Talking The Queen is starting a blog

I saw on FOX News that Queen Elizabeth is starting a blog so she can get in touch with her people. I know the Queen is with the times, but I didn't know she is that with the times!

Hmmmm. Not sure I believe that. What's she going to write?

Monday.

Had a chat with Anne on the phone, she says her bunion's killing her and could I pick her up some Dr Scholl insoles in Morrisons. Watched a bit of telly with Phil but we had an argument over 'Ready, Steady, Cook' and he went off to shoot something. Must remember to pick up some Mr Sheen for the tiara.

Tuesday.

Did a bit of waving in a hat. Pie and Mash for dinner.

Wednesday.

Edward sat us down tonight and told us he had something to tell the family but we had to cut him short 'cos Corrie was on. Still, he seemed happy with the Boyzone album we got him at Virgin Megastores. I didn't go in, I popped into Littlewoods for a cup of tea and a bun and Camilla bought Boyzone and a copy of "Dr Dray" for William. Had a bath, did the ironing and went to bed.

Thursday.

Did a bit more waving and then Gordon popped round for an hour. Apparantly he's inviting the King of Sweden over which'll be nice 'cos he owes me a fiver and Silvia can bring back that coat she borrowed last time she was here. I told her to give it to one of the kids at a foreign do but as yet, I haven't seen it. Phil said to buy a new one at the market on Saturday but it's the principle. "How Clean is Your House?" then bed.

Friday

Charles and Camilla came round in the morning but had to go early 'cos they were unveiling something or other and then Edward came over in the afternoon saying he really did need to tell us something but what with Rolf Harris pestering me for another picture I didn't have time to listen. Anne popped over though and kept him amused - he wants to borrow her wedding dress for a party. Must be fancy dress.

Saturday.

Went to the market. Got a new coat. Turns out Silvia lent it to Queen Margrethe and it's got burn holes in it. Me and Phil had that new steak and kidney pie from Marksies. Only 3 minutes in the microwave and you wouldn't know. We were only home five minutes and the bulb in the ballroom went so we had to get the ladder. Phil was swearing like a trooper but we got it done and had a game of twister with Beatrice and Eugenie. Edward phoned and said he'd really actually quite like to tell me something but what with all this hat choosing I'm snowed under. Alexandra's coming over tomorrow to do me hair so that'll be nice. Bed at 10.

Sunday.

Church this morning. Vicar pissed again. Oh well, I gave him a fiver so that's the pools sorted for the week. Alexandra came over and gave me hair a colour and did the home perm so I'll be ready for tomorrow. Phoned Edward but he said he couldnt chat 'cos he was off to a Shirley Bassey concert. He does like his music that boy. Sophie came round in the afternoon so I missed 'Songs of Praise' but little Louise had a whale of a time with that new Fisher Price Army Barracks we bought her. Had lamb for dinner and stone me, I'd forgotten to buy mint sauce. Phil went mad. Beatrix phoned - she's just bought a George Foreman grill and she's not sure if you can do fish fingers on it. I told her I'd ask Zara to pop over in the week and show her how to do it. Watched a programme about me on Channel 4 and went to bed.

I have a hard time imagining what she'd write about. She's not meant to have a political opinion, so she couldn't write about that… She most likely wouldn't share family secrets with the general public… and even the family history would likely be kept under wraps.

A blog about horses? Or corgis?

I think having a blog would seem strange for someone who has made a " lifelong custom" of not being interviewed and "prefers to be observed rather than questioned" - What Does the Queen Do? - TIME

Philip shoots down those heart rumours

Link to article

From the article
Quote:
Prince Philip showed he felt fighting fit yesterday by enjoying his favourite winter hobby - shooting game birds.
The 86-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was spotted driving around in his Land Rover, walking unaided and taking pot shots at birds flying overhead on the 20,000-acre Royal estate at Sandringham, Norfolk.

And, P.S., Sam, your blog parody was brilliant!!

Yes, that was brilliant, Sam! But I bet if the Royal Household opens up a blog it will be something very official. Maybe the Royal Collection will do something like this about updates in the exhibitions and stuff. Who knows? I can see something like this happening. The royal site has a podcast, why not a blog? The Prince of Wales may do something like it too: he has a video podcast which I subscribe to but it's not updated much, so it's a bit annoying. But when it's updated it's awesome.

I read this and thought it was so sweet and appropriate too.
The Queen always looks great and is an inspiration for how to dress your age and still be glamorous.

I could not agree more with your last sentence, daisygoogles

Pics from the weekend, the Queen enjoying an autumn ride:

It is so nice to see her ride and get exercise. She really is a country woman at heart!

Those horses are so amazing. The grey-white horses are my favorite kind but that black beauty is so gorgeous too, and they are so stocky and sweet, with their wonderfully brushed tails.
