As you can see I wrote Edward (Duke of Kent), he’s not riding this year he’s in a carriage, as written.

Edward, The Earl of Wessex is not there no, but Edward The Duke of Kent is in the second carriage with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. He is a royal colonel and would usually ride but obviously due to age has not.

And yes, the Queen had her grumpy trooping face on, as usual during the carriage processions for the Birthday Parade. But we must remember that this is HM as Head of the Armed Forces, not the smiling monarch on public display waving to people, as we normaly sees for open car/carriage processions during Jubilees and milestone birthdays (read more in post 1504).

Huw Edwards already provides splendid commentary on BBC One.

Sky News is as usual not showing it in its entirety, so watch the BBC/TIME links in post 1512:

Nice symbolism with Catherine and Camilla in the lead carriage. Two future queens riding together.

Meghan seems to be a fan of the flying saucer type hats.

They've been together before in the carriage, several times. With Harry.

Yes but Harry’s in the second carriage now. Just the two future Queen consorts in the first carriage.

Happy they didn’t put all four together

Is the inference that Harry's been demoted!

They'll probably have all four together next year.

I'm happy to see that Prince Harry as a married man now gets to ride in his own carriage with his wife Meghan instead of riding along in a carriage backing the crowds!

I think Camilla and Catherine in their own carriage made for quite a lovely symbolism. Also, a nice gesture in the wake of the whole 'side-eye' speculations that were blown out of proportion. The ladies looked lovely in blue at the front.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their own carriage (accompanied by a surprise guest in the DoK) also made for a lovely picture. No longer 'Prince Harry', the professional third-wheeler, but rather the 'Duke of Sussex' and at his side his lovely Duchess.
