I just adore Annie Liebovitz' ability to compose a portrait photo. Prince Phillip with the Queen is spectacular. You can't get them to make physical contact - so how do you (the photog) show that they are as one? Annie nailed it!

I love the photo of the Queen and Prince Philip, and the one of the Queen and Anne was especially nice. This series of photos are absolutely gorgeous, and who better to accompany their mistress the Queen in one of them than her faithful and loving little friends. She is so identified with her corgis.

The one with Philip is wonderful. Captures the true relationship without physical contact

I love the one with Anne. Great seeing mom and daughter together

But my favorite are the ones with the corgis. No better way to capture her.

These made me think of the documentary that showed HM's last photo shoot with Leibovitz. It was edited in such a way that it appeared HM got mad and stormed off (or something like that.). Just goes to show how creative editing can veer the story a completely different way than what actually happened.

The photo of The Queen and Prince Philip looks nice, although they appear to be to old people wondering what's going on.

The objective of a portraiture photography is to make the viewers seem as if they're right there looking at the photo's subjects and Ann Leibovitz captured that with the photo of HM and the DoE. You don't see The Queen and her consort the DoE but rather Elizabeth and Philip at home at Balmoral. I love this photo and its one of the best I've seen.

This. When i first saw the picture, my first thought was that i was admiring two eldery people in love and comfortable with each other.

The Annie Leibovitz photo of the Queen and Duke in their sitting room at Windsor castle by the fire is one of my favourites and they look so at ease.

I loved all the photos, especially that with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and that where she stands on the steps of the east terrace at Windsor Castle with Willow, Wulcan, Holly and Candy.

On 10 June, The Queen, along with The Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family will be in attendance for The National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral. From there The Queen. Prince Philip, Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall will be hosting a lunch at Buckingham Palace for the visiting Governor-Generals. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with other Royal Family members will be hosted with special guests at the Guildhall.
I posted this in January:
Queen marks her 90th birthday | Mail Travel

Kick-off is on the Friday with a National Service of Thanksgiving for the life of the Queen at St Paul’s Cathedral. June 10 is also Prince Philip’s 95th birthday giving another reason to celebrate with the Royal family. The royal family will take part in a carriage procession for the two miles from Buckingham Palace to and from St Paul’s via the Mall, for all to see.
Several of the other travel sites wrote the same and (as I thought) it looks like they've been wrong again. I think the Queen and other members of the royal family will arrive/leave by cars as they did for her 80th birthday and the Diamond Jubilee. But unlike 2012, this is going to be much more low-key and I don't even think the traffic will be closed. This is not a Jubilee, and the celebrations is therefore more similar to what we saw in 2006.

The Queen turns 90: How to host a street party
Quote:
Celebrations are set to take place across the nation for the Queen’s 90th birthday.

On Sunday June 12, the climax of the birthday celebrations, the Queen herself will host an official party along The Mall in London for 10,000 well wishers. The road will be transformed into a giant street party for The Patron's Lunch, with guests eating a picnic lunch and being entertained by street performers and circus acts.

If you are not among the crowds and want to host your own street party to mark the occasion, follow this guide to ensure it is a stress-free event.

Perhaps, but that's one of the things that disappoint me with the British royals, they adopted a habit of watering down their celebrations. The Queen is 90 and probably won't see 100, so let's go out with a bang. Carriage procession and all.

If there's a person who's not watering down her celebrations, then it is the Queen. Her Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees were celebrated in a much grander style that these of Queen Margrethe, King Carl Gustaf and King Harald.

And when it comes to the Queen's birthdays:

Both her 80th and 90th birthdays were/is actualy celbrated much bigger than her Danish, Swedish and Norwegian counterparts.

Her 90th birthday:

April 21: Walkabout and a drive through the streests of Windsor in her queenmobile to greet the crowds + the lighting of 1,000 beacons across the country and worldwide - televised by BBC One, BBC News and Sky News.

Private dinner at Windsor Castle in the evening.

May 15: Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration Pageant. 90-minute extravaganza with 900 horses and more than 1,500 riders and performers in the private grounds of Windsor Castle - televised by ITV.

June 10: Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral - televised by BBC One.

The Queen, Philip, Charles and Camilla will also be hosting a lunch at Buckingham Palace for the visiting Governor-Generals. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with other Royal Family members will be hosted with special guests at the Guildhall.

June 11: Trooping the Colour in all its pomp and pageantry. The Queen and other members of the Royal family travel to and from Buckingham Palace in carriages, meaning there is ample opportunity to see her for anyone standing on The Mall. She will then appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at 1pm to watch a fly-past. This will be another good chance for members of the public to see the Queen, albeit from a distance - televised by BBC One as usual.

June 12: The Patron's Lunch - televised by BBC One.

Can you ask for more? This is as an royal expert said it: the biggest birthday celebration on earth.

The Diamond Jubliee was great, but the best celebration I've seen was the Golden Jubilee. It also included her European royal families. I'm looking forward to more of her birthday celebrations.

There were more foreign guests present during the Diamond Jubilee than there was for the Golden Jubilee. There was a lunch at Windsor Castle hosted by the Queen and a dinner at Buckingham Palace hosted by Charles on may 18, 2012. Some of them were also pressent for The Diamond Jubilee Armed Forces Parade at Windsor: May 19, 2012.

Yeah, but it would be great if they would attend her 90th Thanksgiving Service though. I'm looking forward to it all though. It would've been nice if the sovereigns could participate in the Garter Service too.

I think the major reason why we won't see a lot of foreign royals for the 90th birthday is that this is a personal celebration of a milestone in HM's life. The Jubilee celebrations were celebrations of her public role as a monarch.

The Queen never attends private events on the continent, and very rarely even sends someone to attend in her stead. Like the birthday of Margrethe or anniversary of Harald.Yes state occasions like weddings and such someone usually gets sent, but even smaller weddings often not. So not really surprised the European houses don't reciprocate.
