Hofdame Bits and Bobs

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first week of U.S. “fall-back” season. We are adapting to the darkness here so we welcome any royal attempt to color our world.


Getty embeds are not working right now for us, so we are avoiding them in the posts this week. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon. You can still see Emperor Naruhito, Queen Letizia, the Princess of Wales, and other royals on the Getty site itself.


It’s the England vs. Papua New Guinea rugby quarter-finals! Honestly this would have passed me by but for the the Princess of Wales appearance. She is sticking with tone-on-tone in the same color here. We’ve seen her Alexander McQueen coat before, and that is a Gabriela Hearst sweater and Boden skirt underneath. I think pleats are back, folks!

Very royal-adjacent, but if you want a little more old school glamour in your life, then Lady Margarita-Armstrong Jones is here to provide it.


Spain has been the center of our re-wear universe lately, and this is a good one. The Queen broke out this beautiful Carolina Herrera gown, which we saw previously during the British/Spanish state visit in 2017. The couple attended the 175th Anniversary of the Fundacion del Circulo del Liceo de Barcelona. See the Royal Watcher blog for more details.


Princess Madeleine supported Sweden from her home base in Florida as a representative to the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce summit. She is wearing a Veronica Beard blazer and a new-to-us dress. (H/T to UFONoMore).


There was a royal lady pantsuit gathering in the Netherlands last week, otherwise known as the Dutch family photocall. The Queen is in total re-wear mode with her Oscar de la Renta coat (here) and Roberto Colina separates (more pleats, more pleats). The Princess of Orange is in a Zara suit (a Zara I actually covet), and Princess Ariane is in a royal-share, as that blazer comes from mom’s closet.

You know what’s a nice touch? The sisters all wore this charm necklace. Huge H/T to UFONoMore for that find.


Tell us what you know!
