Monday Tidbits for July 25: Taking to the Sea, and More

In case you missed my note on Friday's post, we're swapping over to our usual summer schedule since things are starting to slow down on the current events front. All that means is Tidbits will be on Mondays and we still post Monday through Friday, with one post instead of the usual two on Thursdays for the rest of the summer.

And so, without further ado, some tidbits for your Monday:

--Prince George turned three, and of course there were some new snaps to celebrate. The family obsession with stripes lives on! [Hello]

--Those other Cambridges - you know, the ones with their names on the swing George commandeered - will not be attending the Rio Olympic Games, so they had to take to the sea at home to get in their mandatory matching team shirt time. [Zimbio]

--Over in Japan, Crown Prince Naruhito, Crown Princess Masako, and Princess Aiko visited Nara and Kyoto. I rather like Masako's long gray dress, especially the wrap detail on the top. [Imperial Family of Japan Blog]

--I bet you this "mishap" was the best part of Prince Charles' day. [Express]

--And finally, also taking to the sea and wishing everyone a good summer: Princess Ingrid Alexandra, in this beautiful shot shared by Crown Princess Mette-Marit on her Instagram.

Coming up this week: A little glamour in Monaco, and at Buckingham Palace too...

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