I thought something was just a touch off about Catherine's look. I think it's the hair in combination with the hat. Separately, they look good, but together, not so much. I think if she had left her hair down with that hat, it would have looked better. But I'm glad she finally wore her hair up... I know it's smart to always go with what you're known most for, but showing versatility is fun, too.

Love Kate's hair, shoes and outfit. Not too crazy about the hat but it's a lot better than some of the other hats in the pics.

i LOVE this hat

but i think it may be because i have one that is very similar

My hair is currently about the same length - hats like that one can be difficult to keep in place when your hair has unrestricted movement. When my hair is up, things stay in place a lot better. Granted, I don't have help affixing things to my head. :lol:

I love HMQ at the races, she always looks so determined and focused! :lol:

And downright pissed when she loses! (http://www.daylife.com/photo/0fSwfAigEU19h?__site=daylife&q=queen+elizabeth+II)

I also thought Catherine looked smashing, perhaps a bit too much white, but still a great, fresh look. ;)

And the brothers looked quite dashing!

I thought Catherine's hat looked good from some angles, and silly in others.

Then again I can't even pull off a baseball cap, so hats are out for me.

HM Queen Margrethe of Denmark and HRH Prince Henrik are headed to the USA this week!

Found some video of their Royal Wedding in 1967! (http://www.dr.dk/bonanza/serie/Tema_royalt_bonanza/bryllup_Margrethe_Henrik.htm)

Talk about tiaras, go to 40:16 when HM Queen Ingrid walks in and everybody sits down. There is some crazy Aqua-Net hair and major tiaranage!

My pleasure, folks.

I'm glad some queen, er, employee at Danish television realized the need to preserve this stuff! :lol:

Here's the important question though...

Are you going to try and get a glimpse of them Fergus? IIRC, you said you were going to try in the Royal Wedding thread. If so, Good Luck!! :)

I heard that they are doing a shin-dig at the MOMA, that might be my best bet for a little :sekret: I shall keep you posted.

Official Programme of the Visit of HM Queen Margrethe of Denmark & HRH Prince Henrik! (http://www.kongehuset.dk/publish.php?id=29317)

I gotta hit the flag store for a Danish flag. :lol:

Maybe I'll just wave a tin of butter cookies. :rofl:

Or a copy of Lord of the Rings. HM is a *huge* Tolkien fan and even did the illustrations for one of the publishings of the book trilogy in Denmark.

It's a thought. :)

Anyway...The Royal Chronicle ~ The Epsom Derby (http://theroyalchronicle.wordpress.com/2011/06/04/royals-at-the-epsom-derby/)

Great pictures over there. I've never heard of this site before, but I've got it bookmarked now. :D BTW, that picture up top w/a majority of the Crown Couples of Europe from Queen Margerethe's Birthday Bash last year is fantastic!!

:( Yeah, Dad and I watched it on the CBC earlier today. It looked like he was going to be able to catch them there, but then *something* happened and it looked like he wasn't running "right". Both my Dad and I picked up on it and couldn't figure out what had happened.\.
