitate to post this -- those without strong stomachs avert your eyes -- but just compare and contrast this:

They just look like trashy tourists who don't know how to behave. And Her Majesty looks quite unhappy.

I challenge anyone to find a compareble picture of Bubba. i think you will find that all pictures of X42 the Marine will be saluting while BUBBA will be totally ignoring him and showing his desrespect for the military.

Regarding the dignity, As best as I can tell, in many photos including the Queen and the First Lady, Mrs Bush seems to have lost her pocketbook.

Actually, she is missing the purse, the gloves and the hat! We can make some allowances for cultural differences, can't we? After all the suit is beautifully tailored and it is not a polyester/wool blend pant suit!

one thing the good institutions of the world have in common: they are under merciless attack by a slanderous enemy who plays by no rules.

ever notice how much the media have in common with terrorists?

I read somewhere Mrs. Blair sprained her ankle recently. The article said she fell off a stool trying to reach a hatbox on a closet shelf.

Good thing when The Groper & Hil'ry visited Buckingham Palace they didn't bring along any of the gang from Arkansas --->

Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Clinton Presidential Center. Senator David Pryor Award recipient Willie Oats attends the groundbreaking ceremony. Presented annually, the award honors older Arkansans who continue to make outstanding contributions in their individual communities. Aside from the Senator David Pryor Award, Willie Oats is perhaps best known in Central Arkansas for her spectacular hats. December 5th, 2001

OK, I want to know what we gave as a hostess gift. What on earth do you give a queen?

Mrs. Bush is wearing gloves in the one setting that the queen is not wearing gloves or a hat (QEII in bright green dress).

I noticed the missing handbag immediately too.

Thanks for the info about Cherie Blair. Must be the nurse in me--saw the cane, was concerned about degenerative conditions. Relieved to know it was a temporary case of klutz.

Good lord have mercy! What is that?!?!?!

Actually, the Queen is probably familiar with the outrageous hat business, a tradition at Royal Ascot for over 100 years.

I couldn't find a pic of Gertrude Schilling, the famous "Ascot Hat Lady" who makes Miss Willie look like the rural amateur she is . . . but I did find a doll dressed like her . . .

The president was probably thanking Queen Elizabeth II for her hospitality and the queen was probably telling him how much she enjoyed having him and the First lady visit and stay with her

I would say that Elizabeth really liked Dubya. And away from the media, she could relax and not strictly adhere to the Rules For a Queen.
She also got along very well with Ronald Reagan.

Great collection of pics from the trip to Great Britain.

Any of the Dose hosts want to add to the gallery ..... or "borrow" some of these?

Laura Bush is the prettiest First Lady we've ever had, and that picture is proof!

Jackie Kennedy wasn't even close, IMO.

THIS is why the President knows he's not hated by the British......

I heard one young British girl call him "the most amazing man in the world!"

Well, it was a news report......on Fox, I think. She was in the 12 to 14 range, and they were talking about the fact that, in spite of the protests, most Brits were happy that the President came.

I think she may have been in the northern part of Britain where the Blairs live, but when she said that with her British accent, it was adorable.......and almost made me tear up!
