i feel so sorry for Queen Sofia
this was her brother's funeral
king-juan-carlos-queen-sofia-z.jpg

she has not had the easiest life as far as Queen's go


and poor Queen Ann Marie
princess-anne-comforts-queen-anne-marie-z.jpg

i can see why the Windsors are careful who they send to these foreign royal things

Im thinking Ann must have been particuary close to the Greek royal family, (well they are her realitives and they did live in London for a long time)

If Charlie or William attended - and im sure they would have both wished to, there would have been a media circus with all thats going on with their family right now and that would not have supported the grieving family

Thats why i think Edward and Sophie get sent to the Euro royal weddings, to politetly not upstatge the bride, mind you Catherine has such beautiful manners and knows not to wear a new dress to a wedding

A few points:
- Sofia was shattered by the time of the burial. I imagine she must've remained close to her brother despite living in different countries most of their lives.
- Anne was not a lesser representation. She and Tino are related in the same degree as Tino and Charles and their other siblings. Anne was a bridesmaid at their wedding and they were both IOC members and fellow Olympians.
- The world does not spin around the House of Windsor and the media must learn that, but also they themselves. If seven European heads of state attended (+ a few former and heirs), I don't see why an eight couldn't be bothered to come. Or his heir and godchild of the deceased. (Again - Anne was a good choice).
- I'm pretty sure there will be a large memorial service later on in London, his home for half of his life. I'm sure the entire Royal Family will be there.

The Princess Royal was a great choice to attend the funeral IMHO.

She may be way down the line of succession in principle, she stands shoulder to shoulder with the King in stature as far as I am concerned. To me personally, she is the queen we never had.

OK, so I am kind of biased as she is my favourite royal.

and Anne is a great asset to the King (and the nation and the greater commonwealth)

yes there is that red detailing on HM's coat
i would have still added a big gold brooch
or we could have had clips

Sophie's birthday was this week
so as its her birthday its just too bad the flowers and the apron cover up her lovely long necklace !

its very hard to get enough actual facts off the net as every article everywhere on everyone defaults to H&M :angryfire:
its tiresome and disrespectful to the work of the HRH (and HMs of course) and the people and work and causes they are all trying to highlight

this may have been the hospital where Louise and James were born

“The Citrine Baby Treasure Necklace is made using 100% recycled solid 9ct yellow gold and set with a beautiful citrine,” the company, Daniella Draper, explains on its website. “The birthstone for November, citrine assists in manifesting your biggest dreams, bringing in more success and prosperity.”
it even ships free to NZ :appl:


ok its 9 ct but the gold is recycled
and i could actually afford this one :lol-2:
but its not a kikki
and its not from the $2 shop (i think they call them the pound store in the UK)

i would like to see the Princess wear this every time HRH is about to go out without a necklace !

It must be the same pearl pendant from Royal Ascot 2021. I like it with the longer chain more! royal-ascot-2021-day-two.jpg gettyimages-1323948004-2048x2048~2.jpg

I'm surprised by the price tag, although I find lovely and casual, yet refined.

One can probably make something similar for a lot less!

I don't have the equipment to drill through the ? Aqua rough on the left hand side.

The cups on some of the CSs might be a bit more difficult to find, however, there are likely to be suitable alternatives about.

The pearl cups or similar should be easy to find.

Likewise with the gold beads.

Too many colours for my liking personally.
