Hofdame Bits and Bobs

I don’t have any clever or witty greeting for this week’s Hofdame salon. Summer is winding down and many royals are still out of pocket, but we will make do with a couple of royal events and a new-to-me tiara sighting.


Watch the Spains continue to work, gaze at some excellent photos of Chaz and Cams at the Remembrance, and marvel at Mary’s elegance (which we’ll get into a bit below), all here.


Mary looked like an elegant dream while restocking fish. Yes, you read that right. Mary released some thornback rays into Danish waters, at an event of the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature. She is wearing A Piece Apart skirt and Dulong earrings.

Mary also gave a speech at Copenhagen Pride Week. The Crown Princess wore a Designers Remix (Charlotte Ekskildsen) skirt, and if you told me that I would like a pleated chiffon skirt I would have told you you were crazy, but here we are and I am on the “Like Train.”


Victoria is back from vacation, and she jumped with a floral – surprise! I like this one. I think the short sleeves and open neckline go a long way to making florals less suffocating. The Princess herself looks rested and ready for the autumn. Hit up New My Royals for close ups of the dress, shoes and earrings, by Rodebjer, Saint Laurent and Ebba Brahe, respectively .

Virtual Vacationing with the Royals

Do you want to visit Greece? I certainly do. In my case, I have to live vicariously through the Dutch royals. They have a vacation home in Proto Heli, also known as the Greek Riveria. They bought the estate from the famous German photographer Manfred Rieker in 2012, and it included some famous neighbors: the Greek royal family 🙂

Being in Greece without a boat is no fun, right? No worries, they have that covered. Max and Wax were recently spotted by a fan, who snapped this picture in Milos. Shaggy WAX and no makeup MAX are definitely in vacation mode.

Thanks to our Handbag cohort Triple A for the inside info on the Greek getaway.

Before we leave, what do we think of this as a starter tiara for one of our Queens-in-Training? Or is it more a second daughter/princess tiara? I find the highly stylized bow less twee and more edgy, but you may feel differently. Weigh in below!

Thanks, Tiara Mania for bringing this to our attention!
