Did Prince Philip let one rip on the Buck House balcony

He looks like he is enjoying the taste, unlike Harry!

It will probably never be known whether someone cracked a joke or indiscreetly emitted a rather rude noise.

But the result on the Buckingham Palace balcony was undoubtedly one of general hilarity - to all but the Queen.

As all eyes focused on Prince Philip as the source, Her Majesty was not amused.

While she gamely tried to maintain her legendary poise and dignity, Philip, the Princess Royal and Princes Charles and Harry fought a losing battle to stifle their mirth.

Sideways glances and suppressed grins slowly gave way to open laughter. Harry even had to cover his face and duck out of view to hide his uncontrolled guffaws.

The Queen, however, adopted a stolid expression and flicked her eyes to her left in a look of reproach.

Perhaps the icy stare did the trick, for her giggling family soon regained their composure to watch a huge crowd applaud the Monarch's official 80th birthday.

Milestone anniversary

Earlier, thousands lined The Mall in the sweltering heat to watch the traditional Trooping the Colour, made even more special this year because of the Queen's milestone anniversary.

The Monarch left Buckingham Palace in Queen Victoria's 1842 ivory carriage, seated next to Philip in his red tunic and bearskin hat as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

The crowds applauded as the Queen made her way from the Palace to Horse Guards Parade. Behind her, on horseback, were Charles, who is Colonel of the Welsh Guards, and Anne, Colonel of the Blues and Royals.

The Queen was accompanied by a Sovereign's Escort of the Household Cavalry, made up of Life Guards and Blues and Royals.

Ahead of her was her 21-year-old grandson Harry -now Cornet Wales of the Blues and Royals and in military dress at the parade for the first time - with Prince Andrew and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Last year, Harry missed out on the event as he was at Sandhurst. This time it was the turn of his brother William.

The 23-year-old is following in Harry's footsteps at the military academy. The Duchess of Cornwall, whose father's funeral was on Friday, was also missing.

Yup, Judging by the boy's expression Grandad let one go. Even the band heard it.

Could have waited for the flypast to cover the noise.

BTW -

Some years back, Soveriegns Parade rehearsal at Sandhurst.

The Adjutant is sat on his horse out the front and the horse lets rip a mighty fart that echoed across Old College Square and a noxious cloud drifted over the officer cadets. An African cadet fainted.

The Adjutant stands up in his saddle, turns around to the company behind and says "Sorry about that".

A CSGT slams his feet in and quick as flash comes back;
"That's quite alright, Sir, we thought it was the horse."

Well, as a Grenadier he is surely entitled to loose the last round of the Feu de Joie - hope he was using blanks.

Talking of the FdJ - the commentator said that HM had never been present for one before, but wasn't there one at the RHA200, fired on a couple of dozen field guns?. Can any gun bunnies confirm?. God those rehearsals were exciting.
