Royal Color Scheme of the Day: April 6

Check out these similarly-hued ladies while I sit here furiously resisting the urge to make a 50 Shades of You Know What joke, okay?

Crown Princess Mette-Marit attended a chamber music festival in Oslo last week.
Black + white bouclé tweed = close enough to throw in with the grays, and this is a good dress for our friend M-M. (As with many garments, it's probably done a bit of a disservice here in an action shot, but I like that she looks like she's in a still from a shampoo commercial.) AND, she put a brooch on it! This is an interesting piece, maybe with baroque pearls or something of that nature. She's worn it in the past, and you can see here for a better look.

 Queen Mathilde commemorated the 100th anniversary of the execution of Gabrielle Petit in Brussels on Sunday.

I love a stripe. This one is playful, yet still 100% solemn and appropriate for this event. A stripe that does double duty, I love even more.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the investiture of honorary doctors at the University of Salamanca yesterday.

I always have time for Letizia in Carolina Herrera. I also always have time for an ensemble that could have walked off the set of The Good Wife. This is a very simple gray suit, but it is a very good one. (We've seen it before here; see here for a full gallery from this current event.)
