I think we might be lucky tonight. Brunei is quite glittery when it comes to their Royals and I wouldn't be suprised if we didn't see a piece of jewellery thats a gift from the Sultan.

Tiara's are normally used at The Lord Mayor's Banquet, the State Opening of Parliament and state receptions for foreign dignitaries. They can be worn for private parties of course, especially if the hosts state it is White Tie.

I would say that it is very possible that Duchess of Cornwall wear a tiara for a state banquet. As we know, Brunei royals have some magnificent jewellery and often wear it for occasions as this one.

Given the current recession, I am not surprised that the banquet is somewhat low-key.

Lovely photos again. Thanks everyone who posted them.

Camilla looks very nice in her floaty cream outfit at the banquet. I hope we get to see close-ups of her and the other ladies so we can see their outfits in detail, and especially so I can see the sparklies the Duchess is wearing. I think there are some serious diamonds there.

banquet dress

I agree. THAT is a really beautiful dress. The scarf looks pink in one of the pictures. Very elegant. Thanks for the pictures.

I also thought the overlay of chiffon was pink, whatever it still looks lovely.

CP Masako looks either excited or very nervous or both: she's flushed and her skin looks a bit too glowy. She looks great, though. It's wonderful to see her, and I really like her pretty pink suit.

I don't understand why they don't wear tiara in both banquet (japan and brunei). And I read in local newspaper that today the POW will arrive in Jakarta today. But the DOC doesn't company her.

POW will visit Yogyakarta, where he's going to meet His Highness the Sultan Hamengkubwono x of Yogyakarta and Her Highness Queen Hemas in the Yogyakarta Royal Palace. POW visit the palace once in 1989 with Diana.

here's some picture from 1989
