I know, definitely. The thing that's worse about falling like that, worse than the humiliation, is how it hurts! You know you always come away with some scrap or something, and it burns, and it just irks you like crazy..... Well, that's what happens to me anyway. I'm the clumsiest person I know, often tripping over something, and it hurts, and I just get mad, mainly at myself, but every now and then it comes out at the wrong innocent soul who only meant to help!

Either she was on pain killers or she didn't get too hurt, she looked fine at the Household Cavalry Pageant tonight!

Whoops! I felt embarrassed for her when I saw the pictures but hey, it could happen to any of us. Only difference is it wouldn't make the papers!

Seems to me that she acted like a horse's patoot by the way she reacted to the official's efforts to help her up.

'Hands orf!' One can pick oneself up, says Anne | the Daily Mail

I guess she really is that abrasive. She's not on my list of favorite royals.

Well it is an unspoken rule that one doesn't touch a Royal person. He shouldn't have grabbed her the way he did.

Not just a royal, if some male had grabbed me in that way as I fell, husband included, he would have recieved much the same response!

It makes it so much worse, as you start to slip you angle your body and then some complete idiot ensures you fall straight on your coccyx!

I know Anne has a reputation for being abrupt, but on this occasion I think it was just a reaction. She was obviously embarassed and probably just wanted to get up without too much attention. (Although I think it was very kind of the man to help her, regardless of whether he was meant to or not).

Mr Skydragon says the chap was just being a gentleman, but Mr Skydragon should remember what can happen to such helpful gentlemen!

It makes you wonder what happened after the public walkabout. I know the protoccol is not to touch the "person" of a royal, but at the same time, you want to believe that common decency to help another person in distress should win out.

Sometimes you wonder if blind adherence to these rules actually diminishes the public standing of the royals.

I don't think it was just the royal 'don't touch', it was sheer embarrassment and the fact that his attempt to help made a bad situation worse. Most women of Anne's age would I think have acted the same way.

If he had stopped the fall, with any woman it would have been all smiles and thank you's, he didn't. For all we know Anne said to him afterwards, thanks for trying, but that isn't something the mail would bother reporting.

Watch the video on Sky News Sky News - UK News, World News and Business News. The First for breaking global News! When you see the slope of the street, I would not want someone behind or to the side of me try to help me regain the vertical position (just the wrong angle).

What should he have done? just stand there and watch her role around on the blacktopped road? What if she had broken an ankle? Would it then have been appropriate to touch the exalted royal flesh to help her onto a stretcher or would that also be beyond the pale? It's not like he was trying to grope/goose her. Sometimes Anne seems to be channelling the haughty Princess Margaret.

I hope she does channel Princess M. There was a real Royal who knew her position and knew the deference that position commanded. You don't touch a Princess - simple as.

Was Anne serving the dinner? A bow tie on a woman is rarely flattering.
