Yes she did go all the 3 days. It is according to the Court Circular on the British Monarchy Website. But i think the press might be focused on the players more rather than the Duchess.

According to this list, he is 19th. He'd have been 20th except for the death of his elder brother, Prince William of Gloucester.

The Gloucesters have always been a classy act --- very private and unassuming, yet extremely supportive of the Queen. No scandal, no gossip - the Duke gave up a very promising career in architecture when his elder brother was killed.

The Duke always reminds me of the generation that came before the present Queen. He has a certain "old school" quality about him. I like this couple as well.
