Yes, I agree on both counts. Prince Philip is looking frail lately, at least in still photos. I haven't seen any video of him lately.

Thank you, Warren. That was quite solemn and moving. That was a new experience for me, seeing the London ceremony in video. The Duke still walks energetically, which is good to know.

Maybe there are some medical concern we do not know. The Queen is professional enough to look great no matter what, but a trip to Australia might still be too much for her and / or her husband.

The Duke's father, Prince Andrew of Greece, died at age 62 of heart failure. His mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, died at 84.

Queen Elizabeth II reins in extravagance as credit crunch grips - Yahoo! News

Always concerned about staying in touch with her subjects, Queen Elizabeth II has invited the royal family to follow her example and tighten the purse strings during the financial downturn. The 82-year-old monarch has warned her grandsons Princes William, 26, and Harry, 24 -- third and fourth in line to the throne -- that all ostentatious signs of living it up would be inappropriate, according to newspapers.

The queen has not been completely spared by the credit crunch. Her dressmaker Hardy Amies and favoured porcelain maker Royal Worcester and Spode have both filed for administration.


Sorry! Need a translation for this Yankee on "filing for administration".

Administration is a very powerful process for control, where a company is insolvent and facing serious threats from creditors. The Court may appoint a licensed insolvency practitioner as Administrator, this places a moratorium around the company and stops all legal actions,

X Factor judge Simon Cowell is more famous than God or the Queen, according to a survey of youngsters released today on National Kids' Day.
The TV personality rose from fifth place last year to knock The Queen off the top spot.

..Almost every day, in fact! She wears almost everything a number of times but is canny enough to spread out the appearances & vary the accessories & jewellery to distract attention. She is till wearing some outfits that first appeared 7 or 8 years ago - some more that that!

Can we start a new thread on the royal ladies recycling their outfits? Princess Anne and the Duchess of Cornwall have been reported in the press for doing it, they were critical, but now it's a good thing, so we'll see a lot more of it. I always wonder where I've seen a particular outfit before.
