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?

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

What a sweet story and what a surprise for it to be published in the Guardian. Would've been unthinkable 15 years ago.

The article says 1967, Queen born in 1926. So she would have been 41.

More about the Queen's death - Alastair Campbell interviewed the Archbishop of Canterbury for British GQ Magazine - I've bolded Campbell questions:
Archbishop Justin Welby hopes he does not have to oversee the Queen's funeral | British GQ
Quote:
How Justin Welby feels about the plans for the Queen's funeral

Alastair Campbell: Do you lose sleep thinking you might have to preside over the Queen’s funeral?

Justin Welby: I don’t lose sleep and I do hope I don’t have to do that.

Do you think about the enormity of it?

Yes, I do. It’s enormous whoever does it – God willing someone else – because it is an enormous public event. But as a parish priest, at every funeral you think about the enormity of it.

But the Queen is different. It is going to be one of the most extraordinary events of our lifetime.

It will. I don’t want to get into details because it is not something I want to talk about, but the Queen is the most extraordinary person, one of the most extraordinary people I have ever met, in every possible way. When it happens it will be the most extraordinary historic moment.
As I wrote in March and April, I adore the Queen and want her to live forever, and I dread the day she dies. But I do find the death/funeral (Operation London Bridge) of the British monarch, reigning Queen of 16 countries, figurehead of 2 billion people, the most popular and iconic head of state (many would say person) in the world (although it may sound a bit morbid) very interesting in a historical perspective.

It’s going to be an enormous historical event and I think everyone is dreading such an event. Her family and everyone else. It’s on everyone’s minds because we’re in the last years of her reign now.
