Princess Alexandra

The new listing of Royal Engagements shows that just a month after the death of her husband Princess Alexandra will be carrying out engagements. The Princess truly knows the meaning of duty.

My Lord! The Queen (first picture) looks really awful here! This is by far the worst picture of her I have ever seen...

I don't think she looks awful,ElisaR.Maybe she looks sad as some of her family members died.

Yes, of course she's sad. But she had a better look in previous funerals.
They all look more sad than usual: clearly Sir Angus was much loved.

According to this article http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4147903.stm the funeral was attended by the Queen & Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

I had heard that King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie were at the funeral. Is this true?

I don't think they attended the funeral. They have been away on a skiing holiday with theri children and grandchildren in Gstaad, Switzerland.

Also, I don't think it's surprising that Camilla attended the funeral service. She has attended several very high profile royal occasions in the past, with the Queen present. Didn't Camilla sit next to Angus or Princess Alexandra at the Prom or Party at the Palace when the Queen celebrated her Jubilee a few years ago? If she was friends with either Angus or with Princess Alexandra then it's only right/fair that she should be able to pay her last respects to him as a grieving friend.

According to the Daily Express, the Queen did not permit Camilla and P. Charles to sit together at the funeral. I think things will be just like this until the two marry. I wish they would make it legal soon.

The Queen,The Duke of Edinburgh,Prince Charles,Camilla,Lady Sarah Chatto,Princess Michael,Lady Gabriella,Duke of York,Earl and Countess of Wessex,Princess Anne.A floral tribute from King Harald and Queen Sonja to Sir Angus also outside The Chapel.

I think Camilla was invited from Princess Alexandra.At the Memorial Service for Princess Margaret in April 2002,Lady Sarah Chatto also invited Camilla.

In these pics,someone criticised that while other Royals looked very sad,Princess Michael of Kent...was she smiling?

Some pics of the funeral.Do you know a small girl there.She looks very sad,she cried.Very sorry for the family of the loss of their beloved husband,father,grandfather.

Lady Helen Taylor has given birth to a baby girl it was announced on Tuesday. The daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Kent who is also the face of fashion label Armani, gave birth to baby Estella, on December 21.

"Mother and baby are doing well and the Duke and Duchess of Kent are delighted with the arrival of their latest grandchild," a family spokeswoman was quoted as saying, adding: “It’s a good bit of family news after the sad loss of Sir Angus.”

The happy announcement came on the heels of the death of Sir Angus Ogilvy, 76 - husband of the Queen’s cousin Princess Alexandra - who passed away on Boxing Day after a long series of cancer-related illnesses. His funeral took place on Wednesday.

Estella is the fourth child for the 40-year-old royal and her art dealer husband Tim, who have been married since 1992. The new bundle of joy is 29th in line to the throne and joins the expanding family as a sister to Columbus, ten, Cassius, eight, and one-year-old daughter Eloise.

It is surprising that so many ppl of the RF are friends with Camilla. Did they not like Diana?

The only royals who are good friends with Camilla are Lady Sarah and Princess Alexandra, even though most of the rest of the royals eventually came to dislike Diana, they haven't all come around the Camilla

According to Hello Magazine, Camilla is the close friend of The Ogilvy family not mean they like or dislike them.But i think The Queen still has not allowed her to be daughter-in-law.

I've never been a big fan but I have to admit I think Camilla looks incredibly elegant in this picture. I love her black suit and It certainly shows off a very impressive pair of legs!

Were any of the Gloucesters at the funeral? For that matter, were any of the Kents at Princess Alice's funeral?
