Sunday Tidbits for March 27: Happy Easter!

Hellooooooo again! We're back up and running (for now, at least) after some technical difficulties. Let's catch up on a few of the things we missed:

--King Philippe and Queen Mathilde joined in their nation's mourning following Tuesday's tragic attacks in Brussels. Here is Philippe's address to his country with English subtitles, and here are some of the condolence messages sent from other royal families around the world. [Telegraph, Hello]

--Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel thanked those that sent greetings and congratulations for Prince Oscar's birth with the release of a beautiful photo of Victoria and her snuggly son.

--Plus, a new picture of Princess Estelle and her little brother. (Estelle was wearing one of her mother's old dresses, of course.) [Twitter]

--According to Billed-Bladet, Crown Princess Mary's new tiara was purchased by Mary herself at an auction (which, if true: GOOD ON YOU, MARY). (They also say it has pearls that I personally don't see in current shots.) Anyway, see more in the last Sunday Tidbits comments, courtesy of lovely commenter Fantasyprincess.

--Mary also gave an interview to Berlingske about her work with gender equality and protection of the rights of women and girls. The Danish interview is accompanied by some striking new photos. [Berlingske]

--Over at the Jewel Vault, the Queen prepared for Easter with Thursday's Royal Maundy Service. She also managed to sneak in a girls' night out. Don't forget, Our Queen at 90 airs tonight in the U.K. at 8 pm on ITV. (I've heard no word yet on plans to air it in other countries.)

--I also have QEII's Easter outfit and brooch up at the Vault right now, and we'll chat about other Easter outfits here tomorrow.

--And finally, I don't even know where to start with the parade of cute that was Prince Harry's visit to Nepal. Kensington Palace's Instagram isn't a bad place to begin, including some pictures taken by Harry with his own captions.

Coming up this week: Royal Easter and more...

Sunday Tidbits is your place throughout the week to share things we haven't covered yet and for all your off topic chats. Enjoy!
