Dubbed as the largest gathering of crowned heads of states since the 1953 Coronation, the Diamond Jubilee Dinner at Windsor Castle was attended by some of the most popular—and most notorious—sovereigns in the world.
The seating plan included 24 kings and queens, one emperor, a grand duke and a sultan, along with eight princesses, an emir and an empress, details Daily Mail.
Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein was the first to arrive for pre-lunch drinks in the Waterloo Chamber.
King Harald V of Norway kissed the Queen’s hand and she responded with a beaming smile.
Prince Albert II of Monaco was more formal with just a handshake while his wife, Princess Charlene, gave a low curtsey.
Perhaps, the warmest gesture came from Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, who gave the queen a wide open arms as she approached the Queen before kissing her warmly.
