Danish Princess Isabella turned 10 this week and lovely portraits were released for her birthday as well (Daily Mail)

The American Presidential couple dined at Kensington Palace this week while on a visit to London. One of their hosts was allowed to stay up 15 minutes past his bedtime to meet them.

This week was all about Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday. Don’t miss galleries of the Queen’s style here and here,
longtime royal photographer’s account of photographing the Queen, or this excellent review of all of Her Majesty’s Jewels (The Royal Jewel Vault).  If you haven’t already seen them, here are the three official portraits of the Queen taken by Annie Leibovitz for this milestone (note little Mia Phillip’s death grip on her great-Granny’s handbag) and the wonderful four-generation stamp-sheet photograph of the Queen and her three heirs commissioned by the Royal Mail.

You won’t want to miss these two family tributes.

  1. HQ, thank you for the wonderful videos. When one sees HM filmed, her hats come to life much more than in a photo, with a great sense of three dimensionality. The Special Report gives us a glimpse of some spectacular pieces. Check out the beauty at 21:25, among many others.
