It's good to see Her Majesty up and about. I hope she is feeling better, but I still wonder is she will be able to perform the Opening of Parliament.

I agree but I can tell she is holding herself very stiff & still, a sure sign she is definitely experiencing pain

I'm glad you liked it! It really made me smile and I think it showed the great relationship the Queen had with her mother.

Here are some pics from yesterday:

LONDON - NOVEMBER 09: Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh speaks to veterans during the opening of the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on November 9, 2006 in London, England. The Armistice Day service was held to remember the servicemen and women who died fighting for Britain in war. People across the country and the Commonwealth also observed a two-minute silence to remember them. (Photos by Scott Barbour/Getty Images)

Nice pics. Thanks, Avalon.

Her Majesty is wearing a silver fern brooch - nice touch! Do any of the Kiwis on the list know the story of that brooch?

On the occasion of the Queen's coronation, The Queen was presented with a diamond fern brooch by the women of Auckland on her visit to New Zealand. That is all I know :)

Where did the rumour come from in the first place? I've never heard it before.

Why do people start such rumours!! But it does seems as though the Queen is still in a great deal of pain. I noticed that during the New Zealand war tribute, her majesty seemed to be walking and even talking rather slowly, but that could do with her back medication.

What I dont understand is, this wasn't a rumour. There hadn't been any mention of it. So why are the Royalist reporting it? Are they starting a rumour just to have it denied so they can report a rumour being denied? Truly baffling.

Considering how long this alleged strained muscle has been a problem, it's not surprising that this sort of rumour would surface. The only surprise is that it's taken this long. I suppose we'll have to wait for developments - the first being whether the Queen misses the Opening of Parliament this week.

According to the article in The Royalist, the rumour started in The Times. There was a time when that would have been significant, but The Times these days is just one of the Murdoch rags.
