This is the scene which has greeted foreign monarchs, presidents and prime ministers - the Buckingham Palace ballroom prepared for a state banquet.

From Tuesday, it will not be by invitation only as it becomes the latest part of the palace opened to the public for two months over the summer

Love the smile, love that hat but that dress has got to be re-interred in the deepest closet from whence it came.

Actually, the Queen Mother's clothes were pretty predictable colours, too...she never went too long without wearing another lavender or light blue.

I think the Queen always looks beautiful and elegant. She has lovely thick white hair that always looks immaculate...she looks the part of a Queen. And you can tell by the way the people who meet her look at her, that there's a lot of admiration and respect for her--and I think that's only going to grow as she gets older.

Illegal Russian worker poured tea for Queen

An illegal Russian worker served as a Royal footman for almost two years, even though he had no proper work permit.

Anyone found any local coverage of HM officially arriving at Balmoral this year please? I can't find anything myself...Sometimes we get a picture or two of her being greeted as she moves in for the season....

I don't think so Gill. I have been looking for that too, but unfortunately there are nothing coming up at all. And according to one of the Message Board, HM has already moved up like about a week or so already.

I hope he's okay. HM and his life is stressful enough, IMO they really don't need this, though I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Buckingham Palace said today that it would be complaining to the press watchdog over a report that claimed the Duke of Edinburgh had been diagnosed with prostate cancer...........Buckingham Palace today broke its policy of refusing to comment on the Royal Family's health matters to release a statement denying that he had been diagnosed with the condition.

And here is the denial -

"The Duke of Edinburgh has authorised us to confirm that the claim made by the Evening Standard that he has received a 'diagnosis of prostate cancer' is untrue," the statement said

I know HM was already staying on the estate, although not in the Castle, when I was there on 27th July, but we were told that she would move into the "big house" on Friday 1st August, with the "usual ceremonies". But maybe the local press just didn't bother to cover it. Shame , as we get a few nice pictures normally. Thanks for looking....

Is the Evening Standard considered a reputable paper? They could be in serious trouble now that the Palace has issued a denial.

I do hope the Prince isn't ill. HM needs him.
