Yes, more or less. On this occasion, the visitor "kisses hands".

Well, at least now the Queen will feel more in her element, as she swops the grumpy Scot from Kirkcaldy for an Old Etonian....

Injured Prince Philip plays the frustrated spectator at carriage driving contest | Mail Online

Prince Philip has never been one to let his advancing years get in the way of his passion for the sport of carriage driving.

But yesterday he was forced to watch from the sidelines - or rather his Land Rover - at an event he once competed in for Britain.

Oh dear. Did the photographer have to choose this particular photo of the Duke? A pathetic photo of a strong man who happens to be elderly. JMHO.

Wonderful pictures, Ice! I just love how HM matches her scarves with the outfit she's wearing. NO one can wear them and look as good as the Queen! I wonder just how many she owns...

Same thought that I always have when seeing her like this, udyusa .
She always looks sweet and feminine with her scarves, but I haven't
seen anyone else who succeeds in that as well .

Prince Philip attended again more privately, but was pictured nevertheless.
He watched the Coaching Marathon. The gallery also includes some more
pics of the Queen and Princess Haya of Jordan who attended the show as
well today.

Queen Elizabeth's steed Stardust III wins side-saddle race in Royal Windsor Horse Show | Mail Online

Quote:
The Queen is accustomed to being in the presence of some of the most glittering and dazzling items money can buy.
But when she was handed a shiny silver trophy she could only look down in disbelief.
As if to say, 'Is this for me? How kind', the monarch appeared chuffed to be given the cup, awarded to one of her steeds in the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

''

I can imagine how she felt... it was an occasion where if she was just plain Elizabeth Windsor.. she won the prize. Accepting things as a monarch of Great Britain she represents the nation. This one was for something for her.. her horse.. It must have felt really really good for her I think.

New day, new scarve

The Queen pictured today at the 4th day of the Royal Windsor Horse show.
Watching the carriage driving competition with lots of fun (Pic 1 and 2) and
watching the Shetland Pony competition a bit more critical

Prince Andrew has been with her, at least for some time and Prince Philip
was one of fence judges during the carriage driving competition (Pic 5).

The belga gallery includes all days and is updated daily:

In the first picture she looks ever so beautiful and youthful.
Does anyone know who the two people are sat with the Duke? Neices/Nephews or just friends?

The two others sitting at the table with DOE are the other fence judges. This photo was taken during the carriage driving competition.

Advantage Andy Murray as the Queen visits Wimbledon - Telegraph

It could inspire Andy Murray to go one step further than last year and reach the Wimbledon final. Mandrake can disclose that the Queen plans to attend the tournament for the first time in more than 30 years.

She was last at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in 1977, when she presented Virginia Wade with the ladies' trophy – the last time that a British player triumphed in a singles championship there.

Last year they predicted that she would attend if Murray made the final and I wonder if that prediction only added pressure that affected him negatively.

Regarding the headscarves, the Queen is at heart a countrywoman - always has been, always will be.

It surely must be much more comfortable to wear a headscarf than a crown - though I rather think the headscarves come from Harrods.

I personally have never seen a picture of The Queen with any scarf that wasn't Hermes.
Also, although Harrods was reportedly sold in a 3am secret deal a few days ago... considering the relationship with the owner of that store... doubt we are contributing any money to the till of Harrods from the Royal purse.

I do believe that Hermes is the one and only brand that she wears, Period!
I read that about Harrods being sold and I have to agree that HM must go directly to Hermes to get her scarves... I would think with all that she owns that they must just gift her with them after all this time! :)

I'm not sure yet whether the Queen attended today or not
(maybe the galleries will be updated again) but Prince Philip
was pictured and obviously enjoyed it this time

Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh carriage driving in the Laurent
Perrier meet of the British Driving Society during day 5 of the Royal
Windsor Horse Show on May 16, 2010 in Windsor, England.

Prince Michael of Kent also took part.
