Looks like a rather well fed exemplar or is it only long hair making the body look so huge and the feet so tiny?

I think Queen Elizabeth II looks the best good in pastels and white clothes.

Yes, I agree. She also looks nice in heathered tones, her pretty tweeds and so on. I think that the worst colour I've seen her in was the burnt orange that she wore at the Millenium Dome the night of December 31, 1999, to January 1, 2000.

Reading these posts and the links I find myself hoping that somehow the Queen and the D of E will somehow find a way to go on forever; I know that's not realistic, of course. It makes me wonder how much the RF will change when they are no longer here.

I know what you mean, and I try not to think about it too much. I will have a sad day whenever the Duke or the Queen dies, whichever goes first.

Extra Funding is denied Queen Elizabeth for BP and Windsor Castle until 2011.

Queen Elizabeth does not have travel plans to visit foreign country for at least six months.

I think in additon to the elections, there may be the added concern about the costs of a state visit that BP must be cognizant of.

Or it could be the Queen and Prince Philip feel that at their age they don't want to do too many visits abroad.....

I was thinking about one poster from Australia who was mentioned that the Queen hadn't been there lately. I thought, "That's an awfully long trip for a lady of 82 years."
