  4. wow, Elisabeth - turning into a real stunner! That´s a gorgeous dress for a teenager: simple, cute and innocent and at the same time feminine, elegant and flattering. It´s not easy to dress young girls at that age but this is one of the best takes I´ve ever seen, and matching the king´s order of Leopold to boot.

  6. Elisabeth gets prettier, more graceful and confident each time we see her out and about. A lovely family. Mathilde's dress would be much better without the horizontal seam at the waist which kills the beautiful flower print. And I just cannot stand trumpet sleeves. Almost forgot: Gabriel is going to be the best looking male royal of his generation.

    1. Yes, I think you are right about the queen's dress, Elisabeth and Gabriel. That flower print is a pretty thing but not used as well as it could have been. The sleeves' trumpet is too over-powering in size, and the print would've made a nice peplum on a bodice. Or a little purse made with the print would be cute. The two boys have new suits- good!

    2. Definitely -Gabriel is so handsome! but I can't think of another royal male of his generation, those in his age range are all girls. Spain: girls - Holland: girls -
      Norway: Girl. Correct me, someone, if I'm wrong!

    3. Lizzie, there are Christian of Denmark and Sverre of Norway and as a "minor" Royal Claus Casimir of Oranje Nassau.

    4. Sorry, I did forget about Christian and Sverre - Gabriel is still the most handsome, I think.

  7. Elisabeth looks fantastic. Love the color, simple cut of the dress. Perfect dress for someone of her age. She's going to be a tall woman. Mathilde looks also very pretty.

  9. Lovely dresses. Cute princesses, and Queen Mathilde is beautiful. Prince Gabriel is taken after his Mother, and he is the handsome one in this nice family.

  10. The children have always been well dressed, in my humble opinion, the best dressed royal children

    2. I agree, Mathilde has done a much better job than any other royal mother of her generation in dressing the children. Classy but not stuffy (like the Cambridges - in my opinion).

  11. A very lovely and loving family. The boys look smart and the girls look very pretty in their contrasting pink/purple dresses. Elisabeth, in particular, looks stunning. She is growing jato a very attractive young lady.

    I like the colour and style of Matilde's dress and think her hat is very elegant - must admit I'm not totally convinced by the splash of flowers on waist and sleeves.

  12. Franny, those were going to be my words - a lovely and loving family! The interaction between the young people is charming.
    Mathilde looks great and Elisabeth looks amazing - it's a perfect dress for her age. Elegant but not too sophisticated. I'm very impressed.

  13. The children look lovely, and they are all growing up so fast. Both of the girls are beautifully and appropriately dressed, they look really lovely.

    Can't say I am a fan of Mathilde's dress, but I reckon Maxima would love those sleeves!
