Now, Titch has been granted an interview with The Duke of Edinburgh for All the Queen's Horses, which will be screened by ITV on Sunday. In it, the Duke, 88, talks about his passion for carriage driving. "If you have a common interest, nobody cares a damn where you come from or who you are," he says.
It looks to be a very interesting programme.

I suppose these floral dresses are the ones that we normally see under coats. She looks so lovely in blue.

Der Westen is reporting that Queen Elizabeth II had given German Town Castrop-Rauxel in the year 1952 four swans. The report asks where the "royal" swans are now.

Martin Samuel: How Ma'amy Army was all of a Twitter | Mail Online

An article to do with the Queens visit to the ashes.
I think it was wonderful of her to go, the twitter quotes are rather weird though. Never thought i'd read something like that coming from apparently the Queen.

Those twitter quotes are indeed very unusual, at the very least.

One is right cheesed off. Stuck down here with the corporates, not a bit of atmosphere. To think I gave up a box at Haydock for this.
...Phil made a seven-foot snake out of pint pots but was told off by some snooty cow who called herself the assistant catering manager.
...Phil said: 'Who do you think you are, love, the Queen?' We all had a right laugh about that, but she made a complaint to her boss.


I simply can't imagine the Queen even thinking like that, let alone telling someone to write it. Let's just hope she knows the content of 'her' twitts.

I wonder who she was supporting considering she is Queen of both countries?

I think the Queen has an obligation to remain neutral when it comes to sporting events between countires of which she is Head of State. I don't think she does, myself, but I firmly believe she should.

She looked lovely too, btw.

She didn't, it was only the authors imagination.
---------------------------------------
As regal demands go, it was a remarkably modest one: could one, perhaps, have a little tipple of Dubonnet and gin during luncheon at the cricket?
But the Queen's request ahead of her visit to Lord's last week caused something of a kerfuffle among the staff of Marylebone Cricket Club - as they hadn't got the French aperitif in their otherwise well-stocked drinks cabinet
