Monday Tidbits for April 10: Remembrances and Welcomes

Hello hello, let's go...

--Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel made an emotional visit this weekend to the site of last week's terrible Stockholm attack. King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who were on a trip to Brazil at the time and returned home early, will lead the royal family at a service in memory of the victims today. [People]

--The Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry joined Canada's Governor General, the Canadian Prime Minister, and the French President in France yesterday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. [BBC]
Kensington Palace

--It was a week full of travel for the Prince of Wales, as he and the Duchess of Cornwall also visited Italy, Vatican City, and Austria. I loved this embellished coat on Cams in Austria. (And wished she'd left her tiered coffee filter ensemble at home.) [Zimbio]
UK in Austria

--We also covered the biggest bling moment of the couple's Italy trip over at the Jewel Vault. Plus: a skull and crossbones for the Queen, and a memorial for Lord Snowdon.

--And finally, Queen Margrethe's spring stay at Fredensborg Palace began with a torchlit welcome from the citizens of Fredensborg, a picturesque annual tradition. [YouTube]
