That is the award usually presented on the first Sunday of the year but given that that Sunday was also New Year's Day it may always have been planned to be a week later. This is often her first engagement of the year.

The Queen has been reported as dying in the US tabloids too. And those tabloids say William and Catherine are about to become king and queen. As usual, they ignore Prince Charles and Camilla and have no clue as to British succession.

When you really think about it, those reports are stretching the truth. The Queen *is* dying. In fact, we all are. That process starts the day we are born.

HM The Queen (90 years young) looks great and healthy. And look at her smile in the pictures in the daily fail article in iceflower's post.

Video:
The Queen has arrived at a Women’s Institute event in the Norfolk village of West Newton today, as Her Majesty and Duke of Edinburgh continue their break at nearby Sandringham.

That is the same as Charles and Camilla's visit to the flood concert the previous Friday - again not in the CC.

It does show that the royals do do things that aren't officially recognised by HM when she approves the CC each day and in this past week there are at least two examples of that now.

The Queen makes a visit to the WI every year while at Sandringham but it is not an 'official' engagement as it doesn't make the CC.

I believe she is a member of her local WI branch and she does these visits as a ‘’private member’’ and not as an official royal duty.

I hope Prince Philip is okay since he's not at his planned engagement with The Queen today.

I hope so too Dman

I love the Queen's face as she exits her SUV & sees the shirtless performers (who must have been freezing - picture 6 in the gallery iceflower linked to). Probably nothing to do with the half naked men, but funny nonetheless.

She looks so pretty in bright colors!

Apparently it was a diary error and Prince Philip was never meant to attend this event, he's fine at Sandringham.

The day before she becomes the Sapphire Queen, our record breaking smiling monarch atended church and went on a short walkabout:

Quote:
The Queen seemed to be in especially high spirits today as she prepares to become the first monarch to reach a sapphire jubilee tomorrow.

Her Majesty seemed as spiritely as ever as she arrived a church service at St Peter and St Paul West Newton in Norfolk this morning.

The monarch, 90, could barely take the smile off her face as she greeted well-wishers awaiting her arrival.

Queen all smiles on walkabout ahead of Sapphire Jubilee - ITV News

Well-wishers were greeted with a smile as the Queen went on a walkabout on the eve of becoming the first British monarch to reach their Sapphire Jubilee.

The 90 year-old was handed bouquets from the waiting crowds after the church service at St Peter and St Paul in West Newton, Norfolk.

Monday will mark 65 years to the day since Elizabeth II came to the throne.
