#TheQueen expressed her fears that the crisis over Ebola is distracting attention from the deadlier menace of malaria.

#TheQueen is reportedly afraid that malaria will have a comeback because people are not paying enough attention to it. #ChathamHouse

The Queen has expressed concern that malaria is not getting enough attention due to the Ebola outbreak, a medical professor has said. Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen was visiting foreign affairs think tank Chatham House in central London last night to launch a new leadership academy. During her visit, the Queen removed a brick from the wall between Chatham House - the Royal Institute of International Affairs - and neighbouring Ames House to symbolise the expansion next door. .

The Queen and Prince Philip looked great today on their anniversary. Extra smiles and an extra "pep" in their step. Congratulations to them on 67 years together, what a wonderful testiment to loyalty and duty, not only to their country, but to each another.

The picture of the little boy looking up at Her Majesty is so sweet and precious. Both appear to be quite happy. What a great memory.

I really have to admire this couple. One can tell by the looks that pass between them two that there's something very extraordinary there between them. 67 years isn't a commitment, its a lifetime. No need to mark the day with bells and whistles or red roses that say "happy anniversary" (of course they may have had something kept private) but its business as usual. Of course this included a trip to Scotland on the Royal Train and I can imagine that over a span of 67 years, there are quite few memories involving that train. Through thick and thin, the good times and the "I don't like you much right now" days, through milestones and foibles they've been a united front that faces the world together.

I have a term for couples like this. They're one good egg. As different as the white is from the yolk but together, they're one amazing egg.
