There is absolutely nothing wrong with tights. You won't catch me in a public situation (save for the beach or on vacation in the woods), in a dress/skirt, without tights. That's why I wear only pants (with rare exception -- weddings, funerals, fancy parties). I wear half-tights, aka: knee-highs, with pants. I don't like the feel of bare feet in shoes. ick.

Enough 'bout me.

KittyAtlanta is 100 per cent correct about pantyhose/tights. I feel that bare feet in shoes is a no-no because, as KittyAtlanta so correctly indicates, it's not a pleasant feeling and it is not hygenic either. You can launder pantyhose, but you can't clean shoe insides so easily.

I was also taught that Tights were not only more formal but also more ladylike (!) At this very moment I am trying to put together 5 outfits for Royal Ascot. [I aim to 'fit in' rather than be a fashion star by the way]. I have the honour to be in the Royal Enclosure and until very recently, bare legs were banned and the Guardians at the Gates used to inspect ladies to see that they were properly dressed [hats covering the crown of the head, no bare legs etc]. On a personal level, I just don't seem to be able to 'do' fake tans and so regardless of whether tights are compulsory or not, my legs need a bit of support/colour and smoothing all of which tights provide for me....

Thanks for sharing, KittyAtlanta,

Alex

I agree and I'm happy that she is being recognized as part of the extended family

There is a huge difference between buying a Coat of Arms and acquiring a Title.

Of course I know the difference, it just seems pretentious and unnecessary for Mr Middleton to buy himself a coat of arms, especially as his daughter would be given one of her own on her marriage to the heir to the heir.
He did this, it is said, to give his son and other daughter a coat of arms, which was obviously important to him, and could be bought.
I see it as a first step to the ascension of the Middletons towards nobility, a sign of what is to come. If this isn't social climbing at its absolute apex then what is?

At this point in time 'Party Pieces', the family company, doesn't have the Royal Warrant - Royal Warrants are given to the business not just an item sold by that business.

I wouldn't expect them to get one from the Queen. Charles, as Prince of Wales is able to give Royal Warrants and he might do so, as might William when he is able to do so (which won't be until he becomes the heir apparent/monarch).

Not yet, but I can't see why they won't in the future. Purveyors of party equipment, that is if they don't branch out to other areas in the meantime.

What I was getting at, was that the Queen may well refuse warrants, in case she might be accused of nepotism.

How can one find out whether a business has received a Royal Warrant ?

Wikipedia:
Royal Warrant of Appointment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The BRF only give out royal warrants to tradesmen, not the professions media, party planners etc.

There is a Members' directory for those who hold the warrant(s).
