I think the key word is "among" the posts he will vacate are...

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.
I am just amazed he still as much as he does for his age!

Perhaps keeping busy helps the Queen and Prince Philip live longer?

Most definitely. I can only hope that should I reach 85-90, I can do half the things these two golden agers can accomplish in one day! I'm sad to admit that they do more in one day than I probably do now... their schedule I think would totally exhaust me.

Thank you very much, Iceflower, for posting this.

So much attention is currently being focused on William and Catherine, quite understandably, that the Queen's speech at the General Synod has had little exposure. I think it exceptional, and indicative of just how far she understands the imperatives which are changing society.

Here is a summary:

Nice detail on what we could see on the dress, but I loved her wrap!

Wow, indeed! HM looks especially chic and stunning this evening. I am hoping to see the dress without the lovely wrap in the near future..

The dress is an older one, which she wore during the 2004 State Visit to Germany as well.

HM looks wonderful in that outfit, and look at the heels she's wearing! Thanks for the links, ladies.
