Zara Tindall at Land Rover Launch

On September 6, 2012, Zara and Mike Tindall attended the Land Rover launch of the all new Range Rover at the Royal Ballet School in London. For this occasion, Zara wore a navy, short-sleeved Bastyan dress with embellishments around the neck which gave the illusion of a necklace. She was wearing a pair of black Christian Louboutin peep-toed heels, as well. The Queen's eldest granddaughter also wore a pair of simple diamond stud earrings and carried a Anya Hindmarch clutch.

The Range Rover that had it debut was the fourth generation of the iconic line. This was marketed as the first lightweight aluminum SUV; it was also the lightest SUV in its class. The car was designed and engineered at the Land Rover development center in the United Kingdom. A hybrid version was released later. Zara and Mike posed by a silver version of the new vehicle, as well.

It was no surprise that Zara and Mike attended the event. In 2006, Zara was announced as the new face of Land Rover. She regularly attends events for the company, and they sponsor and help fund her stables. 

At the time of the event, Zara and Mike had just been married for little over a year. Zara's first pregnancy would be announced close to a year later. 

Princess Madeleine at Room for Children in London

As one of my favorite royals, I couldn't wait to write about the id's we found of Princess Madeleine's outfit at the London Southbank Centre on Valentine's Day! Sarah found that Madeleine was in a new Vilshenko blouse. It was a combination of a cream blouse style and a pink one from the same designer. The blouse featured the short caped sleeves of the pink blouse with the design of the cream one. 

Madeleine wore her black Miu Miu boots, as well with a black pleated skirt by Valentino. Her Royal Highness also carried a new white clutch by the brand, SAVAS.

Sarah goes into more detail about her outfit here. You can read more about her visit here from Royal Central.

The Princess, who was on her first official engagement of 2017, looked thrilled to read with the children at the "Room for Children" at the London Southbank Centre that had just opened. The room has literature from all of the Nordic countries. 

She told Expressen that Princess Leonore was not big on reading, but she often finds Prince Nicolas with a book in his hand trying to read. She said, "He has always loved books! So when you can not find him, then he’s sitting with a little book himself, up and down, like he was trying to look into it. It’s very fun, so he will probably be a bookworm!”

The "Room for Children" was created by the Swedish Institute and the Kulturhuset/Stadsteatern Stockholm. The Poetry Library and Embassy of Sweden in London helped in the building of the room with the help of the Nordic Embassies and Representations in London, UK. Furthermore, IKEA and Swedish publishers were of assistance.

The aim is to get children from ages 0 to 10 to read. The library will remain open throughout 2017.

This was Princess Madeleine's first official engagement in London since moving there after the birth of Prince Nicolas in 2015.

The wedding of Peter and Autumn Phillips

It was on May 17, 2008, that then Autumn Kelly married Peter Phillips, the eldest grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Canadian Autumn chose to wear English designer Sassi Holford's design for her wedding gown, which featured a two-yard train. It was made of Chantilly lace and Italian duchesse satin. The lace ensured that her shoulders were covered, inkeeping with royal tradition. She wore the Festoon Tiara loaned to her by The Princess Royal.

The wedding appeared to have both British and Canadian/American traditions. For example, Autumn had older bridesmaids who wore different colored dresses than the bride; in British royal weddngs, bridesmaids tend to be younger and wear dresses in similar colors to the bride.

Autumn had six bridesmaids including Zara Tindall (nee Phillips) and Stephanie Phillips, Peter's sisters. Stephanie is Captain Mark Phillips's daughter from his second marriage. They wore green strapless dresses by American designer, Vera Wang.

Raised in the English-speaking West Island region of Montreal, Quebec, Autumn converted from Roman Catholicism to Anglicanism before her wedding so that Peter could remain in line to the British throne. She did retain her Canadian citizenship. 

The wedding caused a bit of controversy after Peter and Autumn sold photos of their wedding exclusively to Hello! Magazine and granted them an interview before the wedding. They were reportedly paid half a million pounds for the spread. The magazine published 59 pages of photos from the wedding. This decision angered some MPs, who called in to question the role of minor royals, and it is not believed the Queen was asked for permission before they agreed with the magazine. 

Their reception was held at Frogmore House. 

They have two daughters: Savannah (b. December 29, 2010) and Isla (b. March 29, 2012). Due to Autumn retaining her Canadian citizenship, both Savannah and Isla are dual Canadian/UK citizens - making them the first and closest Canadians to the throne.

Ladies Day is an event that Zara is seen attending often. As an equestrian, she shares her love of horses with her mother, Princess Anne and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. 

Ladies Day at Glorious Goodwood occurs annually and is one of the most exclusive races of each year. It takes place in Goodwood, Chichester, United Kingdom.

During this time, Zara was expecting her first child, Mia. Her pregnancy was announced only a month before. Mia Grace was born on January 17, 2014, at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. 

This was Zara's first appearance after the announcement of her pregnancy. 

Swedish royal ladies at the 2016 Swedish Royal Family summer photocall

We are taking a look back to the 2016 summer photo session of the Swedish Royal Family at Solliden Palace. The session came as a surprise to most as it was not announced ahead of time. It took place the day after Crown Princess Victoria's birthday (b. July 14, 1977) on July 15.

Princess Sofia was in a blue top by Etolie Isabel Marant, according to Laura. She also wore a white version of her Castaner wedges that she had previously been seen in at Victoria's birthday celebrations. Sofia was also wearing her green Project Playground bracelet.

Princess Estelle was pictured sitting in between her grandparents, while her mother held her baby brother, Prince Oscar. Princess Sofia held Prince Alexander, who seemed to be asleep for part of the session. Little Prince Nicolas, according to his mom, was quite tired and eventually began to cry. Princess Leonore was none too thrilled with the photo session. She wanted to run around and play causing her family to chase her down. She did finally pose for photos in her mother's arms. You can see these in the video from Expressen below. 

The Swedish Royal Family did not release any of the photos themselves outside of a collage they posted to their official Instagram. 

Princess Charlene at 2016 Monaco Grand Prix

For the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix, Princess Charlene wore a Haider Ackermann creation in white and pink. Heaven found the designer of this outfit.

Heaven has discovered that, in 2014, Princess Marie wore a beautiful gray Rikke Gudnitz design for the New Years Court. The gown featured just a slight train and short, capped sleeves for the top. The design for the top was a lighter blue peplum over the smooth cloth covering the rest of the top and skirt. 

She has worn the Danish Rikke Gudnitz designs many times before. 

Princess Marie wore her Order of the Elephant collar, which is the highest order in Denmark. She wore her brunette hair up with the Diamond Floral Tiara. This is also the tiara she wore on her wedding day.

It is always held at Christian VII's Palace at Amalienborg in Copenhagen. Invitees include government officials and other notable and influential people from around the country.
