Royal Wedding Newspaper Album
This week it was my pleasure to receive a copy of Great Experiences’ Royal Wedding newspaper book.
The amazingly presented book contains a massive array of newspaper articles surrounding the 2011 wedding of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales to Miss Catherine Middleton.
Each page has a different set of articles (both black and white and in colour) and the book even comes engraved with the recipients name on the front cover and inside on one of the first pages.
Her Majesty The Queen with Nelson Mandela
Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Charles have been among those sending messages of condolence today after the news broke that former South African President Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95.
The Queen has released an official statement and this will be posted along with other quotes from members of the Royal Family as they are made available online.
ISSUED BY THE PRESS SECRETARY TO THE QUEEN:
The Queen was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Nelson Mandela last night. He worked tirelessly for the good of his country, and his legacy is the peaceful South Africa we see today.
Her Majesty remembers with great warmth her meetings with Mr. Mandela and sends her sincere condolences to his family and the people of South Africa at this very sad time.
Flag of the Republic of Korea
Over the next few days (November 5th to November 7th) the Royal Family will host an incoming state visit by the President of the Republic of Korea at Buckingham Palace.
The president will be received by His Royal Highness the Duke of York on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen and will take part in a number of engagements during the short visit.
The official public schedule was posted on the Official Website for the British Monarchy and can be seen below and also on our blog.
The Duchess of Cambridge
Over the last week there have been a number of royal engagements (as there are during any given week) however two that are worth taking note of are those that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended.
A few days ago His Royal Highness Prince William The Duke of Cambridge stepped in for Her Majesty The Queen and held his first ever investiture ceremony in which he presented awards to a number of people including presenting an OBE to tennis player Andy Murray.
Today, Her Royal Highness Catherine The Duchess of Cambridge attended a SportsAid athlete workshop at The Copper Box at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at which she made her way around the centre and even took part in a small game of volleyball. This was her royal highness’ first solo engagement since giving birth a few months ago to His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
