Like, I said a very grand amount of tiaras. There are however, a couple that I think would look great on Stéphanie, I do have to be reminded that she is a Countess. They may have a tiara in their vault, waiting to sit on Stéphanie’s head. No matter, I’m still choosing the tiaras!
The Congo Diamond Necklace Tiara is a good pick, it’s been a Luxembourgish tradition, for mostly every royal bride to wear the tiara. The Belgian Scroll Tiara, which was the tiara worn by Josephine-Charlotte for her wedding photos. I do really like that piece.
Grand Duchess Marie Adelaide's Tiara, my possibly FAVOURITE tiara of the whole collection, I love the design. Next, the floral tiara, it’s a nice piece, and I can see it on Stéphanie’s head at her wedding.

Prinsjesdag (or Prince’s Day in English) is the day on which the reigning Monarch of the Netherlands. In this case, it would be Queen Beatrix. Addresses a joint session of the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives. In the 18th century, Prinsjesdag was the country’s most popular public holidays and was celebrated on March 8th for the then Prince’s of Orange’s birthday.
Beatrix wore her usual hat attire, and the dress I very much like on her. It’s looks somewhat of what the Duchess of Cambridge wore in January of this year. I know, it’s not the same, but it does look similar.
Laurentien wore her usual flower in the front of her head, and a matching dress to go with it. I do in fact, like the earrings and the orange-ish sash really stands out.
Maxima must love me today – I love the colour pink, and I love what she wore. I do in fact don’t like how the top is sort of separated from the skirt. But, the hat does have the same style two years ago – but, I do like it.
Margriet was in attendance, I didn’t find any pictures, except this one. Although, better ones are sure to come. From what it looks like, she looks amazing. I just love it when she comes out in offical events, she always looks amazing.
Sadly, this year we didn’t have Princess Mabel join us. Mabel possibly due to the fact that Prince Frisco is still in hospital after the avalanche, and she really hasn’t really appeared in many official events.
Today was the opening of Parliament in Sweden. And most countries do this, such as the UK, who has it in spring, and Denmark who celebrates it, I’m sure every 2nd of October. No matter! We’ll worry about Sweden right now.
I see their going for a black and white colour code. I still like what they wore, although, I do wish Madeleine and Victoria would wear hats in the front of their face. But, nothing like this:
This made my worst list of 2012. I think everyone agrees with me on this one, though.
Over the last while, two British Royal tours for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee began. While, in Denmark the Crown Prince and Princess went to Brazil, for a royal tour.
The Royal tour of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took them to Malaysia, Singapore, Soloman Islands and Tuvalu. Many things happened to the royal couple while they were there.
Catherine made her first foreign speech, she wore beautiful clothing (like the middle outfit above), they got some new gifts, Catherine flexed her muscles, William made a speech, and Catherine danced.
Catherine made many different outfit changes, she was given a dress (the pink one on the left), she wore traditional necklaces, and headgear and had some great hair.
William and Kate finished their tour on the 19th of September. They will make their way back to England and chillax there for the rest of the year, probably.
For the Crown Prince and Princess, they went to Brazil on the 16th and will be in Brazil until the 21st of September.
The Earl and Countess made another Jubilee visit. This time though, to my home nation, Canada. They went to Iqaluit, Nunavut which is the farthest north that any royal(s) have been. They also went to Toronto, where they attended the Toronto International Film Festival (The Black dress where she went to).
