Than we must agree to disagree. Cause I don't like getting kisses from people I don't know...so I am going to go with that faux pas (Jimmy Carter kissing the Queen Mother).

In addition I believe either Charles or Phillip attended the Henri and Maria Theresa's wedding. I can't remember off hand who was in the picture but they definitely attended solo.

Still I would be a bit sad if I consistently attend such events by myself.

It depends on whose protocol. The band was out of place. It was obvioous he was still speaking. They were rude. And, actually, at dinners a band playing an anthem is ridiculous. He, certainly, didn't let us down.

It is rare though, which I find really bizarre. I was not stating that it has NEVER been done; I was simply saying that it's not done very often. Then again, Andrew may decline all the invitations.

Offering the toast ends the speech - it is that simple. The band is trained to start the anthem on hearing the toast offered - that is their cue and Obama was simply wrong.


It wasn't the band's fault but Obama's and he has to take the blame for not doing things the right way.


I have read a number of people who think that Mrs Obama looked good at the evening function but can anyone tell me when she put on all the weight - she used to look good but that dress made her look overweight and top heavy - far from flattering.

I thinkt that everyone looked & behave wonderful at both events. My only thing is with the 1st ladies Dress. Poor thing she had to fight with it in the wind. Not a fan of jacket either, she still looked great.

& She like me once, spring & summer comes. The sleeves are gone. I can't stand having my arms covered during the hot weather. & she has great arms.

Very well stated.

I not sure I like the hair either. But I guess she wanted to do something different with it. For me, it's not awful but not fantastic either. Still, the dress is a winner for me.

I think you saw all that you are going to see of the Cambridges.

The photo op allowed them (mainly Catherine) to become familiar with these type of events (State visits), but notice it wasn't live, it also allows the focus to be on the Queen and Obama, because lets face it...there would be a lot of focus on Catherine, her dress, her tiara. She can get that in Canada. This quite different from Diana and Sarah who were just thrown out there. There is going to be a gradual push for William and Catherine.

I really like Michelle's dress. I would have preferred her hair down though.

The Queen looks nice. It does seem like she wears a lot of white for evening events.

I posted a while back that Edward and Sophie have one of the best deals going in the BRF!

In a few weeks they will travel to the French Riviera as guests of HSH Albert, probably be put up to stay in the magnificent Hotel de Paris if not the Palace itself, dine on haute cuisine by four star chef Alain Ducasse on a beautiful terrace overlooking the Meditarranean, be treated to wonderful firework displays and concerts...all on Prince Albert's dime!

Michelle really brings her "A" game when she dons evening wear...that black off the shoulder gown is SHEER ELEGANT PERFECTION much like the ivory Tom Ford last night...I prefer her in lighter colors to showcase her beautiful skin tone, but why quibble..she looks great!

BTW ZaJa...that photo in your avatar is said to have been JFK's favorite picture of his wife...she looks so gorgeous there, and I never realized she had freckles....
