True, I forgot Anne's in the Southern Ocean, Camilla's ill and Sophie isn't there, it is nice to see Brigitte up at the top for a change, she looks really well in her tiara and RVO

I wonder why only Prince Andrew was able to attend the banquet. Notable absence of Princess Anne, Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Count and Countess of Wessex sends an interesting message. Given the information by Royal Protocol, Princess Anne and Duchess of Cornwall have got some excuses for not showing. At the same time, I could not help, but wonder what prevented Prince Edward and Countess Sophie from attending. Does it mean that the visit was organised on a short notice?

Picture details

This picture looks interesting. There is something glowing on Princess Michael's (at the back) left shoulder. I wonder if she's been given the Royal Family Order at long last. I wish we could get a proper look.

The Duchess isn't well of course, as for Princess Michael's RFO - I was thinking the other day it might be about time she had it.

It would be a graceful act on Her Majesty's part to finally give RFO to Princess Michael. However, I doubt she will ever do it.

It could be one of the most high-profile Banquet that the Duchess has attended until now i think. It's so great to see her sitting alongside the President. Not many chances like last night at all.

The Duchess of Gloucester is at most state Banquets but it was nice to see her right up at the top table, she is so elegant with the gloves and lovely smile

Hmm any particular reason, or because of the mixing members.
Or has she met the President before, i mean has she visited Mexico on a personal tour?
Lovely pictures.

She was the highest rank lady there. Anne is in the Falklands, Camilla is sick, and Sophie didn't attend.

As I said before, I wish we had photos of the other side of the top table as Princess M would have been sitting there as the only other Royal lady after the DOG. I have noticed before that all the pics of state banquets at Buckingham palace are taken of the Queen's right-hand side so you never see who is sitting on the other side.

Nice to see the Brazilian Aquamarine ensemble on HM, also nice to see the Indian tiara on the Duchess of Gloucester.

Well I can agree with the second statement HRH looks really well, as for HM (which I really regret to say)

The aquamarine parure isn't a favourite of mine, either. It looks awfully heavy, and HM is such a small woman.

I agree, It just isn't a good look for The Queen, she has such lovely tiaras esp. GGBI, pity the aquamarines have to make an outing every now and then!!

As WBenson has kindly explained it's the Girls of Great Britian and Irleand Tiara, sorry for the silly abbreviation.

If we see bandages on Michelle's ankles, we'll know what happened.
