Yes, indeed! Thoroughly enjoying himself, as it should be. At his age, he and his queen make every moment count.
It is a pleasure to see.

They both look so happy! I can't say that I am a fan of HM patterned dress but she still glows.
Does anyone recognize her brooch? It is lovely..

I could see where it could be construed as too busy, though I agree, she does glow.

Are you certain it is a 'badge', Joye? It looks to me to be a brooch... but then I perhaps am wrong. I am still interested in what it is. Thank you.

Hopefully, GillW or someone with much more info will weigh in with what this "brooch" is. All I can add is that it has to be specific to the place they were visiting because HM changed from the Jardine Star that she started the day wearing.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip attended a service at Westminster
Abbey as part of a visit to the Abbey and Westminster School, on
the 450th anniversary of the granting of their Royal Charter by
Queen Elizabeth I, on May 21, 2010 in London, England.


I can't decide whether I prefer the portrait or the sculpture of Queen
Elizabeth I The galleries include many more nice pics!

They probably spent an obscene amount of money on that sculpture as well. To use the royal "We", We are not partial to the sculpture. .

Good heavens! That statue of the first Elizabeth looks like she's wearing a giant Life Saver around her neck
The second Elizabeth looks lovely today

At first looking at the sculpture I thought I was looking at C3PO. I really don't care much for it at all. HM looked absolutely lovely as she always does.

I am LOL at your description, BMC!!! It most certainly does look like a giant Life Saver.
I can't help but wonder what is going through HM's head in looking at the portrait in pic number 6...
HM does indeed look wonderful today. Beautiful colors on her.

Very interesting, modern sculpture of Queen Elizabeth I. I wonder who and when the artwork was created?

I love the painting. In the portrait Queen Elizabeth I looks like she has dark brown hair instead of reddish hair. Is the portrayal correct?
