Following King Charles’ note, an army officer reportedly told the guard commanders: “Please could you pass onto your troops that when posting sentries first thing in the morning at St James’s Palace that they should do so at a slightly lower volume.”

King Charles’s remark is understood to have been a “gentle request” to be applied only in the mornings rather than a complaint about the guardsmen’s behaviour, according to The Sun.

The King’s Guard has been protecting royal palaces since 1660 and carry out the ceremonial Changing of the Guard – during which they hand over the responsibility for protecting Buckingham Palace and St James’s Palace to the new guard – either every day or four times a week, depending on the season.

King’s ‘only option is to freeze Harry out’ to ‘de-escalate tensions’ ahead of Coronation

A royal historian has claimed that the row between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Royal Family marks a “very dangerous point in Royal history which could be catastrophic if not handled properly.”

Allegations fired towards senior members of the Royal Family included Harry getting involved in a physical altercation with his older brother Prince William, and Queen Camilla, Charles’ wife, displaying a coldness toward the younger sibling as he was not likely to ever be the monarch.

And for Mr Lownie, Charles and those in the upper echelons of Buckingham Palace were caught between a “rock and a hard place… damned if they do, damned if they don’t”, particularly when it came to offering an olive branch to the Sussexes.

Speaking exclusively to, Mr Lownie said: “Tensions need to be de-escalated. The only solution will be freezing the Sussexes out.”

Queen Elizabeth II stopped wearing a ‘cold colour’ to royal weddings after 1986

When the late Queen attended the first weddings of her eldest three children, she always wore the same colour – blue, which is said to bring good fortune to the bride and groom.

In 1973, when Princess Anne walked down the aisle to marry Captain Mark Phillips, the late monarch wore a blue outfit and hat designed by Sir Norman Hartnell.

Then in 1986, the late monarch chose a pastel blue pleated skirt with a matching pastel blue overcoat for Prince Andrew’s nuptials to Sarah Ferguson.

All three of these weddings ended up in divorce.

When Princess Anne remarried in 1992 to Timothy Laurence, the late Queen wore a bright green coat instead.

When Prince Edward tied the knot with Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth wore a lilac gown and a matching fascinator.

Why Kate intentionally wore teal instead of traditional green outfit for St. Patrick’s Day

Kate, Princess of Wales surprised royal fans with her vivid shade of teal at the Irish Guard’s St Patrick’s Day Parade yesterday.

The colour of her outfit was unexpected because she usually wears dark green to the regiment’s traditional celebrations, the colour most commonly associated with Ireland and St Patrick’s Day.

But there was an important reason why the Princess broke away from tradition.

Although Kate’s teal colour choice felt surprising, it is believed she was intentionally matching with the Irish Guards’ plume which is in the same hue of blue-green. The colour teal also features prominently on their regimental badge.

How a British fashion brand became a pawn in Princess Kate and Meghan’s ‘feud’

It has been reported the rift between the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Sussex deepened because the former was prioritised by the fashion house Erdem.

How exactly has this luxury British brand become part of the well-publicised so-called “feud” between the royal women?
