It may have been addressed already, being married in his uniform, did Harry comply with uniform standards with that scruff on his face?

wish them both the best.

I loved the wedding. I didn't see any of it as I was walking the North Norfolk Coast path. Lovely day and very few people about. Maybe they could hold them more often.

Quite a low hurdle, that one.
I'm just surprised that there are people who have expectations at all.

Harry's promotion of the Invictus Games is laudable.
His service in Afghanistan is what I would expect of any conscientious citizen. No special kudos for the silver spoon between the teeth.

William? Who's William?

HM the Queen gave permission for Prince Henry to wear his uniform (or a fancy version of it) as he was no longer a serving officer and also allowed the face fuzz.
The page boys (Prince George and his pal) wore miniature replicas of the same fancy dress.

For the cognoscenti of these things, the blue clad derrière in G-CPTN's post belongs to
one Jessica Mulroney, best pal of the bride.
Somebody was bound to ask.

That's very kind of you to say, I feel a little tinge of emotion in fact.
Actually apart from about 1 hr getting provisions on arrival we went nowhere near thereafter. Stayed at Clarach bay in a terribly common caravan, relatively few people there but stunning views of Cardigan Bay from Bardsey Island to Strumble..

Ynyslas National Nature Reserve, Borth, Ceredigion, Wales


Then there was this place where I met a kindred spirit, a lovely lady who explained how much of the development had been funded by, ready for this ?..that damned EU !.....not surprisingly she was as pro EU as I am. Glorious views up the Dovey estuary. No journey would be complete without a couple of encounters and modern yoof duly obliged on the descent into Aberystwyth where 60 was far too slow for them but pride of place goes to a BMW driver, straight from the JB School of driving in fact. who got terribly agitated at the oik doing 40 and, with about 200 yds to go at Penmaenpool to turn off for the toll bridge, gave it some boot and then slammed on the brakes before occupying both sides of the junction as he made the tight left turn.

Missed most of the hype and fawning but the bits I did see showed the Beeb had pulled out every form of sycophancy known to the media in their coverage of the first ever couple in the world to get married.. . Plus another Beeb moment when a reporter commented about what it must be like to be woken at 7 am with a camera in front of your face after a freezing night sleeping on the street ( try asking the poor sods who are homeless and not those who are just daft enough to do so for such events ) and a clip showing the Army painting lacquer on the horses hoofs .......now there's bolleaux and BS combined in one priceless clip !

Actually, given those involved, it appeared to be a far more contemporary event than the usual overblown pomp and ceremony so adored by many on here, and it was amusing to read the comments about wot Harry was wearing form those more fervent military obsessed posters. It was nice to see the guest list included people who actually help others in society across the world and not the usual poserati preening themselves and their vanity.

Anyway, for those who missed it, the event will doubtless exceed " The Great Escape " or "The Shawshank Redemption " as standard Christmas repeat fodder.

Usual misery K & C but just as an aside to further your knowledge of equine grooming.
It is common practice to oil horses hooves to prevent cracking and promote foot health... this is not just for special occasions although it does smarten the animals appearance.
The product is called hoof oil, usually containing
linseed oil amongst other things no lacquer involved.

According to something on the news last night (which seemed to be wholly about the wedding, as if nothing else had happened yesterday) the Queen granted special permission for him to keep the beard whilst in uniform. IIRC, this is vaguely similar to RN personnel, who I think have to ask for permission to grow a beard.

Sir John Major was there. Not such why that exception. Not inviting any meant there would be no favouritism or individual snubs. The Presidents of the USA being a point. No other names

Thousands of good people thoroughly enjoyed themselves yesterday. Far more pleasant to see and hear than to read what a few sad souls write on here. Some people will never be happy in their skins

He was there as a member of the Order of the Garter, I believe, not because he was a former PM, he's the only former PM listed as being a member.

In the Andrew you 'slap in to grow' or in common speech put in a request form asking 'to discontinue shaving'. After about 30 days said growth is inspected and if it makes the grade all is fine. If not then you are told to 'shave off'.

William? Who's William?
A guy who didn't ask to be born a future King but who nonetheless, became a helicopter pilot with the RAF in operational search & rescue, gaining a command seat. He then went on to become a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service donating his £40,000 salary to charity. He did all this while also carrying out duties required of him by law as a member of the royal family. He is also, along with his brother, an example of someone who uses his status to better less fortunate people's lives as best he can given the restrictions placed upon him.
That's who William is.

Following the death of Princess Diana in 1997, former Tory Prime Minister John Major was appointed special guardian to Princes Harry and William, responsible for legal and administrative matters.

The 75-year-old has watched over the Princes ever since.
