It is the reversal of "Ladies chat while the men folk talk business.". He has been chatting up first ladies and queens for 60 years.

Good to see The Queen back on public engagements. I hope she's getting better.

The Queen can always accompany the visiting Head of State if she wants to. Just because she is female or her military positions are honorary doesnt mean she has to let her husband accompany the HoS. Queen Margrethe personally accompanies the visiting HoS.
So it is just an understanding between the couple, nothing they are bound to or imposed on them..

Primarily, HMQ is the Head of the Armed Forces. So she can and does inspect regiments and is the only person that can take a Royal Salute.

Actually I think anyone representing HM can take the Royal Salute. I know in Canada visiting members of the royal family, the Governor General and the provincial Lieutenant Governors all have done so.

Yup, but then they can receive Royal Salute only when they represent The Queen. I dont know about Governor Generals, but The Prince of Wales can always represent The Queen when she is very ill (I dread the day when Prince Charles has to take salute at Trooping..). Just like The Queen did in 1951, standing in for her father.
In fact EdwardVII as Prince of Wales might have taken far more Royal Salutes than the then monarch herself

Governors General and Lieutenant Governors fulfill all the roles and duties of the monarch in their respective territories. In fact they have place and precedence over everyone except the monarch, including other visiting members of the royal family. If you watch a ceremony that the GG attends where there is a military presence you will hear the military parade commander call for the royal salute.

Hey I have a question..
At totally official State events like Trooping The Colour, if The Queen is not able to attend, The Prince of Wales, AND NOT The DoE should/will stand for her, right?
Then what will DoE do? Will he ride behind Charles, with Anne/Kent/Will ( oh, he cant even ride now)..or will he get a separate carriage behind in uniform, or go in a civil dress with Andrew/Edward/Harry/Camilla etc. or totally ski[p the event?

If he chooses to go without his wife, I imagine he would ride in a carriage with possible in daughter so he doesn't look alone. As colonel of the Grenadier Guards he would not wear civil dress and would be involved in the procession and salute.

The cape is nice but doesn't go well with the jacket. The outfit without cape looks nice, and God, how beautiful is Victoria Peddleton!
Stella McCartney looks amazing

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I like the cape. Very stylish and modern. Of course, Stella McCartney looks like a million bucks and her outfit was so classic and simple. Love, love, love it!
