Read an amusing story in one of the articles recently about Elizabeth and Philip's wedding. I think it was on the History Extra website. Seems Philip got pulled over for speeding the night before the wedding on the way to the rehearsal. Told the cop "I'm in a hurry! I have an appointment with the Archbishop of Canterbury!". Of course, I guess by then the cop recognized Philip and let him go.
Osipi-Eya wasn't asking a question, she was writing what the DM article said. She posted the article about what happened to the men in later years.

The older they get the more I appreciate the Queen and Prince Phillip. They are remarkable people and excellent role models when it comes to many things, including aging. The reason they're doing so well is they stay active and curious, exercise daily and keep their minds active. Appropo of nothing, I came across this article today; in addition to the castles, jewels, land, etc., The Queen owns....a McDonald's!!! https://nypost.com/2017/11/06/queen-...ttingly-regal/

The Queen, 91, horse riding near Windsor Castle | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The temperature might be dropping as the end of the year approaches.

But that has not stopped the Queen from venturing out to take in some of crisp winter air.

The monarch, 91, was spotted riding her beloved black pony in the grounds of Windsor Castle this morning.

Thank you Royal Norway for the info showing HM still out riding at her age. Just amazing that she still has this much energy at her age, I so admire her and hope to see HM doing this the same time next year and the year after. As long as HM is not galloping over fences and water I think she will be just fine riding......

Not sure if this belongs in this thread, but I am very interested in reading "My Husband and I: The Inside Story Of 70 Years Of Royal Marriage," by Ingrid Seward. Does anyone know how reliable this book is or if it is just a compilation of gossip? Thanks.

Weird title for a book that was authored by someone who is not the Queen. Just that alone would steer me away from it.

Not really - for decades it was a running joke that she would start many speeches with 'My husband and I' and that is all that is really alluding to.

Plus, as a rare bonus Granny's Chips brooch looks outstanding on that dark blue dress! You really get a feeling for how huge those stones are.

Just met a German lady who attended a Buckingham Palace garden party once some time ago.

She sat down with an empty chair beside her, and at some point the Queen sat in it, making small talk with those on either side.

This lady was impressed with how well the Queen spoke German with her. (Didn't get onto what they spoke about, but still after all these years, this was the impression left by the Queen on this lady - her excellent German language skills.)
