Hebridean Princess Cruise

I'm sure the whole family will enjoy the walks along the secluded beaches, some of which you can only get to by boat. I wonder if they will indulge in a little clay pigeon shooting or the fishing. I don't see the Queen taking a speedboat ride!

I have never seen Her Majesty in pants, except fot the years she was 20 or something. I think I remember a picture of her, when she was in jeans.
She looks lovely, imo. Wish she would wear pants more often.
Hope the whole family is going to have a great time.

The annual opening of the State Rooms in Buckingham Palace this summer holds a special treat for visitors who will be able to discover the secrets of the wardrobe of Queen Elizabeth II.

As British monarch and Britain's Head of State,The Queen does not interfere or meddle in such problems as The Queen & Prince Philip are to remain neutral always.Such problems (the letter) will be forwarded to the appropriate government department or agency by Buckingham Palace for further action / review.In the letter,The Queen should be addressed or salutated as either Your Majesty or Ma'am and not Your Royal Highness which is reserved for other members' of the British Royal Family including the Duke of Edinburgh.

That special really impressed me. Absolutely fantastic to see such good pictures of them all. Especially when one won't be going to London (again) to see it with one's own eyes.

No need to be surprised and shocked of as The Queen has worn pants previously.The Queen wore pants when she was discharged from King Edward VII hospital in central London after undergoing surgery in her left knee to remove a torn cartilage in December 2003.
