She spoke with a writer a few years ago, I can't recall where I read it, either Majesty or perhaps the Telegraph, and denied she still suffered from the illness. The writer described it as a cure.

Kelly, thank you. I really don't know what to think about that -- perhaps the Duchess of Kent meant the absence of active symptoms, perhaps the word "cure" was inaccurate or maybe the initial report I read was inaccurate. I can't remember where I read it but most likely it was either Hello or Majesty. I recall it quite clearly, though, because in the same report they said that Tiggy Legge-Bourke has it also, which accounted for a dramatic weight loss in her as she lived on the restricted diet.

There is a big party being held tonight for his birthday and a lot of Royals are going. It is being held in the London mansion of his friend Paul Channon and is a joint birthday party as Mr. Channon was also 70 years old on 9/10/05. The Daily Mail newspaper said that the Queen,Charles and Camilla and most of the rest of the Royal Family will attend.

There are photographs of the Queen, Phillip, the Duke and Duchess of Kent and Lady Gabriella Windsor at the Duke of Kent's birthday party on Rex Features. Does anyone know how to enlarge and post these here?

Re:

Queen Anne-Marie looks fabulous! The Queen looks quite old sadly. Princess Alexandra rather snazzy in dress and the Duchess of Gloucester......very blue.

ELECTRIC blue. She looks fabulous!

I don't think the camera flash has done Her Majesty any favours in this pic.

Happy b-lated birthday to the Duke of Kent! and many more....

I think The Duchess of Kent truly is a model of how a commoner can become royal and still retain a wonderful sense of humility and grace.

The Duchess of Kent doesn't look happy at all in that picture; I hope that was just an unfortunate photo, although I'm afraid it might not have been.

Who's the man she was with?

HRH THe Duchess of Kent almost looks nun-like with her combination of black-white and the very obvious display of the cross...

It looks like the same dress that she was wearing at the Classical Brit awards (see post 101), but with a different necklace. I wouldn't have thought that a great big cross like that was the most appropriate thing for a birthday party, but then I'm not exactly knowledgeable about fashion.

The Queen's dress is unusual. I would like a front view.

Even today the it is evident that the duchess was a beatiful lady in her younger years, she also seems a very sad person,

On a different note, it seems to me that Princess Michael of Kent has more Jewels and Tiaras than the Duchess, could it be, or is Princess Michael just more ostentatious?

I think the Duke and Duchess sold at least one tiara or maybe an entire parure. It's rumoured that Princess Michael has kept hers intact by replacing the precious stones with fakes and selling the former, but I have no idea if there's any truth to that.

I know that the Duchess of Gloucester probably has more tiaras than either the Duchess of Kent or Princess Michael. I have seen reports that the Duchess of G. has 5 (and possibly 6) with royal origins.

She does seem to have quite a bit of royal jewels compared to some of the other minor members of the royal family.

I think because Queen Mary gave and then left so many to Princess Alice as gifts and in her will. She then in turn passed them on to the current Duchess.

Princess Alexandra only seems to have one tiara and she was born a royal.

Most of the Kent tiaras went to the Duchess of Kent and Princess Michael.

Well, the Kent inheritance had to be split, whereas the current Duke of Gloucester is the only heir to his parents since his brother predeceased both parents and died unmarried. Also, the current Duke was godson and heir of Princess Marie Louise, which is where that amazing diamond, pearl, and sapphire tiara comes from, so he had jewels from more than one source.

I think Princess Alexandra's tiara was bought for her when she married, not inherited from her mother, who was still using her jewels herself at that time.

Wasn't she Princess Helena's (Lenchen) daughter, Maria Louise?
