I couldn't tell what the order was because none of the coverage I caught showed the order.... in fact, all I saw was The Queen and Prince William laying their wreaths, and a pic of Prince Charles holding his.

I noticed, however, that some of the women wore multiple poppies. Like Lady Thatcher wore three, The Queen wore four, Camilla wore two.... but all the men wore one. I wonder if it's just for a silly reason like more poppies makes the brooches look better, or for the men, too many poppies cover up the medals....

I want to see the Kents and Gloucesters too. I have a Rex account but only watermarked pics, no HQ, and I believe that only HQ access is for their UK clients. If you are in the US, they will refer to you to Rex USA


The watermarked pics aren't worth anything. Especially with their new watermark style.

However.......... there are pics at Getty, some showing The Duke of Kent, but no Gloucesters. It was odd just to see Camilla and Tim on the balcony this year. Usually the balcony holds at least four....

I agree Casiraghi Trio it was very odd two see just two people on the balcony. I remember when there were all these spectacular royals up there. Now theres just Camilla and Tim.

Does anyone know what the (rude and boorish, IMO) guy was yelling during the silence? I caught "traitor and a hypocrite" but I couldn't tell who it was about. Someone in the government, I presume...

Are there any pictures of Prince...oops...I mean, Princess Anne?...hehe
And I do very much like how Camilla can often look like a nanny applying for a position with the Banks family (Mary Poppins) and still look every bit the royal personage that she is. She's seems to pull it off with such resounding success!
You're ok Camz!

Madame Royale, if you go to the gallery on Getty Images, you can find one of Princess Anne walking behind the Queen. There are another one of all the Royals salute as well, luckily for myself, i can see them in HQs from EPA and Tim Graham. However, there are no photos of the Festival yet, i'd like to see them in HQs as well.

You rock, Iceflower, as usual! If only TRF had the kudo system like over at TFS, you'd get kudos from me.

The Queen as always look somber but very regal, I thought it odd though that we can't find any pictures of the other members of The Royal Family on the balconies.

I bet it's because all the media was honing in on Prince William laying his wreath. Last year we had more pics from the balconies, and why do you suppose? Because Prince William was up there! This year he was not up there, so there are few pics, just a few to show Camilla, but no more. William, William, William.

Charles does too and so do many people at the moment in Britain or the Commonwealth. It's because of Rememberance Day - to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, especially since World War I. The day was dedicated by King George V on November 7th 1919 and people wear Poppies as a symbol for rememberance

Thanks, Duke!
I didn't know it! I thought it had something to do with Japan!

I wondered too if some thought had been given to the wearing of the poppies during a visit to Japan. I know it's the right time of year for the British people to do this, but I might have been concerned about irritating my Japanese hosts.

Don't get me wrong, I always buy them in the U.S. because my grandfather was a disabled World War I vet... but then I'm not on an official tour in Japan.
