L9I don't think it would be taken well by the British. Especially not with this timing. He finally is working as a full-time royal and would take months off just to be with his family?

He didn't need to recover from labour nor does Louis depend on him for breastfeeding. So, equality sounds nice and fathers definitely need more opportunities to spend time with their families. However, it wouldn't be equal to give the father's the same treatment as the mothers who just gave birth and have a baby that depends on them for milk (in most cases) especially in the first few months. Splitting additional parental leave is different but these first few months are a necessity imo for mother and child.

Let’s move on from the discussion of Kate’s maternity leave (and William’s lack of paternity leave), which is off topic to this thread.

Our matchless Queen looks great, and that smile of hers can melt icebergs.

The Queen and the Duke of Kent meeting some of the RSDGs (Edward's old regiment where he served for 20 years and he had his Lt Colonels uniform on. Must have been weird for him what with them carrying their Icon of the Tsar around everywhere looking like his brother



ETA nice touch with her wearing grey for the day

Thanks Rudolph & iceflower!

So, here she is again in full regalia/robes on what I understand is a very hot day in Edinburgh, not bad at 92.
And when you think about it, most 92-year-olds would never have managed to pull that off, would they? - Yes, she is used to it, but she doesn't wear it that often, so hats of to her (again).

All I could think of watching the video is that with all that regalia on and in the heat, it must be pretty draining. On top of that, all that regalia adds extra weight that puts more pressure on the knees. I cringed when HM approached the steps but down them she went with grace and dignity.

How nice was it that she was accompanied by William at her side and riding with her in the car. They had a lot to catch up on after William's Middle Eastern tour but just seeing grandmother and grandson together was heartwarming.

Anne looked every bit as regal. Quite the family outing in Scotland.

I have always loved the gorgeous robes of the Order of the Thistle (since I had a collecting doll of the Queen wearing the gorgeous velvet train) But how heavy that train must be, and she carries this off along with the other regalia with such aplomb. Some lovely footage in the car with William as they drive away looking happy, and as said previously, Anne looks so regal.

QEII carries this off with pages. Literally.

And the Thistle is my favorite of the Robes for Orders!
