Winter wanders on…..let’s spread warmth with some royal news.
Did you miss some royal news last week? Check out Getty images for the week of February 10th. There is a lot we didn’t cover, including Prince Albert at the glitzy Hollywood Ocean do and Anne being, well, very Anne.
The Brits have been everywhere. Cams tried to give the Beefeaters at the Tower a run for their money, stylewise, with this complicated coat, while Charles inspected the family jewels.
Sophie, as always, has a wardrobe that doesn’t excite me, but her work is flawless. She was great with the kids at The Shooting Star Chase Hospice.
Kate visited Scotland (rewearing her excellent “Delaney” coat), sat in on the “Happy Mum, Happy Baby” podcast, and released a lovely new photo of Charlotte. Her husband stayed home in London, hosting the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund at St. James Palace.
Several of the senior Japanese royals attended the Grand Prix Orchid and Flower show, which is an event I am very happy to learn exists. Princess Hisako stands out to me for her boucle suit and her very obvious enjoyment of the festivities.
Emperor Naruhito, Empress Masako, Princess Takamado (Hisako) and Noriko Senge attended the 30th Japan Grand Prix International Orchid and Flower Show 2020 at Tokyo Dome on February 14.https://t.co/CPuYBi4h5f

Does it surprise anyone that Princess Laurentien is game for a singalong? Tap your feet under your desk and sing along with her, “What the world needs now…..”

Meanwhile, what do we have here? Movie star or Max’s husband? You tell me.

Princess Victoria, carrying on a strong Swedish royal tradition, granted the wish of a child with a brain tumor, and it’s as touching as you would imagine. Royal Central has some further information on the event, which included an hour with the princess and a carriage ride through town.
Let’s End with a Different Classic Princess
Princess Alexandra opened St. Christopher’s hospice in 1967, when it was a new concept in health care. She has been patron since 1981 and has visited every year since 1982. Now that is commitment, and that is why royals remain relevant.
Yesterday Princess Alexandra returned to @StChrisHospice and spent time with patients, their families, staff and dedicated volunteers.
