Magnificent is the only word to describe it. For a few moments you just feel so proud to be British. So proud that you were born here - a subject for a Queen.

The daughter of Prince Andrew or Princess Anne is my guess. Zara Philips? I'm not a royal watcher, so I don't really know

It looks rather like the marvellous Princess Eugenie - daughter of The Duke of York.

Does anyone have a recording of this event either on DVD or video tape? I have a request for this from a West Indian friend now in the USA.
