The Queen as patron has visited the Royal Foundation of St. Katharine in London
today, March 24, 2011.


The Royal Foundation of St Katharine is one of the oldest religious foundations
in Great Britain. It was founded in 1147 by Queen Matilda, as a hospital for the
poor and patronage of The Foundation has been reserved unto the Queens of
England ever since.

Did anyone notice, or is it just me, there is some kind of purple skin irritation or so, under the Queen's left eye? Hope that HM is alright.

Looks like a touch of makeup, but I could be wrong....I'm a guy and what do I know about makeups....

To me it looks a bit like the sort of bruise that Philip has had in the past, and many of my elderly friends and parents get from time to time. It looks like a burst blood vessel near the eye making it look like a black eye - but it is simply a burst blood vessel but it can be painful at times. Not an uncommon feature of the elderly.

And take a look what happened in pic 4 : The Queen was shown a ferret,
called 'The Brain'...

Ooooh, that's one of my favorite brooches, which I haven't seen in a long time. Too bad it doesn't have a name.

It was one of her wedding presents.
But the brooch with the Diamond Jubilee logo, I don't know that one.

I think it may be one I call the Commonwealth Rose - not because I know any provenance for it, just that HM has quite often worn this one for events related to the Commonwealth. I don't hae a really wonderful photo of it, but this is it....

Oh yes - it looks like an inch below the main brooch HM is wearing her "gold Blue Peter" badge. The competition the young lass won was run by the famous UK children's TV program of that name and HM was presented with the gold badge some years ago. (For those who don't know, Blue Peter badges are much coveted and are presented to guests or others doing something the show considers worthwhile. They are usually white plastic with the show's emblem in blue.)

Yes, she first wore it on a Golden Jubilee tour of Windsor in 2002. Still looks great though!

Pic 2- Gorgeous- one of the best of HM I have ever seen!
Pic 4- She may be mad keen about horses and dogs, but ferrets, not so much!
Pic 5- Fantastic smile!
