For some reason, I find the scruffy shoes endearing. I'm not sure why.

As Harry has been struggling to pass the tests, I would have hoped he wouldn't take any chances of receiving another minus mark through having a positive for alcohol. It doesn't seem too much to ask that he remains alcohol free to achieve his goal.
Oh ok thanks for clearing it up Skydragon

You then upload images from your computer to the hosting account.
Photobucket automatically generates several codes which appear underneath the stored image. Just copy and paste the code labelled 'Direct Link' into the post. Done!
Thank you for that info Warren! In this particular case it's a 30 old book, so I doubt that Corbis or wherever would have it. Is it possible to scan and post photos from old books, if credit is given? If so, how would I go about it?

Me, too, Mermaid. Maybe we're both crazy, but I think maybe it shows that the wearer is more concerned with comfort and familiarity than flash...

Yes, many photos posted on the Forums are scanned images from magazines and books.
First scan the page, store the image in your computer picture library, then upload it to the image-hosting account (eg, Photobucket).
Then simply copy and paste the appropriate code into a post.

Because Photobucket (for example) is hosting the image and TRF is merely carrying the link, any copyright issue is between you, Photobucket and the copyright owner.

Citing the source of the original photograph is recommended for two reasons:
it is good internet etiquette, and it names the original publication for those members who may be interested in the book.

That could be, Ella Kay. We all have a pair of old shoes that we just can't part with. I normally wear my loafers for 10 years before consigning them to wet-weather/chores wear.

Oh man, she looks sooo familiar but I can't remember her name. I don't think its Edwina, or a Spencer cousin. I feel like she was linked to one of the prince's in the past. I hope someone can ID her b/c its going to bug me!

Anne is definitely a Scotland supporter, Harry & William support England.

The Calcutta Cup is the Rugby Union Trophy for the winner of the match between Scotland and England that is held every year.

But William is patron of the Welsh Rugby Union is he not?
That is some conflict of interest.

When the Calcutta Cup is being played, it is Scotland vs England, none of the other home nations compete in it.
