    Turns out we've got a Royal skater. Princess Caroline's daughter Princess Alexandra of Hanover has competed in two Competitions.

    Coupe d'Avignon results

    Coupe d'Improvisation Cannes Azur Patinage 2011 results

    So...Someone to keep an eye out for possibly. However, I have a feeling the next time I see a mention of Alexandra around here will be from her Uncle's Wedding in a couple of months from now.

    HMQ and President McAleese laying wreaths at the Irish National War Memorial Gardens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDdyzh3AX2s

    HMQ visits Guinness! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQyioWeEMDw She's so tiny, I bet that one glass of Guinness would get her nice and buzzed!

    ETA: Change of clothes and she's off to Croke Park: http://www.rte.ie/news/2011/0518/queen.html

    According to the itinerary, the State Dinner tonight at Dublin Castle begins at 7:30pm Dublin time (2:30pm US Eastern).

    Wondering if RTE or any other broadcaster shows any of the State Dinner "red carpet" live (like they do on C-SPAN in the US)?



    Parsley Sage, I REALLY dig your guess that she'll be wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara!

    Parsley Sage, I think you were right about the tiara! It is indeed the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.

    President McAleese in a lovely electric blue coat-dress evening gown.

    The receiving line is a riot, some lady in black almost totally skipped shaking the DoE and Dr. McAleese's hands!

    I think I saw someone go through the line and shake hands with the president and HM and then bypassed the DoE and the president's husband

    It's definitely the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.

    It looked like a Celtic harp-shaped brooch.

    Here's a link to a close-up video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwaqpumuDds

    She was also wearing one of her mystery necklaces. The picture of the closeup I linked to was taken when she was in Singapore in 2006, and since she tends to wear gifts from that country during official visits, it's speculated that it was a gift from Singapore.

    Picture tonight

    Picture of a closeup during a previous outing.

    Yesterday was the 40th Birthday of HRH Crown Princess Maxima of The Netherlands. She spent it w/her Husband and Mother in Law presenting The Orange Awards and looked in fine form too.

    Maxima, William-Alexander and Queen Beatrix at The Orange Awards Luncheon

    Happy Belated Birthday to one of my favourite non British Royals!!!

    Edited to add...An article about the rumoured ill health of HM King Juan Carlos of Spain.

    Monsters and Critics ~ Growing concern in Spain over King Juan Carlos' health

    I'd heard about the removal of the lung tumour, but thought he was on the mend, so was shocked when I saw the pictures of the Celebrations welcoming Spain's Soccer/Football Team home after their triumph at last year's World Cup in South Africa. Not only was his colour bad, but he looked incredably frail as well. Any pictures of him since then have been the same. At least the ones I've seen.

    He's a man I deeply respect for how he's helped Spain transistion from a Dictatorship into a Democracy. It's so sad to see him looking so ill these days.
