  1. Oh, that is such a nice jacket that Crown Princess Mary is wearing! It’s probably a jacquard print on velvet or something wonderful like it. I read in your story that they had an official dinner. Was it white tie? Was a tiara involved?

      1. Well, that leaves tiaras out of the picture, right? I guess it must have been just like a nice dinner in a nice restaurant. Sigh! Sometimes the definition of Official Dinner is quite casual, isn’t it?

      2. That’s the odd thing! It was still in Riga Castle, but suit and tie! However, Queen Margrethe attended a Gala in London today, and so we might get a gown from her (I have the article pre-written, just waiting for the pictures)!
