John Howard's respect for HM is clearly equal to her very deep respect for him. A real honour for Mr Howard and very well deserved. He's a man for whom I have a great deal of admiration. I had...

I saw a documentary once where the Queen told a guest at a reception she was at that her diary entries are actually very short. She made a gesture with her hand of the size of the entry and it...

I agree. No doubt Crawfie had nothing but good intentions (along with monetary ones) when she wrote the book.

I think the confidentiality agreements are pretty watertight, but all any staff...

I find it sad that the Queen and Margaret weren't given the opportunity to go to school. I know it would probably have been an exclusive fee paying school, but I get the feeling that the princesses...

According to the Evening Standard, Prince Philip's mobile phone started ringing while he was at today's engagements. Apparently the Queen shot him a look that suggested she was not amused.

I thought when we saw the first unpainted version that they were making HM too wrinkly, and the Daily Mail seems to agree with me (not sure if I should be proud of that fact or not).

Philip is a true marvel. My grandfather is 92 and he's essentially housebound and can only walk very short distances with a zimmer frame. Philip has been blessed with excellent genes, and of course...

A very happy (belated) birthday, Baroness! :flowers: That certainly sounds like an interesting bit of royal kitsch. Did you take a picture of it?

I'm sure HM got a warm reception from the residents of Windsor, considering they're neighbours of her's. I'm sure the Queen enjoyed having her engagement be so close to home.

The Queen seemed to enjoy meeting the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls. I don't blame her ;).

Amazing to think that HM opened the original Cutty Sark 55 years ago. Now here she is doing it all again. I have to say, though, I've not heard good things about the renovation.

Truly awful...

The projections of the childrens' self-portraits onto BP was a wonderful idea, and a tribute to HM by the PoW whose charity organised it all.

I think the projections were being held over at least...

The Olympic Park will be called the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park after the games. I think that's pretty substantial.

Truly wonderful pictures. The image of the Queen putting the George IV State Diadem on by herself is just magic.

I don't see one on her other leg, but even if there is that's obviously a compression stocking. You can tell because it's very thick and looks as if it's tight.

We haven't seen her wear anything...

I remember when Kate's yellow dress blew up in Canada people said, "the Queen would never let that happen!". Turns out they were wrong.
