Whatever Harry and Meghan gave to the Queen on her birthday was, I'm sure, accepted wholeheartedly and graciously by the Queen.  

 

None of the biddies here know what goes on in private amongst the families.  All this speculation is in such poor taste.  I'm sure the Queen wouldn't give them the time of day for speaking about her family like that.


@Bri369  So today you have called fellow posters biddies and sour pusses. More resorting to name calling.  IMO that reflects more on you than anyone else here.

@Somertime I doubt Harry is that big of a deal in the course of her life.  She has dealt with a lot worse than him.  

 

She is a survivor, a realist and a person of great courage and character. She's not going to let that ruin her day no doubt!  I'm sure she wishes it were otherwise, but she has bigger fish to fry than Harry.

What would you buy an older woman like the queen?  Most of my elderly relatives did not want any presents or anymore useless stuff.  Flowers and a handmade card are exactly what I received for my recent birthday and I still have it all on display.


@tansy  I agree with what you said about most elderly people. However, it's not like the Queen needs to downsize!😂  I'm sure she can find a place for a few more tzotchkes! 😂

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUEEN ELIZABETH

I don't know about Harry's speedy return but I do believe that William was deeply hurt by the interview with Oprah. What was discussed should have been done with family, not the world. I find it very sad that they chose to do such a thing, and while his grandfather was dying.

@Pearlee I would buy her something nice to go in that handbag!  A little hankie, a pocket mirror, a little makeup case, or a nice pen.

@Sooner. You reminded me of something I think she'd just love....something about Philip or them together. She'd treasure that. You reminded me because she supposedly had a photo of the  two of them on their honeymoon, and a hankie of Philip's in her handbag at the funeral.

@Sooner  I suspect you're right especially given the many challenges she's faced in her life and the extensive family in England who support her.

@Pearlee   Your thread title should have been "Yet More SPECULATION, Mostly Negative, About H & M" since that is what the majority of this thread is about.

 

If it was a birthday wish for the queen you would have omitted

 

"Harry didn't stick around for her b-day and is back in CA."

@Mersha What else would we do on a discussion board? We can wish the Queen a Happy Birthday and discuss Harry. As for speculation we all speculate on this board.

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUEEN ELIZABETH

@manny2   You are missing the point of my post.

 

It was written in response to a thread title.  See below.

 

The majority of this thread is about H & M so the title is misleading to the reader.

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUEEN ELIZABETH

Wishing a Happy Birthday to Her Majesty and many more to come!  As far as H&M go, Harry had already been gone over a week.  We don't know Meghan's due date or whether she is at high risk for preterm delivery because of her miscarriage or some other condition.  I'm sure that the Queen supported Harry's decision.
