Hofdame Bits and Bobs

What a week, right? One royal wedding, two state visits, and a plethora of coronation events. Take a deep breath, put your feet up, and dive in for a relaxing respite. Ha, just kidding! The royals all jumped on planes and immediately started a new round of events.


Queen Mathilde bolted from the coronation and hopped a plane to Vietnam for a three-day Unicef mission trip. I don’t know the designer of this dress, but it’s nice to see a fresh print that flatters the lovely Queen.


The Danish royal women leaned into the red this week. Crown Princess Mary put in an appearance at the Children Need Arts – Global Summit in a repeated Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Queen Margrethe attended the Craftsmen’s Association in Copenhagen” annual awards, and doesn’t she look elegant in her royal lady pantsuit? Lovely manicure, too.


My second favorite royal had his third birthday, and his parents – who haven’t stopped grinning since his birth – positively beamed.


King Felipe teleported himself directly from the coronation to Spain. He picked up Infanta Sofia and headed to the Copa del Rey Final match between Real Madrid and CA Osasuna. Sofia is in a Zara shirt.

Queen Silvia wasn’t at the coronation but spent some time recuperating from the state visit to Estonia by working, as she does. She attended a conference on dementia held in Stockholm. I thought this was a lovely spring suit.

The Netherlands

Speaking of jumping back into work, the King and Queen of the Netherlands were busy in the early part of the week too. They received Kenyan President William Ruto (and his wife Rachel Ruto) at Noordeinde Palace, and Max donned a Johanna Ortiz dress for the occasion.

Then it was off on another jaunt, a two-day trip to the Wadden Islands, which included a stop at a beach pavilion and sheep farm. Max dressed up for the occasion, as she does ; ). Who thinks a Claes Iversen suit, Fabienne Delvigne hat, and dangling earrings are too much for a farm visit? Certainly not Max.
