Hofdame Bits and Bobs

Happy St. Patrick’s week! I have Irish ancestry so I feel qualified to dub this a whole week of celebration. It was announced that the outgoing Colonel of the Irish Guards, Prince William, will attend Friday’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. The incoming Colonel, the Princess of Wales, will also be there. Party on the blog Friday.


It looks like the weeks around the Coronation will be filled with activity!


Crown Princess Mary visited the U.S. ambassador and pulled out an old (circa 2013 or so) Gucci ensemble from her closet. I love the zazzy addition of those shoes!


Crown Princess Victoria’s Name Day sort of slid right by us with everything else that’s been happening around the royal world. It was a cold one this year, folks. Sartorially of note, both mother and daughter wore Stand Studio coats (faux fur), the “Maria” for Crown Princess Victoria and the “Camille” for Princess Estelle.

Princess Caroline attended the inauguration of a dance studio named for her, wearing head to toe Celine. This is how you blergh it up successfully. Mix in different tones and texture and Bobs your Uncle.

The Netherlands

It was Volunteer Day last week in the Netherlands, and the King and Queen pitched in as they always do. WAX did the manly thing: donned wellies and moved some dirt around!

Oscar Oddments

Remember our Pocket Profile on Queen Soraya, the last Queen of Afghanistan? Well, some of her diamonds made their way to the 2023 Oscars on a very appropriate attendee!
