Thank you, Lumutqueen. I don`t think I put my question clearly. What I meant was more along the lines of how was it decided, for instance, that Charles and Camilla were rather tucked away at the end on their row, but Albert II of Monaco appears to be (so to speak) right next to the action? And how is it determined that the Norwegian Crown Prince and Princess are in the next row, and so on? I investigated the Almanach de Gotha to try and learn about how precedence would be determined for such an event, but didn't get very far ...

Sincere thanks for any information any of you may have!

Thanks again.

Prince Albert, Sheikha Mozah and Lalla Salma were seated closest to front and center because they are reigning monarchs. I'm not sure about the order after that but I think after the monarchs were the crown princely couples and so on.

Thanks, dbarn67: your reply makes sense.

If anyone has further material or information about this sort of protocol, I'd be grateful to see it.

They are seated after the length of reign of ther father/mother. Only the japanese Crown Princely Couple has been given precedence over the others.

Would someone from the Netherlands mind giving us the words (in English) of their National Anthem as they sang it at the Inauguration? I did look it up online and found it interesting and poignant. But, there are many verses. So, what were the actual words/verses that they typically sing? I will appreciate it and say thanks in advance.

Thank you, Lee-Z. That's what I was wondering...which verses. It is a very moving National Anthem...especially when you know the history behind it.
