The Queen brings Andrew back to the royal barn

Is the royal power to summon in a jiffy? One feels certain there is a very specific memory of Prince Andrew actually being expelled from the royal family just a few months ago.

Why, yes, on January 13, as we reported, the queen herself He issued a statement saying the Duke would not undertake any “public duties” and was defending himself against Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s allegations of sexual assault as a “private citizen”.

He also briefed the palace on the background that he would no longer use the title of His Royal Highness. A few weeks later, it was announced that Andrew was settling down with the accused, and he reportedly used large amounts of his mother’s money to do so. The reason widely given by palace officials at the time was that this was done so that Andrew’s legal problems would not overshadow the queen’s jubilee.

So why is it said that the Duke of Infamy will now attend one of the most ceremonial matches in the royal calendar, Garter Day, as His Royal Highness? telegraph Reports said Andrew will attend the Rabat Medal ceremony on June 13, along with the Queen, senior members of the royal family and former prime ministers.

The palace is trying to push forward this strange decision based on the fact that Andrew was “personally” appointed by the Queen to the Order of the Lace. It seems more and more that the Queen has no intention of completely expelling her favorite son from royal life.

As long as she’s breathing, Andrew clearly has a foot in the door.

This raises the question of why he helped pay compensation to Giuffre. Could it be that instead of making all of Andrew’s thoughts go away, the Queen wanted to settle the case to actually enable Andrew to join in on the important moments in the festivities?

Was letting him walk her on the arm to her seat at the Prince Philip memorial in March actually been a nice exercise to reintegrate Andrew into royal life during the jubilee period, when criticism of the Queen is naturally silenced?

This theory will gain ground only if, like telegraph Reporting, Andrew will be referred to in the next day’s court notice as His Royal Highness. It seems that there is no reason not to believe telegraph Which seems to have such a solid mass on a good salad. A palace source told the newspaper that this would be “normal practice”.

Newsflash: There’s nothing normative about forcing Prince Andrew to settle sex-crime charges for millions of dollars.

The Ribat Medal is Britain’s highest equestrian decoration. It has only 24 members at a time. Your invitation to join is the final sign of respect for the institution.

The Sunday times Reports suggest the Queen will not appoint a new Royal Colonel of the Grenadier Guard before Trooping the Color on June 2, to report Prince Andrew’s embarrassment. Andrew was stripped of his military titles following a settlement with Giuffre.

It is hard not to come to the conclusion that the Queen wants to save what she can from his position before she dies.

The Queen will not take the “Royal Salute” in the color ensemble

Prince Charles, Prince William, and Princess Anne reportedly took a “royal salute” at Trooping the Color – with Queen Elizabeth not doing so for the first time in 70 years, Sunday times reports.

Although in recent days the Queen has been seen outside looking bright and cheerful at the Royal Windsor Horse Show and visiting Elizabeth’s new London Underground line, and will be present for a while during Trooping the Color, “it is adjusted with her convenience in mind,” she stated. newspaper.

The Queen may travel in a carriage from Buckingham Palace to briefly inspect the troops, before retiring for the rest of the ceremony, Sunday times Before appearing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with other members of the family. The alternative is that the Queen just appears on the balcony. It all depends on the “occasional mobility issues” the palace said the Queen has.

Meanwhile, two sections of the stands collapsed on Saturday during a formal rehearsal for “The Troops”. Five people were treated at the scene and three were taken to hospital. An eyewitness said Mirror: “We were asked to stand up and we heard screaming and then there was chaos in the department. It turned out that part of it had collapsed and a woman had fallen. Paramedics rushed inside but started screaming, ‘We can’t find her.'”

“She was taken out after several minutes and appeared to be fine but was shaken badly, put on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance. The crowd was calm but was later removed from that section. Then the second section had a similar collapse and the crowd moved but no one fell.”

What Prince Charles says in response is unknown, but fans advise him to treat the Queen’s bust with caution.

Reflections on the Coronation of Sir Norman Hartnell

A fascinating excerpt from the diary of the late Sir Norman Hartnell, the fashion designer who dressed the Queen at her wedding and coronation, appears today daily Mail. Hartnell, who died in 1979, sketched nine designs, writing: “I thought of lilies, roses, margaritas, and golden corns. I thought of altar cloths and sacred vestments. I thought of heaven, earth, sun, moon, stars and every celestial thing that could be embroidered on a garment destined for him.” to be historical.

But in the end, the dress had a less transcendent idea: a leek. Hartnell believed he could use daffodils to symbolize Wales, and was appalled when Garter King of Arms, in charge of heraldry, told him, “Daffodils! I will in no way give you a daffodil. I’ll give you the proper emblem of Wales, the leek.”

Hartnell writes, “I complained that I would dress a beautiful young woman with vegetables if I had to embroider the dress on the dress. Nevertheless, Garter stood firm and the decision was final: the shallots.”

It became, in the end, not so much a dress as a diplomatic conspiracy. I agreed that the shallot was one of the most admired vegetables, of historical importance and no doubt in its health properties, but seldom of fame for its beauty. Could he not allow me to use the slender daffodil in place of So?

“No, Hartnell. You must have the leeks,” said Garter obstinately.

Hartnell learned a love of leeks and wrote that in the end, he “was able to turn an earthy leek into a vision of the magic of Cinderella, worthy to mingle with her sisters, the rose and the mimosa, in a gleaming royal gathering—and fitting to adorn the Queen’s gown.”
