Great Pictures as always.
I don't understand why our King is at the Queen's left side and her Husband the Prince Consort on Her right side.
Normally A Reigning King has "pré- séance" regarding a Prince Consort.

Maybe they were just balancing it out- 2 monarchs in the center flanked on either side by a Royal Duke

Skippyboo is right. The 2 sovereigns are in the middle. King Philippe, as a gentleman, is left from the lady. The custom derives from the very old days when the cavalier was expected to defend the lady with his sword he pulled with his right hand! The Queen, as a woman, as a longserving head of state, stands right (she always sits right in a coach, a limousine. Pr. Philip sits left to her in the house of Lords when she opens parliament, for instance. Only Exception: The Queen rides into the city of London in a ceremonial procession. For purely practical reasons the Queen sits on the left side so she might have no difficulties in reaching for the sword the Mayor of London holds to her to touch). The 2 royal Dukes are, of course, junior to the Queen and King Philippe, so they flank them.
The same system goes for state banquets: The heads of state sit in the middle while lower ranking persons sit beside (the lower degreed, the further away from the heads of state).

I'm no expert but this is interesting. HMQ attended an event hosted by her grandsons William and Harry. Wow!!

Wording directly from the Court Circular.

Kensington Palace
6th November, 2014
The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales this evening held a Reception at Buckingham Palace to thank those involved in the medical care, recovery and rehabilitation of British Servicemen and Servicewomen.
The Queen, The Duke of York and Princess Alexandra, the Hon Lady Ogilvy were present.


Never seen this before. I expect some more experienced peeps will come along and rain on my parade but I think it is great that HMQ came to W/Hs event.

I think this is a signal of taking the work of her grandsons very serious and that she truely respects them.
Her Majesty certainly knows that, in the next few years, she and her husband will more and more withdraw, while the younger generations will steadily increase their duties within the monarchy.

The Queen, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace last night for those responsible for the care, recovery and rehabilitation of British servicemen and women and veterans in recent conflicts. The 400 guests also included field hospital staff, critical care teams who carry out evacuations of soldiers back to the UK, specialists from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where casualties are treated, and consultants from Headley Court-
