Hofdame Bits and Bobs

Good morning! Hope you enjoyed our dip into the nobility of Spain last week. If you are missing Spanish coverage, know that the Princess of Asturias awards are coming up this Friday. Mark your calendars!

Also, forgot to mention this exhibit last week, The Tudors, Art and Majesty in Renaissance England. If you are in NYC visiting the Met in the next few months, let us know how it is!


Crown Princess Victoria wore a lot of suits, investitures continue at Windsor, and Queen Maxima wrapped up her visit to Tanzania. See it all here.


It looks like we maybe (possibly!) have a date for this long awaited wedding.


Friend-of-the-blog Josine has started a series of posts on palaces, and she has some wonderful photos. I know we have some architecture lovers here. If you are interested, you can see the first post of the series here.


The Duchess of Brabant has had a portrait painted!

Meanwhile, the Queen visited a hotel with a cooking school. She chose her wine colored Natan ensemble for the visit. It seems a bit off-brand for Natan until you get to the belt.

It’s autumn, so that means the Swedish Crown Princess is leaning into suits and ankle boots. Recently, Victoria paid a visit to the Tobias Register, an organization that matches blood donors with recipients. She opted for her Zara suit paired with a black blouse, and you guessed it – her ankle boots.

She also attended the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Court of Appeals in Gothenburg. She sported ankle boots with a pleated midi for this event.
