Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip News and Picture Thread V
 
I thought it would be appropriate to start a new thread with the Queen's message to the governments and people of the countries affected by the earthquakes and tsunami on 26 December.

The message, which was sent to the Foreign Secretary, reads:

I was deeply saddened to learn of the dreadful situation in Asia following this morning's earthquake. Please would you convey my concern and condolences to the governments of all the countries that have been affected, and my sympathies to the families of all those who have been killed, and to those who have been injured.

ELIZABETH R

Yes,i also have the same opinion,i think this time we should make a new thread about The Queen and Prince Philip.
I also have same feeling with The Queen.Not only i'm Asian,but i feel so sorry for the victims in Asia.It killed thousands of people.This morning i heard that 127.000 people were killed.Especially the children,you can see on TV,now they do not have anythings to eat,they lost their parents,no things with them now,....

Sydney Morning Herald:

A zealous young courtier moved aside the chair as the Queen arose at Christmas dinner - then looked on in horror as she promptly tried to sit down again, ending up on the floor.

Courtier Fraser Marlton-Thomas believed the Queen wanted to fetch something from the buffet, but the 78-year-old monarch only wanted to reach for something or talk to someone further down the long table.

Instead of landing back on the chair, she ended on the floor along with a couple of the royal corgis, who as usual were waiting for titbits, the Mail on Sunday newspaper reported.

It quoted servants at Sandringham House, the eastern English estate where the royals spend Christmas, as saying the Queen was unhurt, and the rest of the company broke into peals of laughter.

The shocked 25-year-old courtier helped the Queen to her feet and the sovereign ended up laughing as much as the others, court sources said.

Oh my goodness! If this is true, the poor man must have been mortified. Her majesty is also lucky she did not get hurt. At her age, no matter how fit you are your bones are definitely more fragile!

ElisaR 01-04-2005 03:10 PM

I am upset. She was very lucky indeed.

I read on Hola that the dogs broke her fall but they were ok too. I'm sure she fell on carpet too.

But that poor attendant OMG he must have been horrified! I would have died on the spot.

Do you all think that he will be put on another, lower ranking job?

HMQueenElizabethII 01-05-2005 06:33 AM

Yes,i'm really sad.It's so lucky for The Queen.
God save The Queen
God save our Gracious Queen

Oh, how horrible. I'm glad the Queen wasn't injured, but the poor courtier. I'm sure he will be reprimanded for his "actions", despite his good intentions. :( I can only imagine how embarrassed he would have felt. I have done things like that, although not involving people of such a status, and I still cringe at them.:o

Any Memorial Service for the Tsunami Victims in England?I remember that there was Memorial Service for the Bali Bombing Victims and for the 11/9 victims too in England.

I'd highly doubt she'd cry in public. The Queen is well-known for her stiff upper lip rule and didn't cry either at her sister's or her mother's funeral.

HMQueenElizabethII 01-06-2005 10:10 PM

Who tell you that she did not cry at her sister's funeral?There are some pics from Corbis.

Dennism 01-06-2005 10:27 PM

Grecka belongs to a family of veterinarians and apparently, the word went through the canine grapevine from the Corgis themselves and thatīs how Grecka knows?

grecka 01-07-2005 07:06 PM

I bearly have words. That was magnificent.

The Queen cried several times.

1) at a memorial service for 9/11, held in St. paul's cathedral on 13 September 2001

2) at Margaret's funeral

3) listening to a children's choir on Commonwealth Day, 11 March 2002

4) watching a veterans' parade on Summer 2002

5) at a remembrance service on November 2002 (I was uncertain about posting this picture, because I think it's not very respectful)

6) today I find this picture, about another remebrance service for 9/11,which took place on 29 november, where even Prince Philip seems to cry.

HMQueenElizabethII 01-10-2005 12:32 AM

Very sad pictures.
