Yep, I am 100% sure the slippers definitely were at Coworth Park after the day reception seeing that additional photo from Misha. She and Benita are walking on the paths in the Stables accommodation area (photo).

I have a question not sure if anyone can help me out. Obviously due to restrictions media was not allowed to photograph anyone but Harry and Meghan leaving Windsor Castle(and we know there are various alternative exits too) but I know there was press down the street which saw some cars arriving (as we see in Daily Mail and the Telegraph) my question is whether there is any alternative entrance to Frogmore? I am just wondering how any press that was there missed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arriving as well as Prince Charles and Camilla(I realize these two could have arrived prior to the press arriving at Frogmore) and obviously Harry and Meghan (though their arrival was mentioned somewhere as well as Charles and Camilla's departure)

Hope it's ok that I post these links.
You can see the photos here:

The bus was at one of the gates to the Home Park. There's a network of roadways within the gates that isn't open to the public, and Frogmore is on one of those roads. Some of the attendees probably came directly from the castle, and never had to travel on a public road at all. Bagshot Park (the Wessexes) and Royal Lodge (the Yorks) are south of Windsor, so they'd probably use that entrance to get in (there's a route from Royal Lodge to Frogmore that stays in the parks, but it goes down the Long Walk which may have been blocked by the fencing and the media).

This is fantastic thank you so much for this information it is really helpful!

Also I just found this tweet from royal correspondent James Brookes. It's quite interesting especially if you know nothing about Windsor. I also recall when the Queen left for church the next morning she used an alternative exit as Long Walk was still being cleaned up. https://twitter.com/jamesbrookes_/st...04083053924352

Is there any confirmation that Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp and his sisters attended the evening reception?

Not sure but I know Lady Kitty Spencer and her sister Lady Eliza went along with their mother Victoria Aitken.

Just so I understand clearly is what your saying basically that if the Yorks and Wessex's didn't change at Windsor(I have heard William and Kate had their stuff at Windsor so they changed there)then they would have used a public road to get to Frogmore hence why they were photographed? Would the same apply for the bus carrying the guests from the hotel I can't quite remember the name right now.

William, Kate and their family stayed at Windsor through Sunday, so yes, they probably changed at Windsor and did not have to drive on a public road to get to Frogmore.

The Yorks probably changed at Royal Lodge and the Wessexes at Bagshot Park, their homes in the area.

Yes, the Yorks and Wessexes would have changed at home. There is no need for them to have brought clothes to Windsor palace and change there. Just like any guests would have returned to their hotel to change. There was a large gap of time between the receptions. The Wessexes would have also had their kids who wouldn't have gone to the evening reception and would need to be taken home.

Perfect thanks to both of you and again to wbenson. Since I don't live in the UK I don't know too much about Windsor so I had no idea about these private roads. Yes I knew that Frogmore itself was private estate and the area was cordoned off but the rest about the roads and such is all brand new information for me so thank you again

Neither Harry nor Meghan put their seatbelt on in the sportscar heading to Frogmore.

Actually, neither does HM or Prince Philip, etc when they are at Windsor, Sandringham or Balmoral.

If its anything like it is here in the US, the buckle up laws pertain only to private roads. If these people are driving on private land, they're OK.

Wait did I misunderstand that? I know nothing about US law since I'm in Canada but wouldn't it be part of the law to wear a seatbelt while on a public road more so then private road? I mean buckling up to me should be done anywhere you go but that's just my opinion. Plus I thought private lands = private roads...well for the most part I guess. I mean I'm sure most private lands also have some sort of public road... Then again I'm prob wrong I know nothing about all this since I live mostly in the city so lol

I assume typo, and you mean the buckle up law only pertains to Public roads.

As long as it is a private road, one that the general public does not have regular access to, seatbelt rules don't apply.

Also if cars were not fitted with seatbelts, some older cars are not, you cant be required to wear one. This may apply to some of the queen's cars we have seen used like at the wedding. The jaguar Harry drove should, as it is just modeled after an old one.

Thanks for catching that. It was a typo. It should have read that the buckle up laws pertain to *public" roads and not private. Ooops.

I'm relieved it's a typo for a while I thought I was going nuts. I was like wait so all these years I've thought laws pertain to public roads when really it's private you should have seen how confused I've been the past few hours

No chance the kids stayed at Windsor castle overnight? I only say that since I know Windsor castle has tons of rooms. I have no idea if they usually do or not. The thought came to me after we saw pics of Lady Louise going to church with the Queen yesterday. Although the first guess seemed to make more sense in terms of why we saw pics of the Wessexes and Yorks on the roads but no one else. I'll choose to believe the first

I just saw the dress Priya wore to the evening reception; it was so spectacular.

I don't know why they would. Bagshot park is only 15 minutes away from Windsor Castle. It wouldn't make sense for the kids to stay at the castle. Windsor castle is massive, and while it has Many guest rooms, it doesn't actually have any apartments. Well it has one, the queen's. It wasn't a matter of what to do with the kids for an hour or two when their parents were at the day time reception. It was a long evening affair, after a several hour break. Leaving the kids in guest rooms at Windsor castle all night, while the family was at Frogmore house, makes little sense. The Cambridge kids are another matter, as they don't have a home in Windsor.

Louise went to church with the queen, and likely was staying with her. But that was at Balmoral. In Scotland, Louise and her parents would be staying at Craigowan with the queen on the estate.

Makes sense to send the kids home to their own home. They could spend their Saturday night doing whatever they wanted at home. And sleep in their own beds. No need to be cooped up in bedrooms all day at Windsor.

Thank you for this. As I said I really donít know much about Windsor Castle or any of the Royal Households around that area so I had no idea Bagshot was that close by. Make total sense. Also yes you are so right it was Balmoral we saw Lady Louise going to church with The Queen not Windsor I donít know why I didnít put that into consideration before I typed all that up
