Now that better pictures are available, the Duchess is definitely wearing the Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara; I was a bit confused because in some pictures the tiara looked spikey, almost like the Queen's GoGB tiara.

Prince Andrew is there as well; you can see him in this picture.

Yeah, Camilla is wearing The Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara. She seems to stick with this tiara and The Delhi Durbar Tiara.

But where is Prince PHilip? I know that he was pictured prior to the banquet but I cant see him at the table or in this picture. Anyone else spot him here?

I don't think he actually stayed for the dinner. The Duke posed for official pictures alongside the Amir and the Queen, and then probably retired. Prince Charles appears to be seated where, if present, Prince Philip would have normally sat. This picture offers a pretty good view of the table (both sides) and I'm pretty sure the Duke of Edinburgh isn't there.

At Windsor the Duke is always seated on the other side of the table :

Sophie is indeed there (is she wearing her wedding tiara?) but I still can't find any traces of the Duke of Edinburgh on either side of the table.

A lot of people there. Anyone know which members of the BRF normally attend state dinners?

I think Prince Philip is sitting on the other side of the table at this Banquet. At Buckingham Palace he usually sit two seats from The Queen.

There isn't really a template; whoever the Queen invites and/or is available can attend. It also depends on who the state dinner is in honour of; for instance, the Duke of York frequents dinners in honour of Arab and Asian diplomats (he has apparantely extensive connections there due to his former role). Typically, it is most usual to see the Gloucesters and the Wessexes, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent... Quite often, several of the Queen's Women of the Bedchamber attend too.

The table pieces are very nice but how on earth do you see the person sitting on the other side from you?

The Queen introduces the Head of State to members of her family before they make their way to the Banquet as well.

In formal banqueting, it isn't necessary as you should not speak across the table.

I think this some new tiara for Sophie
This tiara looks more bigger than her wedding tiara I'm glad that Queen gives Sophie new tiara to wear, but I hope to see it pictures or some footages with better view
