Absent Friends.

The Bhutanese Royal family are`nt the only absentees. The Cambodian Royal family is not represented and given that several deposed Monarchs are in attendance, it`s surprising to learn that former King Guyanendra of Nepal is absent, the UK and Nepal are long standing allies after all. Perhaps they are being represented by their diplomats in London? I am personally disappointed that neither the Empress Farah Diba or Crown Prince of Iran, appear to have been invited. The late Shah was a great friend of the UK and paid a state visit to our country, in the mid-70`s. His wife has endured her 30+ years in exile with great dignity and their son is a credit to his memory.

It was mentioned somewhere earlier in this thread that Buckingham palace said that all the world's monarchs were invited, so I am assuming that members of the Bhutanese and Cambodian families simply decided not to attend for whatever reasons. That may well be the case for Empress Farah and the Nepalese as well.

Didn't see any pics of her. Maybe she decided to spend the night with Mabel and the girls.

According to Emperor Akihito himself, he and King Albert of Belgium are the only two royals who attended both the coronation and today's events. Prince Akihito, age 19, represented Emperor Showa, while Prince Albert, age 18, stood in for King Baudouin.

There are no pictures of either, so I'd assume they didn't. They weren't the only royals to miss the banquet; Queen Beatrix and several others weren't anywhere to be seen as well. Of course, it may just be there are no pictures available.

How wonderful to see William and Catherine FINALLY in pictures with other royals and not people like Beckham and such low. He will be king one day and it is important he and his wife get to know the other royals. I think they all look wonderful and so happy and relaxed with each other. Fabulous pictures of them all.

Does anyone know if the Cambridges, Harry, and the York girls attended the evening dinner? I'd love to see pictures if they did. They all looked fabulous this afternoon -- Granny must have been very proud.

They were scheduled to attend the luncheon only; since there are no pictures of them at the dinner, it's safe to assume there was no last-minute change of plans.
All the younger royals - William, Kate, Harry, Beatrice and Eugenie - did a very good job for the day reception; I am sure Her Majesty is very proud of her grandchildren.
