    I'm sure The Queen gets a good laugh out of the decoy hats and trying to beat the wagers.

    Cheers, G

    Had a google and she has a penchant for side tiaras which I hadn't seen before.
    Hoping these pics might tempt our KE back in!

    Charlene, Princess of Monaco has such a clean, fresh tailored look.

    I think Sophie Wessex would also look great in these sorts of tiaras and clothes

    It's an Ascot tradition to bet on the colour of the Queen's hat each day. I like to think that she chooses at least one hat each year that will really stump people.

    I think the point human is trying to make is that William and Kate have had their disputes with the press, at least as recently as 2017 over photos of George. They have stood up to them (with a lawsuit) and set firm boundaries. Now there seems to be mutual respect.

    So Harry and Meghan are also setting boundaries, following in William and Kate’s footsteps, including filing a lawsuit. They have a right to pick their battles, even if we don’t agree with them. Revealing Meghan’s letter to her father is just as hurtful as Kate being photographed topless IMO. We may not have seen inappropriate photos, but that doesn’t mean that paparazzi haven’t been lurking and intruding and making their life unpleasant. Hopefully, as with William and Kate, taking a stand will create a boundary that everyone can respect.

    This article is dated 10/22 and contains the statement we’ve discussed:
    The source added that the institution around the British royal family is full of people afraid of and inexperienced at how to best help harness and deploy the value of the royal couple who, they said, have single-handedly modernized the monarchy.

    I take everything with a large shaker of salt!

    Oh I think the lawsuit over the letter is totally justified, absolutely.

    Every member of the BRF has had issues with the press, big time.

    The tabloid press became giant business during the 80’s...

    The Archbishop who married H&M is sticking up for them and he said they are entitled to a break from all of this. That’s very nice and supportive of him.

    Lilibet, your point about lurking and intrusion is right on. Just the feeling as though one is being watched is horrible.

    Buckingham Palace is a fortress. Frogmore, maybe not so much?

    We’ve certainly covered all the PR angles. I still hope they’ll get a better team that can help them navigate through what is really a train wreck of publicity, lately.

    The funny thing is, we really don’t know who is handling their PR. A California firm was mentioned, but who knows if it’s true? The papers are very careful never to give the name of the person they’re quoting...it’s always “sources”, “insiders,” etc. For all we know it’s the kitchen help!

    Admittedly, the lawsuit letter and the documentary revelations from their own mouths didn’t come across well (and the video was edited don’t forget), but at least we know the source. I’m not going to believe anything unless it’s a named source. Even Meghan’s “friends” who spoke up awhile back could actually be “frenemies” for all we know...but Meghan gets blamed for what they said. Same thing with “clearing the stands” at Wimbledon. Who knows if the article by Katie Something yesterday about Meghan seeking publicity several years ago is true or embellished? We are forming opinions based on what may (or may not) be lies or half truths twisted to look bad. Are we being manipulated? Food for thought IMO.

    “The Queen had only one request for her appearance with James Bond at the opening of the 2012 London Olympics – that she could deliver the line: 'Good evening, Mr Bond.'

    Her dressmaker and confidante Angela Kelly reveals in a new book it took 'just five minutes' to persuade Her Majesty to agree to director Danny Boyle's request for her to appear alongside Daniel Craig in the famous footage of her appearing to parachute into the Olympic Stadium.

    Mrs Kelly, the Queen's dresser of 25 years, tells how she was called to a meeting with Boyle and private secretary Edward Young to discuss the idea in 2011.”

    The royal christening gown worn by Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis was dyed in Yorkshire Tea, Angela Kelly reveals in her latest book.

    She tells of the unusual lengths she went to as she tried to ensure that the silk and lace garment – a replica of the royal christening gown commissioned by Queen Victoria for her eldest daughter in 1841 – was just the right colour.

    She had to first travel to Italy to find the lace before returning to England to make the garment. She said: ‘To make sure it looked authentic we dyed it in Yorkshire Tea (the strongest, as we all know).

    “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly considering relocating to the United States for much of the year.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be considering a move to California.

    The potential US move would give the couple a "second base" on the other side of the Atlantic.

    Meghan was born in LA in California and her mum Doria Ragland still lives in the state.

    A royal source told The Sun : "There’s an acceptance that things haven’t worked out with the Sussexes full-time in Windsor so they could have a second base in America.”

    It will be a shame if this does happen but they must do whatever makes them happy. I don’t know how it would work when Archie starts school. The Duchess must feel homesick and miss her Mum. I dread to think about the price of the home they will need in California that provides the security and privacy they will need.

    From the article:
    “A spokesman for the Sussexes did not comment on the claims when approached by The Sun.”

    So clearly “a Royal source” is not speaking on behalf of the Sussexes or the spokesman for the Sussexes would have commented.

    That doesn’t mean the story isn’t true, but it’s not an official story, so for all we know it’s false. Just keeping it real. :D

    when was the last time she lived in California?

    I find it hard to believe she would choose to live where there are fires, earthquakes and random shootings.

    little Archie would never have the freedom that he has in England.

    If she misses her mother, mom can come and visit. There are lots of fun things to do in England.

    Remember the stories of how mom was going to be a nanny to Archie? The rumors fly wild.

    There is a lot of interesting information in here. It seems like she did not live in California for a long time. She went to Northwestern which is by Chicago. It is a very selective school.

    She has been involved in humanitarian work for quite awhile.

    I think it would be rather difficult to do all of their work from the US. They have their staff for their various activities.
