This Week’s Extras

The Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg were in London this week to watch their youngest son, Prince Sebastien, participate in the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at Buckingham Palace. He is a member of the 1st Batallion Irish Guards and acted as flag-bearer in the ceremony.

Queen Margrethe disembarked the royal yacht Dannebrog in Haderslev Harbor on Thursday (to take up summer residence at Gråsten Castle) in a white straw hat I think is new. I really like its pairing with her pink dress

And better late than never… on May 4, Princess Firyal wore a lovely pink sidesweep disk hat to the Central Park Conservancy’s 34th Annual Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon in New York

 Royal Hats

Wonderful new portraits of the Belgian royal family were released this week

King Philippe shared some of his portraits of his late uncle, King, Baudouin, and they are rather impressive

Lovely family snaps shared by the Norwegian monarchy, taken for Crown Prince Haakon’s 45th birthday

We end the week with a sweet snap released from Kensington Palace of charming young prince who celebrates his fifth birthday today.

  1. Is pink especially on-trend this season, or is it just a coincidence that many of your new design favorites happen to be this color, HQ? Those loops on the Vivian Blooms percher are indeed wonderful.
