The video still amuses me as the singers are so enthusiastic and the guests are thinking, "what the heckkkk?!"
I don't know if too many Royal weddings (especially those an an heir apparent) have those types of things going on. It definitely made me think 'what the heck?' as I was watching the clip.

One of the very few images of Lady Louise at her cousin Peter's wedding (more like her leaving the wedding with her parents).

From the small amount of images we saw of Lady Louise at her cousin's wedding, she looked adorable, as always. Her dress looked so cute.

I found some adorable images of Prince Edward and then Queen when he was a baby. Edward was such a beautiful baby, wow. He had such a cute face! It's such a bummer that we can't remove the watermarks.

Edward and Queen 1 and Edward and Queen 2

I have come across the most adorable image of the Queen with James, Viscount Severn. It is from the same photoshoot as the one released for the Royal Windsor Horse Show 2011, taken at Easter at Windsor. It is one of the images that will go on display for the Queen's Diamnd Jubilee - 60 Images for 60 Years.

Queen and James

I printscreened the page as I was unable to retrieve the image any other way, and it is a cropped version. The original from the website has Lady Louise in it, but I just thought the little smiles between James and the Queen were too cute.

Edward doesn't look too comfortable. Quite amusing, though he probably sees these characters on his home TV screens pretty often. He may be feeling a bit tired of them.

I love the picture of James with his Granny. They must enjoy each other's company.

He is looking rather like his grandfather George VI. Maybe the solemn expression helps.

Yes, that's true. I hadn't noticed the resemblance before. I'm trying to imagine the conversation between the Earl and the characters. haha

I tried and failed. Edward looks so uncomfortable, haha. Poor guy.

I agree Princess of Durham, Edward does look a lot like George VI. I have often thought that when looking at some pictures, and perhaps it is the ears that make the resemblance, but this expression in the above images highlights it even more.

Remind you of anyone? I see William - very close resemblance at a certain point in his young manhood - maybe even still? I always thought that William was more and more resembling the Spencer side of the family as he has been aging, but with this, I'm not so sure.

I agree, Edward was a handsome young man and an adorable little boy. His bright blonde hair was so beautiful, I am glad Lady Louise has inherited his blonde genes. William reminds me of Edward alot, physically, in many ways. In certain images, depending on the stance, I have to double take to see who it is. It doesn't help they both are losing their hair.

Lady Louise 2006, 2, 3 and 4

Even at 2 1/2, Lady Louise was practicing her Grandfather's walk! Here she is with her Nanny (the same one they've had for both children, which I think is brilliant for the children's benefit) at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May 2006. The little waddle with her hands clasped behind her back is so precious, just like Prince Philip. In some of the images she looks like she is trying to work out what the camera is.

The resemblance is very, very striking. If I didn't know, I would have assumed that it was Wills. The similarities in looks are still there even now.

I love the pictures, but my favorite has to be when she's touching the nanny's face. Very sweet moment.

With regard to the similarity between Edward and William I have trouble at times telling which one is which from the side or the back. The best example recently was on the day of the rehearsal for the wedding when William arrived I had to do a double take because I actually thought it was Edward. To me William has always looked like a Windsor and there are many photos of his that remind me of a young Philip and a young Edward.
