That is not how they dressed while battle but it is how dressed while in London.

I like the classy uniforms. The soldiers looked sharp on and off the battle field.

No, it is not an off duty uniform! There is no off duty uniform.

Most officers were aristocrats or landed gentry, the rest tended to be professional people, for whom a suit and bowler would have been normal London street wear For many 'ordinary' soldiers it was their 'Sunday best'.

Thank you, and that's exactly what I said. Suits and bowler hats was what you wore when you were walking around town going about your business.

Indeed you did, but I think a couple on here misunderstood your, to me, very clear post. It was also what the country men wore on a sunday, after they had finished work and were perhaps going to the public house or their church.

That was back when men were expected to dress like gentlemen. Don't get me wrong, I like guys in casual clothes, but there's nothing quite like a guy in a well-made suit. Fortunately for William and Harry, they'll never have to worry about ill-fitting clothes.

How so funny about Harry's hair getting cut a little bit too much.

According to tradition, umbrellas are carried but must not be unfurled, meaning the siblings were soon soaking wet as they walked the half-mile route. The grim weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the royal soldiers, though, who joked with army pals and veterans before the start of the march.
It sounds like the princes had a fun day at the march.

We hear these stories frequently. I can't imagine that they would be signing up using their real names or anything close to it on these kinds of sites. Anyone can sign up using any name they want.

In fact because of the warnings the police in our area give about these kinds of sites, my teenagers and their friends don't use their real names or provide any factual information about where they live or go to school. They are also cautious about who they communicate with.

^I agree with you. He is a really private person so I cant imagine him doing that. I think its all facebooks work, trying to make good publicity.

The facebook account is gone now. So I guess we'll never know. It gave a lot of publicity to facebook for a few hours though.
