Awesome! Yay, Dame Maggie! I expected her to wear something more dramatic- she looks so different out of costume and character.
Well deserved m'lady!
Now if only Robert Hardy would receive and accept a knighthood. Crossing my fingers for the New Years Honors list.

The Queen today sent the first royal tweet under her own name to declare a new Science Museum gallery open. Normally a plaque is unveiled to herald the launch of a new project, but after touring the attraction dedicated to the history of communication and information the Queen touched a tablet screen to send her message to the world. The royal tweet read: "It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.".

The Duke of Edinburgh has been pictured wearing hearing aids for the first time at a reception in Buckingham Palace.
The hearing devices were visible to guests only because of a thin wire next to each ear.
