Afternoon Whistle Watchers. Three future Kings, two suits, a long lemon flumping dress, and an alert Queen on a chair. Its an historic moment, so stick The Ants on from below- and add to the palpable drama. The Queen is wrapped up warm in azure outer-wear indoors in solidarity with other UK pensioners -perhaps the sitting room is open to the elements down the other end. The men look ever so relaxed, no? Two of my tailors are involved in the Christening garb. Charles' reverse-lip-tighten face and William with his first born in a flowing opera dress made for a 9 year old. Wild? Expect G was livid.  It's still a non-tense scene in the waiting room to the throne, right? I wonder if one collects a numbered ticket on arrival like one does down Homerton Accident&Emergency.

I'm waiting for my Nan.

William is in Spencer Hart, a positive update for young royalty, but he's flopped with wedding toned/fabricated tie, and white wedding napkin croissant deployed as a pocket square. Totes flopped. Who's to blame? Must be a mexican stand off betwix W, His Batman, and his Wifey. Just goes to show everything matters. Default on anything serious and flop. Been thinking, its only a small band of ties (in the world) that function as acceptable- about 6 or 7% are all that one could consider stylish- a narrow frame of stylistic activity- while the rest are quite, quite pony- and form the pool where all politicans/business men/men seem to fish. Also some royals. Back with W's whistle, the narrow lapels were said to be close to a 'dealbreaker'. Wonder who would be calling the shots from the Mexican three?

Meanwhile,  consummate Style Monger Charles is looking good. Off-white shirt, cant get in close enough, but tie and Royal Croissant all simmering away harmoniously with smashing mid blue Anderson&Sheppard DB. Matey Harry looks like a bit of a plant, no? No pocket. Mind you James Middleton deployed no pocket hanky and looks far more dashing with beard and substantial tie. Do you reckon the Middletons get a clothes budget for this sort of thing? Hard to tell. Mike could do with a new suit really. Surely there's a budget. Philip's thinking something should/could be done, while William's shoes and sox make me double tense. Not gonna talk about the women. That would be ungentlemanly.

A new royal family, a wild nobility- We are a family!

Nice that there was some three piece action in the end- not suiting, but suiteing. I'd have gone three piece for this one. Sitting down, coat off in shirt sleeves with the spawn on one's lap-that would have been properly sartorially memorable stuff. Will update before am deported to Wembley for community service on the telly.

Stubbs out.
