Maud and Haakon (called Charles by Maud) ♥

This picture was kept by Princess Victoria in her albums. Later Maud wrote to her sister : “We are so happy and my C. is a perfect angel to me.”

While going through her large collection of clothing saved over many decades a box was found with the polka-dot blouse she wore on the day she became engaged to Charles. It was carefully packed away in tissue paper and a hand-written note by Maud was enclosed saying : “Save this always”.
