Monday Tidbits for September 25: A Horse, Of Course

Starting with some cuteness:

--Princess Madeleine posted pics of Princess Leonore reuniting with her horse Heidi, awww. Heidi was a christening present from Leonore's duchy, Gotland; the two first met in 2016.

--Mark your calendars: Sweden's Prince Gabriel will be christened in the Royal Chapel at Drottingholm Palace on Friday, December 1st.

--Over at the Jewel Vault, QEII's Balmoral sojourn continues and sightings are being compiled right here. Last week gave us an opportunity to examine some Balmoral interiors, in addition to the usual Sunday church car pics.

--A brooch alert of a different sort: Queen Victoria's 14th birthday gift to her daughter Princess Beatrice was this turquoise, diamond, and gold brooch from Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent. And now you can get out your checkbook and make it yours, because it is coming up for sale at a November auction. [Express, Tennants]

--Prince Harry found a new chauffeur while in Canada. [BBC]

--And finally, here's a blindfolded Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. I could give you an explanation, but really, isn't it better without?
