Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married Daniel Westling 10 years ago today, on June 19, 2010. Wow! Ten years on, Victoria and Prince Daniel have a good string of events and initiatives under their belts, as well as two lovely children: Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar. To celebrate their ten year anniversary, the royal court […]
Continuing my year in review series, even though it’s nearing the end of February (hangs head in shame), let’s take a look back at the big events and achievements for the Duchess of Cambridge from 2019. Kate receives Royal Victorian Order On April 29, William and Kate’s 8 year anniversary, The Queen announced that she […]
When I came back to blogging, I made a decision that I wasn’t going to cover other royals in the way I had been in the past, that I was going to focus on Kate unless something really interesting happened, so I haven’t been doing royal round ups because they were essentially made redundant. But […]

Tiaras! This year’s Nobel Prize Ceremony and Banquet had so many pretty tiaras, and so many Swedes on display: King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, Princess Madeleine, Chris O’Neill, and Princess Christina. Links to watch: the ceremony, and the banquet.
It’s that time of year again! The time where we get car photos of royals in tiaras arriving to the annual diplomatic reception. Kate Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall both brought the bling to their car shots, while Prince William and Prince Charles were… there.
Now we know why Princess Sofia‘s Wedding Tiara has been MIA for the last several tiara events – she’s been tinkering! At the Representationsmiddag, or Official Dinner, last night, November 23, Sofia debuted a re-vamped look to her wedding tiara, sporting a diamond-only version.
I have not been keeping up with Queen Maxima‘s schedule, so I was delightedly surprised for these photos of Maxima attending a State Banquet in Portugal to come across my Twitter feed last week. I’m also including photos of Maxima’s other outfits during the State Visit.
