    The Queen is going on a walkabout around the estate, so I'm sure she will be shaking hands with the public

    It's great that QE2 visits.

    You know Margaret Drive, Queen Elizabeth Walk, Prince Philip Avenue, Prince Charles Crescent, Prince Edward Road were all named after her family.

    She visited once before when she was young and maybe stayed at Admiralty House (north part of Singapore) when Singapore was still a British colony.

    All interested in the Queen only? The Duke of Edinburgh no one interested? Its a little funny as to why their schedule is so different? I tot they will be together. Maybe time constraints.

    occasion for their visit i think is to see see look look enhance ties. According to their schedule, i think its more like a social visit. For the more serious stuff, i think Tony Blair will be the one visiting instead.

    yeah... i second that!

    movie stars will lose their appeal after some time, but not the Queen. hopefully, nobody does the Mr. Bean move when she goes round shaking hands
    Mythbusters - the bigger the explosion, the better it is.

    Well, I do not know the timing... but I guess the best place to catch the Queen is at National Library and at Raffles Hotel where she will be resting her royal feet.
