The Mail has an article and nice large picture from the Order of Merit luncheon that The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh held today. Nelson Mandela, having the honorary Order of Merit since his state visit to Britain in 1995, stands behind the Queen and the Duke.

(referring to this pic) Everyone is in dark or darkish colours, apart from Nelson Mandela and...
Who's the odd person out (and therefore the stand-out)?

Thanks for the post, fanletizia. For me the link you posted doesn't work. In case others have a problem, here is a link to the gallery.

Polfoto gallery: search "Queen Elizabeth"
Latest pics: The Poetry Day at Buckingham Palace yesterday, and also The Queen meeting members from the New Zealand Rugby League in the Palace Bow Room.

The Gloucesters were also on the books for this event but I haven't seen any pics with them yet.

I don't know why but the hat she wore in Didcot reminds me strongly of Willy Wonka. I think it's the shape of the hat and the way it sits on her head, and the black trim, but could also just be another example of how crazy I am..... In any case, the dark colors don't suit her as well as the bright ones; though the "Willy Wonka" feeling made me smile. Great movie, that.

Forgot to mention....... The Queen has sent a message of good luck to the English rugby team in advance of the match against South Africa at the Stade de France near Paris.
Queen to send message of support to England rugby team - Yahoo! News
She confirms that The Princess Royal is to represent her at the match.
It also says that a Clarence House spokesman said Prince Harry is closely following the Cup and implies that Harry & William will be at the match today. But I am not sure the CH guy actually said that....

These pictures are from October 15, but since they were not posted before, here they are.

Queen Elizabeth II, wearing the regimental brooch, hosts a reception at St James's, London for the Queen's Royal Lancers to mark the Sixtieth Anniversary of her Colonelcy in Chief.
London, UNITED KINGDOM-15/10/2007.

Queen Elizabeth II meets Trooper James Kerry, 17, the youngest Queen's Royal Lancer (young he may be, but he certainly has manners )

Princess Elizabeth carried orchids into Westminster Abbey, but they do not appear in the wedding photographs.
Royal biographers usually treat the mystery of the missing bouquet as a pre-wedding hiccough, along with the tiara that snapped and the pearls that were left at the wrong palace.
I had noticed in the past that some of the wedding pictures included a bouquet and others did not, but never really thought about why. This explains a lot.

From the article:
Quote:
But some time during the couple's exuberant return to the Palace, or during the wedding breakfast, he says, the bouquet was mislaid and couldn't be found in time for the group picture.
A week later, his father, founder of Longmans the florists, was asked to make an identical bouquet so that the bride and groom could be rephotographed - this time with orchids.
They passed through London after the first part of their honeymoon - at Broadlands, the Mountbattens' home in Hampshire - and once more dressed up in their wedding finery. But the crowned heads and distinguished other guests could not be reassembled, so posterity has a choice: Philip and Elizabeth with orchids, or Philip and Elizabeth with relations. Not both.
In looking back at various photos I can see now that while the photos without the bouquet show the couple pleased and happy and smiling, the ones taken a week later show them with different body language and a lot more sparkle and zing in their looks and smiles. I'd say that speaks well for a very successful honeymoon.
