Don't even joke NGalitzine! The money spent on that one pair of shoes could feed almost 1,000 of Mswati's people. Ugh.

From the ridiculous to the sublime, the Empress of Japan looks wonderful.

Which one? He has quite a few of them.
He did divorce one (after she was accused of having an affair with one of his ministers) and another one literally fled from the palace.

Evidentally, the royals from everywhere are still bowing or curtsey-ing to one another. I think that's nice.

One can't help but wonder what Queen Beatrix must be feeling knowing that her son is not so far away in a coma. It must preoccupy her thoughts every day.

I feel for her very much and also wonder if that was another contributing factor as to why the Dutch Parliament granted it's permission for her to attend. Perhaps the Queen will be visitng her son, sister in-law and grandchildren while she's in the country.

I think one tried to run away recently, but I suppose with so many wives it can be hard to keep track.

I think it was the one in the horrid shoes we see today.

William and Kate seemed to be enjoying chatting with the King and Queen of Jordan. Didn't Kate live there for a while when she was a child? I'm sure they discussed that.

The "Queen"'s tweets on twitter are particularly amusing today.

No, this particular one is still content to live a life of luxury while thousands of her countrymen starve.
The woman in the dreadful shoes is Inkhosikati LaMbikiza whom he married back in 1986 (she his third wife, but the first one he got to choose - the first two were chosen for him by national councillors and their issue is barred from succeeding to the Throne). She is probably one of his most high-profile wives and mother of his most likely successor - Prince Jabree Dlamini.

Apparently most of the guests have now left Windsor Castle.

Anyone seen any pics of Charles and Camilla? Or are they not there?

Thanks for the updates!
The group photo of monarchs is nice.

She lived in Jordan before with her family (1984-1986).

I didn't see Crown Princess Margareta of Romania among the guests. She should have accompagnied her father, King Mihai I.

Charles and Camilla may not have been present because they are soon to host the Jubilee dinner. If they had been there, it is likely pictures would have surfaced by now, since we already have pictures of other senior royals, including the Cambridges, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew, Beatrice, Eugenie, the Duke of Kent, and others.

It was stated before in one of the press that they had prior commitments during day time so could not be able to make it. I guess pretty much similar to the Princess Royal.

This was lunch for Monarchs; as such, only Monarchs or their representatives (such as Lalla Meryem in place of King of Morocco) were present, plus most members of the British Royal Family. Given the close relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Margareta, I have little doubts she and Prince Radu were invited to the dinner which is to take place in mere hours.

I am sure they were there. The cameras were restricted to specific locations, and my guess is that C&C probbaly did not pass by the cameras.

Agreed they are hosting the dinner tonight, but they are unlikely to be down at BP folding napkins!
