What, you didn’t think International Women’s Day made it out to Bhutan? Well, it did, and in its usual colorful fashion. Royal Bhutan Airlines has its first all women’s crew, and the Gyaltsuen posed with them to commemorate the day. I love this country more and more every day.

In Luxembourg, the Grand Duchess did her part for Women’s Day, standing up for survivors of abuse. MT has been bringing attention to this serious issue for years.


My favorite Queen was spotted charming my favorite Prince. Charles and Letizia attended the opening of ‘Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light’ at the National Gallery. Yes, hand kissing was on the agenda. Letizia’s dress was Carolina Herrera, according to Queen Letizia Style. I sort of wish she had worn the runway version shown at the link.

Queen Mathilde was almost as busy as the Countess of Wessex. She spent the week splashing her colorful fashion choices across her country. She attended a meeting on gender equality in Liège, and also hosted a lunch meeting for International Women’s Day.


Here are two for my Vickan in a side part ponytail and business suit file.

No business suits to be seen in Miami, where Madeleine continues to live her best life. She has taken to the beach in winter like the proverbial duck to water.


Princess Margriet displayed how the fashionable woman takes on biking! As she should know since she’s was born to it – both being fashionable and biking.


Albert turned 61 this week and I totally wish he had just gone for 61 of these rockets on his cake, but I suspect the fire department might have to be involved.
