As usual, I loved to see HM with William.

QEII definitely has a new "plus one" to accompany her at various events. William has the opportunity to continue his "on the job" training for his future role and IMO they seem to enjoy being together.

From the pics we can’t see if Catherine have the family order. The Queen, William and Catherine make my head hurt over that situation. Also, I don’t know why William and Catherine don’t like using the State cars forbevents like this. Stop using those darn official cars for state events. Learn something from older royals.

Looks of concern from the Cambridges as they had just witnessed one of their motorcycle outriders coming off his bike at speed.

Then don't use state cars as they don't have access to them. The state cars are only used by the Queen and C&C, who have thd Rolls previously used by the Queen Mother

They do have access to them. They just choose to use their official cars more.

Well they did use State cars for the church service for the Queen's 90th and some other events. Personally I think its just easier and for security reasons, remember when Charles and Camilla's car was attacked it was commented that those big big cars are harder to move around London and easier to attack.
The fact is most people don't know the reception is happening so there will not be big crowds lining the route that need/want to see W&K (unlike the highly publicised events they have use state limousines for) so the "regular" Bentley will do.

I wonder if we will get group photo of HM and senior royals like last time?

Is that a statement of fact or an assumption on your part? Can you back up your statement please?

Muriel, they have access to the State Cars. William and Catherine usually use them for Trooping the Colour, The Jubilee services, opening of the 2012 Olympics, and Remembrance Sunday. It’s just for this Diplomatic Corps Reception, they choose to use their regular official car.

All facts.

There is no doubt that W&C have used the state cars on a few occasions, usually those that involve a ceremonial procession or arrival. For events like those, more junior royals like the Yorks and Wessex families get yo use them as well. However, other than the Rolls used by C&C for ceremonial events, the cars are only used by the Queen and the DoE. IMO, they are not available for other members of the BRF to use more generally.

What is the difference between state cars and official cars?
Both different from personal cars I presume?
