This Week’s Extras

Last Sunday, Her Majesty Margaretha, Custodian of the Romanian Crown, attended a Thanksgiving service dedicated to Romania at the Queen’s Chapel of Savoy in London. Margaretha wore an ecru straw button based percher trimmed with purple and cream feathers and a cream veil. Back on December 5, Margaretha and her sisters marked a year anniversary of their late father’s passing.
