This is from Sky News. Her Majesty makes another pledge of service on the anniversary of her accession. She's a very dedicated and duty-bout person, and I remember one newspaper dubbing her 'Elizabeth the Dutiful'. I couldn't agree more.

Long live the Queen and her heirs Prince Charles and Prince William may they be great rules like Queen Elizabeth II who I think is the greatest monarch of England ever. God Save The Queen

A lovely article which details the incredibly touching telegram sent by The Queen Mother to the new Queen Elizabeth II as she was flying back from Kenya following the King's death.

Love the Norfolk picture, Her Majesty is at her best when doing walk-abouts, IMO! And happy Diamond Jubilee to the Queen, as well!

My friend and I have booked flights to London for the Jubilee celebrations and I can't wait! I'm just wondering if the route of the carriage procession for the Tuesday will be announced?

Happy Accession Day! Found these on my facebook newsfeed this morning. Always wonderful to wake up to some royal news/facts.

Accession Day, 6 February 2012 | The Queen's Diamond Jubilee
Video: Crowds give three cheers for the Queen at Norfolk Jubilee celebrations - Telegraph

The pictures/video from the nursery school in the DM article were just precious. Again, you can see that Her Majesty was genuinely interested and touched by the children's efforts. Special memory for all involved.
