--Over at the Jewel Vault, the Queen is back and all is well. Also, The Crown did well at the Golden Globes last night, so if you're just catching up on Netflix's royal drama, don't miss our jewel recaps of each episode.

--Here's a lovely photo of the Swedish royal family, taken last summer:

--Several of you sent this to me, and it's fascinating: Queen Elizabeth I’s long-lost skirt to go on display after being found on a church altar in Herefordshire. [Telegraph]

--And finally, Crown Princess Mette-Marit is a purple velvet dream, and it's everything. [Minmote]

Coming up this week: Spain takes its turn on the court dress stage.
