Yes, I think all of them look lovely, including the Queen in bright blue.

Yes .... with Harry.
I always thought that bachelor Harry was "upgraded" into the future consorts carriage the previous years.
Now as a married man, he can have his own carriage, leaving the two "senior" duchesses together, reinforcing the symbolism of the "team future queens consort" (and the coordinated outfits are a nice touch too).

No. He might be waiting back at BP.

Who is/was standing w/the Queen on the dais? Kent? or DOE? I guessing not Philip since why wouldn't he ride with her if he was?

Yes, it was the Duke of Kent. They said so on the commentary on Sky.

My favourite royal commentator, Robert Hardman (author of Our Queen and writer of several BBC/ITV documentaries about HM) is now joining Edwards in the studio (live links in post 1512).

Don't they usually ride together at those kinds of events (given that her respective husbands are riding on horses) ? I don't see anything new or special or about it.


It would be symbolic if Camilla were in the same carriage as Queen Elizabeth II, but that is obviously not the case.

There are two Prince Edwards - The Earl of Wessex and the Duke of Kent.

Edward - Earl of Wessex has been in China this past week but I am not sure if he is still there as I don't have any CC since 6th June.

Edward - Duke of Kent has been the honourary colonel of the Royal Scots Regiment for many years and has regularly ridden in the parade but since his stroke a few years back he has ridding in a carriage only.

Raining on parade + 1
It's the first time they are together in their very own carriage. Period.

No George and Charlotte on the balcony as the Queen arrived back. Nice to see Savannah and Isla though.

More likely they will have George in the front carriage next year. He will then be about the same age William was when he started riding in the carriages and as the future King takes precedence over Harry.

This is a clear sign that Harry has been moved down to allow for his nephews and niece to eventually take their place ahead of him.

They might come out in 15 minutes. If not, I am a bit surprised too.
