    Trooping the Colour 2: 2023 -

    A few comments: [......] Charlotte is very much the child in charge. Charles looked tired at the end and he has a busy week ahead. He needs to take things easy as well so time for Camilla to plan a week away in Scotland for him I think, after Garter and Ascot. Lady Louise appearance not a...

    Tiaras and Jewels guessing for upcoming events: 2024

    Will Princess Michael attend. She didn't attend the South African State Banquet nor the South Korean one. The Michaels of Kent retired from public life a few days after Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee celebrations although they did attend events around her funeral and Charles III's coronation...

    Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie's Fashion and Style Part 13: June 2022 -

    My understanding is that the criticism of the colour wasn't because it was an autumnal colour (whatever that is) but because the dress code appears to have been clearly blue and cream i.e. everyone else is in either light blue (Pippa) or cream (Catherine, Charlotte, Camilla and Carole) while the...

    The Future of the British Monarchy 2: Sep 2022 -

    Actually one of William's titles is 'Prince and Great Steward of Scotland' so referring to Catherine as Princess of Scotland would not be 'wildly inaccurate' as it is one of her titles.

    Order of the Garter, Ceremonies and Information 2: 2022 -

    Charles can give the Garter to whomever he likes. Unlike other honours the Garter and the Thistle are within the personal gift of the Sovereign and not the honours committee.

    Portraits of the British Royals

    I would suggest that the one of Charles was started by an artist and then his five year old was let loose and he couldn't be bothered to clean up the mess. It does look like a lot I have seen done by Kindergarten kids - a bit of a picture and then one colour thrown or painted over the rest.

    State Visit from the Emperor and Empress of Japan: 25-27 June 2024

    Yes. Better to postpone and actually be able to do some work by those accompanying the Emperor than have the visit simply as a show but no actual work able to be done. Remember that within a week or so it is highly probable that a new government will be in office with a different philosophy on...

    General News for Charles III and Queen Camilla Part 2, February 2024-

    I also suspect that the State Visit from Japan maybe delayed. Any meaningful decisions made during that visit (and the main point of these visits is for the representatives of the government to have the chance to agree to things like trade deals while the focus is on the Heads of State playing...

    If you consider that all there is a face and some hands and the rest is just red.

    I am not sure which is worse - Catherine's or the red monstrosity of Charles.

    State Visit from the Emperor and Empress of Japan: 25-27 June 2024

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-13448657/All-engagements-royal-family-election.html I know this is the DM but I thought it was relevant and highly likely to be correct at this time: Next month's high-profile Japanese State Visit - which has major trade and diplomatic implications -...

    British Royal Family Current Events 11: Sep 2022 -

    Officially, according to the CC, only William and the Gloucesters attended. The late Queen always included the York princesses in the CC when they attended with/for her but Charles is adamant that only working royals will get any credit in the CC it seems.

    I didn't think there was an age limit for page boys. My niece is planning on having her 14 year old cousins as her page boys.

    Maybe it is a 'wait and see' how he is on the day itself raising than saying he will be there definitely and having to pull out. If there is an event in London e.g. a memorial service at a small chapel say at Wellington Barracks I can see him attending that but it not being published in advance.

    Sorry for the delays over recent weeks but as I have said before my brother has been diagnosed with grade 4 brain cancer and the prognosis isn't good. I have spent most of today with him and the doctor told me 'maybe this time he won't go home or maybe he will but it is more likely weeks rather...

    Duties and Roles of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie 2: Discussion Sep 2022 -

    Tim would have to become a royal first. Currently he isn't one and I don't see Charles creating him as a Prince. I also don't see Beatrice being added to the working royals roster - especially after the announcement this week that about 200 charities are to lose their royal patronage. If there...
