Prince Philip have a way of letting everyone know he's always in charge. At the reception he told the photographer, "well just take it, just take the f***ing picture."

Kate if you're reading this, i'm sorry
Yes, Catherine isn't an honorary colonel yet, but she will be once The Queen appoints her.

They ask Sophie to take over the role as President of the All England Club from the Duke of Kent?

I don't believe anything has been confirmed as of yet regarding the All England Club and people are just speculating who will take on the presidency in the future.

I want to say that I'm surprised that he said that on film but then I considered who was saying it.

If Catherine or Camilla said that they'd be torn to shreds. Good to see Philip benefit from the male prerogative.

Well that was rather rude. There was definitely a better way for him to express his impatience.

Prince Philip is not the kind of person that I normally like, but he is very funny and he has always supported the Queen.

And people were upset because William made a joke....I said a day or two ago he has a long way to go before he gets to the level of the DoE.

I know this is classic Phillip but his face-expressions made it seem a little more "uncontrolled" this time. Like he couldn't control it slipping out... Maybe some age related issue...

Well folks - it was a wonderful display - I was front and centre at BP. Most of the people around me had no idea that the changing of the guard was going to include anything special today and a number were disappointed that the guards weren't the army ones in their red coats but the RAF. When I explained what was happening they were ok.


General comments were very scathing about Kate's non appearance and the police officers, when asked why she, Charles and Camilla weren't there, said the C and C were engaged elsewhere but that Kate refused to make any sort of public appearance this week.


Now I know that is only police officers at the palace but that is what they were saying - not one of them but a couple as I heard others say they were told the same thing in other parts of the palace as people were leaving.


What the media says, and the official reasons, isn't reaching the people on the ground at the palace who are the ones asked by the visitors about these things so there are many people who have left there today with the view that Kate simply is refusing to appear in public unless it is the 'fun' stuff - right or wrong that is the image that is now out there.


PR is important and someone needs to look at the image that she is putting out there. In all the royal places I have visited, where I have been meeting other royals fans the one thing coming through loud and clear is a great deal of dissatisfaction with Kate and even William.

I need more information, Seems like odd statements from a police officer to say Kate 'refuses' to do engagements this week. What conservations would a 'lowly' police officer be privy to know the diary of a senior royal. Smells fishy to me

The 'refuses to' also caught my eye. Because like you said, he has to know some insiders who know her reasons for not attending.

Or he was just speculating irresponsibly?

Well I'm chalking this up to republican mischief making. How fortuitous several palaces employees were commenting to the public about the diary of the Duchess of Cambridge especially since she is officially on maternity leave.

It sounds like the police officer was just speculating. Especially since it's already been established as to why Kate wasn't in attendance.

I don't even believe they were speculating at all. To say C and C had another engagement but Kate 'refuses' to work comes right out of the republican manuel. The police officer would tell the person why Kate wasn't in attendance. Simply that she isn't a RAF Commodore.

It was a good try though lol
