She has done it several times. I've seen a whole bunch of images / clips of The Queen and Charles, where they speak and smile at each other.

Here are some few pictures, but I couldn't find the best ones.

I guess she will be there. I haven't seen anything stating she won't attend.

Look at that suit! So dapper! Thankfully I have a husband who knows how to dress well, too. That was part of the attraction. A man well groomed is seriously hard to find.

I've been gone all day w/The Parents & Family Friends of ours for a day out in Sudbury & just got back an hour ago, so have been playing catch up. The pictures of The Queen and William are just lovely. You can really see that close bond they share just radiating from them. Really liked what Kate wore, but would have loved it for anything else, just because her Poppy looked rather lost in the pattern of the lace. If she wore more than just the one, such as The Queen, then it would have been better IMO. Minor quibble, but...

Speaking of wearing Poppies...Did I see Princess Michael wearing hers on the wrong side or was that a trick of the material/lighting? In the picture of her arriving & reaching out to shake hands? It seems Getty has now joined the DM as sites I see for split seconds and then a blank page. Beyond frustrating!!!

I'll have to check YouTube to see if The Festival has been put up over there yet. It has been the last couple of years & really is a great show every year.

Speaking of YouTube....The British series Time Team did a Special Episode exploring the Occupation of The Channel Islands and seeing if there was anything to find Archeology wise. I was floored, as I never knew the Nazis had managed to get that close to the UK. If anyone's interested in learning more about this, then at least there's a start. :)

Written by Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae in 1915 during Second Battle of Ypres

First World War Poems - In Flanders Fields by John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

They regularly do but the relationship between a mother and her eldest son is often different from that between a grandmother and her eldest grandson. Take also in account that both mother and son are beyond retirement age and have developed a different relationship in different eras.

Prince William was never the Heir and so has escaped the scrutiny of being the "King-in-Waiting" which has always been on Charles. That makes that little tokens of understanding, a wink, a raised eyebrow between the Queen and the Prince of Wales are so priceless. They tell a whole story. In that documentary with old family movies with comments from the Prince of Wales, he spoke with audible affection and love about his mother, the Diamond Queen. It was moving.

I saw the Festival of Remembrance on BBC. Very well-organized as always and the Queen looked absolutely fabulous with her black outfit, white hair and eyepopping jewels. Marie-Christine of Kent, Princess Michael, never fails to look über-glamorous, even setting the much younger Duchess of Cambridge in the shadow.

Good heavens, what a vitriol, what a poison, what a hate is distorted on Catherine.

Let's keep it on topic, this thread is not about the relationship between the Queen and Prince Charles.

The King isn't wearing his uniform


Quote:
The Queen is to lead Britain in a silent mark of respect to honour the nation's war dead as a Remembrance Sunday service gets underway at the Cenotaph in central London this morning.

The monarch will be joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, members of the leading political parties and Prince Harry, whose involvement marks his official transition into a full-time royal. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

A two-minute silence will take place at 11am and wreaths will be laid at the foot of the Whitehall memorial, followed by a veterans' march.

I suppose he only wears it in the Netherlands when attending a Dutch military ceremony. Duc et Pair or Marengo should be able to explain to us.

My thought is that since it's another countrys military engagement, that he's there as a neutral outsider insted of parading his military colours. But I might be wrong.

I thought it was very neatly done with the inclusion of the Dutch King.
Maxima stood on the balcony with the Duchess of Cambridge, Vice Admiral Laurence and the Countess of Wessex.
The King flanked Queen Elizabeth II with Philip the other side of her. The Queen, The King and Prince Philip laid their wreaths separately.
Then came William, Harry and Prince Andrew laying their wreaths together.
Then the Earl of Wessex, Princess Anne and the Duke of Kent laid their wreaths.

Then of course the politicians laid their wreaths, each party leader separately because of course they can't do the same as the RF and place them together to help make this element of the service quicker for those old veterans waiting in the cold to march... Anyway...
