Good move. In terms of a national budget, seven million pounds isn't a huge amount of money. But still, this is a sensitive move.:flowers:

.... true, even though the private jet would have saved money. In fact, in the recession, they may even be able to get a plane at a better price than in other times.

Mermaid1962 03-31-2009 11:42 PM

Yes, that's also true. It would be bad PR though, no matter what the facts of the case are.

To interupt the G20 summit and its stories, I really hate the new Royal Website. You can not look back in the Court Circular, sometimes buttons do not work and other problems, I really prefered the old website, which was better.

I agree with you on the court circular bit, i can never seem to get the diary of upcoming events to work right. And we've lost the mailbox and inight sections which were quite informative and fun. That being said there are ome really good bits of teh new website, and there is some good information on there such as "a day in the life of..." for most members of the family. That being said alot of the text has clearly just been copy and pasted from the old pages and there are still no pages for the York girls, wouldn't this have been agood chance to add some?

Her Majesty looks quite lovely; that colour very much suits her. A grand lady; one who has risen above the horrid trials and tribulations of the land.

Suffice to say She is endowed with true grace.

Whenever the Queen travels, she is endlessly photographed smiling graciously as she greets other heads of state and members of the public - and now her meticulously-chosen wardrobe is set to go on display.
