I looked at the lovely pictures including the one where the Duke is said to look sick, and a poster wonders if he might have excema. There are many reasons why a person's face can look red. I am not sure what excema looks like but if it causes reddish skin it is not the only possible cause. I am also a fan of this couple, such gracious people.

Thanks Iceflower. I know sometimes I tend to forget how much these visits can mean to volunteers and staff.

Thanks for all these updates on the Gloucesters, Iceflower. I really admire this couple's work ethic and diligence to their charities and may I say that it's absolutely fabulous to see Joanna Lumley at the Speedo Charity Swim event.

Thanks for finding this, Cepe. Lovely photo and it shows their roles and personalities so well. What is she wearing on her left lapel, any ideas? I can never make out the fine details. Old Timers' eyes.

On the brown jacket in the two pics above she seems to be wearing brooch of the letter r and b in gold. Took me a minute to work out that they are the initials of her and Richard. How sweet

I dont know. here is a better picture

http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/P...QyBzWDRn_l.jpg

Definitely white cross and ribbon of RVO; plus family order. I thought it was a crucifix at her neck

This is the insignia of St John

She is also wearing a large star - not sure what that is.

yes - that could be.

This might just be one of my favorite photos of them. I admit, I'd like to meet this Pope too. He's certainly willing to stir the pot!
