Hey Warren! Thorn in your side here! :biggrin:
Another question about the arms.
Now this Yankee wonders if this coat of arms is unique to HM.
Is there a picture of her fathers to compare it to? And one can safely assume that when Prince Charles becomes King he will keep most of them but will add his own "touch" to the arms?
Thanks! :wave:

They're identical to her father's, except for the style of the crown. The Queen wanted the "Tudor" crown changed to an "Imperial" crown. But heraldically, they're identical. The type of crown is just artistic license.

BBC NEWS | UK | Queen's image marks Google visit

An image of the Queen has been incorporated into Google's homepage logo to mark her visit to the internet giant's British headquarters.

The specially-commissioned image, called a "Google doodle", features the Queen's profile and a crown.

The new Google logo made especially for the Queen is so great! I love how much she's interested in learning about technology.

Somehow I never thought of the Queen and Google in the same thought before. Hmm.

Note that the Lady in Waiting is keeping a very firm eye on Boris. :biggrin:

I don't blame her, he reminds me of a thuggy union rep :ohmy:
I remember seeing him at the Olympic games closing ceremony and thinking what an untidy, unkempt looking man he was.
He should get a hair cut as well.

Penny Royalty 10-19-2008 02:57 AM

I really like her dress and the way her silver hair beams with beauty. Her hair seems like pearls themselves. Very beautiful a woman. Thanks Iceflower for sharing with us a ceremony in honor of the Olympic medal awardees. Long live her Highness the Queen.
