Queen Elizabeth inspects the Platinum Jubilee art presentations

The Queen is all smiles as she plays with her beloved dog Candy and looks at cards and gifts from well-wishers in a series of new photos shared to mark her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Buckingham Palace released the new photos to celebrate the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.

Taken in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle a few weeks ago, the Queen sits with a display of memorabilia from the Gold and Platinum Jubilees.

In a charming moment, a curious member of her family seems to want a sneak preview of her letters: her pet, Candy.

Candy is a dorgi, a cross between a corgi and a dachshund, and she circled the room, surveying a small group of media representatives capturing the display.

The Queen said: “And where do you come from? I know what you want”, is probably a reference to a gift, and she called out to Candy and gave her a pat.

The monarch, who has had more than 30 corgis during her reign, currently has three dogs: Candy now quite elderly, a young corgi named Muick and another corgi pup who replaced Fergus, the dorgi pup, who died unexpectedly in May last year. .

A card celebrating the 2002 Golden Jubilee caught the Queen’s eye: it was made from eight bottle caps, including milk, Coke and Schweppes bottles, and had the handwritten words “Ma’am, you are the best “.

“That’s nice, simple but ingenious,” the queen told Dr. Stella Panayotova, a librarian and assistant to the royal archives, who joined her at the wake two weeks ago.

The exhibit included a Golden Jubilee letter from a nine-year-old boy named Chris, titled “A Recipe for a Perfect Queen.”

His list of ingredients, which included “500 ml of royal blood”, a “little bit of jewelry and fancy dresses” and “a pinch of loyalty”, made the Queen laugh and say, “That’s quite funny, isn’t it? ?

Platinum Jubilee cards were also on display and the Queen praised the design of one with a picture of her as a young woman surrounded by flowers with the words “70 glorious years”.

Recipes and images from entrants in the Platinum Pudding competition were on display, showcasing the results of chefs who rose to the challenge of creating a memorable dessert worthy of the Queen and the nation.

Another royal aide told the Queen: “We’ve had a number of Platinum Pudding competition entries that have been coming in over the past few weeks. People have been very creative.”

The monarch flipped through the pictures of the tickets, then said: “It looks like they’re all going to end up with crowns.”

He also studied a fan given to Queen Victoria to commemorate her Golden Jubilee in 1887 by the then Prince and Princess of Wales, later Edward VII, and Queen Alexandra.

In the years following Victoria’s jubilee, it was signed by members of her family, including her eldest daughter, the Princess Royal, known as Vicky to her relatives, and her granddaughter, Princess Alix, later the Tsarina of Russia, and the then Prime Minister, the Marquess of Salisbury. .

The Queen opened the fan and commented on how easily it could have been damaged by signing it, adding, “Remarkable, isn’t it, and it still closes.”

Commenting on the signings, he said: “Well that’s very interesting to see, quite a meeting.”

During the evening, the Queen paid a moving tribute to her late father by wearing her aquamarine and diamond clip brooches, worn separately in a diagonal setting on her turquoise dress.

They were an 18th birthday present from her beloved “Papa”, George VI, in April 1944.

The two art deco-style pieces were made by Boucheron with baguette, oval and round diamonds and aquamarines.

He also chose to wear the precious brooches when he addressed the nation on the 75th anniversary of VE Day in 2020 and for his televised Diamond Jubilee address in 2012.

Elizabeth II came to the throne 70 years ago this Sunday when, on February 6, 1952, the ailing king, who suffered from lung cancer, died at Sandringham in the early morning.

The Queen, who stays at the Sandringham estate, often spends each Ascension Day in private, reflecting on the bittersweet anniversary of the loss of her father and the start of her reign.
