DOH! You are right. I missed his (hard to do, but I did). Time to put new contacts in as my eyes must be going!

If you read back through the thread you will find one of the first pictures of of the Countess of Wessex and you can see Prince and Princess Michael of Kent in the Rex Features photos.

From the car photos I can say all the ladies certainly look lovely with their hair and makeup but Princess Maxima really stands out to me. WOW! She looks stunning

I think it's a pity that BP isn't more forthcoming regarding photo opportunities!

On second thought, why even bother sending a duty invitation to all these foreign royals and dignitaries and then do your best to hide them away when they actually get there?

As someone said, the Brits are not interested in other royalty than their own and here's a quote from the BBC to prove it:

"Among the foreign royals who made the trip to London were ..(.....) and King Constantine of Greece".

(in case someone missed the point: ex-king Constantine of the Hellenes has lived in London for 33 years and is a close friend of the birthday boy!)

Now now lets not speak for all Brits
But i agree a lot of the media haven't a clue. I would happily do the royal reporting for them!
About King Constantine. Any chance they meant he made the trip from Inner London to Central London?

Still not seen Prince Andrew and his girls; Zara, Lord Linley and Serena; Duke of Kent; Lady Helen; other Gloucester kids (Noticed Lady Rose with her parents in their car) Freddie and Ella Windsor or Princess Alexandra's children. Surely they can't all have not attended. Fingers crossed for more pics.

Does anybody know how these parties work logistically? For instance, does Buckingham Palace send cars to the various hotels for everybody or does each royal couple hire their own? Do the Crown Prince Couples travel with hairdressers and make-up people? Do they all stay at the same hotel or are they put up in a palace somewhere? Do they fly commercially? It seems like quite a feat to have all of these royals show up on the same night in the same location, all dressed to the nines, in chauffeured vehicles.

I also think that Mathilde, especially, looks just angelic tonight.

I have to say that everyone looks simply wonderful! What a tribute for Charles, all these royals coming together to celebrate his birthday. I love Camilla's jewels, Maxima as usual is amazing, and Mary is really one of the most delicate beautifies I've ever seen. Mathilde is, as always, elegant and flawless. The only low point--no full lenght pictures. I'd love to see which necklace Princess Victoria is wearing!

Is it me or does she look a lot like Dana Delaney/Katherine on Desperate Housewives?

I had a 'hunch' Mary would wear a hairstyle reminiscent of the 1930's/40's, and it is simply beautiful.

The earrings are superbly designed and sit nicely on the ear. She understands that diamond earrings, alone, are all that's needed in the way of jewellery.

The lacework on the upper bodice of her cocktail dress is entirely delectable! it adds an almost gothic like femininity which is quite sensual and alluring. Especially against her cream complexion. HRH has a striking neck and shoulder line so to cover such attributes, would be a great injustice

What is up with the Countess of Wessex's appearance? She doesn't even look as if she's going to the same party as Máxima, Mary, Mathilde and the others. Way to underdressed with no hair-do or make-up. Where's the glamour?

^^Keep in mind that the Queen is said to love Sophie so much because she is so understated. That is her niche within the family, the understatedly beautiful wife of the youngest son of the Queen. They didn't want another Diana, all glamour and sparkle, and Sophie seems content not to be that, instead being simple and private, with a bright smile when necessary, but not lavish.

you are correct, she looks terrible but like randomlykeira said the queen does not want another Diane, she does not want to be overshadow by a pprincess, she want to be the only one, glamorous and love for the people.
