Happy Birthday, your Majesty!!! Many, many happy returns on this day. What a happy day indeed!

For anyone in or around Windsor, Tower Bridge, Hyde Park...did you hear the gun salutes?

It was quite a treat seeing for the very first time the monarch's private entrance to Buckingham Palace in "The Queen at 90." The foyer is painted the same color as her reception room where she accepts diplomate's credentials. It is rather plain with only a few pieces of furniture, but it is illuminated with many windows and is very bright. I was able to see the inside of the elevator as the Queen stepped out as well. Thrilled!!!

Queen_Missy...your collages are absolutely fabulous! Thank you for sharing.

It has been reported that Kate has worn the Cambridge Lover's Knott Tiara to the Queen's annual Diplomatic Reception. This is very exciting news for those of us who have been waiting to see that lovely tiara once again. Marvelous!

Big birthday celebrations for HM will happen in May 2016 at Windsor Home Park over four consecutive nights. The Queen will attend the final night and it will be broadcast on ITV.

Now this is an interesting picture:

Eddie's two loves...Mary of Teck (1867-1953), Princess of Wales, with the Duchesse d'Aosta (née Princess Hélène of Orléans), 1908. From Queen Alexandra's Christmas Gift Book, Photographs from My Camera, by Queen Alexandra, published by The Daily Telegraph (London, 1908).

If HM had bestowed her that honor, she would have worn it at the banquet last night.

Kate and William looked fantastic at the state banquet tonight. Kate was wearing the papyrus tiara; however, she was not wearing the Family Order. Unfortunate. I would think by now, producing and heir and a "spare," that she would have been awarded that honor.

Does anyone know when the Ghillies Ball takes place at Balmoral?

I was just wondering if it is towards the end of HM's stay at Balmoral. If so, perhaps it's taking place this weekend. It would be a wonderful thing to witness! 

I found this while searching the brought me back to this site:

Scroll down just a bit and you will see a group shot, which includes Princess Victoria and Prince Phillip as a boy.
