Hi,

It is wonderfully diplomatic for her to arrive in green...
Maybe we will see the Cambridge emeralds at the state dinner later!!

According to today's BBC news, the Queen's dress for the state dinner was hand-embroidered with 2,000 shamrocks. Think of the work that went into that, and is our famously frugal monarch likely to wear it again!

Nothing green here,not an emarald.But white,always white on State Banquets....another tablecloth gone.. ::)
That's why I dubbed her "Tablecloth Lilly" on these occasions.White at,excusse moi,her age,is "rare" to say the least,
but I forgive her...:

I do hope however that Ireland will gain something from this visit,more support for further funding from the EU
as the country really is in shambles for living way way above their station for way too long.Hence the PM accompanying
HM,there is a lot more going on then elderly Ladies wearing tiara's on this visit.It is mainly on the crisis Ireland
is in over its head and not always seems to understand....It was therefore that Mary McAleese,the countries
admirable Head of State,was on a European tour recently,well,last month,to gain more financial support from the other
member states.But when I watch the hostile reactions to HM's visit,I just think,why bother!Many are so downright dumb
they don't even understand what's going on in their own backyard.OK then,then go and have their pints and think all is
well as long as they can get "plastered" and have another patato crisis as far as I'm concerned :-X...

Hi,

No, not an emerald anywhere to be seen!
I was quite disappointed that she looked so "washed out" in only diamonds.  I liked the dress and the shamrocks;  but thought that the Vladimir Tiara with the emerald drops and the Cambridge emerald necklace would be more appropriate (and colourful) on this occaison.

Oh well, what do I know about fashion??!!!!......

Not being much interested in fashion, I think it's more important that she has gone there - bombs and all!

You clearly know heaps Larry as I couldn't agree more! I think the beautiful Godman Necklace would have looked perfect! Or the Sapphire suite would have looked lovely against the white. Still HM still looks wonderful.

You know it is a shame I am not the Queens dresser. I would be perfect, I would ensure she wears more a diverse selection of jewellery for example the dagmar necklace and the cullinan diamonds too. It's such a shame they are sitting in a vault, they should be on display if they are not going to be worn. I would also ensure that HM wears more of an electic mix of jewels during the day, especially some of the wonderfu bracelets she has which would look lovely against a black glove (Examples include: the indian bagles, Queen Marys bracelet, Princess Marie Louises bracelet & the art deco quartet & the rose of york bracelet)

I would love too see Princess Anne and The Duchess of Cornwall & Cambridge wearing more of these beautiful, historic jewels too. I'm sure you all agree.

What an abusive and surprising post from somebody I had long considered to be above such comments.  Downright nasty.  I am not from the Irish Republic, but perhaps it is you who doesn´t understand what is going on there, or the historic occasion in the interests of peace and decency Her Majesty´s visit is.
Shame on you!

may you should think of a more symbol than emeralds when the Girls of Great Britain and IRELAND Tiara was worn.....( I think thats the correct name and not GoGBa Northern Ireland Tiara.)

Well all in all I think the visit has been a tremendous success! :) :) Though I did see a few pictures in the news of republican groups burning Union Jacks and setting bins alight etc (In fact why do those people responsible always look so ugly? There time would be better spent making the best of themselves).

Exactly Eddie - unfortunately there will always be a noisy minority who just won´t move on - indeed they would be much better off if they dedicated their time to holding down jobs, going to work and feeding their families rather than causing disruption while sponging off the state.  However, history and politics are ever emotive issues in Ieland.  Her Majesty´s visit to the Republic has been a major advance in reconciliation.  You may be interested in this editorial from Northern Ireland´s Belfast Telegraph which sums up the importance of this particular State Visit.

And of course, The Queen is much more than an elderly lady in a tiara to quote Lucien, she is the living embodiment of the nation and its history and present.
