Blue skies and sunshine, but a bit of a cool breeze

Another garden party







They've been busy these last few days. I like the pink on Kate.

Glad to see them working again and attending a garden party, which they don't do often enough.

As for the outfit? I like the earrings. The rest looks like Kate's cosplaying 'Sophie Winklemann at Trooping the Colour'. That's looks like a pink version of her Trooping hat:

The normal practice is for each royal to attend one garden party per year with The Queen attending all of them. The Queen didn't attend last week's one which was therefore hosted by Charles and Camilla.

I doubt that Harry and Meghan will attend one this year, due to Archie, although Harry may make one of the later ones along with the Gloucesters and Kents as the Wessexes and Andrew were also at this one and Anne was at last week's.

Every time I see Andy in profile, in light like this, and especially the older he gets, there is no doubt Philip is his father (and Andrew of Greece his grandfather) despite the decades' long rumor. The eyes, the nose, the overall profile. Pure Glucksburg.

Like with Hapless Harry, the rumors really just need to die.

I agree.

Philip is also too much an Alpha male to allow his father's name to be given to a son who wasn't his. He was upset when the children weren't going to be allowed to have Mountbatten as their surnames and that was a name he used for only a few months which gives an idea of his attitude to his family. No way was Andrew going to have Andrew as a name if said baby Andrew wasn't also Andrew of Greece's grandson.

Harry also has too much of Philip and Andrew of Greece in him to not be a descendant of said Andrew of Greece. I always remember the photo of Harry aged about 3 alongside Andrew of Greece at about the same age and they are the spitting image of each other.

Those rumours were well are nasty. I simply can't imagine the Queen having a) an affair, b) the opportunity to an affair and/or c) Philipp swallowing this.

Yesterday the Queen enjoyed the company of a really special VIP – that’s Very Important Pooch – when Max the spaniel joined her for a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

It’s unusual for a pet to be allowed through the palace gates, but then Max isn’t your average dog.

He even met the Duchess of Cambridge, who immediately bent down, despite her pink Alexander McQueen suit, to stroke his tummy.

Max’s owner, Kerry Irving, 54, from Keswick in Cumbria, overcame acute depression after a serious car accident to become a respected mental health campaigner.

He says his 11-year-old English springer spaniel saved his life.

In 2006, Mr Irving’s car was hit by a truck, leaving him with severe spinal injuries. Once active and outdoor-loving, he became virtually house-bound and suffered acute panic attacks.

On his rare forays outside the house, he would see Max, who belonged to a neighbour, and eventually asked if he could take him for a walk.

‘There was something very special about him,’ he recalled and began pushing himself further and further each day.

‘Max gave me a reason to get up in the morning and something else to focus on, other than the pain.’

When the dog’s owner mentioned that they wanted to re-home him four years ago, Mr Irving jumped at the chance.

‘He simply hasn’t left my side since,’ he said.

‘Max saved my life and I can never repay him for that.’

Joined by another spaniel, Paddy, Mr Irving began logging their adventures in the Cumbrian countryside, with the help of his wife, Angela. Now more than 81,000 people, as far afield as Japan and Brazil, follow their Facebook site called Max Out In The Lake District.

Max now works as a registered therapy dog, fundraising for charity and has received a PDSA commendation for his work.

So when Mr Irving was invited to Buckingham Palace to join the Queen for tea and sandwiches, alongside other community champions, it was clear that a special someone was missing.

Fortunately the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria, the Queen’s official representative in the region, obtained permission for him to go as his ‘plus one’ assistance dog, along with Angela, of course.

Max took the whole day in his stride – even when he got a tummy rub from Kate.

They were introduced to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge because of the royals’ interest in mental health. ‘Was it the fact that he wanted to go for a walk that made you want to as well?’ asked William.

Kate also chatted with Mr Irving about her brother, James Middleton, who this year wrote movingly in the Daily Mail about how his own dogs had helped him through a crippling bout of depression.

‘It makes such a difference, doesn’t it, the exercise and being outdoors,’ she remarked. ‘The connection dog lovers have with their animals is remarkable. It’s very therapeutic.’

William was so taken with Max, who he described as ‘remarkably relaxed’, that he even urged Mr Irving to let his companion enjoy a swim in the palace lake. ‘He’s allowed to go for a swim, definitely,’ he said, ‘just don’t chase the ducks!

‘It was so lovely to meet you. Enjoy your day.’

The experience so moved Mr Irving that he was in tears afterwards. ‘What a great guy, what a great guy,’ he said.

‘I think you can instinctively tell when someone has suffered the same issues as you. There is a connection,’ he added.

As for Max, he just lapped up the attention as well as a sneaky, and very posh, sandwich.

While I love this story, the cats in the Lesbaru are rather riled up over it. It will be fine as long as we don’t turn our backs or sleep for a few days.

Poor babies. Salmon and fresh catnip all around!  Smiley

That is a lovely, heartwarming story, both for Kerry Irving and Max. I have to give a shout out to William for saying Max could go for a swim, and for his impression on Mr. Irving.  Thumb up

I like what Kate wears - classic Kate uniform and really nothing to get super excited about, but still - she cleans up nicely, I think. However, I'm over the suede heels.
