In a way, these are delightful, reminds me that they are very human too. :rolleyes:

The photo of Queen Paola reminds me of one that was taken of poor Fergie. It seems the poor thing had poor luck with her skirts flying up (due to the wind, I'm not being ugly to Sarah).

Aren't royals supposed to put weights in their skirts so as to avoid accidents? (And I wonder why this knowledge wasn't shared with Sarah.)

Poor Mary, a fly away hat it awful cause then you have to go chase it (or have someone else chase it like she did) but I have a question, don't they usually put a pin in through the hat that goes through the hair and out the other side for these kinds of hats? I saw Queen Elizabeth II has those pins and she really doesn't have that much hair to work with.:)

I'm sure these must be one of the most unpleasant moments for Queen Sofia of Spain.

falling over or tripped over in front of her husband, and the President of USA, Bill Clinton

Poor Queen Sofia. Its one thing to trip in public but at a big state function! If I were here I would talk to the tailor about hemming the dress an extra inch!

I can't remember where i saw this but it was a pic of Queen Margrethe falling down some stairs, or it could have been just a trip. I will try and dig it up.

The singer seated on the lap of Sweden's Princess Lillian was kind of too much, almost rude. First, she is very old, you just don't seat on an old lady's lap like that, she could get injured. Second, that was way too much touching. Imagine Madonna doing the same pose with King Gustav or Prince Phillip of Britain. She would have been called vulgar...well, Madonna has been called that before :rolleyes: ...my point is there are things you don't do to a senior citizen.

I agree...he could have serously hurt her. He is much more heavier that she is.

These Swedish princesses! Princess Madeleine in a Marilyn Monroe moment at the family gathering at Sofiero.

Its not like he places all his weight on her, he really balance most of his weight of with the legs, secondly Lilians sense of humor is well known in Sweden and she did not take it the wrong way, If I remember it she called him afterwords and he said to the press that Lilian was the girl for him:p . I belive Lilian once poored fake ketchup on an american politician during a dinner and he called her the craziest royal he ever met, cant remeber his name though. Lilian is a sweetheart, with humor, it does not get better.

It was at the Rebild celebrations on 4 July - must be 10-15 years ago. She must have hurt herself the way she rolled down the stairs.
I have been searching for the picture but haven't found it.

Yes the Queen uses Hat pins and something like kirbigrips to pin the hair down for the pin to go through (or that is the norm):D .

Thanks Nefertiti. I remember they showed it on TV. She really must have been bruised after that.
