Where the Queen and Prince Philip are involved I'd be fairly sure nothing is overlooked, including the need for seatbelts on state managed journeys.

However the use of seatbelts on open roads is a law of the land, so are there exclusion policies in place allowing the Queen to be driven unbelted?

WoW! Its amazing to think its been 70 years since they announced their engagement and today they're still going strong together. Through thick and thin and the ups and downs and everything else that has been thrown at these two people for seven decades, theirs is definitely a love story of the second Elizabethan age.

Yes, really amazing! And I look forward to videos/pictures of what I believe will be a Westminster Abbey Service and a dinner hosted by Charles in November.

The Queen lost her best friend Margaret last year, how lovely that her daughter-in-law has been chosen to take up such a very priviegded position.

I've followed her very closely since 2006 (the year I turned 18) and have read/heard so many lovely/heartwarming stories about her kindness, her down to earth and funny personality, so this doesn't surprise me at all.

We also used to se much more of this in public untill 2012 when she stopped with walkabouts and driving in open cars (the queenmobile) and started to appear a bit more reserved in public, but still with her amazing smile intact.

Portrait of a 70-year marriage: Christmas cards sent by the Queen and Prince Philip over the years go up for auction - giving a poignant glance at the enduring bond between the couple and their family

From young parents to devoted grandparents, these remarkable Christmas cards capture the enduring bond the Queen and Prince Philip share with their family.

The photographs, taken between 1971 and 2001, show how the royal couple's relationship changed and strengthened as they lived through decades of shifting family dynamics and political upheaval.

The couple, who celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary in November, sent the cards to an unnamed recipient each year, each time signing their own names in pen.

The collection of notes will go under the hammer in Cirencester, Gloustershire, tomorrow.

Dame Judi Dench is to spearhead a project to build a “Commonwealth conservatory” dedicated to the Queen to celebrate her 100th birthday, writes Roya Nikkhah.

The 45ft-high glass building in central London will be known as the Queen’s Commonwealth Conservatory and will be filled with plants from the 52 Commonwealth nations.
Summary by me - not translated from the article: It would be built on the site in London’s Regent’s Park of the former Winter Garden, and it's hoped that the building, which will include a lecture theatre, library, gallery and cafe, will become a tourist attraction and legacy of Her Majesty's record-breaking reign.

A charitable foundation has been established to raise £40m required for the project - it's hoped it will be met from public/private donations. Charles has been approached as a potential patron and Mark Evans (the project’s founder) said the conservatory would be a wonderful legacy and happy monument.

A rare letter from the Queen to her midwife was written five months after the birth of Prince Edward in 1964

Has anyone heard or seen any official plans yet to mark the Platinum Wedding Anniversary on the 20th November. It is now only 8 weeks away so I would expect that if there is going to be a thanksgiving service or other events it would have been announced by now.

The palace come under pressure (in March) from politicians/media to celebrate her Sapphire Jubilee. But according to people at the Palace, the theory was that the public will get a bit sick of jubilees if you have too many of them. Far better to focus on the really big ones, and mark the minor anniversaries in a low-key way. So the next large-scale celebrations will be in 2022, when the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee (it's in fact already being planned).

Wedding Anniversaries:
The Queen's wedding anniversaries have not been celebrated with super-large-scale celebrations such as her Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees or the large celebrations of her 60th, 80th and 90th Birthdays, but they have been marked.

The Silver Wedding Anniversary 1972:
November 20th: There was a carriage procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey where they attended a Service of Thanksgiving. (televised)

There was also a privat party at the palace in the evening.

The Golden Wedding Anniversary 1997:
November 19th: They attended a lunch at the Guildhall, where HM said ''he is someone who doesn't take easily to compliments, but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years and I and his whole family, in this and many other countries, owe him a debt far greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know'. (televised)

They attended a golden Gala at the Festival Hall in London in the evening. (televised)

November 20th: They attended a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. (televised)

There was a private party at Windsor Castle in the evening.

The Diamond Wedding Anniversary 2007:
November 18th: Charles hosted a dinner for his parents at Clarence House.

November 19th: A National Service of Thanksgiving was held at Westminster Abbey. (televised)

The Platinum Wedding Anniversary 2017:
It was (after the Sapphire Jubilee discussions in March) the opinion of several royal watchers – that the Palace instead wanted to celebrate the Queen and Philip's 70th wedding anniversary in November, but we haven't heard anything since.

If it's going to be marked (as I think it will), then I think we'll see a private dinner (maybe hosted by Charles) and a televisied Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.

I'm guessing that some announcements about the celebrations will be made next month, once The Queen come back to Buckingham Palace.

Thanks! I'm just slightly surprised they have left it so late to announce anything! We will watch this space.
