Similarly, there are no pictures (as of now) of Prince Edward who was also supposed to be there.

Charles and Camilla were to attend but had to change their plans because their plane arrived later then scheduled (because of fog).

Did Zara attend? and was she torn between being a hostess and guest?

Check the gallery from Getty; there are now plenty of pictures of Her Majesty.
And another gallery from Zimbio.

I don't think she did; there would have been pictures of her by now.

I thought I saw a glimpse of Beatrice somewhere, but not Sophie.
Hopefully, there'll be more pictures soon.

One of the ladies in the pictures looked like Princess Alexandra too (hair, clothing style, profile-wise).

I dont like the Duchess of Cambridge's dress....too 60's for my liking in my mind it would be something an old woman would wear.

Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor At Queen's Olympic reception The Duchess of Cambridge revealed she's learning to ride & Para-equestrian rider Lee Pearson offered lessons!

One well-known Olympian Zara Phillips who won a team silver in the Olympic equestrian competition was at the reception hosted by The Queen.

Oh wow! I think it's fantastic that Kate is learning to ride, and I guess that puts to rest the rumor that she's allergic to horses. If she takes to it, she'll certainly get more enjoyment out of time at Balmoral, plus she'd be able to have a lot of fun with the rest of the Royal family.

That indeed will put the unfortunate rumour to rest.
This does surprise me somewhat because I always thought Kate could ride. Although come to think about it, don't know why I got the impression though.

I would be surprised if so, the AP does a disappointing job in covering these events IMO. They only release pictures of the very senior members of the family, one can be happy with one pic of Anne, Sophie or Edward, the rest will be ignored. Same with state banquets and I wonder why. It makes following such events pretty dull. Of course the main coverage should be on the Queen, Charles & Camilla and Kate & Will, but a few pics of the York girls, Gloucesters and Kents wouldn't hurt. So different with these affairs regarding the Danish royal family where one can always spot every member of the family who's present. Sorry for the rant.

I know what you mean, Dierna23. I too wish all members of the royal family could be pictured at the State Banquets.

Catherine is allergic to horses. Lee Pearson, an eventer in the Paralympic Dressage Team, said that Sophie told him last night that Catherine is allergic to horses.

Quote:
Among those she spoke to was Lee Pearson, an equestrian Paralympian. "[Kate] said she was learning to ride. I said, 'If you ever want a dressage lesson, come up to Staffordshire,' " he told The Times. He added, "The Countess of Wessex said, 'Kate is allergic to horses.' I said, 'So am I – but antihistamines are wonderful.' "
Source @ People.com

It's a shame there aren't many photos of the others at this event. Of course with Catherine there, everyone else is lucky if they get one photo. I am not a fan of Catherine's dress for the event, but the Queen looks lovely as always. Such a bright smile from that lady!
