Let's hope it's swifter and less bumpy than in 1842! Albert, who had a delicate stomach, suffered from motion sickness on the train and was unsettled at the speed of it--44 miles an hour! He requested they go slower on the journey back. His wife loved it. She wrote crushingly, 'I find the motion so very easy, far more so than a carriage and cannot understand how anyone can suffer from it.'

Bother the mail. The Queen was in "Happy Grandma" mode when she visited the school. In almost every shot she smiling and totally engaged in what's going on.

Meanwhile, the Duke, asking what I thought was a fair question, seemed to cause chaos by it. The worst part of it is I don't think the teacher knew what he actually meant by "writing" anyway.

It never gets boring with the Duke of Edinburgh, does it?

The Queen has released an official statement on her Birthday commenting on the "sombre National mood" after three terror attacks and the Grenfell tower block fire.

I don't recall the Queen releasing such a statement on other birthdays but I could be wrong, either way I don't recall it being such a poignant message.

London fire: Queen reflects on 'sombre national mood' - BBC News


Furthermore many point out the Queen has shown politicians of all parties the best way to respond to a disaster. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40304876
(IMO its a little easier for the Queen as people don't often like politicians especially so close to an election, but that said HM has perfected her response to such disasters after the criticism she herself faced in the 90s)

A lot has changed in the last 20 years. There isn't much the RF can do in a physically pratical way in the face of disaster other than be there. The Queen and William did just that. Little things can go a long way, it won't change anything or help the grieving process, but it will be remembered, she was there.

Everytime I see Her Majesty smiling there is one song in my ears: Stevie Wonder's "Isn't she lovely?"

She has a very wonderful smile.

I'm very busy with Queen Sonja right now, but just wanted to say that HM looks great and very sweet, as usual.
