Oh that's a cute thread
Queen Sonja often wears flowers in her hair.
Like here, or here .

Mary recently wore a dress with floral print and so did Letizia.
I'll look for a link.
Here it is:

Crown Princess Mary wore a lot of florals when she was pregnant with Prince Christian (the little cutie with those chubby cheeks! awww....oops, I'm getting sidetracked). Here are some of the outfits she wore:

So many pretty florals! I don't know how many of you watch the BBC comedy Keeping Up Apperances but looking at Queen Beatrix's floral dresses and hats it so reminds me of the shows main character Hyancinth Bouquet!I always thought England's Queen Mother was who they patterened her style after but now I think it was QB for sure.Hyacinth even mentions the DRF in one episode!

Does anyone know how tall Alexandra is she must be at least 5'7 she seems to be able to wear large prints and gowns with alot of material very well and that is something shorter womman would have trouble with-I think she is quit elegant and graceful

Posts on this thread need to immediately change.

Until now, this thread has been a list of photos and links to photos that are posted in several other places on this board. Since the Royal Forums is not a photo hosting site but a discussion board, it is very important that this topic include discussion and not just photo links.

From now on, discussion about this topic will be required to keep this thread open.
Photos here are often posted several other places on this board- please consider linking to those places so all members can have some context about when that particular fashion was worn (where, when, why and who!). Understandably, photos are often needed to support discussion but we trust that all members here are very familiar with the more appropriate mix of photos, dicussion and news that is balanced almost everywhere else across the forum.

If this thread does not immediately change from a list of repeated photos to an active discussion, we will have to close it because it is of little value to the forum and is simply using up bandwidth.

So let's all start talking to each other!!
Why do you like royals in florals?
Are there occasions when this wearing this colour was symbolic?
Maybe when it seemed completely out of place?
Who wears this colour the most strikingly?
Are there eras in time when this colour was more popular?
What style of clothing to you think looks best in this colour?
Are there colours that are OK for younger princesses, but not for more mature Queens?


Let the discussion begin!

I think Margarethe's dress at Mary and Frederik's wedding was so fitting (this photo is in the Wedding thread #2 #3). In the years prior to this, Margarethe wore lots of gowns in extremely dark colours (grey, burgundy, navy blue) that were regal and beatiful but very dark. This dress was such a contrast to everything she had recently worn- it was such a breath of fresh air! I'm not sure if she was trying to capture the spring season, to blend with the wedding's vibrant pink/coral colour scheme or to she just liked the idea of the dress, but it fit the occasion perfectly. The coat also added such a sense of drama- wonderful for the Crown Prince's wedding.

She pulled it off well, she is a tall person who could wear big prints. If princess Alexandra would wear a dress like that it wouldnt be flattering at all. A small floral print dress on a big or short women would work well the taller the bigger the print would be.
