I'm quite disappointed in both Marie Chantal and Mary's outfits, although Mary's earrings are quite fabulous! Maxima looked fabulous. Of course, Mathilde looked like an angel. From what I could see of the top of Victoria's gown -- we've seen it before -- some type of jeweled criss cross halter top -- not very flattering, but gotta love that amethysts.

It's amusing that so many here should (myself included) critique the attire of those who attended the festivities and yet I'd be most certain that no one present gave it a thought...lol. They all dressed appropriately for a black tie event. Yes, even MC.

Let personal taste not insit that some dresses worn, were ill suited for the evening.

God love Maxima for her vivacious approach to style!

The Prince of Wales's 60th birthday
13th November 2008
It has been reported in various newspapers that The Duchess of Cornwall has bought The Prince of Wales 60 presents for his 60th birthday. This is not true.

King Abdullah and Queen Rania are on page 1 of this Rex Features link. 5 rows down, 3 in.
Note that Rex is adding to this pictorial so the images change position as more are included.

Well, if it has been true but she wanted to keep things private on issuing such a statement she could have always bought one or two more presents. thus it is definately not true that she bought 60 gifts, but 61.... Who cares anyway besides those who want to thro mud on her for over-spending?

I am more then disappointed...
I mean:
Photos of Royals leaving their hotels (or wherever they stayed), photos of Royals in cars... wow.
I expected at least a short red carpet or pictures from the hallway inside... like they did during the birthdays of King Harald or Willem-Alexander.
Just some better pictures of the Royals, and the Ladies' dresses,would have been nice.

I hope for a Group Picture....

Indeed, we have only seen some pictures of royals in the cars so we can only see their faces, but also we have seen some inside the Palace som maybe later it will appear some other nice photos where we can see all the details. Although the big party is going to be today isn't it? Has anyone know if Kate and Chelsy will be there?

Don't like Mary's dress at all and that hairstyle doesn't fit her IMO. I never favored the 1930s/40s look on Mary. A simple but elegant hairstyle suits her better. So far, I like Letizia's make-up. Too bad we can't see her gown. As for Maxima, I always knew she would wear this kind of dress. It seems that the tube, layered style of dress is her favorite. Hopefully the BRF would release the pictures. They should know that they can benefit from this. People would want to know the CPss's gowns.

Jo, it seems that you so much like the idea of the 60 birthday gifts......anyhow, i´m sure she has given him the right present(s).

This is how it always done by the Windsors. No photographers inside as it is a private party. We can be lucky that the guests arrived in cars and not in a bus. For example at the Golden Wedding oif the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh there was a big Ball at Windsor CAstle. But the guests arrived in a bus and all you got was a few photos from the guests when the left the bus and walked to the entrance of the Castle. At Buckingham Palace you would probably not even get this photos as the don't let photographers into the Quadrangle.

Queen pays tribute to son Charles on Yahoo!7 Video

Queen's tribute to her son. It's quite unusual.
