  1. Schöne Fotos.
    Das ist für mich royaler Stil. Von Kleidung bis Etikette.

  2. Rania takes a bit of a risk pairing lavender shoes with this beautiful, deep pink dress -- but somehow, I'm kind of ok with it :-D

  3. The queen looks like her best sparkliest self. Rania reminds us that whole edgy clothing is her signature, she looks fabulous is classic, flattering clothes. Her bag is amazing and the colour is great on her. Anne looks very sharp too.

  4. Curtsy looks ridiculous in modern times .

    1. I agree about the curtsy looking ridiculous. I don't know how they can take it so seriously.

    2. Agree. Something strange.
      I think this is a custom of the remnant when a woman wore a long dress.

    4. It looks awkward when wearing a short skirt. And it seems odd to combine it with a handshake.

    5. It seems odd (and off) to me that Anne, a royal princess by birth, has to curtsy to a queen who was a commoner, and who is so much younger than her.

    6. Agree, very ridiculous. I especially find it interesting that Rania is a commoner and Anne a royal. Yes, I know it is who Rania married. But I do find the whole "royal" "common" thing interesting.

    7. The curtsy looks respectful, as it always does when executed so flawlessly. Regardless of birth, Rania has been raised to a position above a princess. Anne would be the last person in the world to ignore this fact.

  5. Queen Rania's dress is superb, and good that she's not wearing stiletto heals or she'd tower over QE. I never realized that Princess Anne was so tall. So Anne curtsies to the younger Queen and King, Prince Al Hussein and the king would bow to QE, I presume. Would Rania curtsy to QE as her elder? Anyone? Thank you to a fun group.

    1. Prince Al Hussein, would bow to QE2. However, his parents would not - Monarchs don't bow/curtsy to other Monarchs.

    2. Monarchs do not bow or curtsey to other monarchs.

    3. Queens don't curtsy to each other, they are both equal in rank.

    4. Rania is wearing stilettos, just not very high ones.
      Anne curtseyed to the Jordanian king and queen because they are monarchs and she is not. Nothing to do with age. The crown prince would bow to QE, but his parents would not because they are of equal rank.

    1. I share your wish, Yumiko. May the friendship and goodwill between these two royal houses always remain strong!

  7. The lavender shoes look cheap and ruin the lovely dress.

    1. I love her dress but don't like the shoes too. I don't think they look cheap but simply not combined with the colour of the dress.

  8. Everything about Rania's dress is perfect -- from the style, the fit, the color and the length. But then she rarely misses. Anne's bow to the King and Queen of Jordan just doesn't seem right -- not the sort of thing done today nor would this couple expect this.

    1. You would wonder about how they still maintain this kind of etiquette, in particular amongst all the Royals themselves. They all curtsy to each other when meeting, even in private, depending on rank, of course. No monarch bows or curtsies to a fellow monarch, but those lower in rank all do. The guests from Jordan might not particularly have requested such an honour, but it is a matter of proper protocol as well. Princess Anne knows what is expected from her, and so does the young Prince; I'd assume.

  9. Love Rania' s dress, and the shoes just elevate this very clean line outfit to another level.

    1. You were very observant, indeed not looking good.

    2. O indeed! I didn't see it until you mentioned it. Looks unhealthy and painful.
      Does anyone know what it is or what she has?

      Delete
    3. Ja, idd. Zij draagt altijd handschoenen en nu heeft ze hele blauwe handen.
      Hft u goed opgemerkt.

    4. In Daily Mail they said that at Queen's age 92 a little knock sometimes can turn into severe bruises.

      Delete
    5. O yes, of course, she always wears gloves! And now that she doesn't... it looks really bad. Hopefully she does not have a lot of pain.

  11. The Princess Royal looks very striking in her green suit. Rania's shoes do not match her outfit. The kings tie is a little bright. Queen Elizabeth looks lovely in her dress.

  12. Rania is gelukkig heel normaal gekleed, soms heeft ze rare smaak. ANN? kan je niets prositiefs over zeggen,over haar outfit bedoel ik en haar kapsel.

  13. Beautiful reverence of Princess Anne !

  14. All the Royal Ladies look great. Pss Anne;s green suit looks stunning on her, have not seen her like this in a very long time.

  15. For the first time, I will say that Anne looks the best. Good color for her --Lovely and perfectly fitted suit and jewelry details. Rania's dress is beautiful but would have benefited from darker shoes that could have coordinated with the purse.

    1. Agree with you, Pine. Great colour and fit. I like Rania's dress but Anne wins it for me today---not often we can say that!

    2. I agree with both of you. Very seldom you can see Princess Anne dressed nicely but today she looks great. It is also the time I think to change the hairdo.

  18. It's a public statement.

    (Rania looks wonderful. Anne,the Princess Royal: which foot belongs to which leg?? What a curtsy...)

  19. The shoe takes the look in one direction and the purse takes it in another. I buy the dress with one or the other, but not both.
