We know Vickan was Lawn Bowling in Australia, but what on earth happened? Did she hit someone? Break a car window? Whatever it was, she was obviously tickled.

Do you have a favorite photo of a royal sporting mishap?

Rocking The Royal Lady Hard Hat

Will and Kate visited the Tata Steel plant in Port Talbot, South Wales on Tuesday, February 4th, and looking at her looking fabulous in a hard hat got your friendly neighborhood hofdames to thinking: What is it about Royal Ladies that makes them look so good in hard hats? Maybe you can tell us.

Since Kate is the one that kicked this whole question off, let’s take a look at her first. The other day in Wales, in Sunderland in 2018, and her first Royal Lady hard hat experience in Denmark, right after her wedding in 2011.

Not to be out done, here are some other British royal ladies over the years. Look at Anne. You know she just single handedly provided power to Hucknall for the next six months.

The British ladies certainly make an effort, but I’d be willing to bet Vickan wears more hard hats than anyone. It seems she’s good for at least a half dozen hard hatted engagements a year.

So what do you think of our choices? Do you have a favorite photo of royal ladies donning hard hats/safety gear? Drop them in the comments, and be sure to let us know why you think they look so good!


Nobels Countdown – Queen Silvia & CP Victoria

After taking a trip down memory lane last week, this week we are all about the here and now (or the soon to be here and now…).

For this post, we are talking about what we would like Queen Silvia and Crown Princess Victoria to wear to this years Nobel Ceremony, both the big event on December 10th and the King’s Dinner on the 11th.

Give us your hopes, wishes, predictions and wild-eyed guesses for what tiaras, jewels and gowns Sils and Vickan will wear for these two events.

Tiaras: For me I’m hoping for a Cameo appearance on Sils, and for Vickan to break out the Connaught Rubies.

Gowns: not real picky about gowns, but would love a repeat of Vickan’s gown for Maddie’s wedding.

With bonus Estelle and Daniel!

So…what are you guys wishing for?


Battle of the Tiaras – It’s a Fringe Off!!!

The inspiration for the last few Defense of the Tiaras was the Sweden / South Korea State Dinner, held on June 14th. While Queen Silvia was radiant in the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara, it was the tiaras of her daughters, and daughter-in-law, that prompted this series.

This week we are putting the fringe / fringe-adjacent tiaras of the Swedish princesses up against each other.
