But I don't think it is important what he wants at that point but what is good for the RF. Cutting down on the Royal titles is a good idea but still I think the son of a queen's daughter who accepted the title of a "Princess Royal" for herself should be knighted for his service to the RF. Marrying and wanting kids is a service for the RF, IMHO.

In former time it was standard procedure for any Royal descendant close enough to the souverain to know him/her personally who reached adult age to be knighted. As knighthoods are still around in GB, I guess that's what should happen to Peter Phillips. Sir Peter and Lady Phillips has the right ring to it, better than Mr. and Mrs. Peter Phillips. Mark Phillips, his father, at least was an officer.

That's right, it was. I always smile when I think of Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor at St George's. I wonder if her Grandfather has told her of the connection with her Swedish Great-Aunt? I hope so and I hope that she takes inspiration from her.

So you mean thats the one the whole family stood on the steps waving to the couple?I do not think so, if it was that one and near a lady wearing light purple (Lady Sarah Chatto), that would be Viscountess Linley.

I disagree with this. I think he has the right to decide for himself whether he wants official titles or not. Times have changed and he's not *that* close to the throne. The Royal Family won't be worse off when he does not have a title.
Marrying and having children is a case of the couple itself, it does not have to do with your position in the Royal Family.
What if a royal couple doesn't want children, should they be 'punished' or forced into parenthood because it's a decent thing to do when you are in the Royal Family?

Of course, everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion, but I find this too old-fashioned and so I don't agree with it.

The way Queen Louise is described eg her taking walks with the king through the streets of Stockholm without protection officers or other entourage or going shopping on her own in Gamla Stan would at least please this Louise's parents, I guess.

No it's not near the woman in light purple, we must be looking at different videos.

But that's what monarchy is all about: tradition and passing-on the bloodlines. If that doesn't count anymore you honestly don't need these people around anymore.

Found these photo's from the Getty Images website, some include what some people may think is Lady Louise with her mum.

The pictures are so absolutely lovely! I haven't been able to find the picture of Lady Louise and her mommy though, but maybe I just didn't recognise them! Prince Harry is so sweet in all these pictures, especially with his grandma and with Zara!!

mmmmm the gown looks ok. sweet but no surprises. i thought she could have done better. the bridemaids gown is very pretty. lovely spring colour.
one more thing, the gown reminded me of a bit of princess grace gown ie the lace top and the waist sash.

I know, but in that respect I see monarchy more like prison (remember what happened to Princess Margaret in the 50s?) than just tradition and passing on the bloodlines. Even monarchies cannot remain behind in the times, IMO.

I just think that the monarchy won't die just because some people choose to live their life the way they want to instead of conforming to 'royal expectations'.
Lots of people think being a royal is nothing more special than being a commoner, and the younger royals seem to at least partly agree with that. Hence the 'no title, please' wish.
Of course, being a royal does place you in a different position in life than the average man and woman, but it doesn't mean you can hold yourself up in an ivory tower. Society does not accept that anymore.
I believe there are kingdoms that still live by that way, but in Western Europe not so much anymore, and all the better I think.

I thought the Queen looked lovely the only problem I had with the ensemble was the black gloves, handbag and shoes. They looked too harsh against her beautiful outfit.

That isn't Lady Louise Windsor on the steps it is Serena Linley with her daughter Margarita
