The best-dressed of the Sovereign's Shin-digs (imho):

HIM Empress Michiko of Japan
HM Queen Anne-Marie of the Hellenes
HM Queen 'Masenate Mohato Seeiso of Lesotho
HRH Grand Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg
HRH Princess Srirasmi of Thailand
HRH Princess Lalla Meryem of Morocco
HSH The Princess of Monaco
HH Sheika Mozah bint Nasser Al-Missned

Special mention: HM Queen Sonja of Norway's dinner gown

And I think we all know who's the winner of least well-dressed........ :shuffle:

I thought Prince Charles was the host of this dinner? Therefore, it's his event, not the Queen's. Perhaps the Queen giving him an opportunity as heir to the throne to host a major event with his, um, colleagues :lol:

Perhaps also the reason William did not attend, so as not to take away the actual heir's moment to shine.

I read somewhere(?) a couple of years ago that HM was going to quitely have Charles take over her Royal Duties because of her advanced age.
If she lives too much longer it will get to the place where he is a kind of Regent.

I guess I just thought it was weird to have all these people travel to celebrate the Queen, and then she doesn't go to the dinner. Charles & Camilla could still host and her show up for a bit.

Camilla ought to drop the pointy boob look.

Ms. Morocco looked great, and Charlene's gown was amazing from the waist down. Not sure about the gauze -- between the width of her shoulders and the way the gauze fell, I think it makes her look even more square on top. I wonder if she's a person who mostly has an unhappy countenance? Some people do, even when they're not really unhappy.

Someone desperately needs quality foundation undergarments. :wideeyes:

A Scottish Mint nearly came out of my mouth at speed after reading that. Good thing I've got good reflexes. OTOH, I also just slapped myself in the face. However, if I hadn't done that, it would have landed on the Preemie hat I'm knitting, so it all worked out in the end.


I'm surprised I'm the first to report on this, but...

A little Princess was Christened and her names finally revealed in Denmark today. She will now be known as...

Her Highness Princess Athena Marguerite Françoise Marie!!

I like it. :)

That's pretty :).

Here's a picture from the christening (http://www.daylife.com/photo/06rw5WM4FM6KY) (ETA: skatesindreams beat me to it) and one of Princess Marie and Princess Athena (http://www.daylife.com/photo/07KQfmo8K11LJ).

And if I'm reading the post counter correctly, this is post 1000, which means a new thread IIRC.

Fitting considering there's the Christening of a Future Queen of Sweden tomorrow. Nothing like something historic to start a new Royalty thread w/IMO. :)
