On a more cheerful note, an interview in today's Daily Telegraph with the Queen's cousin and lifelong friend, Margaret Rhodes.

David Blunkett was at a dinner with the Queen when she asked him if he'd like her to cut up his meat for him. he thanked her but declined, to which she asked again saying that she really didn't mind, after a second grateful decline she said to him that it was fine as she was used to doing it for the corgi's.

Watched a bit of Trooping of the colour today as had to go out! From what I saw, it looked fantastic, and the DoE and The Queen both looked wonderful.

Agreed.  The Duke is marvellous for a 91 year old.  He increasingly shares a resemblance with his mother.  The picture of him seated in the carriage brought to mind a photo of Princess Andrew in a dressing gown taken at Buckingham Palace or the Edward VII hospital - canīt remember which...
