Thanks for that link, Marsel! I wonder why the photographers cropped him out of all the closer-up photos, especially since he was just to The Queen's right?

I love all the pictures of Charles and Anne having a grand time. They look like they had a good many laughs and a wonderful afternoon!

Thank you Marsel for the pictures.
Like Mother like son, I agree.
Ella Kay, possible the photographer doesn't think Prince Charles is very photogenic.

Could someone hazard a guess as to what the queen is doing in this picture?

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were joined by the Prince of Wales and the Princess Royal at the Braemar Gathering, the most high-profile of Scotland's Highland Games.

According to the caption, she's putting on lipstick.

Thanks for the pictures, queenofthelight!
I love this picture, and judging by the picture of Prince Charles, I'm not the only one who has caught a cold!

Marsel Thanks so much for the link. I was confused, but I take it that this is the end of combat operations from the first "Iraq' conflict in the early 1990's

I think it is the end of British operations in Iraq this time as all British troops have been withdrawn from Iraq. They were withdrawn by the end of July or early August as the Iraqi government didn't pass permission for them to stay, if my memory serves correctly.

No, I think it is to mark the current conflict in Iraq. Combat Actions officially ended in Iraq earlier this year. Withdrawal of combat troops has started and now the troops are there to train the Iraqi forces and help in rebuilding and peacekeeping.

The service is to mark the end of the British involvement in the 6 year conflict on 30th April 2009.

Thank you everyone for your info. That's very good news. I didn't know Iraq was anywhere near ready for the withdrawal of British combat troops.

Whether Iraq is/was ready is a mute point but the fact is that most countries have or are pulling out of Iraq.

Queen pays tribute to Iraq veterans at St Paul's

Quote:
They gave their lives for Queen and country.
And today the Queen paid tribute to that sacrifice when she joined dignitaries to remember those members of the Armed Forces who lost their lives in Iraq.

Veterans and bereaved families joined the Queen, Gordon Brown and senior military leaders for the poignant event held at St Paul's Cathedral.

Senior royals also took their place among the congregation, including the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Princess Royal.
Also present were significant figures who played important roles in the campaign, from ex-prime minister Tony Blair who led Britain into war to former heads of the Army Sir Mike Jackson and Sir Richard Dannatt. Leader of the Conservative party, David Cameron was also in attendance

More pictures can be found at Getty Images.
Pictures from Belga can be found here.

It is great to see that whatever their opinion of the war may be, British people are so clearly behind their brave soldiers. It was a wonderful and dignified service.
But, and I am really sorry if some people do not like this comment, I wish Blair and his wife refrained from attending.
