I'm not sure if there is a thread for the Epsom Derby but as more than one member of the family attend I figured I would put it in here.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are due to attend today when they arrive back from France. The show has started with the first race at 13.35, but the Queen will likely be there for the Investec Derby, which is the final race.

Seen in the box during the playing of the National Anthem, which is always played at the start of Derby Day, are Princess Alexandra of Kent with Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. They are likely the only other family members to attend.

Lovely images and I especially love the images of The Queen and Andrew speaking to a man on the TV via the internet. I often wonder what the Queen's generation thinks of modern technology as they have seen the invention of so many things in the last 100 years.

Love the pictures. HM looks exactly like my late Granny did- they were a year apart in age, whenever I tried to show her what I could do on the computer - really dazed. And now with my iPad and Kindle- she would be floored.
Whereas it would be really fun to show Prince William, my IPad , and the special voice activation features , that allow me to send emails, post on forums, and surf the web completely independently.
I think he would get it.

Probably similar to Robert Hardy's reaction in this article. They are one year apart in age- like my late Granny and HM.
RH was born in October 1925- my late Granny in February of that year.

The Duke of Edinburgh has attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace this afternoon, as part of celebrations for his 93rd birthday. The Duke, who is the longest serving consort in British history and the oldest serving partner of a reigning British monarch, was accompanied by Her Majesty the Queen and Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge. The party follows on from a 62-gun salute at the Tower of London earlier in the day, in honour of His Royal Highness’ birthday-

I agree, Nico.

It's always stumped me why Alexandra has had so little in the way of press attention. I mean, she really is not very well known in the UK, certainly among my generation (in my 30s). I think if you showed 100 people around my age her picture, I'd be surprised if more than a handful would know who she is. She is vastly underrated.

To those who can remember, was she very well-known when she was younger? Or has she always been on the fringes as it were?

Princess Alexandra and many older members of the royal family had a great deal of press attention back in the day. As time pass and they age, the attention very naturally focus on the younger royals. The wonderful work Her Royal Highness undertake don't go unnoticed though.

Princess Alexandria and Princess Margaret were big in the sixties. By the time of the silver jubilee, Charles and Anne were adults and the focus shifted to the Queen's children instead of sister and cousins.

Princess Alexandra is a wonderful royal - very chic, very elegant. She disappeared for a while last year because of ill health but I'm so glad she is back.

If you want to how how to rock a hat - she's the one! And she's 77

Thanks all for your replies! I suppose it's natural that the attention stays with the young, particularly in these times when age discrimination against those of an older age is so rampant.

Alexandra was also rocking some pretty impressive jewellery today!

The Prince of Wales stepped back in time this afternoon, when he met Red Cross nurses and volunteers at a Buckingham Palace garden party today. Charles – who is President of the British Red Cross Society – joked with modern-day volunteers dressed in vintage nurses uniforms, as the organisation celebrates more than 150 years of service, and its contribution during the First World War, 100 years ago-
