They should do better research though - Savannah was born in 2010 not 2011.

I'm 5'3 and the two times I have met her in crowds she has seemed about my height so that sounds about right.

Its St. George's Day and that means new appointments to the Order of the Garter.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited St John's College Cambridge in eastern England, on
April 27, 2011, to attend a lunch and reception to mark the 500th Anniversary of the College.

The Queen looked great again, especially the hat is really nice.

That first picture of the Queen standing there with people on either side waving their Union Jack flags is almost perfect! I especially love the appreciative smile on her face. If only the Duke of Edinburgh wasn't looking so awkward as he was getting out of the car...

I just wanted to share that I have received an invitation to attend the Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour) at Horseguards Parade this year. I'm very excited & thrilled to be going - after standing in the Mall for several parades many years ago this is a wonderful event for me!

The Queen takes a weekend for herself | Mail Online

Late this afternoon, as Buckingham Palace switches from the formal to the informal and prepares for a flamboyant post-wedding party, the Queen and Prince Philip will slip quietly away.

I can do that now - HM always (since she stopped wearing uniform on the day) wears the insignia badge of the Brigade of Guards. It is a composite military insignia combining badges of Grenadier Guards, Coldstream Guards, Irish Guards, Scots Guards & Welsh Guards, inside a motto border topped by a crown.



And thank you for the kind remarks - I'll be sure to represent us all on the day!

As usual, you have already informed us of the insignia that HM will be wearing. I will be looking forward to seeing all that you have described.

You will be a wonderful representative for us, one and all. I for one, am grateful! You are a treasure.. imho.
