Excellent updates everyone, hope they don't forget to show some shots of the Shard during the royal wedding media madness.

Yes they're staying. They are roller blinds, part of the solar-shading.

Yeah the red bits are because they are the roller blinds as mentioned above, though the large grey strips at the bottom of every window is just protection and they will be eventually removed, i think its that which is making it look the most dated.
