Thanks QueenoftheAndals.

I loved Clionbas post '....... they're hardly rushing off to relieve the babysitter, get the dinner ready and put a wash on.......' gringringrin

We all had much to discuss! I am liking the pristine new palace of Royal Fashion and <whispers> a little gossip between engagements....

Back to Prince Louis’s christening photo. The official ones had a sepia tint to them, so Kate looked like she had a great tan and Louis looked dark haired!

They had a second photographer snapping away. Louis is so alert!

I noticed the blue and cream theme in the group photo, which matched the room/furniture. It almost looked like Meghan was the only one who missed the email dictating the dress code!

Loved Kate's yellow dress yesterday. The colour was fairly predictable as she's worn it to Wimbledon before (to match the ball?) but it suits her, the cut was lovely and I especially like the sleeves. Bag & shoes still boring though. Overall, a much more focus-pulling outfit than the previous day, but then she was with William rather than Meghan.

Just marking as I'm enjoying these threads!

Harry and Megs will be at the South Bank tomorrow so there'll be another outfit to ogle. Not sure what's planned for after that though autumn should be good with their Oz trip and Wax and Max's state visit.

I wonder who was pulling faces or doing a silly dance to make Louis laugh like that.

I like Charlotte's dress. Very fresh and cool. Is there some stitching or stiffening in the hem to make the skirt stand out?

Nice to see children dressed as children, and not mini adults. George and Charlotte's outfits are appropriate for the occasion, but light and simple and allowing freedom of movement.

Wax and Max ?

I saw that photo Curly. Isn't he just gorgeous.

In that group photo, MM looks so dull. She is the only one with a weird colour on. Strange woman!

QueenOfTheAndals Mon 16-Jul-18 19:45:17

@beanaseireann Willem-Alexander and Maxima of the Netherlands = Wax & Max!

Thank you QueenoftheAndals

Kate is so in love with Louis!

Going back to Mathilde of Belgium for a moment, I think I read somewhere that she's one of only two European queens or crown princesses who is from the nobility herself. I can't remember who the other one is.

The monarch of Lichtenstein and his heir are married to women from the nobility, and the heir to the grand ducal throne of Luxembourg is married to a noblewoman. I can't think of any others.

Mathilda is very sweet looking but often dresses older than her age.

This is going to sound weird but, regarding the christening colour scheme, is it one of those things that the royal family/Middletons just pick up via osmosis I.e. it’s a boy so stick to blue/neutrals, photos in the blue drawing room .... and Meghan just isn’t in that old fashioned traditional bubble yet?

MintyChops Mon 16-Jul-18 23:27:51

Those photos of Kate with Louis are gorgeous, she looks besotted. I really like her headband thing, at least she is trying out something different. Love this thread, thanks for starting it Queen.

I think my best-dressed Royal is Princess Mary of Denmark. She takes a few risks, wears many different styles and colors and looks amazing nearly all the time. And her hair is fab too!

Checking in!

Placemarking! Had fun reading yesterday’s thread and took me ages to find it today!

Some good analysis from Tom & Lorenzo on Kate at Wimbledon on Sunday and the Kate/Meghan/Diana comparisons.

beanaseireann Tue 17-Jul-18 12:03:35

Meghan and Harry at the Nelson Mandela exhibition.
Meghan's dress looks like a trench coat with the arms cut off smile

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 17-Jul-18 12:04:31

Hmm interesting outfit choice by Meghan today. Not sure it'd be my choice - looks a bit like she chopped the sleeves off her Burberry mac - but it'll get people talking, that's for sure!

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 17-Jul-18 12:05:02

Hah snap @beanaseireann
