Silvia looks pretty much like her normal event self although her hair is a bit big this time around. I love that tiara, it is one of my favorites.   

Victoria is lovely; she looks regal and comfortable in her own skin. Her hair is a bit more severe than most tiara events, I usually think the Swedes have the best tiara hair. Oooh, the emerald necklace is just    The last couple times I have seen Victoria, I have thought her face looked a little fuller and hope that we might see one more little one added to their family.

Sofia. Well, what can one say? She loves her center parted hair and she looks very pleased with herself.  Not a fan of the material of her dress; it looks like cheap satin to me but the style is okay. She just looks like someone playing dress-up to me.

Pictures from the gala dinner

What in the hell is MM wearing?!  She looks ridiculous.  What an ugly, ugly dress.   Thumb down

so much money, such bad style, no one can help MM Laughing
 but Sonja looks great, I love her dress, lovely Thumb up

MM's sense of style deteriorated over the years. She needs to fire her stylist ASAP, or if she's doing this herself... she's just a lost case.

They don't look in love at all, not even touching! At least lock arms!  Yikes

Have we ever seen CP hold his son? We always see S holding Alexander, and i'm wondering if there's any chance to allow to the father of the baby actually hold the baby. Apart from the official photosoot, I don't remember any other pic of CP hugging Alex.  Not to mention the christening day...

I am of the opinion that CP gets to hold him -> when there are no camera around.    Snare

I don't know the answer to the question about whether ``sponsored'' dancers receive more compensation. But pretty generally, ballet dancers don't make a lot of money until they are principal dancers. Then they often do guest appearances with other companies that certainly earn them more money.

My information is mainly about SF Ballet. I know that in 2008 -- the most recent year for which figures are publicly known -- principal dancers were paid $1,846.00 per week, with 42 weeks of paid work per year. This would be for no more than eight performances per week. Surely the compensation has increased since then, and maybe the sponsorships are a way to thrown a little extra money at the bigger stars the company wants to retain.

Also, when you're really a major dancer, there are opportunities for product endorsements, generally of the most high-end kind, like luxury jewelry, wristwatches, fragrances and the like. I think SF Ballet's Maria Kotchekova has quite a few of those, and so, I assume, must Yuan Yuan Tan, particularly back in her native Shanghai.

Bottom line, though, is that if you are looking for a career that will make you wealthy, ballet is not for you. Ballet dancers' careers are typically short, generally ending around the age of 35-40. And there are often a lot of injuries along the way.  Ballet is incredibly hard on a dancer's body, and it's not just the blistered toes.

Not to digress too much, but the male dancers leave me in awe. In the course of a ballet, they often have to perform huge jumps, pirouettes with multiple multiple turns, and then lift a 100-lb female dancer up over their heads many times. I think they work harder than almost any athlete in the world. They have to be very strong, and yet perform with grace and elegance.

This all may be more than you want to know, but hey, ballet is and always has been one of my major passions in life and I can be an utter bore about it when given any kind of opportunity.

I have yet to listen to one of Kate's speeches without cringing - and this one is no different.   No

It may just be me but when Kate does reads her speeches it always sounds like it is the first time she has spoken them out loud.  Add in that fake accent and lack of inflection and she sounds disconnected to the words. 

I wonder if she ever has any input into the writing of them?  I doubt it.

The fact that she has to concentrate on her pronunciation and the accent divides her focus when she is reading a speech.

I believe Kate needs to read through these speeches - aloud - several times before she reads them at her events; it would help with her intonation, delivery and maybe, even her plausibility.

Just my opinion.
