Britain's Queen Elizabeth II arrives with the President of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, right, at Buckingham Palace in London, Tuesday, March 7, 2006. Silva received a ceremonial welcome from the queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at a central London parade ground and inspected an honor guard during a torrential downpour. He and his wife then joined a carriage procession down the wide Mall to Buckingham Palace, he sitting with the queen in an ornate horse-drawn carriage, and his wife in another carriage with the duke

The Queen looks lovely indeed!

Great to see an incoming State Visit from Brazil, I hope the President of Brazil will also come to Sweden one day. I hope we'll see many great pictures from various events during the visit.

Thanks for all the pictures. I really hope we get to see pictures of the Duchess at the banquet tonight. I do not like the british tradition where only the soverign couple and their guests poses for pictures at the banquet, we go to see the PoW and the Duchess at the Norwegian banquet because then the Norwegian Crown Prince couple was there as well but I wonder how it will be this time..... I think they should pose them all up so we got a good look at the minor royals as well.

I wonder where I shall leave my complaint...

For some reason, both the Queen and her daughter-in-law, the Countess of Wessex wore repeat clothes from Christmas at Sandrigham on 2005. :D :D They are both looks very lovely and suitable in their chosen colour.. :)

on christmas 2005...

I do hope we see HRH Duchess of Cornwall in different jewels tonight ( i would love to see her in the honeycomb tiara and a decent necklace) maybe HM gave her the Family Order as a christmas present?

BeatrixFan 03-07-2006 02:25 PM

She deserves it. She's worked hard and it's nearly been a year since she married Charles. Perfect opportunity as far as I can see.

The Queen looks so elegant. This and the other outfit she wore on St. Davids Day are so old world glamour and make her look so elegant. I love it.

Does anybody what time the Banquet starts and if it has been officially confirmed that the POW and DOC are coming.

MOLEY 03-07-2006 02:49 PM

according to the brazilian embassy website it starts at 20.30.

Princejohnny25 03-07-2006 02:50 PM

The Queen seems to be getting along with the First Lady quite well. I like the First Ladys hat. I wonder if the Queen will wear the Aquariam Parure that the Brazilian government gave her as a gift. She hasnt worn it in years and this would be the best time. Its not a tiara one would normally wear considereing it isnt that great looking and it is really heavy. But I would like to see it still.

So I am guessing that it will start in about two and a half hours.
