Royal Round Up: Prince Harry’s Mic Drop and 2 Kings Celebrate Birthdays

Let’s start this round up with one more nod to William and Kate’s 5 year anniversary….

The British Royals

William & Kate’s 5th Anniversary

The couple celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary ‘privately’ (no surprise there) but it’s been fun reading through the anniversary coverage.  Richard Ward’s memories of doing Kate’s wedding day hair  is worth a read  and our post on 5 favorite moments from the wedding is here if you missed it.


Prince Harry’s Mic Drop

If you haven’t seen this already, or even if you have, voila. Enjoy watching the Queen’s expression and how much she adores Harry. #Favourite

The Invictus Games start soon – they run from May 8-12 – and will take place in Orlando, Florida. Their official website is here.

The Dutch Royals

It was a full week for King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima and their daughters.  They celebrated King’s Day on April 27th (Queen Maxima brought out a new hat for the occasion and I love that Princess Alexia wore a jean jacket). Two days before on April 25th, they were received by Pope Francis at the Vatican.

By my count, that’s the fourth royal/princely/ or ducal family to have been received by the Pope since the start of 2016. Charlene & Albert started it off in January and were followed by the King and Queen of Tonga and the Luxembourg Ducal Family

The Swedish Royals

It’s party time for King Carl Gustaf of Sweden. He’s been celebrating his 70th birthday with a series of events over the last few days and we’ve gotten some great fashion moments out of it.

For example, for an evening concert on April 29th Crown Princess Victoria showed up in a look that’s a little out there but overall I say it’s a win. No diamonds but that daring necklace makes a statement and check out the oxblood nail polish and on point shoes.

For an event earlier in the day, she killed it in this fresh floral dress with a subtle hint of dazzle. Well done, well done. Next time, hair down please.


Princess Madeleine is visiting from London with Chris O’Neill and they must have been eager to meet new nephew Prince Alexander. She wore what looks to be a chic dress but aggravatingly covered it up with this jumbo, shapeless coat. Come on!

We’ll end with Queen Silvia who arrived like an absolute Queen in her carriage and floor length fur. Let’s just say it’s fake.

April 30th is jam packed with more birthday events so we’ll have to  chat more about it next week.


What do you think so far? Have a wonderful weekend!
