The reason Andrew sits in a carriage, like Edward, is because he wasn't a colonel of a household division. Both are colonels, but only those of household regiments ride in Trooping of the color. He is colonel of the royal irish and Yorkshire regiments.

The Grenadiers are a regiment of the household division, which means Andrew is now entitled to ride in uniform with Charles, William and Anne. It will be nice hopefully to see him do so in June.

I also suspect, now, that Harry will end up taking over the Duke of Kent's colonecy when he retires or maybe they will move Anne to that and allow Harry to take over the Blues and Royals as he served in that regiment.
Philip is also colonel of the queen's hussars, which may be intended for Harry (appointed near wedding). There is also a new regiment that hasn't been appointed a colonel. Seems more like likely IMO that Harry will be given one of these then have the Duke of Kent retire for him.

I am so happy for HRH. I never liked seeing him sit in the carriages, especially since he is one of the royals who has served during a time of war. I think this also has to do with the fact that Prince Harry is engaged, which could make the carriage seating chart a little tight. Once Prince George starts sitting in a carriage, which could be in 3-4 years, Harry and Meghan will most likely move back a carriage, sitting with the York Princesses, now that there are two available seats in the carriages.

Goodness me. And he wonders why people aren’t fond of him. Why does he make bombastic statements like this?

And he has none of Phillips's charm or panache when he says things.

It should see Andrew wearing uniform and riding rather than sitting in the carriage with his daughters.
I can't recall ever seeing Prince Andrew riding a horse. That of course doesn't mean he can't, just that I've never seen every photo of Prince Andrew ever taken!

I’m sure that any child of the Queen was in the saddle as soon as they could walk. How well Andrew has kept it up is anyone's guess. He has over 7 months to practice, so I expect he’ll be fine. The bearskin hat might be harder to get used to, especially if it’s very hot.

Here he is as a child:

My thinking is that perhaps this is Andrew's "official" Christmas message that he'd send out to those that have participated in Pitch at the Palace over the year. Its very probable that he has another, more personal, holiday greeting card that he'll send to personal friends and family? This is just a guess on my part.
