Prince Philip and the Queen with matching umbrellas
Queen Elizabeth II (left) and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, shelter from the rain under umbrellas as they arrive at a Royal Garden Party in the gardens of Buckingham Palace in London. The date was July 21, 2009. You've *got* to love the matching colors and styles of those umbrellas, don't you? He's formal, with the classic British 'brolly'; she's doing her royal pastels cloth coat thing, with umbrella trim that matches precisely. Prince Philip was born in 1921, so he turned 88 the year this photo was taken. We won't speak of Her Majesty's age.
