Both of them are works of art and beautifully composed! Thanks so much for sharing them with us!

When Prince Philip is listed as Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, I have not seen any middle name(s) listed. When he is listed as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, I have not seen any middle name(s) listed. Does he have a middle name?

Queen Elizabeth II (as Princess Elizabeth) married in the year 1947. Which of her bridesmaids inherited a title but did not marry?
In the Sunday Dispatch, in April of 1953, Leslie Pine, the editor of Burke's Peerage, stated:
The Queen has at her side a man of character and ability, proven in war and in peace, to assist her in the heavy responsibilities ahead.

During the summer of 1959, Queen Elizabeth II visited the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew.
The Queen visited Palm House.
She took tea in the Orangery.

Prince Philip's parents only gave him the one name. They had other issues in their marriage and lives at the time and didn't bother with extra names for their son.

I thought they all married. I know one of her attendants at her coronation never married and inherited a title. That was Lady Jane Heathcote-Drummond-Willoughby, 18, daughter of the 3rd Earl of Ancaster, the Lord Great Chamberlain.

She inherited one of her father’s titles and fortune and became 28th Baroness Willoughby de Eresby.

The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh at the 1993 Commonwealth Institute. The Queen was about to read her speech but she left her glasses behind. She then had to get Prince Philip to read the speech for her-

A baby Prince Charles was 'fascinated' by his newborn sister Princess Anne, according to a rare letter written by the Queen just days after the birth.

Less than two years old at the time, Charles treated Anne with 'great care', the Queen wrote to her friend Mrs Tanner.

She also wrote that 'it will be fun when they are able to play together'.

Once in a while The Queen and Prince Philip shows up to the theatre and other members of the royal family go every now and then but they don't go to the theatre like they used to.

They're in their late 80's and early 90's now. An evening in front of the fireplace probably is more appealing to them than a night out.

Exciting news - one actress who has always reminded me of Princess Elizabeth is Jessica Raine from Call The Midwife, I think she would be great for the part!

Jessica Raine would be a good choice for this role.

The Queen will be 90 years old on 21 April, 2016. This would be something to watch.
Hope the programme is historically accurate.

If God spare her life, I can't wait to see what will be planned for Her Majesty's 90th Birthday. That's a celebration I want to see.

This is a dramatisation - how good it is depends on who they get to support the production with FACTS.

The casting is crucial and will be very expensive (if they get the right people); locations can also make or break.

Potential to go horribly wrong.

Can't wait to see this.
Robert Hardy for an older Prince Philip, or older Winston Churchhill?
And I wonder who they will get to play Diana, Camilla, and presidents Bush one and two, Clinton and Obama? Mandela?
And I know that the queen has been through 12 US presidencies, but I've only been alive for 4.
And of course what about the leading lady?
Like I said I can't wait to see it. Wish I could take part, and be the Queen of
course .

The designer Nicky Haslam once had the opportunity to ask the Queen what she thought about the tricky question of taste. It is not difficult to imagine the air of withering detachment in the royal voice when the reply came: “I don’t think it helps.”
This week, we were told that the American internet company Netflix is planning to make a 20-part, £100 million TV series about Queen Elizabeth and her life. The promise is that it will be in the best possible taste. But it is impossible not to view the plan as a transgression, if not of taste, then at least of decorum.
The scriptwriter is Peter Morgan, who wrote Helen Mirren’s The Queen as well as Frost/Nixon and the Lauda/Hunt motor-racing movie Rush. So he has a fine record in dealing sensitively and intelligently with human icons and monumental egos. But is such a series more likely to diminish or enhance the Queen’s imperious stature?
