I share your sentiments. It would indeed be very heart-wrenching to see Her Majesty without her husband by her side during another momentous occasion. I hope His Highness is able to attend, but not at the expense of his health.

OK, is HM now cloning herself. How can she be in Edinburgh and London on the same day hosting garden parties? Obviously guests at one of the parties are going to be disappointed.

The one in Edinburgh is the offical GP with HMQ and DoE - part of Holyrood week I think

On the same day for the The "Not Forgotten" Association Garden Party will be held at Buckingham Palace. The PAtron of the Association, PRincess Royal, and Tim Lawrence will be hosting. Here is the link

The Not Forgotten Association » The Garden Party

Royal reporters and royal websites seem to have no ability to research or check.
Latest DM slip up is that LAdy Louise is the daughter of Sophie and Andrew.

Grrrrrrrr

Glad Philip's feeling better. My parents, brothers and I were talking at dinner about how he was sick for his birthday last year and also Anne's birthday.

The diary does list the Not Forgotten event for the Queen, but unlike all the other entries it doesn't actually say she'll be there in the text. The Edinburgh event is "The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will give a Garden Party at the Palace of Holyroodhouse." The London event is "The Queen The 'Not Forgotten' Association Garden Party will be held at Buckingham Palace." So if she isn't attending that, I could see how someone might think she was.

Well, it wouldn't be impossible so long as they weren't at the same time. In 2005 she opened parliament in the morning and had engagements in Saskatchewan in the evening, and Edinburgh is a lot closer. With a police escort and a plane that goes on her schedule, the trip wouldn't take much more than two hours.

Yesterday, June 5, the Duke of Edinburgh visited the steamship SS Robin at the Royal Docks in Newham to unveil a plaque marking the new permanent home. It is one of only 3 ships in London that are in the National Historic Fleet's Core Collection and, after a final phase of restoration, will open to the public in 2014.

Just love her smile when she is giving him the decoration. Just like a young girl again. So sweet to see. And the Duke looks well rested and less tired today. I adore these two, you can see the admiration between them, just wonderful.
