Visit to Northern Ireland, Day 1

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh today commenced a visit to Northern Ireland in celebration of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee. Her Majesty and His Royal Highness attended a Service of Thanksgiving in St. Macartin's Cathedral, Enniskillen, and afterwards met families of the victims of the 1987 Enniskillen Bombing. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh subsequently visited St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church and South West Acute Hospital.
Tell me something...doesn't this hat ornamentation look like the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara? Atta girl, Lil, show those protestors who wears the tiara around these parts. A short second to my hat distraction is the Shamrock Brooch, which I don't recall seeing before but doesn't surprise me at all. She really does have a gem for every occasion.
