When I look at pictures of a polo match, I am also so impressed by the horses. Amazing performances by the animals IMHO. Imagine being Harry's Horse as his rider leans hard left at speed (to try to dislodge Wills) as both horses are pounding shoulder by shoulder.

These are some of the best images I have ever seen. If I were Kate, I would want a huge print of the third image -the power, strength and expression are wonderful

What an absolutely lovely young girl; no wonder Harry and William were smiling so broadly at her. What a nice memento for her.

That article is super misleading because it mentions nothing about who's actually going to attend this year, probably nobody other than The Duke of Kent.

But some lovely info on the royal box, concessions, ladies hats and bowing/curtseying that I did not know.

Yesterday, July 5, Queen Elizabeth and the Earl of Wessex visited the Thistle Foundation at Wighton House in Edinburgh on the occasion of its 70th anniversary and they attended a service to mark the 60th anniversary of the Robin Chapel in Edinburgh.

How lovely of Edward to join his mother on a few engagements to fill in for Prince Philip. Lovely photos, iceflower! :d

As engagements are arranged at least 6 months in advance and that Edward has done engagements at Holyrood House himself this week, alone, I suspect either they knew back in February that Philip needed the surgery (not likely) or it has been a lucky break for The Queen that Edward was scheduled to be at Holyrood the same week - which is the more likely. Still lovely to see them together of course.
