Thank you for the pictures, Iceflower.

Somehow the queen looks different during this visit - really interested in the work of her grandson, granny-like, not so politely interested as she appears most of the time during public engagements. But then: which grandmother would not love to find out more about her grandson's chosen profession? Does she visit his farmhouse as well, where he will live with Catherine after the wedding?

It would be so like William to do something like that too. I imagine though it wouldn't have been done during the official tour. Not many people though get to kiss HM when greeting her. I bet William was very proud to show off his helicopter and crew and from the look in the pics on HM's face, she seems rightly proud of her grandson too. Good day all the way around I think.

Maybe he placed a woopy cushion on her chair when they had lunch or even worse told her Catherine was expecting.

OR... it could have been the other way around with HM pulling a good one on William!

I'm a little disappointed with the undignified way HM was allowed to exit the car. That is something I would do, but I'm not royal. Someone should have held her hand as she exited the SUV.

I so agree! I kept thinking about her poor knees-but when her skirt slipped up abover her knees----all I could think was Wow, what a pair of gams the old girl has.

Really lovely family shots. Love the Kiss followed by the neckbow. But really, someone should have been there to hand Her Majesty out of the Range Rover although judging by the way she got out she's obviously done it before, not in a howling gale however!

I never noticed how much Prince William looked like his grandpa, til I saw that picture of the 2 of them laughing together.

It's the Mountbatten genes, I think.

To me William is clearly a Spencer, as far as looks are concerned. The recent photos are lovely, thanks for sharing!
