Sir David Jason - very fitting. It's not everyone who can play a pint-size cockney. No, you need an actual pint-size cockney.

How lovely to see the Queen in the Northern Ireland! And it's wonderful to see her being received by President Mary McAleese, what a special meeting!

I immediately went to the President's official website to find out any additional details, and this is what I found.

Plus, here are two additional photos that I found at Getty Images. Here the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are together wit President Mary McAleese and her husband Dr Martin McAleese at Hillsborough Castle in Belfast. Photos by Tim Graham Picture Library/Getty Images.

I've always liked Brian May, even moreso than Freddie Mercury, so I was glad he got this. It was such a surprise back when the Beatles first got their MBEs. I wonder what John Lennon would make of Sir Elton, et al.

The Queen seems to be knighting more and more entertainers lately.

Queen Elizabeth is welcomed by company chairman Niall Fitzgerald to the Reuters building in London December 13, 2005. The Queen visited Reuters' new global headquarters in London's Canary Wharf on Tuesday and then sent a simulated despatch to mark the official opening of the building.

Here are a few more pictures of Queen Elizabeth today as she opened the new building of Reuters at Canary Wharf in London. The Queen also got to send a simulated despatch to mark the official opening of the building.

I love the aubergine/wine red-ish suit the Queen wore today, very stylish!

she looks great. I dont much care for the smoke stack hat, but I love her suit. the burgundy of the coat and the bright red of her dress go well together. it's almost "pre-raphaelite" in a way.

Canada Post has released images of their new stamp commemorating HM's 80th birthday:

:)

This stamp will be available on January 12.

On an unrelated note, I'm loving the new Fay Wray stamp :

Fay will be available on May 26.

Giant Christmas Card for HM The Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace - December 15, 2005
(from wireimage)

Royal footmen stand with a giant Christmas card to the Queen in the Marble Hall at Buckingham Palace in London, December 15, 2005. The card bears an image of a Christmas tree decorated with a thousand photographs of members of the public who also sent their Christmas wishes to Queen. Computer manufacturers Hewlett Packard gave the National Children's Homes charity 1 pound for each contribution.
