Weekly Royal Fashion Awards: April 28-May 4

It was a very quiet week last week...well, apart from the main event, of course! Nevertheless, a few people did have other engagements going on, so here we go - a special video edition (mostly just through Saturday, with the rest to come in our next weekly review):

Best Dressed
The Duchess of Cambridge
Visiting a children's hospice, click here for video.
It's Spring-y, it's sherbet-y, it's delicious! My non-inauguration favorite last week.

Best in Sparkle
Princess Mathilde
Presenting the Princess Mathilde Prize, click here for video.
This one's better in action, as you get some sparkle going on; the outfit itself is kind of odd, with a short top and trousers.

Best in Black
Queen Máxima
Attending a remembrance ceremony, click here for video.
A somber first engagement for the new King and Queen. (Máx was also in black for one pre-inauguration event, a rehearsal with the family.)

Best in Standard
Crown Princess Victoria
On a 2 day visit to Västra Götaland. Click here for video and here for another.
It was your standard visit for Victoria and Daniel - couple of day engagements (videos linked above) and a dinner in the evening. They brought Estelle with them...and once again, it was the highlight. 

And a Hatted Honorable Mention to...
Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie
Stéphanie, Guillaume, Maria Teresa, and Henri at the closing of the Octave. Click here for video.
The good news: Stéphanie got the memo and stopped borrowing hats from Beatrix's closet. This is fancy (it sparkles!). The bad news: MT's pretty much just wearing a visor, I mean, you can dress it up all you want, but that's a hat without the hat part.

Who was your best dressed last week?
