The Queen usually wears poppy's with five petals, I've tried googling it but i'm sure someones asked the question before. Time to trawl through the thread

New hat for Catherine potentially, and i think Edward has a different uniform on this year.

I did some trawling! A couple of posts on the issue, one of which is my own but i don't think it's quite accurate.

This is correct, Admirer, but there are a few different options for poppies in the UK. The Scots have their own poppy which is slightly different to that sold in the rest of the UK.

There's also the option of a much larger, more realistic poppy (worn here by Cherie Blair), which you can buy from the RBL but which will cost you more than the regular poppy. Over the years the RBL have started selling miniature poppy lapel pins which are metallic, as well as more 'glitzy' poppies such as that worn by Kate on Sunday. Again, these are more expensive and would be kept year to year. These poppies are handy because the normal paper poppy can become rather battered when taking coats on and off etc.

Oh, also, Camilla wore what appeared to be a large knitted poppy last year. Overall, though, the Queen, Charles, William and Kate etc. often wear a poppy which is slightly different to the basic poppy and is made specially for them by the RBL.

You're wishing you'd never brought this up now, aren't you? Overall, you can wear whatever poppy you want, you could even make your own, as long as you donate to the RBL.

I find this ceremony at the Cenotaph such a moving event. Year after year it becomes more poignant.

The wonderful thing about the ceremony is that it almost never changes. It's a wonderful example of British understatement and simplicity. The music is outstanding. I defy anyone to listen to the massed bands playing Nimrod by Sir Edward Elgar and not feel tears come to their eyes. One of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.



Every year I worry about HM walking backwards down those steps. Every year she does it perfectly.

She did a slight stumble today. Prince Philip make sure he turn around to walk down the steps. She won't be able to do it in a while.

I agree, the Cenotaph is a very moving and poignant event. I hope that HM is alright, I just saw a clip of her fall on the news and it didn't look too painful, but still, I hope she wasn't too damaged by it.

Well, it seems like it was worth trawling! Thank you for taking the time to do so, now it makes sense. I don't think I caught the question last time otherwise I would have remembered the five leaf poppies. I didn't realise you could make your own poppy either, that's interesting. I think the five leaf poppy is quite sweet! I like the knitted ones too but I wear the gemstone kind that Catherine has worn in the past.

For some reason the above video has the 2015 event picture, but if you click on the video, it's 2016 Festival of Remembrance.

Thanks Dman.

I didn't look at the video as I've seen the whole event already.

Watched both events over at YouTube. I don't like posting in here until I've done that & know what everyone's talking about. :)

I love the song 'You'll Never Walk Alone.' Patti Labelle sings a beautiful version of it.

That's a very very special song to me & I adore it too. Josh Groban & Celtic Women have also sung stunning renditions of it too. I thought Alfie looked seconds away from tears when they showed him after that young lady had read the final stanza of her Poe as this year's Citation. Michael looked so proud of her, I thought buttons might go popping.

And will become even more so over the coming years as our WWII Vets are leaving us at a faster rate. :(

Every year I worry about HM walking backwards down those steps. Every year she does it perfectly.

1st, Nimrod is one of my very favourite Classical Music pieces period. I also defy anyone to not get the chills when that beautiful long crescendo reaches it's climax. It really is just a gorgeous piece of Music.

2nd, did you know going downstairs backwards is actually easier on your legs, lower back & joints? We have Summer Friends from Germany, Joachim had noticed Mom was having a harder time of walking & showed it to her. His Dr had recommended it to him to try & keep a Visit to an OR for a Hip Replacement as far off as possible & it really does help. I try to remember to do it, as my knees are...well...BLECH!! Mom's far better at doing it though & could be why HM has been able to go down those steps so easily.

I also saw the stumble & hope she didn't tweak or jar anything too badly. Speaking from experience, it's often what seems like a little thing, that can cause the most trouble w/your knees.
