It doesn't seem like Astrid was bothered by the cold winds in Oslo.. Grin


This is cute and made me laugh. I think with age we should all be allowed to get away with a lot more. I now want to see Queen Elizabeth hike up her skirts.

That'll be when pigs fly. Lizzy thinks too highly of herself.

Astrid is really awesome.

And while I find this excessively charming with Princess Astrid, I am quite sure that I won't be of the same opinion when in 40 years or so Kate will do the same... Nerves

That's because unlike Kate, Astrid is not a serial flasher.

Yes she is, when Sonja removed the title of lady in waiting around 2000  Princess Astrid was allowed to keep hers, so she is the only lady in waiting at the norwegian court. The others has secretaries or advisers titles

 Jumping  Princess Astrid just became my all time favorite royal forever!  Thanks so much for the photo, she's a real deal, what we'd call in Texas a feisty, old broad (highest compliment!)

Mine, too. And oh would I ever love to have lunch with her someday, particularly if the lunch started with an akavit or two. Oh the tales she could tell.

With respect to her knee highs, I had lunch with an old friend the other day who was bemoaning the fact that her 85-year-old mother would now sometimes go out without wearing a bra. I told her that sometimes women reach an age at which the rest of the world can go jump in the lake as far as fashion proscriptions are concerned. They're just gonna be comfortable and the heck with what anyone else says. I bet Auntie Astrid has crammed herself into girdle and stockings and later into pantyhose -- or ``tights'' as you folks across the pond call 'em -- just about enough times in her life and she is OVER them.  Good for her!

Exactly.
Astrid is just like "I give a shit, it's raining and I want to save my dress". And rightly so. Makes me like her even more.
Because she did it on purpose. And not to show off her legs. Or because she did to forget to weigth her hemline.

Maybe Max had a hole in her umbrella? I like her dress. God love Astrid. She's such a good person - very dutiful. I hope Harald and Sonja have many more years on the throne. I really like Harald so much - he reminds me of my father.

Looks like the black tip of her umbrella collided with the ceiling construction she was walking under.

Dinner with Astrid sounds like a good plan. Especially when she starts spilling the beans on MM SmileyHalo

Oh of course you are correct. I don't know how I could have missed seeing that awning.

I just love that she's wearing knee high's beneath her elegant evening gown.  Keep it real, Astrid!
