Here is an interesting picture showing the difference between the way that Prince Phillip and the Queen view the same dance performance.

Fun pic, Const. In his dreams, the old lech.  As for HM, I think she has seen so many of this sort of thing, she  has taken it the art of blanking it out with her eyes open !
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Thanks for that Alexander,wonderfull pic of a remarkeble Lady.

To the "two other boys"  around.Apparently HM genuinely enjoys herself and takes evrything in so she can give a brilliant performance of what she saw
once at home again.HM is a brilliant impersonator and all odd situations are genuinely liked,and even welcomed,as they take her out of the ordinary into a more naughty state of mind sort of Realm.She's a hilarious impersonator I have heard.Would love to see / hear her do that,and the Duke commenting,they beat a comedy together,I bet! ;D

Truly,how many octaginarians we know do a 9 day tour full of official engagements and still act as they do?
HM and her Duke are really examplary in the true sense of the word.Deep respect for both is fitting.

Quite right Lucien! Amazing dedication & hard work! If only these useless ministers would follow suit (the same ones that wish to cut the monarchy) and yet fiddle there own expenses!!

This is from an interesting article in the Daily Telegraph regarding Canada:

A Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey of 1,000 Canadians found that 45 per cent of respondents didn't know that the Royal couple were coming and 44 per cent said they would support a referendum on cutting ties to the monarchy.
Tom Freda, director of Citizens for a Canadian Republic, told Canadian Press that the poll showed Canadians were apathetic about the Queen.
"Most Canadians just don't care about the monarchy," he said.
"It doesn't make sense in the 21st century for a country of Canada's stature to share its head of state with another country.
"It's a symbol of Canada's subservience. It's a symbol of Canada's lack of ability to stand alone in the world as an independent nation."
During her 22nd official tour of Canada, the queen will preside over a parade of naval warships in Nova Scotia. The Canadian vessels still bear the initials HMCS - Her Majesty's Canadian Ship. Her visit coincides in part with the centennial of Canada's Navy.
For Canada Day on Thursday, she will travel to parliament in Ottawa and deliver a speech as the country marks 143 years since it was established. The 84-year-old monarch will also visit the government and drop in on the newly refurbished Canadian Museum of Nature.
However, her trip will not include a visit to Montreal, after Prince Charles was heckled in Quebec.
The heir to the throne and The Duchess of Cornwall were met with shouts of "Majesty go home" from more than 200 protesters who urged Montreal and Quebec to break away from the British Commonwealth.


If the republicans in Canada do not wish to have the monarchy then fine, there loss, & it will save the Queen time making trips over there! She does too much as it is. "Citizens for a Canadian Republic" should show some gratitude I think!!
Grief is the price we pay for love.

       You miss the point as usual.  Canadians love the Queen and have no problem having her represent her.  It is what is coming after her that they have a problem with.  Queen Elizabeth was enthroned when Canada saw itself as a colony more or less and Canadians in general  are happy to continue that tie with Her Majesty.  What they are not happy about is having Camilla be seen in as a consort of a head of state of the country.  You can see this in the numbers of people who turned out to see each respectively.  Prince Charles and Camillia = 100s the Queen = 1,000s

Not only have you made  a sarcastic putdown to me today, but now Eddie as well?
Twice in one day?
You are becoming more vulgar and sarcastic more than when you first began to pm me.
You should be reported to FA because honestly, you are making more enemies than friends here.
I've had ENOUGH of you!!!!!!
