The global pandemic isn't stopping stars and royalty from attending Paris Fashion Week both in-person and remotely. Actress Kate Mara tuned into Dior’s Spring/Summer 2021 show from home, while Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and Princess Caroline’s daughter Princess Alexandra of Hanover stepped out Tuesday for the show held at the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris. Grace Kelly’s granddaughter looked stylish for the outing wearing an argyle pattern sweater, checked mini skirt, crossbody bag and boots all from the French fashion house. Alexandra completed her preppy COVID-era look with a $25 black face mask from RE/DONE. The Princess’ cotton jersey covering featured a statement and friendly reminder, which read: “If You’re Reading This You’re Too Close.”
Contrary to her designer look on Sept. 29, the Princess often dresses down when she’s out of the spotlight. Alexandra opened up about her off-duty fashion during her first interview earlier this year. “My life is that of any student my age and the university keeps me out of the media spotlight. Seen according to that lifestyle. A good pair of jeans, a sweatshirt, trainers or nice loafers,” the Princess told Telva. Though, Alexandra does borrow items from her glamorous mom. “I have to admit that I take a lot of things from my mother‘s closet. I don’t know if she’s as happy as I am with it,” she confessed. “My sisters-in-law, my sisters or my mother, they all have incredible style and enjoy getting ready, so I’m never short of inspiration.”
Alexandra is Princess Caroline’s youngest daughter. Prince Albert’s sister shares the 21-year-old royal with her estranged husband Prince Ernst August of Hanover. The Princess’ father has had a tumultuous few months. In September, Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung reported that the head of the royal House of Hanover had been arrested.
The royal’s arrest came after Ernst’s employee filed a complaint against him, claiming that she and her husband were “threatened and coerced dangerously” by the Prince. Ernst reportedly asked the couple to run away or he would send a “gang of thugs” on them. Prior to his arrest, the royal dad of three reportedly threatened officers with a baseball bat in July and was also temporarily taken to a psychiatric facility after allegedly hitting an officer.
Following his release from the psychiatric hospital, Ernst claimed that he was the one who was attacked. “I had a hypo, so I called 911. I said to hurry up because I am very bad,” he said in an interview with Kronen Zeitung. “A policeman hit me. I think they were drunk, at least they gave the impression. Then they chained me to an ambulance. They didn’t let me out for five hours. They wanted to take me to a room and spray me. I stood all night. I told them they don’t do that to me, I’m a normal person. I screamed until I was allowed out.” Ernst added, “Suddenly should I be the culprit? I am innocent, was never palpable.”
