Monday Tidbits for May 8: Color Blocking and Colorful Hats

Looking forward to a big royal party in Norway this week. Until then:

--There's some good color blocking from Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie in this interview she and her husband gave to Place Royale (in French), complete with a matching purse. [Facebook]

--Here's a rare appearance: the Duchess of Kent turned up to celebrate a school's 50th anniversary. [Bucks Free Press]

--Remember the Duchess of Windsor's Schiaparelli lobster dress? Actress Kristen Scott Thomas took the modern version out for a spin last week. [Red Carpet Fashion Awards]

--Double the interesting hats for Princess Benedikte on duty in Denmark recently: great stripes and you know I love the purple. [Nordjyske, Billed-Bladet]

--Over at the Jewel Vault: Prince William pitches in.

--Here's a headline designed to get my clicks: Curious eight-year-old girl asked the Queen about the Crown Jewels - and got a reply! [Examiner]

--And finally, just a little tiara love to start your week: Cartier's take on a coral tiara, up for auction in June from the Metropolitan Opera Guild.

Coming up this week: The aforementioned birthday fun in Norway (maybe open post style? If streaming is open internationally, I'll let ya know), plus catch ups from elsewhere and Kate takes Luxembourg...
