Thank you, joye! Your information is appreciated. I wish it could be a closer photo of the brooch and I am happy that it was shown.

Prince William, who is due to visit Australia and New Zealand in January, has been asked to make a side trip - to a South Pacific jungle to greet a tribe who worship his grandfather, Prince Philip, as a God.

The second in line to the throne will be making a flying five-day visit to Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne, but the Yaohnanen tribe on the island of Tanna, have put out an invite for him to add a couple of days to his itinerary so they can lay on a feast for him

Should that go in the Prince William and Prince Harry sub-forum?

(The Prince Philip Movement is also interesting to follow!)

I also read that the people want Prince Philip to go and live with them.

Channel 4 will be showing a 3D film of the Queen's coronation! This is awesome...I can only hope it will be shown in the states at one point. Word is that when the Queen heard they had found the footage that she invited the filmmakers (now in their 80's) to come shoot some more footage! Very very very cool.

The film contains 17 minutes of previously unseen footage:
The film shows the Queen traveling to and from Westminster Abbey, a trip to the Derby at Epson, and footage of the Queen and Prince Philip on the Royal Barge after she was crowned.

Thanks for the heads up! I would kill to see such footage! (Although I doubt it's coming stateside.. :( Really nice for HM to encourage such filming, though... keeps the monarchy alive in people's eyes, IMO...

HM seems to be quite enjoying this Investiture. In pics 2, 3 and 4 she appears to be happily chattering away.
The recipients all look rather chuffed too. Sweet.

Wife of murdered headteacher Philip Lawrence collects MBE for charity work with young people

Quote:
The widow of murdered headteacher Philip Lawrence received an MBE today from the Queen for her charity work with young people and hailed the honour as an 'appropriate memorial' to her husband.

Despite admitting that the occasion was, 'bittersweet', Frances Lawrence insisted that she 'hoped for the best' for her husband's killer when he is eventually released.
Mr Lawrence was 48 when he was stabbed as he tried to intervene in a scuffle outside the gates of his London school in 1995.

As the Queen today presented her with the award in recognition of her charity work, she told Mrs Lawrence that she too felt it was a fitting tribute to her husband's own work with young people.

That sounds wonderful, it would be absolutely unique to see.

The Queen in 3D: The extraordinary film that reveals a completely new dimension to the young Elizabeth | Mail Online

Quote:

It's the summer of 1953, and a beautiful woman is causing a stir as she alights from a barge on the Thames and engages with onlookers in front of a lone cameraman and film director Bob Angell.

'I was thunderstruck, because I realised she had such star quality,' says Bob. 'The camera loved her - and she knew just how to work it.'

Extraordinary photo. I have only seen one other photo, about the same period, of The Queen in daywear, wearing Family Orders.
