Jo Tweedy in the fail don't know who Lady Sarah Chatto is, the same goes for Vickiie Oliphant in the lying express.

The 90-year-old was snapped in a vibrant turquoise and cream hat, teamed with a co-ordinated thick tweed jacket, mid blue skirt and black gloves.
HM is 91, not 90.

Oh gosh, I don't even know how some of the "reporters" for the rag press even got their jobs. Lots of regular people are unaware of who Lady Sarah is, but the point is that Jo Tweedy and the other authors of the Express articles are journalists and should know who they are writing about.

It's a shame because the Daily Fail has great photos, but the content of their articles isn't really worth reading most of the time.

You're right, most people are unaware of who Lady Sarah is, but journalists should (as you wrote) know who they are writing about.

And both Fail Online and the Express have had several articles about her, especially after her participation in the BBC documentary ''Elizabeth at 90'' last year.

That's the same article that Dman posted earlier today, and Sarah Chatto is still being described as an aide to the Queen.

Thanks for the response. What I really want to know is whether I could go to church there when I am in Scotland next year. I don't think the royals would be there, but if they are, can I go to church with them?

HM with her amazing smile is looking great.

Article from the Telegraph:
Queen meets Bletchley Park veteran to help mark the centenary of the Women's Royal Naval Service
Quote:
The Queen met a Bletchley Park veteran as she helped mark the centenary of the Women's Royal Naval Service (WRNS) and the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps.

The visit to the Army and Navy Club was the Queen's first public event in London since her Balmoral summer break.

It comes a day after the announcement she will not lay a wreath at the Cenotaph this year as part of the annual Remembrance Sunday ceremony.
Video from ITN:

I would imagine that HM really enjoyed this centenary as she can personally identify with it. The Queen was a truck mechanic for the Auxiliary Territorial Service which was the women's branch of the British Army during WWII.

She is Patron - it is a Naval event.

Actually, with reading the article, it states that the Queen met a Bletchley Park veteran as she helped mark the centenary of the Women's Royal Naval Service (WRNS) and the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps.

A long quote from a very long, but pretty good Fail article from Rebecca English tonight - really worth a read - see eya's post 427.

Quote:
She also met three sprightly ladies - aged 90, 92 and 94 - who, like her, served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) during the Second World War, the Queen, 91, smiled and remarked: 'You're looking well on it.'

'And so, may I say, are you,' said Joan De-Val, a truly youthful-looking 92.

Among the ladies she met was Betty Ebb, 94, from Birmingham, who worked with the legendary code breakers at Bletchley Park.

The Queen, who has taken a keen interest in the work undertaken there, exclaimed: 'Bletchley Park!' when they were introduced.

Mrs Ebb worked registering the messages that came in for the code breakers and only found out two years ago that her department dealt with those referring to the Holocaust.

The Queen appeared fascinated and could be heard to say: 'And yes many have only found out recently, haven't they?'

Despite being a year older than Barbara Danter, 90, from Nottingham, who served in the ATS from 1941-44, she bent down to talk to her in her wheelchair, asking about what she did.

'She is such a remarkable woman,' said Mrs Danter.

'I told her about how I used to work in the post office, getting the letters, packages and parcels to the troops abroad. She seemed very interested.'

Joan De-Val, 92, who worked with the anti aircraft troops on the south coast, said of their meeting: 'When I told her what I had done she said 'you were busy'. She really is fantastic. There's not a lot of ladies who are still working in the way she is at the age of 90. Let's be honest, there are very few of us who would swap their lives for hers.'

All three ladies said they would be at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday and asked about her recent decision not to lay a wreath any more, Mrs De-Val said: 'I really don't blame her. She has to stand on her feet for such a long time. I think we are all very grateful for what she has done for us and is continuing to do. None of us could do it!'

In a speech, Colonel Ian Paterson, chairman of the Army and Navy Club, thanked the Queen for her support over the years.

Referring to some work that is being done on its historical Pall Mall building, he said they'll call on her in a few more years to officially re-open it, promoting the monarch to give a comical toss of her head and a snort.

Princess Anne left her mum to get on and do what she does best tonight - but they could often be seen smiling and exchanging glances.

From me: Really nice to see HM out and about again, and as Sky News Royal Correspondent Rhiannon Mills said tonight: ''The Queen remains the House of Windsor's greatest asset''.

OK - Harry got "shirts" at the wheel chair event. Plural. "Shirts." In photos, one says "Harry;" what about the other(s)?

I can pretty much guess what is on the other shirt but I don't want to speculate. It just makes sense that as Harry and William brush up on the people they're going to be meeting at an event, its also quite possible that those that are going to meet the princes also do a bit of brushing up. From watching the video, its apparent that the conversations between the the princes and the people they meet isn't always on a strict, protocol level, its very possible that when thinking of Harry, they'd also think about who he's involved with. Similar to someone showing up at an event when Kate was pregnant with George and William was handed a little onesie that had "Daddy's Little Co-Pilot" on it.

I think it's just a press tease/typo. Only pics I can find show just one shirt. Hrumph.
