This is Andrews first year as colonel, and the York Princesses are royals by blood. It would be remiss if they didnt give a salute frankly. Jack is not married into the RF yet, no reason for him to attend.

All about perception.....

I agree. When the window opened I could see him itching to get out to stand right at the front beside the Queen. He knows that the media wanted a good shot of Harry and Meghan but you could tell he was budging for no one. I think Andrew is struggling with the loss of status for him and his family as Charles' children marry and have kids and he is pushed further away from the throne. He's the only one of the Queen's children I really notice this about.

Both his new regiment and the royal family make it a really special occassion for their new royal colonel. I am sure thst is appreciated by the duke and his proud daughters.

He had an important role to play in trooping the colour as royal colonel of a household division and this was his first time, so it made total sense that he was given more prominence than a couple that just attended as grandchildren of the monarch. Whether that fitted the media's narrative is their problem. This was the narrative the BRF wanted to tell.

Who cares what the media wants? Andrew is The Queens son and in the lack of Prince Philip acted as the "second man" there. The man is 58 years old and has always been the second son, he knows this. People will just find anything they can to pick this man apart it's a real shame when yesterday he represented his father and mother so well.

It was a big day for Andrew and he did his mother proud. He'd been practicing his horsemanship diligently and it was his first appearance as a colonel of a household division and rightly deserved the spot he took.

He did not act as Second Man. That was the Prince of Wales, the most senior royal colonel in action and with both in royal rank as military rank way outshining his younger brother.

It does not matter where Andrew stood...the media still focused on Harry and Meghan even though they stood in the back, as well as the Queen, Cambridges and the children.

Regardless, he did an excellent job. If he hadn’t, that media would be blasting it in today’s papers!

Who stands that close to the Queen is decided not by the media or the public but by the Queen. The fact that she had her second son there was because that is where she wanted him to be ... not necessarily where he wanted to be but where his mother wanted him to be - beside her where his father used to stand as he now holds the rank his father held before him - Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

Everyone would have known what the Queen wanted and they stood where she wanted them. It was her birthday and she and she alone would have decided how prominent a position her children and grandchildren would have - not the media or the public.

I read an article in which a lip-reader said the Queen and Andrew were talking about the different types of airplanes flying overhead. https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal...-family-latest They both looked happy to be standing together and why shouldn't the Queen pick Andrew to stand with her? I'm sure she wants to take into consideration all her children...just because Charles and his family are the heirs doesn't mean all the others aren't equally the Queen's children.

Most photos I saw from today the Queen was flanked by Charles and Andrew on either side. I thought it made for great photos, the Queen in blue and the Princes in red uniforms, particularly in light of Philips absence.

The Prince of Wales was the first man that's why the poster called Andrew the 2nd.

Oh good grief. This nasty attitude toward both Prince Andrew and his daughters is positively infantile. They got the salute because as blood princesses they are entitled to it.

It was hardly surprising that Prince Andrew should stand beside his mother because it was a significant event both for him and his mother and she wanted him front and, centre so to speak, so everyone could see him and how proud she was of him. Instead of sharing HM's obvious happiness there is sniping about him "pushing himself forward" so the newlyweds could not stand there.

HM is quite clear about who she wants where and nobody is going to push their way forward. She encourages those she wants to come forward and expects a certain standard of behaviour on the balcony (as Prince William found to his embarrassment). Had she wanted Harry and Meghan behind her, they would have been there. Instead, this Trooping of the Colour not only marked HM's official birthday but was Andrews debut riding in the parade in his capacity as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

In the event, Meghan was really nervous and as Catherine discovered, the size of the crowd is quite intimidating. She was quite happy to stay at the back and, to be honest, she has a lifetime of 'Balcony Events' ahead of her. She and Harry were both happy for Prince Andrew to have his moment in the limelight.

It is the first time their father their father has been Colonel of the Grenadier Guards for Trooping of the Color. Only right that he takes the Salute and his family (daughters) join him. I see nothing pushy about it.


Maybe Jack was working, or maybe he isn't going to join in everything, even when he and Eugenie are married.
