I am so excited about the pieces that Camilla is wearing! The Delhi Durbar, the Boucheron Honey Comb, the Diamond Riviere--OOOOOHHHH that diamond riviere! Stunner. I wonder what we will see next on HRH???? She has worn two such important tiaras--it would be hard to top either. I'd like to see a fringe tiara or the Teck Crescent Rose tiara next. OR, I could go for the Boucheron with the three row diamond neckace...oh, what the heck--make it the five row! Like in this photo:

Well, it's ostentatious but it'd suit Camilla. And the necklace and tiara do sort of go together, which is helpful.

Isn't the next "big dressing" the visit of the Saudi King later this month? I think he has already given 'Milla some impressive gifts so hopefully we will see some of them with the Durbar Tiara.

I really liked the sapphire necklace better than the ruby; can't wait to see the emeralds. If she wore them with the Durbar, how fitting would that be! THe Durbar was made to go with emeralds.

Her Royal Highness The Princess Charles, Princess of Wales and Countess of Chester, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Carrick, Baroness of Renfrew, Lady of the Isles, Princess of Scotland has received the Family Order! She wore it tonight (and that yellow ribbon looked wonderful on her) with the Boucheron tiara and simply radiated. The Future Queen Consort has earned this honor and I know that I am pleased to see that she has received it---

Heavy on the titles...and all for noting the FOEII..lol.

Oh how royal watchers amuse me so.lol.

I'm truly not fond of the limited photo's from British State Banquets. In comparison, you get 'piles' from Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands which are just wonderful but it comes to Liz and Phil and you get no more than 5-6 perhaps and they aren't even anything to rave about.

I think every banquet should be conducted as was the Norwegian visit in 2005 where you had the sovereign's, their consort's (if in attendance), the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and whoever accompanied the visiting ruling couple..in this instance, a couple of senior Princes or whatever.

Madame Royale, are you saying you are not a Royal Watcher??? I think all of us on this board would fall under the category---
And yes, the number of photos released by Great Britian is scanty indeed. The photos released for the countries you mentioned are always numerous and beautiful.

There had been more photos in the past when the State Banquets took place at Windsor. In the last years all State Banquets where held at Buckingham Palace and there only the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the visiting Head of State with his/her Consort come out and pose for photos. You have the same in the Netherlands an official Group-photo, only that they aslo include Willem-Alexander and Máxima, Margriet and Pieter in this ophoto and then only a few photos from the speeches.

I can't see how you could interpret, from my comment, that I'm not a royal watcher, jcbcode99. I noted how I'm amused by those who take an interest in such things. It made no reference to my interest as it is clear, for all, that I myself am interested

I merely admired the need to relay Camilla's titles..and all for receiving the FOEII..hehe

Camilla's Saudi emeralds looked lovely - a classic design, very usable and not at all overly ostentatious like the Saudi ruby necklace! I guess now that she has necklaces in all the usual colours (diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies) she needs to start collecting tiaras to match as well!!!

These appear to be the Saudi sapphires (worn previously). We've seen the Saudi rubies; the emeralds remain in the presentation case awaiting their public debut.

Madame Royale--I have learned that the lack of face to face interaction on these boards can lead to some confusion!!!!!!! I was being playful (didn't come out that way) and a little tongue-in-cheek because we are all, how does my husband put it, a little obsessed with "this stuff"--I say if you're gonna have an addiction, might as well be Royal Jewels!

And here's me, slaving away wearing my fingers to the bone to provide this magnificent array of smilies so that people don't have to be confused about when they're joking. Not that we have a tongue-in-cheek smilie because the only one I found looks as though it's having a seizure, but any time you think your attempts at humour might be misunderstood, feel free to apply these:

Its difficult to tell from the pictures as to whether she was wearing emeralds or sapphires. The dress seemed to be a dark green colour, so it would be odd to wear sapphires with it. Also, the design of the Sapphire necklace worn by Camilla previously (at a Princes´Trust do about a year ago) was quite different. That said, she could have more than one sapphire neckace!!!
