As we all know, the Daily Mail can be mercurial, perhaps when they seem to contradict themselves, Mercury is in retrograde or something and throwing them off? Dunno and really don't want to know.

At least its given us all some good conversation to express what we each see eh?

Agrees with you, as I almost always do.

Highlights from our beloved Queen's official Birthday celebrations from the British Monarchy YouTube channel - watch the whole video, but look at 0:56 when HM is explaining the planes to George:

It's a funny moment ... William's face in the aftermath and his interaction with the Queen more than anything!

I expect it was because they - The Royal Family - were on one of the rare displays of public duty for those few minutes - and we all know the Queen takes these few public minutes extremely seriously. Kate bending down to interact with her hilariously cross looking flower girl during the wedding balcony scene yes. William bending down during the fly-over in tribute to the Relm and the RF, not so much in HM's mind methinks!

It's basically "here's several reasons he's an adult, and he's gonna be king, but by God he still gets in trouble when he misbehaves in public".

I thought the interaction was adorable, and not at all him being "told off", but perhaps him being reminded what he was there for. In many ways he's not there for the fly over himself, but to be seen by the crowds, and him crouching down to point things out to George (while adorable in itself, and a great moment to see), it means that the people down in the street can't see William - he's too low.

Thinking about it, it actually kind of makes me feel bad for William - this is a very literal depiction of his struggle between balancing being a good parent and being a good Royal.

Her Majesty definitely nudged him and it is quite clear on the video slow motion that she looks quite stern and says Stand Up. I think it's a good thing to remember that this is on the net everywhere and has been since shortly after the BRF left the balcony. So no, it is not the DM sniping at William, it is pointing out what everyone else who watched or has seen since saw, namely William being reminded that this was an "Occasion" in fact a very special occasion and surprise, surprise, it was not all about George!

The acid swipe at HM's so-called "telling" behaviour is in direct contradiction to her actions because HM deciding to allow Prince George and Princess Charlotte out on the balcony is an extraordinary concession on her part and a complete departure from standard practice. Pre-schoolers, apart from wedding parties, are rarely seen there except in special circumstances. I would advise you all to Google "Children on the balcony of Buckingham Palace" and take a good look at what you see.

I don't believe there was an "acid swipe" (new expression to me! ) directed at the Queen by any poster on the forum.

So what if William lost the run of himself on the balcony. Army trained ... but Daddy too!

It was a light moment, we all enjoyed it!

That's not true. The Queen's children and grandchildren have been regularly appearing on the balcony (for Trooping) since they were young. Anne was two or three when she made her first appearance on the balcony. Charles was about four, Prince Andrew was one and Edward was 3 months.

Then you have the Queen's grandchildren. Harry was one, William was two, Zara, Peter and Beatrice were three (or about to turn three) and Louise and James were about five.

So Charlotte and George being on the balcony wasn't a concession, or complete departure from the standard. It was just normal practice.

In addition to your post soapstar - the Windsor cousins were all seen on the balcony from young ages. Sarah, David, James and Marina Olgivy were all seen at 4/5 years old, as were Prince Richard's 3 children.

Basically - no exception was made for George and Charlotte. It's obviously up to the parents whether they want their children on the balcony. Louise and James had to wait until they were 5 before they made it to the balcony but that was their parents' choice. The Queen probably has some say so but at the end of the day it's the parents' choice.

On another note - I noticed that Eugenie was only on the balcony when she was 8...

From the Fail article:
Quote:
But Sir Stuart Etherington, chairman of the Patron's Fund, the charity which benefited from the lunch and distributed its profits to good causes, described the fee as 'reasonable'.

He insisted Mr Phillips and SEL UK had not 'profited' from the event but was instead remunerated for organising the event and securing sponsorship.

He said: 'On the SEL fee, it was important to the trustees this was undertaken on a non-profit basis.

'We benchmarked the costs at a higher level than the fee so SEL were not, in our view, securing a profit. Indeed the trustees had a legal agreement that no profit would be made on the contract, so we think the fee is reasonable.'

Sir Stuart also said the publicly available accounts reflected 'only part of the story', as several additional donations means the final amount given to charity as a result of the event will rise to £780,000.

'These accounts are yet to be audited and once all funds available for distribution are dispensed, the charity will close and its accounts will be filed,' he added.

Buckingham Palace said: 'The Patron's Lunch was an enjoyable and celebratory event which has directly benefited a large number of Her Majesty's charities.

'Questions about the organisation and financial management are rightly a matter for The Patron's Fund Board of Trustees.'
