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.
Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Sophie Rhys-Jones, Countess of Wessex take part in a carriage procession along the Mall to Buckingham Palace where they will enjoy lunch during their State Visit to the UK on March 7, 2006 in London, England.

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...

and from today...

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?
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.

according to the brazilian embassy website it starts at 20.30.
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.

Well, it's 8.30. The first pics should come through soon. I love Camilla in the Durbar, but I hope she'll wear a different tiara. Has the Queen got any Brazillian honours she'll be wearing?
To answer my own question, the Queen was awarded the Grand Collar of the Order of the Southern Cross in 1968. But it changed from Imperial Order to National Order so I don't know if it still stands. If it does, the Queen will be wearing a light blue sash.
A light blue sash goes perfectly with aquariem jewelry. Little observation. I cant wait until we see all the jewels.
HRH duchess is wearing the honeycomb tiara wow!!!
HM is in white and the brazilian aquamarine suite just saw it on bbc news 24
Getty has 2 pics available so far but im not that technically minded to post them
I was right about the Aquariem set. I cant wait to see her in the honeycomb. Wow, the Queen has already loaned her two different tiara from the royal collection in such a short time. She has never done that before.
O god, I hope she is not wearing the same dress as the norwegian visit.
In the car the hair does look wierd. I will judge everything completly when she is at the banquet posing.
