She does look like the Duchess of Kent. We don't see her often at family gatherings.

In case you mean the lady sitting on her folding chair, she's a
very down-to-earth royal fan I feel certain that the lady
with Prince Philip is not the Duchess of Kent, although there
actually is a faint resemblance

I wonder who the Duchess-of-Kent-like lady is? Any ideas? Perhaps one of Prince Philip's relatives?

I was thinking the same thing. Or could she be a lady-in-waiting to the Queen?
As for the little lady in the folding chair, I think she's adorable. I hope P Edward had gone over to offer her a greeting.

Has anyone ever been before? What is it like? and what do you wear?- I'm not Scottish and have no intention of wearing a kilt

I'm quite looking forward to the day though it's quite a long time away!

Thank goodness for that, If you do not have a clan and therefore do not have a Tartan, it is considered very bad form.

Although I am sure, as usual there will be some plastic Scots in attendance!

Nice to see HM enjoying herself. Thanks for the pheasant shoot pics, Iceflower.

I'm going to show my ignorance now, by asking whether, when you eat one of those birds that has been felled by shotgun pellets, you have to be on your guard to make sure you don't break a tooth on a pellet, or are they easy to spot and remove before the critter is cooked?

Normally after the bird has been plucked, cook can see where they went in and get them out before cooking them. It also depends how close the shooter was to the bird when they killed it and which shot they used. It is always wise to be a little wary though.

I ate some roast pheasant once at a posh country pub in Norfolk and found two lead pellets and so did my friends - cook must have been having a bad day!

These are all great pictures, thanks iceflower! I think that my favourite is the one of Her Majesty speaking to the man with the pink, spiky mohawk!

Very nice pictures. Does anybody know why Camilla may have been dressed in what might be described as evening wear, whilst HM and Sophie are in "work wear"?

She was going to attend a dinner at Guildhall after the reception. So she probably wouldn't have had time to change!

Thank you Andrew. The reception at Guildhall was not listed in the diary section of the POW's website.

British Royal Family Relationships

Dear All

I am currently researching a television series about the Queen and I am looking at 1992 in particular. This was undoubtedly a traumatic year for the British Royal Family and ended with the separation of the Prince and Princess of Wales. I am looking for people who can remember this year in terms of the Royal Family scandals and who might want to talk about it on camera. These are the following areas of discussion:

1. Did 1992 mark the break up of the Windsor Family?
2. Could the Queen have done more to keep the family together?
3. Was the Morton book an act of betrayal against the Royal Family or was Princess Diana right to lift the facade?
4. Was this the most damaging year to the British Monarchy?

If you have any opinions on these subjects I would love to hear from you - preferrably British residents I'm afraid!

Many thanks

Laura
