Actually this makes sense to me. They not only have to consider the press but also other media such as global communications such as television and social media such as Twitter. Its kind of hard to imagine that when the Queen was a young girl, the only means of communication for the public was the press, radio broadcasts and newsreels shown in movie theaters. We live in an age of instant information.

It was not until September of 1981 that ladies-in-waiting were appointed to Diana, Princess of Wales. The ladies-in-waiting were Lavinia Baring, Hazel West, and Anne Beckwith Smith.
Nona Kerr was a lady-in-waiting to Victoria, Marchioness of Milford Haven (Prince Philip's grandmother).
Prince Philip took to calling Nona Kerr Mrs. Good.
Prince Philip was given a valet, John Dean.
John Dean had been the butler of Lord Louis Mountbatten (Uncle Dickie).

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 49m
Cmdr Peter Loughborough --who runs royal security -- is to retire from the police and become Master of the Household to Charles and Camilla

Royal Central ‏@RoyalCentral 42m
Head of Royalty protection since 2003, he also happens to be the Earl of Rosslyn - he uses ‘Loughborough’ as surname from his lesser title.

It is nice that Commander Loughborough was awarded the Queen's Police Medal. Being a policeman is extremely serious work.

How Angela Kelly rose to be the Queen's right-hand woman | Mail Online

At Windsor Castle, where Her Majesty the Queen often spends her weekends, staff have long been accustomed to hearing her say that she is ‘stepping out for a bit’.

The phrase is royal shorthand, signifying that the monarch is popping round for a cup of Darjeeling and a natter at the nearby grace-and-favour home of Angela Kelly, a woman who officially holds the rather grand title of Personal Assistant, Advisor and Curator to the Queen (Jewellery, Insignia and Wardrobe).

Privately, however, 62-year-old divorcee Mrs Kelly is far more than that — as the Queen’s private visits to her cosy home in the grounds adjoining Windsor Castle illustrate.

Little is publicly known about the woman who has served the Queen for so long.

But the Mail can now reveal the astonishing background of Mrs Kelly and the high price she appears to have been prepared to pay for her success.

Prince Charles won't be king-in-waiting and job share with Queen so he can remain outspoken:
"Charles, who this week compared *President Putin to Hitler, is no longer paying Sally Osman, who in January became head of a Buckingham Palace team set up to make him king in waiting.

But Charles, 65, has sidelined ex-BBC public relations chief Ms Osman, leaving the shadow king masterplan “in tatters” and causing “chaos” at the Palace."

Now why would Charles do something like this?

So I guess the Mirror doesn't realize that Charles has been "king-in-waiting" for 62 years?

It is interesting that the article does point out that Ms. Osman is now being paid from the Sovereign Grant, which is where all of HM's staff is paid from. Since it is a combined Press Office, and set up at Buckingham Palace, wouldn't it make sense that her compensation come from The Sovereign Grant? But maybe articles like this aren't supposed to make sense.

Oh dear. It looks very much as if the 'Mirror's' reporters went to the same school of logic as those of the Daily Mail and they both achieved a failing grade.

He is not the only one who thinks like that, when this problem started in the Crimea my first thought was exactly the same, "Putin is being a Hitler" and if the world doesn't watch out, there will be a war to end all of mankind. This man is hungry for Power, and he will try anything to get it and he is doing just what he wants regardless of what any other country thinks. His complaining of Prince Charles is because Prince Charles hit the nail on the head, and Putin does not expect anyone to react to what he is doing. There is no stopping Putin now that he has started so just watch for the next round of fire from him and see! This view I have is because of all the darn history books that I read, some men are just war mongers and want power at the cost of anything that gets in their way. Just look at what gwb did to America with his lies in regards to Iraq, we are still there and suffering the lives of many young men and women. We need more *women* in control of this world, they don't want wars, they have a better understanding of what a war cost in the terms of lives and children. Syria, what's his name, is another example of a war monger, look at what he is doing to his own people, a shame that this is still the way the world works in today's day and age!

Looks like there have been a slew of complaints arriving in the mailboxes of the Mirror from the Angry Birds that need more amusing liners for their bird cages eh? We all know how important it is to read stuff like this while we go about our "business" don't we?

They make it sound as Charles plotted and schemed of ways to rearrange a whole lot of things just so he could plot and scheme of what he would say off the cuff to someone in the crowd as he toured Canada. Oh wait!! The Mirror's follow up story most likely will be how he "planted" the opportunity to be outspoken in the crowd. Never mind.

The Queen has appointed a new physician - Professor Huw Thomas - a specialist in gastroenterology, from St Mary's Hospital.

Could mean absolutely nothing except she likes this doctor. Or it could also be in recognition that as we age we all have more issues with our digestion systems.

Actually my thought was this has more to do w/Phillip's health. Remember, that exploratory surgery he had last Summer was Abdominal Exploratory Surgery. Although we never were told just exactly why it was performed, knowing something was going on in that area *and* this Doctor is a Gastroenterologist...It just has my instincts pinging this new appt is more due to Phillip than HM.

All JMO of course.
