Its so lovely. And so relatively normal.

And bollox to the royal haterz.

FiftyShadesOfBunting Fri 01-Jun-12 20:27:19

'normal' used very loosly. With the castles and ponies and diamonds and stuff.

Chubfuddler Fri 01-Jun-12 20:35:47

I think, in general, I'm not keen on him. But he's coming over rather well here.

CatsSleepAnywhere Fri 01-Jun-12 20:36:14

Lovely isn't it!

I am enjoying it too - I love archive footage like this. Having said that, the Australian trip they were just discussing was where Charles and Anne (who were, erm, 6 and 4?) got left behind for 5 months. Sad that if was ever felt that was the best option.

But I like seeing the family just interacting and playing. Also Winston Churchill brandishing a branch on the bank of the river at Balmoral. Cracking!

yanbu

Chubfuddler Fri 01-Jun-12 20:38:02

I bet prince Phillip was like Fa in the pursuit of love. Alternately roaring at and sobbing over his children.

cheesesarnie Fri 01-Jun-12 20:38:11

orienteerer Fri 01-Jun-12 20:39:56

Chubfuddler Fri 01-Jun-12 20:41:04

KazzaRazza Fri 01-Jun-12 20:43:45
