That's why I look forward to checking out the Queen's 80th birthday website more often to check if there are any new pictures. :)

Thanks to purple_platinum for giving us this sneak peek at the website. I hope everybody has a chance to look at all the amazing photos in the actual website, its truly a work of art and very fitting for Her Majesty's birthday.

For those of you who didn't see the website yet, go check it out:

http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page4817.asp

from royal.gov.uk
I just checked things out a bit, to see if there were any changes in the 90s or 2000s photo albums, which is where the photos were that were changed right after the site went live. For those living in Britain or with access to British papers, was there a "row" over no photo of Camilla with the queen? I'm just curious since the 1st time I looked at the 2000s photos there wasn't a picture and then later there was. Did it make the papers?

As far as i know like the previous Monarchs, The Queen also has two birthdays, one is her actual birthday, and the other one is the Sovereign's Birthday which often helds on a certain second Saturday in June when the weather is good.
Thanks for this thread, purple_platinum, i'm sure how wonderful it will be with lots and lots of pics of Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with her coming 80th birthday wish all the best wishes for her and her family.:)__________________

yes it is the weather i think, because in april it often rains but in june she can be at trooping the coulor standing in the sun

Oh, good; maybe I'll order one. Last time I got a brochure from the Royal Mint, the birthday crown was only available as part of a set of 17 crowns from different countries, and I wasn't about to buy all of them just to get one of the British ones.

I think that this coin, with those trumpets and the phrase "Vivat Regina", would be more suitable for a jubilee rather than for a birthday, however I'm going to buy it.

I can't remember which country it was from, but it was part of the Golden Jubilee collection issued by the BRM.

I would like to enquire if we know if any Euro-Royals will be attending the service in St Paul's to mark Her Majesty's Birthday in June.

Article from HELLO

Relaxed but regal and with a warm twinkle in her eye, the Queen shows she still has plenty of zest for life in a portrait released to mark her 80th birthday celebrations.................
http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...ueenportraits/

#1: The picture is one of a series of intimate photographs, which will go on public display at Windsor Castle from today. In the portrait the Queen looks "relaxed but at the same time quite energised," comments royal curator Sophie Gordon

A combination photograph of a collection of stamps, due to be issued by the Royal Mail to celebrate the 80th birthday of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, is seen in this handout released by the Royal Mail on April 10, 2006. The pictures of the Queen, which have been chosen from thousands of archive photographs, are a collection of informal photographic portraits taken throughout her life. The stamps will be issued on April 18, three days before the Queen's 80th birthday
