By my eye Charles is wearing the uniform of Field Marshall of the British Army

I love these- best photos of the day- especially 4 and 6 -William with the kids.
And William being William and doing what he does best- listening with his heart. Some of those kids probably lost parents. William knows about that.
Nice that on a busy day he was there, and didn't rush. But then it's William so not surprising.
My father is a retired veteran, so I understand a little about sacrifice. And it hits close to home. But still seeing people without limbs makes it even more so, and there is something about seeing faces with names in the newspaper. God bless them, and thank you.
Loved seeing the Queen get a bouquet from the 2 little girls. Granny moment.

It is disappointing that there are such few pictures of Charles and Camilla today.

I think she leaned on Philip's hand at least once before when leaving St. Paul, years ago. I can't remember the event. Maybe the Golden Jubilee.

Charles looked very Kingly today. He wear suits very well, but when he's in his uniforms, I see King Charles.

You're right. The parade was like a vision of the next reign.

Charles and Camilla don't sell - and that is all that it is about - The Queen being the Queen and old and frail sells because she is The Queen while William and Kate sell because they are the younger ones but Charles and Camilla don't sell so fewer pictures.

Even when Charles is King the photos will still focus on William and Kate.

Firstly the Queen is not frail and secondly there were many pictures of Charles and Camilla.

You are right that pictures of Charles and Camilla don't sell as much as pictures of William and Kate, but I don't think Charles cares about that.

First off, thanks to all for the links, videos and pictures. Very much appreciated!!

Second, as bittersweet as it is to see HM needing a helping hand down those stairs, at the same time it is also a sweet picture of a husband knowing his wife needs a little help and doing just that. Thought both The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh looked really good today.

Oh and am I the only one who when hearing that fanfare before God Save The Queen instantly straightens up because of what's about to be played? I was watching the Diamond Jubilee Service w/my Sister and Brother in law when it got to that portion of the Service. I had been curled up on my side on the couch, but when the first notes of it was played, I right away shot up into a ram rod straight sitting position. Poor Carmen asked me what was going on, but by that time, God Save The Queen had started.

Just wondering if I'm the only one. :)

That Roll Call w/The Daily Mail article...God Bless Them and their Families and Friends. I said it before, numbers of those killed in Afghanistan are just that : Numbers. That Photo Role Call though, that makes it real and...:(

May they all Rest in Peace. :(

If I didn't know better when I saw the Daily Mail headlines. I thought William and Kate where King and Queen.

The Queen is clearly frail - as are most 88 year olds. She walks very slowly, needs help down stairs, is bent over badly - all signs of her being frail and slowing down - as she should be doing at her age. Frail does not equal ill.


The DM knows that William and Kate sell and will get more clicks so leads with them as that will generate income whereas the rest of the royals don't sell in anywhere near the same numbers and so less revenue and that is all that the media care about - money.


Charles and Camilla don't sell so a few photos of them but lots of Kate and some of William as they are the pin-ups of the royal family these days.

I disagree with you as usual. The Queen have knee problems, but she is not frail and she does not walks very slowly. She is bent over, but not badly.

This video is from June 2014 and that's how she walks today. This is not a frail 88 year old.

Watch from 3:00.

At least there were some photos of Charles & Camilla. Poor Andrew, Edward, Sophie, Anne & Tim don't even get a mention never mind a photo except where they can't be cropped out.

I'm a person with knee problems and stairs are not my friend. I either need an arm to hold onto or a guard rail when confronted with steps. With the Queen, I think its bothersome knees that give her problems but the rest of her still goes at full steam. Amazing woman for her age.

Last year we saw Charles stand in for the Queen during part of the ceremony for the Order of the Bath as it was decided that the up and down the steps part would be uncomfortable for HM.

Plus with the Bath service, she would had to do the stairs in full regalia with a robe. No wonder she skipped it.
