Visiting an old jail? How thrilling can that be?
Bet Philip came up with some good comments for that one.
What is Prince Philip smelling, and why?
If you can watch the show on HBO, you'll probably fall in love with it. I think it's a brilliant series and I loved (a bit jealous) that The Queen & Prince Philip got a chance to meet the cast and check out the Iron Throne.

Thanks. Makes sense then.
But still hideous in my opinion. Glad her Majesty doesn't have to sit on a throne like that!

HM's stamina is truly astonishing. Straight from a busy 3 days in NI and she just keeps on going. She'll have earned her holiday when it comes in a month's time.

The DOE's stamina is pretty amazing too - this event was on the evening after he had returned from a busy 3 days in Northern Ireland, having had appearances there earlier in the day!

Girl gets response from Queen Elizabeth II after letter about fashion

Laura, age 8, wrote after she discovered that The Queen exists out of fairy tales.

Her Majesty thanked the suggestions made by the girl from São João da Boa Vista, São Paulo.
