Now that was good for a giggle or two. The amazing thing too about it is that both women look approximately the same age in that picture.

You know, The Queen actually look good with that hairdo. She has told her hairdresser that she want to change up her hairstyle, but she changes her mind at the last minute.

HM always seems to pick that rather old Jaguar when she wants to drive herself, rather than the many newer cars she has at her disposal. She much like it personally.

It is odd to see anyone driving without a seatbelt though, I know the Queen never wears one but it is a bit jarring.

I've always loved seeing HM doing things that she probably doesn't get a chance to do very often and its mostly while she's at Windsor that she gets a bit of her own life to herself with riding in Windsor Great Park, driving herself to church and from what I've come to believe, pop around for visits with friends and family after church.

For a woman that is fast approaching 92 years old, she's an inspiration to us all.

The Queen drive in the manner in which I prefer...simple driving. I think it’s best to not be an everyday driver.

I just realized - I don't know this...

I know where the Royal Apartments are and Where St. George's is. But where does the Queen get in the car for the drive?

What’s going on? That’s two days the Queen’s had audiences and no photos from BP.

I was wondering where the Queen is at the moment? It's rare for us to go over a week essentially without seeing pictures of her at this time of the year. I know the weather's been awful but to not see photos of some of her BP audiences is odd. I hope she's not unwell.

During the week, The Queen is usually at Buckingham Palace. She go to Windsor Castle on the weekends. She’s spending a little more time at Windsor and work from there, if she don’t have to be at the Headquarters for official reasons.

She was certainly in residence at BP earlier this week.

The church she attends most regularly is I think the one close to Royal Lodge rather than St George's. St George's is much larger whereas the Royal Chapel of All Saints is smaller and more private.

Yes, I've been seeing pics of her driving that Jaguar for years on end now. She's nearly 92 so I'm sure modern cars might be confusing for her now with so many automatic features.

She probably likes to keep it simple.

I always find it funny watching her driving and wearing a hat. It looks like she could be returning home from the supermarket.

She had audiences at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday and Wednesday. Usually she travels to Windsor on Thursday or Friday, so I assume she’s there now.
For some reason BP hasn’t published any photos from the Queen’s last 3 audiences, which they usually always do. No idea what is going on with them.

Today, March 6, Queen Elizabeth visited the International Maritime Organization in London to mark the 70th year of its formation and adoption of the International Maritime Organisation Convention. The Queen had opened its headquarters in 1983.
