William, Charles and Anne ride because they are Colonels of their respective regiments. The Prince of Wales for the Welsh Guards, Duke of Kent for the Scots Guards, Princess Royal for the Blues and Royals, and the Duke of Cambridge for the Irish Guards.

Henry would most likely become Colonel of The Blues and Royals but it's a rank currently held by his aunt.


The Duke of Kent no longer rides due to the stroke he suffered in 2013.

Prince Edward wears his London Regiment uniform as their Honorary Royal Colonel.

Prince Charles needs to practice his neutral looks or smile more.
He really DOESN'T.

You are absolutely right. Prince Charles is fully entitled to have a normal non-smiling facial expression.

I predict that in the future we will likely see Harry joining his brother on horseback should he become a Colonel of the regiment when a vacancy occurs.

Harry is probably behind his uncles for a guards regiment colonelship. Andrew doesn't have one and Edward's is a reserve unit not a regular army one. There will be a bunch of colonel switching when the Queen and Philip pass. Charles as King will be colonel in chief for all the guards regiments. William will probably go over to the Welsh guards replacing his father. So 4 of 5 guards regiments will probably have new colonels in the oncoming years.

Lord Linley's children are listed as attending in the CC,

The only absentee other than the very young was the Duchess of Kent. She usually attends the major church service events so I am wondering if she is ill?

I had been wondering the same thing. She usually attends the big extended family events at least. I hope the Duchess is okay. These folks are old now so you never know.

BBC News Channel and Sky News are already outside the palace, and our matchless Queen (media saying, but I agree of course ) is praised as no other again.

Thr Sky News Coverage has been enormous, almost as big as the Jubilee and much bigger than in 2006, and very very pro Queen as usual, but also pro monarchy.

Adam Bolton Have spoken to former pm's John Major and Tony Blair. Adam said on TV that HM is above politics, but know more than no other whats goes on in the political arena. He also said that HM have built an quiet influence since 1952 and that no Prime Minister will dare challenge the Queen. And I love all the very pro monarchy experts they have on air. Peter is doing a good job, he is aready in The Mall.

The BBC Coverage are even bigger and better, and very, very, very, very pro Queen, and very pro monarchy (even the royal reporters) and the experts are very good.

BBC Breakfast/News Channel are mainly about the Queen and they are outside Buckingham Palace and live around the country where people have street parties.

Peter was live on BBC Breakfast and when he was asked about the prices on the tickets for the the Patron's Lunch, he said the same as he did one Sky News yesterday. He said, this was my idea and it's not a state funded event, and we have to pay the workers.

Thank, Royal Norway.

I presume you are going to spoil us again today with running updates?

In one of the many small portraits of QEII on DK-TV yesterday it was said that QEII apparently got on well with all the twelve PMs under her reign - except for Margaret Thatcher, it was said they never developed a good rapport. - And illustrated it with a hilarious clip from Spitting Image.

Here is a pic from the clip: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/On-okY7cVhM/hqdefault.jpg

Thanks Mhuler! The Queen and Margaret Thatcher (who I'm not a fan of) were very different. We have from very reliable sources that HM saw Thatcher as a somewhat cold lady who didn't care for poor people.

BBC Breakfast have finished on BBC One, but the Coverage continues with Updates from BBC News Channel/Sky News betwen regular News - they've just sent live from Bristol and people were very enthusiastic with pictueres of HM and stuff.

I would have liked to be with my British mother, stepfather and half-brothers who live in the UK, but since I now live permanently in Norway with my own familly and work in my Norwegian father's family business, so I have to be here. But I took time off on Friday and have watched BBC One/News Channel, ITV through this the app Mediahhh, and I have access to Sky News as everyone has in Norway.

Sky News have spoken to HM's former cook and BBC News Channel have spoken to several royal authors and former advisers to the Queen. They all says that she's makes oss proud to be British and spoke about how beloved she is, and how much she have done for charity and the country, even the BBC host said she has a spesial place in the British peoples hearts.

BBC is on The Mall again and it's raining, but the patronages says they are so proud to have HM as patron.

Here in DK TV is running non-stop about the BRF and QEII in particular from 10.40 this forenoon to 01.45 tonight!
Albeit on one of the secondary, but nevertheless still high-rate, channels that is specifically aimed at the 40+ age group.

Very funny to see ordinary people in the royal parks in London, braving the weather to celebrate. BBC is reporting from Bristol again, the weather are better there than it was earlier.

What heck is happening.

On April 20th: The celebration was overshadowed by the sad death of Victoria Wood.

On April 21th: (her Birthday): Prince dies.

Today: Horrible news from Florida.

BBC was in The Mall again, and people were smiling despite the weather. Some of the Queen's patronages said that it helps to have the most famous lady in the world as their patron, and people in the royal parks said they loved the Queen to death.
