I think with most European culture's folk costumes there is a difference between what is worn by a matron and by an unmarried woman. Often, in olden times, part of the post-ceremony ritual would involve doing the bride's hair up int he matron's headdress for the first time. Also, sometimes the bride would ``dance the crown off'' at her wedding party, marking the last time she appeared as a matron.

So certainly Madeline will be wearing what might be called in Norwegian a skaut or head scarf. Many of the matron's headresses in Scandinavia are incredibly elaborate and require intense effort at starching and ironing. (Many of the pre-Vatican II nuns' habits had elaborate headresses too, mainly derived from what matrons or widows would wear at the time that the particular community adopted its habit).

The most elaborate skaut or headdress I've ever seen is worn by matrons in Hardanger, Norway. I don't know how many people are left who can actually arrange one of these properly. You can see it here:

Madeline will get of easy, by comparison.

From Yogyakarta:

Current Sultan (Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X) and his Queen, Gusti Kanjeng Ratu Hemas


The batik motif is Parang Rusak (broken blade), which is reserved for the Sultan and his immediate family. Only the Royal family is allowed to use this motif. There used to be severe punishments for others, but I guess now it's just a "Really?!"


The old, old Sultan
(Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono VI)



And court dress (for the Sultan and Queen) and wedding dress for the princess (GKR Bendoro), greeting the President.
The sultan and the queen wears an iteration of the batik motif, superimposed with royal Naga.



From Surakarta (sister-Kingdom to Yogyakarta)
the current Monarch: Sri Susuhunan Pakubuwono XII

Great thread, PeDe  Star

Those pics with the ladies in costumes and the guys in suits look so awkward. The guys should be getting in on the fun as well  Grin

For me the only false note was seeing Charlene and Albert in Saami drakt.  It's entirely appropriate for the members of the Norwegian and Danish royal families to don this clothing, but there was something really false to my eyes about seeking the Monaco royals similarly attired.

Princess Astrid in Lampung traditional dress and headpiece.
Lampung is one of Indonesia's province located on the island of Sumatra. It was once a kingdom, before joining the Republic as a province. However, the royal attributes are still locally upheld as adat.

Princess Astrid was given the title "Suhunan Ratu Mahkota"





The headpiece, siger or sigokh, has seven or nine peaks. They are either used to mark royalty, nobility, or used as bridal crowns. The bigger, more elaborate, and heavier it is, the higher up you are. Sometimes, it is not only to mark a person's status (based on birth/wealth), but also based on contributions to society. (For instance, scholars, etc).

Wow, Princess Juliana has space for her angel wings!   Angel
I hope Martha Louise has the opportunity to have that costume before it's ever thrown out.

The best know custome of Zeeland is the one with the big white cap. Among others because there is a brand of butter/margarine in the Netherlands named 'Zeeuws Meisje' (Zeeuws girl) which has a girl in the custome on their package. She also appears in some of their commercials.
