Re: Queen Camilla at Versailles
Thanks Stefan, once a tiara is worn it clearly distinguishes statuses and roles, what happens when a Queen doesn't wear a tiara to state functions like that is the Queen does not have any real relevance.
A Queen must by a clearly defined person of attention so what she wears is also very important and significant. But to go to the French nation the home of fine jewelry and not dawn a tiara is kind of odd.
Not true. Queen Elizabeth II. wore one in 2015 so only 8 years ago. And she always wore a tiara for black tie State Dinners as do many other Queens (Máxima, Mathilde, Silvia, Margrethe, Sonja)
And Camilla has worn tiaras to black tie events before like the Commonewealth Dinners
It is the host who sets the dress code and tiaras haven't been worn at French Republic hosted state dinners in many years. We are lucky that things have been upgraded to black-tie and formal evening gowns for this banquet which made appropriate Camilla wearing a very regal demi-parure.
Search for photos of the 2014 Swedish, 2015 Spanish, and 2016 Dutch state banquets in Paris and see a less formal dress code with men in business suits and the queens in knee length dresses. No tiaras and few very grand jewels. For the Dutch dinner Francois Cluzet wore an open shirt and no tie....That was a very relaxed dress code indeed.
