Nice to knight you, to knight you nice

So at last it will be Sir Bruce Forsyth in the Queen's Birthday Honours announced this morning. Also the presented of Radio 4's Women's Hour becomes Dame Jenni Murray. The Governor of the Bank of England becomes Sir Mervyn King and the actress Janet Suzman also becomes a Dame.

Later today the latest Royal Duke will ride as an escort for the Sovereign as she takes her Birthday salute at the Trooping of the Colour by the 1st Battalion Scots Guards. He was seen here riding in the Colonel's review last week, sitting on the grey Wellesley. This is the first time the Duke of Cambridge has taken part in Trooping the Colour, although he along with his brother Prince Harry have laid wreaths at the cenotaph.

He'll be wearing the same uniform as Colonel in the Irish Guard that he wore on his wedding with the addition of the tradition Bearskin hat as opposed to the cap he wore on that day.
