Are these the royals that give Jewelery as gifts? If they are Camilla could use a beautiful Parure. ;)
Any word where the banquet will be BP or Windsor? :flowers:

If they're staying at Windsor, I would imagine at Windsor.

Expect a fair amount of bling on display.

Queen rolls out red carpet for emir of Qatar's state visit | UK news | The Guardian

It is a sign of special favour when the Queen hosts VIP guests in her beloved Windsor Castle rather than over the shop at Buckingham Palace, or so it is whispered. So there is delight in the entourage of the emir of Qatar, starting a state visit to Britain tomorrow, that he is staying in the royal borough rather than central London.

Thanks for the photos!
It is surprising that Emir of Qatar and his wife are not greeted by a member of the British royal family. I am looking forward to seeing Sheikha Mozah wearing a couture gown and impressive jewellery.

Lumutqueen 10-26-2010 03:48 AM

They probably weren't met by anyone because the Official Visit starts tommorow, which I cannot wait for.
Hope we don't see any green. ;)

The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani is greeted by Queen Elizabeth II on October 26, 2010 in Windsor, England. The Sheikh is on a two day State visit to the UK, the first since his last in 1985, which is seen as important in strengthening already strongly established business links with one of the Gulf States most financially powerful nations.

The visit to the Royal Military Academy would be a perfect event for the Princes to attend.
