Has anyone heard how Prince Philip is progressing in his convalescence after the hip operation?

They bark at strangers as well, apparently! I can remember Cherie Blair not being a fan. The Queen had more dogs in those days. Apparently Mrs Blair didn't get bitten (I was going to write something...

This winter has probably been shocking for the elderly in so many places. If he's got a touch of bronchitis or something like that Prince Philip will be better off indoors.

Isn't it because the Queen isn't considered Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland? This is because of course when Queen Elizabeth I was on the throne of England Scotland was a separate kingdom.

Let's hope it's swifter and less bumpy than in 1842! Albert, who had a delicate stomach, suffered from motion sickness on the train and was unsettled at the speed of it--44 miles an hour! He...

Thank goodness the Queen is feeling well enough now to attend church service. It's good to hear!

I suppose the Queen wasn't out and about enough to present any kind of academic award at the big house to Norfolk schoolchildren, as she did last year. I believe last year on the Sunday after...

Maybe the two of them, and the remaining dorgi, will be driven to Sandringham rather than worry about a train journey. I hope the Queen and Prince Philip get better soon and can have their usual...

Yes, they're both looking very spry and dapper. The Queen appears to be a bit frail, but very sparkling and lovely. There's no-one like her really.

Yes, that's been there for a very long time now, perhaps the result of a knock. I hope it's not developing into an ulcer. The Queen should get some fresh air and sunshine on it.

I'm just wondering whether it was an occasion connected with the Queen's 90th birthday and its celebration. These Lord Chamberlains are all representatives of monarchies (obviously) and might have...

Wild animals are no respecter of persons, even Royal persons, as we know. However, I'm sure there would be meatier morsels around than the Queen and Prince Philip! It sounds like a lovely engagement,...

It's very nice that this will occur just after the Queen's birthday. I'm sure she and Obama will enjoy meeting again. She has met every US President since Eisenhower, I believe.

It's good that the Queen continues to wear these bright colours in her outfits into late autumn and winter. I think she looks fabulous in her hot pink.

As John Key is a monarchist and they have met several times before I'm sure the Queen feels very comfortable chatting to him.

And very lovely and welcoming she looks! This isn't a criticism but I do wonder why the handbag is ever-present, even when the Queen is at 'home' at BP. Hankie, glasses, cough drops inside, perhaps?

I don't think so. I don't think it's that type of event. It is very important IMO for the younger royals to show an interest in Commonwealth programmes like this one.

Yes indeed, though she restricts herself to riding a quiet pony these days instead of a horse, and the pace has probably slowed to a slow trot rather than a swift canter! The Queen's done very well...
