Weekly Royal Fashion Awards: June 23-July 6

We have much to catch up on, so I'll just hit the highlights: my favorites for each of our regulars. No, scratch that - let's say my favorites and/or the talking points. Can't be too generous.

Best in Trips
Queen Máxima
Visiting Denmark
I love this color on her, and I love that she's sporting Dolce and Gabbana for a change. Plus, how can you not adore the dynamic consort duo, Henrik and Máx? That's like 20% of my ultimate royal dinner party, right there.

Video: Opening her namesake park, by bike
We'll give her two nods, though, because biking around in your hat and dress can not be ignored.

Best in BFFs
Crown Princess Mary (and Princess Benedikte)

Video: Visiting Germany and attending the opening of the World Equestrian Festival
Mary paid a visit to Germany that prevented her from attending the Dutch visit, which was a bummer. But instead, she hung out (and seemed to be having a grand old time) with her aunt-in-law in Germany! If we don't get to see a partial reunion of the crown princess M gang, this'll do. Sartorially, I'm particularly enchanted by her carriage ride outfit, and if I could wrangle her an invite to Ascot, I'd be on that right now.

Best Participant
Princess Mathilde
Visiting a youth camp
Obviously, this past week or so was a big on for the Belgian monarchy...it was not a big one for their sartorial show, though, so we'll award Mathilde's prowess with the wave (or whatever) here. 

Best in Portraits
Crown Princess Mette-Marit
These two crazy kids turn 40 this summer, and so we got a new set of pics, of which this one (and this dress) was my very favorite.

Most Typical
Princess Letizia

Video: Attending a military graduation
Yup, she's at it again: business casual at a formal military event. Nothing more to say, really. 

And an Honorable Mention to...
Princess Marie
During the Dutch visit
When Mary's away, the mice will play. Well done.

And an Extra Honorable Mention to...
Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall
I'm sure you've heard the news: another great-grandchild is on the way for QEII, as the Tindalls confirmed that they are expecting. Congrats to them!

Who was your best dressed in the last couple weeks?
