While the Queen is in residence at Windsor, she attends church services at St. George's Chapel. Are services open to the public when she is there?

The Queen is looking extremely well, and is still riding!

I rather hoped that the Cambridge baby would be born on the Queen's birthday, but nothing is happening at present.

Ah well.

I was too, Ann. I'm really hoping the new baby will be a princess with Elizabeth as one of her names.

I think it's high time we had a Prince Philip or Princess Elizabeth among the Queen's great-grandchildren.

Only a few more months before Queen Elizabeth II breaks Victoria's record as Britain's longest serving Monarch.

I've got an entry in my calendar for that special day. She is expected to pass that record on Sept. 9, 2015, at around 5:30 p.m., local time in Britain. Victoria’s reign lasted 23,226 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes.

Thanks, I've noted the date in my diary! I also agree that it is a great pity that there is no Prince Philip or Princess Elizabeth among the Queen's great-grandchildren

We can but hope! Apart from their significance for the Royal Family I think they are nice names.

If they have a girl, they could name her Philipa, named after both Prince Philip and Kate's sister.

There is also Edward III's Queen, Philippa of Hainault.

The Slavic connection:
Philippa of Lancaster, daughter of Henry IV, married Duke Bogislav of Pomerania-Stolp, better known as Erik of Pomerania, King of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The first ever bride reported to have been married in a white dress.

A contemporary Princes Filippa was Filippa of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn, a German aristocrat and photographer who died in car crash on the M5 near Bristol 21 year old in 2001 after 111 days of marriage to an Italian count and whose posthumous diary became a bestseller in Germany.

Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.
