why not? because she has her own coat of arms now?? wonder why carol was not busy with her party pieces today. i think kate is a gem and i like the father. he looks nice. not fond of the rest of the middleton family. so many tacky pictures of them, pippa half naked, james in woman clothes, uncle gary and the cocaine. and now carol plays the countess or whatever. hilarious. good luck to them.

Sophie was there today,yes. She looked stunning in a fitted beige coat and huge hat. I'm sure pics will come through soon. I know as I've been there today!!
They'll come through! She didn't take part in the carriage procession. She appeared to spend the day with her Dad which was sweet.

I really like the jacket, although it seems a bit heavy considering it's June, is it really that chilly? (I do know it's raining...)
I agree with you. Bea's coat looks very nice and sophisticated. The hat and the scarf (or whatever that is) I would toss though.

I had wanted both quotes. The obnoxious one that faulted Carol Middleton for being a "commoner". ZaJa, you are quite correct.

Here's the video from today:


Carole sure does seem to be enjoying herself.............

Who are the people in the other carriages (specifically 2:54), I have never seen them before.

The hats are amazing but that article is pretty snarky. The press are always so mean spirited about Carole Middleton, as are so many others. All we really know about her is that she raised a very poised, elegant woman who's quickly turning into a huge asset for the royal family and that she started her career in a pretty typical low level position before building a hugely successful company with her husband. That suggests to me that she's probably pretty smart and hard-working.

The constant insinuation that she's somehow inferior as a person because she used to be an airline hostess- it's so shallow.

As she should! How fun! The other people in the carriage with the Middletons are Dr Jim Hay and his wife Fitri. They're wealthy racehorse owners.

Do you know if they are a part of the racing syndicate that the Middleton's belong to? A bit confused on why its a big deal that Carole is enjoying herself. Should she be scowling or glaring at people while she rides in the carriage? How is she supposed to act?

Its also a bit odd that it wasn't a big deal when Christopher Rhys Jones was at Ascot. And for the record, when his daughter Sophie married married in the BRF, they also ordered a coat of arms. So apparently its not just the Middleton's who are attempting to raise above their station.

And before anyone says anything I don't think there is anything wrong with Carole (and Mike) wanting the best for their children, getting a coat of arms, or running a successful business.

Yes, I agree snobbish. I am sure that if the poster who made the "commoner" and "social climber" comments had been invited by the Queen to join the carriage procession, said poster would not have declined!

I don't think it's so much a big deal with Carole and Mike enjoying themselves as much as an opportunity to acknowledge a very joyful period in a family's life..
There's usually such a lot of sadness in the press generally but in this case and in this family, things have turned out great.. we're delighted for them.

Exactly! I don't understand why people are making a deal of Carole and Michael in carriage as "commoners" when Sophie's father has been in many Royal carriages upon his "commoner" daughter's marriage to Prince Edward. Christopher also attends the Order of the Garter as well. As for the coat of arms, doesn't that always happen when someone marries into the Royal family? When Sophie's family got a new one it was upon her marriage, which she said was a lovely thing to do have done. Where Diana's or Sarah's parents ever invited?

It's also only natural the press would focus their cameras on Michael and Carole as they are "fresh meat" to photograph. The same would have been done had William and Catherine been in the carriage. Think of the recent events they have attended at the amount of photographs has generated of them, when the other members were basically ignored. It's because they're a new fascination for the press. The heat will burn out soon enough. (Perhaps not for William and Catherine though!)

Sophie did look lovely yesterday; she was wearing her Epsom Derby outfit, which still looks classly two weeks later. Very nice she was with her father. It's lovely that the Queen includes her in-laws with family occasions as they are family at the end of the day.
