My understanding is that they took the Royal Train to Leicester, which would be a first for Catherine. However, from all the media reports, it sounds more like they took an ordinary scheduled train. Can anyone clear up my confusion?
Everyone, including me, assumed that they would take the Royal Train, but they actually travelled on a normal scheduled service. Given the expense involved in taking the RT out, I'd say HM will use it less than during her Golden Jubilee.

Kate would have to be pretty brave to give HM fashion tips. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation!

personally, I like to think that during the fashion show - Kate was leaning over and pointing out some lovely pieces that the Princess Royal might enjoy

I like the outfit but feel it was spoilt by the dress/skirt being too too short!

I love the pictures of Catherine and Her Majesty interacting with children. The kids are smiling like they've just won the lottery .

It's wonderful to see the family working together, especially during such a big year. I'm happy to see Catherine fitting in; at times it seems like she's been there all along, because the transition is so seamless. Now I'm really excited about the engagement with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Thank you to everyone for great pictures and videos.

There's a lovely article from Robert Hardman in the Daily Mail, about how they liked seeing Catherine but it was really The Queen they came to see.

The article mentioned by Lumutqueen. It's indeed a rather nice article.

They loved Kate but it was the lady in cerise they REALLY came to see


Quote:
Trying to reflect the full span of the Queen’s reign and of those who have lived within it is the monumental challenge of this Jubilee. So she had invited a more recent royal recruit along to join her and Prince Philip for Day One.
And for the Duchess of Cambridge – who told one onlooker that she is missing her Falklands-based Prince ‘terribly’ – here was a perfect tutorial from the master.

Thanks for these! One thing I admire about The Duchess of Cornwall is that she always looks pleased to be there, wherever she might be.

Very colorful ensemble of people there. Which church is that? I love the way the intensity of the shades worn by HM and the Duchess of Cornwall coordinate so well - that's the way to do pink and purple!

I agree with you. I think it is really as important attribute for a "senior" royal to appear to be delighted to be someplace.

Lovely images, and Her Majesty and the Duchess of Cornwall looked absolutely splendid in their bright colors. I love the royal purple on Camila, along with her genuine smile.

Another family event! I just love these; hope they'll continue doing some even after the Jubilee celebrations.
- The Queen looked marvellous; pink really suits her.
- The Duchess of Cornwall was equally brilliant in purple. Love the hat and the brooch!
- The Countess of Wessex looked lovely. Not very keen on the hat, but otherwise just beautiful.

It was great to see the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales so happy and at ease.
Mind you, the royal ladies appeared to have fun as well; I just love this picture of Her Majesty!

I love your commentary . I agree about Sophie's hat. It's a bit...strange. I love the smiles on everyone's faces. The last picture of Her Majesty is extremely endearing.
