The Queen, 91, horse riding near Windsor Castle | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The temperature might be dropping as the end of the year approaches.

But that has not stopped the Queen from venturing out to take in some of crisp winter air.

The monarch, 91, was spotted riding her beloved black pony in the grounds of Windsor Castle this morning.

Thank you Royal Norway for the info showing HM still out riding at her age. Just amazing that she still has this much energy at her age, I so admire her and hope to see HM doing this the same time next year and the year after. As long as HM is not galloping over fences and water I think she will be just fine riding......

Not sure if this belongs in this thread, but I am very interested in reading "My Husband and I: The Inside Story Of 70 Years Of Royal Marriage," by Ingrid Seward. Does anyone know how reliable this book is or if it is just a compilation of gossip? Thanks.

Weird title for a book that was authored by someone who is not the Queen. Just that alone would steer me away from it.

Not really - for decades it was a running joke that she would start many speeches with 'My husband and I' and that is all that is really alluding to.

Plus, as a rare bonus Granny's Chips brooch looks outstanding on that dark blue dress! You really get a feeling for how huge those stones are.

Just met a German lady who attended a Buckingham Palace garden party once some time ago.

She sat down with an empty chair beside her, and at some point the Queen sat in it, making small talk with those on either side.

This lady was impressed with how well the Queen spoke German with her. (Didn't get onto what they spoke about, but still after all these years, this was the impression left by the Queen on this lady - her excellent German language skills.)

Thanks eya!

Another year in a remarkably long and successful reign for HM the Queen. - Here's some of the many articles (note that there are factual errors):

Today marks 66 years since The Queen took to the throne – Royal Central
Quote:
The next nationwide celebrations for a jubilee occasion will be in 2022 when Her Majesty celebrates 70 years on the throne.

The Platinum Jubilee will take place in the same year as The Queen turns 96-years-old, and is expected to be celebrated on an even larger scale than the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
All the records Queen Elizabeth has broken – Royal Central
Quote:
Today, Queen Elizabeth will be entering her 67th year as monarch. A feat never achieved before by a British monarch. She will not be celebrating the occasion because the date also marks the anniversary of her father’s death.

With all those years under her belt, it is no wonder Her Majesty has broken an exceptional number of records. These are some of them:
Another year in a remarkably long reign for The Queen – ITV
Quote:
The Queen will mark it quietly and with sombre reflection but she will certainly pause to mark the passing of her father, George, 66 years ago.

For Queen Elizabeth II, the date of 6 February 1952 is not just the day her father died of lung cancer, but the moment her life changed completely and permanently.
The Queen marks 66th anniversary of her accession to the throne quietly at Sandringham – Express
Quote:
Gun salutes were being fired on the anniversary of her accession, including a 41-gun salute by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in London's Green Park and a 62-gun salute by the Honourable Artillery Company at the Tower of London.

As she does most years, the Queen is reflecting on the anniversary of her father's death in private at Sandringham in Norfolk, where she has been staying for her annual winter break.
Royal gun salute marks 66th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Today marks the 66th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne.

And gun salutes rang out across the UK's capital to celebrate the Royal's special day, with 41 volleys fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in London's Green Park at noon.

Dramatic pictures saw members of the King's Troop Horse Artillery make a grand entrance to the park, before firing the canons at midday and then departing.

Elizabeth is the longest-reigning sovereign in British history, becoming queen on February 6th 1952 aged just 25, on the death of her father King George VI, aged 56.

How young Queen Elizabeth learnt she was heir to the throne after swimming lesson - and the man who trained her to be a monarch – Mirror
Quote:
All it took was a moment for Princess Elizabeth’s life to change forever.

December 10, 1936 started like any other; the princess attended a swimming lesson with her friends, they learnt life saving techniques and, according to close friend Lady Myra Butter, she was “really quite good.”


It was when she returned home and was getting ready to write up her notes from her class that things changed.

Hearing cries of God Save the King from outside she went to investigate.

Asking a nearby footman what was going on he explained her uncle King Edward VIII had abdicated - her father was now King.
REVEALED: The heartwarming words the Queen Mother said to boost shy Queen's confidence – Express
Quote:
THE secret of The Queen’s success during a lifetime of public duty can be traced back to a simple piece of motherly advice. A close friend revealed how the Queen Mother told her young daughter to always walk through the very centre of a doorway.

Lady Penn, a former lady in waiting to the Queen Mother and friend of the Queen, said the tip helped transform the shy Princess Elizabeth into a beloved figure renowned for her calm confidence and poise.

She said: “The Queen Mother told the Queen when she was very young to be brave.

“I think the Queen probably felt walking into a room full of people was rather daunting.

“So she said to her ‘what you want to do, when you walk into a room, walk through the middle of the door’.

Not a happy day personally for the Queen of course, with memories of her beloved father, but an extraordinary milestone as monarch. Will she reach the Platinum anniversary? I feel sure she will. A long and glorious reign indeed.
