According to the story Prince William joined his father at Balmoral for the annual Ghillies Ball, which is thrown for the staff of the royal residence.

Has anyone heard anything about the US State Visit?
It’s October already and nothing has been announced. I assumed the visit would be in 5-6 weeks, seems a bit late for announcing.

I don’t think they would cancel the trip, William would just go alone. Anyway, this trip was announced for November, there’s every indication that Kate will be ok by then and able to make it. I also expect the Cambridges to be involved with the state visit.

The official word is that the US-UK state visit has been postponed until sometime in 2018. That is all the information available.

I'm really (and I mean really) waiting for news about that too.

Some facts/possibilities:

1. If the November tour will be to the Scandinavian countries, then I think (as I wrote in the ''Harry: Official Visit to Denmark'' thread) that it's a very rich and extremely beautiful little country in the north who stands outside the EU who will be the main target of this charm offensive by the British government. By that I mean Norway of course.

2. And I don't know how likely it is with a Cambridge tour to Denmark right after Harry's trip.

3. I don't think the November tour will be called off due to Kate's H.G. If Kate can't go, then William (as Princess Larisa wrote) would just go by himself as he did when he went to Japan and China.

I wonder if there will be a different State Visit in late November instead? Don’t know how likely that would be, guess it depends on when they knew of the cancellation.

I might be wrong, but I just assumed they would do two countries with 2-3 days in each, like their tour of Poland and Germany. Going by what William said, Norway and Sweden seem likely to me with maybe Finland also included.

Isn't it kinda odd that they are having Harry solo going to Scandinavia then less than a month later the Cambridges going?

The only major state event scheduled for this year would be the Diplomatic Corps Reception in December. The US State Visit penciled in to 2018.

How is 2 days in Copenhagen=Scandinavia? It like saying because the Cambridges went to Paris in March, there is no need for them to go to Germany and Poland is July. They don't announce the specifics of a tour until right before a tour. It's a high terror threat environment in Europe right now so they aren't going to give the terrorists a 2 month head start on where the VIPs are going to be.

William said Norway at the garden party. So it's probably Norway and it's closest neighbors of Sweden and/or Finland.

1. Agree, but he also said ''we are going to do a Scandinavian trip''.

2. Scandinavia consists of the countries: Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

3. So if they are going to visit Finland as well, then it will be a Nordic tour, not Scandinavian.

The Duke of Kent, also representing The Duchess of Kent, was present

I am not sure that this is the right thread, but I wonder if anyone can answer a few questions. I assume that Craithie is an active church. Do other people attend services with the royals. If so, is it by invitation or can anyone go?

I so love the relationship between HM and Lady Sarah. I found Sarah's interviews in The Queen at 90 to be the most touching.

That's one of the most ignorant articles I've seen, and yes, I know it's the fail:
Quote:
The 91-year-old travelled with a royal aide in the cortege; husband Prince Philip, 96, was not in attendance
1. That's Lady Sarah Chatto, not an aide.

2. Philip has already left.

Yes, the locals and staff go to church there as well.
