I noticed that William wasn’t wearing glasses while driving last night- he usually does. Perhaps he’s wearing contacts now?

Maybe the invitation was only extended to the key royals (former heads of state, current heads of state and future heads of state)? Otherwise, Carl Philip and Sofia could have represented the king.
But Carl Philip and Sofia also were participating in the State visit, which is why I said the family was busy...

It was the second day of the state visit, so not the state banquet. I'd say as the more minor royals they could have skipped the afternoon and evening activities of the second day.

Black alright but not flash-proof!
Wonder if she feels mortified today?

Andy T, I also wondered if any of Prince Philip's German relatives attended.
I like how regal looking Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark are.

My view is that pictures or videos from inside BP were not released the evening of the party because of political events of the evening.

It was the afternoon the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement was being discussed at Cabinet, and the marathon session lasted from 2pm till past 7pm, with the PM addressing the media shortly before 8pm. That clashed with the c8pm arrival time of the guests at BP. To avoid ending up with potential negative commentary of the royals partying with other royals at a time when the government was potentially teetering on the edge of collapse, I think the decision was taken to restrict media coverage.

IMO, this is precisely why photographers were not allowed to gather outside BP, as they usually do, to photograph arrivals. However, as an acknowledgement of the media interest, they released a picture of C&C at Clarence House, and tipped off some photographers to head to KP to get pictures of the Cambridge and Sussex couples as they left KP. When attending formal events, the Cambridge and Sussex couples are usually driven to BP. In this case, with a view to letting the photographers get better pictures, William and Harry drove themselves, with their wives seated in the front alongside them.

The Palace always plays down visits from the German side of the family. I can understand that in the past this was necessary to respect sensibilities and avoid the press baying about the Saxe-Coburg, Hesse and Baden connections. But surely now it is time to move on. The British Royals are part of a wider European Royal family which, in these dreadful times, could be a powerful example of the links that connect the people of the continent together, and representative of so many other families which cross borders, as a result of increased mobility and emigration.



On a more general note, I so wish the palace would release a full guest list, even after the fact. It's irritating not to be sure who attended and who didn't.



Frederik and Mary certainly do look regal, yet not in the least aloof. Denmark is very fortunate.

I don't see why the guest list needs to be released for a private event. It was not an official engagement.

Vestry's outfit was out there and for the wrong venue but she may have dressed this way to get press. Her competition for attention are royal duchesses, crown princesses and queens - women who wear beautiful gowns and dazzling jewels and who have the media's primary attention. By comparison Vestry is low in the pecking order and a shocking outfit will get her press.

Lady Frederic's dress is awkward. It reminded me of the dress worn by the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Marie Chantal, really, with the selfie? Why did she feel the need to pull a Kardashian move like that? I know Greece's monarchy is no more, but still. And she has given interviews about Meghan. I would have love to have been a fly on the wall for conversations between these two.

I imagine Prince Pavlos is welcome at Buckingham Palace, due to his, and his family's long connection and intimate ties with the BRF..

Marie Chantal [markedly] LESS SO...
