Ooooh, you guys. In addition to a new event from Kate — at which she wore one of my favorite McQueens — QE2 opened Parliament this week, so prepare yourself for SOME CROWNS. Also in this week’s round-up: more Sophie Wessex than usual, extra pics from the Queen’s 90th shindig on Sunday, Wills throwing a mean left hook, national costumes, hats, and JOAN COLLINS!
Here at GFY earlier in the week, we covered Kate’s bizarro look at Sunday’s hoedown, and her super cute skirt the next day.
As a programming note, Wills and Kate (and maybe Harry? I’m unclear) are popping out to the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday, so make sure you pop back over the week and check it out.
Around the horn:
– Our friends at Duchess Diary rounded up 37 of their favorite hats of Queen Maxima
– The Court Jeweller covered a recent tiara auction. I hope one of the winning bidders lives among us, Fug Nation. I really want the last one. I better save my pennies.
– Over at People, Wills gave some insight on what’s happening at home (George is loud and they’re trying to figure out schools).
– At Hello! a salute to Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary’s wedding, which was 12 years ago this week. Queen Margrethe looks WACKY.
— Also at Hello! Mike Tindall talks about how Mia came to be holding QE2′s handbag in the Queen’s birthday portraits.
And, after the jump, we have LOADS of social media stuff this week. (Sometimes, social media gets better snaps than I do. I would never want to deprive you; if you click on the embedded tweet, it should let you flip through the photos.)
