State Visit from Mexico: State Banquet


Buckingham Palace was a glittering wonderland at last night's state banquet in honor of the president of Mexico. Here's a look at the jewels on display...



The Queen donned a tiara that she'd previously worn during a state visit to Mexico: the diamond kokoshnik tiara that belonged to Queen Alexandra. She paired it with her modern diamond fringe necklace and the collar of the Order of the Aztec Eagle.





Here's a look at what the presidential couple from Mexico wore. President Peña Nieto donned the insignia of the Order of the Bath.



The first lady, Angelica Rivera, wore a striking one-shouldered gown, pairing it with delicate jewelry.



Prince Philip is wearing the collar of the Order of the Aztec Eagle with the sash of the Order of the Garter. What do you think -- did the royals and their guests impress you with their bejeweled appearance at the banquet?
