Royals Royals Everywhere and Not A Drop to Drink . . .
As the lockdown ends, royals across Europe are beginning to creep out of their palaces.
Kate and William have emerged, Camilla and Charles have emerged . . .
And today new photos of the recently born heir to the Luxembourg throne, Prince Charles, were posted. His parents, Princess Stephanie and Prince Guillaume, look ecstatic, and the Princess appears to have put on quite a bit of baby weight. Unfortunately, from what is visible, the boy looks like his father. Of course, he's not two months old, so . . .
The priceless Point de Vue et de Gotha magazine has lots of photos up.
One of the happiest royal marriages appears to be that of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden to the self-effacing husband, Prince Daniel. They recently celebrated an anniversary and Point de Vue's headline was, 'In love as on the first day . . ."
I think she adores him. She looks like a nice woman. Her father, King Carl Gustav, was outraged when his second child, the son, was not allowed to be the Heir, despite not being born first, and was open about his feeling that his son had been deprived of his birthright by modern foolishness.
But the thing is, ironically, I think Victoria would have been happier, especially in her earlier days when she suffered from eating disorders and came close to a breakdown, if the throne HAD gone to her younger brother.

Would it have killed you to post a picture, or even a link?

What about the current locus of evil in the world, Crown Princess Victoria's second child, Prince Oskar? Is he ripping the wings off of swans?

R1 - OP here - I don't know how. Apologies, that's why I referred folk to Point de Vue.

R2 - Prince Oskar looks a little like Prince Louis of Cambridge, don't you think? And also seems to have the same impish charm.

He looks like a creepy ventriloquist dummy.

R5 - Oh, come now. He's just displaying a little boy's pirate grin.
However, both Victoria's kids look like her and not their father, who is better looking than she is. It's the unfortunate chin.
It can't have been easy on Victoria being the Heir whilst her younger sister, far more blessed with classically balanced features and their father's blondness and blue eyes, was hailed as "the prettiest princess in Europe".

The biggest princess in Europe is Crown Princess Catharina Amalia (they call her Amalia) of The Netherlands. She is already taller than her 5'10" Mum and nearly as tall as her father, King Willem-Alexander. And Amalia isn't tall and slender, but tall and chunky. She has a sweet face and pretty hair, but man is she BIG.
The other two daughters of Maxima and Willem, even though younger, seem to be finer boned. The one who turned 15 today, Princess Alexia, is much smaller than the 17 year old Amalia, but has the not too pretty horse face of of her mother. The youngest daughter, Ariane, has the same round sweet face of the oldest daughter - these two look like their father and grandmother, ex-Queen Beatrix.

Would the darling Tiara Troll and people putting up OT royal news on threads like the Kensington Palace Blasts Kate Middleton Cover Story move that stuff over here? The original thread topic is long played out but people keep putting stuff there that this thread was created to hold.

Prince Felix, the younger son of Prince Joachim of Denmark from Joachim's first marriage, is just turning 18. Unlike his older brother, Prince Felix looks like his Danish father (the older son shows the mixture of Asian and Dane, their mother being Anglo-Chinese).
Felix is quite adorable with a suspiciously twinkish air about him.
Before you start bashing me, I don't know how to post links. Check out Billed-Bladet, it's right there.
The older brother is also very good looking and is trying to carve out a career as a model

Princess Amalia could be whittled down to her slimmest and be a knockout. She is a healthy girl, reminds me of Kristen Johnson or Kirstie Alley. Some men find that very attractive; usually they are physically opposite.

You need to be better informed. And watch your back.

R9, posting links is easy: copy the website link in the search bar thingy at the top of the relevant website and then paste it into the "Web Site Link" box below the reply box here on DL.
Get back to us if you don't know how to know how to copy/paste.

Kate and William made an appearance at the NHS in King's Lynn, which is close by their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, in recognition of the 72nd anniversary of the NHS. Both wore blue, the NHS colour, and they looked, as always, exactly the way the know they need to look: warm, friendly, well but not over stylishly dressed, accessible, and soothing.

R7 William (6'3") & Kate's (5'9") children should be exceptionally tall for The Windsor family. I'd imagine that even Princess Charlotte will be very close to 6ft.

R15 - Given that Charlotte appears also to have inherited Diana's beautiful legs and slim hips (as looks like it from William's Father's Day/Birthday photo), I think you're right, she is going to be really tall with those racehorse legs. Remains to be seen if any of the kids also inherited the fabled Windsor complexion.
In other news, Lady Colin Cambell's book on Meghan (and Harry LOL) has hit the TIMES best-seller lists (that's UK TIMES, it hasn't been released in America yet, although it has fallen steeply in pre-order sales according to Amazon).
I note utter silence from the BRF on the latest legal submissions by Meghan against the Mail, in which she repeats the same mistake for which the court slapped her hands in the initial Complaint at the pre-trial hearing: bringing in extraneous issues with no bearing on the privacy issue on which she based the suit, trying to use a privacy suit to carry a de facto slander suit, and slandering the British royal family as she does by telling outright porkies that the court will spot immediately.
The Danish Royal Family has gone to Graasten for their annual summer visit, and Princess Isabella is apparently taking on her father's keen interest in tennis and is turning out far prettier than she looked to be in childhood. The next heir looks just like his mother but with blue eyes, and once past the acne currently ravaging Prince Christian's face, will be one of the handsomest most fiercely hunted royal catches in Europe in ten years.
As mentioned in other posts - QEII and Queen Margrethe should already be in negotiations for Charlotte's hand for Christian. He's about 8 years older than she. Perfect. He'll be 32, she'll be 24 - imagine the wedding, just imagine it! The first royal wedding in how long where both bride and groom are actually - fully royal and HRHs in their own rights!

^* this should have read: "although the Scobie fan book on Meghan (and Harry) has fallen steeply in pre-order sales according to Amazon) . . .
