The Telegraph published this very nice article about the Queen's Consort:

Duke of Edinburgh: right man for the job - Telegraph

It's evident that the D of E has truly been the Queen's "strength and stay" these many years. I hope HRH is better soon!

Artist jubilant when the Queen donned robes and diamonds
"she was shimmering"

excerpts

When the Australian painter Ralph Heimans walked through the gates of Buckingham Palace, he was armed with just one guarantee: 60 minutes with the Queen to capture her diamond jubilee portrait. ''My concept, the context I wanted to place her in for this portrait, is unusual because it is outside the palace. We'd had a hint, an email with an informal OK 10 days before, so I had to race around and use that time to visit sites and find exactly the right setting."

The setting chosen for the portrait to celebrate the Queen's 60 years on the throne is top secret: all will be unveiled to the public in the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra in October. What is known is that his canvas measures 3.2 x 2.5 metres. He hinted that the portrait would explore the dynamic between the Queen's public role and "the very human and personal part". The setting was of special significance to her diamond jubilee, he said.

"We had also asked if the Queen could wear specific robes but we were told that due to her commitments and the time required, this might not be possible,'' he said. ''But when she arrived it was wonderful; she had gone to the effort, there were two pages carrying the robes and she was wearing Queen Victoria's diamonds. I was not expecting to be so stunned, she was shimmering The theatre of the entry was unforgettable.

"We stood at one end of the corridor and it took her five minutes to walk down, the light was shining beautifully through the windows and every time she took a step the light shone off the diamonds The anticipation as she came closer and closer, it was quite a dramatic entrance and nothing like it have I ever seen."

Duke of Edinburgh to attend second River Thames pageant despite ending up in hospital after standing in the cold rain for several hours at the last water parade
Quote:

The Duke of Edinburgh plans to be by the Queen's side at a second river Thames pageant later this month despite ending up in hospital after the last water-themed event to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee. Prince Philip fell ill with a bladder infection and was in hospital for five nights after standing in the cold rain for more than four hours during a parade of more than 1,000 boats along the River Thames in London. It was Prince Philip - himself a brave young wartime naval officer - who particularly wanted a water-borne tribute to his wife of 64 years.

I don't think it's been published in full because it won't be released until her birthday this Saturday. A few names have been bounced around, Kate Winslet and Gary Barlow for one :)

You might have seen some reports on people receiving an honour in the Queen's Birthday list in Australia. The Queen's birthday was celebrated on Monday 11 June (it's always the 2nd Monday in June) in almost all of Australia with a national holiday and the release of the Australian version of the Queen's Birthday honours list.

One or two names have also leaked from the UK version which will be released on her official birthday in the UK which is the same day as Trooping the Colour is held (16th June this year); Gary Barlow and Kate Winslet are apparently among the recipients.

The Queen greeted by thousands of fans in Hertfordshire as she goes solo on day two of Diamond Jubilee tour
Quote:

She might not have been flanked by Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge as she was yesterday, but the Queen attracted an equally impressive turnout as she travelled alone to the county of Hertfordshire today. Opting for a visible lilac coat and floral print dress for day two of the Diamond Jubilee tour the monarch was greeted by thousands of cheering fans as she arrived in the market town of Hitchin, where many had stood waiting since the early hours of the morning. Crowds stood six or seven deep waving Union Flags and cheering as she passed by shortly before midday, while hundreds of pupils from 24 schools in the area had been bussed in specially for the visit.

She looks lovely in lavender. Too bad the Duke wasnt with her, its so nice to see them together. She looks happy though.

EIIR 06-14-2012 01:41 PM

What an amazing turnout in Hitchin today. HM must be so gratified with the tremendously warm welcome she receives everywhere she goes. Some might have thought that now the big national Jubilee events have been and gone the public would lose interest, but clearly not.

Nice to see the Queen using the Royal Train! :flowers:

EIIR 06-14-2012 03:13 PM

I'm counting down the moments until the inevitable article in the Guardian or Independent on how much the Royal Train costs per outing though, Bert. You know it'll come eventually.
