I'd really like to see pictures of Pss Eugenie on the balcony - she seems to be hidden at the back. The Countess of Wessex looks lovely....

Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected love this picture - in the first window is the two Taylor girls, Margarita Armstrong Jones and Louise, then you have Kate in the main balcony at Horse Guards and then in the final window i think it is the eldest of the Earl of St Andrews' girls

I love the scene of the Elosie, Estella, Margarita and Louise standing in one of the windows at the Palace.

It was a great day...lovely to see all the royals (major and minor). Wonder why Beatrice wasn't there but there is always Ascot for a crazy hat :) Though she has been doing a fantastic job as of late.

Catherine looked lovely, the coatdress looked better standing than when she was riding in the carriage. And while the black and white is not a standout item, she didn't take away from the star of the day:

The Birthday Girl/Woman/Queen - Queen Elizabeth.....Long May She Reign!

Having a look at the family balcony shot - ive so far identified Duke and Duchess of Kent, Earl and Countess of St Andrews with their two daughters Lady Marina and Lady Amalia, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and Lady Frederick Windsor, Duke of Gloucester, Gary Lewis, George Gilman, Countess of Ulster, Lady Helen Taylor, and her 4 children, Viscountess Linley and Margarita Armstrong Jones, Princess Alexandra, Julia Oglivy and her two children (Flora and a boy) Arthur and Daniel Chatto, Earl and Countess of Wessex and Louise, Duke of York, Princess Eugenie, Princess Anne and Tim, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall and the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh

Think there a few hidden in shots

I wonder why Andrew was not wearing a military uniform?

(He's actually entitled to!)

Can anyone identify for me what uniform Prince Edward is wearing?? Looks good!

It's a shame that here in Canada we can't see it, but I doubt that enough people would get up so early to watch it to make it worthwhile for the CBC to buy the broadcast rights. :(

I wonder who will become Colonel of the Grenadiers once Prince Philip either retires or is not longer with us. Harry or Andrew?

Looking on the balcony photos,I can conclude that the whole atmosphere is very facinating,especially admiring William and Kate.I am glad that the most of Kents were present,though I wonder why the other closer relatives were not present on the balcony.If I am not mistaken,Princess Beatrice ,Lord Nicholas Windsor,Lord Downpatrick and Lord Fredrick Windsor were absent.

I don't know why, but it always annoys me to see Edward in uniform when he never served.

I suppose I'm unreasonable, since others in the RF didn't either, but it just seems like self-aggrandizement to me.

Haven't we had discussion about his uniforms?
It certainly is a new one which I have never seen before and google isn't answer my many search questions.

Per Twitter-
@orderofsplendor Prince Andrew has no army appointments, hence why no uniform. Edward on the other hand does, hence the uniform.

Apparently Beatrice is at a wedding this afternoon with Catherine, (info courtesy of Mia_mae), so I wonder why she didn't show herself today.

Its funny how we see what we see. I definitely felt I was looking at a functional family with complicated - but working - relationships. However, I did not see happiness - I saw 'good form'. Practiced smiles, betraying nothing. Newlyweds are always happy and everyone likes to look at pretty people in love - so they don't count. (Besides which, old aunties are demanding - its been over a month since the wedding - where's the baby!?! )

It strikes me how complex and difficult it must be to be 'on show' like that - watched in the nano-seconds, pictures popping left and right. To me the Duchess of Cornwall looked strained in the carriage - who knows why - shoes pinching her feet, lumbago acting up - I jest, but you know what I mean. One wonders, though, of the story behind that moment caught, or was it just the camera being unforgiving?

What do you say to each other standing up there on the balcony being watched? Especially as one knows there are lip-readers hanging on every utterance. It looks so uncomfortable to me - like something endured.

So we see something different - each of us. I saw 'good form'. And complexity.

Where was Princess Anne? Especially as I thought I saw her husband behind the Queen - or was I mistaken?

Its always charming seeing little children up there - what an experience it must be for them!

Were Peter, Autumn, Zara, or Mike even there? I noticed none of them attended Epsom either.
