So true, Russo! I am so happy that HM finally has switched her black gloves to her white summery ones... So much prettier!

Prince Philip attended a reception for adult volunteers who run the Cadet
Forces, London, 2 June 2010. The reception was part of the national
Cadet150 celebrations, marking 150 years of Cadet Forces in the UK.
The event pays tribute to the 25,000 adult volunteers who work with
131,000 cadets across the UK.

89 - it's really impressing, but also kind of worrying if you think
of the fact how quickly things can change - I'm sure you know
what I mean..

Queen Elizabeth today attended Derby Day, the second day of the
Epsom Derby, in Surrey, southern England, and enjoyed it a lot.

Oh she does look very beautiful in yellow.
She must be quite warm though.
She really has always enjoyed watching horse races.

She must miss her friend Lord Porchester on these "horsey" occasions. He'd usually be standing in her area somewhere.

It's not just watching horses she enjoys. She's been a formidable horsewoman herself.

Although I don't like the idea of side saddles for women, I've always thought the Queen looked very elegant on side saddle at the Trooping the Colour events.

Riding a horse while sitting sideways must be quite awkward. I'd think that it would be harder to control the horse. But you're right, Renata. HM always looked elegant side-saddle.

Until, say, a century ago, anything other than riding side-saddle would have been unthinkable for women, in terms of "modesty"....

I do know that, but because she was watching the horses, I chose to comment on her like for watching horse racing.

You know, HM is one of the very few on whom yellow really looks good on. It's one of the few colours where you either look awful in it or you look stunning.
HM usually looks lovely in it.
I'm so happy her upcoming tour of Canada will allow her and the Duke to attend this year's running of The Queen's Plate. I also enjoy watching horse racing, so this year I'll have two reasons to tune into the broadcast of the race.

I completely agree and throw the color green in there as well.
Then again, IMO, HM looks awfully wonderful in anything of late. I think Russo is a romantic where HM is concerned. . .

I've heard of th is surgery, well he's well enough to do this engagement. It's amazing how the pair both continue with engagements even after accidents or surgery's.

Their duties always come first, it's indeed amazing..


Queen Elizabeth today presented Lord Patel with the insignia of a
Knight of the Thistle, during an audience at Buckingham Palace..

** Pic ** belga **


... and attended Royal Investitures, also at Buckingham Palace.

Milk deliveryman Tony Fowler (pic 3) has worn a very special jacket
designed like the coat of a Friesan cow He for example had
helped the police catching some criminals including blocking car
thieves with his milk delivery vehicle.
