60th Anniversary of the end of World War II celebrations- July 10, 2005

Tomorrow the major events involving the Royal Family to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of WWII will take place. There will be a service at Westminster Abbey, a parade at Horse Guards, a lunch in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, and the Royal Family will make a balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace. There will hopefully be many pictures of this eventful day.

:) I like yellow near uniforms.

There are so many events today - the reception, the ceremony on Horse Guards Parade, the balcony...
I hope to see MANY pictures.


Oh, she changed her dress. Again an "old" one.
OMG, Philip is smiling. I mean: a real, normal smile! I'd like he did it more often.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

I wonder why Edward wore the uniform. A bad choice for someone who whimped out, in my opinion.
