We enjoyed our break, but royal news waits for no Hofdame! Off we go.
There are incredible “super-blooms” at the Tower of London, show jumping in Monaco, and Wales in Wales – all here for your viewing pleasure.
It’s blazing hot here but in Paris the Fall Winter couture shows are on. Beatrice Casiraghi was spotted at the Dior show, which is no surprise given that she’s one of their ambassadors. I *thought* this was a standard issue shirtwaist until I saw the hem.
Her sister-in-law, Tatiana Casiraghi, popped up at the Giambattista Valli show wearing Valli separates with some kind of dizzying reverse tie dye effect.
I thought you all might enjoy this dress (a late Worth, apparently) from the collection of Queen Maud. It looks stunning and cool for summer. Also, completely unwearable for anyone who wants to eat or sit down. Beautiful, nonetheless.
Another #Frockingfabulous something from the wardrobe of Queen Maud of Norway. This House of Worth #gravymagnet is from 1937! Via Nasjonalmuseet, Oslo. pic.twitter.com/MM68BwIR06

Directly back from their state visit to Austria last week, Max and Wax headed off to the Dutch National Ballet Gala. The Queen wore the one-shoulder Etro Asymmetric Printed Stretch-Cady Gown with some very Max-like earrings (clip-ons by JAR – also favored by Marie Chantal).
It’s been one event after another in Britain, and Wimbledon has made its way to the schedule almost as an afterthought. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in the Royal Box yesterday, Kate holding up her end of the “Summer of Sameness” by repeating a polka dot Alessandra Rich dress, which we recently saw at the Jubilee “Big Lunch”.
There have been a couple of appearances of the Middleton parents. As you are all too well aware, I never object to seeing Michael Middleton, and his lovely wife Carole. Mrs. Middleton was sporting a new hairstyle and a Boden jumpsuit. Yesterday they reappeared and Mrs. M. swapped out the jumpsuit for a more conventional floral dress.
We also had a Duchess photographing Duchess situation. The Duchess of Cornwall, who is making a bit of a summer splash in various magazines, was photographed for Country Life by the Duchess of Cambridge. Camilla was a guest editor of the issue.
In celebration of The Duchess of Cornwall’s 75th Birthday and the magazine’s 125th anniversary, Her Royal Highness has guest edited a special commemorative edition of @CountryLifeMag, to be published on Wednesday 13th July. pic.twitter.com/y4b3dl1E7V

In case you lost track, here are all the wedding ensembles from Princess Fadzilah of Brunei’s wedding last week. Tiara Mania has a post about the diamond-encrusted bouquets that the royal family uses for weddings – something that I entirely missed in all the tiara madness and fabulous color of those events!
I love learning about them but I often miss when they are happening so I’ve learned to follow the SEA royals’ fav makeup artists! I think this is all of Syafiqah’s wedding looks. I always love the red and gold outfits for the Malam Berbedak even though it’s not a tiara. pic.twitter.com/Fzm7fj12Ib
