Let's hope for some neutral press for Remembrance Sunday. I was hope William would also fly out to Japan for the rugby.

Thank you, Queen!

Thanks, Queen.

New thread, all sparkly and shiny!

Thank you QueenoftheAndals.

I guess there is no way of doing both Rugby and Remembrance Sunday is there? Not without using a particularly gas guzzling form of transport anyway! I think Harry is the English patron and William is the Wales one but logistically it’s all a bit tight for anyone to do both.

InvisibleWomenMustBeRead Tue 29-Oct-19 12:42:08

Thanks for the new thread. I'm so glad Harry is flying out for the rugby and also wish William would go too. It's fantastic for England and would be a great show of support for the country and unity with each other and hopefully shut all they naysayers up! Plus it means that hopefully Remembrance Sunday will be about the occasion and not the brothers first time together in public (& then we can properly appreciate the clothes without the distraction).

Isn't the final this Saturday and the Remembrance Service the following week? It would be easy enough to attend both for both brothers.

FawnDrench Tue 29-Oct-19 12:55:49

Yes they are a week apart on consecutive weekends, so feasible to attend both.

FiveTwoFaster Tue 29-Oct-19 13:10:42

Oh yes! Of course they could - I’m ahead of myself because of poppies!

BlingLoving Tue 29-Oct-19 13:12:10

I bet if Wales had made the final William might have gone!

Thanks for the new thread Queen. 🙂 I quite like CPM's skirt - is it blue?

Yep, rugby final and Remembrance Sunday are a week apart, so should be do-able.

Talking of Remembrance Sunday, was it last year the photographers captured the side eye between Camilla & Kate re HM?

Thank you!
Will be back later with my report of the Angela Kelly book

BlingLoving Tue 29-Oct-19 13:26:42

@curlywurly - yes please. Although frankly, I'm probably going to buy it no matter what. The Hello articles all claim it was done with Queen's blessing. Which is interesting as there seem to be a lot of anecdotes about her. I mean, so far, they're all amusing and show her as a real person but still.

CurlyWurlyTwirly Tue 29-Oct-19 13:31:33

It is so far 80% about Angela Kelly and how she does her role for the Queen. HM is mentioned in various anecdotes.
There’s some great photos of the Queen looking very relaxed!
Also Angela changing the Pearl / emerald drops on the Vladimir tiara.
I’ll see if I can post and photos!

Thanks for the new thread Queen

Thanks Queen smile

CurlyWurlyTwirly Tue 29-Oct-19 13:37:36

I was <clutching my pearls> a bit shock at the first photo!

I’m guessing the Queen wants a different side of her to be shown; otherwise she wouldn’t have authorised the book.

BertrandRussell Tue 29-Oct-19 14:19:56

Blimey! Had her Maj really endorsed this book? I wonder what she’s playing at?

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 29-Oct-19 14:39:35

That's a hilarious photo of HM! Doesn't look like a very recent one though.

WineOrGinOrBoth Tue 29-Oct-19 15:03:20

Thank you for the new thread Queen.

Love the photo you posted of HM Curly

Re K&W - I suspect it’s a bit like my dparents- my dad thinks he’s boss & but it’s my mum who really is.

There is a Greek saying - the man is the head of the household but the woman is the neck & she can turn that head any way she wants.

beanaseireann Tue 29-Oct-19 15:28:08

I love that Greek saying. smile
