I will start a thread here when Albert and Charlene will visit the Queen on the 18th May, 2012, for the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. Here are four quotes about an article published on MailOnlie on April 7, 2012.
Aides said it was the Queen’s idea to host the lunch and she was ‘delighted’ when Prince Charles offered to throw a dinner. It is understood that the reigning heads of Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Andorra, Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands and Norway will all attend the lunch.
...the Diamond Jubilee lunch, which will take place at Windsor on May 18 and which will be a historic and intimate gathering of crowned heads.
During the Golden Jubilee the Queen hosted a party for the sovereigns of Europe, but this is a much wider gathering of reigning monarchs from around the world.
A Palace source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘It was the Queen’s decision to host the lunch and her decision to invite every world sovereign. It would have been very rude to have left anyone off the list and the Queen would never want to offend anyone.’ The source added: ‘Charles can’t make the Queen’s luncheon as he and Camilla are on official engagements, but he will be hosting the evening celebrations and he is sparing no expense on the meal, which will all be organic, and the champagne, which will flow all night.’
Le Couple princier assistera aux réceptions du Jubilé de Diamant, au Château de Windsor. Elles marqueront les 60 ans du règne de la reine Elizabeth II. La reine Elizabeth II est le seul monarque de Grande-Bretagne à avoir célébré son jubilé de diamant, mise à part la Reine Victoria en 1897.

First, one queen snubbed another queen's party. Sofia of Spain is now not coming because of Gibraltar - the territory Britain has and Spain wants back.
