Thank you for the context, Duc_et_Pair. Would never have guessed. Good to know.

I always try not to say anything if I don't agree with someone's fashion choices, but in this case those two features - dress and make-up that are major - will be set aside for what really is (imo) a very charming bouquet.

Princess Martha Louise of Norway's hair and crown are one of the best placements I have seen. So few do tiara-cum-hair (and veil) well these days imo. (As though I am an expert. I'm not. I just know what pleases me. )

With Queen Maxima, another excellent tiara-cum-veil (and hair) placement, and just love her bouquet. The green is a splendid contrast with the white and the bouquet itself is just the right size, even though it's largish to my eye.

So of the nine pictures presented in the link, I would say Queen Maxima's bouquet wins hands-down, with Catherine's bouquet a sturdy second. Charlene's bouquet might be a choice except that I can't see the bouquet well enough in the picture given to choose it.

Beatrice's bouquet was lovely.

Actually, I found her bouquet very plain...

I particularly liked Katherine's, Mary of Denmark, Victoria and Charlene's. Those are my favorites. Maxima's was pretty nice too.

Not a fan of Martha-Louise, Letizia's or Marie of Denmark's


My least favorite...Mette-Marit, that one falls into the 'what on earth was she thinking' category.

What I thought was perfect about Kate's bouquet and we even expected her to do it way before the wedding here at TRF is that she included the Sweet William in her bouquet.

MM's was ugly. But I found Kate's boring and under whelming. Too small and plain for such a venue.

Is that Kate's in the pic? It really looks very small. I know her wedding dress was not "big and grandiose" and perhaps the bouquet was meant to match it but I think it is too small

Yes, Kate's bouquet was a very pretty and charming one, but more suited to a simple country wedding perhaps. After all, if you're marrying into a royal family you might as well make a splash and go for something memorable!

It does not look as nice as mine, which was a posy of roses... and mine was a simple quiet wedding... but then I don't feel K has much taste.. I thought her dress was very derivative..
