Tiara week marches on! Lucky us. The Belgian royals have arrived for the State Visit with their neighbors in Luxembourg. Because we know our community, let’s just jump to the bling close-ups immediately.
Here are three lovely ladies sparkling at the first night’s State Banquet: Mathilde, in the full Nine Provinces, Stephanie wearing the Citrine as only she can, and the gracious Maria Teresa wearing the Belgian Scroll. I think the tiara hair is particularly good here, across the board. I am also thinking that the Citrine earrings would find a very nice home in my jewelry box.
Pulling back for the long shot, we see some amazing dress to room coordination. Stephanie is picking up the colors in the couch and carpet, MT the drapery, and they allowed the visiting Queen her fabulous pop of color. MT’s dress is by Carolina Herrera, and Mathilde’s magenta number is a bespoke creation by Armani Prive.
The Grand Duke gave Mathilde and Philippe a daytime tour, which unfortunately was mostly conducted in the rain. Mathilde was in a Natan floral green dress with a ruffled high neckline, which she covered with a cozy green coat, also by Natan.
The Queen and King traveled to Luxembourg by train, and Mathilde wore a soft pink coat with shoulder button fasteners, by Giorgi Armani.
On Day 2, Stephanie accompanied the Queen to an academic seminar on medical innovation. Mathilde’s dress is new, by Dries Van Noten.
HM the Queen and HRH the Hereditary Grand Duchess meet and greet top-notch academics and researchers from Belgian and Luxembourgish institutions in the framework of the academic seminar on Medical Innovation.#belux2019 #wbi @wbi_tweet @PYJeholet @ARESfwb_be @VLIRnws pic.twitter.com/ciOJGtvJOS
