Well not completely. The Cambridge are going to do formal photos also a little later. It's a compromise between tradition and contemporary.

I think it refers to the pictures we were supposed to get tomorrow morning. The most formal picture we'll get is the monarch and heirs one.

I must qualify myself: the article I read( and don't remember where) said formal photos 'may' happen around the time of the christening. Makes sense to me but we'll see I guess :)

We'll get christening photos yes, we'll also get the monarchs photo sooner or later. The picture discussion is off topic of this thread.

Do we know for sure that there will be a 'four monarchs' photo - afterall the last one ended up with the fourth monarch abdicating and a great deal of controversy about that situation? Maybe The Queen won't want to 'tempt fate'.

Lovely. I thought there was a Queen's portrait thread but could not find it.

This is such an endearing portrait. Her Majesty looks so animated, and at ease.

I'm not sure if this is the correct thread ,but the Washington, DC PBS station is airing a documentary about the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. It is on one of the subchannels, WETA UK (Comcast 265), on Sunday from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. EST.

They're actually pretty typical of hunting glasses. The yellow tint cuts the glare and the glasses themselves from flying debris. You can get them with a darker tint or no tint at all, and it just depends on how bright it is or if you're inside.

The article says because there was concern that the recoil of the gun could dislodge a stent put in to unblock an artery.
