The Duke of Cambridge was welcomed with cheers as he rode for the first time in Trooping the Colour as Colonel of the Irish Guards, reports Paul Harrison for the leading world news service, Sky News on 11 June, 2011.
The annual Queen's birthday parade was the first "set piece" event for the Royal Family's newest member, the Duchess of Cambridge.
And the day after his 90th birthday, the Duke of Edinburgh also attended the military extravaganza.
Mr. Harrison reports that four Royal Colonels rode behind the Queen as she travelled from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade.
The 85-year-old monarch's first duty was to inspect the long line of troops - wearing famous red tunics and bearskins - from four of the five Foot Guards regiments of the Household Division taking part.
Prince William rode at the end of the line with his father Charles on his left.
These scenes showing The Queen and other members of the Royal Family at the races at Epsom come from the leading British broadcaster, ITN News.
The favourite, The Queen's colt Carlton house came third. "The public greeted Her Majesty with 'God Save the Queen' as she arrived at Epsom, but the bookies are now singing La Marseillaise!'', according to a press release from the no doubt greatly relieved bookmakers, William Hill.
Queen Elizabeth II has left Ireland after an historic visit widely hailed as a diplomatic triumph. This is a report from the major news broadcaster, Euronews, 20 May 2005.
Earlier, she and Prince Philip visited the ancient Rock of Cashel in Tipperary, a major tourist site. It was a relaxing end to a four day trip seen as heralding a bright new era in Anglo-Irish relations.
The turbulence and bloodshed of the past was not ignored by the Queen, far from it. She visited a sports stadium where British troops shot 14 civilians dead in 1920.
And, in one of the most memorable speeches of her nearly 60-year reign, she expressed regret for the centuries of conflict between the two nations.
While stopping short of an apology, it was a powerful gesture of reconciliation that many will see as a concluding chapter in the peace process.
Speaking to a dinner at Dublin Castle, The Queen has offered her deep sympathy to everyone who has suffered in centuries of conflict between Britain and Ireland.
A report from the leading UK broadcaster, ITN News.
....The text of Her Majest's speech follows:
''A hUachtarain agus a chairde (President and friends).
Madam President, Prince Philip and I are delighted to be here, and to experience at first hand Ireland’s world-famous hospitality. Together we have much to celebrate: the ties between our people, the shared values, and the economic, business and cultural links that make us so much more than just neighbours, that make us firm friends and equal partners.
Madam President, speaking here in Dublin Castle it is impossible to ignore the weight of history, as it was yesterday when you and I laid wreaths at the Garden of Remembrance.
Indeed, so much of this visit reminds us of the complexity of our history, its many layers and traditions, but also the importance of forbearance and conciliation. Of being able to bow to the past, but not be bound by it.
