Would love to go along to represent our Family, but we'll see.
it is indeed a very special place: I had the good fortune to visit Juno Beach museum and was literally blown away by the power of history that is present on the Embarkation beaches. Do visit, if you have a chance.

No you aren't. If you don't know it's there, that's not being stupid. That's just not knowing about something being around here and we've all done it. No harm, no foul. :)

Let's hope Prince George makes a short, brief appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show.

We probably won't see George officially until the balcony appearance after Trooping.

I don't know, it's hard to even get his parents to attend the flower show. Yeah, I think the next time we see George will be after the Trooping of the Colour on the Palace balcony.

George's facial expressions +Raf fly past = photo gold.

Too bad William takes his hat off for the balcony appearance. George would be all over that bearskin trying to pet it like Lupo.

Especially if he was wearing his "Daddy's Little Co-Pilot" shirt.

One year olds are so precious and amusing to watch at their reaction to new and different things. My youngest was fascinated by pictures coming out of a Poloroid camera and would run to grab the picture as it came out and nylon clad feet.

I really don't expect to see George at the balcony appearances for a few years yet but one never knows.

The balcony appearance is less than 10 minutes long. Nothing that George hasn't done already on the tour. They can't really hide him away like Sophie does with James. He will be 11 month old then. His daddy can carry him out, point out the planes and then they go back in.

The royals usually take their children/babies out on the balcony after the Trooping of the Colour. The royals been doing that since George V's reign. I think it's very possible that we will see George with his parents on the balcony, if, he's awake and not in a total bad mood.

Wouldn't it be lovely to see Prince Charles holding him on the balcony.

Kate's sapphire engagement ring now worth £300k - 10 TIMES more than when it was bought for Princess Diana - so how does it measure up to Kim Kardashian's rock and Michelle Obama's sparkler?-
