Nice to see that Lady Sarah Chatto was present too. Was the event at Ascot in honour of Prince Charles's birthday?

It is an annual event for The Prince's Countryside Fund. It is the largest fundraiser for this charitable endeavour which promotes the countryside skills etc.

As his birthday was a week ago they also celebrated that event but it wasn't specifically a 'birthday event'.

Well I wasn't in the know; so that's why I referred to it as a birthday event. No harm done!

Former Royal Chef Darren McGrady tweeted about the gentle dispositions of the entire family - https://twitter.com/DarrenMcGrady/st...48438535028737.
They all yell, apparently.

Because Kensington Palace announced that they will host a Christmas party supported by @PoppyLegion in London for families and children of deployed personnel from RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham serving in Cyprus.

Based upon the announcement from KP, the London event is scheduled for Tues. 12/4/18 and the Cyprus event is the following day 12/5/18 so it is possible for them to attend the Diplomatic Reception.

I think they will be there. The Diplomatic reception will be in the evening. The next day they go to Cyprus.

Yup - the flight is 5 hours and the Diary says they will depart on the 5th. It will make for a long couple of days for them.

That's a very nice end of year gift from Her Majesty to all of us!

And lovely as the photos are, the DM can't help making sure that they hit their daily dose of incorrect information and wild speculation: the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara did not belong to Diana, like Kate it was loaned to her by the Queen. And how on earth would the DM know that Kate wears it for sentimental reasons?

I, too, cringe when I read anywhere that Kate is wearing Diana's tiara. I think basically its because most people can and do identify the Lover's Knot tiara with Diana as she wore it so beautifully. Now it seems to be on a lifetime loan to Kate as it was for her mother-in-law.

As for the sentimentality of Kate wearing it, no one can really know but I would imagine that it warms William's heart to see the woman he loves wearing something that he remembers the other woman he loved so much wearing. I believe that William, himself, is sentimental about this. Back in 2010 when William and Kate became engaged, he said this about the engagement ring. "[Kate's engagement ring is] my mother's engagement ring, so I thought it was quite nice because obviously, she's not going to be around to share any of the fun and excitement of it all — this was my way of keeping her close to it all."
