Of course the Queen should be at the Normandy Landings commemoration.
But of course there is hardly any reference to Britain's or the wider Commonwealth's role in Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan. Why would there be? We and the Americans landed on different beaches. The average British, never mind American, soldier did not know Montgomery personally.
Neither the Americans nor the ex-Soviets have ever regarded us as particularly important in the War, nor have the Americans ever regarded this particular War as particularly important at all.
And note that there is no "special relationship" blather here. The French call D-Day "primarily a Franco-American affair" and the Americans do not disagree, even though it is factually incorrect. Returning the compliment of America's real, and entirely justifiable, attitude towards every foreign country without discrimination earns the French the respect that we insist on denying ourselves. As this whole affair more than amply demonstrates.
