Yes he did date Anne and he has remained close to the royals ever since. He has also been Silver Stick in Waiting to the Queen.

CONGRATULATIONS to Zara and Mike. You planned your private wedding the way you liked it and looks like you enjoyed yourselves thoroughly. No crocodile tears shed but just bright sunshiny smiles.

[QUOTE=Lumutqueen;1295262]White is clearly not reserved for the bride as for two british weddings this year we've seen the bridesmaids and flowergirls in white.


That´s true! I cannot think of a single royal wedding in Britain the bridesmaids didn´t wear white: Edward (later Edw. VII) marrying Alexandra of Denmark, George V and Mary of Teck, Princess Elizabeth marrying Philip Mountbatten (the bridesmaids looked almost like brides themselves, just without the veil), the wedding of Prcss Margaret in 1960, as far as I remember also at the weddings of the Duke of Kent and his sister Prcss Alexandra (not 100 % sure), at the famous 1981 wedding the bridesmaids wore (cream-) white.
Also Sweden: The wedding of the King and Queen in 1976.
I´m sure there are more - all weddings with "white" bridesmaids!

Uhuh

I don´t like Zara's dress. It was quite boring and unflattering.

Also, who are to determine if "once is enough"? Rather rude of you.
I agree; you can be a bridesmaid in a Royal wedding more than once in a year. I was quite shocked that Lady Louise wasn't even there as a guest, as she was a guest Peter and Autumn's wedding and she was much younger then. Before "the other Royal wedding" I would have thought it was perhaps because of the media coverage, but since then Edward and Sophie have openly let their delightful daughter be photographed, so I was hoping Louise would be have been at Canongate too. She may well have gone but went in beforehand, but I doubt she went. Disappointment from myself really, as I adore Louise's personality!

Not rude, because there are many other young girls in Zara and Mike's circle of relatives and friends, who would dream to fill this honour.
It's good that their chance has come.

Princess Anne dated Andrew Parker-Bowles when they were very young, and they've been best friends ever since. It was Anne who supported him when his wife died, and who makes sure he is included in many royal events.


Several people have remarked that Kate looked bland; I think this was a deliberate choice on her part, to avoid upstaging the bride. She would hardly have worn a five-year-old dress if she wished to attract attention.

I thought Zara looked beautiful. Everything was perfect for her dress tiara everything. Lady Sarah chatto was very elegant as was Sophia. Kate, when she came out, gave me flashbacks of Diana with her sly smile and outrageous hat. Granted she did wear something from five years ago but she knew that people were going to talk about it and she would be front page news. Even though I wish she either didn't attend or went around the back entrance she still took attention away from Zara. I was more excited about this wedding than Williams. Sorry for my rant but just my opinion. 

Announcement of the christening of Lady Louise Windsor

Zara Phillips (b. 15 May 1981) was christened Zara Anne Elizabeth on 27 July 1981 in the Private Chapel, Windsor Castle, by the Dean of Windsor, the Rt Rev. Michael Mann.

Her godparents were: her uncle the Duke of York; the Countess of Lichfield; Mrs Jackie Stewart; Colonel Andrew Parker- Bowles; and Mr Hugh Thomas.

Thanks - I do remember now reading about Anne & Andrew years ago.

Personally I think it is a very good how Andrew & Camilla remain friends, they share children, grandchildren & Royal connections.

Anne is a true friend indeed.

I agree, she looked like she wanted 'to go in CK quickly', wanting to show support but not take too much attention away from the lovely couple.

Okay, at the risk of boring you with all my questions,
can you please tell me what the Silver Stick in waiting does?

You do have an interesting look at things and that is me putting it nicely - what nonsense to blame Catherine...
What should she have done then? Wear a coloured dress, a dark dress? Appear without a hat or only with a fascinator?

First off I'm not blaming Catherine but she knows she Is the new flavor of the month in the BRF so all eyes will be on her. Even if she came in in sweat pants and ugg boots she would have still been talked about. My point was that Catherine could have just worn an old hat to go with her old outfit so as not to bring attention to herself. But again she would still have made the news.

If you're following the traditional conventions.....if you're married, and you're using your title (ie Mrs), then yes, you are Mrs Fred Bloggs (let's say). If you're just introducing yourself, or to use your example, filling in a form where only your first name and surname are required, then you would be Ethel Bloggs. The use of your husband's Christian name only applies when you are using Mrs, followed by the Surname.

If you are either divorced or widowed, you then become Mrs Ethel Bloggs.

As I understand it, when a woman marries, she does automatically acquire her new husband's surname. Some women choose not to use it, which presumably is what Zara is doing. This was certainly the case when I got married, as we did look into the legalities of the whole surname issue.

Indeed, so an old or new hat would not have made the difference.

That explains it for me too, thanks!
