Thanks for posting the pictures... but, where is the Queen Elizabeth II? I didn´t find her yet in those pictures...
The Duchess of Gloucester is using turmalines jewels, right?

I think that pink stone in her tiara is kunzite.

I think everyone's wondering who that lady is. Perhaps she's the Lord Mayor's wife or something?

Equal rankings

I think you're confusing titles with position. At this level it is the position that matters. Both Crown Princess Mette Marit and the Duchess of Cornwall are the wives of Heirs to Thrones, and thus, in the scheme of things, equal. (Similarly, Emperor Akihito, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Albert of Monaco rank equally because all are reigning monarchs.) Mette Marit may have chosen to show "extra" respect and deference to Camilla by curtseying; not required by protocol, but her decision to do so for whatever reason.

As an aside, those of us with long memories will recall the first meeting between Queen Elizabeth and Mette Marit in Oslo. Mette Marit gave one of the deepest curtseys I have ever seen on a Royal-to-Royal level. Virtually knee to the ground. An impressive homage.

Check out the positioning, that gives the clue, and the answer. Go with Elspeth.

Has anyone else noticed that Princess Astrid of Norway was at the gala with her husband?

She's here, next to Haakon: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=206378

I think that is wonderful she went. It really shows the very close family bond between these two royal families.

After all, if you look in the line of sucession, Harald is the first monarch from another country to assume the throne of England....should something happen to the other 60-65 or so before him....

Thank you Elspeth and Warren. Given what I think of the Lord Mayor of London and his sometimes....interesting behavior....I will say that if that is his wife she is beautiful.

I noticed that the Duchess of Gloucester has a chest full of medals as well as her jewellery and orders. None of the other royal ladies show up to galas sporting all those medals. Is there a reason for it? Perhaps she's afraid of an assassination attempt and thinks they'll deflect a bullet aimed at her heart or something?

Oh, don't pick on Birgitte, Elspeth. I like her. If she has earned all those orders and medals, then she has every right to wear them!! You go Birgitte!!!:)

I'm not picking on her; it just looks weird to wear medals with evening dress rather than uniform.
