Apparently the Queens habit  of late night TV viewing is thought to be one of the culprits  in her overdoing things.

 

Hmm. "The monarch has also continued to enjoy her late-night television pastime, particularly at the weekends, and reportedly stayed up to watch 18-year-old tennis star Emma Raducanu win the US Open. "

 

The Queen famously certainly used to find tennis boring, the 1977 Wimbledon Championships were a particular chore of the Silver Jubilee engagements, so I'd take that with a pinch of salt.

 

I think she'll see 100, but I'm probably going to be adding her to my teams from 2022 onwards. I have a funny feeling both her and David Attenborough will go around the same time, which will be a huge blow to public morale and everything we hold sacred.

Any person will eventually die so it would be too easy to say right umm they'll go on my list every year.

On my list this year but deffo not on another one until 2023

I think we are extrapolating from a very poor data set. However the fact that this is the most active thread at the moment means that in terms of interest and public recognition her "fame" test outstrips her "ill" test.

 

I think she will survive 2022 and probably won't add her to my personal shadow list unless there is a lot of people who will die between now and the New Year but I now think she is a permanent fixture on the main list until her demise

Haha - if that was North Korea you wouldn't be querying the day you'd be querying who it was - she's a false beard short of full comedy disguise.

See, nothing wrong with her at all.

 

Classic skiver - hence the headscarf and sunglasses.

The Queen looks well in the video message for Cop26. Through her words sound a bit like it’s her global goodbye.

'for the people of tomorrow because none of us will live forever'

 

I imagine this quote at the very end is the one they are referring to.
 

Unarguable, but I suppose it just adds to the conversation surrounding her health when she discusses her mortality as she signs off on the speech.

Long time royal author and royal commentator on YouTube  Lady Colin Campbell seems to strongly hint that the Queens health issue is something of an embarrassing nature  ie toilet related and not a health matter serious  enough to cause alarm. 

It is the first topic discussed in the video.

Lucky her - I've got the Secret Service, the Met Police, a bunch of rich folk and their aides and Extinction fucking Rebellion as neighbours for the next 3 weeks or so...

How's it going with Glasgow now full of world leaders, their entourages,  VIPS, global movers and shakers and presumably some rather hot  top  protection officers and security  all over the place?!:wub:

Ssssh ! :DI think the enema will still deliver some success and surprises including on the deathlist  but I think most of its energy this year will be in the direction of a record number of hits on the Derby Dead Pool.....

Gone full on anti-social and staying away from them, tbh. But today we had 6 protests, one Presidental motorcade (22 cars), and Greenpeace nearly destroyed one of the major bridges across the Clyde.

That’s an A* in straw-clutching from The Old Cretin then ain’t it?

Johnson isn't President yet!  

 

Yes, although to be fair to Biden, 3 cars were him and his security detail, and 19 cars were the press following him, who got the same police escort...

How long before she emulates her late husband's driving style, the difference being she doesn't exactly have a licence to hand over afterwards?

 I thought it would be Biden or Macron!

 

I suppose to  highlight the positives the hotel and hospitality  trade in Glasgow will be booming for the next two weeks and feel like a god sent after the past 18 months.

 

I have previously stayed in one of the Hilton hotels, The Crowne Plaza,  The Malmaison and a bed and breakfast near the Mackintosh  art school. I reckon there's a good chance that at least one world leader or media news bigwig is sleeping on a mattress tonight that my backside has slept on! What a thought!

Oh I'm not sure how similar the tales we would have to tell about our time in the hotel bedroom  would be ..  .but thats another story.....:P:D;)

If Lady Colin Campbell is well sourced and reliable then much of the speculation on here has been wildly ,widely and dramatically  off target!:D

The Queen has been flown to Sandringham. Can’t see her coming back this side of 2022. Has been rumoured in the past she wants to die there rather than at Windsor.

No change there then.  The RF traditionally gather at Sandringham for Christmas.
