Why cross it off just because it's been seen this year?

I too think that the Queen will wear something big. The Kokoshnik is certainly a contender, as might be the Grand Duchess.
Query whether Camilla takes out the Greville necklace, even in three string form?
Some of the brooches that have diamonds that have a link will SA might make an appearance (Granny's Chips?)

My guess for the state visit from SA:
QEII: the Vladimir tiara (preferedly with the pearls)
Camilla: the honeycomb tiara, as usual
Anne: her festoon tiara (the gift from the shipping company) - and I want some CLEAR pictures of her. For the last few state visits she was always blurred in the the background.
Duchess of Glocester: Indian pearl and sapphire tiara
Princess Michael: I guess she won't attend, but if she does: the fringe tiara

Isn't Victoria's name day in March? That might be the next big gala after the SA state visit.

Yes Victoiras nameday is on 12. March. But there will be no Galadinner. Last year it was a concidence that one of the Representations Gals was on this day. This year there will be only one (which took place a few weeks ago) and not several like usually.

As much as I would love to see the kokoshnik tiara resurface again, I dont think it will. It doesnt seem to look right on HM any more. But Im having my fingers crossed for the Grand Duchess w/emeralds and If its my lucky day, the Godman Necklace as well!!!

As for Camilla, most likely the honeycomb, though I wouldnt mind the Cubbitt tiara worn with all five strands of the Greville necklace.

It would be great to see the Delhi Durbar again, and SA is one of the countries for which it can be worn, without causing offence to the Indian people.

As far as I can recall she has never worn them outside of Denmark.
Its and afternoon wedding and the rubies would be too heavy and too ostentatios. Wedding tiara is perfect.

Apparently the DOC wore the honeycomb (again...). Maybe the aquamarine for Anne ...

Definitively the honeycomb :

THe Queen was also wearing the diamond necklace she recieved from the South African government. I'm so happy to see the kokoshnik again and it didn't look that bad at all.

The Duchess of Cornwall wore the Honeycomb (no surprise there) and the middle eastern emeralds which is amusing to me because just yesterday I thought it would be great to see the durbar with this necklace. Oh well, at least I got one right!

If only Mary & Fred go perhaps HM will loan her the floral aigrette tiara that HM wore to their wedding :)
