im sorry , but the queen's hat is awful !she looks clorful today ;i think if she change the yellow hat with a green or brown hat , would be beter !

I agree -- she wore it to church at Sandringham during the Christmas holidays, and it doesn't look any better out on the town. :eek: I think the yellow/mossy green combo is the real issue. No good.
Ooo does that mean she'll be attending.
My money's on that horse :flowers:
:previous: Yes, she is attending.:flowers:

It has been confirmed:
TURF TALK: Ray Burroughs marks your card at Cheltenham (From Swindon Advertiser)

Cheltenham boss Edward Gillespie ... also announced that on Gold Cup Friday (March 13), the Queen will be in attendance to see her horse Barber Shop run in the headline race.

Great to see her there but unless there is a major upset the horse does not stand a chance. Favourites for the most prestiguous cup in jump racing - after the Grand National - are the Paul Nicholls' trained trio Kauto Star (Champion 2007, Runner-up 2008), Denman (Champion 2008) and Neptune Collonges (3rd 2008) - what makes Barber Shop a good bet, though. After a disappointing appearance by Denman a few weeks ago Kauto Star is the one to beat but a lot will be depending on the weather.

Even though HM might not expect Barber Shop to win it will be a great fun day for her, she loves racing and Cheltenham is the Olympics for jump racing, doesn't get any better than this. It will be a good warm-up for her in regards to her upcoming beloved Epsom Derby on the flat in early June.

Lewis Hamilton receives MBE
Quotes from the above Telegraph link...

The 24-year-old racing star described collecting his MBE from the Queen as "one of the most overwhelming experiences" of his life.
"I was so nervous to meet her. It was one of the most overwhelming experiences I've ever had. I'm kind of lost for words," he said.
"I don't think you realise until you're standing in front of her how special it is."

How great that he is still so physically able to enjoy his sports. He certainly looks like he's having a fine time in this picture. Thanks, Iceflower for all of the photos you post!
