Default S2S13R challenge....'Orange'

I have come about this week's challenge in a very roundabout way. Knowing that this was the week that Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011, I was going to make this a royal challenge. Then I realized that the Dutch also celebrate Queen's Day (Koninginnedag) this week. This will be celebrated not only in the Netherlands, but also in Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten. Dutch royalty is descendant from the house of Orange-Nassau and those celebrating this feast day often wear orange clothing and dye their hair orange. So......for the challenge this week, it will be to use orange in your card and if you can add something depicting royalty, that would be a bonus.
P.S. for those of you who are interested in European current events, this will be the last time Queen's Day is celebrated in Holland for a long time, as Queen Beatrix is abdicating her throne tomorrow to allow her son, Prince Willem to become king, so from now on, it will become king's day.
