Shortly after the 6th February. She always spends her Ascension Day at Sandringham so she should be back in London next week.

How interesting! I wonder if HM will watch the performance in the theatre at a regular performance, or have a private showing?

She look like her mother is some ways, but she remind me more of her grandmother, Queen Mary.

It might be just me but the Queens coats always look too big for her.
The shoulders appear to be way too wide and they are shapeless. I'm not asking for anything at all figure hugging at her age that would be terrible but something fitting better on her shoulders
Unless there could be a medical reason for it covering something

First- First article- Lovely! The Queen looks divine!
Second article- First picture- priceless! Love the Duke's tie!
Second- Didn't Helen Mirren star in the play? And Robert Hardy before he fell? So now the monarch is going, and 2 of my favorite actors won't be there? Figures.
Third- Nice pictures, but really dislike HM outfit!

I never been a fan of HM's large and shapeless overcoats. It's cold so she have to wrap up though.

Her Majesty first visited HMS Ocean in 1998 to officially name the ship and again in 2003 to present a new colour to the Royal Navy.

It is 22:30 on 5th February 1952. About the time George VI retired to bed . He died in the night. Elizabeth becomes Queen.

I find it touching that the Queen stays at Sandringham until the anniversary of her father's death passes. To me, it means she still holds him very near and dear to her heart and her memories with her family stay strong. If anything, I regret that she was in Africa at the time of his passing and wasn't with him when he died. Sometimes those "last words" mean so very much.
