We have a hitherto-unknown royal insider, from an entirely unexpected source: "royals commentator Richard Mineards, columnist for the Santa Barbara News-Press..."

I'm puzzled why Prince Philip has not been given the title before now, if it is true.

I don't think there are any pictures avalable of the parade, GillW.

However this month's Focus at the official website of the British Monrachy looks at Royal connections to the Scouting and Guiding movements.
Hope it helps.

Thank you for the link Her_Majesty.

This portrait of a serene Elizabeth II is worth preserving in the threads:

That portrait has to be one of my favourites of Her Majesty in recent years.
Thank you for posting it Her_Majesty.

the new portrait of her majesty is simply gorgeous. the lighting and the mood that is conveyed is stunning and i've been a great fan of leibovitz's work in the past, but this particular portrait is one of her best in recent times. fabulous!

I love the new portrait. It's just beautiful. Much better than Rolf's cartoon attempt.

I love the new portrait too! She looks so regal! But, no surprise there, she always is! I'm glad to see she is wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara! Lovely

I've always loved Annie's work throughout the years, but this portrait of Her Majesty simply outshines them all!

I adore this shot.

I don't know if this current event has made it to the RF, but just in case it hasn't, here is an article about the recent picture of the Queen to coincide with the Royal visit to the US. I personally like the photo myself, because it speaks volumes to me in different sorts of way. There is a sense of calmness, yet apprehension as the Queen sits looking out the door with the countryside in the background.


Critics not amused by queen photo

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- An American photographer famed for showing celebrities naked or bathing in asses' milk chose a more traditional pose for Britain's Queen Elizabeth, but Annie Leibovitz's new work sharply divided critics on Wednesday.
John Lennon appeared naked and Clint Eastwood was bound with ropes, but Leibovitz opted to have her subject in full evening dress for an official portrait marking the queen's visit to the United States.
Washington Post culture critic Henry Allen was not amused, complaining that the portrait of the monarch sitting in the White Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace had "all the personality of a marble bust of George Washington." (Larger view of photo)

40,000 Light Bulbs in Her Home, can Queen Elizabeth Can Alter Her Carbon Footprint?

Can the Queen Go Green?


This week, the queen of England will be visiting the United States, not a rare occurrence for her majesty, who loves to travel.
During her 55 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth has visited 129 countries. She has traveled the length and breadth of the earth, making her perhaps the best-known, best-loved and most-informed British sovereign of all time.
But according to environmental activists, the queen's many expeditions have come at a dreadful cost to the planet. They see aviation as a prime cause of global warming.

thanks Warren, I like the one where she sits in a red chair. The similarity with Annie's picture is also that it is still daylight but not dark enough to light the lamps. Someone said that it looks stormy outside because of the fighting in Irak by the US and the UK.
