You have to admit, it would have been a little funny if the Duchess of Cambridge had busted out a third floral Erdem tonight. But no, she returned to form in a flowing pink Alexander McQueen gown and statement jewelry that screamed “Princess.” Perhaps she sensed in the universe that Meghan Markle would be making her own rebel fashion play…
It’s almost surprising we made it this far in the Scandinavian tour without a snowstorm disrupting the itinerary, but it finally happened. Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s final engagement in Stockholm at the Uppsala Airbase was canceled due to the weather. Instead, William and Kate flew straight to Oslo to begin the next leg of their tour after receiving a briefing on the Swedish Armed Forces’ operational capabilities.

A couple weeks ago we covered the life of Edward VII’s daughter, Maud of Wales, Queen of Norway. After Maud’s death in 1938, her son ascended the throne as Olav V in 1957. He and his wife, Märtha of Sweden, had three children, the youngest of whom was a son and heir. When Olav died in 1991, this son succeeded him on the throne as King Harald V and is still reigning today.
