Victoria's maternity fashion: daywear, part two

Part two now of Victoria's maternity day wear (you can read part one here) and we start with her trip to Peru and Colombia where we got lots of bright colours and eye catching jackets.

October 19th, Lima, Peru
For the first appearances of the tour, including a meeting with Peruvian President, Ollanta Humala, Victoria chose a red shift dress with a raised waist and mid length sleeves. The jaunty jewellery was a nice addition and this was a striking look to start the tour.

October 20th, Lima, Peru
There was another eye catching dress on display on day two when the Crown Princess chose a geometric print design with full sleeves for a series of engagements including a tour of Lima's historic centre. It was another victory for Victoria.

October 21st, Cartagena, Colombia
The royal couple then moved on to Colombia and for a visit to Cartagena, Crown Princess Victoria chose a fabulous black dress with floral print scattered across the body. It was a look worth repeating over and over again.

October 22nd, Bogota, Colombia
For day four of her tour, Victoria returned to regal purple as she met Colombian President, Juan Manuel Santos Calderon, on her first day in the country's capital, Bogota. The purple shift worn for Nicolas' christening was teamed with purple coat and pretty, delicate gold jewellery to make this another standout look. Rather lovely.

October 23rd, Bogota, Colombia
For the final day of her South American tour, Crown Princess Victoria chose a black and white print dress with a bolero length white jacket fastened with a neat bow just above her bump. This is one of my absolute favourite Victoria maternity looks - super chic but with the added twist of black shoes and white bag to really mix it up. Fabulous.

November 2nd, Royal Palace, Stockholm
We got a hint of a rather nice red top from Victoria on her next day appearance. She was sitting down, admittedly, so we didn't get to see how the rest of the outfit panned out but the colour and cut of this one was an eye catcher. She was attending a briefing ahead of the Tunisian State Visit to Sweden - you can see her great gala gown from that trip on the evening maternity looks post.

November 3rd, Uppsala University
Is it me or has Victoria been wearing a lot of blue during this pregnancy? One of her first baby blue outfits came in November, when she was around four to five months pregnant (scan time everyone, just saying), and she attended the Dag Hammerskjold lecture at Uppsala University wearing a gorgeous blue dress with baby blue coat and blue scarf. That's a lot of blue.

November 4th, Royal Palace, Stockholm
There was more blue on display (I"ll stop now) when Victoria joined her parents, husband and brother to welcome the President of Tunisia as he started his State Visit to Sweden. We got a glimpse of a pale blue dress with a fabulous cornflower coat over the top and a sweet little matching fascinator. Very appropriate and very nice indeed.

November 5th, City Hall, Stockholm
Want to see the red dress from Lima again? OK, here you go. Victoria wore it again for a lunch for the President of Tunisia and it looked just as good second time round.

November 6th, Royal Palace, Stockholm
That rather lovely spotty frock first seen in Luxembourg was brought out of the royal wardrobe again as Victoria and Daniel said farewell to the Tunisian delegation at the end of the State Visit. This dress just gets better and better. A firm favourite all round.

November 10th, Stockholm
Victoria has made a point of royal recycling during this pregnancy and for a visit to a WWF lecture she rewore the red and grey geometric print dress from her South American visit. It looked just as lovely, one month on from its last appearance.

November 17th, Royal Palace, Stockholm
Another favourite frock made an appearance for a meeting with the Swedish Justice and Migration Minister that Victoria attended with her father at the Royal Palace. The black and white print dress worn in Bogota was teamed with a longer, black jacket this time round. It's a more serious take on the same look and while not as striking as the white jacket combo, it's still a winner.

November 18th, Varmland
The blue outfit from earlier in the month was out of the Royal Wardrobe again for a visit to Varmland with Prince Daniel. And just to carry on the theme, Victoria's husband chose a blue suit, shirt and tie for this visit. That's a lot of blue. Again.

November 27th, Royal Palace, Stockholm
The King and the Crown Princess gave an audience for honorary consuls as November came to an end and Victoria chose a simple but elegant shift dress for the occasion. It was chic and classic and another style hit for this queen of maternity fashion.

Another month, another glossy mag with a princess as its star. After Kate did Vogue and Mary did Vogue (again), this time round it's Eugenie doing Harper's Bazaar. The seventh in line to the throne features in the US September issue of the magazine, looking very glamourous while she's at it.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
