We've been absolutely spoiled with new royal hatters lately, haven't we? Here's yet another new -- and rarely seen -- princess for the blog: the woman on the left is Marie Aglaë, the wife of Hans-Adam, the reigning Prince of Liechtenstein. Hans-Adam and Marie Aglaë's son, Hereditary Prince Alois, does the business of running the principality, but Hans-Adam (the man shaking Queen Paola's hand here) is still the nation's head of state.
Lovely black lace veil on Marie Aglaë -- like Letizia, she must wear black at the Vatican. Here's a question I've always had about the privilège du blanc -- as Spain, Belgium, and Luxembourg are not the only Catholic countries with a reigning monarch or grand duke, why aren't the princesses or princesses consort of Catholic principalities like Liechtenstein and Monaco also afforded the ability to wear white? Anyone know the answer to this one?
