Her Majesty's sympathy for schoolgirl, 8, who wrote letter to the Queen after she was refused a place at her chosen school
Quote:
When education bosses refused to let her study at a school where she felt safe and happy, obsessive compulsive disorder sufferer Jessica Compston appeared to have run out of options. But the eight-year-old had other ideas and appealed to a higher authority - the Queen. In her best handwriting, she complained that the ‘government arent letting me go to Littele Thetford Primery School’, adding the ruling defied her doctor’s recommendation.

The letter this little girl received from the Queen is very interesting indeed. It basically explains that as a constitutional monarch she must act on the advice of her MPs and so has sent the letter to the relevant MP! Presumably said MP will now be required to advise Her Majesty what he intends to do about the problem that the little girl faces!

I agree completely. Her smile is positively infectious.

I'm glad that the little girl wanted to take action, and asked for help, even if Her Majesty couldn't directly help her. Hopefully now, after the matter has been brought to the attention of the appropriate person, the case will get resolved to the satisfaction of all.

The Queen looks just stunning, although the hat reminds me of my last year's birthday cake.
How cute were the inflatable corgis? The Queen certainly appreciated them!

Last April 29 must have been a great day for you - birthday and massive royal wedding all in one day!
Thank you, E! Last year, I took off from work and was up at the crack of dawn wearing my faux tiara to watch the festivities. And unfortunately, I didn't think to take a picture of the solar Queen.

By quite a long way, this is the nicest outfit I have seen The Queen wearing, in a long time.

Queen Elizabeth accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh presented new colours to the 1st Battalion and No. 7
Company the Coldstream Guards at Windsor Castle, May 3, 2012. Later they met soldiers and their families
during a reception at Victoria Baracks.


The Coldstream Guards, the oldest regiment in the British Army, will form part of the guard for Trooping the
Colour in honour the the Queen's birthday in June following which the regiment will prepare for deployment
to Afghanistan once more.

Apparently all of the worlds reigning monarchs have been invited to the luncheon at Windsor and to a more formal champagne dinner at Buckingham Palace hosted by the Prince of Wales.

Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh attended day two of the Royal Windsor Horse Show at Home Park on May 10, 2012 in Windsor, England.
He looks great. Also it's nice to see him in some casual, comfortable cloths.
