No #DuchessofCambridge but a Glamorous #DuchessofCornwall at Buckingham Palace reception #Royals #Tiaras



I think it should count as an official engagement for senior members of the royal family who attend because it appears in the official Court Circular. I just find it odd that the event isn't in their official published schedule and little to no pictures are published. It's like it's an event the takes place under a deep cloud of darkness where no one can really know it's happening.
The official published schedules are, at best, incomplete and you can't rely on them. They never include, for example, audiences, mtgs with Officials, weekly mtgs with PM etc and they all appear in the CC.

It is irritating (she says, biting her tongue!)

Prince Charles reminded me of Mr Leonid Brezhnev because of many medals. Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, looked all right.

The crazy part is whenever the palace conducts surveys on the British Monarchy website, I really don't think they listen on how they can improve the site. They could be more transparent about the royals engagements and their everyday workings. They could also release more pictures and videos of their events. Sometimes you wish you could teach the press officers and other officials a thing or two.

All the officials can do is advise.

But I think Charles and Camilla are accessible and they have different types of engagements such as tea parties and children playing in the garden type of party which other royals have picked up on. And they let photographers in and chat to them as well. WE get some great pictures of these 2.

Sophie is the same; Edward less so.

When the Cambridges are on engagements, they are good at giving access - I've been surprised particularly the access to George.

The Queen wont change and access is not going to happen.

And it isnt just the BRF - the media aren't interested in Andrew, Anee and Edward, some of them have failed to recognise the Glos and Kents.

I think that it will change eventually.

I think the Cambridge's should've attended, unless William is busy with his studies.

I'm more surprised that neither any of the Kents, the Gloucesters or princess Alexandra didn't attend than that the Cambridges didn't.

Last year, only Her Majesty & Prince Philip, Charles & Camilla and William & Catherine attended. I like that the group is smaller and focusing on the senior royals. Now, if only you can get them to release some pictures...that'll be a miracle.

cepe,
This was an evening reception.

The Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles and Camilla all had day time engagements.

Princess Anne & Princess Alexandra attending would have been nice. With close-up pictures of both.

There is nothing exquisite in Camilla's, The Duchess of Cornwall, tiara. I wonder why she did not wear a tiara from the royal vaults.
It is sad that the Kents and Princess Alexandra were unable to attend the reception.

The Duchess of Gloucester, Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra all attended different carol services and so were engaged elsewhere.

Anne was in Wales during the day.

Andrew had his own Reception to attend.
