Queen remembers her father's death - UK & Ireland, Breaking News - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

The Queen is marking the anniversary of her accession to the throne at Sandringham.

She became monarch 58 years ago on the death of her father King George VI.

Does anybody know if the Queen used the royal train or a regular scheduled train like she did when she left for Sandringham in December?

I hope HM is using the train service because it is an unusual treat for her personally and not because she feels obliged to do so. She has earnt her creature comforts and I don't think anyone would deny her.

Ministers ‘should hold meetings with Queen every month’ | News

Government ministers or leading civil servants should be forced to outline any economic concerns to the Queen each month to prevent a repeat of the credit crunch, it was suggested today.

A panel convened by the British Academy believes that Whitehall departments will remain vigilant to another crisis if ministers have to account for themselves to the monarch.
