it is more likely to be Duke of Kent; would be surprised if it was the Duke of Windsor. And I think it is JUliana - thought so immediately

ETA: I think you are right and it is the Sultan of Brunei - well spotted!

@BBCPeterHunt:

What was all that stuff about the Duke of Edinburgh scaling back?

You would think that if he's going to go all that way, they'd at least slot in a few other bits and pieces? Maybe there'll be a reception or dinner with the regiment and their families as well?

I was thinking the same thing. Good grief! Flying all the way to Canada from the UK is hard on a lot of people let alone one that will approaching his 92nd birthday. I do imagine though that there will be some kind of dinner or reception going on as he's not going to fly all the way there, present the colors and hop the next plane back to the UK.

I really really do admire this guy's stamina!

Maybe that's the only 'official' engagement and he's going to meet up with some old friends or even old comrades? He usually fits in a Duke of Edinburgh's Award event when abroad, maybe he'll present a few gold awards?

I think the DoE is probably one of those people who, if they actually were to seriously slow down, would perhaps decline more quickly. You hear all the time about people who keep working past retirement age and then die not long after finally giving up work.

The DoE has seriously scaled back over the last decade. 10-15 years ago he regularly did over 600+ engagements a year and now is at about 300 - having halved his workload since his late 70s.

It's always so nice to see Investitures. I expect Jessica Ennis to get a Damehood at some point in the future. The Queen always looks so happy during these engagements.

#royal Buckingham Palace says The Queen has cancelled her visit to Swansea tomorrow as she suffering from symptoms of gastroenteritis

Queen cancels Swansea visit after suffering from gastroenteritis:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-s...wales-21635900

Rebecca English‏@RE_DailyMail
The Queen will remain at Windsor Castle to be assessed by doctors. Unusual for HM to cancel such high profile visit, so must be poorly

I hope Her Majesty get well soon.
