Quite shocking actually. The fact that Harry didn't turn up and chose to party, William was away, Andrew and charles putting there feet up on holiday. The fact that the quee turned out was incredible. She looked beautiful.
But what I disagree with is the comment made about the Princess Royal. Hardly fair when she is without a shadow of a doubt the most hardworking royal.

It's listed under the Queen for today's events, but it doesn't exactly say she's coming. I think if she was there, she would have been front and center in Pic 1.

Royals in uniform at the Royal Garden Party. Does anyone know what rank the Earl or Wessex holds in the RN. Princess Anne is still holding her handbag incorrectly, what are her advisors doing?

The Earl of Wessex is wearing a Royal Fleet Auxilliary uniform, as he is their commodore-in-chief. The insignia is that of a Captain, which makes sense, as it's the naval equivalent of a Colonel, which is what Colonels-in-Chief not holding higher rank wear (even Her Majesty! I was surprised to find that out when I saw her uniform at the Guards Museum in London).

Having been in the unenviable position of having to cart one of those inelegant "manbasher's" around for twenty odd years I can say, without much fear of contradiction, that those Handbags/USK's were all designed by military men as a penance for women who dared tread in a mans world. OK, so that was many moons ago but any past or present member of the armed forces will tell you that it takes years to propose any sort of alteration to any part of 'The Uniform". Then comes the design, followed by the obligatory unsatisfactory prototype, followed by the . . . . . . . . .

You will notice that the Princess Royal has just clutched the bottom of the bag so when the overlong sholder-strap falls off (as they are wont to do), she isn't reduced to inelegantly grubbing around on the ground to retrieve it before some gentleman steps on it, gets tangled in previously mentioned overlong strap and collapses in a very UNceremonious way to the ground.

As to Princess Anne's advisors? They are looking at each other as they wipe the sweat from their collective brows, muttering about having dodged another bullet!

Edward holds the rank of Commodore-in-Chief, Royal Fleet Auxiliary. As MARG has said, those blooming handbags are an absolute nuisance and I don't know of anyone brave or foolish enough to reprimand the Chief Commandant for Women in the Royal Navy over a silly bag!

I think those might be from yesterday. I know that a few pictures of Sophie Wessex from the garden party on the 22nd were posted in the British Royal Family thread, but I haven't seen any of HM yet.

Hmm... I imagined how nice this dress would look like, if it wasn't that short and not looking so widely on her shoulder-area... I think green suits her well. I always found, that green is a nice colour for red-haired woman.

According to some sources, only the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Duke of Kent were there, HM was not there.
