Thank you for the new thread @Maireas, the last one seemed to go so quickly.

I may be way off the mark but for the Coronation I imagine the senior royal ladies to be wearing dresses/long coats in the style of Camilla's wedding outfit. Heavier fabrics, a bit of brocade and some subtle detailing. It feels like too big an occasion for a rewear.

Just thought I'd mention, it is only 56 days until the Coronation πŸ‘‘

Hang on, that included today...cancel that - it's only 55 days
don't panic, plenty of time to dunk your tiara in the bath

Is it definitely a tiara event??? I thought Charlie was dialling it down?
I hope they don't opt for the normal attire in the cathedrals. Or do the Dutch long day dress and hat attire like on Prinsjesdag.
Praying for bling.

I’m a very occasional attendee on these threads but I do love the tiaras.

I asked a question on another thread and no one knew and I remembers the knowledgable posters on this thread.

Now Edward is DoE will he get to wear Prince Philips coronet?

Nice article but the picture from Edinburgh looks like she's got her dressing gown on over her nightie.

Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh who works harder than Kate, William or Camilla.

Is it just me or is he looking a bit unwell? He's lost a lot of weight and he didn't have any to lose in the first place.

He's maybe a bit thinner. He seems smiley and relaxed though.
Sophie looks great, I really like that Roksanda dress, and her hair and makeup are good, she's glowing.

There's a virtual mirror I just tried on my tiara πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

They don't have mine but I look great in the Queen Alexandra Fringe! Not at all overdressed for lazing around on the sofa!

Morning all! Thanks for the new thread @Maireas. πŸ’

Is the Belgian Scroll Tiara available by any chance? <flutters eyes at @Maireas as I know I'm taking the p with my magpie tendencies...>

@KillingMeDeftly DofEd does look like he's lost weight. Maybe he just really misses his mum.
Is he really wearing PPs suits? Shock

Love that website.

I want the Charlotte crown Maireas my friend. Can I add it to me sparkles or has somebody nabbed it already?

I’m working Coronation Day. I tried desperately to be off but no 😭

I’m going to have a tiara of sorts on if it kills me 😊

(Aye it is me - the one that strappy sandals shun 😘)

I thought that, I think he looks much more frail than usual.

Bless him. I always think of him as a sensitive kindly soul. Losing his parents and the unnecessary nastiness being flung about may have hung heavy on him.

It is wonderful to see him happy here though. Delighted that he is in the role he should be. 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

It's very unfair that you're working on Coronation Day, Sheldon - I may have to have stern words with your employers and show them this thread....πŸ‘Ώ
