Maxima speaks
Not what I expected at all!
Her accent is to my ear, a mix of British, Dutch and a hint of Spanish.

Thanks Queen

Good woman yourself Queen! Starting off the thread with a gallery of Princess Madeleine’s wedding looks over the years

Early morning check in, thanks Queen. Did anyone read the very positive full page article about the royals in yesterday's Sunday Times? They were indicating that with all the recent negativity around Andrew and the queen that the Firm have gone for a full on charm offensive.

Do the men in grey coordinate that well between the different households? It does seem good timing but apart from Bea's engagement surely the rest was long planned?

Thank you for the new thread Queen.

Thanks Queen. Checking in!

I know it way back on the last thread but someone asked who are these people that buy what the royals wear and I just happened upon this young lady, bit bizarre but she buys everything Kate and Pippa wear and models it. Must cost a fortune

Thanks for the new thread Queen

@CurlyWurlyTwirly That's pretty much what I expected Maxima to sound like after all her time in the Netherlands!

But it's always interesting to hear these royals speak English. I expected SFF to sound like Javier Bardem but instead he's got a mud-Atlantic accent. Queen Margrethe sounds British, as does Prince Joachim but CPF sounds Danish. And HH has an American twang!

Lovely new thread, thanks! 🙂

What royal events are on this week?

BertrandRussell Mon 30-Sep-19 08:00:49

Continuing my campaign to get Harry to sack his tailor. And get a valet who knows that no gentleman wears black socks with a grey suit and brown shoes....

QueenOfTheAndals Mon 30-Sep-19 08:01:24

Meghan has joined Harry for a Skype chat with a group of students in Malawi who are involved in a women's network. She's wearing the same green dress she wore to the polo over the summer but I agree with a PP who said it sometimes feels strange to talk about fashion when such important issues are being discussed! Still, that's the point of our threads so...

Horsemad Mon 30-Sep-19 08:02:21

Haha, Bert - PH def looks better in the dark suits imo.
