I agree! I wouldn't be surprised if they'll end up talking (well, listening to her) about alot of past events during this visit. Usually around things like this one tend to get more philisophical and how nice for her to share that with them :)

Elizabeth became Queen when I was just a few months old.
I fully appreciate the historic significance of this milestone in her reign - and in our lives.
I'm grateful to live in a country where, as the old Book of Common Prayer has it, "that under her we may be godly and quietly governed."
God bless Her Majesty.

Yes, it's the Queen Mother, but not as a bride - just an oval shaped photo, which from a distance looks like she is wearing a veil!

I agree. When I looked at the photo initially, it did look like a bride, therefore the wedding pictures for the Queen Mother do not match but when I enlarged the photo it isn't a wedding photo, therefore it does look like the Queen Mother

This photograph of The Queen by the renowned British photographer Mary McCartney has been released to mark the moment Her Majesty becomes the longest reigning British Monarch later today.

The photograph was taken at Buckingham Palace in July in The Queen's private audience room. Her Majesty is seated at her desk, with one of her official red boxes.

Yes, I believe it was Starkey, thank you!
I was referring to the quote that said Elizabeth hasn't done anything "special" for the nation. If keeping up the monarchy with steadfastness and dignity is not special, then I don't know what "special" means then...

The Queen's speech at the Borders Railway in Scotland

Quote:
First Minister, Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Duke of Edinburgh and I are delighted to be back in the Borders today and, especially, to have arrived … by train! It has been wonderful to witness the excitement which the return of the railway has brought here. The Borders Railway brings so much promise for sharing and invigorating this most beautiful countryside as a place to work, live and enjoy.

Prince Philip and I are very grateful for the warmth of your welcome on this occasion. Many including you, First Minister, have also kindly noted another significance attaching to today, although it is not one to which I have ever aspired. Inevitably, a long life can pass by many milestones; my own is no exception. But I thank you all, and the many others at home and overseas, for your touching messages of great kindness.

So now to the business in hand. It is my very happy duty to declare the Borders Railway open.

Looks like the Queen Mum to me also. She was quite attractive as a young woman.

. David Starkey is an academic and has written numerous books on the Monarchy.

First I want to congratulate The Queen with this milestone, and thank her for being our Queen. As a commentator said it ''she is second to none''. My brother so her today, and he said she looked very well.

Touched Queen keeps calm, carries on | The Times

Quote:
In a perfect demonstration of the wartime motto “Keep Calm and Carry On”, the Queen showed barely a flicker of recognition that today was the day she became Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

As the historic moment neared – estimated to be at about 5.30pm – the monarch was conducting business as usual, interrupting her summer stay at her private home of Balmoral to perform public duties opening the new Borders Railway.

She made only passing reference to the “significance” of the day in her scripted speech, scrupulously thanking everyone at home and overseas for their good wishes as she spoke at Tweedbank station.
