'The Queen's Baton Relay, similar to the Olympic Torch Relay, is a relay around the world held prior to the beginning of theCommonwealth Games. The Baton carries a message from the Head of the Commonwealth, currently Queen Elizabeth II. The Relay traditionally begins at Buckingham Palace in London as a part of the city's Commonwealth Day festivities. The Queen entrusts the baton to the first relay runner. At the Opening Ceremony of the Games, the final relay runner hands the baton back to the Queen or her representative, who reads the message aloud to officially open the Games'
This year humor was injected with 'the Queen's face when Prince Imran of Malaysia and Sir Chris Hoy struggled to open the Commonwealth Games baton that contained her message during the opening ceremony.;
Watched by an estimated one billion people around the world, the Commonwealth Games President, Prince Imran, wrestled with the top of the baton for several minutes.
'At first the Queen – waiting to the declare the Glasgow Games open – smiled but then looked concerned before finally throwing up her hands in mock celebration when Prince Imran finally removed the top of the baton and handed over the speech that had travelled 288 days to Glasgow, via 71 countries and more than 118,000 miles.'
(Malasysia has hit the headlines recently with the disappearing flight MH270 and the tragic crash MH17 killing almost 300 people. Malaysia is revealed as connected to the Commonwealth).

With Prince William was created Earl of Strathearn on his wedding day - the title of the provincial ruler of Strathearn in medieval Scotland. His wife would be Countess of Strathern. As there is some confusion with what is happening with 'Scottish Indepandance' all is not clear.
Today, the Daily Mail published rarely shown affection between Prince William and Kate Middleton The trio, including Harry were certainly expressive duing a boxing match between England's Scott Fitzgerald and Ghana's Azumah Mohammed in the men's welterweight preliminaries bout
Wincing and hiding her face, competative Kate transformed afterwards as if punching the air when cheering. Strange how folks sit watching fights and cheer winners. (hating boxing personally) It also cannot be ignored that there are people who plot and plan wars - who is really gaining from all these illegal wars.
The Commonwealth stretches beyond this Island called the United Kingdom. When showing favour over one team over another - showing favour over one people over another, is noticable.
The Daily Mail writes: Prince William, who will one day be the head of state for nearly all of the countries taking part in the games, kept his cheering diplomatically neutral rather than risk causing offence.
William and Harry meet the Australian and England hockey team.
Not being able to locate a video of the ful opening ceremony, there will be video clips available on the sport taking taking place. Wth again PR overload of this couple, as with the Olympic games, photographers focus on Kate and the boys expressions - might be such intense focus for an agenda.
Finding this medal from 1958, the British Empire and Commonwealth Games features a chain. With people bound in chains, there is concern when people are being enslaved with man made laws today.
In this video from the opening ceremony in Glasgow, South African singer Pumeza Matshikiza sings while the message in the background reads for all to see FREEDOM COME ALL YE
This video is titled Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games song - Flame and yet, this video was uploaded in 2012. Flame is the song title...the lyrics touched me deeply. Perhaps this is from 2012 and re-titled and yet the lyrics still apply today. The world is visually depicted in the video.
Among other photographs, discus thrower Dan Greaves won England's first Commonwealth gold in the track and field after throwing a distance of 59.21 metres.
All it takes is for one person to start a revolution of change and people follow. In achievement with sport, every winner sets a new goal to meet the next time. And ever participant is a winner for they will have started on that cycle to become better and improve in time too.
With Queen Elizabeth being the Head of the Commonwealth nations, the Commonwealth of Isreal was once named and yet Isreal is not just a land, Israel are a people. We are all Israelites.. The Queen has distanced herself from the conflict in the Holy Land and yet her family are connected with Jerusalem. This is especially so now with Prince Phillip being given land with the building that houses the Israeli government.
Jerusalem written by William Blake, has become an anthem in England -Jerusalem means city of peace. The anthem was chosen for Wiliam and Kates wedding - a vision for peace or an agenda not known.
Wikipeda writes 'Israelis and Palestinians both claim Jerusalem as their capital, as Israel maintains its primary governmental institutions there and the State of Palestine ultimately foresees it as its seat of power; however, neither claim is widely recognized internationally.' - 'Today, the status of Jerusalem remains one of the core issues in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.'
