Hofdame Note: Monday is Commonwealth Day in the U.K. so we will have an Open Post for those activities. Bits will return on Tuesday. The wedding of Princess Iman is Sunday and our current Wedding Open Post will be moved to the top of the feed to capture everyone’s impressions.
So many suits this week. Spring suits, late winter suits, in green, fuchsia, yellow, and blue. There were skirts, skinny trousers, wide trousers, and sleeveless jackets. Really, there is something for everyone here.
Letizia attended a screening of the documentary “The Inner Path” (El Camino Interior) which is part of a series that promotes mental health. She wore her Carolina Herrera suit with a sort-of bow blouse. This low semi bow is the only way I will accept a p-bow blouse.
Mary attended an event at Aalborg University’s for International Women’s Day wearing her Massimo Dutti suit. Green is definitely the color of the week (and last week, if we rope the PoW into our calculations) and Mary leaned all the way into it.
Margareta, Custodian of the Crown of Romania, and her husband Prince Radu made the jaunt over to Sweden to visit King Carl Gustaf and family. Queen Silvia is wearing her Chanel suit (she wore it during the Spanish state visit), Crown Princess Victoria is in Zara, and Margareta is wearing an unidentified suit – but it’s a good one! Bonus Christina sighting. They make an interesting array of colors against the backdrop of that room. I would like to paint them.
Princess Charlene attended a series of International Women’s Day events with Prince Albert (and was later joined by her children, as well). She wore this pale blue Akris for a lunch at the Minister of State’s residence, where she met with women and discussed the importance of sport. No one beats Char in a suit.
I suppose including Crown Princess Mette Marit in this category is a bit of a stretch since she is wearing separates not a suit in the traditional sense. Well, we don’t see her often in sold structured wear, so let’s just say this counts. That is a Hugo Boss blouse paired with Gabriela Hearst trousers, worn for a visit to a mental health conference.
