Royal ladies court-trains/coats

Always when I watch pictures of the past royal ladies court-trains/coats, I wonder for what depend their colours? Sometimes they are f.ex. red or blue. Did queens/empresses choosing them themself or maybe courts choosed them?


Thanks:)

Do you mean the cape-like coats a Queen would wear at her coronation? :)

Re:

The Red Dress-Coat that Queen Margrethe wore to CP Frederik's wedding was amazing and had a slight train to it. It was very very regal - I haven't seen a similar style but Queen Beatrix seems to like dresses with bustles at the back which I suppose could be similar.

Oh right, of course. I liked the one Queen Margrethe worn to CP Frederik's wedding, but I haven't seen any others, except for the one Queen Beatrix wore to the Prinsjesdag (I hope I've spelled it right! )this year, at least I think that was a coat from memory, I'll have to look at the pictures again.

Re:

Would you be able to post that pic please Layla? I can't remember seeing Beatrix in a 'train'. I think trains look wonderful - I'm not sure about colours. Margrethe's was more pinky than red I think but red would make sense.

I said I wasn't sure if it was a coat, or train, or what, the shoulders make it look like it has a train, and then you look, and it really doesn't, but here is the pic anyway:

Re;

Ah! It's sort of like a small cape. It looks as if it should carry on down into a train - a nice outfit all in all though.

Re:

Thats right Australian. QMII wore it on her State Visit to Japan - it's one of her busier frocks!

I like it but it's a bit over the top. I think that was a cape rather than a train.

Yes, these too. And I was thinking about all types of capes - trains, coats etc. wear for coronations or for formal occasions now and in the past centuries:)

I seen one of Queen Beatrix on the website of a press agency, but I couldn't download it.
It was a grey or green looking dress (there were two pictures, in different lighting, so I can't be sure of the color), and she wore it to a pre-wedding dinner, or party at the wedding of the Prince of Asturias last year. Maybe you've heard of it?

Re:

Thats the one! I thought it made her look a little tubby because it cut her in two - but it was still nice.

Thanks for the link! :)

I can't seem to find the thread, but in a thread called 'official photographs' there's a great one of Princess Alexandra. I think the dress is green on the bottom part.

You're right BeatrixFan.:) Margrethe's sometimes looks strange. She should have fashon advisor or smth like that. I know that she is an artist but little help is nothing wrong:)


Greetings:)
