The Royal wedding
At some expense, Anne has bought a thick special issue of a women's magazine entirely devoted to colour pictures and information about the recent wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Spending time with an old Monarchist like me clearly has a corrupting influence! I entirely approve, of course. Courtesy of London's Daily Mail, I keep myself well-informed about the Royal family.
Anne liked Camilla's hat. And if you don't know who Camilla is you are just not with it at all, at all.
I myself thought that the best outfit of the occasion was the dress uniform of the Blues and Royals worn by Prince Harry.
(Prince Harry wore the Blues and Royals officer’s uniform in Dismounted Review Order, with a Forage Cap. He also chose not to wear a sword though the uniform did have sword slings)
The dress uniforms of the British military are in general rather splendid -- in keeping with the record of success of British arms.
And the Royal family are a military family so have every right to wear British military uniforms -- which they frequently do on formal occasions.
