Even though she only has one tiara I think her tiara is very very pretty and goes with everything.

The Prince of Liechtenstein was there...you can see him in the back of the group picture of all the monarchs together. I think he was the only one from his family though.

I'm not sure if this has been asked, but in that group photo of the younger royals - why is Princess Mary's "sash" worn on the other side unlike the other female royals? Is there a significance to this?

Well said. She looked elegant. Plus she has a million watt smile. Wear shades when looking at these photos, people!

I love the group picture of younger generation of royal families. And for the first time to realize how tall Willem-Alexander is...even taller than Philippe and Haakon.

I don`t really agree with all the critic against MM. I think she looks wonderful. Ok, she has a fuller figur than most of the other princesses, but in my opinion she looks happy and glorious anyway.

I think this was discussed elsewhere and it was said that Mary is wearing a Danish order and the others are wearing other order(s) - and that they were all worn correctly - just differently.

For me it has nothing to do with a fuller figure than when HRH was pregnant, I think Mette-Marit looks just great but her choices in evening wear were (for me) no where near as good as what they could have been.

Mind you I bet they are blooming expensive :)

Great pictures Amber. The tiara looks much nicer from the side IMO. The picture en profil, of Maxima is beautiful!

I'm afraid I am little late:o but here it goes

Happy Birthday to His Majesty King Carl Gustaf!

I would like to THANK all that managed to stay online covering such a marvellous event... I will take centuries to see this thread in detail but for what I've managed to see until now I was WOW (Princesses looked like Queens, Queens looked so young that looked like Princesses) :) ... then I read your comments and I'll have to check the entire thread again

I've made an humble Slideshow from photos I scanned from Hola magazine, but due to server problems I wasn't able to post it before.



Enjoy!

Regards,

mtbcm :)

I think Mary's figure looked beautiful - Mette-Marit's figure is quite a bit fuller and she and Maxima look chunky next to Mary.

I've only just checked into this thread, Rym looks wonderful. I don't like the blue suit she wore but her evening dresses seem spectacular. More importantly though was the fact that she looked fantastic and her husband seemed perfectly proud to let her shine.

right..luckely our royals got quite a few tiara's ...
but on of the most beautiful ones IMO is in Mary's hands though..and that's the Ruby tiara (or whatever it's called.... *wishes it would have stayed in sweden...*)

I didn't like the dresses of Mathilde and Mette-Marit.

It seems awfully rude to King Carl Gustaf and his birthday to fill up his birthday thread with complaints about the Windsors not showing.

There's a thread in the British forums called The Windsors and Europe which discusses the relationship the Windsors have (or don't have) with their European royal cousins.

If you wish to join the discussion there, feel free to drop by but please let's keep this thread confined to the discussions of the birthday events themselves.

Thanks

I'm late to the game but firstly thank you to all the pictures, clips etc. they are all fantastic:

Best Dressed on the Saturday night:
Queen Sofia-show looked stunning and showed every Royal woman there how it should done
Rosario- Gorgeous dress and her hair looked fantastic
Rym- Wow! She looked spectacular, so incredibly glamorous, she was glowing (and how proud did Prince Ali look of his wife?!)
Maxima- Gorgeous dress with lovely jewellery

The Daytime Outfits-
Mathilde- Wow, simply stunning not much to say as all you need to do is look at the photos.
Victoria- Nice colours and a great jacket
Madeline- Beautiful outfit, slightly mature for her but itwas well cut and she looked marvellous nonetheless.

The Gala
Rosario- Loved her dress, it looked so delicate
Rym- I liked the Medieval theme she'd chosen, clearly a style she likes!

Overall I didn't like the gala dresses and thought that most had been better dressed on the Saturday night.
