Those HQ pics are beautiful and the Scotsman video is great. Awesome when he sat in the "dentist" chair. Then they apologized because there were no drinks to serve.

Personally, I avoid reading about the Inquest. I will actively seek out anything to read other than about the Inquest. The first few days held an interest for me, but then it was overwhelmingly depressing. Reading too much about the last acts of people you know were speeding unknowingly toward their death cannot be healthy. It certainly is unpleasant, to say the least. Point is: The Royals don't have to work too hard to "divert" my attention.

Invited for high tea at Highgrove, home of the Princes William and Harry and their father the Prince of Wales, the band were underwhelmed by the food on offer.

I'm rather 'unimpressed' by this person's need to be derogatory about her visit!

What is even worse is that she "let it know to our hosts" that she didn't like the food. That is rude, in my opinion. One's hosts go to the trouble, or their staff does.... She didn't show any appreciation for being invited and served in this lovely home and meeting these amazing people. If I had the chance to talk to (more like, listen to) the Prince of Wales, I might not even notice the food.... even if it was delicious.

There is bike ride in France on May 26th. Do you think he will the ride?
I hope that Prince William would be able to do it meaning that it would not interfer his military duties.

While I do wish he would do something about it(I did think he looked alot better 6 years ago), if he's ok with it I don't get what the press are trying to do make him more insecure although I'm sure he's used to all this crap by now.

He's not heir presumptive. He's heir apparent to the heir apparent.

That's right the females are the heiress presumptive while the males are heir apparent.

Not always. During the reign of Edward VIII, his brother the Duke of York was heir presumptive.

Yeah, the Heir Apparent is the Eldest Son of the Monarch whose position in line of sucession cannot be superseded. The Heir/ess Presumptive is someone who could be superseded but who currently stands at the top spot, like an Eldest Daughter who would be ousted by the birth of a son, or like if a King has no children,then his eldest brother if he had one would be Heir Presumptive.

But I thought William was called Heir Presumptive to the Throne. Obviously I be wrong....

There can't be more then one heir apparent to the Throne, so obviously William is not one.
But at the same time, he can't be called heir presumptive, because heir presumptive is someone, whose position can be displaced by someone's birth or by someone, with a better claim to the throne. In case of William, no one can replace him and once his father is King, he will be Heir Apparent.
