Is "stor kjole" a way of describing a ball gown? Else it sounds like the queen is wearing ill-fitting (or ugly) clothes.

Stor kjole is not some clever rewriting of ball gown or anything, but I'd say it wasn't a very nice dress if the only thing they managed to say about it was "big and green" (maybe she's wearing her dress uniform?!)

I think 'ballkjole' might be closer to 'ball gown'.

Could this mean she's wearing plus sized clothing?
