President Georges Pompidou and First Lady Claude Pompidou hosted a State Banquet for the Queen (wearing the Vladimir Tiara, Duchess of Gloucester’s Pendant Earrings, and Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Necklace) and Duke of Edinburgh in the Petit Trianon of the Palace of Versailles on this day in 1972, following a Gala Performance in the Palace Theatre on the evening of the first day of the British State Visit to France. This was the second of the Queen and Duke’s five State Visits to France, following their previous State Visit in 1957.

  1. Gosh! That is one beautiful, sparkling Queen! She looks absolutely fabulous! Incredibly so, 50 years have passed since then. I’ve noticed that the Queen always makes an extra effort to look nice when she visits France. 😉
