Prince Jefri wasn't there. Infact he hasn't been present at major family events for the past few years, including the Crown Prince's wedding in 2004.

The second last paragraph of the article below briefly mentions the circumstances:

Lavish birthday for Brunei ruler

Regional leaders will be among 10,000 guests at a lavish 60th birthday banquet on Saturday for the Sultan of Brunei, one of the world's richest men.

Thousands of schoolchildren lined the streets of the capital Bandar Seri Begawan on Saturday as he arrived in his Rolls-Royce for a troop inspection.

The festivities began early this month and continue until 18 August.

The leaders of the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand and Singapore are among those attending the banquet, the high point of the festivities, at the sultan's Nurul Iman palace. BBC News

Maybe it was awkward for her to be in the same room with and walking next to the other wife.

This is all new for the second wife and she has only recently given birth, quite a lot going on for her in recent months

Here are some links of pictures where the second wife has a bit of a different expression, aka looks happy:

There is a complete gallery of the celebrations and events where you can view all the photos at the infofoto link.

And maybe also she is feeling more than a bit nervous. Everything is new for her. Sitting on the throne, wearing a crown, attending a grand and official function. We should remember that she is just a common woman from Malaysia and not even born royal. So all this must be overwhelming to her.
