We had a chance to watch 'We are most amused' this morning and I can see why Charles thought it was so funny. John Cleese was great, although he did go on a little too much playing the doddery old fool. It was great when he said 'Happy Birthday Prince', made out he had forgotten who, looked to his assistants and then said 'Charles you old fool'. So many really funny remarks by him. Andrew Sachs was made very welcome in the second half. Omid Djalili is a comic genius, as were most of the turns

Bill Bailey hilarious, as was Robin Williams, Eric Idle, the Royal Ballet, Kings Troop too many to mention really. Probably an evening enjoyed best by the older generation or those with the typically British sense of Goon Show/Life of Brian/Fawlty Towers humour!

Great pics of the guests arriving at last night's party on Rex Features. It was good to see Zara, Helen Taylor and Freddie and Ella Windsor at this one as they didn't seem to have attended the Concert at Buckingham Palace. Perhaps they thought this one looked more fun! Both Zara and Ella were looking very glamorous and Sophie's dress was very pretty also.

Thanks for the clarification,Ayvee!Although I still can't see Pavlos in the car.To be honest,it clicked my mind that Pavlos and MC might have had a fight during that day,that's why I thought she looked like that and was accompanied by Nikolaos.But nothing like that has happened.Anyway,about Mary's and MC's dresses,I would like to comment that black lace is the ultimate trend this winter,but unfortunately,they didn't make the best choices...
Oh,and something else:Has Queen Rania attended?I thought she hasn't.

There are no pics of Kate or Chelsey arriving at the concert at BP or last night's party so they don't appear to have attended these events.

And here is a link Rex Features - Photographic press agency and picture library

Interesting to see also Laura Parker-Bowles, Andrew Parker & wife.

I'm surprised Beatrice was there but not Eugenie. Perhaps, Eugenie has school?

There are some people wondering that some royals went to one party and another lot went to another. The first party was given by the Queen and she invited the people she wanted at her son´s birthday celebration, the second was given by the Duchess of Cornwall for her husband and she invited the people she wanted to some went to both because they were invited to both. That´s the way it goes.

What can I say about royals on the gala event?

I expect much more and better photos specially from this event...
Even group photo wasn't released.
I expect wonderful fashion but maybe with the exception of few ladies or not I don't saw nothing good.
Only jewels looks fantastic.

Mathilde maybe other colour of her gown.
Victoria again.
Mary idea was good but in practice it doesn't work.
Letizia - hard to say. The same about Silvia, Sonja...
Maxima should do better hairdo.

Photos from Nov 15 looks better.

Agree! Dresswise Mary as well as Marie Chantell were out of
character, IMHO. I'm not really into the fashion side of CP Mary,
but I've never seen anything like it. Wonder if they did this goth-stunt
on purpose?

Another thing: There's very little in the public domain about the event
at BP on Thursday evening. There's no guest list, in fact we don't even know the number of guests!
The BBC said that there were about 400 "European royalty,
friends and members of his chariable organisations. Other reports
mentioned something in the neighbourhood of 170 guests.

How this party given by HM can be perceived as "private" is a riddle
to me! It seems to have all the ingredients of an official "we're-obliged-to-invite-these-people-and-now-there-is-an-opportunity" event.

This is probably none of my Danish business, but I just don't get it!

RE: the whole Monaco absence -
QE II always seemed to welcome Princess Grace and Rainier when both were still alive.
Albert - I don't know, but I do remember an event of not too many years ago when Caroline and Ernst were invited - maybe a Jubilee or royal birthday - and everyone remarked on the extremely low curtsey which Caroline gave to the Queen.
And seeing how Ernst once figured in the list of succession to the British throne, I do not understand why they were not there -
As for other German royalty, I feel that the House of Windsor has always kept a long-standing distance (since World War II) away from German royalty.

Besides this was a private event having photographers pacing out in front of the hotel or wherever these royals were when the photos were captured is a little irritating possibly. Back when W-A had his private 40th bash I don't remember these types of photos being taken of guests leaving to go to the party. Maybe W-A was expecting more privacy for such an event. Who knows! I'm just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.
In the pic he looked friendly enough
