No Phillip on the plane? But I don't think the first time she left alone via plane from summer holiday.

Prince Philip already left Balmoral. I think he may be at Windsor or with friends.

Such sloppy reporting yet again from the DM.

Queen Elizabeth II is the most commonly depicted person on paper money around the world. But how does each country pick which portrait to use?

Thanks Dman! One of the better articles I've read from that Richard Kay guy.

You're right, Royal Norway, its an exceptional article and I probably wouldn't have taken the time to read it without your praise of it.

I absolutely love the idea that these two lovebirds have been getting away to just live, love and laugh at Wood Farm. To be able to just enjoy the day as it comes and just be with each other without all the royal trappings that have surrounded them almost from the day they married.

This seems quite sad to me. It’s almost as though he is in a nursing home where he can’t be visited daily. Having seen the devastating effect of my parents-in-laws’ separation after 68 years of marriage (my MIL went into a nursing home), I can’t imagine how HM and the DoE feel.

I’m sure it’s a pleasant existence for Philip, but I don’t understand the deliberate separation.

I was surprised at how good the article was. Normally I don't bother with the D.M.

ladongas the article addresses your question.

Just LOVE the pic of the Queen (Princess Elizabeth then) sitting in the chair and Phillip standing beside her..both of them have huge smiles while looking at each other.

After watching the DoE for years, I can almost guarantee that if he didn't want to be at Wood Farm, he wouldn't be. He's not incarcerated there as he comes and goes from Windsor Castle as we've seen from the article and they spend time as a couple at Wood Farm.

The Queen and the DoE have such a marriage that they don't have to be in each other's back pockets 24/7. Wood Farm seems like an idyllic place to have for a "bolthole" and just get away from everyday life. What is amazing is that this couple really didn't openly do the "retirement" thing until they both were well into their 90s. Its hard to believe but Philip is going on 97 next June. I think he deserves down time to just read and paint or do whatever the mood hits him.

Of course I read the article, and then I re-read it. I still don’t understand the deliberate separation.

They still see each other. I know a number of couples where 1 spouse is retired and the other isn't. You will often see the retired spouse off doing their own thing.

Yes, I know of couples who ‘do their own thing’. None of them are nearly 100 years old, though.

It is their life to live as they wish, of course- I just find it odd. Hate to think of HM sitting alone at the breakfast table (just her and her Tupperware containers).

Thank you Dman. Knowing the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have created their own little bit of “heaven on earth”, away from the prying eyes of the world, warms the heart. It’s nice to think of them sitting in front of a fire with a cup of tea just being together.
