Ok, I have seen the Duchess of Kent for sure next to the Duke, and Prince Michael and Princess Michael beside them, and Lord Frederick and Lady Gabriella behind them all. Also in the row behind, next to Lord Freddie and Lady Ella: Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor.

Prince Harry is sitting directly across from Prince William in first rows.
Prince Harry is on the so-called "Spencer side". Prince William sits next to the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles. Behind: the Wessexes, HRH the Princess Royal, Admiral Laurence....

The Duchess of Kent is absent. Maybe she's teaching today.

It looks like her next to the Duke, though, in the white hat with blonde hair exactly like the Duchess. Oh well.

The Gloucesters are all there.

The service is shown on NOS (Netherlands) as well, my HDD is recording it for later as I'm earning my life on office, of course. Nice to see the reactions on here, in the meantime.

Okay. Princess Anne was there. I thought that she was supposed to be elsewhere today? Ah well.The American and British commentators are just idiots. The one American (and BTW, I am American) just called Sophie Wessex, Zara Philips.

What a nincompoop.

I know, Lady K, I agree about the Queen, gorgeous purple outfit, and gorgeous brooch!

Yes, George McCorquodale almost fooled me again into thinking he was Prince Harry. But then I did double take and saw how much more filled out he is than Harry. But it is interesting Harry sat with the Spencers. That was a nice thing. The "boys" show loyalty to both clans. Good on them!

Princess Anne, and the Duchess of Gloucester, they look gorgeous today, wow!

I edited the guest list on page one, adding Peter Phillips, and others I saw. But what do you think? Anyone see Miss Autumn Kelly? Or Zara? I did not see Zara, but I can't imagine she's not there, unless she had an equestrian event to compete in.

The Duchess of Gloucester's hat was far too big. Nobody find her face underneath it to give the customary 2 kisses. Princess Anne on the other hand donned an old friend of a hat that we could only see from the back. Most sensible.

The only royal family member not present was Prince Andrew but his daughters where there and the Duchess of Kent was there too- her hair looked lovely and, considering her age, she looked almost like Helen's sister not her mother. I presume the seating of Harry and William was purposely done to show the respect for their mother's family.

Loved the male to male hugs and kisses of the royals

The Duke of York is in Malaya for the 50th anniversary of independance. The Duchess of Kent was indeed there in a very silly hat but looking quite sprightly and alot better than the death-warmed-up look we've been so used to for the past few years. No Princess Alexandra.

Queen Elizabeth II (L) and Prince Philip drive past well-wishers on their way to the Service of Thanksgiving for the late Diana, Princess of Wales at Guards Chapel in London, 31 August 2007. Thousands of people flocked to Buckingham Palace to see arrivals of the royal family and guests. August 31 marks the 10th Anniversary since Diana was kiled in a car crash in Paris

I want to say 'Bravo' to everyone who was there and paid respect to Diana. I'm a little disapointed by William's choice of speech but I'm so proud of Harry who found the right words to express his thoughts. I'm now more than ever 'in love' with royalty. I really liked the image of Harry smiling with Earl Spencer and Sarah McCorquodale at the exit of the chapel. The songs chosen were very poignant and I stay with the sound of applause in my head when the Royal Family got out. Long life to the Monarchy !

I have seen flashes of the service on the news. Well, when reading your sentence above I had visions of the Prince and the Duke trying their best to be miles away, but essentially I saw nothing special. Just the bunch in a bench.



Was there a sign outside Wellington Barracks saying: Men not allowed ? It did look like a gathering of readers of women's magazines!
