  1. What a gorgeous color on Victoria! it suits her well. The shade of green looks lovely on Silvia and her coat is very stylish. Sofia is another royal lady who looks fabulous in red. Max's outfit is okay and very much her style but seems too busy with extra material that just hangs. And the sleeves..just no! And when did Estelle get so tall. She is a lovely young lady.

  3. Victoria in a lovely combination in a wonderfull colour.
    The Swedish royal ladies all three in strong colours and very good fitting coat-dress combinations.
    Love it, classic and good.
    Queen Maxima tried too hard: way over the top for midday (and a bit too tight),

    1. Yes, Estelle and her mini-handbag just completely stole the show.

  6. All ladies look splendid, except the Dutch queen, in an IMO horrible and moreover wrinkled outfit. I hope she improves during the rest of the outfit. What I don´t understand is why she continues wearing Natan.

    1. Helemaal eens met je Veerle. Vreselijke outfit. Zo stijlloos. Dat belooft wat voor de rest van het bezoek.

    2. It hasn't been confirmed yet it is Natan, not even on the Dutch websites.

  7. Toute ma prĂ©fĂ©rence va en faveur de Victoria vĂȘtue d'un combinaison veste/robe dont la couleur la met bien en valeur ; Silvia est superbe dans la couleur verte mais si Sofia porte toujours Ă  merveille le rouge monochrome, j'aurais bien vu un bandeau qui aurait mieux ramenĂ© ses cheveux en bataille ; je ne sais de quel couturier est tout l'ensemble de Maxima mais cela ne l'avantage point mĂȘme si je sais qu'elle adore ce style ; la princesse Estelle est toute mignonne dans cette robe en tweed avec un petit sac Ă  mains qui va avec !

    I agree completely with your comments. To mee the best dressed are Queen Silvia and Princess Estelle. Crown Princess Victoria looks good in that magenta pink ensemble. I like it especially when she is wearing the jacket too. Princess Sofia recycles a red dress which I liked the first time she worn it and I still do. Queen Maxima's dress is terrible. Too much fabric for one dress. The fabric is wrinkled in the back of her dress. It doesn't fit at all and the color is too pale for her. The sleeves are too wide.

  9. I feel a little sorry for Estelle, she's so young, wouldn't it be more fun for her being that little girl that she is.......I don't know, I just try to think a little! A

    1. The Dutch King is Estelle's godfather, that's most likely why she was included in the group photo. I think it was a nice touch. *Regina

    2. Do not try too hart. Watch a pic on the site of the Royal Court of Sweden. The one where she greeted King Willem Alexander, her Godfather. Siv

    3. Regina, Siv: I know that the Dutch King is one of her godparents, but still, a little girl like Estelle could say Hi to him away from the cameras, she should be in school or playing with her friends and not stand with a handbag in hand looking like a grown up.......A

    4. Estelle appears to be enjoying herself and looks great. Don't imagine a day off school will hurt her!!

    5. My goodness, 'A', this is a big occasion for Estelle. She doesn't get to see Willem-Alexander very often. Let her enjoy being part of it. *Regina

  12. Nice to see Estelle there with her godfather, King Willem-Alexander, who co-piloted the plane. MĂĄxima, of course, is over-the-top in a wrinkly mess of a dress. Beautiful dress & color on Victoria. *Regina

  13. Stunning color for Victoria. The cut and style looks wonderful on her. One of her best looks for sure.
    Silvia in green looks lovely. She suddenly looks so fragile, hope she's okay.
    Sofia...it is so great to see this Lilli Jahilo's dress. This style is timeless and very flattering on her. Also I like the color very much.

  15. Victoria looks fabulous, vibrant color, perfect length and fit. I liked Sofia’s dress very much the first time, and it’s worth a rewear, she looks very pretty and has a lovely figure. Queen Sylvia looks appropriate and within her style. Oh Maxima!! As usual too much, I don’t like her dress at all, puffed sleeves, enormous belt, sort of uneven hem which I don’t hate, but it doesn’t look right with this fabric, gathering in the bust area, way too many things thrown together, at first I thought that it was a trench coat style dress, but somehow the designer decided to throw in a few extras, not to mention how wrinkled it is, I know that she was sitting during the flight, but even regular folk wear a comfy outfit and change if needed before arrival. Finally I don’t think that there is anything wrong bringing Stelle, is not like she is doing anything that would prevent her from enjoying her childhood, to me is like bring you child to work day, and she looks content.

  16. Beautiful outfit the RL are wearing, strong colors. So nice to see Estelle there as well. Looking forward to the dinner tonight. css

  17. All of them look splended and happy. CP Victoria and Prince Daniel are proud parents of little sunshine Princess Estelle. Love how Princess Estelle is welcoming her godparents.

  18. Maxima/Natan is a terrible combination. Doesn't she have a stylist? and a hairdresser? if not, is about time she gets one!

  19. Year after year only Queen Maxima manages to show up in a wrinkled outfit. Part of it is because her outfits are too tight. Cp Viktoria and Q Silvia look great, Ladyofthemanor

  20. OMG Estelle is just ADORABLE!! She's the STAR of this show!!

  21. Prince Daniel looks very tired, especially on picture 6 and 7.
    Hopefully he is doing reasonably well.

  22. Wow! What gorgeous jewel bright outfits from the Swedish Royal ladies. Queen Silvia's emerald green is fabulous and easily wins it for me but Crown Princess Victoria is a close second with that great purple. Princess Sofia's red dress is great as well and I like Princess Estelle's great gingham dress. Queen Maxima is disappointing pale ion comparison before you get to the flounces and frills of the dress. I like the hat but the dress is too much. Great photo of Estelle and her godfather.

  23. What a wonderful almost family reunion (well, maybe the Dutch and Swedish royals are actually related)! The Swedish royal ladies all look wonderful--Princess Estelle is my style favorite. Her little purse is perfect (I think some of our adult royal ladies might like it enough to buy it for themselves)! The photos of Estelle and King W-A are so sweet--its wonderful to see how Estelle's godparents are close with her. As for Queen Maxima--oh dear... I just cannot say anything positive about her dress. Again, with the silly sleeves (I hope its a passing fancy for her). Another issue I have is Maxima chose head to toe in such a blah color--she looks so marvelous in bright colors, exactly the bright colors of the Swedish ladies. So disappointing--but there is still more days to come and, hopefully, a huge bling blowout state dinner to come too. I do like her hat style though.

  24. The royal ladies all look lovely, well groomed and elegant. Pss Estelle, is growing up so lovely, she is a real gem.

  25. The Swedish Royal ladies look beautiful, Maxima is wearing a semi tent dress with so much material you could hide 25 people under the skirt and sleeves and we won't even talk about that ugly uneven hemline! Jane

    ReplyDelete
  26. Each lady won in style highlights, then there was Maxima with her over the top dress of so much material it made her look somewhat like a circus performer ready to fly away with a gust of wind. Otherwise, her hair and makeup were spot on during the trip. Anne

  27. All those nasty comments about Queen Maxima are deplorable. She always looks lovely and I think those negative comments are because deep down, the people writing those comments are just envious.
