An iteresting fact re: black and white: traditionaly a woman wears black for a papal audience but certain Catholic queens and princesses posses what is known as 'Privilege de Blanc', that is the privilage to wear white for a papal audience. Four women have this honor, the Queen of Spain, the Queen of the Belgians, the Queen Mother of the Belgians, and the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.
Princess Grace was offered this by Pope Paul 6th but declined out of humility.

Please post the dates and the occasions when these ladies wore their black/white attire otherwise it becomes a picture dumping thread. It would also be nice to have some dicussion as to why you like these images.

Thank you.

Mandy, in my eyes, the fascinating thing about this thread is to see as much pics as possible of a royal lady wearing the same colour. It's great to compare and to see how different a certain colour looks while a royal lady is getting older and it's great to see what many ideas the designers create. Little details can make so many different black/white/red dresses. Therefore I posted that many pics, but I can't always give the date and occassions, at least I'll try, I hope that's okay for all of us?!

Princess Anne and her white dresses, I chose these as Anne does not wear white that often, although she looks very good in it. Only in pic number three the dress is a bit ruined by her shoes she had to wear because of the rain
1.+2 pics during her pregancy and Royal Ascot in the late 1970s
3.-4. at Royal Ascot in the mid and late 1980s
5. at a military parade in the 1990s

Princess Máxima at Prinsjesdag 2006:
This black-white combination looked great on her! I really like the white flower she wore instead of a hat!

Princess Elena seems to wear white much more often than black. It's very interesting how she changes her white outfits with little details in other colours.

1. 1998 - presentation of her first baby
2. 2003 - handing out sport trophies
3. 2005 - official portrait
4. 2005 - official engagement
5. 2004 - photocall with foreign guests
6. 2004 - getting the medal "Royal Master"
7. 2002 - at an exhibition

Royals in white.

We have threads about Royal Ladies wearing red, blue or green. These are nice colours but white...

White is the traditional color of brides in the western world as well as Japan.
White is a color of mourning in China and parts of Africa.
In Chinese culture colors corresponded with the five primary elements, the directions and the four seasons. White was associated with autumn, metal and the direction West.

I interest about royals - women and men, old and young who ever wore white.

"White...is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black...God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white." --G. K. Chesterton.
