I hate that washed out trend. I wish they would all stop that.

Agreed! She's clearly so happy and at a great stage in her life. She's healthy on the inside and it shows on the outside. A great hubby who adores and supports her (and vice versa), two adorable kiddos, great relationship with her family (minus the odd father.....   Whistle ). Life is good for the CP!

Nice pictures...
I just can't deal with her and the hair. I seriously wonder if she has a bald spot, some kind of hair loss? I can't come up with any other reason for the 24/7, 365 day BUN! (Occasionally a ponytail but also skinned back from her face tight as can be). Unreal!

Agree. What's the deal with white on white on white? To make her look angelic?  Angel

And what's the deal with the side bun? It shows in every shot even when it's a straight on shot. It has to be a side bun. It looks weird to have that peaking through in every shot.

I actually don't think the photos are that bad.  They've photoshopped her wrinkles, but otherwise, she looks like she usually does.  Thinking

I also wish she'd stop with the constant buns.  She's got nice, thick hair, and it's looked really great every time she's worn it down.

Perhaps the bun/ponytail is simply what she feels most comfortable with. It's a pretty classic style, in no way offensive. For how many years have we seen Beatrix with her helmet hairdo? Elizabeth has pretty much had the same style forever too...

She does look lovely with her hair down, but this is a classic do & probably most comfortable with her hair (thick, frizzy hair sisters unite!)

I'm not going to pick apart the photos because no matter the composition etc etc, they are still lovely because Vic looks lovely herself. She comes across so warm in these. (Despite the icy white on white)

Great gifs LMVDA Star

I love the photos, even with the photoshop. The white outfit makes her look fresh and youthful.
The hair, I've come to terms with. I think she would look better with it down, it would deflect some attention from the jaw, but the bun is comfortable and professional.
I'm really looking forward to the birthday events, does anyone know if foreign royals are invited? I 've seen videos from her 25th birthday (i think its 25th) and many of the other euros royals attended.
