Monday Tidbits for September 12: New Friends, Great Speeches

Here we are again:

--King Harald went viral with a speech he gave at a palace garden party on September 1st (I shared a photo of the family at the event last week). If you haven't seen it, it's worth your time. English subtitles for a portion of the speech are in the video below; the Royal Court has an English translation of the full transcript. [Kongehuset]

--Check out some rare photographs from inside the Winter Palace, residence of Tsar Nicholas II, before the revolution. [Russia Beyond The Headlines]

--Princess Mako made an official visit to Paraguay, and a lovely kimono was involved. [ParisMatch]

--Princess Madeleine shared a sweet snap of Prince Nicolas making a new friend last week, captioning it "Love at first sight."

--Click over for model David Gandy, stay for the Prince of Wales and his natty evening kilt attire. [Hello]

--And finally, over at the Jewel Vault: Her Maj does the Elie Saab thing before Elie Saab was doing the Elie Saab thing, plus one mega brooch that desperately needs to reappear.

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