Over the past two weeks, Andrew Alderson has had remarkable - and rarely granted - access shadowing Her Majesty the Queen, as her arduous schedule takes her from receiving ambassadors at Buckingham Palace to discussing the finer points of cattle farming in Scotland

Lucky him. It's very interesting to read a day by day account of what our Queen does. We see her on engagements but we don't know what goes on behind the scenes. Thank you Skydragon.

I found myself thinking I'd be totally exhausted from an itinerary such as HM has and she's got a good 25 years on me too!
Its cute how most of her tea buscuits end up going to the corgis. :) My two animals are never cuter than when they're sitting there so patiently hoping for a small dinner "treat".

A Church of England bishop urged homosexuals to 'repent and be changed', as he joins a coalition of conservative parishes opposed to single-sex unions.

In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, The Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, said people who stray from traditional Bible teachings 'do not share the same faith. The coalition, which has been labelled a 'church within a church', claims to have the support of the Queen.

The way the article starts, with the "claims to have the support of the Queen." Makes it sound like she has given them a written or verbal agreement, stating she believes in what they are talking about.

"Organisers said she had sent a message to leaders of the movement, saying she understood their concern about the future of the Anglican Communion."


Understood has a whole different meaning, Her Majesty can't side with anything. Very misleading article.

I read a few months ago on the royal events on www.royal.gov.uk that The Queen was to attend the ceremony installing Prince William to the Middle Temple, but I can't find it now, is she still going? Thanks

I remember hearing that she was going as well, RP, but I don't see it on the list of official engagements. I know that the Middle Temple lists a "royal party" as attending the event, so maybe she will be there?

I had it listed ofr today, 6th July, but like you I noticed it disappeared from the royal diary so maybe she's had enough & dropped out! Or maybe it has been recheduled as I see Wiliam was doing something else today.

Middle Temple is one of the four Inns of Court which have the exclusive right to Call men and women to the Bar.

I noticed William was carrying out other engagements today as well, but on the Middle Temple website it's still going ahead today,

Strange altogether

PS I've found this and apparently it did go ahead http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukp...Mr_c9n0nhDy8MQ

The diary sent out in the most recent Majesty Magazine does show the Queen as being scheduled to attend.

Quote:
The Queen will be present at a ceremony to mark the appointment of Prince William of Wales as a Royal Bencher at the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, London EC4
No other engagements are listed. I wonder what came up that conflicted with this.

This is very strange indeed, todays Court Circular doesn't even have an entry under The Queen or Duke of Edinburgh so why the sudden cancellation??

According to The Telegraph, it clashed with another (possibly private) engagement.

It is odd though that she would put a private engagement infront of this occasion, especially since it was clearly already in the diary ofr some time

Pics 7.7.2009

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh
attend a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in central London,

What a pity - a rainy garden party and no front pic for us

The Queen's Garden party

Has anyone seen photos especially the latest one of the rain drenched party? I don't think anyone was expecting it to be so intense. Lucky Her Majesty missed getting drenched.
