SamCam is fashionable. She looks good all around and I even like her hair. She is a very attractive woman and deserves neither criticism nor elevation to fashion icon.

I think she's an 'in-between' for me. I don't see her lacking fashion sense, but I don't see her as a fashion icon. She looked respectable at the Games, and that's a good way to be.

I do love that she visits classrooms and actually observes what the kids are doing, and then gets actively involved. It looks like all parties had a day to remember.

I love this pic. She looks like a happy Granny, not THE Queen.

She looks like a grandmother visiting her grandchild at school in a way like a young prince William there and granny visiting officially as the Queen physically symbolically but to william it would only be granny not the Queen.

I would think too that the young ones also would see her more as a "granny" than HM the Queen. How many young people of that age actually realize the important role that the Queen plays? I would love to hear some of the questions that they put to HM and I bet she gets a big chuckle out of them too.

I remember when I first saw pictures of Her Majesty on the news program back in USSR. I was about seven or eight, and I thought she looked like a granny (more so, because one of my great-grandmothers dresses similarly to the Queen). Those images made the concept of monarchy very relatable to me, even though I was taught that anything royalty-related was bad and the great country of USSR had no room for such things.

I think allowing the kids to meet Her Majesty face to face is a great way to show just how real these people are. Kids want to be able to relate, and meeting someone who is a granny is a wonderful way to do it.

This whole story just creeped me out. A man who was obsessed with Her Majesty ended up living (and dying) a little too close to Buckingham Palace. Makes one stop and think about the amount of interest that some may take in these people.

Sounds like an episode of Bones. Very creepy. I've never heard of such an extreme obsession with the British monarch before. There have been political obsessions with monarchs in the past, but this is very different.

I just had an awful (though funny) thought, "At least he died doing what he loved!"

Is it disturbing that I laughed out loud when reading this? Clever summary .

I'm glad I'm not alone ... I came out with a real chuckle. Very clever. :)

Drats. Wonder if they removed the article, so that other psychopaths out there won't get any ideas (and I'm not implying that anyone on this forum fits that description, just saying that the world is full of nuts who take these stories as 'inspirations' for their own sick deeds).

I like the pizzaz he added to the unveiling. It's always good to end on a humorous note.
