I'm not sure about why Princess Alexandra is doing royal duties, but according to Princess Alice's autobiography it seems to have been decided that the younger son of the Duke of Gloucester would be free to live his own life while the older son would be expected to take up royal duties. That didn't last long because the older son was killed so the younger son was then expected to drop his plans to become an architect and join the royal "firm" as a full-time member. The same probably applied to the sons of the Duke of Kent, although of course the elder son inherited the dukedom as a child. I'm not sure about the thinking behind Princess Alexandra doing royal duties, except that she was very popular. Perhaps the thinking was that she wasn't going to have a career so she could do royal duties till she married and had children or something.

Normally it is the Queen who performs this, strange Her Majesty does not attend this year.

HMQueenElizabethII , I had not thougt about that, well, it's strange, but fortunately the Queen has such good deputies..

Romy, thanks for the lovely family pic, it shows once more how Ella has
changed and it's also a nice pic as to Fred's intense look

Here are two pics from 1993:

The last two pictures you've posted are very nice to compare, Iceflower,
as you wrote they were both taken in the year 93, but the styles are
so different, conservative on the second, but very "hot" on the first as
to the dress.
Here is one of the couple with Queen Mom at a horse race

Thank you for the pictures iceflower.

At her age, with her hair thinning, she needs to ensure it is tied back or up.

The prince seems to have aged tremendously with his almost white beard. the princess is not far behind him despite her efforts whatever they may be.
