Royals in National Costume
I love it when members of royal families don their country’s national costumes. Let’s start a thread of pictures devoted to that topic.
Of course the Scandinavians immediately come to mind, but if any of you have photos of royalty from other countries in national costume please post them here.
here's mette marit as a little girl in national costume.
Norwegian Royals in Bunads
Danish trip to the Faroe Islands
Anne-Marie, Benedikte and Margrethe in Faroese costumes (originally posted by Josefine)
Danish Royal family at Greenland, 2004
I've seen pictures of the Duke of Edinburgh in Greek dress, from a thousand years ago.
I've seen pictures of Anne-Marie in similar dress to what Theodora is wearing above, but it was in a book somewhere.
Thanks so much for sharing all the wonderful Links and Pictures! :) I would Love to have my Own Bunad someday, since I am second Generation Norwegian in the USA. ;)
I've been wanting a bunad too, but my family came from Buskerud Co. and the bunads there aren't very colorful. (I guess you could say I'm a 3rd generation!)
Isn't Mette-Merit supposed to be going there soon?

They're called Sevillana Dresses or Flamenco Skirts and they're typical from Andaluzia. You have here a few more examples: http://www.andalucia.com/flamenco/st...ms/skirts4.htm
It's nice to meet ya!!! ;)
Bunads are Very Beautiful!!! I more than likely make my own someday soon when I get my own place to live.. I Live in the NorthWest in Oregon for now. My Grandfather Olaf is buried here.. I have been searching for patterns for bunads, but, they are Very hard to find. I guess I should try online at least maybe.. :D
