Phew, thanks Queen for the new thread. I was getting a bit twitchy towards the end of the old one!

Looking forward to seeing the Duchesses at Wimbledon.

Thank you for the new thread, Queen. 🙂

One of DH's colleagues will be at the Mens Final on Sunday. I've asked him to ask her to send her comments re the royal outfits.
Mind you, if Roger gets through we've no chance as she'll be totally fixated on him!

@banivani Yay for scandi neighbourhood! Sorry for derail, guys, I just get happy when I come across someone from anywhere close to back home!

I’m looking forward to seeing Meghan and Kate tomorrow. Hopefully some great outfits!

I feel sorry for the two duchesses as every little movement and expression is going to analyses and overanalysed tomorrow. If they don't chat much they'll be said to be at loggerheads but if they're too friendly they'll be accused of putting on a show. They really can't win!

On the subject of royal dresses- I stole this from another thread. It’s lovely!

AnnaMagnani Fri 12-Jul-19 13:00:50

Thank-you @BertrandRussell there is a lovely book about the France and Marianne dolls from when they were restored.

I went to see them at Windsor Castle and they are stunning. They are in the same room as Queen Mary's Dollshouse but disappointingly stuffed in a cabinet where you can't see them that well - I'd have had a whole corridor devoted to them with every outfit grin

On the other hand they are easy to view as absolutely nobody else is interested in looking at them, unlike the dollshouse so you have the display to yourself.

Thanks @Queen

Thanks for new thread.
Here's Princess Beatrice looking sharp as nails with boyfriend Edoardo.
How long have they been together? Is it even a year yet?
However she's said to be keen to settle down; so I'd go for a winter engagement;. and a 2020 wedding.

Love Bea's outfit - that copper skirt really brings out her colouring. I would LOVE another royal wedding next year! C'mon Eduardo - pop the Q.

frugalkitty Fri 12-Jul-19 13:44:26

Checking in, thanks Queen

Nanamilly Fri 12-Jul-19 13:48:34

I think Eduardo has to get divorced first.

QueenOfTheAndals Fri 12-Jul-19 13:58:38

I don't think he was ever married?

CurlyWurlyTwirly Fri 12-Jul-19 13:59:37

I don't think he's actually married more about Edoardo dm link
