What a nice blast from the past of a young Queen doing what she is still doing today. Its amazing to realize that photos from then always were black and white.

Nice to see that so many people were out to see our beloved Queen, but I don't understand why they bothered, because they hardly get to see her anyway.

Had it not been for her age and security, then she could have used the queenmobile (as she used to do), but it's nice that she vent on a small walkabout (very rare nowadays) to receive some flowers.

Queen hands out Maundy coins in Leicester - BBC News

Article from the Telegraph:
Smiling Queen charms Maundy Money recipients at Leicester Cathedral
Quote:
The Queen has marked Maundy Thursday by handing out Maundy Money - a tradition dating back to the 13th century.

Accompanied by the Duke Of Edinburgh, she was in high spirits as she distributed coins to 91 men and 91 women at Leicester Cathedral.

Hundreds of well-wishers lined the route from Leicester station to the cathedral - where the last Plantagenet king, Richard III, is buried - in a bid to catch a glimpse of the royal visitors.

No matter where HM goes year after year and decade after decade, it must still really warm her hearts to see that so many people come out to see her regardless of security precautions and limited viewing.

Not many people can say that happens to them.

I agree! And she has said on several occasions that she is overwhelmed by the support and kindness she receives.

Here's a video of HM and Philip leaving Leicester by helicopter:

It's amazing to see the love and support the queen garners

Must admit, if not for royals I'd not know about Maundy Thursday. I grew up in catholic school, and I attend church (Ash Wednesday, good Friday and Easter Sunday I attend all) but some how this one I don't remember being told.

What a marvellous example of duty and public service the Queen and Prince Philip are! I'm sure the coins she distributes each year are treasured by the people who receive them, and it's great to see thousands of people came out to greet the royal couple. The Queen seems to be energised and in especially fine spirits lately. The enforced rest over the Christmas period seems to have done her the world of good.

I grew up Catholic also and we always referred to it as Holy Thursday. We always went to Mass because it is the day the Last Supper is celebrated. Then again, my parents were very devout Catholics and we lived 5 houses away from the church doors so if something was happening at church, we were there.

Its amazing that at almost 91 years old (and Philip pushing 96), this wonderful couple are still going so strong. I think a lot of it lies in the fact that they actually love what they're doing. Its the big difference between having a career or a position and having a calling.

Although, it's down to dedication to duty and service, I agree, they love what they do. I love watching them on official engagements. The Queen and Prince Philip do it with such ease, elegance and grace. I guess that comes with years of practice.

May explain it. My Catholic school w actually celebrated Passover. We would have a Passover lunch. The last supper was Jesus celebrating Passover after all. I guess slipped my tired mind that was the same day. We just never used the term.

I doubt that they 'love what they' do much as accept it as their duty.

The Queen has been reported as saying she would like nothing more than to have been the wife of a gentleman farmer and live in the countryside all her life.

Philip would have preferred to remain in the navy and serve there for decades.

Accepting of duty includes making themselves look interested - but every so often we do see HM clearly bored with what she is doing or where she is. However she is a professional and is able to put up a good front for hours at a time as that is her duty.

It has also been reported several times that she enjoys being the Queen.

I've deleted and edited a number of off-topic posts about the Cambridges and Prince Charles. As a reminder, this thread isn't about whether the royals enjoy their duties, or how they behave at engagements. If you wish to discuss those things, please take it to the appropriate thread.
