Does anyone know if The Queen met the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire? She's 94 and has become frail in recent years.

It's always good to see The Queen riding and in her gear.

Thanks for this. I have to say on a hot day like this, the last thing I would want to do is to dress up and go off to open a railway station - this is why the Queen is greatly admired for her dedication to her duties. Another ice-cream for me I think!

It was interesting to learn that Charles's Eton friend Boris Johnson wrote in a newspaper in 1997 that the Spencers think they are grander than the 'upstart' Windsors.
