Quite a beautiful Service!! I'm shocked once again to see how Her Majesty looks younger than her daughter.... HRH really needs a fashion advisor. Where did she take that hat???? Sophie doesn't seems in a good mood. I hope everything is going well for her.

A truly remarkable man to honor, and what a lovely service it appeared by all accounts to be.
Her Majesty just looked wonderful--as usual. I think I'm seeing Princess Anne showing a stronger resemblence to Princess Margaret than I remember in the past. I don't care for the cravat, or the hat--but I do like Princess Anne so even though she can appear unpolished, I find that it endears her to me and makes her quite charming at times. It completely suits her personality that she could care less about clothes. Still, a nice black suit would have been nice with pearls and a nice brooch.
Sophie, Sophie, Sophie. What a hat. She needs to take a cue from her mother and sister in-law. That hat had too much going on for a funeral.

I used to wear a lot of those bow ties... in the 1980s. And whoever said Anne looked like a stewardess was right IMO. And why couldn't Sophie have produced a black hat?? It looked as if she had had to scramble for a hat at the last moment. Hmmm.

yes it seems abit strange that she came out of maternity leave for this service yet couldnt go to meet the President and Firts Lady of France - make up your Sophie are you coming back to work or just choosing the events you want to go to. (She must have had a black hat somewhere in her vast collection - showed a distinct lack of respect and that hat needs
put on a bonfire IT WAS ONE OF THE WORST)

The Countess of Wessex seems to be trying out hats for Royal Ascot. Dunno who told her that would be appropriate...perhaps she thought she was meeting the Nicholas de Sarkozy instead? ;-)

I thought her name was down to attend anyway, so it shouldn't have been last minute, besides which, she always wears those ghastly flowerpots.

Everyone has at least 2 or 3 black hats at the ready, don't they?

Very, very strange choice of hat on Sophie's part. I can't imagine what possessed her to wear it.

As her flowerpot hats go, I don't mind it - at least it doesn't have a whole bantam or cabbage glued to the side - but it had no place with that black outfit and on that occasion.

Last week, William, Harry and Kate attended The Wibble: a charity event hosted by Guy Pelly, Susanna Warren and Jamie Murrary Wells, to raise money for the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund. Henry was killed in a car accident during his gap year and the Fund supports the school in Uganda he was to volunteer at.
Also, in attendance were Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, with her boyfriend, David Clark.

This case seems to have been going on forever.

Here in Australia there was no "black-out" on who the Royal is

King Abdullah and Queen Rania have begun working visit to the UK on June 3. it is yet unclear wheather they would meet any member of the Royal Family (nothing can be found in the Royal Calendar), and it does appear to be just a working visit. So far, they have met with PM Gordon Brown.

Nevertheless, you can find the thread here, if you are interested, you can find the thread here.
