How lovely of Her Majesty and The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall to pose for photographs with Jessica and her teddy bear. Some very special memories were made, that's for sure .

The Queen will attend the Second Ashes Test between England and Australia at Lord's on July 18. She'll meet both teams.

Bet Philip is green with envy. He'd have loved this.

Has anyone heard any peeps about whether the Duke will be moving to Balmoral to recuperate? I do hope so. I know it can be chilly up there, but I'd hate to see him stuck alone at home.

I love how Her Majesty asked if it was all right if she could watch the game....
Like they would say No......
I love these informal moments.
And I love the Queen's outfit......

Queen keeps cool in wide-brimmed bonnet as she visits England and Aussie cricket teams at Lords | Mail Online

An interesting line in this article: The Queen will be travelling to Balmoral for her traditional summer break next week but it is not thought Philip will be among her party.

I looked at this and thought sad at first that he couldn't accompany her but then realised that he must be getting a lot better otherwise she wouldn't leave him for an extended period of time - so to me the message is: I am doing what I normally do because my husband is getting better and even if we can't be together at Balmoral this year I still have time to be with him.

This is strange though. The Scottish "break" at Balmoral does include some royal engagements, but mainly its private.

I do not understand how the Duke cannot travel in easy stages to Balmoral (or by air maybe?). She can't leave him for 2 months, surely?

I'm now not feeling quite so relaxed about his health

Do you think she would leave him if there was anything to worry about?

She has no engagements in August, other than the audiences with the PM and that can just as easily be done at Windsor where she would surely be if Philip was still ailing.

We were told he would have two months off which takes him to the end of August.

The fact that she has been away from him at Holyrood and Sandringham tells me he is recovering but not yet up to doing the travel to Balmoral - which could also have something to do with the temperatures etc in the castle - they often need fires even in summer up there, along with the often soft rain which would mean he couldn't be outside.

I think this is very much a decision that says everything is OK with Philip - and that he will be back to business come the Autumn by her side. OK for a 92 year old who has had surgery mind you not necessarily OK for a 30 year old.

from the same article:

But the Duke appears to be making good progress after last month’s exploratory abdominal surgery as Buckingham Palace said he would travel from Windsor Castle to join the Queen in Scotland during August.

Maybe the duke will travel by train or he must finish his treatment before journey

Information about such events like private meeting with local members of the Welsh Corgi League two weeks ago don't fixed in CC, but people still wait such events and hope to seethe queen.

Of course - and she will attend the Highland Games which is never in the CC either.

All she will do officially in August is her regular meetings with the PM and hold a council meeting or two - based on past years.

I think she has a lot of free time while at Balmoral, but also has many private engagements and commitments. I am sure many of them have been going on for years, and her diary there is established six months in advance, like all the other times in her life.
