  1. Ce manteau de couleur prune comme les gants va à merveille à la princesse à l'occasion de cet anniversaire ; je ne vois pas très bien cette sorte de coiffe dans des motifs d'automne comme ses gants ?! Petits talons qui ont l'air confortables !

  3. I'm not feeling the love for Princess Benedikte's hat. Am I missing something? Her coat, scarf and brooch are lovely.

  5. I always love seeing Benedikte. She looks lovely. With the darker colors, I like the patterned hat and the peep of the bow at the collar. Beautiful pin. Always so classy.

  6. Classy as always. The color of the coat is different than most, yet lovely and almost matches the military hats. I'm not sure about her hat, cannot see it close enough to know what the pattern is, or just what it is. She is lovely as ever.
