Does anyone know if the Duchess of Cornwall's milliner Philip Treacy has ever created anything for HM? I was curious after reading the above article.

I like this pictures. He seems to be a very well-mannered man with just the right amount of respect for the queen and affection for his girlfriend's grandmother, while the queen seem to like him as well. The Duke's face is priceless when he is kissed by his granddaughter...

Excellent pictures, Iceflower and sara1981. Her Majesty is a proud grandmother. And she likes Mike quite a lot, judging by the pictures.
More pictures of the reception from getty here.

I have three questions for you. The first one who can answer them all wins the Grand Prize. LOL

1. Does anyone know if The Queen is now at Sandringham?
2. Was it Zara Philips who was the «main» guest at the competition or was it Mike Tindall.
and finally
3. Does The Queen really have an Ipod?? That would be funny to know.

Thanks everyone for answering (In advance LOL)

Queen Elizabeth II lays a few small mirror tiles around the head of baby Jesus on a nativity collage made by schoolchildren at Southwark Cathedral on December 7, 2006 in London, England. The children and their artwork feature in this year's Christmas broadcast from Her Majesty. The Queen's Christmas speech this year highlights how all religions stress the need to nurture and guide the young. In her December 25 message, the monarch will speak about the importance of the relationship between the generations. She will say: "The wisdom and experience of the great religions point to the need to nurture and guide the young, and to encourage respect for the elderly."

Troops 'chuffed' by Queen's message

British troops in Iraq were "really chuffed" to receive the Queen's supportive Christmas message and said it was nice to be remembered.

Army spokesman Captain Tane Dunlop said the troops on the ground were delighted to receive the message.
"I think everyone is really chuffed. Obviously the Queen is constitutionally head of state and head of the Armed Forces, and British forces have the highest respect for the Queen. "It is really nice that she is thinking of us during the festive season, particularly those of us out on operation."

Queen Elizabeth II smiles after filming this year's Christmas broadcast issued on December 24, 2006 at Southwark Cathedral, south London, England. The Queen's Christmas speech this year is available as a podcast for the first time in the history of the annual message. The Queen will highlight in her 2006 message how all religions stress the need to nurture and guide the young.

Her Majesty's speech was a pretty good one IMO. It wasn't a disaster like that awful one two years ago and although it pandered slightly to the PC brigade, it's always a highlight to hear the message.

Queen Elizabeth May Withdraw Royal Warrant From Burberry

Queen Elizabeth may withdraw her Royal Warrant from fashion label Burberry. The royal's decision was made after joining a campaign to stop the closure of one of its factories in Wales.
The queen has joined son Prince Charles in expressing her concern about the planned closure, which will result in the loss of 300 jobs.

Quite right, I certainly won't be buying anything from them, if they close the welsh factory. They may make some rather smart riding coats, but I'm sure drizabone will be able to supply something nice to tide me over!
