Royal of the Week – Princess Benedikte

A Classic Edition Princess of the highest order, Princess Benedikte is our current royal of the week. Post your favorite ensemble, gif, hat or whatever from her many years of Princessing. This is a royal who gives you lots and lots of room for choice.

It was difficult for me, but I finally decided I would just go with a recent best, which was her appearance at her sister, the Queen’s, birthday last year. It will have to tide us over since the fabulous 80th birthday celebrations for Daisy have been postponed (sob).

Royal of the Week – Countess of Wessex

Let’s remember the good times with Sophie, shall we? I know she has taken an interesting turn, sartorially, in recent years. She still has a lot of high points, and she most certainly deserves a little love here at the Handbag. She soldiers on, like the trouper she is.

So here we go. Post your favorite hat, outfit, bijoux, or gif. Here is mine. Glamorous Sophie at Charlene and Al’s wedding.

Of course, we can’t forget the classic cake-won’t-cut gif.


Updated: She must have heard us talking about here, because she just released this public service announcement. (Note the videographer!)


Royal of the Week – Crown Princess Mary

H/T to Aussie Girl for this suggestion. Here is your royal of the week, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. Post your favorite photos of her, in day or evening wear – and if you have a favorite Mary hat, throw that in the mix. Here is my favorite – elegant Mary in an all white royal lady pantsuit, worn for a 2011 visit to her home country, Australia.

OH, heck – if you have a cute gif, throw that in too. We all need cheering up!
