FYI: The rest of the photos from this engagement of Maxima’s — she went to the Red Cross — do show that everyone is standing very far apart. Having said that — and you know that I love her — at this point in history, I really don’t think she needs to go places. The Red Cross doesn’t need someone to raise their global profile and I’m sure they’ve got a lot to do right now. She can promote them on social media without taking her driver and security people out. Great cape, though — and I’m glad that it seems like Victoria and Daniel have seemingly stopped doing engagements, especially given that (as many of you pointed out last week), Daniel had a kidney transplant. Just, stay home, y’all. This is what your social media is FOR.
Max and Wax also went to the National Institute for Public Health:
I love that coat, and I also feel like we can be confident that Maxima is doing her own hair for these things. (Correctly.)
Anyway! Around these parts, we took a look back at BOTH of Princess Anne’s weddings and it was very entertaining.

This is an hour-long video of Queen Silva talking about her jewels. I couldn’t get the English subtitles to come up but even without them it was soothing.

I love that whoever took this pic made sure to get as much as William’s printer in it as possible:
This is nice:
I see Chaz is a Dick Francis fan:
I saw some glossy mag was gushing over Kate’s priceless books here. Y’all, they’re (CHARMING) Penguin Classics! Anyone can buy these!
This is an amusingly relatable set-up:
The Danes are turning to elegant puffer coats in this time of need:
They’re doing a video meeting here, and also the inside of this house is really good????
NONE knows what six feet looks like. FARTHER APART:
