She always looks so happy and relaxed at horse shows. I hope that hat didn't frighten any of the horses.

I didn't know exactly were to put this so here:
From PrinceHarryFanatics, I just put the main points about what he said not the entire article which can be found on http://news.scotsman.com/uk.cfm?id=732762006

MOHAMED al-Fayed yesterday used a BBC radio interview to launch an extraordinary attack on the Duke of Edinburgh, branding him a racist who "grew up with Nazis" and who organised the murder of his son and Princess Diana because he could not tolerate the thought of their marriage. The Harrods owner also claimed a forthcoming official report into the 1997 Paris accident would confirm that Diana, 36 at the time of her death, was carrying Dodi Fayed's child. The outburst is the latest chapter in a nine-year battle waged by Mr Fayed against what he claims is a conspiracy organised by Britain's security services at the behest of the Royal Family. While Mr Fayed has consistently claimed his 42-year-old son Dodi and Diana were murdered, the Egyptian businessman used Radio 2's Jeremy Vine show as a vehicle for a vitriolic attack on Prince Philip. Referring to his German lineage, Mr Fayed said: "He [Philip] himself is a racist, it is well-known. He grew up with a Nazi, it is well-known." Prince Philip's four elder sisters all married German aristocracy in the 1930s. One was married to a lieutenant-colonel in the German reserves, while another was married to Prince Christoph of Hesse, a major in the Luftwaffe. The Harrods owner went on: "A guy who grew up with the Nazis, you think he will accept my son to marry Princess Diana, the mother of the future king, and she was carrying his child? All this will be black and white from the investigation in Paris." He dismissed Prince Philip as "nothing to do with the country, imported from Germany, half-Russian, grew up with the Hitler people, his aunt was married to Hitler's general". Mr Fayed's hatred of the Royal Family is well-documented, and claims of a plot to murder Diana and Dodi Fayed have formed part of the canon of conspiracy theories that have circulated since the crash in the Pont d'Alma tunnel in Paris on 31 August, 1997. Mr Fayed used the BBC interview to claim that Diana had spoken with foreboding of her future while on holiday at the millionaire's home in the south of France. He said: "Exactly she told me: 'If anything happens to me, Mohamed, be sure what is going to happen to me is going to be a devastating accident'

Queen Elizabeth II arrives at Westminster Abbey in London, 17 May 2006, to attend the The Order of the Bath Service. The Order of the Bath is comprised largely of people with distinguished military careers. The Order dates back to 1725 and uses Henry VII's Chapel in Westminster Abbey as its Chapel. Profimedia.

And that's what makes England great. Tradition, stability and ceremony.

Yes I wholeheartedly agree she was a very beautiful young woman and, although middle age wasn't kind to her, she now looks very elegant and dignified as an elderly woman. She has a great smile, doesn't she?

Hahaha, Mrs. Bucket! The one and only!
I think the Queen is telling her that she's not 'the lady of the house' at the moment. :p But she finally did it, she met the Queen.

I expect Onslow to pop in anytime now and mess things up for our dear Hyacinth. :p

lol. I would love to have heard what the Queen said to Patricia Routledge. Apparantly, when she got her CBE from the Queen, the Queen said, "We like Hyacinth very much".

So Patricia Routledge said. They asked her to report what the Queen said to her and she said, "Well, no I won't but she did say, 'We like Hyacinth very much' which is lovely of Her Majesty to say".
