I don't know. As a sailor's wife, the queen could well have a little laugh about that... Doesn't the duke call her "Tigerlilly" sometimes?

I think it is great - something that has been done for centuries with regard to monarchs but these days it seems that no one can see the humour anymore.

Isn't it illegal to use the likeness of a member of the Royal Family in advertising? Couldn't this sign be considered advertising?

I could go either way on this. HM really hasn't cultivated an image of a tough woman, not like our Gert Boyle who's CEO of Columbia Sportswear where this sort of image is common place.

As pubs have used caricatures of monarchs for centuries to advertise their pubs the answer would have to be a 'no' as the precedent is very strong that this sort of thing is legal.

But normally that is for deceased monarchs. I thought they could get in trouble for using images of the current monarch in this way without permission. I think the royals ignore it these days though as otherwise it just makes more publicity for the people who do it.

Message of condolence following the earthquake in New Zealand, 22 February 2011

Quote:
The following message was sent by The Queen to New Zealand Prime Minister John Key:

I have been utterly shocked by the news of another earthquake in
Christchurch. Please convey my deep sympathy to the families and
friends of those who have been killed; my thoughts are with all those who
have been affected by this dreadful event. My thoughts are also with the
emergency services and everyone who is assisting in the rescue efforts.

ELIZABETH R

Nice ensemble. Contrasting pockets and lapels seem to be back in favor for the ladies of the BRF.

Great photos. Many thanks Iceflower.
This is the first time I have been aware of The Queen having her handbag on her arm, for these presentations. Usually she places it on a chair she will be sitting on.
Wonder why the difference this time?

You're welcome, joye! I always wonder how heavy her handbags are, I can't
imagine that they are as much filled as normal handbags are..


Today, March 3rd, Queen Elizabeth presented poet Gillian Clarke with her Gold
Medal for Poetry watched by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy at Buckingham
Palace.

Thankyou for the many posts of The Queen plus handbag.
How very unobservant I have been.
