agree - that is a fabulous color on her ... wonder if Philip picked it out for her.

and does that look like a Mike and Zara wedding pic in the background? I love to see the family photos sprinkled about her.

I loved the 65 photos but they said 50th year on the throne instead of 60th.
Happy 65th anniversary to Her Majesty the Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh!

I loved the pics too! I thought that the 50th year thingie was about the pic taken on the 50tth year she'd been on the throne. One for each year of their marriage. Behind every great woman there is a good man eh?

Gary Barlow returns to Buckingham Palace to receive OBE from the Queen | Mail Online

Quote:
Take That star Gary Barlow said he was 'deeply proud' after returning to Buckingham Palace on Wednesday to be awarded his OBE by the Queen.
The 41-year-old X Factor judge, who has spent more than 20 years in the public eye, was given the title for services to the entertainment industry and to charity.
Barlow masterminded the triumphant Diamond Jubilee concert - staged at the Palace during a special bank holiday weekend in June - which featured a host of stars including Stevie Wonder and Sir Paul McCartney who played to a televised audience of millions.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were in Bristol today to visit Bailey of Bristol and Bristol Old Vic Theatre, as well as Hartcliffe and Withywood Ventures and they attended a lunch at M. Shed, Princes Wharf.

On November 23 the Duke of Edinburgh was invited to the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble for a special luncheon engagement, the final event in the club's 175th anniversary year.

Great to see the DoE in such good form.

There are a couple of photos from the Zimbio link in iceflower's post.

This makes me feel a tad uncomfortable but HM is, as usual, cool 'under fire'.

While this one is just an instant classic.

I was SHOCKED that the DM did not run the second photo with a caption along the lines of "Her Majesty affronted by Green Man at Combermere Barracks!" It was a no brainer for their style of journalism and a classic photo. Made me chuckle.

And the first photo has a delightful mis-use of depth to make it seem Her Majesty may need to take a step right. Funny bit!

No one has yet ID'd the brooches she wore (I am sure regiment-ally related) - and I don't have the software to make them clear so I am on tenterhooks.

ITs the look on HMQ's face with the "instant classic" and a caption is required. My contribution is "I hope Angela Kelly donesn't see this!"

Well, the lower one is the Queen's Household Cavalry Brooch.
I have absolutely no clues about the first brooch though because there are no good quality pictures right now.


Whatever happened to short back and sides? Queen looks rather perplexed as she meets sniper in full camouflage

Quote:
It is a dilemma faced by anyone invited to meet the Queen: what exactly does one wear? This sniper serving with the Household Cavalry Regiment opted for his work outfit... leaving the Queen looking more than a little perplexed. Looking like Chewbacca from the movie blockbuster Star Wars, the crack marksman wore a 'ghillie suit', a type of camouflage clothing designed to resemble heavy foliage, leaves and twigs to remain concealed from the enemy. The suit even moves in gusts of wind.

As she met the horse: "Ah, more my cup of tea"!
