Sunday Tidbits for December 14: Queen Fabiola's Farewell, and More

As we cap a busy week, a few items we haven't covered here and a few leftovers from last week. Tidbits, here we go:

-Queen Fabiola was laid to rest on Friday. It was an emotional ceremony, with Queen Mathilde among those in tears. A Spanish performance paid tribute to Fabiola's roots and some of the young members of the family took part in readings. It was a fitting memorial for a much-loved queen.

-Allow these new photos of Prince George to put a holiday smile on your face. The little socks are killing me. [BBC]

-Here's Princess Benedikte looking resplendent in a red wrap with fur trim. [Billed Bladet]

-The Duchess of Cornwall wore this magnificent sapphire on her necklace again this week (she debuted it last year). Drool. [Zimbio]

-A couple items sold at Christie's in 2006 from the estate of Princess Margaret have been sold again. [Express]

-A Cartier sapphire and diamond ring that belonged to the Duchess of Windsor was also sold again this week. [Christie's]

-From a couple weeks ago, an interesting article on Cartier's Royal Tiara. The newly crafted piece includes a perfect natural pearl that belonged to Queen Mary (consort of George V and our magpie queen). Can't say I'm a fan of the tiara form. [Wall Street Journal]

Stay tuned for Monday, we're going Dutch.
