No she isn't wearing the collar, she is wearing it on the red bow.

Couple of thoughts after seeing the speeches:
Big winner of the night is Prince Harry - he is looking good!!
It's funny that King Felipe sitting down is almost as tall as The Queen standing up.
The King's speech was a little long. This is the first time I've heard him speak English and it's not as fine tuned as I would have expected.
The room is decorated beautifully.

I thought the King's English was near perfect which is pretty amazing given how nerve-wracking it must be to speak in a 2nd language in front of that crowd. IMO he made as many minor mistakes/stumbles as the Queen did in her speech.
Didn't predict any of those tiara choices tbh! Nice necklace on Kate but have to say when she walked in I thought the dress looked horrendous, I'll wait for pictures to judge lol!
Interesting that the Queen mentioned 'difference' in reference to Gibraltar. Also I hadn't realised Juan Carlos was the first foreign monarch to address both houses of parliament, I kept reading it was important to the Spanish that Felipe do so but hadn't realised the history behind it.
I liked Felipe acknowledging the extra turnout in royal attendance, nice touch!

Thanks, I see it now. Maybe the collar was too heavy for her to wear ? Anyway, is there a link to a close-up picture where we can actually see the insignia ?

I think she used roughly the same words back in 1986 when King Juan Carlos visited her and she also spoke about "differences". In other words, in 31 years, no meaningful progress has been made really !

Is this the first time she's worn Diana's personal jewelry (other than the engagement ring)?

Good question... the Lover's Knot tiara was on loan to Diana, but in terms of personal jewels.... this might be the first time other than her engagement ring.

Some information from me:
The footman behind the Queen is Barry Mitford, HM's second most important butler, he is one of her two Pages of the Backstairs.

The other Page of the Backstairs is Paul Whybrew (known as "Big Paul"), HM's most important butler. He was the one who starred alongside the Queen in the James Bond thing during the Olympics in 2012. He is never present at State Banquets.

Prince Philip also has two Pages of the Backstairs - Stephen Niedojadlo and William Henderson.

I thought I'd heard it said that King Felipe speaks perfect English. He clearly doesn't, which is fine, I was just surprised in listening to the end of his speech.
