Camilla shines next to Mette-Marit of Norway

Wednesday March 21, 2012

Charles and Camilla were guests of honour at a lavish banquet thrown by the Norwegian royal family on Tuesday evening.

And the event provided the Duchess and her Scandinavian counterpart, Princess Mette-Marit, a chance to display their full regal splendour.

Camilla looked resplendent in a flowing purple velour gown and glittering diadem jewels.

Meanwhile, the Mette-Marit made sure the touring British royals saw the best side of Norway with her elegant hosting.

The Duke and Duchess are in the country as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour of Scandinavia.

During their stay, they will reside in the guest quarters of the Royal Palace in Oslo.

After Norway, Charles and Camilla will take in the sights of Sweden and Denmark.
