I alsways think she looks great in anything in the green-blue-purple color range. It really brings out the blue of her eyes.

I love her in blues -- any shade.... that Diana memorial ensemble, the royal blue, was fab, but the lighter blue such as in Virginia in May was great as well.

Today The Queen held an Investiture at Buckingham Palace, and I presume she had her weekly PM meeting as well. Among the recipients of distinctions:

Dr. David Starkey (CBE)
Jim Leishman (MBE)
Christiane Amanpour (CBE) ---> Picture
Desmond Pawson (MBE)
Clasford Stirling (MBE)
Elizabeth Aiken (MBE) ---> Picture

TWO senior royals are set to drop in on the North East just days after Prince William thrilled the crowds with his footballing skills.
The Duke of Edinburgh and the Princess Royal are making visits to two very different projects in the region this Thursday.

David Starkey isn't a Sir (though he'd dearly love to be I'm sure), he's a Dr. Let's not massage egos anymore than the Queen has today!

There is a lot to be said for making someone feel proud and good about themselves. I'm sure even you, Sam, would be gloating from here to the moon if you was invited to the Palace to receive an MBE from HM.
You'd be tickled pink, you know it.

Prince Philip's health fears as heart condition is revealed

Prince Philip has had a secret heart condition for 15 years, it has been revealed.
The Duke of Edinburgh, 86, suffered a bout of ill-health recently which caused concern among the royal family, according to a report in today's Evening Standard. He recovered and has since insisted on carrying out a full programme of engagements, refusing to curtail his busy schedule

Queen Elizabeth's comedy role

Queen Elizabeth has been offered a part in hit comedy sketch show 'Little Britain'.
Comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams - who co-write the popular BBC One show watched by close to 10 million viewers - are desperate for the monarch to play the grandmother of one of their most popular

It sounds like the heart condition is under careful monitoring, and that is a good sign. Plus he no doubt has the best doctors. As long as he takes his meds and eats a healthy diet, gets plenty of rest, he could be be just fine. Sometimes the best thing one can do is to stay active. I know there are some circumstances where it's not enough or where activity is actually counter-productive, but in his case, I bet it's one of the best things he can do for himself. He gets out and about, getting fresh air and exercising his legs and joints, stimulating his mind, and he has lots of minders watching out for him in case of emergency.

I am disgusted by one of the comments in that article: someone from thailand, forgot the name, wrote "he should feel lucky, as he's never worked a day in his life." That's a horrible thing to say.

Given Prince Philip's activity level over the last 15 years, I doubt that it is much to worry about. He's seemingly healthier than many other men his age, too.

Given that his father died of heart failure around the age of 62 (and his mother also experienced heart trouble I believe although she lived to the age of 84), it wouldn't be surprising for him to have these problems. However, I'm always leery of the total accuracy of reports based on "unnamed palace officials". Nevertheless, true or not, it would be a great loss not to have him around. He's unquestionably the head of the family and I doubt that there is any member of it who is not anxious to earn his approbation.
