In the 70's and 80's the Queen wore some really dowdy outfits and hats. I think she almost always looks lovely now. She is completely appropriate for her age, but nice.

I always thought the Diamond wedding anniversary was 75 years.


Edit: I just looked it up, apparently Diamond can be from 60-75 years.

That was a little rude, no? I would imagine it would be held around the time of their 60th anniversary in November of this year.

Let's put the hackles down, folks, thank you.

Since the wedding was in November, I assume the celebrations won't be happening till sometime around then. I always get nervous when some of these major celebrations, especially when involving old people, are planned a long way ahead of time, but so far the people concerned have always managed to survive.

Just FYI Sister Morphine, Queen Victoria's 60th anniversary as Queen was called the Diamond Jubilee. I did wonder what would have happened if she'd lived another 15 years and had a 75th anniversary, but I suppose it was pretty much certain that she wouldn't. I'm afraid the same will probably be the case for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh's wedding anniversary.

Given the last fifteen years HM has had, I couldn't survive another fifteen and I'm several decades younger!

I expect they'll both be around for this celebration. The Queen Mother used to joke about the rehearsals for her funeral. HM must expect, if not demand, the long preparations by now. After all, most Royal events are planned up to years in advance. This is just another date...in some ways.

On the Royal Insight page, one question was asked concerning the Diamond Jubilee and they answered that nothing had been planned yet.

I love it! Green is probably my favourite colour.

HM has been dressing very smartly lately, and in wonderful, bright colours. I like her current style much better than that of a few decades ago, and, no, I don't think that's just because I'm a few decades older.

She's very much a stylish older lady now.

She also seems to be getting very laid back in that she seems so calm and relaxed anymore. Perhaps her horribus anum that she suffered years ago and now a faded memory and allowing her to enjoy her last years of her life/throne.

She's always looking cheerful and contented. A great lesson in Healthy Living for her subjects and for us who greatly admire her. Long May She Reign!!
And Oh! Yes! She is dressing fabulously too.

Great photos. Thanks for posting them, Iceflower

HM has such a wonderful smile. She looks genuinely happy, and has a beautiful face. Even her eyes are smiling.

Brighton welcomes Queen and Duke
By Ruth Lumley

Brighton Welcomes Queen And Duke (from The Argus)

Outside the library, the Queen accepted flowers from small children waiting patiently outside in the sunshine with their parents.Seeing the Queen receiving so many blooms provoked jealousy in two-year-old Lucas Whisker, who held out his hand - leading the Queen to oblige by handing him one of the flowers that a young girl had just given her.

Quote:
But the sight of the Queen being handed scores of brightly-coloured flowers by Royal wellwishers left young Lucas wanting a slice of the attention. As the Queen reached Lucas in the line, he promptly held out his hand - and to his delight the smiling Monarch obliged by placing a pink tulip given to her by a young girl into his outstretched palm.
