Re:

How brilliant is technology?

I've just printed this one out and it's in a frame ready to go up on the wall tomorrow and it was only taken a few hours ago.

I think she chose this one as it like the major tiara in her collection.
I like this ensemble. Is it the emerald tiara that was mentioned before?

I think the tiara is TOO BIG. And her hair went flat, unfortunately for her.

The dress is acceptable IMO (although I wouldn't have picked it).

Interesting that they gave her a tiara of Queen Mary's. (Wonder if the Queen is turning over in her grave.)

Perhaps Camilla's dress isn't really black but a midnight blue or some other dark shade.

It's interesting that both queens wore off-white (I wonder if there was some consultation or if it was just an accident).

MM looks great!

Yeah I thought so too iowabelle when I saw her in the carriage. But when she was in the reception room, I saw that actually her hair got fuller under the tiara so it needed something substantial up top to balance. I don't think that's the reason the Queen allowed her to use the Durbar tiara though, it would be a rather silly reason :p

I agree about Mette-Marit's dress; its hard to find something that looks good in your last month of pregnancy. The green really becomes her.

edited to add: gosh Mette-Marit is really tall! She's taller than Prince Philip and he's 6'1" isn't he?

I agree. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Camilla will be Queen. She received more than just a tiara symbolically....it was the Crown made for Queen Mary for the Delhi Durbar where the Indian princes paid homage to her and George V as Emperor and Empress of India.

Since this is a gift directly from the Queen, it certainly sends a very strong message to the world of Camilla's rank and future role.

I think Edward and Sophie was there. Look at this picture and you can see Edwards face:http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=205998

The necklace was a gift from Prince Charles before they were married. The earrings are a mystery, but are likely a gift from Charles as well.

I meant, look at Camilla's bangs. Flat. (Sort of what happened on Diana's wedding day.) It might have been a little humid, or Camilla might have been a little warm. Could happen to anyone.

I saw Bette Midler the other day on TV and her hair looked wonderful. It was feathery like Camilla's, but less heavy looking. I wonder how Camilla would look in a similar cut (since they're about the same age).

Well I can agree with You some way. The Royal houses in Britain and Norway couldn´t have had it easy with scandals during many Years. But it must have been love between their Crown Princes and their consorts, because else they couldn't have the energy to enforce their will the way they've did. Things are the way they are and even if I don't like everything about it I'm glad for the Monarchy when things seem to be good. :) That's better then "worse".

It's inevitable the Queen will grant Camilla her personal order, but since it is within the gift of the Sovereign, it will be given when the Queen is good and ready.
