The Queen, joined by The Princess Royal, visited the Children's Wood Project. HM wore the mighty Albert brooch, while HRH opted for a gold brooch and matching necklace:
Also who is this lady please?
In the evening, Their Majesties and their hosts enjoyed a concert at the Konzerthaus Berlin. Maxima opted for a different colour scheme and donned Queen Juliana's aquamarines.
She even sneaked the Art Deco brooch and pinned it on her waist. Note the calibre-cut sapphires on the sides!
PS: The Dutch are notorious gardeners and the flower decorations during state visits are as beautiful as the jewels. Sometimes even more!
Sophie Countess of Wessex (necklass) and Princess Alexandra (brooch) had a day out together on offical duty
Very dignified ladies
I think this is one of Princess Alexandra's favourite patronages - Guide Dogs for the Blind and she handed it over to the Countess of Wessex during the visit yesterday.
In some of the photos the Princess is very emotional and understandably, since she had been their patron for well over decades.
Back to the jewels - Princess Alexandra won the day for me in her effortless elegance:
The Countess' pendant and earrings
Great to see some close ups !
Princess Alexandra seems so lovelly (love those earings)
I bet they loved having her as patron and who better than Sophie to carry it on
I hope Charlie sees and continues to make use of the value of his brother and sister in law
Princess Marina wearing her impressive Romanov pearl pendant at the wedding of her nephew Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia to Princess Maria Pia di Savoia in 1955
I wonder who has those pearls now ?
i hope Alexandra. Princess Marina wasn't very nice not leaving her daughter a tiara - seeing it as the husband's esponsibility to provide tiaras
