Are those gifts or fancy doggie bags...maybe taking a piece of cake home perhaps.

Very nice of the grandchildren to take Phillip and the Queen out for a birthday dinner. Very nice touch indeed. Any pictures of Beatrice?

That was really an exhausting day for a ninety-year-old, though! Still, it was a lovely gesture. Too bad Harry couldn't make it. For once I did not like Kate's outfit (but I never like anything by Stella McCartney, I feel she is highly overrated). Eugenie looked pretty, but Zara's dress was very very short- another inch longer would have been perfect.

Well as Phillip said, he is 90 and he is going to start cutting back on his engagements. So I wouldn't be surprised if William (when his schedule permits) or Edward start picking up more of his engagements. The Queen has a full schedule but she is delegating more to Charles and Anne as well.

The Duke and the Queen were treated to dinner at The Waterside Inn, joined by five of their grandchildren.

IMO I think she was prob just really tired. I haven't noticed a huge difference(in terms of aging) in the Queen in quite a few years.IMO none of them look fab in the dinner pictures they all look understandably tired.

The article said only Harry missing from granchildren so does that mean Louise and James went? Or are they to young and the DM left them put of grandchildren?

Neither Harry, James and Louise were present at the dinner. I assume that James and Louise were too young to attend....not sure of the time of the dinner. Still no pics of Beatrice though?
