A bit odd. You have linked to another Messageboard - no Earl and Countess of Wessex with Lady Louise. Is it a mistake?

I'm having the same issue as you. This link was posted on another thread as well, and even though some pictures pop up, none of them are of the Earl, Countess or their daughter.

I have not seen the link but if you did abit of search on the site of AP Images, there were about 3 photos, including one of Lady Louise walking with the Earl, and little bit glimpse of Sophie at the back, of course beautifully as usual with her updo hair.

Sorry about the mess-up with the links, but i was having trouble, it was a total mistake on my part; i'm glad some of you found the pics of Earl and Countess with Louise at the horse Pageant.

Thanks for that. I had no clue where to look when I first clicked on the link that was provided.

Anyway, Louise looks lovely in the tartan coat. I believe it's the same one she wore on Christmas Day at Sandringham. I can only imagine how much she enjoyed herself, since she appears to enjoy being around horses as well as riding them. It's also lovely that she's feeling better after her fall several weeks back.

i'd say because he is too young to sit still the whole evening. if you look at the horse show pictures, you see he's always moving

I think that we don't see James because he's too young to be asked to sit through something that is this long (even though from the short video someone shared, it looked like it was a really fun and engaging program). Louise is eight and a half years old, and therefore, has a better understanding of what a royal engagement is and how to behave during one. Perhaps we'll see more of James when he gets to be closer to his sister's age.

I agree that it is is probably to do with James' age, and from the images from the Horse Show he can't even sit through that! What a dude. Last year when Sophie was attending an engagement a fan of the family said that soon James would be attending Trooping the Colour and Sophie, and the man behind her, both winced! I reckon James is perhaps a bit of a trouble maker/typical little boy who loves to run around and does not enjoy sitting still. Little boys are a lot different than little girls, I have to say. Louise attended Peter's wedding when she was 4 1/2, she was obviously able to sit through the ceremony, but she is a little girl who was probably fascinated by the lights and pretty dresses, and the story of "We got married her too". I often wondered why Louise attended that wedding at the age of 4, yet James does not even attend Easter, but after thinking about it, he is a boy who would want to run around.

I DO have hopes that James will make an appearance on the balcony this year, as Louise did that when she was 5 1/2. It's not every year your grandmother celebrates 60 years as a Monarch, and these celebrations will likely not happen again for a long time. I hope we do see the four of them on the balcony, it would be so cute.

I'm crossing fingers and hoping that they would let him to be seen on the balcony

There are a few more images of Edward, Sophie and Louise attending the Diamond Jubilee Pageant on 11.5.12. Apparently the pageant is being shown on ITV next month. I like that the members of the family arrive by carriage into the arena, how regal.

Did James attend the Royal Windsor Horse Show this year? I remember seeing pictures of him last year at the event, but not this time around. I think the disposition of a child has a lot to do with his/her ability to sit through something. Louise strikes me as a child who can be coaxed into paying attention, but who will also let her energy out at the first possible opportunity. For instance, at last year's wedding, she was all proper during the ceremony, but then on the balcony, she was basically ready to jump out of her skin (not in a way that was inappropriate, but she was definitely more active). She's aware of her surroundings and can judge when she can let loose, so to speak. James may be a very active little boy, and therefore, may require breaks during something that lasts for longer than twenty minutes and has him sitting still. If he couldn't sit through the horse show, that may be the reason why. He needed a bit of a breather. We don't know how these children react to things like noise and big crowds, but those factors have a lot to do with children's behavior.

Like you, I hope to see James on the balcony this year. It would be a treat for him, and maybe the fact that they'll be watching a parade will keep him very, very engaged.

TheSpec - Rileys get royal treatment for 150th anniversary

The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry will mark its 150th anniversary with a royal visit.

Prince Edward, the Queen’s youngest son and seventh in line to the throne, will visit the regiment Sept. 15 as part of what is believed to be a 10-day tour of Canada with his wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

Very exciting for Canada. Your country has been getting quite a few royal visits in the past two years, it would seem .

Yes, rarely does a year go by when some member of the family is not visiting although some visits are rather low profile. Edward is here pretty regularly usually in connection with the DoE awards. Andrew comes either for a military connection or in relation to Lakefield College where he was at school.

It's so nice to see little James; it's rare that we get to see him. Both he and Louise are just adorable; I love her in her sunglasses and hat riding the carousel and eating ice cream. Thanks for posting, MagMil.
