Random Royaling – Princess Benedikte’s Guests

As you know because you’ve read lovinlorne’s post, one of our favorite Classic Edition princesses celebrated her 75th birthday in elegant style recently. Since Benedikte has been covered, let’s turn our attention to some of her guests. There are a trifecta of repeat dresses among them, all so good that they should be seen twice. Or more!

Crown Princess Mary brought her handsome husband and wore a repeated Lasse Spangenberg gown, first seen at the Armed Forces dinner in March 2018. A nice dress with great back detailing, but still no Bambi, right?

Queen Margrethe repeated her deep purple and open weave black lace gown, also seen at the French state visit banquet in 2018. I don’t see any pinholes from all those orders she wore with it last time – incredible! An elegant choice to honor her sister.

Bene’s daughters, Princess Alexandra and Princess Nathalie, appeared in two gowns that I can’t identify. Lovely, and certainly occasion appropriate, but not exciting enough to force me into the research necessary to unearth the designers ; ).

Queen Anne-Marie repeated her floral flowy gown from King Harald and Queen Sonja’s 80th birthday celebrations (among other appearances, she just loves this dress), and looks absolutely thrilled to be celebrating with her sister.

So what do you think of the guests? Elegant enough appearances for our most elegant princess?
