I read, the royals attending the banquet were The Queen & Prince Philip; The Duke of Kent and his sister Princess Alexandra and The Duke & Duchess of Gloucester.
As well as The Duke of York and The Earl and Countess of Wessex. Sophie was on the Queen's table as the senior Royal lady as Anne and Camilla were absent.

There will soon be some simple explanation for why we are wrong (and not putting a negative angle on our expert searching :))
I was also wondering why Charles has not been seen for sometime.

Charles and Camilla might attend the funeral of the Duke of Marborough this Friday before flying to Columbia.

I don't think there are any videos of the banquet. Sophie is near the Queen as a senior royal lady was needed so she took the place of Camilla. She used to do that before Camilla married Charles as prior to that Sophie was ahead of Anne in seniority, until it was changed by the Queen when Camilla joined the family.

Yeah, if William & Catherine attended, Catherine would be sitting next to the President and The Queen.

Yes and Andrew wouldn't be at the top table either.

If the royals posed like they used to, you would be able to see very clear pictures of everyone. Senior members of the royal family used to pose for pictures with The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh and the Heads of State at the State Banquets. They don't do it anymore but hopefully they will return to doing so in the next reign.

I think the royal YouTube site will publish the speeches.

It's Princess Michael in that picture. She and her husband might not have been mentioned as attending but I guarantee that when the names are published of who attended in the court circular they will be on it because that is a clear picture of her and the dress she's wearing I've seen her in a few times before as well.

That is definitely Sophie seated near the Queen. It's the same dress she wore to Princess Madeleine's wedding last year.

Not necessarily - last year there was an official event that clearly had pictures of Andrew attending and yet he wasn't listed in the CC. All the rest of the family were mentioned but he wasn't.

That 'change' only ever affected private events when only the females were present.

I like that the Cambridge's used the Scottish State Coach yesterday. Like it was a nod to Scotland staying in the UK.

I think with the chance of bad weather they went with the covered carriages. The Aussie and the new Diamond Jubilee coach were used by Philip and the Queen, which makes sense since they are the newest and most smooth ride. The ride in the Scottish might not be too bad since that is one the Queen and Philip used for the Cambridges wedding. The worst carriage for ride is apparent the gold state coach that they used at coronations. Maybe that's why isn't wasn't hauled out for the diamond jubilee.

The royal couple, the presidential couple and all the other guests looked abfab at the State Banquet. The venue however is arch-ugly. I know that taste is in the eye of the beholder and no insult intended, but all that frou-frou here and frou-frou there, the furniture shattered over the place, the carpets here and the carpets there and that organ in the banqueting hall. No..., when I think about the usual venues of the other European monarchies, then the banqueting hall at Buckingham Palace is really the ugliest in style and interior.

The British however also have one of the most beautiful and impressive banqueting halls (St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle). That loooong table is impressively amazing. Only minus there are the hideous lampshades on the immense candelabras, seems unique, one does not see these lampshades outside the UK (real candles are preferred).



I think Buckingham Palace would really get a revamp when a skillful hand re-decorates the palace ("Less is more") and is able to remove the pile of antique. After all: one fantastic pendule with two vases on a table in a large room attracts all attention. Four fantastic pendules with two vases each in one room, fighting for attention with three sofas, four side-tables, two pianos, a chamber-screen and two sculptures are 'drowning' in a cluttered and congested room. Empty those rooms! Store the items in depôts and rotate! Other monarchies do and it looks so much better. Just an advice.

I believe for a state visit you get to pick your venue of BP or Windsor. They might be a bit sensitive after the fire at Windsor to use real candles on a table. BP hasn't be redecorated since Edward VII.
