  1. I enjoyed reading these articles. The Royal Christmas cards were all lovely. Princess Estelle cooking was such a hoot. I was amazed about the discovery of boxes galore of millinery feathers in the old barn. What a lucky find those people had!

  2. Lovely photos of the royal families, but why didn’t the Norwegian photographer move the young princess so she doesn’t look as though she has flowers growing out of her head…or is that a fascinator? 😉
