His Royal Highness does seem to enthusiastically embrace the opportunity to addent state visit banquest. (I understand why), but he always gives the impression as though Her Majesty has treated him to it... curious

Will Camilla wear the Delhi Durbar tiara again or will she sport a different one and shock us all? I think the DD has become her trademark tiara but you never can tell.

I don't think the Duchess can be back in time for the State Banquet though, Beatrixfan as i think she still has an engagement in San Francisco with the Prince of Wales today, so she would be still on the air while the State Banquet taking place.

I thought it was one of life's truisms that a lady can never have too many tiaras.

I think an America/England flight would only be about 12 hours? by jet. I wouldn't know as I've never taken a flight from America to England. But, they should have been back in time.

Thats what I thought Layla. I mean, they're not taking the QE2 home are they? They'll be flying. And if the banquet's not until 7 or 8 O'Clock, they might be able to do it.

Re:

Well they would be tired of course, but a good dinner, a few speeches and a bit of a boogie with the Chinese President wouldn't be too much to ask would it?

Bad planning. They should have cut the US short by a day.

Oh that's just an exaggeration, but I don't think anything more than a waltz is called for or accepted at these things!:)

Since the UK is eight hours ahead of the US west coast and the trip from the west coast to Heathrow is around ten hours, there's no way they'll get back today if they leave today. I wonder why their trip overlapped like that - perhaps the Queen didn't want Camilla's headgear to be the main focus of a dinner during a state visit.

Of Course. No State Visit is complete without a grand Hokey-Cokey.

Maybe it wasn't ncecessary for Charles and Camilla to attend. I'm sure there will be more for them to attend.
