Re: Duchess Kate at Diplomatic Reception

The Queen. Meghan and Harry didn't attend, they were at the annual Christmas carol service for his friend who died in a car accident at 18. Sorry his name is so difficult to spell, I would have to look it up.

The Queen looks disturbed in this shot.  I wonder how she really feels about Camilla (her presence always makes me think of Diana), we will never really know. Any guesses are simply speculation, even though each of us has an opinion. 

 


 

 

 

The Duchess of Cornwall was resplendent in an oyster coloured satin evening coat, which she wore over a floor-length gown

Re: Duchess Kate at Diplomatic Reception

Love Camilla’s outfits, this one is really spectacular.

The Queen is lovely as is Kate, as always. Love seeing all that bling and glamour. 

 

The Queen often has a sour look on her face when she is near Charles and Camilla, like she is disgusted with them.  She seems not happy with Charles especially.

Re: Duchess Kate at Diplomatic Reception

@phoenixbrd I noticed that in the picture too lol. Maybe she was just tired. All the decades of putting on a face in public for all these functions must be tiring.  At this point she probably just puts on her regular Liz face and says the heck with it. After reading what someone just said about the Queen saying that protocol is rubbish, well I believe she said that and that she's just tired of it at this point.

@lmt

 

Beautiful, elegant gowns.

 

Kate has a sweetness about her face...and always looks regal.

 

The queen's gown is stunning.  Camilla knows how to dress, too. 

 

The tiara...just wow.  I wonder if wearing something so special ever gets old?

 

Thanks for posting...seeing them all dressed up NEVER gets old.

Re: Duchess Kate at Diplomatic Reception

What is with the Queen and her purse?

Besides that everyone looks "regal"
