Have no idea- they seemed to be the only couple together along with the Norwegian royals. Why were Mathilde and Martha Louise together also; were they short of men at the party?

I think ... after much reflection ..... the thing with Mabel and her dresses, is, that her face.

Her face is not what I would call photogenic .... and to cope with that, or put that in a good light, is a tremendous challenge.

I fear, she will always get the fashion wrong ...

She was tanned because the whole family was in the Caribbean island of Antigua on vacation!

I have to agree with your comments. It looked to me as though she didn't like the dress down to the ground so she safety pinned the hem to her knickers. I don't think it suited the event at all. I'm not a great fan of Madelaine though so I don't think it matters what she wears.

I don´t understand why the couples were seperated while they were entering the room. For example Philippe of Belgium escorted Madeleine while Mathilde was walking with Märtha-Louise is there a reason?

At the gala Princess Astrid of Belgium wore a large necklace I have never seen before...

Does anybody have information on that? Is it a Habsburg heirloom?

Not Habsburg but Savoia-Aosta

The Habsburgs hardly have any jewels left since they were forced in exile. In contrary to the German states which agreed very generous transfers to their former ruling families, the Habsburgs were more or less ruïned.

The jewels worn by the Archduchess Lorenz of Austria-Este, Duchess of Modena née Princess Astrid of Belgium all are heirlooms out the House of Savoia-Aosta.

The mother of Archduke Lorenz was the Archduchess Robert of Habsburg-Este, Duchess of Modena née Princess Margherita of Savoia-Aosta.

It are her jewels that are now worn by Astrid. Various diademes, necklaces and other items.

Victoria has said in interviews that she´s not really interested in clothes and fashion, that´s the reason she doesn´t put that mutch focus on clothes.

Is this the same party that Prince Haakon hosted, or were there two private parties that night?

I did see one pic of P. Haakons' party, that "clued me in" of that event.
