Pretty in pink: The Queen looked stylish in pastels on tour in Manchester today... as she came face-to-face with a Dalek
Quote:
The Queen looked stylish in a beautiful pink outfit as she arrived in Manchester for a day touring the city today. Hundreds of people warmly welcomed the Queen as she officially opened new hospitals in the city, as well as paying a visit to Manchester's new media hub in Salford, MediaCityUK, where she started a fun run with the wave of a flag. The Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, arrived in the city by train, disembarking in at Manchester's Victoria Station this morning.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh look amazing.

Great to see Philip look so good, as well as HM. What a lovely couple they make.

This had a beautiful feature on the news today, the reaction to HM and Prince Philip was fantastic.

Lovely images from today, thanks. My friend lives in Manchester and turned up for the occasion and saw HM. I am a bit jealous.

She looks just splended (they both do). Good to see her wearing her prettiest (IMO) unidentified ruby brooch. It's my favorite of the unidentified ruby brooches.

They do look great, don't they? I love Her Majesty's outfit and the brooch. It's delightful to see His Highness out and about. So glad he's feeling better.

Saturday's edition of The Sun newspaper reports that the Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and the leader of the Labour party Ed Miliband, along with Mayor of London Boris Johnston are backing the campaign to rename the tower which houses the Big Ben bell as the Elizabeth Tower.

Looks like this has legs and is likely now to happen. I think it's a fitting tribute to HM. Remember also that the Olympic Park which has been built for this summer's games in London is going to be called the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Since leaders of all major political parties appear to have come to a consensus, the change is all but certain to take place. Hopefully, it will happen before June.
That'd be a very fitting tribute indeed; one symbol of Britain bearing the name of another.

I am not sure how I feel about renaming Big Ben...

Big Ben is the bell inside the clock which is inside St Stephen's Tower. The bell will go on being Big Ben whatever the tower is called, because the tower and Big Ben are 2 completely different things.

And exactly how does St Stephen feel about this? Has anyone bothered to ask?

Still like the sound of the Elizabeth Eye instead of the London Eye. Maybe it's the alliteration!

If QEII outlasts Victoria as the longest reigning Monarch she should have an equally long lasting monutment, IMO. Long may she live to reign.

I think this is a lovely gesture. Her Majesty has done a great deal in the past sixty years and deserves such a tribute.

Indeed.

The London Eye is such an eye sore I hope they leave it as Blairs "Cool Britannia" legacy and avoid linking the Queen to it.

Heck, I think they should erect a prominent monument to HM; she's so deserving of it. Maybe a statue will be commissioned for her like the one of Queen Victoria.

Quite possibly after her death they will put one up near the statues of her parents.

Fourth plinth is reserved for the Queen - News - Art - The Independent

"The fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square is being kept free for a statue of the Queen riding a horse which will be commissioned after she dies, say senior officials."
