Nobody is perfect. We all have flaws. With that stated, and even though
I am almost positive that major royals do not read this forum, a very 'Happy 90th Birthday' to HRH Prince Philip/HRH the Duke of Edinbrough(?) of the United Kingdom. HRH has been known for his 'questionable attributes' in public and in private and his sometimes 'uppity' attitude to others. He is what he is and has never apologized for his public persona. I say 'bravo' to him. If he and QEII could bottle and patent their 'genes' for longevity, then maybe HM could finally retire knowing she and her consort have a never-ending financial nest egg to rely on! Again, HB to Prince Philip!

I love the pics, ( the Quen eating lunch on her lap is my fav) and the wonderfully human tales. that make one feel
" They are just the same as us"
To everyone else The Queen Mother was THE Queen Mother.
But to Margaret she was just a wonderful aunt.
I found the details of the Queen Mum's death , especially moving, very touching, cannot wait for the next part to come out!

Philip - the longest-serving royal consort in British history ....

but this achievement will be overshadowed by the Queen's Diamond Jubilee...

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.)
I've changed my mind on this one and now think it could be the Australian Hibiscus brooch instead.

My thoughts exactly, Thena! HM has been wearing several of these blinding prints lately. I much prefer her in lovely jewel toned solids or pastels. But.. Her smile in pic #1 is just beautiful as usual...

I found some photos of HM wearing this multi coloured silk dress in 2008 - wonder if there are any earlier events...?

I like the fabric and the color and the print. Since HM now has a matronly figure, the pattern keeps the eye moving and doesn't settle on a big lump of peach or other pastel summer color. However, it could be that she just liked the fabric.

Hasn't he been the longest serving consort for 2 years?

I'm not sure whether - or for how long - he has been the longest serving consort.

What interested me was the difference between "Diamond Jubilee" and a "mere" period of sixty plus years of looking after his wife.

I'm trying briefly to put myself into his shoes.....
