  1. Si j'ai bien compris, c'était un party costumé, pour ne pas dire, déguisé!

  2. Oh my god, how very tasteless. Most of these outfits are cheap-looking or tacky, some bordering on sleazy.

    1. I wanted to say, when before there were comments, "bunch of useless degenerates", except for Maxima. I didn't dare then, but I dare now.

    2. My first impression was you can't buy taste with money but in looking at the pictures, I have to assume that this was some sort of dress up/costume party. But I did think here is a bunch of rich people with too much time on their hands... Pretty bizarre outfits.

  3. This is ridiculous. The world doesn't need to see very rich people looking quite so stupid in these troubled times. I believe HM Queen Maxima should have known better. The Greek 'royal' family which doesn't exist are just party goers who do nothing useful but seem to be some sort of celebrities.

    2. I have often wondered about the status of the Greek "royals".. They are really non existent at this point but still continue to call themselves King, Queen, Crown Prince,, etc...

    3. Who's the fig between Maxima and Marie-Chantal? I think this is a major faux-pas for Maxima, a reigning queen, er, wife of a king. Marie-Chantal will always look like the parvenue that she is. Papa Miller bought a useless title for his little girl. As for the Norwegians, what are they doing there? How can the Dutch people look up to their queen, and the Norwegian people to their crown prince and princess? This just proves that titles mean nothing. Then there are the 'have been' like the Kents, and the rest are wanna-be's that should have stayed in La La Land.

    4. fig - parvenue - useless title - have beens - wanna bees - Lizzie, charming as always, but not knowing Valentino, that's capital!
      Beth & Diana, where are you, this block is nothing without you both!

    5. I agree. Big mistake for Norway and Netherlands to be there or at least have these pictures published. What a waste of money. And normally I don't comment when the rich spent their money or what they spend it on, but this is ridiculous.

  4. I have often wondered, when Konstantin dies, will Pavlos be ex-king or what!! :)

    2. Interesting question. The Spanish and Belgian monarchs work hard, and so do Victoria of Sweden and Mary of Denmark, as crown princesses, even tho Mary is a princess only thru marriage. You don't see them having such tasteless bashes, and I am sure their vacations are well deserved.

      Delete
    3. Lizzie, obviously you haven't seen what the danish and swedish news write about their work ethic. Just to clarify the facts tell us that in scanadinavia Mette-Marit and Haakon work more then the one you here praise. So far i 2017 Mette-Marit and Mary have worked exactly just as much. Victoria a little less then the other two, but as we have seen the last few years while Mary have a long summer holiday, MM have several jobs during the summer. Like today participating on her mother in laws offical birthday celebration. And we who live in scandinavia remember bashes like this in both the swedish and danish royal house, so are we here taking about selective memory?

      Delete
    4. Lizzie, I agree with mette45. Especially crown prince Haakon i working more than most of the other royals that you have mentioned, but it is seldom shown here.
      After all this is primarily about fashion.

      Delete
    5. Dear "mette 45", do you really believe what the news are writing or telling the peasants???
      And b.t.w.: participating in Mother's official birthday celebration is really great work!

      Delete
    6. Rainha it's easy to facta check if the news are right. They use the royal calendar for their work. And by the way when Mary are on her mother in laws birthday it's work, but not MM? Every year Mary is on work during a family photo shoot in the summer, but I guess that's allowed as hard work ;) So always use facts for your assertion.

      Delete
    7. Sorry, "mette 45": I meant in general/and for all the Royals: "...assisting birthdays, celebrations, photo-shoots and so on..." This is not real "work" on my opinion. ;)
      True "work" is something very different. (for me)

  5. They're perfectly entitled to celebrate their birthdays with their friends and have a fancy dress theme if they want to. It looks like a group of friends having fun - good for them.

    1. Yes, they are - but flaunting one's wealth is tasteless, not to say vulgar. Is it any wonder monarchies - the Greek in particular - were abolished?

      Delete
    2. Have a private party by all means. Don't spread it all over social media showing how rich and tasteless they are. I am sorry that they thought we would be interested. It is completely vulgar and classless to think it's all a good laugh and look at us having fun .... Ugh, ugh ugh.

      Delete
    3. Do we know who posted the pictures? I doubt they all got together and said "let's post pictures of us all over the place" - they weren't posted for our benefit. I can't believe some of the comments on here...

  6. Tasteless and vulgar. No wonder the Greeks threw them out. How can Konstantin and Anne Marie accept this? That throne will never be given back...

  8. I am dazzled by the comments so far, from some regular posters who I know to be enthusiasts of royals and royal fashion! When aiming for whimsy and fantasy, it's hard to miss--and no one did, in my opinion! I think they all look zany and darling. I am a lot more disgusted by many sartorial choices they make in earnest, and with all seriousness. If you're looking for role models who've sworn a vow of poverty and humility, the New My Royals blog is the wrong place to find them! As for "wanna be celebrities," in my view, the royals are the real deal, and I highly doubt they'd exchange their golden crowns for a tinsel town halo!

    1. Precisely. It is also a triple celebration. There, for the "waste". This is a costume party, not much different from the ones we used to go to as kids, pretending to be princesses! It seems that we all are so afraid to do something fun, to be "politically incorrect," that we are less and less capable of accepting pure fun and clowning. I am sorry though that Princess Maria-Olympia did not have more self censorship given her title before posing . But then, that goes hand in hand with her new fashion career I guess ...Schade

    2. Liza, you are a great commenter and it is easy to see your sight of things. That's your right. But YOU brought the phrase "political incorrect", which is quite interesting. We ALL! LOVE! fashion here, this blog, parties... NOBODY does not! like parties, right? We are amused and do have controverse opinions about the Royals sometimes. Otherwise we would not have a look to this blog. But most of us are intelligent enough to look behind the royal curtains, and this is one of those "themes". Time will show the world the truth about some of them. (Surely you saw photos of parties, where the heads a are covered under animal-masks?)-
      And I've got another one: Do tell us something about Maria-Olympia's Fashion-career, please. It is interesting for this blog. With all respect. Viel Spass noch!

    4. O.k. then, Liza. :) Sorry.

      Welcome back, "CatchTheScoop"! So, you could not make it without the blog, we see? It's "spoken", Darling, not "spocken". What's your Fashion-comment then?

  9. Halloween? Maxima looks clownish with that head piece and so do most of them. Mette looks pretty, but is she wearing a monkey print?

  10. I see no harm. How fun! I love a great party. They are having a grand time. I hate the black, drab fiftieth parties we celebrate now and again with friends. I love letting loose with those near and dear and am glad the royals do as well.

  13. Feestje van "koninklijke hoogheden" die leven op kosten van een ander. Maxima vindt het interessant om met Valentino op de foto te gaan. Ik krijg de kriebels van dit soort mensen.

  14. What an useless waste of money. And of time. I wonder if at the end of that day they really feel fulfilled.

  15. Queen Máxima seems to have lost the plot: some days ago a fuchsia Brillo pad on her head, und now this.

  16. The Valentino monkey dress has do be a joke. The monkeys are hideous already, but the yellow spots make it look like the monkeys had poo-ed all over it. And Mette-Marit apparently decided that she needed this mini-dress altered to full length wrapping herself in that fabric from head to toe, and totally ruining the proportions of the dress (which were the only sensible aspect of it).

    I don´t know who the dude in the all-white suit is, but I´m absolutely appalled by seeing Olympia rubbing her thigh against him. As parents, I would stop that kind of vulgarness, 21st or not.

    1. Yes, one guest even topless, ha ha. Top-class. Go to see "Daily Mail". And guests like Rothschild, Hilton, Fuerstenberg... Some say, a "Illuminati-Party".

    2. The Daily Mail's pictures made this party seem vulgar and tasteless. I'm sure the DM played up that side of things, perhaps it wasn't as bad as those pictures made it seem. Still, these girls (the younger set) seem to be living a rather 'rich kids of instagram' life.

    1. The true problem are not tacky figures like Paris Hilton or that Hicks woman, but the fact that the Dutch queen (and king) mingles regularly with the super rich Greek tycoons (remember the wedding a few months ago). Those tycoons are for a big part responsible for the miserable economic situation in Greece because they don't pay taxes, while the Dutch tax payers (NL being one of the richer EU countries) are paying for Greece for several years now. Well, she seems to get off with everything and my sympathies for her have vanished several years ago, anyway.

    1. Yes, not a very wise move in my opinion, first cousins or not. Frederik and Joachim of Denmark are also first cousins of Pavlos, but they obviously have brains enough to not show up in that company.

    2. ¿Pretende usted hacernos creer que Frederik y Joachim son más responsables y tienen más cerebro que Felipe VI??? hahahaha, esa es buena.
      El Rey de España tiene casi la misma edad que Pavlos, han crecido juntos, pasaban las vacaciones juntos y estudiaron juntos, son más que simples primos y se ha visto obligado a ir, pero ha ido solo, sin Letizia, vestido formalmente y sin disfrazarse de payaso. Eso es todo.

  24. OK, some outfits go below good taste (mainly that woman without shirt and the pose seen here of Maria Olympia) but I cannot see why these pictures get such a rage out of you. Greek taxpayer are not paying anything, Maria Chantal comes from VERY VERY wealthy family, King Constantin has been successful businessman and so does Pavlos. They have enough money to celebrate by they own. Even Maria Chantal has her own business things (just to show she has something to do other than loafing). I do not feel the idea of costume party so bad. Is it so bad that we can see these pictures or what? I do not know how much such a party costs, but was any of you wailing when Rania´s 40 years party took 4,5 million dollars? That must have been really tax payers money. But we had no pictures to see it, that is different.

    Although I do admit that seeing Maria Olympia´s stupid way to pose makes my blood pressure rice every time. She looks so much like the focus of all idiocy and idleness of too rich youngsters.
