Lovely dress HM is wearing. However, in the second pic I do not see her wearing a brooch. Perhaps because of the gold buttons... Unusual, to say the least.

You are right, a brooch would be to much with the gold buttons.

Her Majesty is amazing -- my mother is 82, two years younger than HM, and in very good health, but complains endlessly if she just has to go to the store a few miles away. And here the Queen is receiving people and visiting places multiple times a day!

Ooops! The poor lady in pic 2 attempting to curtsey, is having a tough time of it. HM is just smiling with her gracious smile while her hand is being crushed....

Which once more shows, that it's not as easy as it often seems..


Today, November 17, the Queen has received Mr. Rana Dasgupta, winner of
the 2010 Commonwealth Writers' Prize at Windsor Castle. Also present was
Dr. Mark Collins, Director of the Commonwealth Foundation.

Since 1987 the prize aims to recognise the best fiction by both established and
new writers from Commonwealth countries and to make sure that these works
reach a wider audience.

Yes, HM is a wonder.

I wouldn't be too hard on your mother, my mother is 80 and I'm the one who complains about having to go to the store!! I am sure HM can still do what she does as she has always done it and, well, you know -- mind over matter.

Actually that is one of the better paintings I have seen of HM as an older woman.

You do wonder what might have been going through her mind at that moment

I love seeing pictures of the Queen! She looks good in almost everything she wears. As a lover of color, she is a fashion inspiration and shows that as one gets older, one doesn't have to fade into the background!

The hats always makes me smile. My mom is 83 and was a great lover of hats in her day.

The queen loves weddings, and this forthcoming wedding will give her a new lease of life - that's if she needs it at all :-)

Not sure I feel "the Queen loves weddings" - she seems to studiously avoid as many as possible - only going to a very select few these days and sending someone else to represent her wherever she can.

I should have said "The Queen loves weddings from her own family/friends circle".

She is right in being very choosy about non-family weddings. Apart from anything else, people could feel slighted if HM were to leave someone out.

I think that her own wedding is still - for some - the yardstick for the ideal, timeless wedding - and of course her Coronation.

Prince Philip to scale back duties when he turns 90 - Telegraph

The Duke of Edinburgh is to relinquish official roles with more than a dozen organisations when he turns 90 next year, in the first such concession to his advancing years.

Among the posts the Duke will vacate are his chancellorships of the University of Edinburgh, held since 1952, and University of Cambridge, held since 1976.

A dozen or so out of over 800 doesn't seem like he will be cutting back all that much does it?
