Do they still use real bear skins? Awful if they do. Should use something faux.

I read that also but I'm not convinced it is the same. William's shirt was white with more ruffles. George's was blue with fewer ruffles. Unless my color was off....

James and Louise both look like Edward, I think. But I thought he looked a little lost out there. Is this the first time on a balcony appearance? And without his parents.

That outfit really doesn't seem to be the same type that was worn when Charles was that age.

As expected, the Kents, especially Princess Alexandra, looked absolutely regal. It is nice to see Lady Gabriella making her annual public appearance. The Duchess of Gloucester looked all right.

From what I've read they collect the pelts from bears that die of natural causes in the Canadian wilderness. Apparently many are decades old and have been cared for to reduce the need to create new ones.

The photo is from 2014.

The Queen always rode on her own when inspecting her troops at the parade. The royal colonels ride behind her, but since Prince Philip stopped riding, I guess it's preferred for The Queen to continue to do the inspection on her own. I don't think Philip would have it any other way.

It is not the same outfit, unless they modified it. William had elastic at the waist and had more ruffles in front.

Princess Anne has move up.
She is in the front row next to Camilla. Princess Anne is usually hidden in the back but thanks to Sophie and Edward attending the wedding Princess Anne can finally be seen.

I posted the fresh photo. The same comments apply to the balcony 2015. The Kent family rarely disappoints.

Did anyone catch that there is a photo where the entire 'central group' are all looking dead-ahead at the photographer? This includes Harry who is poking his head around Catherine so that he is in the photograph. How did they orchestrate that? Walkie-talkie, cell phone? That's cooperation with the media.

George looks to me to be pure Middleton, mainly Michael Middleton.

Looking at the side-by-side of George and William at the same age(?), George looks like he's chubbier than his dad was, especially in his face, but I think he has William's colouring and nose.

I see a squarer face. Michael Middleton has a square face imo.

Anyway, George has more of Kate's family's phenotype in him, I think. We'll see.

I also saw someone waving from the window at horse guards as the first carriages arrived but it was too far to see who it could be.
Maybe the little girl is Lady Cosima Windsor - the Ulsters' daughter? I couldn't tell if the Gloucester daughters were there, and they have daughters of their own as well.

William had a long face, even when he was a kid. George to me seems to have a rounder face. Catherine did to as a child, but so did Charles when he was this age.

I think he might end up with his dad's nose, but a face shaped more like either of his grandfather's. His dad's colouring, but he almost looks like he'll have waiver or even curly hair. To me he doesn't purely resemble Middleton or Windsor so much as a mix of both.

A week or so ago I was looking through some stuff of my mother's and it included a baby photo of Philip and it looked exactly like George. It wasn't a photo I had seen before - not the one of his sitting on the chair. I always saw a lot of Philip in William as well, though now I don't see much of anyone in William - not Diana, not Philip, not Charles.

I think George looks a lot like Kate and her father, except with blonde hair. He's a sweet little guy and seems pretty well behaved.

There is no doubting Louise's father but James has some of Sophie's features. Photos of her as a child show his resemblance to Sophie - he even has her dimples. He was on the balcony in 2013 with Edward and Sophie but this time he was without his parents. He looked perplexed by it all but it was nice that the Queen encouraged Louise and James to come onto the balcony with them as they were without their parents.

To me it looks Lady Elizabeth Georgiana Shakerley née Anson, daughter of the 4th Earl of Lichfield and of Lady Anne Bowes-Lyon—cousin of Queen Elizabeth II—who later became Princess Anne of Denmark. Usually she dyes her hair but now seems grey. (Lady Elizabeth was one of Queen Beatrix' bridesmaids and is still one of her oldest and best foreign friends). Lady Elizabeth has aged quite quickly since the death of her husband Sir Geoffrey, the 6th Baronet Shakerley...

Is it one of the Queen's ladies in waiting? Lady Farnham perhaps? In some of the pics of her she seems to be wearing the same necklace.

That is a very good guess, I think it is Lady Diana Somerset Maxwell, Baroness Farnham née Gunnis indeed (widow of the 12th Baron Farnham).
