Sophie gave a group of WWII era conscripts back their dignity today...
Telegraph ~ Countess of Wessex's tears for Bevin Boys
There's video w/that, but I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. I have seen this one though...
YouTube ~ Bevin Boys memorial unveiled
...and had tears streaming down my cheeks after listening to the Gentleman who was a Bevin Boy. I can't even imagine what today means to those surviving Men.
I also can't wait to see Sophie's new necklace and soon too I hope.
Prince Harry is in Washington D.C. today and will be in NYC, New Jersey, and Connecticut later on in the week. The King and Queen of Sweden are also in NYC with Princess Madeleine and her fiancee and will be going to D.C. in the next few days on official business. And the Crown Prince and Princess of Norway were in Texas and California this past week. Apparently the European royals decided to all come visit at the same time.
Denmark? Spain? Luxembourg? Netherlands? Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon? Niagara Falls? DisneyWorld? We can accommodate you!
Hey!! You guys share Niagara Falls w/us up here, so you'd have to share the visit in that case.
Did anyone see the video of Harry w/the kids at the Tea Party at the White House? He is so wonderful w/kids. I wonder who he got that from...?
Hello ~ Prince Harry's first stop on USA tour promotes cause close to his mother's heart
This has Michelle Obama's Welcome to the White House and "Surprise!!" to the Military Families attending the Tea Party who didn't know Harry was going to be there until he came out as the video w/this article....

i'd cut a bitch for kate's coat
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
Not big on her hat, but I think Camilla's outfit is actually nicer than Kate's. Love the return of the coat dress!
The Queen's hat is cool though - very Mad Hatter
Camilla's outfit is "age/station appropriate", as is Catherine's.
I love the youthful vibe, that doesn't scream "maternity" dressing.
I can't believe no one has posted anything about this before now....
Sweden won the World Hockey Championships on Home Ice last weekend. Monday, they were received by the Royal Family at the Palace, but a certain little toddler stole the show.
Mommy, let go of my hand so I can check out that thing over there!!!
Aftonbladet ~ Hockey ~ World Champions Meet Estelle and Royal Family
No idea if that's what the headline really says, but it's what's happening in the pictures. There are more than the one there, just click the Play button to see them all.
She is one adorable lil munckin!!! I'm starting to see a bit of Victoria in her face now Estelle's a wee bit older. She still favours Daniel big time, but I'm starting to see a bit of Victoria there too. Regardless, Estelle's one very happy little girl and that's the important thing.
They said that she "stole the show" by playing with the trophy.
I'm sure the team will never forget their visit!
There are a number of events happening this week to commemorate the Queen's 60th anniversary of her coronation. There will be a service of thanksgiving on Tuesday 4th June at Westminster Abbey as well as lots of TV specials but the real excitement is that BBC Parliament are broadcasting a digitally remastered version of the coronation in FULL this coming Sunday from 10.15am - 5.20pm, corresponding with the exact times of the original broadcast 60 years ago!!! I have a DVD of the official film (Laurence Olivier narration) and documentaries galore on DVD but to actually see the whole thing pan out like it was happening for real is something that all of us under 60+ have never experienced. I'm really looking forward to experiencing what my parents and grandparents always recalled as a very special day that they would never forget.
I have no idea if BBC parliament is even available on the net in the UK let alone outside but hopefully something will pop up after the fact.
Thanks so much for sharing the information, floskate!
I hope that the remastered coverage of the Coronation can be captured; or made available on DVD.
What a glorious thing to have such a historic record of the event.
No one could have imagined all which has occurred in the 60 years since that day.

Bringing Up Baby: Royal Edition
The role of Prince William and Kate's new child, how he or she will be raised and what can be expected to happen once the baby is born.
It will be interesting to see if anything discussed bears any resemblance to what actually occurs.
My PBS station (Buffalo/Toronto) is airing "A Queen is Crowned" on Sunday at 9pm
It's not fair that Kate is 7+ months pregnant and look like that. :p Of course maybe having such a miserable start to her pregnancy means she deserves to look fabulous, but yeah.
