I really like the Duke; there's something so kindly and professorial about his looks. I understand he was formerly an engineer before he assumed the title.

A minor correction, Prince Richard is an HRH not an HG. However his son the Earl of Ulster will be an HG when he succeeds his father as Duke of Gloucester.

Thank you Ice Flower. Ooh my, the Duchess of Gloucester does look incredibly chic in this outfit. It is such a refreshing shade of pale lemon which almost borders on a subtle lime green. Absolutely exquisite. I also love her elegant hat.

The Duke of Gloucester has visited the Isle of Wight and among several other events presented the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service to members of Shanklin Theatre and Community Trust and the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, marking the contribution unpaid volunteers make to both. The award ceremony on July 3 took place at Osborne House, the Duke's great great grandparents' former home.

Here's a nice large gallery from a local photo agency:

HRH the Duke and the Duchess of Gloucester visit Finland's capital Helsinki on 19 - 20 September.
The visit is linked to Helsinki’s status as World Design Capital 2012 and the 200th anniversary of Helsinki as the Capital of Finland. Additionally, the visit accommodates the Royal couple’s interest in design and architecture.
During the visit, Their Royal Highnesses will meet the Finnish President Sauli Niinistö and his spouse Jenni Haukio and they will also call on Helsinki City Mayor, Jussi Pajunen.
Their Royal Hignesses will visit Helsinki landmarks like the Olympic Stadium and will be introduced to well known Finnish brands with visits to the Design Museum and the Finnish design house Marimekko.
HRH the Duke and the Duchess of Gloucester in Helsinki 19 - 20 September

Daisiesforever, I agree that the outfit of the Duchess at the "Not Forgotten" garden party was absolutely scrumptious! I might go so far as to say it was the best royal daytime outfit I have ever seen! This lovely lady, in her sixties, is an amazing credit to the family. And remember, she was one of the "commoners" who joined The Firm. Trace back to her wedding to Prince Richard, six weeks before his brother Prince William died.
She looked like a scared little mouse, but a determined little mouse, in that room full of
royalty, including Prince Charles, the Queen Mum, and Princess Margaret. Mouse no more!
