He still is a great entertainer

" Don't expect me to be around the next time you open a new building."
" Pay very close attention, you're about to see the world's most expericed plaque unveiler at work".
And at the end the expression on his face when he put those glasses on.

I think with Prince Philip, it's not just what he says, but how he says it. He would have made a great stand-up comedian.

The Queen is due to attend the British Champions Day Race meeting at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday 15th October 2011. [I've just been organising my wardrobe etc for next week and have been reading the information that I have been sent with my badge. I will report back on how the afternoon went in due couse if members are interested.

Alex

PS - hard to know what to wear - it can be quite chilly in mid-October so I think it is time for one of my tweed suits. I always try to dress up when I go racing as a compliment to my host etc but particularly so at events like this because there is an unwriten rule that you are meant to 'wear your smartest clothes as the Queen might [i.e. potentially] see you'.

Anyone else catch this little gaffe?

Decorative: The tableware closely follows the design of the 144-piece Rockingham service which was first used in 1938 at the coronation of Victoria

Think they meant 1838? Beautiful tea service and I would love to own one myself!

Good eyes, Osipi . That's just careless on the part of the editor or whoever looks over the content before it's printed.

That is a lovely portrait. Looks like a digital photograph.

The Jubilee Coin. Won't mind obtaining one of these myself. Great keepsake.

Lovely to see Her Majesty back after a (hopefully) few restful months at Balmoral. I love the shade of blue she chose to wear. She's one of the few people who look good in pastel colors.

I think the tea set is gorgeous and would love to be able to afford a piece but they are outside my price range.
