--'Twas a busy and sparkly week over at the Jewel Vault: full coverage of the Diplomatic Reception with tiaras for Her Maj, Cams, and Kate; a new loan from the vaults for Sophie; and more diamonds for Camilla.

--And finally, Queen Máxima didn't know if she'd worn enough stripes this year, so she wore this dress just to make sure she had her bases covered.
