There have been a lot of posts about this over the years. Maybe try a google search for "the royal forums" +redmayne +william and see what pops up.
Google search is much more selective than the Forums search is. More about that somewhere in the members forums.
Eddie often tosses an acceptable mention about the good old days out there when asked. When pressed for insider stuff, he deflects the questions really well. He has not leveraged the relationship to play the press, so good on him! IMO

It's unusual for them to be sick at the same time.

Wonder if one of their little guests at lunch shared some germs with them I do hope they get better soon. Worrisome they are both ill, and it was enough to keep them in London. I would understand cancelling an engagement as wouldn't need stress and public. But going to their estate is different. Hopefully they are on the mend and heading home soon.

I wonder what happens to Christmas at Sandringham if they dont make it up there. Know it's only a cold, but has to be severe for them to change plans, and only four days till Christmas.

We just have to take what the announcement tells us and that is that both the Queen and the DoE have severe colds and are delaying their trip to Sandringham.

This comes a day after the announcement that roads will be shut down for the Changing of the Guards due to security reasons. It may be possible that measures are being taken to be extra precautionary and best to not panic the public any more than they'd have to.

Then again, it may be exactly what it is. Colds. Its just that these nonagenerians very rarely, if ever, pull out of doing anything that they're scheduled to do and when it does happen, the world takes notice. To me, that's one heck of a reputation for work ethic and reliability.

Whatever is going on, I hope their holidays are the best yet.

I'm sure IMO theres no underlying reason other than what has been stated- they both have colds. It would seem, as we haven't heard otherwise, they were well enough to attend lunch yesterday with the family so I really think this is a case of two 90+year olds saying they don't feel great today so aren't going to sit on a train for three hours as they can just as easily go tomorrow. If they were really ill or security was an issue they could have / would have gone by helicopter.

Thanks lucien. You've just put a picture in my head of HM and the DoE all cozied up with lots of pillows and blankets and having hot chicken noodle soup on trays in front of the TV and catching up on favorite shows or maybe being sentimental and watching a DVD of "South Pacific" yet again.

If any couple deserve to be coddled it is this duo.

thanks Osipi for the cute picture I agree if anyone deserves some coddling and just rest it is these two. Hopefully they get the rest needed for the weekend.

Oh dear, I hope that both HM and Prince Philip get better soon. It would be unfortunate if they were ill over the Christmas period.

Hope that the colds are of short duration and that there is no repeat of when Phillip was very ill during the Christmas of 2011.

I think we can all rest assured that no matter what the illness, the couple will have the very best of medical attention at their disposal. Nothing will be chanced or overlooked and everything taken into consideration.

The only snafu I could see in this is getting the DoE to meekly follow doctor's orders. HM would listen and heed but I imagine the DoE still doesn't go quietly into the night and does things his own way.

Maybe the two of them, and the remaining dorgi, will be driven to Sandringham rather than worry about a train journey. I hope the Queen and Prince Philip get better soon and can have their usual lovely Christmas at Sandringham. If, by some misfortune, neither can make it, possible at their ages, I suppose the Sandringham gathering will go ahead anyway and Charles will be the host.

Could be, or the family take Christmas to them (the Queen and Philip) at Windsor or Buckingham Palace.

Although, I'm guessing they will make it to Sandringham.
