Royal Outfit of the Day: January 22

Claire Coombs married Prince Laurent of Belgium on April 12, 2003.
Princess Claire celebrated her 40th birthday on January 18th. I'm a bit late, but whatever - we need an occasion to revisit the everlasting loveliness of her wedding gown. Oh heavens, I do love this one. The design may be simple, but it's got a grand train to bring it up to the full royal level, and that lace overlay on the bodice is the perfect thing to pair with Queen Paola's antique family veil. The Natan label doing what it does best, really.
