Queen tells Kristin Scott Thomas: Playing me will be quite a challenge - Telegraph

Quote:
Speaking afterwards, Dame Kristin disclosed the Queen had politely asked her what she was doing next, before remarking it would be "quite a challenge" to capture her on stage.

Should we celebrate when the Queen becomes our longest reigning monarch? - Telegraph
Quote:
Don’t expect a commemorative stamp. Forget gilded carriages, rows of painted faces along the Mall, cardboard periscopes in red, white and blue. There will be no Red Arrows fly-past, nor any salute of guns in Hyde Park or at the Tower of London; no concert or picnic or fireworks display to disturb the peace of Buckingham Palace gardens. Instead, according to royal aides, Wednesday September 9 2015 will be 'business as usual’. As far as the Palace is concerned, this is not a day for celebration.

Yet this is not a “usual” day. September 9 represents an extraordinary milestone in our island story. It is the day on which Elizabeth II becomes the longest-reigning monarch in British history, the day on which she breaks the record held for more than a century by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. September 9 is the day that casts in a new light the National Anthem’s prayer about a Queen who is “long to reign over us”.

It was interesting to learn that when Queen Victoria had become the longest reigning English monarch, printed handkerchiefs to china plates bore the legend "the longest reign in history".
Has it been announced that any newspaper and magazine reporters will go to Buckingham Palace before Queen Elizabeth II goes to Balmoral and take photographs of her?

Who will make the statue of Elizabeth II?
Will the statue portray Elizabeth as a young monarch, a middle-aged sovereign, or an older Queen?

It is indeed! I imagine that Dame Maggie will feel very much at home having dinner at the Palace - no worries over which knife and fork to use!

The Queen has spent a second day enjoying the spring sunshine in Windsor Great Park this week.
Her Majesty, who is approaching her 89th birthday, was spotted riding her faithful black Fell pony, Carltonlima Emma, as she was joined by Lord Vestey and her Head Groom Terry Pendry in the beautiful park close to her Windsor Castle home on Monday.
She was well prepared for any spring showers in a lightweight waterproof, and, as is her wont, eschewed a helmet in favour of one of her silk scarves.

I've heard Hermes has a new kevlar lined scarf. It comes tied and formed and you just slip it on over one's hairstyle. It's water resistant as well!

The Queen celebrates her 89th birthday - BBC News

Queen spends 89th birthday celebrating with Royal family at Windsor Castle - Telegraph

Quote:
The Queen will spend her 89th birthday on Tuesday celebrating quietly with members of the Royal family at Windsor Castle as she takes a rare week off from official engagements.

Her Majesty will still go through her daily quota of government red boxes, as she does every day except Christmas Day, but will otherwise be able to relax with the Duke of Edinburgh as she enters her 90th year.

The Prince of Wales, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex have also kept their diaries free, suggesting they may join her for a birthday celebration at some point during the day.

She could even receive a visit from her great-grandson, Prince George, if the Duchess of Cambridge is feeling well enough to make the trip, or of the Duke of Cambridge has a day off from his air ambulance pilot training.

Gun salutes have been fired to mark the Queen's 89th birthday. The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery - in full dress uniform - rode their horses past Buckingham Palace in the sunshine en route to Hyde Park to stage a 41-gun royal salute using six First World War-era 13-pounder Field Guns at midday-

Perhaps we will see him wearing it in a few hours at the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. I hope so, it would be fitting.
