Of course that's what it means. the public are always confined because royalty does not go into any crowd for security reasons.

what is different here is that this is a private area that the public will be able to go to if they want. And that is key - people who want to go can.

^^^The same is true for any elected HoS or Head of Government in most western nations. As a citizen you can come and see him/her but your proximity is likely to be tightly controlled. In all honesty it might be easier for me as an American citizen to see/meet the Cambridges than the Obamas.

I read the paddock announcement by KP as an answer to questions they had received as the christening was taking place during the tourist season (when Sandringham is open to the public- tho not on that day) so KP announced the paddock would be open as on other royal services at the St Mary Magdalene.

Oh, definitely. Having had experience meeting both presidents and royals, there's no doubt that the royals are much more accessible, and the security for royals is much, much more relaxed.

British Royals ‏@britishroyals Jun 29 The Queen, Philip, Charles, Camilla, the Middletons & Prince George will be at Princess Charlotte's christening at Sandringham on Sunday

Quote:
Members of the public have been invited to share in Princess Charlotte's christening this Sunday by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The royal couple have asked for the paddock outside St Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham, to be opened to the public so they can see the baby before and after her baptism.

The church itself will be open to invited guests only, but thousands of people are expected to turn out for a rare opportunity to see the fourth in line to the throne.

It will be the first time in living memory that the christening of such a senior member of the Royal family has involved the public in any way.

Well, I hope at least this means there will not be complaints like ti was with George: many fans said they were disapointed, because they had waited all day long to see George and all the were able to see were the rushing of cars.

If fans were disappointed it's their own fault. The palace announced the christening location well ahead of time and the Chapel Royal isn't visible from the street. The most they were ever going to get was cars driving in that was well apparent before the day.

Flowers brought by well-wishers to Princess Charlotte's christening on Sunday will be given to East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

Catherine's charity.

That's nice. What else can they do with all the flowers. I understand why people want to give flowers and little gifts but I wish people would just give donations in Princess Charlotte's name.

It's amazing how many words can say almost nothing.

You are certainly correct on that. I also have had that "honor" and found meeting a royal much more enjoyable and completely comfortable. American presidents and wives, not so much although fairly pleasant.

It would be fine in this case, but generally giving a donation to a charity in someone's name is a mixed blessing- the person is immediately targeted by dozens of other charities and it quickly becomes a nuisance.

That is true - but donations can be made anonymously.

Even donations made in someone's name?
How would you keep the person's name from becoming known, in that case?

If you sent cash in the mail with note and don't put a return address, the charity isn't going to know who it from.

Actually I was thinking donation boxes....After the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami I made a donation to one of the organizations. And as Maribel said, I was quickly overran with appeals from other organizations. Since then, any donation I make is anonymous when I can or in a donation box. After our dear Cinrit died, I made a donation into one of our local animal shelter boxes. They didn't know who donated or in whose memory. But I did. And the shelter benefited.
So those who want to donate to EACH could just quietly hand an envelope to one of the EACH volunteers. No fuss, no muss. Better than flowers. OK. Not as pretty but more useful.
