Oops, my glance (I generally don't study a photo, I just look at it) at the photo of PoW on the motorcycle I thought it was a Harley-Davidson, which are commonly called "a Hog" here in the U.S. Something to do with the sound of the exhaust which resembles the deep rumblings of a big hog's rolling snort.

I never did figure out what make the motorcycle was.

Charles stood next to the Scottish Parliament's new Presiding Officer, the first time a woman has been in that role. On July 1st, the Queen will be opening the Fourth Holyrood Parliament.

But more of that later this week....

Love the DOC's outfit- especially the hat.
Love the POW's outfit- except the hat.
Charles looks about 101.

Camilla looks very smart in the Armed Forces Day photos. Charles is wearing a much prettier outfit though! Like so many birds, the male of the species has the bright colours and shiny feathers.

I'm not mocking him, just feeling light-hearted.

Thank you Daria! BTW, does Charles look 101 to you too?

Glad you liked my description (I was afraid that some may get offended, though no offense was meant). He does look really old, it's almost uncanny really.
