You hit the nail on the head Goldberry! After looking at the recent pictures of HM at the Gold Service Scholarship event, I was drawn to look further down the page with many other recent pictures of The Queen and then some older shots (like her wedding photo).

If we were able to actually find someone that lived under a rock or something and had absolutely no clue who Queen Elizabeth II is, I would wager that if asked what they think her age to be, it wouldn't be anywhere near the 90 year mark. Personally I think its the happiness that shines through her facial expressions when she smiles that keeps her forever young. Twinkling eyes with laughter and smiles that light up a room will do that.

BTW: Welcome to TRF and the wide, wild world of anything royal!

A new railway line which will run under London is to be named after the Queen.

Crossrail, which will link parts of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire to Essex, will be known as the Elizabeth line once it opens through the centre of the capital in December 2018.

The announcement was made by London Mayor Boris Johnson as the Queen visited the under-construction Bond Street station.

Since George is mad for vehicles of all kinds, I wonder when he will get to ride great granny's train line? And every time I see a photo of a member of the Family with the Mayor, I wonder if they go home and discuss his hair. Because I would.

Royal dressmaker is given the ultimate compliment in ceremony at Buckingham Palace

The Queen will invest many hundreds of people with honours this year, but only one of them will be able to say they designed the dress she wore to give them their award.

Stewart Parvin, the Queen's dressmaker for the past nine years, has been rewarded for his loyal service by being made a member of the Royal Victorian Order in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Her Majesty paid him the ultimate compliment by choosing a purple patterned day dress by Mr Parvin for the occasion.

Mr Parvin, who works with the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly to create some of Her Majesty's most memorable outfits, said his job was "very easy" because the Queen looks "wonderful" in any outfit.

The RVO is given by the Queen to people who have served her or the monarchy in a personal way. It is bestowed independently of 10 Downing Street.

Mr Parvin said after the investiture ceremony: "I'm hugely humbled and very grateful and very proud to receive it."

Speaking about creating outfits for the Queen, he added: "Designing for someone who looks so wonderful in [any] clothes is very easy."

Video: Queen meets children who will benefit from £22m windfall from her Jubilee fund - Telegraph

The Queen visits Lister Community School in Newham to discover more about how The Queen's Trust is supporting the work of charities in schools

When the Prince of Wales launched the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Appeal in 1977, no-one thought to put a time limit on how long the fund would continue.

After almost 40 years and two more jubilees, The Queen’s Trust, as it is now known, is still going strong, and still has £22 million in the bank.

Now, however, its trustees have decided the time has finally come to spend what is left, to ensure the funds are disbursed during the Queen’s reign and she can see how good causes have benefited.

Over the next three years, ten youth charities will receive a combined £22 million windfall, meaning the fund will have paid out more than £100 million during its lifetime.

Today the Queen was given a flavour of what the money will be used for when she met representatives of some of the ten charities chosen to benefit when she visited a school in east London.

Students at Lister Community School in Plaistow welcomed the Queen as she was given an update about the work of organisations that are benefiting from the Trust.

Quote:
It's just under a month until the Queen reaches her 90th birthday and yet she seemed as sprightly as ever as she arrived at her engagement today.

The monarch looked regal in a purple ensemble paired with a matching hat and eye-catching red feathers as she attended the Queen's Trust Event at the Lister Community School in London.

She was greeted by veteran broadcaster Sir Trevor McDonald, a trustee of the Queen's Trust, who arrived to speak about his involvement with the organisation.

The Queen visited Lister Community School today to discover more about how The Queen's Trust is supporting the work of various charities in schools. The Queen's Trust aims to make transformational grants to youth charities, enabling them to grow and develop, and so help more young people succeed. Its emphasis is on education and personal development in and out of school, in low-income communities in the UK.
