As this thread is for the Garter Service and procession, could we please leave the Wills 'n Kate wedding speculation out of it.
Wedding speculation and posts asking rhetorical questions have been removed.

The pics will come soon enough, so please be patient.

Yes Kate was there, she was really enjoyed watching her Prince along with Prince Harry. Sophie is again opted for the satelite hat she wore last year at Ascot. The Duchess of Cornwall seemed to have worn the hat that she wore for the very first time to Royal Ascot 2005, with another outfit last year on 2nd day at Ascot, but this time not with the very grand brooch.

I am so glad to see all of the ladies plus Kate. Each time I type her name my post gets deleted. I do not understand why!!! Kate was a part of the event and I am not talking about marriage, wedding gown or dates for the any so called wedding. I am glad that she was there and it was so nice to see her standing with camilla. Thanks to all for the links to this event!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess that I like this event and the people that went to the event. I do not think that I am allowed to say anything.

At least it looked like it gets better reception than the one she wore to the Diana memorial service.

Damn i love so much this colorful parade....

-Camilla: traditional Valentine + Treacy coubination= timeless elegance.
-Sophie: Nice outfit but why why why the UFO attack again...
-Kate (oups excuse me: Catherine): not bad at all, pretty retro style, al little too dark perhaps..

I don't think so. AFAIK the only "girlfriend" that attended was Sarah Duchess of York the devorced ex-wife of The Duke of York who attended when he was invested last year (was it last year?) so Catherine's appearance seems to be a first. I noticed that the media reported on her being there but did not say anything about an upcoming engagement. Very suspicious.

Camilla : Love the colour, the style, everything. Just elegant.

Kate : Had it been in any other colour I'd love it but the black turns me off. Methinks her presence is significant so I think her outfit needed a bit more attention.

I know, normally the press would be in speculation overdrive, so either they know something we don't or else they are sick and tired of getting it wrong

And just to keep things on topic (sorry Warren ) here are some more photos:Fotobanka isifa image service

Is it black or dark navy? Didn't she wear it before in Dublin?

Well...Prince William looked a bit uncomfortable in the robes. I have to agree with Nico noting that Countess of Wessex had a nice outfit. The satellite hat was not bad.

So we would see Will in similar trousers as the Duke of Edinburgh wear time to time with the Garter

Kate and Camilla dressed wonderfully!

Will Harry be a part of this ceremony in the next few years?

Love the Duchess of Gloucestershire's outfit although the ladies looked lovely. Didn't like Kate's dark outfit but lovely to see her there. Prince Phillip is starting to look very frail ever since he had that spell in hospital.
