A Royal Year: The Top Ten Royal Events of 2010

Good Evening, Friends!

Continuing on with The Top Ten Royal Events of 2010 list… numbers 8 and 7.  And, the winners, in my opinion, are:

8.) Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani & Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al-Missned of Qatar: The State Visit to Britain.

Yeah, okay, I get it some people may be scratching their heads wondering why I picked this event as one of the best moments in 2010 for royal watchers.  There are two reasons why:  First, Sheikha Mozah.  The woman is fierce.  Enough said.  Second, HM Queen Elizabeth II.  Love her.  Again, enough said.

The state visit had all the pomp and circumstance that royal watchers love, and the fact that Sheikha Mozah wore epic Chanel furry shoes with heels that were clear (like Stripper shoes) made this state visit so much fun to watch.

7.) HIH Emperor Akihito of Japan’s Balcony Birthday Wave-fest.

I don’t care.  I thought this was a great day for royal watchers.  Why?  We finally had a chance to see Crown Princess Masako of Japan.  We rarely see her and when we do… it’s a treat.  So there.  🙂
