Of course he actually held all those dukedoms as opposed to people getting the titles wrong.

Is it just me, or has the Fail been failing even harder than usual lately? So many articles with super basic facts wrong and major editorial mistakes. One last week said Diana was buried at Park House in Norfolk.

I've noticed that too. Perhaps its a good thing as recently in an article about Charles, there were nothing but positive comments.

Or... perhaps they were trying to get all their dukes in a row?

I think the obvious mistakes are great. If it becomes so oblivious they are getting it wrong, people will find everything hard to believe.

Louise looks very much like her Edward in some pics and I see the queen as well. Not seeing much of Sophie in her face at all.

Is Louise taking part in the show? I hear she also rides.

I think Louise has always looked a lot like Edward (I seem to recall that when they left the hospital after Louise was born, one of the reporters asked who the baby looked like, and Sophie pointed at Edward), but in some of the pictures from today the resemblance seems even stronger than ever! It's always lovely to see Louise, especially with her mother and grandmother. It seems like they always enjoy each others company.

Louise is the image of her father it's scary at times! Her mannerisms are so similar - she even stands like him and holds her hands like him. It's really lovely to see how much she looks like him and I can't believe how tall she is! Everyone else clearly thinks so too as there are some lovely images of Sophie and Louise comparing heights.

Louise is 100% Windsor!

The Royal Windsor Horse Show appears to be a very popular event, and I'm sure the Queen, and her family enjoy having a nice, relaxing day out. I saw some pictures of Lady Louise playing with her cousin Peter's daughters, and Louise liked like a natural. She's a lovely young lady, and it's always a pleasure to see her out with her family. The more I look at her, the more I see a younger version of her paternal grandmother. James rocked his sunglasses. Both of the Wessex kids are on the tall side.

Gorgeous photos of Louise playing with Peter's daughters and those sunnies of James' are so cool.

Looks as if everyone had a great day.

Who is Lady Penny Romsey?


Edward's children are going to be tall. Louisa looks like him...not sure who James resembles ..the glasses block his eyes.

Peter's children are very attractive. So nice to see the cousins (even if not of the same generation) get on so well.

Those pictures are so sweet! After seeing the pictures yesterday, I was already thinking, "I can't believe Louise has grown up so much already," and seeing her play with her adorable little cousins only reinforces that. And while Louise may look just like Edward, it seems like she has Sophie's laid-back, hands-on nature.

I always love seeing pictures from events like the Royal Windsor Horse Show, as it's always nice to see members of different parts of the family interacting in an informal setting and enjoying themselves.

If I'm not mistaken, Penny is related to Philip as her mother was 1st cousin to the Duke. Its also been noted I believe that Philip and Penny are pretty close and they both enjoy carriage driving together.

Please correct me if I'm wrong on this as I'm going by memory here.
