We’re back with several newsbytes, along with a look at some of the spring styles from Madderson London.

First, some very quick updates:

  • William, Kate and Harry will take part in events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. Lasting more than four months, this Battle was one of the deadliest in all of World War I; commonwealth forces suffered catastrophic losses. While not yet specified I believe they will be taking part in ceremonies at the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing in Northern France, shown below. There are several events on both June 30th and July 1st. Commemorations begin with a parade of 1916 people accompanied by 100 pipers, the formal service of commemoration, a piper’s memorial and other functions. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will join the younger royals for the July 1st activities.
