Okay, to be honest, this is actually more of a "spot everyone we haven't mentioned" post than one specifically about Sylvana St. Andrews (who is the woman in the fairly basic black-and-white hat between Flora and Eugenie) or Serena Linley (in the white pillbox on the right, who looked all day like she vaguely wanted to be watching something on television instead). Because we've also got Rose Gilman's floating blue feathers on the extreme right, as well as the hunky Gloucester sons-in-law (George behind Serena, Gary talking to Helen Taylor).
Sigh. Anybody want to help me start a petition to have risers put on the balcony for family occasions? At least tomorrow, St. George's has those lovely picture-taking stairs. See you then for more Windsor millinery merriment!

I have to say, the wonderful royal photographers in London have heard our repeated cries and provided us with far better close-up photos of minor royals this year, save three: Katharine Kent and one of her daughters-in-law, the Countess of St. Andrews, and (I think) one of the Countess's daughters -- I believe it's the teenaged royal I tentatively identified last year as Lady Marina-Charlotte Windsor.
You can just barely see (the alleged) Marina-Charlotte and Kate Kent in front of the column on the right, just to the right of the Waleses and Lady Helen Taylor. Marina appears to have some sort of white feather fascinator on, and Lady Kent is wearing a blue beret of some sort.
Word on the street is that the Countess of St. Andrews is the first woman to the right of Katharine, wearing the large hat with what appears to be dark-colored flowers. Really too bad on this one: it would be Sylvana's first appearance on the blog, and we need to talk all about her and her fascinating career as a professor of history at Cambridge sometime!
(So, if anyone comes up with any clearer photos of these three -- or of Lady Nicholas Windsor, who was supposedly also present -- please let us all know!)
