There is as silence into which
the world cannot intrude.
There is an ancient peace
you carry in your heart
and have not lost.

It took years for us to find our own pace,
to create a silence in which to hear only
the sound of our own footsteps and not feel
that the silence was a lonely emptiness.

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving Human soul on another.

I don't know , but isn't it the same for all pictures posted here. none of the pics of the royals is taken by fans, so i don't think it's a problem

How is that? I am far from an authority on the subject have only a basic knowledge of copyright (more patents, ie. TRIPS), but it is my understanding that the same laws apply to a piece of copyrighted material regardless of whether it is in an electronic or more traditional (book) format. Of course, these laws vary from country to country, which is why there is an international framework to which the majority of trading economies are signatories.

Perhaps the difference is enforcement, which would explain why sites such as corbis sign their name across their images. This way they receive credit and a little publicity when their copyrighted images show up on sites like these... :innocent:

If I ever find the answer I will let you know before they cart all of us off to jail. ;)

A book was featured in last week's edition of the New Idea, about Prince Philip and his wit. There were extracts of the book, which I have taken photos of for the forum
Information on the book:
Title: The Duke of Hazard: The Wit & Wisdom of Prince Philip
Author: Phil Darniper & Ashley Walton (New Idea writers, according to the magazine)
Publisher: Guild Publishing

*Some of the extracts you can't read, because of the flash from my camera.

"The Women of Windsor" by Catherine Whitney

I just got back from my local Barnes & Noble & I found a new book. Its called The Women of Windsor by Catherine Whitney. According the the B&N website it came out in April of '06. The book is about The Queen Mum, The Queen, Princess Margaret & Princess Anne. Has anyone read it or heard about this book? If you have read it, what are your thoughts about it.

It sounded a bit interesting, at first. Mostly because of Princess Margaret and Princess Anne, about whom I haven't read all that many biographies...

but then I found this quote on the Barnes and Noble page about the book:
Whitney's treatment of "the women of Windsor" (the queen mother, the queen, Princess Margaret, and Princess Anne) opens, oddly enough, with a prolog not about any of them but instead criticizing the late Princess of Wales ("Drama Queen") and Prince Charles ("the queen's biggest headache"). Whitney (The Calling: A Year in the Life of an Order of Nuns) then goes over familiar ground in this superficial work-the abdication of Edward VIII, the marriage of Elizabeth and Philip, Princess Margaret's affair with Peter Townsend, the attempted kidnapping of Princess Anne, etc., unable to go into any depth owing to the amount of ground she must cover in well under 300 pages.

I'll probably see about getting it, but the review didn't make it sound overly tempting.
I've read it, and it does skip around a bit, and I wouldn't recommend it to any Diana fanatics, but it's a quick summer read. She's very sympathetic towards both the Queen Mum and Princess Margaret.
Are there any good pictures in the book? It sounds interesting enough for a summer read. I'll have to go check it out at my local Barnes and Nobles. Thanks for telling us Jennifer! :)
Not really, no. If you have other books on the Windsors, you've seen these pictures, and they're all in black and white, too.
I read this book and I was not impressed. Unfortunately, she gets some of her dates wrong. I think Harry's birthday is one of them and there were a couple of others.

I did not like the style that it was written in. Almost like an Ingrid Seward with bated breath and all that. For example, supposedly when the Queen Mother died, Princess Anne came to be with the Queen and then later the Queen was happy she was there. And the Queen is thinking about how proud she is of her, blah, blah. It was like she was putting thoughts in her head and I thought it was ridiculous.

I think the idea of the book is good and I was looking forward to it. However, if you know much about the family, there is nothing really new. Basically, its a new opportunity to slam Diana!!!:ohmy::rolleyes:
