Very nice of the Emir to ask Her Majesty about her health.

Last year, Wolverhampton was voted the one of the least happy cities in the UK. Today, at least, it was all smiles as the Midlands city enjoyed its first visit from the Queen since 1994.
Her Majesty was in the Midlands city to visit a printing firm which specialises in creating postage stamps and to open a brand new car factory which is expected to bring 1,400 jobs to the area.
Joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen was all smiles as she arrived at International Security Printers in Wolverhampton's i54 business park and looked on typically sprightly form as she met workers and well-wishers.

Lately Prince Philip has been looking much better than the Queen...

Sorry for my ignorance: but why "Royal Hugnesses"? Doesn't the queen have a higher title i.e. "Her Majesty"?

Her Majesty is the highest style that The Queen holds but...she didn't stop being HRH when she became The Queen. So although inaccurate to use the lower styling it isn't totally wrong (any more than calling William Prince William now that he has the higher title of Duke of Cambridge - he is still Prince William as well).

We heard The Queen Mum described as a High and Mighty Princess at her funeral (and the same terminology will be used at The Queen's).

I think Her Majesty looks quite lovely today. Her smile lights up the room.

Stick around kiddo and I can, with 99.99% accuracy, predict that you will come to a pretty good understanding of how it works for the British royals and aristocracy. There will always be more to learn but this is the best place for that kind of education.

The ITN link was referring to both the Queen and Philip. The Queen is Her Majesty but Philip isn't. He is His Royal Highness. When there is both a King and Queen again, the 2 of them would be Their Majesties.

Thanks, Iceflower. Some days she is just so cute - today is one. And while this is not the fashion thread, she looks great and majestic in this tweedy ecru/gold
