HM looks very elegant in this color........it brings warmth to her face and is becoming on her. It is really nice to see her still out doing what she does best, meeting the people and recognizing the good that they do. Concerts are also a great stress reliever.

iceflower, Thank you for these photographs and the dailymail article.
I like the peach color of the Queen's hat and outfit.
An organ concert is a marvelous event to attend.

* The Queen was at Newbury this afternoon to see her horse in the 4.45
* Bay filly Enliven was introduced to racing fan President Higgins, yesterday
* Unfortunately, Enliven could only manage a seventh place finish

The Queen grimaces as her horse trots into a paltry seventh place finish at Newbury | Mail Online

All I have to say is that if she is a horse racing fan and he's a horse racing fan then the logical conclusion is the Queen and President Higgins probably formed quite a warm and enthusiastic friendship. Gotta love it.

I know that, but I would love for him to receive a knighthood.

Well, it's the next rung on the ladder after the CBE, roseroyal, so it might just happen!

I haven't seen any articles about the Easter service yet but this is a great tribute to the Queen ahead of her birthday. Don't be thrown by the title of the link (the Telegraph didn't change it). The headline of the article is "
The Queen at 88: Healthy, happy, witty and wise.'

Easter Service is usually discussed in the family events thread as more than one member of the RF attends usually.
The new portrait is being discussed in the Portrait thread.

I don't know why the link says the article is about the portrait (the Telegraph failed to change the link headline) if you click through the actual article is entitled "The Queen at 88: Healthy, happy, witty and wise." I'll edit my post to reflect that.

I did see one post of a picture of the queen but, as I said, have not seen any articles.

I know it's two years away but, if God spare her life, I can't wait to see what will be planned for Her Majesty's 90th Birthday.
