I had a lovely lunch in Dallas (at Henk's European Deli) today with Sollbruchstelle, who had been visiting for the American Library Association midwinter meeting; we celebrated the 300th birthday of Frederick the Great.  Unfortunately I inexplicably neglected to get a photo taken of the two of us, for which I am now annoyed at myself.  However hopefully I will see him again when the Dallas Symphony performs in Frankfurt (where he lives) in March 2013.  Reinhold is a member of the Bund aufrechte Monarchisten, itself part of the Deutsche Monarchistische Gesellschaft, and will be attending the Monarchieforum in Gotha in September.

It was a very nice Japanese meal.  We did forget to toast the health of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of Japan, but I'm sure his Majesty won't be seriously offended... especially since we were indulging in tea rather than sake...

It was a great time.

I assume you've all seen coverage of the Diamond Jubilee in general.  So here I will just be posting some photos of me with other monarchists, including members of this forum, one for each of the four glorious days of the Central Weekend (June 2-5).  Hope you enjoy them.  (Sorry that I was unable to be more attentive to this forum while in the UK, but I was busy and relying for internet almost exclusively on my mobile phone on which Facebook is easiest.  Since we have no "Like" function here, please comment!)   For more photos, see Facebook.



After my Diamond Jubilee recital at my hostess's home, Ashley Gardens, June 2, 2012, with (L-R) Peter, Seth, Norway's Jørn K. Baltzersen, and NewElizabethan.

Well some of us who are North American monarchists on Facebook are having a gathering in Chicago next month, July 13-16.  (I can't remember if I've mentioned this on the forum yet.  If not I should have.)  Outside of Facebook there is no formal registration and I'm sure monarchists from anywhere would be welcome. 

As far as Europe is concerned, the next time I'll be there will be for the Dallas Symphony tour in March 2013: Netherlands, England, Austria, and Germany.  I would love to visit Norway (as you can see we had a Norwegian guest at the Jubilee) but don't know when that will happen.

I'm not a fan of big crowds and so did not attend any of the public Jubilee events. I did however greatly enjoy the private gathering from which the first picture of this series is taken, and it was a real pleasure to renew acquaintance with royalcello and Don Foreman, and to meet for the first time Don's friend Peter (who had travelled all the way from Australia) and Seth and NewElizabethan from the forum. The recital was also a great pleasure, and I am grateful to royalcello for the invitation and his splendid performance.

Thank you for sharing these pictures.
The inability to afford to travel is the only thing (besides having a secretary) that I miss about the 'good old days' with the 'high paying job'.

Still its nice to be able to share, even if only at second hand.
