Monday Tidbits for May 15: Gifts Aplenty and Carriages Galore

If you missed any of our Norwegian birthday coverage last week, you can find it all here. On to the next:

--The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have been on a visit to Northern Ireland and Ireland. At one stop (below), a special outfit for Camilla: a Magee tweed suit given to her as a gift during a visit to Donegal in May 2016 and a Claddagh brooch given to her as a gift during a visit to Galway in 2015.

--The internet has crowned Prince Sverre Magnus of Norway its new fave, following the prince's antics on the balcony at his grandparents' birthday celebration. [Mashable]

--Aww, this is nice: Big smiles from the Duke of Edinburgh as he watched his granddaughter, Lady Louise Windsor, made her carriage driving debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Her carriage was first driven by the Queen in 1943 and was tucked away in a barn until recently, when it was found and restored. [Express]

--Over at the Jewel Vault, the Queen herself was in casual mode (with a couple of brooches thrown in) to soak up the Royal Windsor Horse Show atmosphere.

--And finally, c'mon, how can you resist this?

Coming up this week: A stolen tiara! One we haven't covered in full, so look for that. Plus, more...
