    No, it isn't. It's December 30th.

    :rofl: that in the 21st century anyone would be called Mrs. Peter Phillips.

    Well, I think it's now obvious the vicious bug I've been battling since Boxing Day has affected my brain cells. ;) :D

    Thanks for the correction!!

    Hehehe... It's Princess Anne's way. She's quite famous for recycling nearly 30-year old dresses. She wore the same dress to a wedding in the past year or two (I want to say Freddy Windsor's wedding but I'm not positive) that she wore to Charles & Diana's wedding back in 1981. So, why not keep the same hairstyle? I suspect that I'd quite like Princess Anne if I knew her personally.

    Poor Anne - not too many real people have to worry that someone will recognize a dress they once wore almost 30 years earlier. Good on her for her waste-not-want-not attitude.

    I assume it is their way of assuring that everyone knows exactly who it is in relation to the Queen. More people probably recognize Peter Phillips as her grandson than his wife's name, since they do not have titles and are not in the news every fourteen seconds like their cousins.
