Luncheon and banquet for foreign monarchs - 18 May 2012

Bahrain despot says Yes to the Queen’s Jubilee lunch invitation
Quote:
The King of Bahrain has given the Queen a political headache by accepting her invitation to attend her Diamond Jubilee lunch at Windsor Castle next month. The decision will anger human rights groups opposed to his bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. As a matter of royal protocol, the Queen was obliged to invite the king, along with other crowned heads from around the world, to her celebratory lunch on May 18, as revealed by The Mail on Sunday three weeks ago. While some may have hoped the king, Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, would decline the invitation to spare the Queen embarrassment, sources have now confirmed that he has formally accepted.

Thanks for the information, lucien.
Looks like Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee celebrations are going to be truly unforgettable.

k well that's it looks like it for today. So we have our first ever banquet on the 18th that the Duke and Duchess along with Prince Harry will attend. Royals from around the world will also be attending. k I'm going out for dinner and drinks had a rough day, I'll be back later

For those who missed the article the first time around that I posted it.
Windsor | Areas | Windsor News | WindsorExpress | Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set to attend Windsor Castle banquet

Only thing that I find strange that is it's going to be done at Windsor Castle and not BP. Hope we get pix.

Thanks for the coverage, ghost night, and go out and have a couple of drinks - you deserve them! Something tells me that since this is a banquet lunch, royalty won't be wearing tiaras. They don't normally wear the headgear for daytime events, unless it's for a wedding and the reception afterward.

Thnx Baroness I shall go and enjoy, I'll be back at it Thursday night trying to find out times and stuff for Friday's gala.

Personally I think she will wear the tiara.
I doubt it will be a tiara event. By the looks of it, the banquet is going to be a black-tie event.
British royals usually (and even then not always) wear tiaras only during white-tie events.

The article notes it's going to be a lunch banquet. I'm guessing no tiaras.

On the 18th the Queen is hosting a lunch for the "world royals" at Windsor Castle. But I am sure that I read somewhere (here?) that Prince Charles is hosting a dinner but in London for the same group as well.

Found it!

By KATIE NICHOLL and JONATHAN PETRE
The Queen has risked an international outcry by inviting the King of Bahrain to a Diamond Jubilee banquet despite widespread criticism of his bloody and repressive regime.
The English-educated Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa is on the guest list for a lunch hosted by the Queen in May at Windsor Castle. He is also thought to be among those invited to a champagne dinner given by Prince Charles the same evening at Buckingham Palace.

Don't know if the Cambridges are attending the evening do.

The event itself, the lunch is listed as an engagement for HM and The Duke alone in the future engagements. The dinner hosted by Charles is not mentioned and obviously a private event then.

I think that was a reference to Philip and Anne at the barbeque in the 1969 film "Royal Family." It was a family BBQ at Balmoral.

yes that was exactly the reference... (I actually was looking for the picture to attach) sorry I was being sarcastic (adding smilies is harder from my ipad) I wanted a tiara event... and instead we are getting lunch. I'm sure it will be nice, but it should be glittering and pretty... hopefully there will be an iconic group photograph of the assembled leaders.
