Hofdame Bits and Bobs

I was reflecting on how normally, this time of year would be the big run-up to the holidays, with a flurry of royal activities. I don’t think I need to tell you that it’s hardly normal times, but our royals have been out and about a bit. Nice of them to provide this small service, right?


Sophie wins the mask contest this week, with Charles a close second. The Queen goes virtual for audiences. See it all here.

Back in the Bag

It seems like another world, but here is the post from last year’s Nobel ceremonies. You know our Luckey Girl, like many of you, is in deep mourning today.


Tils visited the De Zande facility, a place for young women who are under judicial supervision. The pandemic has strongly limited their outside contact. As for the ensemble, I present it to you with just one word: Natan.

Completely not-related to anything recent, but when I was searching for photos of the Burmese ruby necklace used in the construction of the Burmese Ruby tiara (see the comments in this post for that whole rabbit hole), I found these photos of HerMaj’s wedding gown and veil. I have never appreciated the full splendor.

I was ridiculously excited to get this unusual take on Classic Princessing from Laurentien. I simply don’t see her often enough, I guess. Yes, it’s definitely a funky ensemble, but look who is wearing it! She was taking part in a digital meeting, with a focus on the participation of people with a disability.

Victoria participated with a digital greeting at the Wood Prize Gala, wearing H&M jewelry AND a blouse.

I love Silvia in white. Pro tip: Coordinate with your hearth for maximum effect! The Queen participated in the Silvia home certification of St. Carolus’ Hospital in Görlitz, Germany.


Another classic princessing alert. Bene shows us some elegance in green. She visited Hellebro, an organization that works for young homeless and vulnerable people aged 18 through 29.

Enjoy some of Daisy’s creativity during this season.

Speaking of creativity, Daisy’ elves are back! I feel a little bit of Christmas spirit inching its way into my Grinchy self ; )

Where do think Daisy's elves should find their next snack?
