Most of us don't give much thought to the health risks of long flights, specifically deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can be fatal. The risk is increased in the elderly. The queen is wise to minimize or avoid long flights at her advanced age.

Also I think the time zone differences and jet lag would create havoc in an elderly person more severely than in a younger person.

I love the Commonwealth Games, and I was thinking of trying to go to them next year in Glasgow.

Not sure where to do this but The Queen's Baton Relay is live on BBC1 at the minute. Can't believe I was there this weekend!

@BritishMonarchy: The baton contains a message from The Queen which was signed by Her Majesty at Balmoral Castle this summer: http://t.co/U0uG42nl16

The Queen is so cute, I love her wee smile. :)

Sir Chris Hoy in a kilt was extra amazing. One thing though, I do not like Sophie Raworth. Not sure why, but she does get on my nerves. Totally unrelated and off topic!

When are the games? Next summer?

Ths would be true if QE and DoE were strapped in during a commercial flight. Instead they have the luxury of being able to get up, walk around, lie down in a real bed and sleep thru the night. Hardly any risk of DVT in that case.

What plane do you think she would have been flying? We dont have the equivalent of a Presidential plane

I believe British Airways has a small suite that can be installed when its larger planes are chartered for VIP use. Several rows of seats are removed, and there's a bed on each side with a small living/office area between the aisles.

I'm sure what ever the exact layout every plane she flies on is fitted out more spaciously than what you or I would fly on. But that doesn't necessarily make it a good idea for ppl nearly at 90.

Actually, no. I've always understood that when the Queen flies it's just regular first class - with no others around except her entourage. Ditto for the UK PM and most all other world leaders except the US president.
