The skirt she's wearing seems a little too formal for what was probably quite a rough-and-tumble day out.
Charlotte is at the age where she might very well have wanted to wear the skirt, even if mom knew dungarees or jeans would have been a better choice.

It seems to me that the Phillips kids, the Cambridge kids and the Tindall kids are going to be a tight circle. It is nice to see the relationships continuing with the children that the parents have with each other too.

It’s so crazy that Prince George wore a similar kind of sweater from Columbia that I used to wear in high school. Cool!

I love this picture. William and George have the same stance, both with hands in pocket.

You're probably right. Charlotte seems to be very determined in what she wants - even HM has said that Charlotte is the boss of George so I can imagine that she probably wanted to wear the skirt (especially since George is dressed more suitably for the occasion). Getting children to wear appropriate clothes and not what they want to is a hard task! I remember wearing a Disney princess dressing up dress to the supermarket when I was about Savannah's age even though it was a pretty weird thing for anyone else to go shopping in. But kids get away with it!

William does not look happy in this picture. My guess is that he sees the photographer taking pictures of his family.

That's exactly what I thought, he hates them being photographed.

Unfortunately he knows the rest of their lives they are going to have to deal with that...it can't be a surprise though..they are always photographed when going to these public events.

He could have at least smile. I am inclined to think it was all a PR showing after the "Hanbury affair". "See what a happy family we are!"
Zara and Peter and their families have shown us that the horse trials are a PR goldmine. Everyone loves carefree photos of kids eating ice cream and having the time of their lives rolling down hills or riding in go karts.

Well, in this public setting, William should be happy for his kids being seen having a great time with their cousins. Lord knows we don’t get to see much of them at all.

I am not surprised he wasn't smiling...he doesn't want to make them money to begin with and he resents the hell out of the media. Can't hardly blame him.

I don't think it was PR..they do this every year (horse trials) with Zara and/or the Meades.

All a PR move

I think this is what the Cambridges hate, being seen during “off time”.
Did they stage this meet up on purpose?

Whilst it's totally understandable that the Cambridges want privacy, they must realise that there's a 95% chance someone will photograph them in such a public setting (especially if they're with other relatives, such as the horse trials here). They're such high profile members of the BRF that they'll be bound to turn some heads if they attend an already public event. I wouldn't expect the same from them if they were photographed popping off to the shops (because that's an invasion of privacy) but this is an event that will already get some coverage because it's a public competition.

I think when they are going about their errands ..to the store, walking to a house etc they should be left alone.

Something like this, a very public event I think while yes I realize it's a pain and they don't like it ...this would be an acceptable venue to snap some pics. If nothing else it can help ease the kids into what to expect...no one is running after them with cameras, cornering them or trying to lure the kids etc.

But I can fully understand why they hate it.

We're assuming that William wasn't smiling because he was being photographed. There are a zillion other reasons possible for him not smiling at that frozen second in time. Perhaps he had gas. Perhaps he was wearing new shoes that pinch. The possibilities are endless.

I don't think the Cambridges had an expectation of privacy at a very public event, where William's cousin was riding. It is like when William is playing polo and Kate takes the kids. They knew they would be photographed.

The event was very near Anmer in Norfolk. It was a horse event that Zara and her family were at--I think they went to see Zara ride and spend time with the Tindalls.

Personally I think so. After all, if one doesn't care to be photographed the horse trials is not the right place to go.

THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE TO ATTEND ANZAC DAY SERVICE

Westminster Abbey, London

Thursday 25th April, 2019

The Duchess of Cambridge will attend the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey on Thursday 25th April.

Anzac Day has been commemorated in London since the first anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1916, when King George V attended a service at Westminster Abbey and more than 2,000 Australian and New Zealand troops marched through the streets. Since then, Anzac Day has become an important moment to recognise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who died during the landings, and to honour the sacrifices of men and women in all wars. Anzac Day is commemorated as a public holiday in both countries with memorial ceremonies held at various locations.

The Duchess of Cambridge will join guests, including the Australian High Commissioner, at the Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving. This will be a traditional church service, incorporating an ‘Act of Remembrance’, the Last Post and Kemal Ataturk’s words from Anzac Cove read by the Turkish Ambassador to the UK.

The Duke of Gloucester will also attend the service
