    That's where the royal taser is located. The purse is only a disguise.

    That photo is weird. I knew the Queen was very petite but Prince Philip has really shrunk (rumour has it that he's gone totally ga-ga too). Or are the Obama's particularly tall?

    Michelle's drab dress is terrible. Pear shaped women should avoid A-line skirts at all costs.

    Oh and she's the Queen of Australia too, ie Head of State.

    It looks like Phillip is leaning forward in the picture. That shortens him a bit.

    I saw another picture of Michelle and she looked TIRED. Probably from traveling and all, but it was obvious.

    But agree with all your comments: its an awkward photo all together.

    Queen Elizabeth always carries her purse and always wears a pin on her left shoulder. She's pretty in pink.

    The Queen, for all her admirable qualities, has always been a real stickler for routine, protocol and tradition and never moves or thinks outside the box. When times get tough she retreats even further into her safety zone of "it's always been done like this". This can range from her clothes, jewellery, hair and accessories which have remained more or less unchanged for the last 60 years to her behaviour in the aftermath of St Diana's death when she insisted on Sunday morning church in public for her grieving grandsons just hours after receiving the news of their mother's death to refusing to allow the flag to fly at half mast at Buckingham Palace because it was against protocol. The way she handled that situation was the only time she's ever put a foot wrong by so badly misjudging the public mood.

    People sneer at and mock the royal family for being a total waste of space and money and some of them absolutely deserve it. But the Queen has given almost 60 years of selfless service as Head of State not only of the UK but of Australia, Canada, and other Commonwealth countries and for a woman of 83 who shows no sign of relinquishing those duties I think she's remarkable.

    What will happen when Charles III or even William V is in charge is another story.

    I actually think they all looked forward to meeting each other and really seemed to get on.

    I think the Queen's staff discretely suggest signed photos, etc. It's not like she needs a new plant pot holder or Sodastream. Apparently the basement at Buckingham Palace is stuffed full of craptastic gifts from foreign leaders that are too hideous to display and she can't exactly flog them on eBay.

    the funniest part about the dvd gift to Brown- setting aside how bad they looked next to what Brown gave -were all the reports that they weren't the right code for the UK.

    who was the idiot assistant that made that mistake?

    Well, Dubya was an embarassment to me, but I survived. So will you.
