I really love to watch all the ceremonial occasions. The precision of the soldiers is magnificant. I'm sure that, deep down, even though there's plenty of rehearsals, they wouldn't swap their places. Do wonder whether those shouting the orders suffer from sore throats for a few days!
I do know that Princess Anne has 'connections' with the uniform she dons, but I still don't think it's correct. As for Edward, enough said. I think it's an insult to whatever uniform he decides to wear at any particular event. My daughter met him many years ago when she was on work experience at The Really Useful Company. Don't think she was that impressed. She was eating a bag of hula hoops at the time and he asked what she was doing. Fortunately, being a very well brought up girl, she was polite. He was in his theatrical mode at the time. That lasted well too didn't it.
Do remember the late Princess Mary. Austere looking lady.
I don't like all the hangers on and wish they would be made to go out and earn their own living but I like the main players. Been a fan since the Queen married in 1947. She was simply my Fairy Princess.
