I see that the royal family is wearing mourning -- very appropriate. I'm wondering what they will do for the gala dinner this evening?

They are in mourning. Did'n't you know that their beloved dear aunt has just passed away peacefully in her sleep yesterday?

I suspect it will be business as usual. The royal ladies will probably be conservatively dressed, but I suspect the state dinner will be held as usual.
