Having seen the speed and vigour some people put into their waltzing, the best thing to do is sit it out!

Wel, meeting with one president in the past week is probably enough to expect of them!

And here are some more from Day 1 (arrival and welcoming ceremony), from Polfoto and Getty. The Princess Royal was the one who greeted the Presidential couple at the airport. I find the picture of the Queen reading that note very cute and a bit funny. I wonder what it said! :) Does anyone know how old (or if it is) the Princess Royal's outfit is, and if/when she has worn it before?

I don't believe the Princess Royal has purchased any new clothing for at least 15 years. I would peg that ensemble at around 1987..... :-D

I was looking on getty and what is sad is that she does have some nice clothes. I don't know why she chooses to wear the oldest and Imo the ugliest she has.
She is also president of U.K. fashion exports go figure.

One nice thing about her (besides that she is a very, if dour, hard worker) is that she has kept her figure beautifully over the years.

What is that "hat" on Princess Anne's head? She looks like she is about to go fly fishing!

That color combination can work. Diana did it and it came off superb. Anne's outfit is ill-fitting and frumpy.

Her Majesty looked really elegant, and glrorious both with the red outfit for the Welcoming Ceremony and in the dress for the State Banquet, that the dress The Queen ahd worn once on her Golden Jubilee Tour to Canada in October 2002.Its a pity that not seeing many Royals at the Banquet, i just saw The Duke of Kent and Princess Michael of Kent.Thanks everyone for pics.

Her Majesty does look wonderful. The dress is really complimentary, with the almost jacket-like overlay. I wonder why the evening bag is such a different colour, I don't know if the combination suits Her Majesty, seems a little un-matching.

I'm ever so glad that Her Majesty and His Royal Highness are wearing the Order of the Garter, not that they've ever recieved Chinese awards (thank goodness), but sometimes Her Majesty decides not to wear an order at all, but am so glad Her Majesty showed the Chinese how a Head of State and Sovereign should look.
