Sashes

Could anyone explain the sashes that are worn at the more formal occasions? I know that they are colored according to the royal house. Does each function dictate whether or not the royals wear their own colors or the colors of the host family? What is the significance of the side they are worn on? I apologize if this has been answered before, but I have been unable to find it and my curiousity is reaching a zenith!!! :)

The way you wear a sash at a royal function that is not hosted by your royal house is like this: If you have an order/sash from the country that is hosting the event, you wear that order/sash. If you do not have an order/sash from that country, you wear the one you have from your own country.
Each royal family has different coloured sashes for their orders. Denmark has light blue for the Order of the Elephant, Sweden also has light blue for their highest Order, the Order of the Seraphim, Belgium has a purple sash for the Order of Leopold I, Great Britain has a dark blue sash for the Order of the Garter, the Netherlands has a blue and orange sash for their highest order (I think it's the Order of Wilem something?), Norway has a blue, red and white sash for the Order of St. Olav, and Spain has a blue and white sash for the Order of Charles III(?).
The sashes are mainly worn from the (when facing the person) left shoulder down to the right hip. But, if you have the same coloured sash as another country (ie. Denmark & Sweden), then it changes. For example, at the King of Sweden's 60th Birthday celebrations, CP Mary of Denmark wore her Danish sash over her right shoulder connecting at her left hip, because the Swedish royal were wearing their order over their left shoulder down to their right hip. However, if an event was held in Denmark and the Swedish royal family were there, for example CP Frederik & CP Mary's wedding in 2004, Prince Carl Philip & Princess Madeleine (not sure about CP Victoria) of Sweden wore their light blue Swedish sashes over their left shoulder down to their right hip because they were in Denmark.

What royals are with Queen Elizabeth in this picture? I'm not as familiar with some of the older pics of royals (when they were younger).

The woman on the right looks very much like Paola of Belgium. The tiara she is wearing also looks very much like one of the Belgian tiaras Paola often wears. So, if that is Paola on the right, the man would be Albert?

You're right, Jess. That is Paola when still a Princess. The gentleman, however, is the late King Baudoin.

Okay then :) I have never seen a picture of the late King, so I wouldn't know him even if I magically met him on the street!

On the issue of Etiquette, There is a photograph of the Lord High Commissioner of The Church of Scotland (The Lord Mackey) wearing The Sash of The Order of The Thistle and the Star with Morning Suit, Surely he should not be wearing the sash as this is reserved for White Tie and Uniform.

At the king of Norway's 70th birthday, I notice Prince Albert of Monaco wasn't wearing any order/sash at all, not even one from his own country. Does anyone ever make state visits to Monaco and that is why he doesn't have one? I noticed that most other heads of state and prince/sses were wearing the Norwegian sash.

I don't know why he choose not to wear his own sash. I think he doesn't have the order of St. Olav, bcause both Monaco and Norway Royal never make an official visit to each other. He also didn't wear a sash when he attend King Bumibhol Aduljadey Diamond Jubilee.

I looked him up, and he has lots of different orders from places like Panama, El Salvador, etc. He also was given Grand Cross of the Jordanian Renaissance (Nahdah medal) (from www.palais.mc) by King Abdullah II, so I don't know if that can be counted or not. I don't even know if its a sash! But I found that out, so I thought you guys would want to know.

The following is a list of HSH Prince Albert II's decoration from www.palais.mc, you can usually bet if its a grand cross it has a sash, though not every time bu 99.9%:

H.S.H. Prince Albert has also been bestowed the following foreign distinctions :
      • Grand Officer of the National Order of the Lion of Senegal, awarded in May 1977 by H.E. Mr. Léopold Sedar Senghor, President of the Republic of Senegal, during his official visit to that country ;
      • Knight Grand Cross of The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, January 27th, 1983
