You are most welcome I've paid more attention to
the upper part of her outfit, the hat and the brooch and so
on, that looked fresh and ready for the spring to me, the rest
may be indeed be a bit boring

Here are two more galleries with pics from today:

Lewis Hamilton receives MBE
Quotes from the above Telegraph link...

The 24-year-old racing star described collecting his MBE from the Queen as "one of the most overwhelming experiences" of his life.
"I was so nervous to meet her. It was one of the most overwhelming experiences I've ever had. I'm kind of lost for words," he said.
"I don't think you realise until you're standing in front of her how special it is."

Pics 10.3.2009

Britain's Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who is the Chancellor of the
University of Edinburgh, wears his ceremonial gown as he watches the
installation ceremony of the university's new rector Ian Macwhirter in
Edinburgh, Scotland March 10, 2009. The traditional 'Chairing of the
Rector' parade involves students carrying the new Rector shoulder-high
on a Sedan chair around Old College grounds.

The Duke seems to be enjoying himself. He's still a distinguished-looking man.

How great that he is still so physically able to enjoy his sports. He certainly looks like he's having a fine time in this picture. Thanks, Iceflower for all of the photos you post!

The Queen has expressed her disapproval of historical inaccuracies in The Young Victoria and said some of the costumes were too German.
