True she has made a few private visits, but even then her visits are never spontaneous. Security in both countires are well aware and prepared for her visits, and of course the British government is aware that she has left the country.

Regarding the passport question, I understand HM has no passport but what surname are on the rest of the RF's passports? Do they use Mountbatten-Windsor or is there no surname on them? Also, is their title "HRH" on their passport anywhere?

It's amazing to think that the Queen is probably the most well-travelled person in history and yet has never owned a passport.

Since the Queen probably doesn't have to even enter the terminal buildings of the airports she lands in, I'd doubt that passport control is necessary. I think the Queen gets driven straight to her the door of her areoplane and picked up by official car when she lands without going anywhere the airport terminals.

Well this is why I said "impersonators who arrive a little before HM is expected".
I suppose that to effect such a subterfuge would require such a sophisticated conspiracy that it's not worth worrying about, but still ... I figured there would be some formal presentation of a seal or something.

Thanks, all.

Wow. That was beautiful. Nicely done. It was really interesting to watch her age and see the changes in her face.

That was fun. Watching that you can really see glimpses of all her children and grandchildren (and her ancesters) in her face. Lovely, thanks.

Does anyone have any idea if the Queen's personal reflections on having two more children with such a big gap (Charles was 12 and Anne was 10 when Andrew was born) being an older mother too (being 38 when Edward was born) and practically starting all over again (Charles being 16 when new baby, Edward was born)...

Watched the doco about Prince Charles reflections about his mother on her Jubilee and it showed footage of Charles getting some kind of honour (liege lord thing with crown and cloak?) at the age of 21, which made me think that the Queen had two young adult children (Charles, 21 and Anne, 19) and two little kids *still* (Andrew, 9 and Edward, 5)...WOW!

I doubt the Queen herself has ever commented on this, but I did see an interview with Andrew in which he was asked about it. The interviewer asked if it was like having two separate families and he said absolutely not. He told a story about how they would have pillow fights and somehow it always ended up being Charles and Anne vs Andrew and Edward, haha.

Now that's not really fair, is it! It would have been better if it was Charles and Andrew against Anne and Edward, or Charles and Edward against Anne and Andrew! Or, Anne against all three of the boys! That would have shown how tough she is!

I think the ceremony that you are talking about is when Charles was invested as the Prince of Wales on 1st July 1969, at Caernarfon Castle in Wales. He was 20 at the time.
