I would imagine that if the Queen is to be represented at the dutch wedding she may ask someone like Prince Michael or the Duke of Gloucester to attend with their wife.
I don't think Prince Michael or the Duke of Gloucester would represent the Queen at all at this occasion if she was invited. It would most likely be one of her own children. If Edward and Sophie are otherwise committed on this day, then it would be Prince Phillip, Charles, Andrew or even Anne.

I highly doubt that Queen Elizabeth would send one of her cousins to the wedding of a reigning sovereign's son. Whether Johan and Mabel's wedding is a low-key affair or not, Johan is still the son of the present Queen of the Netherlands. He is not, for example the nephew of the Queen.

I think there is a protocol (formally or not) in which the person represting one royal family at another royal family's occasion/event must "correspond" to the proximity of being in line to the throne or something like that.

In the Netherlands for example, if Queen Beatrix cannot attend say a special event that one of Queen Elizabeth's children is hosting, then one of her sons would go, and if none of them could make it, then her sister Margriet would represent her. But she would never say send Princess Margarita to represent her (for obvious reasons and otherwise).

Wessex baby faces surgery to save sight

NICHOLAS CHRISTIAN



THE baby daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex is set to have an operation to save her eyesight.

A rare condition, called exotropia, could leave six-month-old Louise blind in one eye unless surgeons can correct the defect.

Louise, who was born a month premature in an emergency Caesarean which threatened the life of her mother, is to undergo rigorous tests before specialists can perform the risky procedure.

Prince Edward and his bride Sophie first noticed that something might be wrong when Louise developed a pronounced squint soon after being born.

It is understood that the Queen has been informed and has offered her personal support to her grandson and his wife.

Louise has already had a tough time since she came into the world after a traumatic birth that at one stage threatened Sophie’s life.

Exotropia causes one eye to deviate from its normal position and look outwards, affecting the sufferer’s ability to focus. In some cases it leads to blindness.

A royal source said yesterday: "The squint is very noticeable and is causing the Wessexes huge concern. No one wants to see their child undergo an operation and Louise has already had a tough time coming into the world."

A few hours before Louise’s birth, Sophie collapsed at the couple’s home at Bagshot Park in Surrey.

In the subsequent confusion, there was a 30-minute delay before she was rushed to the nearby NHS Frimley Park Hospital.

There she underwent life-saving surgery to stop the haemorrhaging, during which doctors said she lost an estimated nine pints of blood before Louise was born at the fragile weight of just 4lb 9oz.

Edward and Sophie have been preparing for Louise’s christening at the private chapel at Windsor Castle on April 24.

Oh, dear. I hope Louise will be all right. This is such sad news! Especially following her already traumatic entrance into the World. Well, I'm glad they discovered this before it got too serious.

I really hope she gets better soon. I'd hate to think that life is a procession of needles and medicine...

Poor Wessex family. What a difficult first year Louise is having. But catching it in advance is a good thing.

Wessex baby may face treatment after doctors diagnose eye defect
By Caroline Davies
(Filed: 12/04/2004)


The five-month-old baby daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, who was born by emergency caesarean four weeks prematurely, may need medical attention after doctors discovered that she was suffering from a slight squint in one of her eyes.

Lady Louise Windsor is believed to be suffering from exotropia - an outward-turning eye - which may, if it does not self-correct, require surgery.


The condition is not uncommon in small children, but in extreme cases surgery is needed to correct the eye, to obtain three-dimensional vision and to prevent permanent vision loss.

Buckingham Palace would not comment on what is seen as a private medical matter. But a source indicated that speculation that Lady Louise could be left permanently blind in one eye was wide of the mark.

"She has astigmatism, which a lot of babies are born with. She's not about to lose her sight. It is a tiny squint, which may or may not correct itself. In most cases it does."

Lady Louise is otherwise believed to be doing very well after her traumatic birth on Nov 8. Doctors had to fight to save both mother and daughter and they were apart for two weeks.


The Queen attends mass at St George's chapel
Yesterday the Earl and Countess joined the Queen and Prince Philip at the traditional Easter Sunday service at Windsor Castle. Nine senior members of the Royal Family were present for the service at St George's chapel in the castle grounds, which was led by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Rev David Conner.

Around 200 members of the public gathered in the cold to see them arrive. Absent were the Prince of Wales and Prince William, who are in Scotland, according to Buckingham Palace, and Prince Harry, who is in southern Africa on his gap year.

The Duke of York is in Augusta for the US Masters golf championship.

First to arrive on foot was Prince Philip accompanied by the Princess Royal. They were joined by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Duke of York's daughters; the Princess Royal's husband, Commander Tim Laurence; and her son Peter Phillips.

Prince Philip departed five minutes before the congregation and some 35 minutes before the rest of the royal party emerged because of a horse carriage driving engagement - one of his favourite pastimes.

The rest of the party left together and went for drinks, as is customary, in the deanery. The Queen accepted a posy of flowers from Abigail Gainher, five, and her sister Natasha, seven.

I think these persons will sure be there:

-The Queen
-Prince Philip
- Prince Charles
- Prince William
- Princess Anne, her husband
-Zara Philipps
-Peter Philipps
-Prince Andrew
-Princes Beatrice
-Princess Eugenie
-Viscount Linley and wife
-Lady Helen Taylor


-Christopher and Mary Rhys-Jones
-David and Zara Rhys-Jones(with their children)

and of course her godparents and some friends...

Most royal baptisms are private in the UK. Lord Lichfield is taking the official photos,which will be released to the media after the event.
