It sounds like there isn´t going to be any State dinner held during this statevisit, that isn´t so ususal is it?

Boris 03-21-2010 12:03 PM

Brazil's President Lula da Silva insists even during state visits abroad on attending royal white tie gala dinners wearing only a business suit and tie...

It's not just his personal style though. When King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia paid their first state visit to Brazil in 1984, there was no white tie / tiara banquet either.

It remains to be seen how 'informal' the three evening occasions during this state visit will turn out to be.

Is there any video where we can hear the Queen speaking portuguese? I'm so curious about the accent...

We often (always) make comments of the royal ladies outfits, but I have to say the King looks great in these pictures... very elegant in the blue/grey suit without tie, and the black suite with tie :smile:

That may be the case, but when the President visited the UK a few years ago, he got the white tie out for the state dinner at Buckingham Palace.

No he didn't wore white tie. He simple wore his usual suit.

The same on his State Visits to Sweden, Denmar and Norway a few years ago. Inm one of the countries he even wore the Order over the suit.

What a pity, no tiara! She does look gorgeous and nice!

Last night, The King and Queen offered a black tie dinner at the Hotel Tivoli in Sao Paulo - so there was a more glamorous evening function with long dress during this state visit after all:
