The Duke of Edinburgh will be inaugurated as Lord High Admiral on the 23rd November, does this follow the announcement made during his birthday week?

Such a nice smilling between the Queen and the ambassador of Denmark. But why is the ambassador wearing an hat and gloves and the Queen herself isn't wearing none?
BTW I like the Queen's dress.

The Queen isn't wearing gloves, that's strange to me.

I thought that too and then tried to remember if I have seen her receive anyone else without gloves. Perhaps she has and I just have never noticed.

Her smile is always so genuine. It does make me happy that Lady Louise is going to grow up looking so much like her.

I completely agree with you about Her Majesty's smile. It's always very genuine and contagious.

Now that I think of it, I don't think she wears gloves when she's "at home." to confirm my impression, I just did a quick search of investitures and receiving ambassadors, and she's not wearing gloves in any of the pictures. So I guess it's a myth that HM never shakes hands without her gloves. She does wear evening gloves at banquets, though.

I suspect the answer lies in how many people HM is expecting to meet. If it is just 2-3 people like when she is receiving new Ambassadors, she probably does not wear gloves. If she is hosting a banquet and expects to meet quite a few people, then I suspect she will wear gloves.

The Queen never wears her poppies except at the Festival of Remembrance, which is this evening, and at Remembrance Sunday itself. I really have no idea why this is the case.

What has happened to the State Opening of Parliament which is usually about this time of year? And also I couldn't seem to find the thread for this occasion to post this question- or am I just having a bad day?

It was noted in the thread last year that the next State Opening of Parliament would occur in Spring 2012.

The thread is located further down the page.

The Queen is so tiny compared to that man. I love how she carries her purse around inside.

If I paid that much for a custom Launer handbag, I'd carry it everywhere, too. I'd probably sleep with it as well.

Oh lord, how I would love one of those bags...
