They should sell a few of those palaces and thousands of acres and feed some of the poor kids in England.

You mean the Crown Estates Lucca?

Barmoral and Sandringham are the Queens houses.

The other palaces are offset by the annual income the Queen receives from the government, so you may want to chat to Boris about this.

The Queen is seen inspecting her late husband's carriages and her horses at Windsor Castle.

The appearance comes days after she took part in her first public engagement since the funeral of her husband Prince Philip.

 

Thanks RnR yes I saw it yesterday and I thought why isn't Lady Louise there as Philip had passed them onto her so it stated.   Never seen the queen interested in that hobby of her husband all the years he did this sport before this photo.

Queen looks so tiny in these photos these days don't you think RnR?

Yes Celia ... she looked so tiny at the funeral too IMO.

She might be the most powerful but the smallest of the bunch is the Queen, standing at just 5ft 3 inches – which is why you'll usually see the 94-year-old Monarch wearing brightly coloured clothes as she needs to ensure she stands out in a crowd.

The Royal Family Members' Heights, from Tallest to Shortest.

 

If the Queen is anything like me she has shrunk in height!  LOL

I remember my very tall son saying to me ten years ago, 'mum you are a lot taller than the average woman I could see you across the shelves at Target'  LOL which we were shopping in and he had gone one way and I had the other.

Then  I take my bone density examination for my height and I had lost 4cm!

The joys of arriving at old, it is not a case of getting old I have arrived and to prove it I am here!

She has a strange face for a little girl, that doesn't look a natural photo for a 6 year old it looks worried!

Not a natural smile I feel.  

It sure shows how the world is speeding along 6 years of age already.

Makes me cast my thoughts back to when I was six!  LOL

 

The Duke of Edinburgh died of ‘old age’, his death certificate reveals.

Prince Philip died ‘peacefully’ aged 99 last month, Buckingham Palace announced at the time.

Yesterday his official death notice was revealed. It states that the cause of death was simply ‘old age’.

It was certified by Sir Huw Thomas, head of the royal medical household.

The description ‘old age’ is accepted if the patient is over 80 and if the doctor has personally cared for the patient for a long period, observing a gradual decline.

It suggests there was no other identifiable disease or injury that contributed to the death, including the heart condition that forced him to undergo a surgical procedure just weeks before he died, according to The Daily Telegraph, which obtained the certificate.

The Duke’s death was registered with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead by his private secretary, Brigadier Archie Miller-Bakewell, on April 13, four days after he passed away.

The certificate gives a nod to the Duke’s Greek heritage as well as his own surname, Mountbatten, which he is said to have fought for the royal family to use.

It lists the Duke’s full name as: ‘His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh formerly known as Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark formerly known as Philip Mountbatten.’

The certificate lists his occupation as ‘Naval Officer’, a successful career of which he was enormously proud, and ‘Prince of the United Kingdom’.

Queen, 95, recalls working 'very hard' for her lifesaving award aged 14, not realising she was the first in the Commonwealth to do it as she joins video call with the Royal Life Saving Society

The Queen has shared memories of achieving her own lifesaving qualification aged 14 during a video call with the Royal Life Saving Society - before revealing she 'didn't realise' she was the first in the Commonwealth to do it.

The Society works across 30 Commonwealth nations with the aim of eliminating preventable death by drowning, promoting water safety, and delivering lifesaving and lifeguarding education. 

In 1941, as Princess Elizabeth, Her Majesty, became the first young person in the Commonwealth to achieve the Society's Junior Respiration Award, providing an example to young people and helping to establish lifesaving and resuscitation qualifications across the network of nations.

The Queen, 95, recalled her memories of receiving the Award 80 years ago, telling the call participants: 'I didn't realise I was the first one - I just did it, and had to work very hard for it!'

'It was a great achievement and I was very proud to wear the badge on the front of my swimming suit. It was very grand, I thought.'

Her Majesty was hosted on the video call by Clive Holland, Deputy President of the Royal Life Saving Society, and joined by Dr Stephen Beerman in Nanaimo, Canada, recipient of the Society's 2020 King Edward VII Cup, as well as lifesavers Tanner Gorille from Cape Town, South Africa, and Sarah Downs from Exeter, UK.

The Queen was interested to hear accounts from trained lifeguards Mr Gorille and Ms Downs, who told her about their respective rescue efforts which led to them both receiving the Society's Russell Medal for saving a life via resuscitation. 

The Russell Medal is awarded annually to someone under 18 years of age, for displaying bravery and quick-thinking under pressure.

Ms Downs received the Medal in 2018 after performing CPR on a young boy who got into difficulties whilst she was on duty at Middlemore Pool in Exeter. 

The Queen recalled her memories of receiving the Award 80 years ago, telling the call participants: 'I didn't realise I was the first one - I just did it, and had to work very hard for it!'

Mr Gorille was similarly recognised for his bravery in 2016 after performing resuscitation on a young woman whilst on volunteer lifeguard duty at one of Cape Town's tidal pools, managing to keep the young woman stable until the paramedics arrived. 

The Queen praised Mr Gorille and Ms Downs for their lifesaving efforts, and putting the skills gained through their training with the Society into action.

The video call was also an opportunity for Her Majesty to virtually present Dr Stephen Beerman with the King Edward VII Cup, awarded every two years in recognition of outstanding contributions to drowning prevention. 

On previous occasions, the King Edward VII Cup has been presented in person by Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen congratulated Dr Beerman for over 40 years of work to draw attention to drowning as a major public health issue, from undertaking research on the ground in the hardest hit countries, to implementing Canada's first Drowning Prevention Plan. 

Her Majesty was hosted on the video call by Clive Holland, Deputy President of the Royal Life Saving Society, and joined by Dr Stephen Beerman in Nanaimo, Canada, recipient of the Society's 2020 King Edward VII Cup, as well as lifesavers Tanner Gorille from Cape Town, South Africa, and Sarah Downs from Exeter, UK (pictured)

On presenting the Cup to Dr Beerman, Her Majesty said: 'I'm very delighted to be able to present you with this Cup – a very large cup, which one day you might see if you come to London.'

The Royal Life Saving Society was founded in London in 1891, in response to the hundreds of preventable drownings happening in the UK. 

Drowning remains one of the biggest causes of preventable death in the world today, with an estimated 235,000 deaths every year, of which 90% occur in low and middle income countries.

The Queen's virtual engagement with the Royal Life Saving Society comes as the United Nations have adopted a historic Resolution on Drowning Prevention, representing the formal acknowledgement of drowning as one of the biggest causes of preventable death in the world today.

The Resolution - spearheaded by Bangladesh and Ireland - sets out specific actions for each country to take to prevent drowning, and introduces an annual 'World Drowning Prevention Day', which will be marked for the first time this year on July 25th, 2021.
