Queen Elizabeth the second and her son Andrew, Duke of York, made an appearance in London for the Queen’s last royal outing before her Christmas holiday.

They visited the Lincoln Inn and the Great Hall. While there the Queen opened a new teaching facility worth $25 million, called the Ashworth Centre.

The Queen viewed a portrait of her sister, Princess Margaret, and of Queen Victoria opening the Great Hall in 1845.

Queen Elizabeth the second signed the “Golden Book,” which is the Inn’s visitor’s book. It also contains the signatures of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria, King James the second, and King Charles the second.

PRINCE PHILIP’S HEALTH

The reason that the Duke of York accompanied the Queen on her excursion was that her husband, Prince Philip, has stepped down from royal duties due to his health.

Earlier this year Prince Philip was in the hospital for ten days following a hip replacement operation. The Queen did not visit him in the hospital as she believes it would distract medical staff from their duties.

When the Queen was asked about her husband’s health she replied:

“He’s doing very well, thank you.”

FORBIDDEN LOVE

However, the Queen and Prince Philip had problems initially with getting their marriage approved by her father, King George the sixth.

The King did not approve of Prince Philip’s career as a naval officer and his sisters’ connections to the Nazi party through their marriages.

Eventually, he reluctantly agreed to the union that his daughter wanted, and the couple announced their engagement shortly after the Queen’s 21st birthday.
