Thank you for the link Daria_S. What a lovely photo of the Queen receiving those flowers from Prince Philip in Perth.

Wow, what a beautiful brooch from the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery! That's just the kind of brooch that HM will love. A truly special expression of admiration and respect.

I'm thinking that brooch is absolutely gorgeous and will be well worn over the years by HM. It really warms my heart that so many people and regiments and countries are really going all out to try and tell HM how much she is loved and appreciated and cherished.... and its not even 2012 yet.

I agree entirely Osipi. The fact that the Regiment was able to fund such a stunning brooch purely from donations from serving and retired members is evidence of the appreciation you describe.

Thank you for the link . What a beautiful and touching gift to commemorate such an occasion. It'll be a wonderful keepsake for Her Majesty and the future generations of Windsors.

Beautifully put, EIIR and Osipi.

I love the symbolism of 60 diamonds in this brooch- what a lovely gesture from Canada...

I don't know if this article was ever posted, but it was a nice one to read:

This was a lovely article to read and thank you for posting it. Prince Philip is as much of an institution as the Queen and has certainly been a contributing factor in her strength and steadiness through all her formidable decades on the throne. I know I saw an empty space at her side at the Christmas service and am glad he's back to fill it.

What a great read. Prince Philip has been Her Majesty's support system for so long, and it's lovely to know that after all these years they're still going strong and love (and are in love with) each other. Often people wish that they could find a partner for life who will be a best friend as well as a husband/wife, and only few succeed. I loved reading the fact that they enjoy each other's company so much and don't need to have a lot of friends around.

A new book about HM came across my desk today for anyone who's interested in reading it, called "Elizabeth the Queen - The Life of a Modern Monarch" by Sally Bedell Smith. This also includes William's and Kate's wedding. One of many books, I'm sure, that'll be published for the Jubilee. Anyway, I was looking through the color photos and above the one of Elizabeth and Philip on their wedding day, there's his quote: "Cherish Lilibet? I wonder if that word is enough to express what is in me."

One of those "awww" moments. Sometimes I do like my job for the goodies that come my way.

That brought tears to my eyes. How tender and loving. Shows that underneath that feisty exterior there's a man with a heart of gold .

More news to be added to the Diamond Jubilee thread. Perhaps now that we're getting more and more information on the celebrations the thread could be opened?

'Finest pink diamond in existence' to be highlight of dazzling display of Royal Jewels at Buckingham Palace

There are some gorgeous pieces on display in the article. Would love to obtain the exhibition catalogue, because I doubt I'll be making it over to London to see this live.

Thanks for that story. I have to say, HM still sits a horse well at 85 and it's incredible to see her still riding at her age. I had read that she made a concession to her age years ago by giving up her Thoroughbreds and riding Fell ponies, a smaller breed of horse. And as far as not wearing a riding helmet, HM never wore helmets at all much to the concern of family and friends who had urged her to wear them for obvious safety reasons. I guess at this late stage, she's not going start wearing a helmet now.
