The Tower is exactly where she should be considering what she has foisted on the British people (for fuller explanation see MO section)

Let's hope Mrs Q has instructed her to remain quiet and respectful instead of the ghastly guffawing and giggling of previous years.

The Royal Family turn out in force to pay their respects to the fallen with even Prince Philip coming out of retirement... but William and Harry choose to watch rugby instead

Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge cheered on England and Wales today as the Autumn internationals began. The Royals both dressed in suits and donned poppies as they supported their respective teams. Prince Harry and Rugby Football Union president John Spencer arrived together at the RFU match between England and Argentina at Twickenham Stadium this afternoon, while Prince William headed over to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. This evening, The Queen, Prince Philip and the Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Royal Albert Hall for the Festival of Remembrance.

Harry could have done both as both events were in London and his rugby game was an afternoon match but he has always gone to the rugby and not the Festival anyway.

William had to go to Cardiff for the rugby and couldn't make it back in time.

I have no problem with them going to the rugby as I believe that the fallen would have preferred the rugby to the festival anyway. There was acknowledgement of Remembrance Day at all the rugby matches played today - Scotland against Samoa, Wales against Australia, England against Argentina and France against New Zealand with wreaths being laid, last post - minute's silence - reveille etc before the anthems.

The Cenotaph service every year, commemorating the almost one million British and Empire war dead in World War One, is extremely moving and the Royal Family (many of whose male members have served in the Armed Forces), play a great part. It really stirs the emotions. Prince Philip, who served throughout WW2 looked very old and very frail today. I hope the cold wasn't too much for him or the Queen. No health crises this December, thanks.

Prince Harry breaks military rules while at Remembrance Day parade by having a beard

The 33-year-old retired from active service two years ago, but on Remembrance Sunday appeared with prominent ginger facial hair at the Cenotaph in London as a senior Blues and Royals officer

The Brits do Pomp better than anyone.  I often wonder if it’s because they appear so reserved and self-contained that big events like these allow for an outpouring of emotion, legitimately.  It’s certainly impressive.

Meanwhile, in DC, our VP and wife scrubbed the Vietnam Memorial clean.  So different but all beautiful things to show appreciation.

The mood isn't overly benevolent towards any of the Winds (imo), and I think the press is now piling on anything remotely negative they can.

The beard doesn't bother me at all and I'd expect a soldier to rather have a beard than not, as a beard protects from any kind of weather and shaving every day is too much of a bother when so much more important stuff happens (during deployment I mean).

The beard rule is likely a throwback to other times, when a man who took care of himself absolutely had to shave. That's my guess.

Between the 1860s and 1915 it was a requirement for British army officers to wear moustaches. Beards were frowned on (although they were and are worn in the Royal Navy.) After World War One moustaches were optional. However, under certain conditions men serving in the British army in India or the Middle East were allowed beards, as beards and moustaches were regarded as signs of authority and power in those regions.

Apparently it was extremely common still for British army officers serving in Afghanistan in the years when Harry was in the Army to wear beards and it was accepted.

They needed a space filler and a non-story about the beard was all they could come up with.

^Nothing quite as disgusting as Stolen Valor. 

It’s much more wrong than Harry’s beard which I happen to dislike but that’s the least of things that annoy me about him right now.
