Maxima also has nannies and probably dressmakers who might have a large hand in the clothes.

I don't mind the dresses, except that a little brighter shade would have been nicer. They are better suited for a funeral/memorial service than a wedding, especially with the dark tights and shoes. I have a feeling that the girls may prefer to dress alike for formal occasions; especially if the two little ones look up to their older sister, who will one day be queen. It's very likely, not to mention that the girls are old enough to at least have an idea of what they like to wear.

The Danish kids went with their mother Mary to see the musical 'El Dorado - The search for the golden city'.

Why not? He doesn't have to fuss, but I assume that in this day and age, he is involved and has an opinion on what his own children wear.

[QUOTE=Molly2101;1606746]
"This is the same discussion that happens on other forums about Lady Louise's clothes and the constant blame on Sophie. They say that it shouldn't just be solely Sophie's blame, but I can't see Edward REALLY picking out his children's clothes. The same for Willem Alexander and his daughter's. "

Why not? - men have been trained to change a diaper and they have been known to actually been able to figure out how to take their own offspring to and from kindergarten. Why shouldn't they care and have an opinion about the way their own children are dressed?


[QUOTE=Archduchess Zelia;1606765" To some extent I agree, but I (sadly) also have yet to meet a father who actually cared a little about colour-coordinating, straightening up his children's clothes and whatnot. I tend to think that men are more practical when it comes to dressing their children (at least that's my own experience ). "

I have the exact opposite experience; have three daughters all of whom still turn to their father for more exiciting clothes shopping. I have kept them clean and fixed their hair; but their dad supported them in all their rather experimental style of dressing themselves. It wasn't sloppy or anything, just different. I have certainly had my share of comments like "that's such an [I]interesting[/I] combination XX is wearing today" (read = you're the mother for god's sake!! You dress them!).

I guess what bothers me is that I really find it surprisingly old-school that in this day and age most people still find dressing children to be the sole responsibility of the mother. It need not be - that's just what I want to add to the discussion.

Aren't we in every respect past the thinking that dressing children is solely taken care of by the mother?
That's because we dad's are wise enough to leave it to the children, especially the girls, to dress themselves once they are more than 2½ years old.

We have no sense of fashion, we can only distinguish between twelve colors at the very most - and we have been told by our wives, ever since the stork brought the children: "What are you doing? Let me dress them".
So what's uppermost in the drawer, that's what the children will wear that day.

Going by the way the AAA's dress sometimes you may be right.....let's blame WA for this fashion blunder

Seriously, You are spot on.that was blunt but accurate in many instances.

I can assure that that can't be blamed on WA.
They would be wearing all sorts of things, but not the same. The oldest simply wouldn't allow it.

But this is the easy bit, just wait until all three girls become teens!
Not to mention when they begin to be "rebellious", and wear gothic outfits or dye their hair blue or whatever. The secret to keeping that under control is to fret about something pretty harmless like a ring in the nose. Not all the time, just once in a while. They'll slam the door and act angry but in reality they will be pleased and feeling really "rebellious" and delight in having "annoyed" their parents. That'll hopefully prevent them from doing something more outrageous.
The worst thing you can do is to ignore them or try to "understand" them, which you can't because you are too ancient.
If you want to stop them from doing something even worse, like a tattoo of Justin Bieber on the arm, say it's a great idea and that you will have one too. That's the last thing a "rebellious" teen want! - Just pray they do back down or you'll end up with Justin on your arm.
You can also pull the mother's-emergency-break-against-rebellious-sons: tell him he looks cute.

We can comfort ourselves with the thought that our children are likely to eventually end up being just as arch conservative as we are in their eyes.

So WA is in for some interesting years ahead.

Lol. Can't go that far....the future Queen of the Netherlands and her sisters getting going Goth,pierced, tatted and becoming a metal head? Not likely and normal rebellions and teen girl angst will be kept quietly out of sight. They seem sweet girls and WA and Maxima are apparently good parents so it should not be that dire.

But he is in for Interesting time, I agree.

Isabella's outfit is lovely; my favourite part of it is her smart looking coat and I also like her dress. Christian looks nice and casual in his jeans and coat, although I'm not too keen on the orange and blue colour combination. But overall he looks nice.

October 20: Princess Estelle wearing a tartan dress whilst watching a tennis match at the Stockholm Open:

Estelle's dress is very pretty and the bow is cute. I also like her smart little coat.

All parts of her outfit are just precious! They probably put the bow in her hair so that she looks more girlish. It's better now that she has some hair, but still a tiny bit ridiculous

Estelle looks so very sweet, and elegant too. One of my students this year has the same type of hair as Estelle, and her mom always wants to put a bow/hairband in it. The little one won't have it, and takes it out as soon as her mother is out of sight. However, it seems that Estelle doesn't mind the bow.

To me, it's no more ridiculous than the breast cancer awareness ribbon, which she wears with surprising ease, given other toddlers I've seen. I'm not blaming the SRF, and I don't have anything against cancer awareness, but it's a teensy bit ridiculous to have a toddler wear a ribbon. Maybe I just need some sleep...

I can see your point but as long as she tolerates those kinds of things and it supports such a worthy cause, why not? They also had a little medal pinned on her at some event not long ago. Victoria and Daniel are very smart to get her used very early to crowds, strangers, being dressed up, wearing small articles without typical toddler fidgetiness and longish events.

Estelle is surely one of the best dressed little princesses. I would put her in a par with the Infantitas, the Belgian children and Christian and Isabella. Her outfit is lovely beyond words, so is her coat. Perfect!

I love the dress and coat, they are beautiful. I don't lie the bows in her hair, though some say they are to make her more girlish. Surely being a dress and tights makes it obvious she is a girl...

I always wonder if her mommy will let her wear her hair down?
