    You just knew there'd be one rather....Interestingly looking...dress from the weekend.

    HRH Princess Margarita of Romania and her husband HRH Prince Radu arriving for the Gala

    Yikes!!

    edited to add...There was a private party/Dinner Dance held on Thursday night just for the younger generation of Royals and personal friends and family of Victoria and Daniel. At one point, Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Princess Martha-Louise of Norway and her husband Ari Behn sang to Victoria and Daniel as part of their Wedding Gift to the two of them.

    Now that I would have loved to have seen. Gifts from the Heart are always the best of gifts regardless the occasion after all. :)

    Loved the part of the video where all those kings and queens were getting off what looked like a city bus. It makes sense, as a mode of transportation for a lot of people, but when you think of royalty, one usually thinks of shiny cars with darkly tinted windows... or horse-drawn carriages. Not buses.

    BTW, I thought Letizia was stunning. I usually give that prize to Mary, but the color of the gown didn't win me over. (the nude colored one for the concert. The white gown she wore earlier was gorgeous)

    She looked amazing, that color was perfect for her. She's got good arm candy, too. ;)

    I honestly believe there was a giant cosmic mix-up somewhere, and I was meant to be born a princess.

    Wow. How long will it take to load the church. I had no idea there were so many royals in the world. :lol:

    The old royal ladies look so camp in their tiaras. But wow, the young female royals are pretty amazing looking.

    SVT :respec: They gave us great skating this season and now a Royal wedding

    But while skating commentators Spanish words command was impressive (best Aranjuez ever) this wedding commentator had more troubles with Prince of Asturias :shuffle:

    Queen SofĂ­a and Queen Beatrix together

    BTW I liked Princess Maxima siren form dress

    I missed them, but the, uh, er, less pretty but more interesting and elegant dressed is Infanta Elena, alone cause she is now divorced, blonder and discreeter but with :grope: husband is Infanta Cristina ;)

    Her dress is beautiful... simple, yet beautifully cut. And as such, the cameo tiara isn't as overwhelming as I thought it would be.

    Totally, it doesn't sit as high on her head as when her mother wore it.

    Portrait collar is perfect.

    Sort of a interesting seating arrangement.

    Madeleine looks amazing, that color blue is spectacular.

    OK. When the groom is moved to tears by the vows, she's got a keeper.
