Yes!! Happy 90th Birthday to HRH Prince Phillip The Duke of Edinburgh!!
He just amazes me that at his age, he's as spry and as w/it as he is.
Great article w/quotes from Princess Anne, The Princess Royal...

The Queen's Birthday Honours List has been released today as well. Remember, Trooping The Colour is her HM's Official Birthday, so...
Daily Mail ~ Knight to sir you, to sir you knight! At last it's Sir Bruce as Forsyth heads Birthday Honours
Also on that list...
Congratulations to Colin!!Joining Sir Bruce on the honours list is actor Colin Firth, awarded a CBE only months after collecting an Oscar for playing the Queen’s father George VI in The King’s Speech.
And the latest bit of the Fergie promoting Finding Sarah tour...

One thing about tomorrow and the Balcony Scene...
Princess Pushy, aka Princess Michael of Kent, *always* makes sure she's behind HM so she can get into the Papers the next day. Okay then...What are the odds that she "ensures" she's beside Catherine tomorrow instead? I mean, it's a given a lot of pictures of the Duchess at her first Trooping the Colour in the Papers on Sunday, so...I'm just wondering.
Bad enough she wore that HUGE "Plan 9 From Outer Space" UFO hat to the Wedding...
...but if she was trying to hog some spotlight, it must have frosted her nuts to see Princess Bea's bedbug hat getting the attention!
Congrats to Dame Janet Suzman (aka the Tsarina in "Nicholas & Alexandra") AND to John Amaechi, OBE!

Wheeee Trooping the Colour day And congrats to Sir Bruce Forsyth for finally getting the knighthood he's deserved for so long. About freakin' time!!!
The family are on the balcony as the Queen stands at the gates of BP watching the guard go past and guess who's stood next to Kate???
^ It looks like she's trying to figure out how to shove those kids into the oven at her gingerbread house.
Next thing I know I glance up and she and her friend are sitting front row, centre of the dress circle and I thought; wow she did good on the upgrade, and that was about it.
Anyway my FOH manager comes up to me a few minutes later just before curtain up and makes sure I'm ok. Then he asks if I was the one who referred the woman in the centre of the dress circle to him over her tickets to which I replied yes, so he thanked me and said I did the right thing. Then he asked if I knew who it was, to which I replied no, obviously.
'That is Nicole Kidman' he says!!
Me = and in equal measure. I had quite a few memorable nights as an usher and that's not including the Princess Margaret pissed-as-a-newt-in-the-dress-circle-bar-demanding-more-gin-or-else episode!!
I'm guessing sort of fun, unless you're the bartender who's getting ripped to shreds!
I'm assuming this was during the post-Mustique years, after everything went to hell and the booze-bloat took over.......?
Anyway, her daughter Sarah was with her and managed to get her back to her box but they left before the end by a side entrance as she was in no fit state to leave through the front in general view of the public.
