The observances come just days after the U-N security council voted to give Iraq one more chance to disarm or face serious consequences.

Iraq has until Friday to accept those terms and a month to provide inspectors a complete list of the country's weapons of mass destruction.

(( For a brief moment yesterday, some dignity was restored to Britain's royal family. The Queen laying a wreath during the annual rememberance day ceremony in London. But it was only a brief moment. Everything else having to do with the royals these days seems not only undignified -- it seems downright sordid.

(SOT Simon Hoggart -- Newspaper columnist)

The level of ill-feeling , and dislike and hatred and contempt you've got swilling around in royal circles now is, well I've never seen anything like it.

(Burrell around trial)

And it all has to do with this man -- Paul Burrell. He had been put on trial -- accused of stealing and hoarding about five-hundred items belonging to Princess Diana... items taken by him after she died.

(Burrell with Diana)

Burrell had been Diana's butler -- her rock he said she called him. And he had taken the items, he said, so they wouldn't be lost or destroyed in the frenzy following Diana's death.

(Burrell at trial again)

As it happened, the case was dropped after the Queen conveniently remembered that Burrell had told her he had taken the stuff for safekeeping.

(QE2)

But the speculation was that the royals wanted the trial stopped so that more royal laundry would not be hung out in public.

(SOT Ingrid Seward)

I think it was perhaps naive of the queen's advisors to think that by halting the trial the dirt wouldn't come out because everything comes out now .

(tab headline splay)

The tabloids here know what sells papers and they've been full of what the butler saw for weeks.

(Butler and Queen)

At the center of the intrigue was a meeting between Burrell and The Queen -- not this one where she gave him an award -- but a meeting in which he told her he had Diana's stuff and in which she seemed to have been watching to many Star Wars movies and warned him about what she called dark forces.

(SOT Simon Hoggart)

he said some weird things about princess diana spoke in color whereas you marm spoke only in black and white, what's all that about, she said there are forces out there powerful forces out there which we do not understand what was that about,

(Diana)

You get the picture. But the picture gets murkier still because one of the items Diana was known to have had was a tape recording she had made in which one male member of Prince Charles' staff accuses another of having raped him. Not only that but after an internal palace inquiry and a later police investigation the matter was dropped leading to the question of whether there had been a cover up.

(SOT Ingrid Seward)

so as far as theyre concerned its an open and shut case but we're in a world controlled by the media and to the media its not an open and shut case 1539

(on cam)

So how much of a blow to the House of Windsor is all this? Accusations of rape are a serious matter, especiallty when the attacker -- who can't be named for legal reasons -- is known to be a senior member of Prince Charles' staff. In the time honored royal tradition, it's assumed heads will roll.

(SOT Ingrid Seward)

the whole thing about the british monarchy is that its like a medieval monarchy and I can assure you that heads will roll but the head that rolls wil not be prince charles'
So if you can stand it... Stay tuned. For the Early Show, I'm MP in London. ))
