There doesn't appear to be a thread with photos of QEII, if so I've missed it.

Anyway, you may have seen this pic, but I think it's a pretty stylish picture of the commander-in-chief: https://app.box.com/s/daib9o3wlrehac6qpjlr
(Allow the file a few seconds to load).

Queen Elizabeth II has opened 15 bridges in the United Kingdom during her reign.

I don't know if this is the right thread but mystery and royalty lovers should love a series of three books by Canadian writer C. C. Benison - Death at Buckingham Palace, Death at Sandringham, and Death at Windsor Castle - featuring housemaid Jane Bee and co-sleuth - Her Majesty! They're quite fun and have peeks into the workings of the royal residences.

Thanks for the information on the books. They look like something I would enjoy reading and after checking, I've found them for dirt cheap at abesbooks.com. Will definitely order them.

They are very enjoyable. She did plan another one to two but didn't go ahead because of Diana's death I believe.

I wondered why there were no more in this series.

PS: for mystery lovers there's a website called "Stop You're Killing Me" with a listing of just about every mystery and author ever published. Great site.

The above link contains photos of young Princess Elizabeth participating in various plays. Proceeds were given to charity.
