That's a pretty suit on her - so soft but carrying just the right bit of authority! God bless Elizabeth II for the near perfect way she performs her duties.

I doubt it.

She made her feelings on abdication known when Beatrix's mother abdicated with her comment along the lines of 'monarchs don't abdicate'. She wasn't impressed then and I suspect isn't impressed now as she believes very strongly that she was called by God to this position and only God can take it away from her - with her death.

I think The Queen fully understands the way the Dutch royals do things. I think she probably expected Queen Beatrix to step down at some point. I think she will happily send Charles & Camilla or Edward & Sophie over to the ceremonies in April.

You have to wonder thought what thoughts are going through her mind. Both Beatrix and Pope Benedict are stepping down and they are younger than she and her husband are.

I would imagine then that Elizabeth is thanking God for the strength and stamina that both her and Philip seem to share right now and will continue to do what they need to do. I do hope thought that the two of them decide to be a bit "selfish" and take time to enjoy life and each other.

The Daily Telegraph is rather excited by the fact that HM had a cheap two bar electric radiator in the Audience Room when she met with the Australian High Commissioner. The heater is valued at £29.99 apparently.

The DT then got valuations of the other items in the room as a comparison. The Canaletto and Gainsborough paintings are worth at least £2 million and £5 million respectively, for example.

They try to ID the photos the Queen has, but I'm not convinced, particularly of the photos they claim are of George VI and Edward VIII. Can anyone recognise them?

A warm welcome from the Queen and her two-bar fire - Telegraph

I'm also not convinced that it's the Queen Mother standing with the "unknown male" (who is perhaps the Sultan of Brunei). The middle picture looks more like the late Duke of Kent to me.

ETA: The hairline on the man in the portrait on the right really doesn't look like George VI's at all to me. Prince Bernhard? (The woman looks like she could be Queen Juliana or the Queen Mother.)

Yes, the picture of The Queen Mother is her standing with The Sultan of Brunei.
