A rota photographer was allowed in for the first time, lovely to see full length shots.

I too am shocked they allowed photos. Great for us. I love Her Majesties gown. The Lovers Knot tiara looks good on Kate and she seems to like wearing it. It really suits her.

The photos are great - showing many different styles worn by the women attending.
The Queen looks beautiful. Her gown details the warm but elegant lace perfectly. She is so energetic still.

Camilla wore her usual Court outfit, but The Queen looked amazing. I mean, the royal Women of Windsor just dazzled tonight.

Lovely coordination by the three women—all in sparkling versions of white or off-white and all-white jewels. They really stand out in a room full of diplomats in National dress, which must be a great effect for attendees trying to keep an eye out for the royals they’ve come to meet.

Goodness! It was nice to get actual pictures of the event instead of the usual car pictures. All the ladies look great!

Yes, the Fail again with the Diana comparisons....give it a rest already! Although, it was nice to see Kate in the Cambridge tiara I am always hoping something else will come out the vault. She must be used to its weight and finds it bearable. Plus...its nice to look at.

I never thought of that but it's a pretty astute observation. Mind you, with Catherine's height, stratospheric heels and all those swinging pearls and diamonds on top, the colour only matters to short people like me who would see the white moving between the other guests.

Long may these pictures of this grand event continue next year and the year after that. It’s too beautiful not to photograph for everyone to see.

They won't if they continue to concentrate on Catherine. Decent shots of HM, Charles, Camilla and William and the thousand odd guests comprising politicians and diplomats from around the world meeting and chatting to members of the BRF hardly got a look in.

Keep this up and they will score the ultimate home goal.

I noticed that too. The focus seemed to be on Kate and others that were shown seemed to be an afterthought as if they were required to show at least a few other people. I am happy though that there there were more pictures than we usually get though.

Fantastic photos of the monarchy at work! Great of the RF to allow photos! A great way to take focus off of the fictitious tabloid "Fab Four wars" and put it back on what the British royals are truly about!

Good to see them. I know that this is an issue that Harry has been working on for awhile.

This is a very topical issue here in London at the moment so I'm glad to see Charles and Harry raising awareness via the Prince's Trust.
