Maria-Teresa's and Victoria's dresses look similar but are not the same. The Swedish court has stated that Victoria's dress for the Nobel Prizes wasn't Saab.

They have quite a lot of tiaras and convertible necklaces, I estimate about 15 or more pieces can be worn as tiaras. The collection includes two diamond floral tiaras, this one is the bigger one. I don't know much about the history but it has been in the family for a long time, a few of Grand Duke Jean's sister wore it on their wedding day.

Guts, Queen Beatrix, has guts. Non English mother tongue, will have trouble understanding this. But for a mother, whose son is dying day by day to do this, you have to have guts. Bless you, Beatrix.

Grand Duke Henri and Prince Guillaume look very smart indeed.

I take back what I wrote on MT's fashion thread. These are better pictures and MT looked simply gorgeous in the blue dress.

I agree with all of you - I admire Beatrix a lot for getting on with it, in spite of all her personal sorrows and the grief she must feel inside.

Successful Royal Visit .
I want to know who has to go first.
The Grand Duke Henri paid a State Visit in the Netherlands and the Queen came in Luxembourg secondly because in 1981 the then Grand Duke was Jean.

In other words a Junior Monarch has to go to a Senior Monarch.
I do not understand why King Albert II never went to the UK on State Visit ?
