Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee --Royal's from around the world Come out to Celebrate!!

 One of the largest gatherings of Heads of State gathered recently to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the luncheon was held in St. George's Hall (So Overwhelming that I just a short 4 weeks ago walked in St. George's hall) at Windsor Castle. Monarchs from twenty six countries gathered to Toast the Queen on her magnificent 60 years on the throne!!
 Here is the Queen greeting Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, it was written that Queen Beatrix was very open and animated at her greeting the queen, flinging her arms open wide for a hug and a kiss.
 Prince Albert and his Bride Princess Charlene, they are  also newlyweds, getting married just 2 months after Will and Kate.  Princess Charlene delivering a low curtsy!!I doubt I could curtsy that low in that tight skirt...who am I kidding, doubt I could in anything I would wear!!!Must take practice!!
The  Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate always the center of attention wore a  1300.00 pound custom made pale pink Dress by one of her favorite designers Emilia Wickstead,  accessorized by Prada shoes and Bag.
 Here they are chatting away with the King Abdullah of Jordan and his wife Queen Rania.
 Here is Prince Andrew's daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie talking with Princess Sabeeka, the wife of King Hamad Al Khalifa of Bahrain.
 The Queen with her ubiquitous Purse!!!I read she carries this as a way of signaling her Ladies in Waiting....like when she moves in from one arm to the other, she wants to leave.....Here she is talking with the Ex-King of Greece and his wife Anne-Marie...the Monarchy in Greece was abolished in 1973.
 I love this lighthearted pic of the two brothers laughing at something....
 Just a few days before the luncheon, William and Harry participated in a Polo match, Kate was there to award the prizes and a celebratory kiss to her brother in law and her husband!!Here they are with there puppy Lupo. Kate wore a printed turquoise dress from one of her favorite labels, Libelula and beige cork wedge shoes by Stuart Weitzman.
And if anyone MISSED this stunning dress...Here it is....William and Kate attended a function at Royal Albert Music hall and everyone standing in the vicinity heard everyone gasp "WOW". The Emerald Green(looks more Turquoise to me) Jenny Packham Gown  with a peek a boo lace back and a Swarovski crystal encrusted belt paired with Jimmy Choo High Heels, she radiated Star Quality!!

I say "Well done!" my Royal loving friend!

I know THAT dress! Where are the knock offs? I want one.

The pink dress made a second appearance earlier this week at an outdoor luncheon. Love how she recycles.

You may want to add the pound note symbol before the 1300 otherwise people might think it weighs that much. LOL :)
