Can anyone identify for me what uniform Prince Edward is wearing?? Looks good!

It's a shame that here in Canada we can't see it, but I doubt that enough people would get up so early to watch it to make it worthwhile for the CBC to buy the broadcast rights. :(

I wonder who will become Colonel of the Grenadiers once Prince Philip either retires or is not longer with us. Harry or Andrew?

Looking on the balcony photos,I can conclude that the whole atmosphere is very facinating,especially admiring William and Kate.I am glad that the most of Kents were present,though I wonder why the other closer relatives were not present on the balcony.If I am not mistaken,Princess Beatrice ,Lord Nicholas Windsor,Lord Downpatrick and Lord Fredrick Windsor were absent.

I don't know why, but it always annoys me to see Edward in uniform when he never served.

I suppose I'm unreasonable, since others in the RF didn't either, but it just seems like self-aggrandizement to me.

Haven't we had discussion about his uniforms?
It certainly is a new one which I have never seen before and google isn't answer my many search questions.

Per Twitter-
@orderofsplendor Prince Andrew has no army appointments, hence why no uniform. Edward on the other hand does, hence the uniform.

Apparently Beatrice is at a wedding this afternoon with Catherine, (info courtesy of Mia_mae), so I wonder why she didn't show herself today.

Its funny how we see what we see. I definitely felt I was looking at a functional family with complicated - but working - relationships. However, I did not see happiness - I saw 'good form'. Practiced smiles, betraying nothing. Newlyweds are always happy and everyone likes to look at pretty people in love - so they don't count. (Besides which, old aunties are demanding - its been over a month since the wedding - where's the baby!?! )

It strikes me how complex and difficult it must be to be 'on show' like that - watched in the nano-seconds, pictures popping left and right. To me the Duchess of Cornwall looked strained in the carriage - who knows why - shoes pinching her feet, lumbago acting up - I jest, but you know what I mean. One wonders, though, of the story behind that moment caught, or was it just the camera being unforgiving?

What do you say to each other standing up there on the balcony being watched? Especially as one knows there are lip-readers hanging on every utterance. It looks so uncomfortable to me - like something endured.

So we see something different - each of us. I saw 'good form'. And complexity.

Where was Princess Anne? Especially as I thought I saw her husband behind the Queen - or was I mistaken?

Its always charming seeing little children up there - what an experience it must be for them!

Were Peter, Autumn, Zara, or Mike even there? I noticed none of them attended Epsom either.

My new favourite image : Lady Louise . She's so pretty. Louise appeared to love every second of the morning. It was adorable. There was a moment on the balcony when Prince William told her to look to the sky for the Red Arrows and her face filled with glee. Too adorable.

This is also adorable. Sophie looked very pretty today, as did Catherine. I LOVED Catherine's headpiece. Her hair is stunning.

Perhaps Zara etc. are busy. Princess Beatrice wasn't there either. I hope Zara puts in an appearance at Ascot as I love for her hats there! They are such a highlight, positive and negative!

Regarding Edward's uniform, the commentator (I think it was Huw Edwards) said it was something to do with him being Colonel of something related to Scotland. Perhaps he wore it as the theme of the day was Scotland?

I saw Princess Anne during the parade on horseback of course, never saw her on the balcony. I'm not surprised at not Zara, Mike, Peter and Autumn.

I don't think that Peter and Zara were at last years Trooping. Peter and Autumn usually show up at Ascot...and they will most likely all be at Windsor tomorrow.

I can't remember Zara ever attending Trooping. She at least hasn't in many years.
