I didn't find pictures as well, but they attended it; they were seating behind the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, if I recall correctly, and at the right of the Duke of Kent.
Also their three children and their spouses attended.

I, too, am looking for a picture of the Gloucesters at the Royal Wedding but have not located any. I caught a glimpse of one of the Gloucester girls in the buses carting the minor Royals to the Abbey but that was all. I saw the Duke and Duchess of Kent arrive at the Abbey and the others but not the Gloucesters. Would love to see pictures of them.

**This question is not about the the Duke or Duchess but the current Duke's late brother William. In his book on the porphyria gene in the royal families of Europe, John Röhl makes the claim that the late Prince William had signs of porphyria. Has anyone else heard this claim or knows of a thread for the late Prince William?

The thread for the late Prince William of Gloucester is Prince William of Gloucester (1941-1972) .

The Duchess is ageing well .... I've always liked her because she doesn't have quite as many "airs and graces".

The image of the little girl curtseying to the Duchess is adorable. :) Thanks for the image links. I agree Renata4711, she's lovely and down to Earth and does her Royal duties so covertly, yet she is obviously very appreciated.

I know from what people say in my own circle that The Duchess has long been regarded as one of the Queen's hidden blessings. Her life turned out to be very different from what she might have imagined; she met the-then Prince Richard when he was a Cambridge Student, reputedly on her first day in the City; he was at the University, she was doing a language course. Prince Richard was destined for a professional career as an architect and thus the Duchess would have expected to settle down to life as the wife of a professional man [Prince Richard was, as a younger son, never destined for Royal Duties, but expected to be occupy the sort of role that was envisaged for Prince Michael -i.e. not to be on the Civil List but invited to the 'wider' type of Royal Occasion [state banquets and the like, whilst his elder brother became the 'working royal'.

It is also interesting how sometimes unintended consequences turn out quite well; it was never intended that George VI and The Queen Mother would end up being Sovereign and Consort; yet the country turned out to be served so well by them; ditto the fact that Elizabeth II was never born to be Queen, yet look at the success she has made of her reign.... And then look at the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester

just my thoughts

Alex

They are such a lovely couple. I do so love reading about their activities. The Dutchess is always immaculately turned out. This particular outfit in burnt orange outfit is absolutely beautiful. The shade really does suit her. I do love her brooch.

SKNVibes | Visit by his Royal highness The Duke of Glouceste to Mark Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee
To celebrate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (sixty years of The Queen’s reign), Her Majesty The Queen has asked members of the Royal Family to travel overseas to visit every Realm as well as Commonwealth countries, Crown Dependencies and British Overseas Territories on her behalf.
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) has been chosen to host a visit by HRH The Duke of Gloucester from March 5 to 9.
As The Queen’s emissary, HRH The Duke of Gloucester’s aim will be to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee year with members of the BVI community, to learn about the rich history of the islands, and to meet with the people of the Territory in person.
