There have been rumours of a possible Scandinavian tour later this year but there were rumours of a Caribbean tour a year or so back as well which came to nothing. Until there is an official announcement all these are rumours.

That's the reason I have put my break from TRF on hold, because I'm waiting for news on that very interesting trip.

Not rumours. William talked to some norwegians during a garden party at BP in may. He said the following: Hopefully we are going to Norway very soon, we are going to do a Scandinavian trip.

Not a rumor, I saw the clip (posted here) where William says to a guest that they are going to Norway/Scandinavia in the fall I believe.

What actually happened was that William was talking to someone in the crowd at one of the Garden Parties and he said he 'hoped' to be going to Scandinavia - nothing official but a throw-away line about something that may be going to happen. That makes it still a rumour in mind - nothing official has been announced. It was the same with the Caribbean visit they were rumoured to be going to make - a throw-away line that turned into Harry going to the Caribbean and William and Kate going elsewhere. I suspect that 'Scandinavia' turned into Poland and Germany. It would be rare to have two tours so close together geographically in the same year by the same couple.

If William and Kate are to make another overseas tour this year (already have three each under their belts) it is more likely to be to some Commonwealth country - they haven't been to Africa officially yet where there are many Commonwealth countries. Add to that George is starting school in September and they have already indicated that once that happens they don't want to be away while he is at school so that means any more overseas tours by them will have to be either this month or not until mid-term or Christmas.

He didn't said he 'hoped' to be going to Scandinavia - he said: ''Hopefully we are going to Norway very soon, we are going to do a Scandinavian trip.'' And we had already got news on the trip to Poland and Germany at that point.

Yes, I saw it, very exciting news. And it looks like what I wrote in another thread about them not visiting Denmark, was right.

Not likely to happen on this occasion. Ladies of the BRF typically only wear tiaras at state events or other white tie events. W&C will not get a white tie event on this tour, at best, black tie.

1. The only possibility that these visits to Norway and Sweden would have included white tie dinners is if the Queen herself was coming for a state visit.

2. When Charles and Camilla visited all the the Scandinavian countries in 2012 (to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee), they attended black tie dinners at the Palace in Oslo, Drottningholm, and Amalienborg.

3. Will that happen for William and Kate? I don't know.

4. What speaks against/for?

Against: William is not first in line to the throne.

For: William/Kate is the future monarch/consort and members of the most prestigious monarchy/family in the world.

IMO, the unwillingness to wear tiaras stems from the British, and not the host countries. Trips by C&C are state visits in all but name. However, outside of CHOGM and the Dutch enthronement, I do not believe in over 12 years, I have seen Camilla in a tiara whilst abroad.

Let's be practical. It used to be there were a lot of tiara and opera gloves and ball gowns and glitter and situations where it would be practical to have these things and wear them out. It used to be also that a woman never went to church or even stepped outside of her home in public without a hat and gloves on. Women even wore day dresses to clean house in. Remember Mrs. June Cleaver? She always had a dress and pearls on even being at home being a housewife. It was a norm. I grew up in that era. Women who wore pants were "fast" and "loose".

Times have changed. People wear what they feel comfortable in to church. Dressing to the nines has not only gone by the wayside by the general public but also by the BRF. The only "real" bling that is paraded today is by reality celebrity stars and rap artists that use it as their trademark. They've kind of defined what "bling" is in the 21st century. Displays of "bling" actually denotes to the general public mind of people that are flashing their wealth.

Its kind of refreshing to me to see *less* emphasis put on the bling and the fashion aspect of the Duchess of Cambridge and the forever present blue suit of William's. They're going against the prevalent displays of "bling" and fashionistas blatantly to draw away from what they wear as to put the focus on what they're doing. That makes sense to me.

All very valid points, though I a don't see a link to my post.

The point was to make that in this day and age, its not necessary to put the emphasis on bling but on what they're doing.

As much as tiara fans may not like it, occasions just don't warrant them that much anymore. They've gone the way of a 2400 baud modem. PM me privately if you wish to know what one was.

Muriel, I often agree with your points, but not in this I'm afraid.

1. Duchessrachel wrote that she was hoping for a tiara appearance from Kate. As I then wrote, the only possibility that these visits to Norway and Sweden would have included white tie dinners is if the Queen herself was coming for a state visit.

2. Dinners/performances for foreign guests in Norway:

Milestone birthdays under Haakon VII, Olav V and Harald V: One (or two) white tie dinners/events and one black tie dinner/event.

State visits from a Monarch/President: A white tie galla dinner at the palace in Oslo.

Official visits from a monarch/President: A black tie dinner (if any).

Visits from other royals: At best a black tie dinner (that happened with the Jubilee visit from Charles and Camilla in 2012).

3. So I don't think the ''unwillingness'' to don't wear tiaras stems only from the British.

4. Another thing I disagree with is that ''trips by C&C are state visits in all but name'', because there are other things that separates their official visits from other royal state visits. And I'm pretty sure we'll see Charles/Camilla in white tie with orders/tiaras as monarch/consort.

It just seems a waste to have all that jewelry sitting in the vaults taking on dust. If they are not going to wear it, they should just sell it and do something good with the money. Part of the mystery of the royal family to me is the tiaras and jewelry. Oh well, things do change.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department of the Swedish royal court, said to Svensk Damtidning magazine, that the news of William and Catherine's visit to Sweden in November are not true.

That's a shame! I got all excited about the possibility of William and Catherine meeting Victoria and Daniel. The respective couples have a lot in common

I'd be surprised if Kate would be willing to do a foreign trip so early in her pregnancy. Even if it was planned (at some point) I could see it being cancelled. Anyway.
