Queen all smiles on walkabout ahead of Sapphire Jubilee - ITV News
Quote:
Well-wishers were greeted with a smile as the Queen went on a walkabout on the eve of becoming the first British monarch to reach their Sapphire Jubilee.

The 90 year-old was handed bouquets from the waiting crowds after the church service at St Peter and St Paul in West Newton, Norfolk.

Monday will mark 65 years to the day since Elizabeth II came to the throne.

I was about to post about this in the General News thread (since this is not a current event) but since you as administrator have postet about here, then I assume that it's okay to post about it here.

Our Sapphire Queen looked great:

Traditionally the Queen spends Christmas and the new year period at her private Sandringham estate.

This winter there were concerns as Her Majesty suffered from a heavy cold which forced her to miss church over Christmas, however she appeared to be in good health today as she made her way back to London.

The Queen has made the journey by train back to London after her traditional winter break came to an end.

Looking relaxed and wearing a lime green coat and a headscarf, the monarch was photographed boarding a train at King's Lynn station.

WELCOME HOME, MA'AM! The Queen arrives back in London by train after her extended winter break at Sandringham through illness
She recently became the first British monarch to reign for 65 years as she celebrated her Sapphire Jubilee

FOLLOWING a winter break at Sandringham the Queen has been pictured returning to London by train today.

The 88-year-old caught the 10.54 service from King’s Lynn in Norfolk to King’s Cross.
This must be an innocent mistake, for if there is a person in this country who doesn't know that Her Majesty is 90, that person must be deaf-blind.

When she makes these trips, does she ride regular first class, or is a car from her train attached to the scheduled train that is running?

It's silly, I know, but I always hope she loves the train as much as I do. The gentle rocking and sound of a train can feel so comforting/civilized. And one need never know road rage!

A first to my eye. Her makeup is noticeably unblended to the neck area. Or looks that way in the light in this room.

The Duke of Edinburgh has backed a pioneering new project that aims to reduce London bus emissions.

On his first solo engagement after a bout of ill health, Prince Philip — who drove an electric car in the Sixties and also owned an eco-friendly Metrocab— visited Vantage Power in Greenford.

Its scheme involves fitting a new engine and gear box to existing vehicles and is being trialled by Transport for London in six buses.

Philip, 95, praised the project, which cuts emissions while increasing efficiency by up to 40 per cent.

The Queen looks lovely in her blue & white dress! I would have gone with a different color shoe, but she is 90 years old after all, so she is going to wear what she feels most comfortable and sure-footed wearing. I do the same & I am less than half her age!

She seems more stooped over than usual, but still seems to be in great shape!
