I'm glad the Cambridge's will join the royal family at this event for the first time. It appear they are now participating in events they haven't attended before.

The Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Harry will visit the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on November 5. Vets across generations.

THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to attend the Festival of Remembrance for the first time, passing another milestone on their growing list of royal duties-

President Nazarbayev is in the UK on an official visit as a guest of the government, Buckingham Palace says.

The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duke of York, greets the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan (who is in the UK on an official visit as a guest of the British Government) at Buckingham Palace - November 4, 2015.

Our amazing Queen looks great as usual.

The President, who is in the United Kingdom on an official visit as a Guest of Government, was accompanied by Mrs. Nazarbayeva, the Deputy Prime Minister and daughter of the President.

So Andrew is an old friend of the dictator of Kazakhstan. I can't say I'm surprised.

Does anyone know the difference between a state visit and an official visit? Other than tiaras?

One might assume that ratings of a visit depend on money the UK will get from a particular government. All gifts to Prince Andrew, Prince Henry's skiing trip, and Mr Blair's consultancy fees were just enough to procure President Nazarbaev an official visit.

The difference is mostly in the ceremonial aspects - state visits are much grander and have formal welcoming ceremonies, carriage processions, state banquets, etc. Official visits are less 'formal'.

This CNN article from 2003 has the British Foreign Office saying "It's quite difficult to draw a difference, but the technical difference is a higher ceremonial content."

The Queen and the Duke of York welcome Kazakhstan President Nazarbayev* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Rolling out the red carpet for Kazakh despot: Duke of York and Queen lay on full ceremonial welcome complete with guard of honour for controversial ruler Nazarbayev
The article says ''Rolling out the red carpet for Kazakh despot: Duke of York and Queen lay on full ceremonial welcome complete with guard of honour for controversial ruler Nazarbayev'' Rebecca English should know that you mention the Queen before Andrew, and Philip after the Queen and before Andrew.

And yes, he is a brutal dictator/despot, but so is Xi Jinping of China. And as Rebecca herself writes in this article ''Buckingham Palace pointed out that it was not unusual for a ruler to receive such a welcome and insisted the lunch was at the request of the Government.''

And when it comes to Andrew and his friendship with dictators, what can we say, he is stupid, naive and very arrogant.

The Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Harry have paid tribute to Britain's fallen soldiers by opening Westminster Abbey's Field of Remembrance. Both Philip and Harry laid their crosses of remembrance in front of two wooden crosses from the graves of unknown British soldiers from the First and Second World Wars.

Great link - thanks. I use the cap badge (easier on the eyes)

It's very odd seeing an army officer with a "full set" as its not permitted

British Royal Family Current Events 8: April 2015-

Harry only has the various uniforms of the Blues & Royals. He is not a colonel in chief of another regiment. The uniforms in the household division are going to be similar. Thus William's Irish Guard uniform is very similar to the one Harry wore today.

The red summer tunics of the guards division are probably the most easy to identify who is who. The button grouping are different for each and the plume in the bearskin is also different. If you are close enough, then the collar symbols are different too.

I just find the style of that frock coat very flattering on a man. And that perfectly groomed beard was yummy.
I thought the DOE also looked a treat today!
