If you look down the page, you can watch a teaser of "The Queen" movie. It's just showed in Venice. If the link has gone, search for "Queen Movie Venice" and it should come up. From the 60 sec clip of the film, Helen Mirren appears to have caught the Queen perfectly.

A better link. The video clip from the Queen can be found in the right hand corner. Well worth a watch.
Thank you for providing the link but BBC tells me that the video is for "UK viewers only" - okay, they surely can see that my IP adress is from Germany, but still I think it's a strange occurence in he World Wide Web....

That's very odd indeed. I wonder if there's anyway of getting around it.

Does anyone know where I can get a on-line copy of the Thanksgiving Service for The Queen's Birthday at St. George Chapel in April 2006

I doubt you'd get one online but if you write to the Dean of Windsor he might be able to send you one.

Thanks so much for posting those lovely photos, BeatrixFan. Everyone is so obviously comfortable and happy and having a great time. I feel lighter and happier just looking at the pics.

In reference to the picture iceflower posted, I don't think I have ever seen the Queen crossing her legs while sitting in a chair in public.......then again, I haven't seen her sitting much. ^_^

I have seen pictures of her with her legs crossed, and i believe there is footage in the documentary Elizabeth R where she is sitting watching tv with her legs cross----i had heard that it was really against protocol for a royal lady to sit like that---but if the queen does it from time to time it mustnt be I suppose.

Princess Anne always crosses her legs - and very fine legs they are too but I've never seen the Queen cross her legs when sitting at an official function. Maybe it's because she feels so relaxed at Braemar that she can just relax.

Usually it's a few Ladies in Waiting and other members of the Court such as the Lord Chamberlain etc.

Ugandan state house ready to host Queen Elizabeth II by middle 2007

The construction of Uganda's state house in the southern city of Entebbe will be completed by the middle of next year and Britain's Queen Elizabeth II will likely take it as residency during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) here in late 2007, a Ugandan official said on Wednesday.

Opportunity knocked, but was not let in

WHEN the Queen awoke one recent Sunday in her Balmoral bedroom, she had reason to be optimistic. On another Sunday nine years ago, she learnt her former daughter-in-law was dead. It seemed that week as if the British monarchy could follow Princess Diana to the grave.

Prince tells racers to drive carefully

Prince Philip inspected a fleet of classic cars Thursday before they sped off on a London-to-Monte Carlo rally -- and even offered their drivers a handy tip.

Proud tots' letter from The Queen

PEOPLE might be surprised to know that some of the most passionate Royalists in the city enjoy colouring with crayons and making papier maché.
