Thanks for the pics iceflower. I know the Queen is very well respected by the Jewish community in the UK. Which makes it so disappointing that Israel remains one of the very few nations on the planet that HMQ has not visited. Perhaps now that she's visited Ireland for the first time a visit to Israel is something the Foreign Office could look at?

Thank you ( I was looking in the general British threads) oh well that means a longer wait for another sight of all that pomp & royal regalia.

On another note, the Queen shows no signs of easing down her schedule judging by recent engagements. She looks well on it too & never less than immaculate in her dress & demeanour -with or without gloves.

Me too, Thena! HM carries the "Royale" style. If I could choose, I'd prefer the "Nocturne." HOWEVER, if I could have any piece of Launer, I wouldn't be fussy. Their work is just out-of-this world.

Perhaps you should write to the Israeli government as I believe they have to extend an invitation before any state visit will happen. They may not be interesting in receiving the British monarch. Philip I believe has visited privately to see his mothers grave.

That's because her next engagement was at The Council for Monarchs and Mimes.

I've done some reading on this subject elsewhere and the gist I got from those who are 'in the know' was that it was very much a case of the British government not being willing to sign off on such a visit. I have no doubt that the Israeli government would be extremely willing to host the Queen but the suggestion was that there was a group of senior civil service mandarins whose sympathies lie with the Palestinian side to such an extent that allowing the Queen to visit Israel would be to somehow indicate approval for the actions of the Israeli government. I have to say that I think, if true, this is a very sad situation.

I've no idea right now, the speeches on the official website only date back to 2002..


The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh officially opened East Surrey College, Redhill, Surrey,
today and attended a Service of Thanksgiving in Guildford Cathedral, Surrey, to celebrate
the 50th Aniversary of the Dedication of the Cathedral.

The Queen looked wonderful in dark red:

I know the Queen spends Christmas at Sandringham, but is every member of the RF invited?
Or only the closest ones?

Are any other guests invited?

The Kents and the Gloucesters are not on the invite list for Christmas at Sandringham. Princess Margarets children are invited.
The Queen does host a lunch at Buckingham Palace for the extended Royal Family a couple of weeks before Christmas. Other than grand weddings this is probably the one time of the year when most of the family manage to get together as a group.

Dear Iceflower,
The Queen attended a reception that evening at St James's Palace for the Royal Scots Dragoons. Might you be able to find a photo please.
I could not.
Many thanks in advance.
Why do I need 10 more characters to post?
I am being told this message is to short.
It will not post.
