I wonder, since most of their clothing is of very good quality and can be worn again, wouldn't they want to dye it or add appliqué or embroidery to them?

I think if I were Pr. Anne I would be scared out of my mind to even consider attempting to dye or add anything for fear it would crumble away. Goodness, fabrics can only live so long...even the finest!

Wasn't Princess Anne seen wearing the dress she wore to Diana and Charles' wedding again this year?
But that was 27 years ago! Anne despretly needs a stylist.

I had read that Q Elizabeth has at least 2 ladies who catalogue her clothes with the date and occasion she last wore them and what accessories were used. This way they know when to take the outfit out again and dust it off to re use it.
In another book, Prince Michael of Greece had said that when they had formal events they'd go to the Athens Palace from Tatoi where they'd dress there in their formal clothes.
Then you have ladies like Mouna El Ayoub who has closetfuls of haute couture outfits that are sorted according to colour and style etc etc.
Wouldn't we like to have the same problems?? Where to store the haute couture blue dresses so they do not clash with the greens?????

I would love to help you. We probably would be fired on the first day, the poor Queen would be ready for her jewels and we'd be walking around the dressing room with them on!!!!!!!!

I would guess there is a formalwear section, a daytime section, and a casual section. Once something has been worn at a public function it gets rotated into private use. My head is getting giddy with thoughts of organizing and reorganizing it all! I like to "play" in my closet some times, and to get to play in royal closet would be heaven! As for keeping track of what was worn when, I would think there's probably some kind of computer software for that now (a la 'Clueless'), but I haven't heard of any.

I have some vague memory of a tv program about the Swedish queens clothes that there was large wardrobes in the attic or somewhere like that in the royal palace where the queen and the reporter looked at different dresses. I sure would love to go there...

I vaguely remember something similar about QEQM but it was wardrobes that lined a hallway(?). I'm sure all the clothes get saved anyways, whether it's for exhibitions years later or auctioned off for charity, etc.

wardrobe/furs/jewels Closet/Vault

Would love to see the Royals Closet/Vault -- it must be huge ... probably be equal to several good size rooms, climate control would be a must, and it would probably have top-notch security (those designer gowns,hats,suits,furs,everyday jewelry cost a mint).
Although I'm sure that the really expensive jewelry is kept seperate.

Just think how complicated it would be, keeping track of what is worn to various functions, and the mix and match..................just keeping track of handbags,shoes,hats,scarfs -- etc

Wonder how each Royal Family handles it for the Crown Princess, and how many employees it takes

There used to be another thread like this.
I imagine the closest are incredible organised and maintained by CP's staff.
All important jewellery is kept elsewhere or somewhere really safe. I doubt top security just for a wardrobe, the palaces are well guarded as it is.
Climate control?
I don't think many princesses have that much fur or they rarely wear it.
The royal family has an easy way of keeping track if they wish, the press.
Say the outfits worn by the CP's at the 20th UN anniversary this week, will most likely not be seen complete for a few weeks, the staff will make a note of what was worn and let the cp's only wear seperate parts of the outfit.
Unless your Princess Letizia and that plum varela dress.

I remember the other thread too. And I, too, would love to take a peek into the closets, and vaults. I'm sure the palace(s) have a computer program for the princesses clothes. They probably post a picture. Then enter all the information about where it was worn, and with what jewelry, and other accessories into the program. Then it is just a matter of pulling up a certin outfit to see how it was worn before. Maybe each outfit is numbered or something, and that is how they find it in the computer. But can you imgine such a system. D for dress, s for suit, h for hat etc.... I wouldn't even know where to begin.
