Outwith today and last year you have to go back years, I actually think the early 1990's, before you will find a pic of Princess M in the middle of the balcony at this event.

The Queen does not seem annoyed by Princess Michaels nearness.... Perhaps she even likes it? If not so she surely would have a word with her.

I always failed to see what is special about the Duchess of Kent. Same goes for Helen Taylor. I would have preferred seeing Lady Gabriella. Will Frederick and Sophie attend Ascot?

I agree about the DOK. No harm to her but I don't find her interesting at all, or her daughter. Lady Gabriella has been touring South America for the past 18 months and that's why she missed it this year and last which is a pity as I would rather have seen her above anyone else as she is very stylish.

The Duchess of Kent was, back in her heyday (being when she was actively involved on a regular basis) a most splendid sight to behold. She was really something imo; every inch the royal Duchess when on display.

I tend to find Gabriella a damn bore...lol. No loss there imo.

Duchess of Cornwall is looking lovely, one of my favourite hats on her and one of my all time favourite chokers ever! I thought the york girls looked nice, it was lovely seeing all the younger generations. Who are the handsome young boy and girl on the right of the balcony?

I wish I had seen the Duchess of Kent in her heyday. She just oozes femininity to me and she had a great set of jewels.

Happy to see Katherine Duchess of Kent, not surprised to see Princess Michael again in the highlight between the Queen and her husband, admiring Duchess Camilla sitting next to Prince William, smiling to see the young Yorks princesses with blankets..

Eugenie looks so pretty. And William very handsome. Where's Harry? Is he in South Africa for the World Cup?

It would be great to see Freddie & Sophie at Royal Ascot, but I doubt it. I remember some articles which said that they planned to spend the summer in England, though...
So maybe we'll get a surprise.

Does anyone know who are the boys in picture 51 of Zimbio Gallery. They look like twins... Maybe someone´s grandsons? They look lovely next to Beatrice and Eugenie.

I wish they showed this on American t.v. from the pictures I saw it looked nice, I also was wondering who the 2 boys in front of Eugenie are?

Here's a wonderful example of the pics with Sophie:

** Countess Sophie and Duchess Camilla **

On the balcony pics you'll find her behind the Queen.

The Duchess of Kent in her prime was AWESOME IMO. Think 1970's to 1990....very nice. Lady Helen Taylor. I see pictures of them...and I think classic British beauty.

Camilla looks lovely today as does Sophie. I don't think the presence of Princess Michael bothers the Queen much. She is the Queen.

And WHAT do we need to do to get Beatrice and Eugenie some new hats?

They look like mother and daughter here -- and I mean that in the nicest possible way!

in front of the Duchess of Kent is one of her granddaughters (I think Lady Amelia)...

in front of the Duke of Kent is his daughter-in-law the Countess of St. Andrews...

I think that the royals went into their wardrobe, because I think not a lot of new outfits were on show: The Queen wore her for Ascot last year; Camilla as well; Princess Michael has worn white for the last 2 or 3 years on Trooping the Colour. Princess Alexandra's outfit is quite old as well. I think Sophie has got a new one, vcertainly the hat.

The first is my favourite pic of the day, Prince William making everybody laugh. Unfortunatley the rest show poor Tim Taylor struggling to get his daughter Estella to behave herself (although they also show her sister Eloise Taylor and Lord Linley's daughter as well!)
