No,as they are both in the military at present,they have to wear their uniforms on official occasions like the one today.

When is Camilla ever going to wear that brids nest/hedge explosion thing again - a total waste of money imo you dont see the Queen splashing out on her Trooping the Colour outfits the one she wore today is quite a few years old, the Duchess Of Glouchester is also wearing an old outfit and even Sophie could wear her hat at an engagement but Camilla looks plain ridicolous. Did the Queen Mother ever wore stupid hats, did Princess Margaret, did Princess Diana (im starting the usual comparsion between Diana Camilla here im just trying to find an example to highlight my point) all other major royal ladies when attending the birthday pararde wore a simple hat befitting the occassion

When Prince Michael was a serving officer in the 1970's he wore morning dress to TTC as did Prince Andrew when he was a serving naval officer in the 80's it was only ever the Royal Colonels who wore military attire so I don't inderstand why William and Harry are wearing theirs.

P.S. I was hoping to see Lady Louise today. I wonder if she will ever come to TTC.

WOW my dear it's just a hat ...Obviously you don't like ....but make such a tralala about it

Speaking of "stupid hats", i' m sure to find some tasteful feathered mastepieces from the Queen Mother and Pcess Marge back to the glorious 70's and 80's, and even during trooping the colours....

I LOVE THESE EVENTS. thanks for the links
my first thought of the balcony photo is to paraphase a line from jaws "we're gonna need a bigger balcony"

how exciting for amber, i'm excited just seeing the photos. i love pomp, horses and uniforms and no one does it better than the UK.

Wow you really don't like her hat do you? I'm sure she will wear it again, she seems to like this type of hat so it shouldn't be a problem for her to wear it at another hat occasion.

Perhaps it's because William and Harry are both in the Household Division?

On horseback to the right of the Queen while she was on the dais and just behind her while she was in the carriage.

I love Camilla's headpieces - they are not hats anymore than tiaras are hats. They are accessories and she looks lovely. I love the way they contribute to the total look of her. They are whimsical in a classic way and fits her personal style perfectly. Camilla has her very own style and carries it of splendidly.

My personal favourites are Princess Michael, who looked great a-la Mrs. Jackie Kennedy, and Countess of Wessex. It was refreshing to see that Countess wore something besides her favourite satellite-type or asymmetrical hats. I liked Duchess' of Cornwall light-coloured outfit, but the "bushy" hat is all right. She can not take risk of wearing some avant-garde piece of clothes... So let her play with hats.

Princess Michael's ensemble was so knock out elegant that I really don't think that any further comment on it is necessary. The Duchess of Gloucester was also soooo elegant as well.

Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected Princess Michael looks elegant but i would prefer a stronger colour rather than what appears to be white as it would stand out more against the stone of the palace

What? You don't like this hat? Personally there aren't enough feathers and flowers... more is needed if you ask me.
