Queen in 'a relaxed mood'

The body language here last night suggested, in the royal box, that nobody is over-worried.

The Queen is going to give a televised address, a thanks to people in Britain and in the Commonwealth for their support.

It was recorded last night by ITN and the inside word from inside the Palace is that the mood was good, the Queen was in a relaxed mood, there was no evidence of at all of anybody being on edge, there was no sense of crisis.

The Duke of Edinburgh is 91 on Sunday so it is not to be taken lightly, but the feeling that I get is that this really isn't an emergency.
