Monday Tidbits for May 21: So, the Rest of the World...

I regret to inform those of you that are salty about the amount of royal wedding posts that we still have a tiara to cover and this week will also bring the first post-wedding appearance of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. But the big events move out of Britain by the end of the week, with the promise of some tiara action to pull you through. Check out the "Coming up this week" section at the end of Tidbits for more.

In the meantime, bits and bobs from elsewhere:

--Isn't this a cute dress for Queen Margrethe? Super breezy even with the addition of her order brooches (she's receiving credentials from ambassadors).

--And finally, the festivities for Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday are kicking off. He and Crown Princess Mary hosted a dinner Friday celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Crown Prince Frederik Fund. Mary repeated a Temperley gown. Speaking of Fred's bday...

Coming up this week: A lot! Coverage of the Netherlands/Luxembourg state visit (state banquet, yay!), British royal garden fun including the newlyweds, and hopefully another busy weekend ahead with Frederik's birthday on Saturday (a balcony appearance and a gala dinner with foreign royal friends are on the books).

Tidbits is your spot for royal topics we haven't covered separately on the blog, all week long. Please mind the comment policy, and enjoy!
