There's a very nice picture of Princess Anne in this article:

She is wearing navy. Pink and Navy is a classic combo

I don't know but Anne's fashion choices have nothing to do with her father being in the hospital.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, looked great. At the same time, I am surprised to learn that Prince and Princess Michael attended the garden party. I wonder who invited them.

I agree. The woman is elegance personified, pretty much all the time.

The Queen (she's the host). She invites a range of family members who also meet and talk with the visitors. Normally there are 6-8 members of the BRF present at a garden party.

Everybody but William and Harry did garden party duty. The first one was Charles, Camillia, Kate & the Gloucesters. The next was the York trio and Anne & Tim . Last one Ed, Sophie and the Kents.

Harry has been to one garden party, I think. William last attended one with his father in Scotland in 2002. It's been a while for both.

I was just referring to the garden party this year not historical attendance. It does appear that William isn't the biggest garden party fan. You would think that he could have gone to both centerpoint and the party that Kate went to since the garden party was in the late afternoon if he wanted to.

Some TRF members never fail to emphasise that Prince and Princess Michael are the members of the extended family and of no importance.

Andrew and his daughters went to a different garden party as did other members of the Royal Family. Why shouldn't Prince & Princess Michael be invited if the Queen wants to invite them.

She has always invited them to royal events, she invites them to Ascot & she invites Michael to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph each year. He is a Prince of the United Kingdom and the grandson of a Monarch, no different to Princes William and Harry at this stage.

They are not all available all of the time. And this is an important message because the "lesser" royals" are needed to cope with events such as Garden Parties. Each GP has 2,500 people (it isnt 8,500 - thats the total over all). They dont talk to everyone but they still need c 6-8 royals in order to cope. Personally, I think they need more like 10-12.

The Guests

"Approximately 8,000 guests attend each garden party" - so in fact they actually need about 20+ royals !!

On June 4, the Duke of Edinburgh as Past Master and Elder Brother of the Corporation, together with Princess Anne as current Master and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence attended a Corporation of Trinity House Younger Brethren's Dinner at Trinity House in London.
