I'm done :-) Long Live the Queen!

GD Ella, would you happen to have a year for the top picture of Elizabeth you posted...and if there is anymore information to share on it?
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

I don't have a year for it. :(  I found it on pinterest. There was no further info given on it.

Referring to the photo that Grandduchessella posted on pg. 1...

My goodness, HM looks so incredibly young in that photo. However, I must say, the ultra vibrant color of her orange frock is a bit shocking. I'm sure it was hugely fashionable back in the day. Speaking of fashion, I'll never understand it!  :)

It is a bright color, isn't it! That's what drew my attention to it on pinterest.

Here's a photo--does anyone remember what it was from? I thought the Jubilee but didn't see Kate or Mike Tindall even though other spouses were there. Autumn Philips is there though so sometime since her wedding to Peter but before William married Kate.

I remember this photo! It was taken at Clarence House in 2002 on the occasion of HM celebrating her Golden Jubilee. Prince Charles hosted a dinner for his mama, the Queen, and invited the rest of the clan. It's a wonderful photo and lovely to see again.

Hmmm, I'm editing this post because now I think I may be incorrect. Camilla is in the photo and the boys (William and Harry) look way too old for this to have been taken back in 2002. My apologies.

Peter didn't marry Autumn Kelly until 2008 though. Isn't that her between Princess Anne and Zara?

Yes. I am totally wrong. But, I do remember this photo. I will be back in a while to do some searching and will post my findings if someone doesn't beat me to it!

Found it! As printed in The Sun on November 17, 2007:

"THE Queen and Duke of Edinburgh pose with their family as they kick off their diamond wedding celebrations last night.

This snap was taken at a bash thrown by Prince Charles at Clarence House for 25 Royals — plus Peter Phillips’ fiancee Autumn Kelly.

They feasted on lobster mousse, Sandringham partridge and ice-cream cake with Highgrove berries.

The flowers on the table were white cattleya orchids — the same as on the Queen’s bouquet on November 20, 1947.

Today the Queen and Duke will attend a thanksgiving service at Westminster Abbey.

Back row: Daniel Chatto, Lady Sarah Chatto, Prince Michael of Kent, Princess Michael of Kent, Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, Viscount Linley, Viscountess Linley.

Middle row: Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence, Peter Phillips, Princess Royal, Autumn Kelly, Zara Phillips, Princess Beatrice, Duke of York, Princess Eugenie, Earl of Wessex, Duchess of Gloucester, Countess of Wessex, Duke of Gloucester.

Front row: Prince William, Prince of Wales, Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry"

Thanks, RW! I had thought it was in the last few years but couldn't place the event. For some reason, I guess because I can't add, I didn't think of their 60th wedding anniversary.

A beautiful photo of the new Queen

They were apparently amongst the first group of photos taken after the death of George VI but I don't think they were released. They came to light not too long ago when the grandson of the photographer (in the photo with Anne and Charles) came across them.

Interesting to see the relative heights. The Duke of Kent is much taller than I thought he was, and Princess Alexandra shorter.
