Invitations are issued in The Queen's name but the reality is that it is the government who actually issues the invitation.

The Queen can't decide for herself who to invite or where to go - she...

If the British government tell HM to host Trump she will comply as that is what she has to do.

She has hosted some pretty awful dictators over the years at the insistence of the British...

The Queen has never rushed to the scene of any such event. In fact she has been criticised in the past for not attending the scene of such events at any time. Her staff are very efficient now at...

That is the same as Charles and Camilla's visit to the flood concert the previous Friday - again not in the CC.

It does show that the royals do do things that aren't officially recognised by HM...

That is the award usually presented on the first Sunday of the year but given that that Sunday was also New Year's Day it may always have been planned to be a week later. This is often her first...

He isn't 96 yet though - don't age him too soon. He will be 96 on the 10th June so still 5 months until he reaches that mark but he did look like a very old and frail man and not the wonderfully...

This is the sort of evidence I have been waiting to see. No doubt it will appear in the CC in the next month or so (they are up to date to the 1st January by the way so who knows???)

She has been wearing a bandage over a bruise etc on that leg since the summer. Maybe a very slow healing injury - not uncommon in the very old.

My parents both retired in their 50s and were busier than ever after that - didn't know how they ever fitted in their working time.

Whether it is an honorific or not is not relevant.


This is an award for AUSTRALIANS and he is a FOREIGNER - it is that simple.

Why?

What has he done FOR AUSTRALIA? Nothing that I can think of other than walk a few steps behind his wife for over 60 years.

This is not a good, or sensible, decision by the PM. Even...
