The Queen looked great but boy... The Duke of Edinburgh... He looked immensely frail to me!

He is 96. He looks like a 96-year-old man. I find the queen looking very good.

He isn't 96 yet though - don't age him too soon. He will be 96 on the 10th June so still 5 months until he reaches that mark but he did look like a very old and frail man and not the wonderfully handsome man he was in his youth.

It is a little bit of a no-win situation for the Palace, isn't it ? If the Queen doesn't make any publuc appearances, people will say she's terribly ill, but, on the other hand, if she only makes occasional, discreet appearances as she did today, people will suspect they are trying to show her in public to hide her true health problems. Either way, the media are likely to be skeptical (Br. Eng. sceptical) about her health.

What? This is a very strong and healthy 90-year old who is still out riding. She only had a cold and both the BBC, ITV, Sky News and all reliable sources/experts have gone out of their way to tell us that she is up and about. And the British media doesn't look skeptical at all.

And to those who think Phillip looks frail: He is 95 and walks like a 40-year old.

I think the newspapers are being more sceptical than the tv news, this is probably because newspapers have to fill their pages with speculation and longer commentary whereas tv news only have to report the facts.

Yes, but that was before she attended church. The newspapers (I've seen) doesn't look skeptical at all now.

That is the award usually presented on the first Sunday of the year but given that that Sunday was also New Year's Day it may always have been planned to be a week later. This is often her first engagement of the year.

The Queen has been reported as dying in the US tabloids too. And those tabloids say William and Catherine are about to become king and queen. As usual, they ignore Prince Charles and Camilla and have no clue as to British succession.

When you really think about it, those reports are stretching the truth. The Queen *is* dying. In fact, we all are. That process starts the day we are born.

HM The Queen (90 years young) looks great and healthy. And look at her smile in the pictures in the daily fail article in iceflower's post.

Video:
The Queen has arrived at a Women’s Institute event in the Norfolk village of West Newton today, as Her Majesty and Duke of Edinburgh continue their break at nearby Sandringham.

That is the same as Charles and Camilla's visit to the flood concert the previous Friday - again not in the CC.

It does show that the royals do do things that aren't officially recognised by HM when she approves the CC each day and in this past week there are at least two examples of that now.

The Queen makes a visit to the WI every year while at Sandringham but it is not an 'official' engagement as it doesn't make the CC.

I believe she is a member of her local WI branch and she does these visits as a ‘’private member’’ and not as an official royal duty.
