Close up of Mette-Marit tonight at the Royal Navy Club, it looks like she bringing the golden purse from the spanish state visit, and the same golden shoes.
The last one is when she & Haakon greet the King & Queen. She looks very graceful..

it's not only when they are offering the drinks. Thailand is only the few monarchy who still preserved tradition like this. I remembered seeing pictures of arriving royals when they are on state visit, then, they would be welcomed by a lined up of royal servants kneeling down to the floor. It's still amazes me sometimes.

This has been a most wonderful day! Thank you so much, Jess! (And all the others too, of course!) Such wonderful pictures and it's only getting better and better! What a wonderful event and what a splendid palace. And all those boats on the river! The Thai people definitely know how to throw an impressive party.

As for the train pics: both Mathilde and Maxima look stunning! :)

It called Phuang Malai.:) It is Thailand unique ways of arranging flowers and using them in decorations, which are different from other places. Garlands were traditionally hung in front of windows, thus allowing the aromatic jasmine to waft into the house. If offered to guests, they substitute for words like'Welcome' and the higher the status of the person, the more elaborate the garland. A garland offered to the King, for example, is as intricate as any floor mosaic. From Thaiwave.com "Normally the ladies of the Court spent many hours in arranging flowers like those we see in purple platinum’s amazing pics."

World royalty honour the King

"The prosperity of the country does not rest with any individual, but is the duty of all Thais."
- His Majesty the King

Their Majesties the King and Queen received royal guests at the Italianate 19th century Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall this afternoon, in a grand celebration in Bangkok recognising and honouring His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej as the world's longest reigning monarch.

The diverse royalty -- the emperor of Japan, kings, queens, a sultan, a sheik and royal representatives from 25 nations-- attended the grand ceremony at the marble hall of the palace at Bangkok's Royal Plaza to celebrate the 60th anniversary of His Majesty's accession to the throne.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra spoke at the ceremony. "As we celebrate this anniversary, it is not the length but the accomplishments that is the true legacy of your majesty's reign," he said. Mr Thaksin praised the king's well-known accomplishments in rural development and his "unifying role that has enabled Thailand to move forward over the past 60 years."
In his brief royal address, His Majesty King Bhumibol thanked the Thai people as a whole for their full support to his royally initiated projects and urged all Thais to do their duty as best as they can to strive for the well-being of the country.
"The prosperity of the country does not rest with any individual, but is the duty of all Thais," he said. "As a Thai, I have the same duty, as do all the people in the country, to do their utmost."

Their Majesties then accompanied the royal guests to the Royal Thai Navy Convention Hall to watch a procession of 52 royal barges along the Chao Phraya River, which is the highlight of the jubilee celebration.
On Tuesday, Their Majesties will host a state dinner for the royal guests at the Chakri Throne Hall in the Grand Palace to conclude the formal celebrations, which began last Thursday. -(TNA)
