Prince Edward, Louise and Sophie at the Squash finals today. The BBC commentator awkwardly said it was Prince Andrew watching...it's clearly Edward as the camera has shown him a few times. Louise has seen a lot of sport at these Games. She's one lucky girl to be in the position she is in - her dad being the Vice Patron so she gets to see lots! I hope we see them with Catherine and William today.

Wow, it looks like Lady Louise has grown up over night. She looks like a young teenager now instead of a little girl, she looks a lot like Sophie in the latest pictures, beautiful young lady!

My friends have always teased me all the pin and badge trading I did during my Guiding years will serve me when I ever attended a major Intl or Nat Sporting Event (They all knew me well and knew it would a when and not if) and they were right. You guys should see my cap from the 2001 World Figure Skating Champ in Vancouver.

So it does not surprise me at all to hear Louise has a huge pin collection. As a seasoned Brownie, I'd expect it. :)

It's nice to see that Sophie brought Louise along with her again today. Perhaps the Commonwealth Games aren't really James's thing, which might explain why he was left at home. I also really like the photos of William, Catherine and Harry. One thing I like about them is how (I think) they look like ordinary friends/cousins. I particularly like this photo.

I didn't join the Brownies myself when I was younger (I wanted to but by the time I'd considered it, I was too old and just forgot about wanting to join the Guides later on), although I used to tease my mother about her having all her Brownie badges and sash, and she was in the Brownies during the '60s. Now I think it's nice that she has kept all this - but I still tease her about her bird watching badge sometimes.

How very amusing this all is. Royal Photobombing Competition! After all the years and years of being hounded by the press and the photographers, The RF have turned the tables and taken up photobombing. I would love to be hearing the inside jokes around the dinner table.

Well, hey, they're certainly taking lemons and making lemonade, if you will, and what an excellent job they're doing. They're having a great time doing it too, it would seem. Harry's facial expressions are priceless .

Question - did any one actually watch any of the games? I asked at work yesterday and the answer from every one was - 'no' or 'didn't even know they were on' and finally from a couple of the younger teachers 'what Commonwealth Games'. I also would put this down to the time difference with very little coverage on when people were actually able to watch with coverage starting around 10.30 p.m. and ending about 8.00 a.m. while most of the staff at my work have to leave home no later than 7.00 a.m. to get to work so no time to watch them due to work commitments. I then thought I would ask the kids - and same response with the overwhelming 'what' being the reply so I was wondering where, if anywhere, people were actually watching the games.

I read an article a few days ago suggesting that the next games should be the last ones as they really aren't that important in the overall scheme of things and athletes have so many other bigger stages now and people have the chance to see them at these other events as well.
