Duchess of Kent look quite ill. She has the apperance of someone with dementia or Alzheimer. I hope she is surrounded by attentive and loving family members and if needed also caregivers. I also hope I am wrong and she will look healthy next time we see her.

It does seem that Princess Anne has adapted an old friend;





Both pics from Corbis. The first from 1980, the second from 2006. The hat seems to be exactly the same but the coat is different I think.

Celebrations for Queen Elizabeth Conclude

LONDON - Surrounded by family, friends and hundred of guests, Queen Elizabeth II attended a service of thanksgiving at Windsor Castle on Sunday at the end of five days of festivities marking her 80th birthday.
The queen, who has reigned for 54 years, attended the service with her 84-year-old husband Prince Philip, their three sons, their daughter and their grandchildren. Also among the 700 guests were former prime ministers Margaret Thatcher and John Major, Prince Charles' sons, William and Harry, and numerous other royals.
The Dean of Windsor, the Right Rev. David Conner, praised the queen for "calmness, serenity and stillness."
"Your Majesty, not so much through word as by unselfconscious good example, you encourage us, you give us heart," he said, telling the queen that she helped Britons "understand that happiness, fulfillment and humanity can be gleaned from self-forgetfulness."
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060423/..._queen_s80th_1

Queen draws strength from her family and her faith

After the secular celebrations, the Queen yesterday joined family and friends for a reflective and deeply Christian service of thanksgiving to mark her 80th birthday.
It was an occasion that brought together almost all of her extended family, along with those who have served her as sovereign, at St George's Chapel within the precincts of Windsor Castle.
The Queen is joined by members of the Royal Family outside St George's Chapel [enlargement]
Yesterday was about honouring the head of the Church of England, and a Queen who, said the Dean of Windsor, the Rt Rev David Conner, held the Christian faith as a "very bedrock of her life".

Queen Elizabeth knights her sons

Queen Elizabeth II knighted her two youngest sons during a church ceremony on Sunday, part of ongoing celebrations to mark her 80th birthday.
With their newly awarded knighthoods, Princes Andrew, 46, and Edward, 42, join the rest of the immediate royal family in holding Order of the British Empire titles.

Hundreds hail 'Elizabeth our Queen'

THE Queen's enduring "calmness, serenity and stillness" were praised yesterday in a thanksgiving service held at Windsor to mark her 80th birthday.
More than 700 guests and nearly 40 members of the Royal Family listened attentively to traditional blessings, lessons and prayers led by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Rev David Conner, in St George's Chapel.

Good grief! That first photo in post 329 is just downright scary. What on earth is wrong with the Duchess? She doesn't look sane. I mean, it's an awful thing to say, but she just doesn't.

It saddens me so much to see the Duchess of Kent like this. I thought she found happiness but I guess she is still suffering. Princess Micheal however looked positively divine IMO. Very elegant and lovely. Queen lookes great. Eugenie really is beautiful and I loved her look at Kew Palace.

The Princess Royal stands out among all the other women with her very lovely tiny hat among wide brimmed hats. I am sure her wearing something different was not a coincidence. She is a smart woman.

Thanks for the photos. The Queen looks lovely. And both Beatrice and Eugenie look pretty and well turned out. The whole family does!
