Sunday Tidbits for July 19: Tall Royal News and More

This tidbits edition brings you news from some of our more towering royal dudes, and also some sparklies and some fashion to see. (But not from the dudes. They wear suits.) (Flight suits are still suits.)

--Prince Harry's bringing the Invictus Games to Orlando next year. [USA Today]

--The Royal Palace in Stockholm will show an exhibit on Princess Lilian's fashion, including her wedding gown. Designs for a Princess - The Lilian Look! starts on August 29th and marks what would have been the late Swedish royal family member's 100th birthday (on August 30, 2015). [Kungahuset]

--Breaking News: King Felipe found somebody taller than himself! Obviously it took an NBA player (Pau Gasol, who was presented with the Camino Real Award) to get the job done. [ABC]

-In other Tall Royal News: Prince William started his new job as an air ambulance pilot, an event which I feel really needed some aviator shades and a "Take My Breath Away" soundtrack. [Telegraph]

--In Tall Tiara News, Luxarazzi chats about the Bavarian Ruby and Spinel Tiara, which I suspect is the closest you'll ever come to a diamond top hat. [Luxarazzi]

--Tatler offers you 10 Rules for Wearing a Tiara, but I think not even these will prepare you for that Bavarian big gun. [Tatler]

--And finally, over at the Jewel Vault, the Queen gave us a great look at an Australian wedding gift featuring opals. [Jewel Vault]
