This week, Gwen and Us Weekly senior reporter Travis Cronin welcomed royals insider Omid Scobie (the London-based journalist who’s the host of the On Heir podcast and the man in the know on all things from where Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan go for quiet date nights to the activities of Prince William and Duchess Kate’s adorable flock, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis) to chat about the recent U.S. state visit to London and all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the week’s events. He let Us in on why everyone wore “very specific” white-tie looks to the state banquet. But that’s not all!

While the Queen always looks spectacular, Scobie shared the intimate details of exactly how her dresser Angela Kelly plans each of the monarch’s looks and, even more exciting, how the decision is made to pair which jewels (including tiaras!) with each outfit. You are not going to want to miss this episode, so click above to listen — it’s mind-blowing! He also shared the fascinating details of where the jewels (which, by the way, all belong to Queen Elizabeth — even the Lover’s Knot tiara that once belonged to Princess Diana that Duchess Kate is so fond of) are kept. And, yes, he even let slip how much the entire collection of crown jewels are worth. It’s wild!
