I also think they thought about the weather. Rainy and PG under 1 - not the best idea. He's the heir and they do think cautiously about his health. Just a thought.

The first balcony app. -The Queen and the royal colonels are down below taking a salute from various troops. If Kate brought George onto the balcony without William and especially the Queen, people would be having a fit about stealing the Queen's day.

Lady Gabriella Windsor was the best dressed today-as usual IMO. A picture of elegance.

Thanks for the photos!
Sophie, The Countess of Wessex, and Lady Helen Taylor chose unflattering outfits. Camilla's, The Duchess of Cornwall, was lovely.

Thank you for the links. No one looks particularly happy in the first one. It is too bad that George wasn't there, but he is still a little young. The combination of rainy weather, crowds, and the noise from the planes is probably a little much for a little guy.

So, was Alexandra invited to the carriage to accompany her brother? Cause if I'm right, minor members of the RF do not usually take part in the carriage procession...

Any photos of them in the carriage? I can't find anything. :/

The Duke of Kent rode in procession as colonel in chief for many years at this event. Last year he stood in for Prince Philip and sat with the Queen in the Glass coach (it is said this closed coach was used because of the Duke´s ill health - weeks before he had an operation).
Now the Duke of Kent is too frail to ride himself but as Colonel-in-chief of course allowed to ride in procession, so he uses a coach now instead of riding on horseback. His sister joins him because his wife refuses to attend public appearances and functions since about 20 years (the duchess only attends major big events like royal weddings of the brit. royal family).

Yes, I believe that given the stroke problems last year and of his advanced age (the Duke will be 80 next year) it's better for him to be in the carriage rather than keep on horseback. The Duke is Colonel of a major Guards Division, the Scots Guards, so they can not just put him coming to the biggest event on the calendar in the coach with other minor members of the family. And it would be lovely to have someone accompanying him in the carriage rather than himself alone there, so what would be a better option than the elegant and graceful Alexandra, his sister.

I think you'll find the big difference is when is Australia & New Zealand going to have the opportunity again? Maybe not for many years, if not longer. Meanwhile, George lives in England. We've seen photos and seen him out on walks with his mom or nanny. When the family feels its appropriate, he'll start attending official events.

I much prefer W&K's approach over Victoria & Daniel's, but admittedly they're in two quite different situations. Estelle is much closer to the throne in terms of both position & age. It's going to be quite a long time (god willing) before George is even the heir.

It's one event. Yes, it would have been cute to see him, but there are multiple things at play here. The truth is we will have decades to see him up there. One missed year isn't a big deal and it doesn't need to be played out like W&K are being selfish. They're his parents and they make the decisions and we need to respect that.

That's exactly what I thought! :)

The Princess looks and smiles wonderful and she seems to enjoy the moment, but the Duke...what a horrible hat. I think he does not enjoy this... Can he see antyhing in that mad thing?

THanks for these.
In #1, Camilla, as usual has found something/someone to point out. She does this often.
In #2, Harry has just made someone laugh - in this case it's Tim. Harry's good at that on balconies.

What possible difference does it make?! As a Brit, it doesn't matter to me where George happens to be, the vast, vast majority of us will only ever see George on the television or in the newspapers, so it really does not matter one jot whether it happens in Australia or London or Timbuktu.

Had he been on the balcony only a tiny proportion of the crowd would've been able to see him with their own eyes, the rest of us would see him on the telly just as we did when he was Down Under.

On the list of problems the British people have right now, not seeing George in the UK is in pretty much last place.

All of them look like grumpy bears in those hats. It's the chin strap and low brim.

EDIT: And finally - full pictuers of the balcony are coming out: http://cache1.asset-cache.net/gc/450...wXhgHc5Q%3d%3d
