Video:
The Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, has presented a new Standard to the Household Calvary at Horse Guards Parade this morning. The Queen and Prince Philip inspected the troops from the comfort of the state limousine. A spokeswoman from Buckingham Palace said that an open-top vehicle would have been used, had the weather been better-

Thanks Dman. Can anyone explain what's happening in this photo? http://cache4.asset-cache.net/gc/494...L%2fwjog%3d%3d Retiring the old flag, maybe?

And that headline from ITN is misleading, the Queen and the Duke watch the parade, standing, from under a tent. The headline makes it sound much less active than it was.

This is known as a "Drum Head Service" - takes the place of an altar on the battlefield. The new colours/standard are blessed by the padre/vicar. If you have ever watched the Service of Remembrance from the Albert Hall, the evening before Remebrance Sunday, they establish a drumhead prior to the prayers.

New standards are normally issued every 10 years. This is new standard for the Household Cavalry

Where does it say the Gloucester's are attending?

I imagine a lot of the Royals will attend just like they did for the Olympics. Edward and Sophie will be there a lot as Edward is Vice Patron of the Commonwealth Games Association. They were seen a lot when they were in Manchester in 2002.

Royals at today's Buckingham Palace garden party: Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall, Countess of Wessex

Video:
Home - ITNSource News
A rainy downpour left the Queen looking at the heavens as her Buckingham Palace garden party guests sheltered under their umbrellas this afternoon. Leaden skies had brought the heavy shower soon after the summer event began in the garden of the Queen's London home. It was not only the guests who opened their brollies against the rain but the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and the Earl and Countess of Wessex who had joined the Queen on the Palace's lawns-

There is something about Sophie...so elegant, so classy. The Duchess of Cornwall seems to make everyone around her feel at ease. So it rained? They got to see the Royals and enjoy themselves. :-)

Sophie and Catherine are among my favorites within the royal family. The rain don't put a damper on this parade.

The Earl of Wessex, representing HM The Queen, is visiting Poland on 4 and 5 June, to take part in the official commemorations of the 25th anniversary of the first (partially) free elections in Poland (and maybe some other engagements on 5 June, as the anniversary celebrations are scheduled for today only). Other royal guests include the King and Queen of Belgium and Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Besides that, several dozen of republican heads of state and government, including President Barack Obama of the United States.
