I wonder why the Queen has apparently stopped visiting, and meeting publicly, the visiting cricket teams each summer.

It used to be during the Lords test/s but she didn't appear to attend either of them this year, which is particularly sad given the significance of the one just finished - 2000 test in history and the 100th between England and India.

I know she went in 2009 to the Ashes test but it seems to have disappeared from her calendar for the last 2 years.

As cricket is supposed to be the summer sport in England (something I doubt from the coverage given in the press by the way) I would have thought that some member of the family could attend at least one day of such a significant milestone at the Headquarters of the game.

Nice, informal scenes - I like the Duke like that.
Pity the baby had to scream :-))

Will Phillip be at the wedding tomorrow? He sure has a heck of a schedule for a 90 year old man...

Well it has always been there but the media prefer the "Grumpy Old Man with terminal Foot-in-Mouth" that they created a couple or three decades ago!

Do you really think there is any chance at all that Philip will miss the wedding of his eldest granddaughter and the only daughter of his own beloved daughter?

He would have to be on his death-bed I believe to miss this wedding.

If he was on his deathbed, like as not he'd make them cart it to the church!

No, not really. I was just amazed at his energy and stamina. Doing engagements in Germany, flying back from Germany, and attending a wedding?
I thought it would be too much for him.
Guess I should know better by now...
While we are on this subject, I once heard a newsperson complain about how slowly Prince Phillip got in and out of a car.
I thought to myself- " I am impressed that he goes out and about at all, and that his staff do not have to carry him to and from the car." Which we may see at some point... either that, or a limo with a wheelchair lift, because he will not stop working till he is dead.

There is a German voiceover for the Paderborn visit.
Haven't noticed that before...

Here in the UK, they tried to get rid of cheques.
However, there was an outcry, mainly from elderly persons who prefer writing cheques.
The charity Age UK managed to have the cheques re-instated.

Her Majesty looks great, as always. Love the different shades of blue she's wearing.

The Queen looks very stylish. She must have a team of stylists.
