There's no sadder sight to see than a person who's a pale reflection of himself/herself due to age and deterioration in health, so the fact that Philip continues at his age in the manner to which he's accustomed is truly awesome. He has lived and is still living life with his usual gusto and panache, and the fact that he refuses to ease off is a testament to his will and demeanor. I think if his duties and responsibilities were denied to him as an attempt to slow him down, that's when we'd see a deterioration occurring for sure.

I never tire of seeing pictures of Her Majesty and children. She has a way with them.

It is lovely and it makes you think what she is like with her grandchildren when they were younger, and how she is now with Louise and James. It's a lovely sight to see.

Good to see Philip back to work again. Isn't it true that their children will be accompanying the Queen when she does some engagements to reduce the workload of Philip? Is it just their kids or will the spouses (Camilla, Sophie and Catherine) go along with the Queen too?

I know Kate is supposed to accompany the Queen on some engagements. I don't know about the others.

I think that was just a rumor, so far no informations about Kate&QEII's joint visits.

Love the pictures of the Queen with children, she (and they) seem delighted!

The notice was that most of the immediate members of the Royal Family would be accompanying the Queen (not just Kate), because of the Duke being advised by his doctor to cut back on his engagements. One notice that I remember seeing was in The Telegraph, which is one of the more accurate newspapers.

The eve of the anniversary of her accession to the throne, the Queen & Duke attend a service at Sandrigham - both look very good I think

Please note that all posts regarding Prince Phillip being a potential suitor to a Princess Elizabeth have been moved to Possible Husbands for Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) .

Thank you for the videos . It looks like winter wonderland over there, and Her Majesty and the Duke did look absolutely fabulous. I'm happy to see that people turned out to see their monarch and consort, especially on the eve of her accession, which is a bittersweet occasion no doubt.

This picture was posted on my twitter, and I found it to be sweet and lighthearted. Always nice to receive some candy .

"The 30-year-old Duchess is to accompany the Queen on two Diamond Jubilee engagements next month, and a courtier says: ‘The Queen is taking a very close interest in the Duchess’s development.

The engagements they will carry out together promise to be invaluable learning opportunities for Kate, as well as being a real honour.’"
