I love HM's bright, festive outfit. Since she entered her 80s (she's 95 now), I've had to keep reminding my mother that there's no reason at all why she should not wear bright clothes. She had been brought up to believe older people should wear dull colours and not draw attention to themselves. I'm delighted to say she's still wearing bright cerise and blues and reds, always colour co-ordinated with matching scarves and brooches, etc., and she looks fabulous. I'm sure she'll be very pleased to see HM clad in vibrant red.

I think in Roslyn's post she was referring to her own mother who is 95.

Yes, I was talking about my own mother. Perhaps I could have expressed it better.

It's the sort of thing that can happen when governments start selling things off without taking proper care with the details.

I think the lady with the Queen in the first picture is her dresser Angela Kelly. I think I recognise her from the lady when Annie Liebovitch took the famous picture of the Queen in 2007. I think it is nice that she accompanies the Queen and I understood that they are both good friends. Nice thought!

The Queen and Duke are having a busy time with regard to the family at the moment aren't they?

Two grand-children engaged within the last month and a great-grandchild about to appear.

It most certainly will be a holiday season to celebrate for sure. I expect both the DoE and HM will have super wide smiles on their faces at church this Christmas morning.

I, too, like the Duke of Edinburgh driving his wife to church ..... though the staff member looks a bit wary ....

Yes, two grandkids betrothed and a new baby to look for - it'll keep them young!!
