Luxarazzi 101: Royal Recycling and Clothes Sharing Vol. 8

Aaaaand we are back! Again. Time for Royal Recycling and Clothes Sharing Volume 8. Yes, eight - because the lovely Lux ladies are simply unstoppable when it comes to sharing the love. It actually makes you wonder if they have get-togethers every once in a while with a bottle of bubbly or two when they just talk about who will get what clothes for the next (not so) major event. But I disgress...
Turns out our newbie from last time around, Princess Marie-Gabrielle, is actually a pro at the clothes sharing thing. The coat the daughter of Prince Jean wore for the 90th birthday celebrations of Grand Duke Jean in 2011 was repeated by her cousin Princess Alexandra for the 95th birthday celebrations five years later. (Thank you to our fab readers Avery for the spot!) Considering that the coat looks pretty vintage, it wouldn't be a surprise if we one day find another lady of the Grand Ducal Family who has worn the coat before.
And just to prove the point, Princess Marie-Gabrielle was at it again: When I looked through the other pictures of Grand Duke Jean's 90th birthday celebration, I noticed that during the lunch the next day, Prince Jean's only daughter wore a fur wrap that seemed pretty familiar. Do you remember the one we covered in Royal Recycling and Clothes Sharing Vol. 7 worn by Grand Duchess Maria Teresa during a 2007 state visit and by Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie in 2013? Well, turns out Princess Marie-Gabrielle also sported in back in 2011.
Completing our clothes sharing trio is actually a hat. Turns out that Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie didn't only have a clothes sharing moment with her coat today at the closing procession of this year's Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg. Her hat has also been worn by another lady of the Grand Ducal Family. Princess Tessy sported the same (probably) Philip Treacy hat in 2012 also for the last day of the Octave celebrations.
