I don't care whether she was smiling or not - she's probably exhausted and you're seeing her default facial expressions. It's not like a little television meet and greet where she knows she is on TV for that moment so can look all happy. I'd probably look like she did at that event most of the time - going to the Olympics must be like spending a day in Disney World, enjoyable but physically tough.

But what is silly is to give credit for her actually turning up. This is the Olympics in London, it would be an utter disgrace if she didn't turn up and a PR disaster. She simply had to be there so let's not say we are happy for that.

She's out and about at the Olympic site today - not bad for an 86 year old.

Look at her f**king radiant smile.



I thought she looked incredibly tired to be honest and no wonder.  How many other 86 year olds have the schedule she has and she's turned up to the Olympic Park this morning - good for her!

I don't really watch TV for anything but sport (and Jeremy Kyle for laughs) but last night was a masterpiece. Don't know if the quirkier material was understood on the world stage but it was a fantastic story about our country.

Now, trying to get some tickets for next week... I see the swimming stands are relatively empty this morning. Think

She's one of the most privileged people on the planet. Her age, practically speaking, is probably closer to 60. If she wasn't fit, she wouldn't be doing it. It's not as if she is enduring pain to sit and watch the opening ceremony.

I must remember to ask my Chinese friend who participated in the last Olympics if she considered Abide With Me as an anthem, that is if she is bright enough to know!!

It's traditional- take it up with the Olympic committee if you think it's that insulting to everyone Rolling Eyes

Hmm lets think 86 year old sitting for how many hours?

She got caught not smiling Rolling Eyes It was a long tv coverage. If you're going to go obsessional about the Queen shift it to the Monarchy thread :P

Exactly, she had no idea when the camera would go on her. Is she expected to hold a smile through the majority of the ceremony? I'd probably die of such a task.

I'm no fan of the Monarchy but I think some of this criticism is unreasonable.

Camera was on her plenty, and she didn't smile once. You seriously wouldn't expect her to smile when children are done singing the national anthem to her?

I can't abide her.

Well now, that is a fair criticism.

I was wanting a smile there too. I actually thought for a second she looked a bit emotional at that point but was probably mistaken.

Very disappointing especially after Mark,s holding back at the Tour.  At least it wasn't too bad.  He was fifth.

I saw something about Chris Brailsford saying that Mark could leave the Sky team if he wished.  Where did that come from?  Maybe he feels guilty for not helping him more.  Come back HTC.
