Actually I´m not a fan of plucking eyebrows, but sometimes those damn hairs grow on parts of the forehead where they shouldn´t and the whole eyebrow is getting out of shape... And in the case of Carl-Philip it looks as if he would just have one long eyebrow but not two...
Yes, Victoria has a very characteristic face...even as baby she looked like a (little) Victoria but Madeleine has changed a lot since her birth, through child-years and teenage years and still now.

Hmmm....yea...Carl Phillip has always annoyed me...he has a unibrau! My stars...it's very odd. He should try waxing. Hahah..waxing. Victoria looked nice.

Victoria and Silvia had interesting sashes. THey looked like the Jordanian flag..at first I thought that Rania and Silvia traded sashes...did they? Did Abdullah and Carl Gustav switch too? Only the king didn't wear a sash...were they new? They looked very non-standard.

Note: Rania's first suit...

Now when you say it
The King did not have sash, why was that?
Is this common?

Instead of a sash he´s got the chain around the shoulders, do you see it? I would think that that´s the male version of the highest grade of the Jordanian order. Prince Carl Philip has only the second best ( the dark green) and then a sash. Queen Silvia and CP Victoria got the highest grade as well but they´re female so they´ve gotten the saches.

To compare; The Danish "Elephant order" also has these chains but then it seems that you are able to choose an ordinary sash with a little elephant at your left hip or a chain with an elephant on it ( both male and female) (take a look in the Danish section; Pr. Alexandra wore a black velvet dress on New Years eve, there the chain is easy to see! Or in "New official portraits" of Pr. Joachim and Pr. Alexandra) During the state vistit to Finland both King C-G and Queen Silvia wore a Finnish order with a chain!

A can´t say I liked Queen Ranias dress at the gala dinner, and not the tiara either, to bad-I was hoping for something really good! Victoria and Silvia always look good but I´m getting spoiled here on LTR with all nice pictures- I WANT MORE all the time! I´m not so fond of Madeleine, (exept some times like on Haakon and MetteMarits wedding when she looked SO pretty&#33 so I won´t say anything about her! Thanks for all the pictures!!!

Yeah, that´s the problem with those Royal boards and photo agencies ...you want to see more and more, always the newest pics, and when a pic is just one week old it´s really, really old for an internet-spoiled Royal-addict. The "worst" thing are the Royal weddings. On such days there are so many pics that your right index finger hurts because you have saved so many pics on your hard disk and posted in Forums...and after the wedding you expect furthermore so much pics :o
Yes, being a Royal watcher is really exhausting sometimes...but I´m lovin it :woot:

1) Queen Silvia and Queen Rania at an art school

2) (pix are from imagescandinavia.com )

3)

4) visiting a mosque

5)

With respect to the sashes, one does not wear a sash and chain together. It is one or the other. Hence, this is why the King is only wearing the chain (which is more formal than the sash). Also, Queen Silvia and Crown Princess Victoria are not wearing Jordan's highest order, although King Carl is. The highest order is reserved for sovereigns and the Consort of the Jordanian monarch. Thus Victoria and and Silvia are wearing the 2nd highest honour, while Carl Philip and Princess M. are wearing the 3rd.

I like Rania´s dress. In spite of the "exception" -in form of the terrible suit on her arrival day...she has proven that she´s the "fashion queen"...but she´s amazingly skinny for a woman, who is mother of three children. :o
I agree...Victoria´s dress is awful...it looks like a mix of a nightgown and a plastic bag...I hope we will never see it again (at least not at nobel-prize award )
It seems as if the return-dinner without tiaras and without Madeleine becomes tradition...at the german state visit they have handled it the same way.

I think Rania looks sickly thin, although it isn´t as bad as it was a year ago,
and its a shame. She is beautiful but imo she would have looked better with some meat on her bones.
I´ve never seen her on tv or irl, but she seems very kind and friendly!
beautiful smile...

(same comment in Middle Eastern Royalty forum)

Queen Rania looks to me, to be out of sorts, on this picture of below.

In her earlier blue outfit, she also appeared to me to be different.
Any rumours going around?

Victoria's dress is a bit misshapen for her. The dress sort of looks like a bag that was just put on Victoria and cut to length! She wore such a great lilac dress the first dinner and now this one ... :(

A jordanian prince for Sweden-what a nice idea Could be great for the better understanding of middle eastern countries and european countries...yes, I know there is already Daniel Westling...but I keep on dreamin´ So in my personal ranking for Victoria there´s firstly prince Nicholaos, then Daniel Collert and then Ali...or maybe Ali on the second place, I´m not sure.

Ladies !!!!
How would you go around explaining that the "guest of honour" was outdone/outshone by the 'next in line' !!!???!!!!

Really!!!
I thought this informal 'review committee' (ie: this MB) would have known that !!!!


I wonder how intensive/extensive the 'kitchen cabinet' and spy system is at the palace, to ensure that the guest stands forever in the limelight of glory. Comments are requested ????

What do you mean with "covered up"? The dress from the banquet at Drottningholm on Tuesday didn´t show more skin.
To say something positive about Victoria last night...I think "the Victoria" in the dress looked so great like (almost) never before. We´ve talked about the thing that Victoria looks always like Victoria (in the opposite to Madeleine) but I think she´s getting more beautiful day by day...her face has more "contour" now and doesn´t look anymore like a chubby teenage face or like the emaciated one of an anorexic girl.

You are right about that when I took a second look
Maybe because the dress is in one color it feels that it's very covered up

Its to much of a glowing color in this dress..

Yes, I know what you mean..it reminds me of a dress for barbie dolls (in every way...the colour, the frills at the end of the dress, the cut...), but maybe Barbie´s dress would have been a little bit sexier
