Thanks iceflower for the pictures! As always, Her Majesty looked very lovely during her visit to the hospital.

radiology department.
Nice story, isn't it? On the second pics she seems to think:
Aren't these a bit too brown yet?

One can always make banana bread out of them!

She can save them for a few days and then pass them on to The Princess Royal.

Princess Anne gets on with her work without fuss. But she's also quite particular. Her fruit bowl must contain a very black banana and ripe kiwi fruit.

You are welcome, ZandraRae and Russophile and selrahc4,
your ideas are great

Today the Queen and Prince Philip attended the Sunday service
held at St Mary Magdalene's Church, on the Sandringham Estate,
Norfolk together with Peter and his fiancee Autumn Kelly:

Thank you so much iceflower! I love how faithful the royals are about going to church on Sunday's and us getting to see pictures. I think it is really nice how Autumn is getting so adjusted to Peter's family, it seems as if they really like her, I hope the other grandchildren will follow suit. In the third picture Autumn looks like Lday Sarah Chatto, because that looks like a hat and coat Sarah would wear. Thanks again iceflower!

Now that's a 'KIND' headline!
Hope Her Majesty does not read the Reuters!

6 years? Not really that long when you consider in the past he'd have probably been shot for treason or attempted regicide.

At least it's SOMETHING, honey! In some liberal places in America he'd get probation!

Maybe I'm too blood thirsty. Personally I'd have strapped him to a table and let everyone in Britain poke him with a knitting needle until he could takes no mores. But then I'm a Marquis. I mean a Sadist.

If this happened in Russia (if Russia had a Queen) the KGB would wait for him to swing the axe, (knowing in advance he had intended to) and then shoot him dead there and then through the head.
The axe missing the target by mere inches.
You can say one thing about Russians, they like to have clear evidence of intent to kill before taking decisive action!

You know Honey, that's one of your most endearing qualities and why we love you!

It seems even Oscar-winning Australian actress Cate Blanchett is not immune to the Duke of Edinburgh's talent for gaffe-making.
