Video:
The Queen has unveiled statues of herself and the Duke of Edinburgh at Canterbury Cathedral to mark her Diamond Jubilee. Carved by sculptor Nina Bilbey, the striking figures capture the royal couple looking more youthful and wearing garter robes. The statues weigh around half a ton each and were created from French limestone by Ms Bilbey, whose commissions also include statues at Hampton Court Flower Show and St Pancras railway station in London-

Still riding at 88, the Queen makes the most of the sunshine on trot through Windsor Great Park (but leaves the hard hat at home)
The Queen is amazing.

There can't be many 88 years olds horse riding! I'm so glad she is still able to do it and hopefully she can keep it up for years to come. The horses are gorgeous.

The DM is amazing, too. This story is almost identical to one which appeared on June 2, 2014!
The Queen rides out on her Fell pony in Windsor Great Park | Daily Mail Online

I had never heard the story about the Queen galloping down the course at Ascot in 1961. (according to this paragraph, included in both stories: Since then, the royal stables have been home to a succession of steeds, among them Betsy, a black farm-bred horse who was her mount of choice in the 50's, and Surprise, a grey gelding whom the Queen famously galloped down the course at Ascot in 1961.)
