HM The Queen Wardrope and Hats

Does anyone know what is going to become of HM The Queen's hats, handbags and clothes in general?

I had hoped that they would put together one of the most treasured ones as a exhibition. Do you think there is an apatite for such a thing. She must have had quite a collection of hats and such - what becomes of them.

I guess that not all of her clothes, hats etc. will be kept but mainly those worn for special occasions like Jubilee's Weddings important State Visits etc. Otherwise the Archives would be bursting

I'm sure the iconic ones will appear at future exhibitions of the late Queen!

I would presume, as prosaic it may sound, that the umbrellas could be reused by Queen Camilla.

As for upcoming possible exhibitions I would wish that, if they are goind to create one, they last longer than some weeks to give people from abroad the possibility to attend them as well.

Can't they leave her in peace ? She gave her long life to UK, wasn't it right she keeps her death and the details of it, secret ?

I agree.

And I really hope it's not true. Bone marrow cancer is said to be incredibly painful.

RIP to HMQ.

Here is the extract from the upcoming biography "Elizabeth, An Intimate Portrait" by Gyles Brandreth, from which the Mirror article is citing.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...H-reveals.html

His exact words are: "I had heard that the Queen had a form of myeloma — bone marrow cancer — which would explain her tiredness and weight loss and those ‘mobility issues’ we were often told about during the last year or so of her life."

Mr. Brandreth is not the first to have "heard" this (I remember a journalist being castigated on social media for saying the same), and it would be consistent with many people on this forum saying that Queen Elizabeth II appeared, in the speeches and actions in the last year of her life, to be setting affairs in order and preparing the nation for the transition to the next reign. But if true, then the court physician will have lied on the death certificate (if my understanding is correct, the designation of "old age" is only permitted in cases when there is no more specifically identifiable cause of death).

An extract from the upcoming biography "Elizabeth, An Intimate Portrait" by Gyles Brandreth:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...H-reveals.html

I found this section of the extract interesting:

Quote:
And it was thanks to Bond that she famously made a truly dramatic entrance when the 2012 Olympics were staged in London, in a filmed sketch with Daniel Craig.

Craig was seen running up the red-carpeted stairs at Buckingham Palace, meeting two of the royal corgis, being greeted by the Queen's page and ushered into the royal presence.

It was the Queen's own idea to keep Bond waiting a moment as she signed off a letter, before turning around to say: 'Good evening, Mr Bond.'

Her line delivered, the Queen, accompanied by Bond and her page and her corgis, walked with purpose to the waiting helicopter that transported her past the statue of Winston Churchill in Parliament Square (Churchill looked up and gave Her Majesty a wave — she especially liked that touch), along the course of the river Thames, to the Olympic Park in East London.

'She was a natural,' said Daniel Craig. 'I was definitely more nervous than she was.'

Lord Janvrin, the Queen's former private secretary, told me he was sure the Queen wouldn't have done the stunt during the Queen Mother's lifetime. 'Why?' I asked him.

'Simply because she would have felt her mother wouldn't have approved — that it would have been a bit undignified.

'The Queen became less inhibited in several ways after her mother's death [in 2002], less constrained, more relaxed.'

I believe Lady Colin Campbell was among the first to say that it was bone marrow cancer that HM had died from. She stated that on her You Tube Channel. How she, or anyone else apart from the Queen’s doctors could possibly know, she didn’t explain.

A potential lie was the first thing that occurred to me as well. However, the Duke of Edinburgh was publicly hospitalized and received surgery for heart issues in the months before he died, and the cause of death was still determined to be "old age" there, as well.

It’s possible to die “with” something without dying “of” that thing. I would image a great many people die of old age with conditions that would fill a textbook of medicine,

But as Tatiana Maria said, you are not legally allowed to list "old age" as the cause of death (it has its own very specific definition) when there is some greater or clearer underlying cause that would be responsible.

It's a bit more problematic than George VI, whose coronary thrombosis was caused by metastatic lung cancer...

Yes, I do remember seeing Lady CC make that remark on the evening of the death of the queen.

I also wondered then why she spoke with such authority.

The cause of death was officially "old age". But, in any case, that is a private matter and the family's privacy, as well as the confidentiality of the Queen's medical record, should be respected.

They should let her medical conditions kept private. She was in her 90s and frail of health and that's it. Lady C C is like the version of USAs tabloid press and TV gossip mongers Perez Hilton or Wendy Williams.

There have been a lot of rumours over the last year or so but I wouldn't necessarily trust The Mirror as a source and I would definitely take Lady Colin Campbell with a ginormous grain of salt. She may have *some* sources but I doubt she has the deep, impeccable sources that she's always apparently claiming. At least not for *everything* royal.

It is possible that the person who signed the death certificate was being.....deliberately discreet, we have no way of knowing but "HM has cancer" became "fact" to many long before she died when they certainly had no way of knowing.

Strange to say, had HM QEII been suffering from terminal cancer her death would not have come as such a shock to her family because they would have all had the time to spend time with her prior to her death. The impression I got was that while she was frail, they were not expecting her to die within days.

I may be wrong but I am pretty sure that had her death been immenent we would have seen a constant flow of family and friends calling on her or supporting her immediate family. None of that was seen and it was so sudden that Andrew, Edward, William, Harry all missed a final farewell, for all the haste to get there.

I mean, who entertains an ingoing and outgoing PM when they are so sick and in pain from cancer so extreme they are going to die within two days This is just sick headline grabbing to sell a book. What a pack of vultrures . . .
