Anne was bringing the Olympic torch from Greece to Cornwall. Her children are private citizens.

It's not only the shoes that are awful, but that dress!

=Queen's handshake and Kate's curtesy for a despot as they entertain brutal King of Bahrain at Jubilee lunch (so who was at biggest gathering of world royals since the Coronation?) | Mail Online

Does Ms. Rebecca English imply that British royals are somehow superior to other royals? The article dragged through mud almost every guest. Although one should not expect anything intelligent from the Daily Mail, the tone of the article is offensive and rude.

Possibly... Or it could be our Informal Picture of the Month for June since the theme is Jubilee Celebrations, lol. We haven't started discussing our options yet.

And, with respect to the Swaziland dress... It's a quinceanera dress. An over-the-top, insanely ruffled quinceanera dress.

Apparently, The Queen and Prince Philip were not in attendance. This event was hosted by Prince Charles on her behalf.

I am very new to all this but could someone explain why the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh would not attend a dinner hosted by her son to celebrate her Jubilee, would not attend?

Probably because they'll have spoken to all the guests earlier in the day so didn't really need to be there. Prince Charles couldn't attend the earlier luncheon, so it makes sense that he would take the opportunity to entertain the guests when they're all here already.

There's going to be a big military parade in Windsor this morning, with HM and the DoE present. I know they're in great shape for their age, but hosting a big lunch, then attending a dinner and heading back to Windsor for an early-ish start might just have been asking too much of them at their age. In much the same way, the Queen hosted a pre-wedding dinner for royals at William and Kate's wedding last year, but W&K didn't actually attend.

The York princesses are royal by birth. Anne's children aren't royal - her words not mine. Anne said many years ago 'my children aren't royal, they just have The Queen for their grandmother'.

The York princesses will probably turn out at events like this for the rest of their lives, in the way that the Kents and Gloucesters do. The difference is that the York princesses won't be having a load of royal duties to do as well.

The junior Royals have a part to play, if only by making up the numbers.

Perhaps they are being represented by their diplomats in London? I am personally disappointed that neither the Empress Farah Diba or Crown Prince of Iran, appear to have been invited. The late Shah was a great friend of the UK and paid a state visit to our country, in the mid-70`s. His wife has endured her 30+ years in exile with great dignity and their son is a credit to his memory.
All world monarchs were invited, if they aren't there they chose not to come.

Apparently they were in attendance, all reports say they were there. They probably arrived away from other guests and didn't get photographed. They'd had enough of that at lunch.

One thing we know is where David Beckham was. He was part of the entourage with the Princess Royal bringing the Olympic flame to Cornwall Friday. To me, as future King and Queen Consort, they have the ability to meet and greet with anyone be it prince or pauper and make them feel comfortable.

Thanks Al bina for this article.
I too find this article disgusting and irrespectful.What a lack of respect for the Queen's and her country foreign guests.
The scandals the journalist listed for every royal are for sure true but she has only forgotten that the British royal family has some scandals too.

Quite right Osipi. David Beckham may be a celebrity, but he's also a patriot who has served the country in lots of different ways. He's always happy to promote Britain around the world. I have no problem with any of the royals spending time with him.
