It looks like a large hunk of styrafoam. Something to keep her from sinking.

This is one of Liz's best outfits from the past year, and so pleased to see it repeated...

My first thought was "an Elizabethan ruff on steroids."
Now I'm thinking that it's the 16th century version of "cement shoes." ("Hey, tough guy, why are we rowing into the middle of the Thames?" Answer: "Uh, we're just gonna launder your ruff.")

Good one
And I suppose that they paid a lot of money for this "thing"
The portrait at least is nice
Did the queen use that chair in her coronation?

Now about that statue... I would have paid good money to hear what DOE had to say about that "interesting" modern art statue of Queen Gloriana.

One host of the BBC had made a bad joke with Queen Elizabeth II. He declared HM as dead:

Google Nachricht

I think declaring people who are still alive is very ugly.

Yes the MailOnline had an article a few weeks ago.

Does anyone know why none of the higher up royals attended any of the Dunkirk Remembrance events? I know Prince Michael was in France.
