I'm sure it will be nice, but it should be glittering and pretty... hopefully there will be an iconic group photograph of the assembled leaders.

Hah no worries that's kinda what I figured but was just making sure it wasn't some other pic you were referring to.Totally agree with you a group photo would be amazing.

Next week's Sovereign Lunch is going global with 20+ international sovereigns expected to be in attendance.

That takes it one step up from the Golden Jubilee celebrations when the guest list was limited to European sovereigns.
This made me go look and I was also able to find 2002 pictures of the Golden Jubilee lunch and the Golden Jubilee Dinner Party for European Crowned Heads at Windsor Castle. There is a picture (Image 6 of 12) of The Queen with Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Queen Sonja and King Harald of Norway and Queen Margrethe of Denmark. Click to view images in the right hand column on this page: The Queen's Golden Jubilee | The Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Unfortunately it appears that although the Crowned Heads are wearing evening dress, there doesn't appear to be a tiara in the bunch. (Guess they didn't want to out-bling each other?) Wonder if it will be the same this year?

Picture 6 is from the dinner right? Hm I so wonder what it will take to see Catherine in a tiara maybe I'm just too impatient

This is from the Golden Jubilee lunch

I fully expect the lunch at Windsor next week to be low key. I think the Queen realises that at a time of hardship for lots of her subjects, the sight of lots of wealthy royals trying to 'out bling' one another at a lavish event at Windsor Castle would simply make them look out of touch. I firmly believe that's why so few British royals go to parties and celebrations on the Continent. Flying off to glamorous royal events to hob nob with other royals while the nation struggles through very tough times just doesn't look good.

The foreign monarchs are invited to two events taking place on March 18th which are constantly mixed up:
During the day, a lunch at Windor Castle hosted by the Queen, which the Cambridges will apparently attend.
In the evening, a dinner at Buckingham palace hosted by the Waleses, which the Cambridges apparently won't attend.

Mademoiselle Lilo 05-10-2012 01:21 PM

So far I think it is the Scandinavians, the Queen of Spain, the King of Bahrain, the new King and Queen of Tonga, and the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

Artemisia 05-10-2012 01:27 PM

:previous:
I think Queen Beatrix, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima are also confirmed to attend both the lunch and the dinner.
It's almost certain former King Constantine of Greece and Queen Anne-Marie, as well as Alexander II of Serbia and Crown Princess Katherine will attend as well.

Mademoiselle Lilo 05-10-2012 01:28 PM

thanks NGalitzine and Artemisia.
i am hoping to see all the rest royals from all over the world its gonna be fun

NGalitzine 05-10-2012 01:28 PM

I was under the impression Windsor was only for reigning sovereigns, at least that is what keeps being reported.

I've seen similar reports too, bit it's unlikely the (former) Greek and Romanian Monarchs, as well as the pretender to Serbian Throne don't attend.
Otherwise, they will probably attend the diner hosted by the Prince of Wales alone.

RobertLeslie 05-10-2012 04:06 PM

Is there a list of which monarchs will be attending the luncheon/dinner hosted by the Prince of Wales

Nope. It's a champagne dinner hosted at BP, the lunch is hosted by HM at Windsor. The dinner looks to be a private event as it's not listed on the engagements list whereas the lunch is.

Lumutqueen 05-10-2012 04:16 PM

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik will be in the UK on the 18th- 19th. Frederik is regent, with his brother preparing for his daughter's christening.
In the Netherlands nothing is on their royal calendar stating whether they're coming or not.
The King and Queen of Norway will attend, as well Carl Gustaf and Silvia.

TM The Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan as well as HM Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands and other Crowned Heads of Europe and abroad.

Great!
Does anyone know if the Sovereign Luncheon will be aired on tv online?

wbenson 05-13-2012 02:26 AM

I doubt it. There could be a pleasant surprise, but I wouldn't expect anything other than some still pictures and maybe tape of arrivals and mingling before or after the meal.

Iluvbertie 05-13-2012 06:01 AM

It is not normal in Britain for things like this to be televised.

We might get to see some arrivals - like the dinner the night before William's wedding - some photos.

carlota 05-13-2012 08:02 AM

which guests have confirmed their attendance?

EDIT: it seems like the queen of spain, and the queen of denmark and prince consort will attend
