He wore the uniform of the London Regiment. As their honorary Colonel, he can wear that uniform, along with any other uniform of which he has an honorary military appointment. :)

Finally made it through all of the links and the thread and what an enjoyable read through it was too.

Only thing I haven't seen is William telling Louise to look up as the Red Arrows come in for the fly past. That would be too adorable for words. Any help given to point me in the direction of where I could see that would be greatly appreciated!! :o)

So happy to see Lady Louise at her first Trooping. She really is a lovely little girl and looked to be having a ball. That was such a surprise to hear about yesterday. All of the little ones looked to be having a wonderful time and that's one of my favourite parts of TtC. As it's the only time we really do see everyone on the Balcony these days.

Thanks to one and all for all the links!! :o)

Video - If you can watch that, scroll down to the bottom of the page and it's arond 3.08 of the video. You can see Lady Louise moving from side to side to see something and then William calls her name and points to the sky and she looks up and her face lights up.

Yes, its a choker she has used many times. First public outing was at the wedding of Peter Phillips. Was used at Ascot last year as well, and during the trip to Canada c18 months ago.

Just to add to the comment of Prince Andrew's lack of smile...It was something I thought about when I looked at pics of him at recent events, the Royal Wedding, Epsom Races, Trooping the Colour.... a very sad man.

Do these regiments have any input as to who'll be their honorary Colonel? Or do they just have to accept whoever the Queen picks?

Also on this video, if you watch Prince Andrew, he is laughing with Prince Charles and looking much brighter than usual

I thought it was rather ugly, actually.
What is he wearing on his head?

What does that mean? What are appointments?
Sorry for asking :)

What he's wearing will be part of their uniform.

From what i've heard they do, it's the same with patronages and charities I believe.

Appointments refer to being given a role within a regiment, for example the Queen appointed Prince William as Colonel of the Irish Guards, this role is considered an appointment within the army as the role is ceremonial.

This video was nice. I did notice that what I thought was Catherine laughing was clearly her sneezing :)

Thanks for this video. It's so fun to see them all interacting with each other. Lady Louise and The Queen are having a little conversation. I also noticed Edward and Sophie having little jokes with each other as they could be seen making each other laugh. The children are so entranced with the performance!

Are there rules about who can go through the middle door of the balcony? Or does it not matter?

A quick update: I went to the Queen's Cup; the weather was truly awful - I wore a nice little linen suit and fortunately took a mac and an umbrella but was still soaked. I will add a full report elsewhere because - unusally - the trophy was presented by Prince Harry, not the Queen. I can only assume that this was because the Queen [who almost always presents the trophy] was having a quiet afternoon off after a busy Saturday [Trooping the Colour] and a busy Sunday morning [Service to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's 90th birthday] what with the Garter Service today and 5 days of Royal Ascot to follow.

I had a great time though, even if I got soaked.
Alex

Hmmm, I can't imagine a regiment willingly picking Edward, since he flunked out of his own military training. I know that if I served in a regiment, I'd want as honorary Colonel a member of the BRF who actually had walked the walk, not just talked the talk.
