More money spent on celebration of Charles. I expect there will be a year of Charles tributes again.

Charles is the future King and has served his nation well since his investiture.

The Queen wants to acknowledge that - and in the process is making it very clear who her heir is, as much as his detractors would want it otherwise. Last year she asked the Commonwealth to name Charles as her successor to being Head of the Commonwealth, she celebrated her own first born child's 70th birthday (and some people even objected to a mother celebrating such a milestone birthday with her son) and now she wants to celebrate another milestone in her son's life - and hers, of course.

The Queen is perfectly able to celebrate the milestones in her children's lives. Next year she will celebrate the 70th birthday or her daughter and the 60th birthday of her second son. I wonder how much criticism there will be of those celebrations.

Trouble is Charles celebrates throughout the year and does not limit it to one month. maybe another book tribute is in the works with lots of bashing of the first wife and yes, maybe even his parents.

1. Not everything happened/ happens in one month, and
2. if it all were celebrated/ marked in one month, no one would have a frikkin clue what was celebrated and the celebrations would then indeed seem never-ending.

Fine if you want to celebrate, but don't use taxpayer money for this lavish nonsense when we're living in austerity.

This is a reception at BP.

The only cost to taxpayers will be if any people want to wait around outside to see the royals turning up meaning some extra police on duty in the local area - as is normal for all royal engagements that involves royals being visible to the public.

Otherwise this is simply a reception inside the palace and any funding will be from the Sovereign Grant.

Meghan and Kate reunited! Duchesses make a rare joint appearance as the Queen hosts a party at Buckingham Palace to mark Charles' 50 years as Prince of Wales

The Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex have come together for their first joint engagement since they were pictured attending the annual church service at Sandringham on Christmas Day.

Kate, 37, and Meghan, also 37, attended a reception in the White Drawing room at Buckingham Palace thrown by the Queen to mark the 50th anniversary of her son Charles' investiture as Prince of Wales.

Their husbands, along with Prime Minister Theresa May, were among the guests at the event honouring Charles's contribution to the national life of Wales over the decades.

Charles was created the Prince of Wales at the age of nine, on July 26 1958, and was formally invested with the title at Caernarfon Castle by the Queen on July 1 1969.

The investiture regalia he wore was on display, including the coronet, sword, ring and rod, as well as the Letters Patent for the creation of Charles as Prince of Wales in 1958.

Brushing aside ongoing rumours of a rift, the Duchess of Sussex looked elegant as she joined Prince Harry, 34, to mark Prince Charles' fifty years of service to Wales, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

Meghan cut a graceful figure in a recycled £895 Amanda Wakeley coat teamed with a floral embellished dress as she stood alongside Harry during the celebrations on Tuesday, joined by Kate and Prince William, 36.

Meanwhile the Duchess of Cambridge looked stylish in a mint-coloured blouse dress featuring ruffled sleeves and a button-up collar, which she teamed with suede nude heels.  

Prime Minister Theresa May was pictured curtsying as she greeted the Queen, with both parties opting for vibrant purple ensembles for the occasion.

Dressed in a smart pinstripe suit and patterned tie, the Prince of Wales was seen chatting to actor Owen Teale and opera singer Wynne Evans, who is well-known for his role as the tenor Gio Compario in the Go Compare insurance adverts.

Welsh band Stereophonics, who were supported by the Prince's Trust in their early days, were also at the event, as was Games Of Thrones star Owen Teale.

Kate's dress was another retro forties dress, she should get more contemporary fashions.

I liked the silver on Meghan's dress better than the black/grey she usually wears.

For Pete's Sake!   Meggles is again over/inappropriately dressed.  All other women, including the Queen, are wearing day dresses/suits.  She looks like the mother of the groom at a wedding.   And look at how inappropriately she stands with her legs wide open. . . .

^true. She’s assuming her comfortable position around men.  spy

Family portrait! Queen leads three generations of royals as she's joined by Charles, his children and their wives to mark his 50 years as Prince of Wales - but Prince Philip is unable to attend

Meghan’s so off to the right that she could be cropped out of the picture.

The main thing is that she’s not photographed near Charles to indicate that there’s a close bond. Harry looks like he’s keeping her next to him so she doesn’t wonder off and try and get photo ops with the queen, Charles, Wills and Waity.

^  did you watch the video?  At about 1:00, you'll see an aide run up behind Harry and stop him and Meggles from following the senior royals to the table.  Then about 1:30, you'll see that two aides are keeping Harry and Megs in place while the senior royals sit down.   easter-lol

Meghan looks dreadful here https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/03/05/12/10598822-6772677-image-a-22_1551787676567.jpg The lips are vile, and her shoes are too big. The dress looks like it's made of carpet.

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/03/05/12/10599440-6772677-image-a-44_1551788906628.jpg An absolute mess

I don't know why Kate needs so many identical looking dresses? How are these 3 dresses different enough to justify the $$$ she spent on each of them?

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/03/05/12/10599066-6772677-image-a-38_1551788206271.jpg

I genuinely don't understand how she can have all these beautiful dresses that she wears once or twice. What is the point of them just sitting there? It would make more sense if she borrowed the clothes, rather than buying them.

I also don't know why Meghan and Harry have to cling onto each other. It's juvenile and totally inappropriate for an official work engagement.

I feel bad Camilla is there. The former mistress. She is worse than Meghan IMO. NOne of them are anything to write home about. THe Queen is the only one there I admire.

The schedule was cut short and Camilla and the Cambridges saw about ten seconds of the display if that. The royals enter a room in strict precedence. If Hzarry and Meghan are so minor, then they would have been sitting with the Linleys for the recital of Welsh music. Instead, there were the Sussexes, in the front row, with the Queen, Anne and Cambridges and indeed next to camilla and the guest of honour, Charles.

If they were not "important" Harry and Meghan would not have been there. It's a shame though the DM has to dwell on their "rivalry" gossip of Kate and Meghan instead of the purpose of the ceremony
