New guy

Hey guys,
My name is AJ, and I am an American, but born with Portuguese royal blood from my father's side of the family. I found this site, and I am looking to check out all the different royals throughout the world.

Looks like a fun site!

New to forum. Watching the royal wedding on TV tonite, each time William saluted while riding in the coach to Buckingham, Katy looked down toward the floor of the carriage. This action was very deliberate on her part. Anybody know the history behind this gesture?

James Whitaker (royal correspondent) interviewed on Australian TV suggests it's just a sign of respect from her towards the person or persons William is saluting.

It was most definitly the Duchess's way of paying her respects.
