The Duke and Duchess of Kent are particularly well-known, because they presented the Wimbledon trophies for years. Anyone over 35 will remember the famous occasion in 1993, when the Duchess comforted the late Jana Novotna after she lost the final from being 4-1 up in the deciding set. Princess Alexandra and the Gloucesters aren't as well-known, but certainly everyone knows who they are.

Some of their children were also well-known at one time - Marina Ogilvy always used to be in the gossip pages, one way or another, and so did Lady Helen Windsor who was very glamorous when she was younger (and still is now!).

Louis did fine the majority of the time. He was active and wanting to move around but was friendly and listened to his mother for the most part.. Kate kept him occupied non-stop (William definitely had the easier job having nice calm chats with George) and when he stopped listening and got obnoxious she took him out.

I also noticed the two older cousins in the second row would pop in every so often and wind him up. There were a couple of times when Louis was sitting quietly until they got his attention. Again, something I think many kids that age would do when left to their own devices, but IMO the girls’ parents should have told them to settle down and let the younger children be.

Mia was indeed quite active. Mike talked about the event on his podcast (after being prompted).

I read somewhere that the duke and duchess of Gloucester also attended but I didn't see any footage of them (but also hardly any of the York princesses and their families, so that doesn't say much).

More over, you might want to include Wolfie's full name. His surname is Mapelli Mozzi (just like his father); Woolf is his middle name.

I think it's on this page, just below the photo of Lili:

I love that she's wearing sneakers. I'm 40 years younger than her, and I will absolutely NOT wear anything except supremely comfortable shoes, so I understand why she chose them :)

I did see the Duchess of Gloucester at the pageant in a pic from Getty Images. Probably the Duke was there.

Don’t know whether this is the correct thread for this article but it refers to a question that was asked of Australia’s Governor General and his wife when attending the Jubilee celebrations in London.

https://www.news.com.au/entertainmen...8aa68abfb2dd50

After attending a Service of Thanksgiving, General Hurley was asked by waiting reporters about the possibility of Australia becoming a republic.
His said a “new discussion” would be had once the Queen's reign ended.
General Hurley also said the Queen had lots of “emotional support” from Australians but that could change when a new monarch ruled.

Not a particularly diplomatic response considering he was attending a Thanksgiving service for the Platinum Jubilee.
I am not saying it was not an honest answer but could have been presented more diplomatically.

All he did was state the position in Australia and one that has been made by numerous PMs since we had the referendum in 1999. The issue will be revisited when the Queen dies (although the current PM has appointed a 'deputy minister for the republic which suggests it is being discussed at government level in serious terms at the moment).

I still think it unseemly to discuss somebody dying which in effect is what he did. He could have said something like that is a discussion for the future.
I am not for one minute claiming he said something which was not accurate.

I know how feel if my family discuss who is getting what when I pop my clogs.

It is a commonly said comment down here - 'we will discuss it when the Queen dies' so nothing wrong to Aussies as it is where we are in this discussion. Poms don't understand that concept I suppose and see it as disrespectful but to Aussies it was perfectly fine as it was simply stating the views held by both sides of politics and the views that have been expressed for two decades now. He was asked a question and answered it and in light of the change of government to the very pro-republican Labor Party with the new 'deputy minister' it was a question he was always going to get and so he gave the largely official view.

I didn't see the queen's nephew the Earl of Snowden or either of his children, Charles and Margarita.

We're they in attendance

They were at the Service of Thanksgiving and the event at the Guildhall afterwards. I didn't see them at anything else and they aren't listed in the CC as attending anything else (but then for most of the other events, other than Trooping, neither are the York's, Philip's or Tindall's.)

I thought the Jubilee was splendid, and I'm so glad I got to go!

The only disappointment was that I couldn't access the Mall for Trooping, but that happened to so many people who were let down. We kept thinking we could get through but they kept closing the streets. (Not surprising; there were probably twice as many people in the streets around as there were in the Mall.)

When they closed Trafalgar Square, we gave up and ducked into a pub to watch it on television.

Still, it was great to be there!

I saw quite a few other members of the family in the background: Lady Davina, various Kent grandchildren, Ogilvys, etc. They were several rows behind the main royals, behind government dignitaries.

An artist did a beautiful drawing of the Queen and Paddington (plus corgi). Even Hugh Bonneville wanted one! https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-humber-61757555
