Monday Tidbits for November 6: Family Outings and Sparkly Nights

It'll be a state visit-filled week (YAY) but first things first:

--Crown Princess Mary and the kids had a family day out at the Hubertus Hunt yesterday, sharing a nice video and some family snapshots on the Danish royal family's social media accounts. Unfortunately, they also witnessed an accident right in front of their balcony, but luckily it seems the injured man will be okay. [Lokalavisen, Instagram, Facebook, BT]
HRH The Crown Princess/The Royal House

--Crown Princess Mette-Marit filled in for Queen Sonja (who was out with back pain) at an engagement last week, where she revealed that Princess Ingrid Alexandra nearly had a very different name: Tyra Eufemia! I kinda like it. Now I want to know second-place name choices for all the royal kids. [NRK]

--Queen Sonja recovered enough to accompany Queen Margrethe to a gala concert in Copenhagen, where an award winner from the Queen Sonja International Music Competition performed with Denmark's Radio Symphony Orchestra. I am especially into Sonja's sleek sparkly jacket with a long skirt. Queens' night out! [Kongehuset]
Sven Gj. Gjeruldsen, The Royal Court

--The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are on a big tour of Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, and India, and it's been a festival of every long, flowy outfit in Cams' closet. Including this flattering pink number, which she paired with her Van Cleef & Arpels Snowflake Earrings. [Telegraph, Zimbio, Jewel Vault]

Coming up this week: We'll have coverage of state visits in Spain and the Belgians in India, stay tuned...
