The Queen was treated to Shakespeare and sheep-shearing on a visit to Lancaster today. She travelled to the city on the Royal Train and was welcomed by hundreds of flag-waving well-wishers. After a short journey from the railway station, along a route lined by representatives of the Army, Navy and RAF, the Queen arrived at the city's historic castle to be greeted with more enthusiastic cheers and applause - and a torrential downpour-

First- What?
Second- I love the Queen's outfit. That bulldog was beyond adorable, and with all the cows and sheep- shearing- I thought I was watching an episode of All Creatures Great and Small. Ice, your pictures were great too.

I think the counting the money remark was made tongue in cheek because its the Duchy of Lancaster that provides the Queen with her personal income.

How lucky is the Queen that she has such wonderful health and is able to enjoy life at her age.

Yes indeed, though she restricts herself to riding a quiet pony these days instead of a horse, and the pace has probably slowed to a slow trot rather than a swift canter! The Queen's done very well to keep up one of the great passions of her life at her age. Hard to imagine Queen Victoria or Queen Mary horse riding in their old age.

(By the way, I've never seen a photo of Queen Mary on a horse or read any reference to her horse riding. I suppose she did learn to ride but wasn't fond of it.)

The above post by kapenot88 contains photos of Queen Elizabeth and Duke of Edinburgh attending the Epsom Derby. I am surprised that Princess Michael of Kent was allowed to stand near Her Majesty.

Her Majesty looks wonderful. I think it's safe to say that HRH the DOE wasn't a fan of the music!
