Tuesday Tidbits for May 1: More Babies, More Tiaras, More Etc.

We missed our Tidbits last week - blame it on the Cambridge kid - so let's catch up:

--Prince Louis of Cambridge wasn't the only one making his big entrance in April: Princess Caroline confirmed that Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo welcomed their third child, a son named Maximilian Rainier, on April 19th.

--In other recent arrival news, Princess Madeleine shared some sweet photos with baby Princess Adrienne. [Photos: Erika Gerdemark, Royal Court]

--A behind-the-scenes tiara peek! Historic Royal Palaces shared a fascinating video about getting the Fife tiaras ready for display at Kensington Palace.

--Along sorta similar lines, this is an interesting read: The Art of Dressing Mannequins in Rare and Historic Garments. [Atlas Obscura]

--Princess Isabella of Denmark turned 11 in April and her new birthday photos - taken by her mom, Crown Princess Mary - feature her favorite pastime: hanging out with Lancet the horse. Eleven-year-old me is retroactively jealous. [Photos: HRH The Crown Princess]

--And finally, here's a bonus tiara shot! The Khedive of Egypt Tiara, photographed as it takes part in an upcoming exhibition at Koldinghus (check out more info here in a previous Tidbits mention). Queen Margrethe, Princess Benedikte, and Queen Anne-Marie will team up to open the exhibition.

Coming up this week: A Scandinavian update, and more...
