The Queen has paid tribute to First World War volunteers today at the Royal Hospital Chelsea during a Solemn Drumhead Service of Remembrance.
She was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh the Earl of Wessex, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra for the service, held on the 100th anniversary of the assassination which helped spark the conflict.
Wearing a Stewart Parvin lilac double crepe wool coat with a funnel collar, Stewart Parvin floral print dress and hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan with flowers in it to match, the Queen braved the rain to watch the ceremony.

BTW, YRH, you look like you have been sucking lemons.

Was that really called for? We all know William is uncomfortable at events like this and he's still pretty new to doing the Order services compared to the other Senior Royals. Give him some time. He's also far more at ease when Kate is there w/him for the more formal events and she wasn't there, so no surprise he looked tense today.

On a more positive note, that picture of him and Anne in the car is lovely. Also, could the DoE please share his secret for how he has the stamina and energy he's got!?! He truly is one of a kind and God Bless him!!

When did Anne get the Thistle and is there any reason why Andrew and Edward have never been given it? Is it likely they will be given it?

Anne has always been the royal most associated with Scotland e.g. she is the Patron of the Scottish Rugby and regularly attends their games and cheers for Scotland. She sent both her children to school in Scotland and is the royal still most involved with Gordonstoun School.

Will Andrew and Edward ever get it? Up to The Queen and as she made them wait into their 40s for the Garter it is possible that they will never get the Thistle. Then again she might give it to them next year - we don't know. As younger sons they will always get fewer honours etc than the heir - and Harry will be the same - get less than William simply because he is the younger of the two brothers.

It is splendid that three generations of the British Royal Family attended the Knights of the Thistle service.

I like that "I Was Glad" was played when The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh entered St Giles' Cathedral. It's such a grand song.

Yes. He was given it in 1977. Remember that his title in Scotland is HRH The Prince Charles, The Duke of Rothesay. Interestingly, unlike the Garter, it isn't automatic for the heir apparent.
