Madeleine is not fat. I am shocked to hear her called that Why must we be so hard on these women? Either they are being called anorexic (Letizia) or fat (Maxima and now Madeleine).

I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Victoria's day outfit. The black and white combo with the shoes is soooooo me!! I want it! I have to have it! I just have no place to wear it!
As for the evening wear:
The Queen looked nice. She wore my favorite tiara.
Victoria looked lovely. Even though I'm a firm beliver in that all hair should be worn "up" when wearing a tiara, I thought she looked extremely nice and it was a nice departure from her usual look. And she was even able to pull of the Not so nice looking tiara.
As for Madeline, she looked nice as usual. I love the color of the dress on her and the dressitself is very flattering. She has been puttingon weight since last year. (I think I mentioned it and noticed it around her birthday last year)but it's not as if she is obese or anything. She probably just stopped working out. Whatever the case, she looked lovely even if she did have to wear the "cyclopse" tiara!

I liked Victoria's black and white suit but not the hat which was just odd looking. I also have to agree that tiaras generally look better when hair is worn up. I think you can get away with it hanging down only when a tiara is very little, like the one Madeline wore but the bigger it is the worse it looks with loose flowing hair.

I don't know the exact history of the cut steel tiara Victoria wore at the state dinner, I do know cut steel tiaras came into vogue during one of the World Wars (I always mix it up so I'm not even going to try to get it right here) for economic reasons. Precious metals and gems were hard to come by and so the cut steel tiara was born. The close ups of Victoria wearing the tiara show the craftsmanship and how intricate the designs could be. I think it's a rather nice tiara, though far from my favorite.

I loved Victoria black/white day wear but i´m not so sure about the hat, it looked big and strange... I though love her evening wear and i actually like that tiara and it looked really good on her on the evening. Madeleines dress and tiara i didn´t like that much and the queens dress has been worn a little to often now, but ofcours the jewelry was exelent.

Has anyone got pics from the return dinner? there must have been one right?

That's tight! This tiara is called the Napoleonic Cut Steel and Gold tiara isn't it? I had completely forgotten. Another of my infamous blond moments it seems. Thank you, Lucien, for reminding me.

It also appears I had my facts mixed up just a teeny, tiny bit (only by a hundred years or so). Cut Steele tiaras were a cheap alternative to the real thing from the first French empire to Victorian era. One of these days I'll learn to check my assumptions before I post them as facts. For those of you who can't tell, I suffer from a little known affliction caled "brain clutter". Doh!

princess mahitab, I noticed your many, many posts stressing the wish to see photos and didn't want to ignore them any longer although I really don't understand what your problem is.
In order to be able to see photos, you simply have to register on this board, go to thread about the state visit you're interested in and click on one of the links to pics... It couldn't be easier, where's the problem??
