Royals Descend on Sweden in Serious Party Frocks

Hello-Hello!

We’re experiencing a bit of a Friday frenzy following yesterday’s delightful afternoon grueling team-building workshop.

The company’s off-site meeting was loads of fun very intense, and The Consort is sporting a sunburn new skills were learned at the seminar.  However, it was also time-consuming, so we’ve many little tidbits and lots of photos today, clearly a case of style over substance, with our apologies.  We begin with a quick reminder about the Kiel James Patrick giveaway over at Beach Bum and Baby.

Click here to scoot over to the Giveaway, entries close at midnight tonight (Friday, 6.18.2010).

We also have some final images from Royal Ascot, below we see Britain’s Princesses Anne and Beatrice arriving at Ladies Day yesterday.

Next, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie appear to be pondering their race cards (L), on the right, Joan Collins was also at Ladies Day.

We loved these two images of Princess Eugenie.

Day Three at Ascot also featured Charlie Watts (the Rolling Stones) looking dapper, and even more interesting accessories.

We leave the topic with two related images, both sights we should have expected but failed to foresee: the Vuvuzela hat at Ascot, and on the right, Prince William with one of the horns, seen during his visit to a charity in Botswana he supports.

Indeed.

Next, a reminder for those who like to be the first person in the palace with the new things: Burberry Beauty debuts this weekend.

It would seem wardrobe mishaps may have been averted by Mr. Westling.

Fretting about the train on one’s gown can be nerve-wracking.
