Exactly. She said herself in a documentary '' I am old and slow and can't be everywhere'' She has done her part for decades and I am sure grannies girls are happy to take some duties on.

It is almost as if people are demanding to control what the royal family share with us rather than accepting what they decide to share.


It is demands like this that explain why William is so paranoid about the public and his privacy - he is controlling what people are seeing with regards to George and I get the feeling that he is setting the agenda on this - a more private and less open BRF because the public seem to think they have a right to see everything.


If The Queen and Philip do decide to ever release a new family photo - good - but it should be an expectation.
I think you're exaggerating what's being said here a bit, Bertie. No one is demanding that they release such a photo, rather we're saying that it would be nice if they did this. I have no expectation that the BRF will ever release such a picture, I just wish that they would because it's the kind of picture I would like to see - I enjoy seeing the pictures of the whole family leading up to the 90s and I understand why they stopped doing them (between the aging family and the fractures that occurred in the 90s it makes sense), but it would still be nice to get one of the whole family again, particularly now that there's a return of stability to the family and since I don't think they've released a shot of the Queen, DoE, and all their grandchildren before.

Also, on the issue of how much William is letting the public see George... okay, we need to be realistic here. While William hasn't always released the best pictures of his son or the ones that put George as the focal point, he hasn't actually hidden his son away. We've gotten regular pictures of him since he was born - there was the introduction to the press when they left the hospital, the pictures that Michael Middleton took shortly afterwards, a lot of access at the christening despite it being a private event, pap. photos of George and Kate when they went on vacation last January, the official photo released before the Australia/New Zealand tour, a lot of access on the tour, George watching a polo match with his mother, the official photos released for his birthday, the revelation of the photo they used as a gift on the Australia/New Zealand tour, and now the Christmas pictures. With one exception every time they've released pictures it's been at least 2, usually more. We've had a lot of access to George. William has not hidden him away in Kensington Palace, the most he's done is request that paps not take pictures of George while he's out with his nanny - which is actually a very fair request, and not unlike the similar requests that celebrities with children have been making.

A very creative wreath.

Wow...What a lovely and traditional wreath. I used to know all the symbolism behind what's on that wreath and why, but it's been so long since I learned it that...Well...You know how that goes. :)

They have not stopped releasing them. The last photo was in 2007 to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of The Queen and Prince Philip.

Everyone was in the photo except the Duchess of Kent and Louise who was still a child. Autumn was included even though she was only engaged to Peter Phillip.

NBC have posted this in breach of the official embargo. I imagine that someone is in deep trouble and HMQ will not be happy.

I think this should not be posted.

Thank you. You are right What happened was earlier today someone posted on twitter that NBC News had broke the embargo and posted the Queen Christmas which in fact they did (there is a screenshot somewhere) but it was removed...
After a couple hours

I ask someone where it was because I could not find it and they sent me this video and after I posted it I remembered that same headline from last year and ask the person if they were sure it was 2014 as people's were saying it was 2013. And Martin from royal central replied that it was from 2013

That person had watch it and when they back to history and tried to access it it did not work.

So NBC did post but was quickly removed

I apologize

I didn't even bother looking at it because I want to watch it when it actually airs.
