yeah, you got a point there, iowabelle. Bette Midler is an outstanding looking woman. She's really come into her own style as she's gotten older.

That necklace is my favorite from the whole ensemble. :)

I dislike Camilla, but she looks very regal in the pictures. Who wouldnt wearing that tiara?

I think Queen Sonja is the most elegant tonight, and I like a lot the dress of princess MM. :)

I must say that I am incredibly shocked by tonight. Camilla was wearing the one tiara I thought she would not wear and she looked FANTASTIC in it. I can't say I cared much for her gown, but she looked great all around. I loved all of Mette-Marits outfits today, her 2 day ones and her gown were all beautiful. Both Queens looked regal, but I must say Queen Sonja should get another gown (she looked very royal and regal however).

For some reason, this visit seems grander than the one the Norwegian Royals made to Sweden and the one the Swedish Royals made to Norway this year. Anyway, I can't wait for tomorrow.

I dont like the south asian/colonial associations with that tiara but it is a stunner. I guess if the british royals were too choosy about where their jewels came from and how they were "acquired", a lot of the major pieces wouldnt see the light of day.
Camilla looks very impressive. I think she was definately looking to make a statement tonight and she succeeded.
CP Mette-Marit's dress is very pretty.

Camilla looks simply fabulous! Congrats to her! She looks great, and seems to be truly enjoying herself. More often then not (and this is my opinion) Diana looked bored at these types of events. Camilla looks as though she is truly happy to be there, with Charles, representing her country! WOO HOO for her.

I hope to see many more beautiful pictures, such as these, in the future!

BBC article - Camilla wears first royal tiara

Make no mistake about it, humera, Her Majesty the Queen was the one making the statement tonight. It's her tiara and she lent it to Camilla.

The BBC did an interesting write up on it. Here are some tidbits from the article:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4374820.stm
Quote:
The diamond headpiece, made in 1911, was the Durbar Tiara previously worn by Queen Mary in Delhi to celebrate King George V's coronation.
.......
It is believed the Queen has never worn the priceless piece of jewellery.
This is not the gesture of a monarch who is merely 'resigned' to accept Camilla.

Thank you everyone for the great pictures!

For Camilla's first gala, I think she looks spectacular! She does not look overdone despite the size and the grandness of the tiara. She was smart to keep the other jewels and accessories small and low key and for the tiara to be the real star. The gown wasn't fantastically grand but the black is very becoming on her and was a nice backdrop for the jewels.

Camilla is heralding in a very distinct sense of style -- simple, understated and elegant without a lot of fuss, and I love it!

What has been the reaction in Great Britain been to Camilla's first gala? Does the British public approve?

I must admit I find that a little surprising. Considering all the things I've heard about the Queen's relationship with Camilla. But whether their personal relationship is a good one or not, QE does seem to be strongly affirming Camilla's position as Charles' consort.

The choice of the tiara is interesting though. Camilla may be Queen one day but she'll never be Empress of India. Although, as I said before, they cant be too choosy about the colonial connotations. Perhaps, as one member said before, it is an attempt to rehabilitate some of the pieces like the Delhi durbar tiara.

It's me again! I couldn't resist! There is something about MM which is so attractive and fresh, she may not be the prettiest princess, or the one with the most dress sense, or the most fashionable and glamouress, but there is something about her which makes me understand why the CP fell for her, she is so natrual and unpretentious. I know Iv'e mentioned it before, I just can't resist!

Magnificient. There was no way "they" could get away with not letting Camilla wear a significant tiara. She is a mature women apparently at ease with her new role and it shows. Camilla has arrived.

why there's so few photos from the gala banquet? mette-marit looks really great, if only more close-up photos of her & haakon. that would be great...

a great photo series from aftenposten without watermarks :
