Princess Caroline and her daughter like Chanel a lot. They always wear special clothes that Karl Lagarfeld gives them :)

I had no idea they were the only ones allowed to wear Chanel... I thought they would at least wear Valentino since it was a celebration about him but when I saw the pics of them in Chanel I was a little disappointed bc I bet they would look so perfect in his clothes.

Maxima wore a grey, tweedy-type Chanel coat to Prince Floris and Aime's wedding.
She may have worn Chanel to the baptism of her 2nd child Princess Alexia, anybody know for sure?

The former Christina Manley wore a pink Chanel jacket to one of her engagment press conferences for her upcoming marriage to Prince Joachim. Marie-Chantal wore a Chanel suit for her engagement announcement as well and wears Chanel quite often.

Infanta Elena .wears chanel a lot....
http://estaticos03.cache.el-mundo.ne..._albumes_0.jpg
Even though Elena isn't a beautiful woman, she protrays such elegance, as befitting the daughter and and grandaughter of Kings and Queens. I think she is the last one of her kind.

I've just looked at Natans website and some of the hats that were done for royals. Like the one worn by Maxima at Alexia's christening was by someone who worked for Natan I think?
Thats they only thing I have liked by that company.
Mathildes dress in the link above doesn't suit her at all.

They appear to be poorly fitted on Crown Princess Mathilde, thereby making her look unflattering. I am not keen on wild colour palette and prints aggravated by shiny material.
I think that creations by Albert Kriemler of Akris woud have suited Crown Princess Mathilde much better. They can be described as modern, feminine and discrete. His designs have got an uncomplicated silhouette and perfect tailoring the designer takes pride in as well as are simple to combine.
I agree. CP Mathilde always seems to have these two ill-placed pleats on the bodice of her dress -- the whole outfit ends up looking quite skimpy on her. Too bad, she's a very pretty woman.

I admire the fact that Mathilde and Maxima are so loyal to a designer that comes from the Low Countries, but I just don't think that his styles are very flattering on the princesses. The skirts do often appear to be too short, and some of the fabrics that he uses appear to be too thin or cheap-looking. I don't know if he designs with the princesses in mind, or if he tries to tailor his designs to the princesses when they express an interest in an outfit.

I have always liked his designs best on Princess Claire, who appears to be more petite than Mathilde and Maxima. I think that his designs would look best if he created them directly for Mathilde and Maxima (and stayed away from the pleats and thin fabrics).

You know what if it doesn't happen yet, it would be fun to see all princesses (Maxi, Mati, Laurentien, Calire etc.) in Natan's on the same event. Maybe even same outfits.

I think even that a belgian or foreign lady is not allowed to ask Natan the same dress like Mathilde, Claire, Maxima were wearing.
The Princesses order to Natan ( E. Vermeulen) many dresses at the same time for the different events they have to assist, and the models are exclusive.
When Maxima and Mathilde were wearing the same black and white coat, it was because Maxima went to Prada. This would not happen if Mathilde and Maxima ordered both their coat by Natan. He should make for both Princesses something different.

Unfortunately, the topic about 'Royals and their similar style' here is full of Natan designs, which are not very exclusive after all - neither literally nor figuratively.
He has frequently used similar and even the same tailoring, colors, fabrics and prints on all kinds of Belgian, Dutch, Luxemburgian and Swedish royal ladies.
This alone would be a good reason for them to stop wearing his repetitive fashions.

After that what Boris wrote I have a question.
Why royal ladies want to wear NATAN's clothes?
What is it with them - magic, good price, good style, simply they like them or what?
