I’ve always thought that Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg, has excellent taste in the way she presents herself. She was, and is, a very elegant lady. I think- I trust- that Prince Joachim has matured and that he won’t put Princess Marie through the same wringer as the Countess. People do change, thank goodness! 🙂
My, but that “starter tiara” belonging to Crown Princess Victoria is sad. Like a row of paper clips. I hope she doesn’t give it to Princess Estelle when she turns 18!
