British Vogue has named Her Majesty the Queen as one of the world's most glamourous women. The Queen appears in the top 50 alongside the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.

British Vogue describes glamour as being, "not about what you wear but how you wear something". The Queen is described as being as glamourous in her Balmoral outfit of brogues and headscarf as she is when she is wearing the crown jewels. The Queen is one of the hardest working members of the Royal family. Despite her busy lifestyle, she always maintains a sense of dignity, style and elegance that is sometimes lacking in the younger members of the Royal family. The Queen is a great ambassador for Britain and one of the great style icons of our time. Long may she reign over us.

Have you heard anything new about the Diana investigation?

I was a bit puzzled by this distinction given the Queen but I suppose it does make sense as you explain it. Somehow, glamourous is overly associated with flashiness.

Even though Americans don't think too often of the Royal family, I absolutely agree that the Queen has a certain elegance and definitely a sense of dignity. BVogue did well. Who will take over the crown when she steps down? Just a thought. Have a wonderful week, Naomi.

Hi Princess Haiku, the Diana inquest is still on-going at the moment. There are so many conflicting stories about what might or might not have happened on the night of the accident, it's very difficult to separate fact from fiction.

I agree Sheila but in the Queen's case, I think it shows how she always maintains a sense of dignity and poise at all times.

Hi Debby (sorry Gatekeeper!), Prince Charles is the heir to the throne but because of his age, I personally believe that it will be William, his eldest son and heir who will be our next monarch. You have a wonderful week too Gatekeeper. Keep in touch!

I adore the Queen but always wished she had better designers and a new hairdresser. She does as you say have poise and Britain should be proud of all that she has achieved over the years with her diplomacy.g
