Royal Roundup: January 24, 2016

We’ve had a week full of royal birthday girls, so let’s dive in.

The Countess of Wessex celebrated her 51st birthday on January 20th (the photo below is from her 50th  birthday last year).

Queen Mathilde of Belgium celebrated her 43rd birthday on the same day and she spent it at the World Economic Forum in Davos, like all serious Queens should.

Acouple of days later on the 22nd, the King and Queen of Belgium met up with the Dutch King and Queen for a sparklier event – an opening concert in Brussels for the Dutch presidency of the European Union council.

They got the best seats in the house, natch and everyone looked like a million bucks.

Also, Nicole Kidman has been spotted in the same Nina Ricci dress that Maxima chose. Who wore it better? My vote goes to Max.

Back to royal birthdays, Princess Ingrid of Norway turned 12 on January 21st and some more new photos were released for the occasion. Clearly Ingrid has a thing or to to teach us about hair braiding – or do you think her mom Crown Princess Mette-Marit does it?

 Mette-Marit recently shared that the family starts birthdays the best possible breakfast, cake:

“The whole family brings homemade cake and gifts to the bed – it’s the loveliest start to the day,” Crown Princess Mette-Marit told the Norwegian Radio station NRK P3 about the family’s traditional birthday celebration. [People]

Also, The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor has some great insights into the heirloom necklace that Ingrid is wearing here.

Meanwhile, Princess Athena (daughter of  Prince Joachim and Princess Marie of Denmark) turned four on January 24 and this new picture was shared for the occasion:

To round our our recap, Princess Charlene and Prince Albert had an audience with Pope Francis and the internet suddenly became very interested in the privilege du blanc.

Hope you all have a great rest of your weekend – back tomorrow for a chat on Princess Marie-Chantal’s wedding dress.
