Spam the Unique – Princess Eugenie’s 30th Birthday

It’s almost impossible for me to believe, but Princess Eugenie is turning 30 today. We know Eugenie likes to put the you in unique, right? She almost always has, at the least, one interesting accessory in every outfit. Some of her outfits can be described unique in every way, too.

Here she is at the last Ladies Day at Ascot, wearing a Bundle MacLaren “Elspeth” hat, which you can read more about at The Royal Hats blog. I love this look, which brings interest to her entire ensemble, and is a great color too.

Spam an Evening Gown – Maria Teresa Turns 64

Maria Teresa is turning 64 years young today. We know how MT loves a good gala gown, and she has done them proud during her long career as the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. Here Maria Teresa sparkles at the Dutch/Luxembourg State Visit in 2018.

Spam a Man – Prince Edward Turns 56

And officially makes me very old because I remember when he was the baby of the family. LiL pointed out that I missed his birthday and that just will not do.

He has developed a small reputation over the past few years for the snappy way he unveils plaques and cuts cakes, so let us watch as he shows that second skill off here. The Wessex duo visited the Tiptree Jam Company, and they made every minute of it fun. Looking pretty natty, too, Ed! Happy Birthday!

Spam the Ed photo of your choice, the sassier the better! (And, yes, that doodle is William but I don’t have one of Ed and the Windsor genes are strong ; )

Spam the Norwegian Family – Happy Birthday Astrid and Harald

Two of our favorite classic Norwegian royals have recently celebrated birthdays. On February 21st King Harald is 83, and his sister – the wonderful Auntie Astrid – was 88 on February 12. Let’s celebrate all the joy they have brought to royal watching by spamming our favorite photos.

My favorite Astrid is in full Norwegian mode, striding off to view the Nordic World Cup. Rock on with your winter self, Astrid.

But from the way back machine, I like this one of the gals, just hanging out.

Happy Harald, enjoying some sailing back in 2006. Sunshine and sea, a most excellent combination.

It’s good to have siblings through nine decades, right?

Spam a Musical Encounter

For those who don’t know, the Handbag is a Motown native. This girl loves her Barry Gordy styled music, and so do some royals.

Princess Christina of Sweden, anyone? Doesn’t she look just pleased as punch to meet the Supremes? Please check out Miss Ross’ hair – I think there is more than one royal person in this photo ; ).

Princess Margaret, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to know what to make of the fabulous Motown costume machine, which included in this case a fair amount of decolletage. Ah, well, Margo, they seem to be very interested in you!

Since not everyone is a Motown maven like me, I encourage you to spam your favorite royal and musician encounters in the comments, regardless of genre!
