Very true. It's about time they attend an event with their royal counter parts.

The standard protocol is for heirs to thrones and their spouses to attend these events, unless they are underage. This allows the new monarch to be the senior person present as the representatives of the other monarchs aren't monarchs in their own right.

I dont know the answer to your question, but my immediate response was - what on earth were they looking at??? I think they are in Australia for the Melbourne Cup (might be wrong) but it is a great picture!

Anyone know what was happening?

The Queen and the Duke & Duchess of Cornwall each host world royalty last year, to a rousing success from what I could see. I think they get together fairly often. The logistics of coordinating the royals, their staffs and their individual security details with accomidations must take months to plan.

That picture is from last year's Melbourne Cup - but with so many great photos of the pair taken that day why chose that one.

I know what you mean. I love the Wessex's but I do think Charles & Camilla or William & Catherine should be involved in the continental royal events, as Charles & William are the heirs to the throne. Whereas Edward is down the list.

Completely agree

I wonder if they've done this because Edward and Sophie are much closer in age and stage (have a young family) to the other European heirs. I suspect Sophie has a lot more in common with Mathilde, Mette-Marit, Mary, Letizia etc. than Camilla does. Even more with Charles and the princes. He's 20 years older than most of them. On the other side, William was too young and focused more on his military career than a royal life. Of course, that's changed now, but just in the past 2 years.

I would be surprised if you see any tiaras at the April 29th dinner. Other than state dinners and the annual Diplomatic reception Beatrix has never thrown a white tie and tiaras event in her entire reign.

I imagine Charles, Camilla, William and Catherine (more recently of course) have had the same oppurtunity to attend every royal wedding we've had in the past 8 years. Sophie and Edward represent The Queen who, I imagine, chooses or asks around who would like to go these "important" events. If no prior engagement is set, I see no reason as to why Charles and Camilla couldn't have attended the events Sophie and Edward have. The royal families of Europe have graced the BRF with their presence on more than one royal occasion. Yet the attendance has not been returned. I wonder why.

Same thoughts here, Lumutqueen. I think the Wessex's do a fine job on representing The Queen and family at the European royal events but I think The Prince of Wales & The Duke of Cambridge should be more involved with these kind of events.

There is a whole tread dedicated to this topic. In the UK we generally do not invite whole royals families to weddings etc as they do on the continent. Charles did attend the weddings in Athens, Oslo, Amsterdam, Brussels, Madrid and Seville as well as Tokyo,sometimes also with Edward and Sophie in attendance. He also attended Beatrix's 1980 inauguaration and various royal funerals so it is not as if he has ignored the continental royal families. Other than the wedding of Sonja and Harold (due to court mourning for Princess Marina) QEII has sent a family member to all the important royal gatherings on the continent, and they cant have been too offended because they seem to flock to London whenever they get an invitation.

Personally I don't think The Prince of Wales is too fussed about european royal outsiders and The Duke of Cambridge has the "part time" royal thing going for him. If Charles and Camilla didn't show up to this inauguration and The Queen had sent an ambassador, I'd expect no one to show up to his coronation either.
