    Queen Letizia's Evening Wear Part 7: July 2022 -

    The top looks very patch worky to me, and not in a good way. A top in a contrasting colour, perhaps with a plain necklace to enhance it, would have looked better with the pants iMHO.

    Portraits of the British Royals

    For garden parties, and the occasional State Banquet certainly. However I’m not so sure that Charlotte and Louis will be fulltime working royals, available for royal rota engagements. And by the time Louis has finished his education and is in his twenties, many of the royal cousins and others...

    And if this CEO is wanted on charges in the US then having him in the reception party greeting Harry and Meghan is on the hosts who invited the Sussexes to Nigeria, not on their guests.

    Queen Mary's Daytime Fashion Part 1: January 2024 -

    Interesting info on the Aussie Canopy Bay range of hats. Thank you Sun Lion. The hats look and sound fabulous and very protective against the sun’s rays. I remember poor Deborah Hutton getting melanomas and I think it’s terrific that Queen Mary is supporting her very worthwhile endeavour.

    The Duchess of Sussex's Fashion and Style Part 1: November 2023 -

    I like this yellow dress very much, but then I do like it when she wears colours. Yellow suits her skin tones and she looks fabulous. Not so keen on the skirt she was apparently presented with but at least she wore it, which was good.

    I love Dress 2 as well. I even like the shades which is unusual for me! It’s original and well fitted, and also chic. Also, Meghan wore a red dress by a Nigerian designer for this event. https://whatmeghanwore.net/meghan-stuns-in-red-dress-by-nigerian-designer-orire-for-women-in-leadership-panel/

    t was good to see Harry back in the UK. Ignoring that his own father did nothing to show any sort of caring on his return, it was good to see relatives at the Invictus service at St Paul's, namely his Spencer uncle and aunt. His mother's brother and sister offering their love and support. It...
