Kate Bush is/was a singer. Look up her song 'Wuthering Heights' or 'Climbing up that hill'. They are great songs, though you will either love or hate the first one.
I agree with you about her clothing.

What I find interesting is the holding of investitures at Windsor.

I think using Windsor for events will become more frequent, and it cuts down the travelling time for HMQ. She loves Windsor, and I've gained the impression that its more comfortable than BP.

Anyway, if she intends to spend some money fixing BP (so its more habitable for future Monarchs and their children) she will probably work out of Windsor in order to avoid the builders!

Being at Windsor Castle was the first thing I noticed too and actually had to check and remind myself of what day of the week it was. as usually mid week had the Queen at BP.

I think too that other than Balmoral in Scotland, Windsor is where she is most comfortable.

I thought the same about Windsor but then I remembered that it's not all nag long after Easter (schools are still on easter holidays)which HM traditionally spends at Windsor celebrating Easter then hosting some dine and sleep nights which we know she has been doing (inviting Daniel Craig). But I do think she will spend more and more time at windsor as the years go on.

The 6 maids of honour who flanked the Queen at her Coronation in 1953 have held a reunion.

The Queen asked, 'Ready girls?': The Coronation maids of honour - who claim to be the Spice Girls of their time - reunite 60 years on to share their memories of the day:

Interesting story about the maid of honours but that is a repeat from last year.

And 10/11 years ago when they ran the same story in both the Golden Jubilee year itself and the Jubilee of the Coronation.

It repeats all the time..
And this one thing I have to agree with DM posters..
The column "What has she done so far"..was very unimpressive. They should have worded it some other way. They made it sound (indeed truly) as if there was nothing they have accomplished in life other than marry (and then some divorce) and have kids..

Ugh, there are so many spelling mistakes and errors in that DM piece. They really are beyond parody at this stage.

They miss the point. These are daughters of the aristocracy in the early 1950's. Women of that class did not go out to work, and rarely went on to university. They married well and within their circle; had children; supported their husbands and did good works.

A good example is Anne, Duchess of Norfolk who died recently (see appropriate thread). She did all that was expected and then went to found a Hospice charity. They built up the WI; conserved the local environment as well as local fruit and worked to help their local community.

It is from this work that many of the major charities in the UK started.

It may not be work as the DM understand it, but it was. And they didn't
get paid.

It is precisely the life that HMQ would have lived if her uncle had remained King.

HM certainly enjoyed her success at Newbury today. Nice to see also that it was a female jockey, Hayley Turner, who won in the Queen's colours.

Her Majesty looked as if she had a wonderful time. It's great that her horse won, just in time for her birthday .
