I doubt that anyone really knows the Queen's thoughts or feelings on Brexit. Its an area of politics and HM is a master of not alluding to her feelings regarding them. We'll probably never know what she personally thinks or feels.

The Queen laughed as she replied: "Well I'm still alive anyway."

The 90-year-old monarch shook his hand and told him there had been "quite a lot going on" in recent months.

"I've had two birthdays which have been quite busy," the Queen said.
And thank god for that

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh begin today's tour of Counties Antrim and Londonderry at the Giant's Causeway

https://mobile.twitter.com/NITourist...7Ctwgr%5Etweet

The Queen was greeted on her arrival by Mrs Joan Christie OBE, HM Lord-Lieutenant of County Antrim.

The Giant's Causeway is a World Heritage Site managed by the National Trust. HM and HRH visited the fairly new Visitors' Centre and the famous causeway itself.

It sounds like it was quite a wonderful day for HM and the DoE. From giants to nostalgic train ride with many people turning out, regardless of the weather, to wave hello at their monarch.

What impressed me the most though was how touched the Quigg family was with not only having a family war hero honored by HM, The Queen, but also being probably very surprised and honored that this woman that has met so many people over the years could actually say that she remembered shaking their relative's hand back in 1953. All I can say to that is "WoW!" No one can top HM when it comes to meeting and greeting people.

To see HM out and about with her wonderful smile is very reassuring in these unstable times.

And as a reporter said on Sky News today, ''so much has changed in the last few days, but the Queen is the constant, and for many the most reassuring presense, as the UK prepares to depart from EU.''

And thanks to everyone for your posts about HM's visit to Northern Ireland, especially to RoyalProtocol who has started posting again.

So typical, HM is in my neck of the woods and I happen to be in the US! The last time she was here, I had a job interview so couldn't see her then either. Hopefully one day.

Bushmills is a nice little town. The railway line from Coleraine to Londonderry is so beautiful, well worth a visit if you happen to be in NI.
