Everytime I see Her Majesty smiling there is one song in my ears: Stevie Wonder's "Isn't she lovely?"

She has a very wonderful smile.

Telegraph article: Horse-barge parade! Queen is all smiles as she opens Scottish canal alongside stunning 30m-high Kelpies sculptures
Quote:
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have led a small flotilla along a new canal as they visited one of Scotland's most popular attractions.

The royal couple completed the last stretch of their journey to the Kelpies sculptures in Falkirk by barge - and formally opened the new canal section in the process.

Named after the monarch, the Queen Elizabeth II Canal forms the eastern gateway to the Forth and Clyde Canal and flows right up to the acclaimed horse-head sculptures.

Telegraph article: The Queen opens a new Highland Spring factory
Quote:
The Queen has officially opened a new factory building for the UK's top producer of bottled water.

She was presented with a specially-labelled bottle of Highland Spring water she helped make after pressing the button to start the new production line.

The commemorative bottles have a crown on the thistle logo and the slogan "Specially selected for Her Majesty the Queen".
Quote:
Group operations director Bryan McCluskey showed the Queen around the factory and explained the bottling process, describing the visit as an "enormous honour".

He said: "Having the longest-reigning monarch coming to see the fastest bottling line in the UK was amazing. She was really interested and could quote some of the statistics she had heard.

"She was very impressed with the new bottle design and we presented one of the new bottles to her which she had effectively made."

He's a pro on working the crowds. I would suggest we all do this whenever we're at parties and receptions.

There's been a lot of angry comments regarding the name of the canal. It should just have been the Queen Elizabeth Canal and many in Scotland are angry that it's been called Elizabeth II.
