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.
