Tuesday Tidbits for June 27: Summer Photos, Summer Dresses

Here we go:

--ICYMI, we finished up Royal Ascot this weekend with Days 4 and 5 over at the Jewel Vault, including QEII and the few royal guests that were in attendance. And the Queen wasn't done; she and Prince Philip, in his first public appearance after his recent hospital stay, enjoyed some polo on Sunday.

--Guess which royal drew this frank comment: "She was such an attractive woman, why be so haughty, arrogant and awkward?" That and a few more behind the scenes royal tidbits in this interview with photographer Reginald Davis. [Express]

--Princess Charlene was joined on the balcony by a pair of curly-haired munchkins for the St. John's Day festivities in Monaco. [Facebook]

--A German princely wedding, and one heck of a tiara to boot: Princess Sophie of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg married Count Constantin Fugger von Babenhausen this weekend wearing a substantial family diamond tiara with emerald drops. [Primavera24]

--And finally, Queen Mathilde will happily co-sign Princess Estelle's idea for an airy white dress for a summer day at the palace.
