Just to check, are Beatrice and Helena with Louise in the wedding photo?

Edward bald would just be...bad for lack of a better word. It certainly suits some men, but I don't think Edward is one of them.

How interesting! How did the mother know Queen Mary?

It's not you... I wouldn't be surprised if they did!

I'm sure Queen Mary would have seen it as a protective measure for the monarchy.

I must agree with Grace, the coronation ceremony is here to stay. The coronation is indeed a rare event that involves the efforts of so many, it is an opportunity for national unity. People look forward to the display of pomp and ceremony. It's true in certain countries such as Norway the ceremony is radically simpler but the customs are different in those cases. Charles perhaps would want a simpler ceremony, I have read that he also wants a multi-faith service. Anyone's thoughts on that? And most importantly... God Save The Queen!

First off bravo for the topic suggestion, what stimulating discussion! Many previous posts have simply taken the words out of my mouth! I have mixed views, on one hand I would like to believe the marriage would have been strong etc. However, I also lean towards the idea that the marriage would still exist if for appearances only. Of course, there were so many factors it is rather difficult to tell what would have been.

She would be a good choice! Would anyone be opposed to an American actress portraying the Duchess?

I just checked IMDB and noticed that Miranda Richardson is to play the Duchess of Kent!  :D
