The Queen's hands look like they are burned or she has a rash. (2nd pic with Kate.)

No wonder she wears gloves. Prince Charles might have inherited his red fingers from her.

No offence to The Queen but in both pictures her hands just look wrinkly.

She's in her eighties and she has arthritis . How else are her hands supposed to look. Are we observing or being petty?

It's been interesting reading about the new Australian Governor-General Peter Cosgrove. I was born a Cosgrove and I have a cousin Peter Cosgrove!

The Duke looks pretty good considering. Amazing that he still continues to maintain his schedule of events. He is quite a tough old chap. :)

The Duke of Edinburgh today visited Lille Barracks in Aldershot where he was briefed on what the 1st Battalion has been doing in recent months. One if its companies, The Queen's Company, had been to the Falkland Islands for eight weeks and he recalled a couple of visits to the South Atlantic, one of which included an unsuccessful fishing trip. "I tried fly fishing for sea trout but nothing happened," he said forlornly-

THE Duke of Edinburgh got a warts and all taste of Army life including some colourful barrack-room language when he visited the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards at Aldershot today-

Not surprising that the old sailor loved every second of it. I bet he'd love all of his visits to be like that!

Wonder how much of the barrack-room language was coming from the old seadog
Must say he looks in fantastic shape compared to how he looked around Christmas time.

Another photo of the Queen receiving Angela Merkel. Image

Is the black and white wedding photo in the left hand side of Peter and Autumn? It looks too modern to be of any of her children, and it's not William and Catherine's.

I love that this room is a bit like a dedication to the soldier's and navel officers in her family in the shape of photos of them all. :)

It's Mike & Zara's wedding picture. On that same table is William & Catherine's engagement portrait.
