Check out the Original tweet from Rick Evers and find the mixup in the verbs!
BREAKING: Máxima draagt vanavond de blauwgrijze diamant van ca 40 karaat die bekend staat als de ‘Stuart’ en kwam in 1690, vlak na de kroning van koning-stadhouder Willem III en Koningin Mary II, in bezit gekomen. Mary sleep het met 22 facetten volgens model van Amsterdamse roos.
AAANYWAY, Gurl really did bring it last night. Methinks the necklace would have been too too much, besides the style of it doesn't really complement the tiara/stomacher/Earring combo.
MkM site has a well-researched story about the House Diamonds (which include the Stuart) and how Emma Queen Mary-d them from an imposingbut meh necklace and stomacher into the set we know today. (stomacher, earrings, necklace, tiara)
Well yesterday night was pretty overwhelming in my case:
- After haven't done sports for a relative long time, I participated in 2 hours of a teamsport (ok, I have some light muscle ache now), topped of with a cosy drink and talk in a pub close by
- Reading and looking up all the glamour presented at the first day and night of the Dutch state visit to the UK. And being overwhelmed by Max in the Stuart glory.
- Not being able to sleep until about 03:30, Western Europe time. Almost missed my alarm clock this morning, which ringed at 05:45. I eventually woke up around 06:30. Still in time, but later then I anticipated.
