Duchess Kate wasn’t the only royal lady out and about on January 24, several other ladies were as well. Queen Margrethe and Crown Princess Mary were at a State Banquet; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall was hosting a reception for Equestrian Olympians; and Queen Maxima opened an education exhibition.
Starting on January 24, the President of Iceland, Gudni Johannesson, was in Denmark for a State Visit. The first night ended with a State Banquet at Amalienborg Palace. Queen Margrethe showed up in a green lace gown rocking the Naasut Tiara (which was a gift from Greenland for her 40th jubilee in 2012, and is made out of gold, re-purposed from coins, and diamonds) and the sash and star of the Order of the Falcon (Iceland).
I kind of like the green lace, which is weird for me since I typically don’t like lace.
Crown Princess Mary wore a navy Oscar De La Renta tiered skirt with a lace top and her Diamond and Ruby Necklace Tiara. Both she and Crown Prince Frederik wore the sash and star of the Order of the Falcon (Iceland).
I’m not feeling this look, but it’s not terrible.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall hosted a reception for the British Equestrian teams who took part in the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Camilla welcomed Equestrians Spencer Wilton, Anne Dunham, Sophie Wells, Kitty King, Gemma Tattersall, Sophie Christensen, William Fox Pitt and Natasha Baker to Clarence House for the reception.
I don’t know why Camilla is in a black half-velvet dress. Is she in mourning?
Queen Maxima was at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht in The Hague on January 24 to open the national education exhibition. Maxima visited several stands, including the Music in the Class and Education in money business stand where she rang a gong.
While I love the combination of brown and green here, I dislike when skirts are too long and cover high boots like this (especially when the boots are slouchy). It’s just a pet peeve of mine.
