I think the blonde hair looked lovely on all on the young Royals - they looked angelic!
Remember Phillip's Greek family, were Danish and German. The Greek Royal family had no Greek blood.

Thank you Lumutqueen. What an absolutely wonderful article. I do love all the photographs they selected to represent all the different moments in her life.

My favorite moment (besides the mental image of Her Majesty hurling shoes and sports equipment at her husband) was:

If I were the hostess I would have said, " I thought you looked familiar." Or " I thought I recognized you Ma'am".
Mind you, couldn't do it with a straight face!

Thanks for the article Lumutqueen. It's always interesting to read about insights to the Queen's life, even though it is the Daily Mail, of which I am not a great believer in. I would love to see the Queen off duty more often, but I think she likes it that way; the less we know of her private life, the better.

This is my favorite part:

And it is one of the reasons why this long, strong and very happy marriage has sailed through its diamond anniversary and is heading for platinum.

‘There are some people who don’t need many friends,’ says a close friend of the family. ‘And those two, they’re just a real love story —taking tea together every day, talking about everything. He might take out a letter and read it to her, or crack a joke. They just adore each other.’

I think that William (as a future Monarch) would always have his calls answered.

Many successful marriages are based on the couple spending most of its time together, preferring each other to friends. It's certainly a tradition in my family - especially on my mom's side.

I think the Queen and her Prince always look very happy together.

She may be Queen of the united kingdom and the commonwealth realms but to her husband the duke of Edinburgh she Is lillibet, to her children she is mom and Queen and to her grandchildren she is granny:)

Hahahahaha! While reading that, I began to have a craving for a bacon sandwich. Will "turkey breakfast strips" do, I wonder? That's all that I have in the freezer.
