A couple photos of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. I think the picture of the Duke in the conga line shows him looking like a dead ringer for William.

Hello to all! I'm a longtime lurker and first time poster. I created a video tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in commemoration of their 61st wedding anniversary and I wanted to share it with you. The pictures used are for the most part only taken within the last year. Hope you enjoy it!

This picture reminds me of the story told about the time that the Queen and friends were picnicing on the beach and some tourists came running up and asked if they had heard the rumor that the Queen was on the beach somewhere. The Queen quickly replied... "Yes, we saw her! She went that way!" Pointing down the beach. The tourist took off running in the direction that she pointed to yelling back "Thanks!"
Oh someday's Its good to be the Queen!!

I remember that story. Quite funny of the queen but imagine the poor tourist if he or she later found out that it had actually been the queen who'd pointed him in the wrong direction.

Anyway its a delightful photograph in that it captures the queen we dont normally see. And I have to say i quite like seeing the queen in trousers.

Indeedy. Funny the press missed out on that one. It's nice to see Marina and Philip having such a good time together though. Must have made Philip quite nostalgic for the past to see the pics.

I guess, imagine coming face to face with the most famous woman in the world and not realizing it's her.

Angela, how observant. Any guess what year, was he married then? Or was Princess Marina a friend of the Mountbattens.

I believe they are cousins

Philip and Marina are both members of the Greek royal family

I love another story they tell about when a lady spotted the Queen (not sure but I think it may have been at a WI meeting or something like that) and said to her majesty how much she looked like the queen, to which HM replied "How very reassuring"!!
