CP Mary, CP Mathilde and CP Marie Chantal looked extremely elegant today.
CP Maxima and CP Mette Marit disappointed me. They used to wear much better. I hope they improve it this evenning

everyone looked superb. none of the ladies dissapointed me at all. those dresses yesterday were so incredible, i can't really decide who wore it better. among my favourites are rosario nadal and marie chantal with similar black designs, mary (i have always loved her engagement gown) and maxima with that really flatering sparkling brown gown. from the older generation, sonja and maria teresa definetely won the race. i felt wuite sorry for mette marit. although her dress was quite "difficult" to wear, it would have suit her much more if it was in another colours. it would have been a great difference if it was in pastels, for example. she always glitters with soft colours.

today, however, she was one of the best dressed ones in my opinion. that hat was amazing and accentuated her traces a lot, and at the same time made a great contrast wth the black-blue outfit. wonderful, really. mary's hat although she re-used it, looked as if it was new with the addition of the flower matching the dress. the same for maxima, with the idea of combining the foulard and the skirt and with the same tones of orange for the hat, purse, shoes and the blazer. the swedish sisters and mathilde looked incredible as well, as feminine and appropiate as always.

i wonder where is rosario today. i'm sure she wore something magnificent... :)

Thank you for the great pictures. CPss Mary looks wonderful. I love that she's wearing the Danish colours. She's really glowing.

I just saw the first images from the concert. Siliva wears a new dress and the huge Braganca tiara, Victoria in white and the baden fringe, and MAdeleine wear the pink dress from Frederiks wedding or one very similar

I thought Queen Beatrix was going to be there today -- any sighting of her?

Can anyone post those gorgeous pictures of Mathilde without the watermarks? I would be so grateful. She looks absolutely angelic with that headpiece.
