I don't know if this is the right thread but mystery and royalty lovers should love a series of three books by Canadian writer C. C. Benison - Death at Buckingham Palace, Death at Sandringham, and Death at Windsor Castle - featuring housemaid Jane Bee and co-sleuth - Her Majesty! They're quite fun and have peeks into the workings of the royal residences.

Thanks for the information on the books. They look like something I would enjoy reading and after checking, I've found them for dirt cheap at abesbooks.com. Will definitely order them.

They are very enjoyable. She did plan another one to two but didn't go ahead because of Diana's death I believe.

I wondered why there were no more in this series.

PS: for mystery lovers there's a website called "Stop You're Killing Me" with a listing of just about every mystery and author ever published. Great site.

To mark their Diamond Wedding Anniversary on November 20, 2007 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip re-visited Broadlands, where, 60 years ago in 1947, they spent their wedding night.

The Queen has reached the top 50 of the longest reigning monarch.

In 1 year 220 days she will surpass Queen Victoria.

I think you've typoed there - she only has to reign until 10 September 2015 (1 year and 9 days as of 22 August 2014) to surpass Victoria.

If she reigns until 27 May 2024 she'll surpass Louis XIV as longest reigned European monarch, and if she reigns until 17 October 2034 she'll be the longest reigning monarch of verifiable dates, unless Bhumibol Aduladej of Thailand beats her to it (he has about 6 years of reigning on her).

Exactly.

In order to surpass the last date, she has to live to 108.

If she lived 12 years passed that (which would be somewhat unlikely) to rule for 95 years she would surpass the longest reigned monarch of unverifiable dates.

Awesome the US and my own "Home and Native land" are showing interest in hosting the next two Games if it happens and it sure sounds like the incentive is there. Here's hoping!!

The Queens Horse, Estimate, has been stripped of Ascot Gold Cup second place after returning a positive test for morphine back in July.

The morphine has since been traced back to a contaminated batch of feed.

I searched for Kelvin Bruce (©kelvinbruce) and couldn't find a link to his photos. If you find one, let us know.
If he is a pap, shouldn't we be horrified that as he "spotted" the Duke walking the grounds he snapped his photo. Because really, a line is a line.
It's possible, I suppose, that Kelvin was invited to "spot" the Duke.
But, if not, I'm just saying.
And these are lovely photos.

Considering the amount of journalists who are overseas reporting in dangerous conditions about terrible events, one might have thought spending two years trying to find out if the Queen pays a TV licence worse hardly a worthy past time.

Obviously the royal household gets these perks and I suspect government does too - is there a TV licence for 10 Downing Street? Perhaps that could be the journalise next big story!
