What a great photo, thanks Celia.
Love that picture Celia. I wonder what she said to make those two crack up like that? She seems to have a mischievous side. We see it often in that lovely smile of hers.
A smiling Princess Beatrice appeared to be thoroughly enjoying motherhood as she took her three-week-old baby for a walk in London.
It is the first glimpse of the new mum since Sienna Elizabeth – the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild – was born.
The 33-year-old princess wore a casual outfit that included tracksuit bottoms and a quilted coat, as husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, took control of the pushchair during the walk with their friends last week.

Reminds me of another visit yesterday to a chemist for a pair of comfortable sneakers for me! But they didn't have my size so I have to wait while they order them in. Pink Sneakers in my case! Not sure what husband will think when I arrive home with them LOL.
Love the blue outfit.
I've been noticing that Princess Anne is never far from her side these days. Lovely to see.
Yes Leonie, I guess the Queens's ladies in weighting are getting on in age themselves to do that job of caring for her. But it must be nice to have ones caring daughter by her side.

London — British police have decided not to take any further action against Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth's second son, after reviewing evidence presented to a U.S. court by an American woman who claims the royal sexually assaulted her as a minor. Over the summer, London's Metropolitan Police looked at the evidence presented by Virginia Giuffre, who says she was forced to have sex with Andrew.
"This review has concluded and we are taking no further action," the police said in a statement.
I have thought Prince Charles is a wiser guy than a lot of people give him credit for over the years!
Prince Charles took part in a virtual round table discussion after he was told China wished to join his Sustainable Markets Initiative, and was applauded when he began by speaking in Mandarin.
"I have thought Prince Charles is a wiser guy than a lot of people give him credit for over the years!"
Me too, Celia.
He is not the only one!
I get annoyed also, it doesn't take much to have a bit of litter in ones car to take it home, the UK is a lot worse than Oz for being lazy; I am not even sure if Britain has a day each year to clean up their country? Does anyone know please?
Prince William’s son Prince George was “annoyed” when he learned about littering.
The 39-year-old royal has revealed he recently had to explain to his eldest son, eight, that some people drop their litter on the ground instead of putting it in the bin, and the news left the youngster fuming.
William said: "George at school recently has been doing litter picking, and I didn't realise but talking to him the other day he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused.
“[He was] a bit sort of annoyed by the fact they went out litter picking one day and then the very next day, they did the same route, same time and pretty much all the same litter they picked up was back again.
Not sure if the UK has a special day but they do have this amongst other campaigns.
I remember when I was at school, there was 2 bells at recess, 1 bell for picking up the rubbish in the playground and 1 bell to march in line to go into school. Our school was like being in the military , where we had Music (Colonel Bogey or The Dam Busters) to march in line into the classrooms. We loved it, and at the end of the School Term we had to take into class a tin of Shoe Polish (Brown) and polish those desks till they were sparkling clean. Even when the School Inspector came around, a few days before we had to polish those desks. Do they have School Inspectors anymore?
Never hear of any of that before!
Oh dear me!
'The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,' a family friend is said to have told Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl. 'It's not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she's having to give up one of very few pleasures.'

The monarch is rarely seen drinking in public but according to palace sources, just like her son Prince Charles, her alcoholic beverage of choice is often a dry martini.
The 95-year year-old is also believed to enjoy a glass of sweet wine with dinner, while her late cousin Margaret Rhodes once reported she was known to drink a glass of champagne before bed.
'The alcohol has gone, her doctors want to make sure she is as fit and healthy as possible,' a second source was quoted as saying by the magazine.
Dubonnet and gin - the Queen Mother's favourite tipple - is also believed to be a choice often requested by Her Majesty.
In February it was revealed that Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, the Queen's Northern Ireland residence, was launching its own variety of the gin, made using rose petals from the gardens and blended with apples and pears from the castle's Walled Garden.
The Northern Ireland residence, which is 20 minutes away from Belfast, teamed up with local distillery Rademon Estate, Northern Ireland's first craft gin distillery.

It comes after the official Buckingham Palace gin launched by the Royal Collection Trust in July 2020 sold out online within eight hours.
The Granville Rose Garden was created by Lady Rose Bowes-Lyon, the Queen Mother's eldest sister in the 1940s and 1950s, with the Queen and her sister Margaret enjoying the spectacular grounds when visiting their aunt and uncle as young princesses.
In November last year, the royal launched a new gin made with plants grown in her Sandringham estate.
The batch of Sandringham Celebration Gin is priced at £50 for a 50cl bottle and was made in a distillery on the estate in north Norfolk.
It was the third brand of gin to be marketed by the Royal family, cashing in on the popularity of the drink.
Prince Charles recently launched his own organic Highgrove gin just months after the Royal Collection Trust started selling a Buckingham Palace variety.
But the Sandringham gin is the one most closely linked to the Queen because the 20,000 acre estate is her private property.
Sad at her age ... good on her for enjoying a minimal daily tipple.
