If you were a member or the BRF, what annual events would you look forward to?

I'd like to attend Royal Ascot and Trooping the Colour.

Definitely Trooping of the Color, and even though this isn't a public event, Christmas at Sandringham.

Mine would be Christmas at Sandringham, Garter Day, the State Opening of Parliament and all State Banquets as long as I wasn't sat next to Cherie Blair.

I'd enjoy Ascot, Christmas at Sandringham, and holidays at Balmoral. I guess Trooping the Colour would be fun, too.

I also think I'd get a kick out of standing on the balcony at BP with the rest of the RF. It must be an amazing feeling standing there looking out over all the crowds of well-wishers.

royal Ascot will be my favourite. But trooping the color will be the great honour and summer holiday in Balmoral will be fun and christmas in Sandringham will be homly. I think Windsor Castle very much and I think I would enjoy stalking and shooting even sharing with mens' prouds only.

But wouldn't you love the opportunity to be able to set her right about a few things?

I've ridden in two horse drawn carriages (the Ascot kind), once with a Queen lookalike as part of a local carnival procession and the second time dressed up as a Lady Mayoress for a commercial and I have to say the attention you get is quite exciting even for someone like me who's naturally shy and retiring. People wave at you, you wave at them etc and it's quite jolly.

Yes, I imagine it must have been very uncomfortable to be the focus of attention for someone with such a reticent nature.

Oh it was. But I assumed my best Queen Mother face and just waved. That's what I call duty.

If private : I would love to have horse riding with the Queen around Windsor Castle or having a nice lunch during the summer at Balmoral Castle.

If official event : A somptuous State Banquet and indeed Royal Ascot

Since the question is what I'd look forward to most if I were a member of the British Royal Family, I'd say as a member I would most look forward to August and the annual summer holiday at Balmoral away from the public.

When asked, at the beginning of the 2002 Jubilee year, which part he was most looking forward to, Prince Philip replied "August".
