  4. Her grandfather, the late King George V, had a vast stamp collection and often he could be found sitting in front of the great many albums sorting his collection. It surely is a dear subject to her.

  6. She's so tiny and gracious. Privileged life or not, I hope I'm doing as well at that age (*if* I even make it to that age) and most important, still in full control of my faculties. Wow.

  8. Such a gracious and beautiful lady. I love her dress, jacket, and, especially, her hat with velvet leaves. Can anyone identify the brooch? It is lovely. She genuinely seems to enjoy these events.

  10. I find it interesting that other queens get vilified for promoting charitable groups but this royal visit to a stamp club is lauded for an outfit. Hmmm. G

    1. Are they all 93 and have shown the kind faithfulness to public duties as this one? Perhaps that has a lot to do with it too.
