Well said, Kitty ! :-)

I'm really pleased the Queen chose the region of Dumfries and Galloway as a destination. It has a border with England.

The area gets flooded regularly, so the people would have particularly appreciated HM's visit.
I used to have a a static caravan just across the Border near Carlisle, and flooding is very common either side of the Border.

Queen Elizabeth II honoured six Scottish soldiers yesterday at the Palace of Holyrood House:

Four members of the Black Watch (Military Crosses), a commanding officer (OBE), and a Royal Logistics Corps soldier (Queen's Gallantry Medal).

Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh attended the Presentation Receptions
for The Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award holders,on July 16, 2010 at the Palace
of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. Since 1958 The Duke of Edinburgh Awards
has challenged over six million young people around the world to try new
things, learn more about themselves and work together for their own benefit
and that of their local communities.

Good to see Prince Philip in such a great mood, laughing and smiling!

I really don't know why The Queen Mother's former Lady-in-Waiting, Lady Angela Oswald, is on one of the pictures with the Queen at RAF Marham yesterday. Perhaps an extra Lady-in-Waiting?

Which picture is she in?
She may not be there to be a Lady-In-Waiting, she might be there for the event itself.
HM looked wonderful in purple.

Photo gallery of the queen's year exhibition with Photos of the Queen visiting it. The exhibit looks interesting, and I'm glad to see my favorite tiara on display!

My local paper, "The Scotsman", has lots of coverage of the Royal Holiday.

One headline: "Bags of fun as royals begin birthday cruise"

There are photos of the Queen's travel bags, labelled "THE QUEEN", and of a stack of board games, including Articulate, Carcassonne, Monopoly, etc.

The "Hebridean Princess" is a former car ferry. People travelling on the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry to Ullapool were amazed when the Princess moored next to it.

The security operation seems extensive, including underwater search teams, a large police presence at Stornoway ferry terminal, and a Royal Navy shio and the SBS.

Oh, and the Queen is paying...

HM wore a pant suit when she went on a similar cruise in 2006 with her family. She also wore one when she was released from hospital after knee surgery.
She manages to always look smart, indeed!
