There is a lot of knowledge in that head of hers.

I noticed the same purse in two pictures, probably a couple of decades apart.  She is obviously a thrifty lass.

I've watched this before but don't know how many of you haven't.
I thought it was very interesting.

Well with the Queen you dont offer to shake hands and she doesnt always wear gloves so the answer is sometime but rarely.

she some years ago it would be better for both sides, when you wear gloves, when you have to shake so many hands... at a reception it could be more than 300 people...

 I think centuries ago the "Royal touch " was thought to have magic, healing powers,  got to say,
if gloves are involved its hardly  the same is it !

for me, as I could shake her hand some years ago.. it's so unimported if there are gloves or not. I mean, came so near to her.. it's... wow....!!!! unforgetable

I understand what your saying, shaking the Queens bare hand would be a treat, but on the other side of the coin, if I put myself in her place, well.......................who knows what one has just done with their hands? I mean, they could've just picked their noses! And whilst it seemed so nice when Diana did it, I'd still feel a bit funny about it.

HH Pope Benedicy XVI will arrive in Edinburgh this morning at the start of a rare Papal State Visit to the UK.
The Pontiff will be received by HM Queen Elizabeth at Hollyrood Palace.

You can follow the arrival on BBC 1 from 10.00 GMT.

In spite of the fact that Vatican City is a state (more of a fiction state), I am not sure why the Queen is receiving the head of a religion as a secular head of state.

And,the Vatican is not a fiction State,at all.It is not only the Holy See to the largest denomination on earth but also home
 to a elected Monarch,which the Pope is.The Vatican isn't fiction, the cyberworld often is.

HM is Head of the Church of England,as we all know,but not Head of the Church of Scotland.
So she was obliged to act accordingly.And btw,I don't think anyone should point out to HM
how to act when and to whom,she knows better then any living soul on the how's what and
when and do's and don't's.At all.
