I think perhaps in the case of HM and the Doe's picture perhaps they got them in reverse order. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of them kissing before. We do, however, know that Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward weren't found in a cabbage patch so its kind of sweet to see this.

That made me laugh out loud. I don't think i've ever seen them show a public display of affection before either, but I think that's nice that they keep it to themselves. Charles and Andrew were not afraid to show affection in public with their wives, both current and previous, but Edward and Anne don't seem to fond too do so. Perhaps they got that from their parents!

The Daily Mail do write some amusing articles, true or not.

The big question for me comes up - aside from greeting or saying farewell at the airport - why would they be doing that? Like, they just get out of the car/carriage - oh, hey! there you are, long time no see! [smoooch]

I like the color of the outfit. Very gentle blue. It suits Her Majesty. Though I wonder if she's not a little warm in the coats she wears even during the summer months. Unless of course it's a bit colder in Scotland than in the rest of United Kingdom.

Of course it's colder up here than down south....

The Hospital is named after the River Forth which flows into the North Sea at Edinburgh. It's also the spot where the Forth Rail Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge are situated.

I didn't like the mention of the "robotic delivery system" - do they mean babies ??

Thankfully not - the royals were there "...to watch the "robots" working within their own exclusive network of corridors to deliver supplies such as meals and laundry to individual wards - an innovative system which has attracted worldwide interest."

I was joking.... but, joking apart ! ..... no doubt they do sterling work and free the nurses to look after patients.

"Name that robot" - schoolkids are being invited to "name the robot".
