I saw him on the Remeberance Sunday Cenotaph parade. All the other Royals got a mention with what military service they had completed. When Edward stepped up it was just "Prince Edward......"

Made me snigger.

Oh, and does anyone know where Harry was?

2 of them are the Jubilee medals, Gold and Silver, but forget what the third was.

Re HRH Prince Eddie, I recognised the Silver/Gold Jubilee gongs, but not the third (brassy) one he was wearing at the Festival of Remembrance. Could it have been some "acting" gong?

Also, I could be wrong, but I could swear that his tie was RM...

Well, don't forget that despite the manner in which he departed, Prince Edward was in the Royal Marines, albeit for a short period. He is right to be proud in his association with that fine organisation.

where did he get all those medals from, thought he was only in the booties for a couple of hours or so

I'm a traditionalist myself, one tradition used to be:

One son for the Army, one son for the Navy and one for the church.
(Cassocks and choir boys might be right up his street.)

Another worthy royal tradition involved red hot pokers up the hoop or swimming lessons in a vat of Malmesy!

Harry was on parade in Windsor on Sunday for what has to have been the best attended Remembrance Sunday I have seen in Windsor.

He was in Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry garb, he gets quite a lot of flak for being a bit of a royal walt. But when he came to visit us on exercise he seemed a pretty decent guy.

...... I got this one from Mummy for eating my greens, and this one for tidying my bedroom, and this one 'cause Mummy thought the other two looked lonely.
 
#17
If 'his mum' tells him to wear them then its good enough for me!
 
#18
Have met the Prince of mince and he is surprise surprise a decent bod who does try to please and take an interest in what he is visiting,being shown.
 
#19
At the end of the day, he tried a course that not everyone can pass, failed himself and left, but at least he tried.
 
#20
Brave to admit that he couldn't hack a course (that quite frankly many of us couldn't either) and then go and see his father.

Can you imagine that interview!
