Originally posted 06/05/2012 10:30AM

When it comes to Royal Family affairs, here's a motto the palace could get behind: double, or nothing.

Once again, Prince William and Kate made for a fairy-tale moment Tuesday as they marked the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with another carriage ride through London – this time, in the processional back to Buckingham Palace from Parliament Square. (Not that they're strangers to this fancy form of transportation: They rode via carriage last summer in Ottawa while celebrating Canada Day.)

God Save The Queen!

Queen Elizabeth cut something of a lonely figure as she processed down alone the aisle of London's St. Paul's Cathedral for Tuesday's special service to mark her Diamond Jubilee.

With her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in the hospital, Her Majesty, 86, took her place at the end of the procession, a few paces behind her son Prince Charles, 63, and his wife Camilla.

Just ahead of the trio was the the Duchess of Cambridge in a dusty pink Alexander McQueen dress and Jane Taylor hat.

Prince Charles Tries His Hand at Being a Deejay

Never too old to learn a new trade, Britain's Prince Charles received some guidance on the finer points of scratching and fading a record while visiting an employment skills workshop in Toronto Tuesday.

The tutorial came during his and wife Camilla's four-day visit to the city, all part of the Diamond Jubilee marking his mother Queen Elizabeth's rule over the Commonwealth. Two weeks ago, Charles, 63, tried out as a TV weatherman in Scotland, and proved he could point to a map with the best of them.

But how was he as a deejay?

When two adorable dogs presented themselves to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in a receiving line in Denmark on Monday, the royal couple did what comes naturally: They leaned in for some puppy time.

The Prince of Wales bid hello to a friendly Jack Russell terrier – a dead ringer for The Artist star Uggie – while Camilla, who followed closely behind, patted another lucky pooch.

Camilla Pulls a Gun on the Set of The Killing

There's a new sheriff in town – sort of.

Yes, that's Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and she's pulling a (fake) gun during a visit to the set of the Danish show The Killing Monday in Copenhagen.

According to reports, Camilla, a big fan of the European murder mystery series (which has been adapted in English for U.S. audiences by AMC), plotted the set visit, in an abandoned scrapyard, as part of her Scandinavian tour. She was joined on set by Denmark's Crown Princess Mary and the show's star Sofie Grabol.

"I think it is really surreal. But it's lovely that she wanted to come here," Grabol, who plays Detective Sarah Lund, told the U.K.'s Press Association. "I told her last night to wear flat shoes. This is not really an inviting place for a royal visit."

Camilla reportedly watches the show with Prince Charles, according to the show's creator Soren Sveistrup, who met the couple Sunday at a reception hosted by the British ambassador.

She's getting it straight from the horse's mouth!

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, visited the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery headquarters yesterday, spending a few affectionate moments with the four-legged members of the saluting battery. In between feeding mints to the animals, Camilla had a few laughs – and even a little scare.

While most of the horses stayed polite in their interactions with the Duchess, one aggressive animal pushed her, prompting the Duchess to scold the offending horse.

Thursday morning brought a very rare tea party to London's swankiest food store.

In attendance, a royal trifecta: The Queen, Camilla and the Duchess of Cambridge (who wore a blue M Missoni coat with a daffodil and Rupert Sanderson pumps for St. David's Day) – with all three receiving special Jubilee picnic hampers that included dog treats.

"One thing in common with all the ladies is their love of a hound," says Kate Hobhouse, chairman of the Fortnum & Mason food store, on why the baskets included the venison-flavored dog biscuits, called Hearty Treats for Happy Hounds. "It was a little bit of fun."
