King Charles III and Camilla: Prince William and Catherine Princess Of Wales at their side for a historic day

The British Royal family is living this Tuesday, November 22, a historic day. For the first time since his enthronement, Charles III received a foreign president in London. Prince William and Catherine Princess Of Wales were present at his side for the welcoming ceremony.

The serious things begin. This Tuesday, November 22, Charles III received in London the President of South Africa and his wife, Cyril Ramaphosa and Tshepo Motsepe. A first since the enthronement of the monarch, last September 10. Before escorting him to the ceremony at the Horse Guards Parade, the heirs to the crown, Prince William and Catherine Princess Of Wales, welcomed the head of state and his wife at the Corinthia, their five-star hotel. For the occasion, cannons were fired from Green Park and two hundred horses followed by a thousand soldiers paraded.

After the welcoming ceremony, the 74-year-old monarch and the South African president returned to Buckingham Palace for a private lunch. A cultural tour, featuring items from the Royal Collection relating to South Africa, is scheduled for the afternoon. This two-day diplomatic visit is expected to play an important role for Cambridge.

The tiaras in the spotlight at the Buckingham banquet

From this Tuesday evening, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Princess Anne, Sophie and Edward of Wessex, will take part in the banquet. King Charles III and Cyril Ramaphosa will both make speeches, as is tradition. For the reception at the Palace, the royal women will be wearing tiaras, according to Tatler magazine. Having an impressive collection, it is impossible to know which one

will wear. One thing is certain: it will not be the one that Lady Diana wore at her wedding to Charles, in 1981. The reason? When the Princess of Hearts died, the glittering jewel went to the Spencer family, who now have custody of it.
