Ive read so many articles trying to find a pic of the duchess at the trafalger memorial service. Can you please post the watermark ones Beatrixfan. What are watermark pics anyway. If anyone has non watermark pics please post. Oh, and I was trying to say that maybe the younger royals sre very mature for their age and get along with Charles. Here is some other news.

King Federick and Queen Mary of Australia?

I realize this is on the wrong thread..but isn't Princess Anne a godmother to Prince Haakon....for that to be the case...at one time..there had to be some type of relationship. And if I am correct, the last time Queen Sonja came to London (I believe it was an exhibition of Queen Maud's clothes)..Princess Anne, Mette-Marit, and the Countess of Wessex were there and they all seemed quite comfortable with each other.

Even when Philip's sisters were alive Elizabeth rarely went to visit them, (Philip often did) his sisters did come to the UK and Elizabeth spent time with them. QE2 has cordial relationships with all the various royals brought about by official visits and the 2 Greek weddings she did attend in London. She also hosts various royals during the time they are in the UK (eg lunch before Charles' wedding blessing) but to say that she's good friends with any of them would be stretching it.
It isn't Tim Graham's book. I will go through my library and find the source.

I think Mette-Marit is comfortable with everyone, and Princess Ann doesn't care who anyone is-so she just sits back and enjoys herself, and the Countess of Wessex will talk to anyone.:)

Lady Sarah Chatto is one of really great support of Prince Charles about The Duchess of Cornwall, she used to encourage The Queen for that marriage lots.

I dont know much about Lady Chatto but I hear good things about her. Is she Princess Margerets daughter. Maybe she is a big supporter of Charles and Camilla because she knew the pain her mother went through not being able to marry who u love.

Hi Princejohnny25,

Yes, Lady Srarah is HRH the Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon's daughter & second child (Lord Linely being her older brother).

Private Lives

My observation on all of this is that people are judging the nature and strength of personal relationships based on photographs taken at public events.

We seem to be forgetting they have private lives as well, and that most of their contact and "interaction" would take place well out of the public spotlight.

To throw a question into the mix: "Who is Queen Elizabeth's best friend/closest confidante?"
Exclude her husband. If someone told us the (correct) answer we would quite possibly scratch our heads and ask "who's she?" (or he).

When it comes to the crunch we know very little about the private life of Queen Elizabeth. And the reason? She gives very little away, and those who know don't tell.

Maybe the Queen's closest confidante is her cousin, Margaret Rhodes. She was there during the death of the Queen Mother. Just a guess on my part. (Margaret's death, and the Queen Mother's, must have left a huge void in the Queen's life.)

I think she will probably wear a lot of her old things. Seeing as she wears her clothes over again.

The Duchess is very sensible when it comes to her fashion and reuse of clothes. But, I think they want to make an impression in America so we might see some great classic outfits comeback but I am expecting new ones for the State Visit. It is only right to get a new wardrobe for a state visit.

Damn, I thought they were going to do something at the World Financial Center where I work. Its right across from the World Trade Center site. But I checked the WFC calendar and nothing is on the November schedule. :(

I don't know where they're going to be at the WTC visit. Our building has the only decent sized atrium in the area. There's not much other than office buildings down here.

I don't expect them to put such visit on public bulletin board, even if it were to take place.

Well, Harrys Polo Shirt, the security is tight enough as it is now. :( but I'll get in to work extra early.

Incas, I hope you're right and they do visit us. I have my camera all ready.
