nice video altogether..
but IIRC, during the previous State visits, other than the royal who escorts the guest from hotel/airport, there used to be some other royals in the welcome line-up with the Queen..No one turned up today, other than Andrew, who appears to have escorted The Prez..

And somehow I dont like like BP/Horse Guards receptions and banquets..they are never are grand as the ones in Windsor Castle..JMO..

Edward was with them when they went around the royal collection in Buckingham Palace. I think it just depends if people are free or not.

I would expect the State Banquet to be tonight. Most senior royals will attend.

I think Charles & Camilla wil be unable to join as they are already in India, or on their way there.

Thank you. Do you think The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend? Maybe The Queen have awarded The Duchess with the Royal Family Order.

Do we know anything about Gifts?

They have been confirmed as not attending. RFO has not reportedly been awarded to Catherine.

Molly2101 11-05-2013 02:09 PM

I definitely do not think Catherine should get the RFO yet as she has not done enough to represent the Queen I feel. Others may of course feel differently.

So no Charles or Camilla this evening? That's a shame.
