Royal Wardrobes

This might appear a silly question, but I was wondering: where do the royals keep their clothes? I mean, okay, the Crowprincesses live in palace and probably have large rooms for gala-dress-storage. But what about the young royals that most of the time live a normal life in a normal house/flat? Do they go to the palace in "normal" clothes, change for the event into appropriate clothing and after the event undress there?
Isn't it after all a question of security as well? I mean, thoses dresses ARE expensive!

I wonder if some hard to store items are kept off-site.

This is an excellent question! My guess is that some things are kept at home, and others are probably stored somewhere.

I had read that Princess Diana had to keep everything labeled and all organized.
Man, I'd be lost!!

Me too, Russo! Do you suppose she had a little help with the labeling and organizing? I haven't got enough clothes to be labeled much less organized!! Guess I couldn't be a princess....:-(

I would think you would have to have someone keep things organized for you. Not only when you wore something, but what accessories did you use so you can make it look different the next time worn. Also, someone would have to check before the item is put on that their are no stains, tears etc, it really would be a full time job, and fun IMO! Especially for the Princess's that are very busy. I would think they would have a "working closet", evening wear etc. I think I also read that Princess Diana had a storage dressingroom with a photograph book of outfits worn so the dresser could refer to it when the Princess was traveling so things weren't repeated to the same place. I mean how dreadful!!I would love to see one of the CP closets!!and while I'm on this fantasy tour wiz me by the jewels and we'll really have some fun!

Rubies, we could do that tour together! I was wondering for a long time, how they get it all toether? shoes, accesories, gala, etc.... once I saw a plan of Maxima's house in Hola and it really does not look that could be a room for her cloths, so i was always wondering about that. I presume they have like secretary that take care of that and make sure all is ok, sincerely i would love to have if I could a day doing the same! and specially having to choose jewelery.
i wonder if somebody in this forums have mor informations about this! I died for knowing all their secrets, or wordorwe secrets I should call it?

We could also stop by before Halloween. It would be a great place to search for costumes!

I'd love to see Queen Sonja's wardrobe . Gosh, this must be a huge thing.
I guess it's divided in different tracts: dresses 1980-1985, Suits 1980-1985, Dresses 1985-1990, Suits 1985...... and so on.
From time to time she's strolling through her giant wardrobe , thinking "Oh, it's time for the 1990-leather-suit and the 1997-hat again!"

That is actually a very good question. I always wondered myself. I can only imagine what the wardrobe of Queen Elizabeth II must look like after more than 50 years of reign. And we do know from past experience that Royals tend too keep cloths for quite some time - not taking into account all the accessories. Wasn't Princess Anne seen wearing the dress she wore to Diana and Charles' wedding again this year? I certainly do not envy those who have to keep track of all the outfits etc...
