Royal Visit 2011.

By johnboy - 20 October 2011 27

royal barge

We waited by the lake, and we waited, and then the jet skis roared into sight, the motorcade with armoured Land Rover thundered by, and the admirals’ “barge” hove into view.

Apparently the Queen was on board.

Taken a good photo or video of the visit? Email it in to .

Her Majesty does not appear to like her flowers:

Jawm got a good look at them as they went past Weston Park:

Regular readers will be thrilled to see the police jet skis being put to good use.

Mr Gillespie said :

I can’t believe the fuss people are making cos the PM didn’t “curtsy” to the Queen I mean talk about snobbish and pompous.

Indeed, it really is lamentable. However, had Gillard curtsied .. could you imagine the headline ‘Self-professes feminist curtsies’ .. the woman can’t do anything right. When she went to the royal wedding, everyone screamed about how an unmarried, Republican had no place to be there .. could you imagine the headline had she rejected the invite based on those reasons!! Such nonsense is really tiring.

I was always suspicious of that little wave that she does, it looks more like a way to sneakily sniff your own farts without being direct about it.

Nice boat. Getting off it at 86 and 90 is pretty impressive, with the high freeboard.

Yet more indication of the rules not applying to monarchy. Not only can they discrimminate based on sex, religion and birth but they can also facilitate the use of high-powered motorised boats / skis on the lake.

Yeah, look at the crowd numbers .. clearly, other work-shy parasites turning up to welcome their master.

Apparently that boat was built in the 1930s. I hope it was inspected for seaworthiness before MH got on board.

Finally, the jetski’s have been justified.

Fantastic boat!

Looks like plenty of room for cheering crowds, they should have brought bus loads of school kids, to make it look good for the media.
Any photos of flowers from the Floriade?:-)
No? I didn’t miss much then.
