I think the lack of tiara is the nod to the future - with a reduction even further from the current four tiara events per year to maybe only the State Opening of Parliament.

Bite your tongue! I am old enough to remember the royals wearing tiaras to the ballet and movie openings.

So am I and I am glad they no longer show their wealth in such a way. More and more people don't want to see the ostentatious displays of wealth and are happy to see them wearing more 'normal' garb most of the time and Catherine is intelligent enough to understand that - especially in her generation. People used to get dressed up for all sorts of occasions but now they don't and Catherine is fitting in with that concept.

I get what you're saying luvcharles and believe me I'm not trying to argue, but on the other hand, people do get hungry for a little bling and glamour particularly in these sad times. Kate's photos in the gold "Bond" dress & the admiration she got is proof of that.  So I hope that Kate will remember to wear some diamonds on occasion, when it comes to be her time in the sun.

I don't think everyone would have hated seeing Kate with her hair up and wearing the Lotus or the Halo Scroll in the "Winterhalter" portrait, except perhaps a few rotten eggs.  I personally would have adored it, but then I like to see Royalties in all their bejeweled glory.  A birthday portrait should be an occasion for a little sparkle.

But as you rightly say these photos are aimed at a different, perhaps less tolerant and less susceptible, audience.

reminds me of that scrit I read years ago.

I am old. I remember when General's had aids; clapping meant, you enjoyed the performance and; gay meant you were happy.

One does not clap at the end of a well enjoyed performance anymore? No doubt this would be the moment Juliet would say "Oh, Mom"....though I am often  accorded Best Mom from her in public, so no complains about it!

Me too! I usually quite relieved when no eye-rolling was involved.

I’ve read this multiple places. Interesting. I had assumed it would be Anne or William. Would she have to dress up in uniform? I’ve never been a particular fan of ‘honorary’ military roles (the dress up and medals) but it’s not my business and I don’t know enough about it. It seems an odd choice to me but I guess we’ll see who they pick.

The Grenadier Guards want the Duchess of Cambridge to replace the Duke of York as their colonel.
Senior officials in the regiment have said they want Kate, 40, to be the second appointed female colonel in its 366-year history.
The Queen, 95, has taken the role again by default after she stripped Prince Andrew of all his military titles this month over allegations that he sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre, which he denies.

Hear hear!

I think Kate's position as future PoW, Queen Consort and eventually Queen Mum justifies her having the role. I also like that they asked for her specifically. I don't have a problem with military honorifics for members of royal families, as long as the regiment is in agreement.

I think we will see more and more of this as people are looking to the future. I know Charles and Camilla are next in line but William and Kate seem to be the ones being groomed. They will have a longer rule than Charles bu default.

Good for Kate!

This is a sweet comment and if they truly want her then good for her!

“The appointment is decided by the regiment and the Queen. A senior source in the Grenadier Guards said: “From straw polling through the ranks, they would all love it to be Kate. We all admire the way she has fitted in and behaved, she never seems to put a foot wrong. Everything she has taken on she really commits to, and we want someone who will really engage with us.”

If memory serves QEQM held dozens of honorary appointments but never wore a uniform so Kate could certainly take that approach. 

I believe the plan is for The Queen to hold all the positions the two dumpster fires “returned” and that only after her death will new appointments be made.
