The King and the Queen held an official gala dinner at Swedish Royal Palace

King Carl Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Silvia of Sweden held an official gala dinner at Stockholm Royal Palace on February 3. The gala dinner was attended by Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip and his wife Princess Sofia and representatives of the Parliament, the Government, government agencies, and of organizations of science, sports, business, culture and travel. (Princess Madeleine and her husband Chris could not attend the gala dinner as required by a principle.)

  2. Pauvre Sofia qui a un seul diadème .Elles ne sont pas sympas dans la famille , elles pourraient lui en prêter

    1. Why anyone should feel sorry for "pauvre Sofia" is ridiculous. She probably doesn't care about having one tiara as you do, especially considering the family spent thousands on a brand new tiara just for her and she probably got to choose it herself! . Besides what do you expect, a brand new princess having multiple diadems?

    2. I am very sure she, as they all, have access to Bernadotte Foundation tiaras. She just seems to like her own tiara.

    3. I agree...i feel so sorry for her, she is not allowed to use some of the familys tiara.

      Delete
    4. @Blondiini - the king has control on who wears a tiara from the Bernadotte collection for an event; and when Victoria comes to the throne, she will have a say. Sofia only having access to the smaller pieces and no tiaras makes one wonder about her standing in the royal family.

  3. A gold sequin dress??? Sofia fails big time. CP Victoria looks fantastic. What brand is that? The Queen looks nice as well. CP looks freshly showered.

      I have no clue....it is said that Sofias dress has been borrowed from a friend of hers.

    3. According to Swedish newspapers the dress has been borrowed from one of her best friends who wore it at CP and S wedding last summer.

    4. It's OK to borrow clothes, but at least do something about the length on the dress. It's not that difficult to make the hem shorter for the occasion and take it down after. Looks like she's a little girl who borrowed her mother's dress for a dress up..wonder if her shoes are 5 number to big too ;)

    5. Anonymous 10:31: She borrowed it from a friend. But why you call her "Prince Carl Philips wife"? Firstly; her name is Sofia and then; she is actually a princess. Does not matter what others think about it that she got the title. You do not like it, but accept it.

      Delete
    6. @Anonymous Feb. 4 @ 4:22 pm - actually, Victoria is a princess for all her life. Sofia is a princess as long as she's Carl Philip's wife.

      Delete
    7. That is not true. Some day Victoria will be queen. But do u think that Sofia should not have the right to be called princess now? But she IS princess NOW. And you can not decide on the titles so the future has no relevance here.

    9. But please. She's new princess! What are you going to do....? Just accept. You must not read, you must not get involved with her. I feel sorry to read that someone wants another bad! It is not right.

    10. @Anonymous Feb. 6, 8:58 pm - if there is a divorce the king could decide to strip Sofia of the princess title, or Victoria could, if the divorce happens when she's on the throne. Since the king was the one that gave Sofia the princess title, he - or Victoria - are the ones that can take it away as the authority of the Crown.

  7. Princess Sofia looks is lovely although the dress is a little shiny. Victoria the dress is so granny like.
    Queen Silvia always over the top, the color of the shawl looks awful with the dress.

  10. Victoria's look is just wrong in so many ways starting with the color it washes her out, the material is not pretty the sleeves are baggy and so long etc. The Queen, is that orange over her red dress ?it clashes whatever it is.

  11. They all look very beautiful (and handsome too). Princess Sofia has loaned her dress from a frend of her.

  12. Is it only me or is the way Sofia walks arm in arm with CP a bid coarse? Her hand is placed as if she wants to sway to and fro with CP. Victoria and the other female royals place their hands with much more grace and style.

    1. I agree with you, one of the best outcomes of Princess Sofia so far. Crown Princess Victoria seems to have laborious pregnancy and her dress is looking like a nightie, although it looks very comfortable.

  17. I love Prince Daniel - I see him being a supportive Prince Consort to the future Queen Victoria of Sweden, the same way Prince Philip of UK has been supportive Prince Consort to Queen Elizabeth II for decades. I respect Prince Philip for that reason because it is not easy for some men when the spouse is the Queen Regnant.

  21. I really hate the way that Princess Sofia's tiara looks in her head, it is like putting there without any effort. She looks marvelous but the tiara is wrong

  22. It's funny to read all the comments. Either you love Victoria and she cannot do anything wrong and Sofia is coarse and not regal enough. OR. You love Sofia and think Victoria always looks older and boring. And the queen, I totally agree that the color of her dress and shawl clash! I myself prefer Sofia, but I think Victoria is lovely too.

  23. They are all look good and happy , nothing else could be said !

  24. VICTORIA - I have to say that I did not like the dress the Crown Princess wore at all! It looks too old-fashioned and something maiden aunt would likely wear to her bed. The color looks too bland and the sleeves of unfortunately length. I really like the Baden Fringe Tiara. But that is all I like about this look! **sorry all Victoria fans**.
    SOFIA - I like the design of her dress, its such a lovely classic design. The fabric looks too shiny though and the dress was clearly too long for Sofia. That tiara of hers...sorry, but it looks ugly, cheap and something that is very hard to place on your head (or match with certain colors)! Why she can't borrow something else for tiara events??
    SILVIA - lady in red. I like her dress and The Connaught Tiara.
    THE KING looks very tanned.

  27. I don't know why but CPss Victoria's dress reminds me of a nightgown and those sleeves make her look huge and homely. But I like her tiara.
    Sofia's dress looks beautiful but her tiara...I think that Sofia's small tiara was meant to be worn with a different kind of hairstyle (put hair up, so the tiara would then nestle into the hair). With the way she's wearing her hair, the tiara looks more like a prom tiara, something that was just perched on top of the head. Its not regal, imho.

    2. I also think that Sofia should try different hairstyle with her tiara. Something like this:
      http://blogg.tv2.no/kongebloggen/files/2013/06/ste_wedding_of_c_2039872.jpg
      This way the tiara would nestle into her hair and look more natural. Right now it looks like something poked on top of her head and its kinda lacks of regality!

  28. I love Sofias dress, simply beautiful, the colour, the style, the shiny material, her body ist beautifully sculptured in her pregnancy. The short sleeves make it look modern and youthful. Absolutely age approbriate.
    (and yes it should have been shortened in the front part)
    Whereas Victorias dress makes her look older than she is. She has done better.
    Why not try another hairstyle? I think a shoulderlong bob like Letizias so she can still wear an updo, would suit her, and would look more modern.

    I also like the two shades of red, that the queen wears. The yellowish red of the shawl lifts the blueish red of the robe. Perfect!

    1. That's the advantage, when royals marry royals. I always think the married-into-commoners are disguised. Sorry to say that, but I think you should have a matching background to be taken seriously. I have huge probs to take good old Sofia seriously.

    2. So you mean they should go back to the 1800 and have arranged marriages that would never hold in today's society instead of marring for love? Must be my mistake I thought this is what we believe is wrong in some countrys and religions. So that means except in royal circles ??

      You have "huge probs" with taking Daniel seriously he doesn't have a matching background also he is disguised by wearing glasses and trying to be Clarke Kent - or does the matching backgrounds only apply to Sofia.

      Ich finde auch, dass man, sobald man gg den Mainstream schwimmt, direkt unfair angegangen wird und beschimpft wird. Ich finde das ist eine sehr schlechte Entwicklung....(die es aber auf sämtlichen Plattformen gibt!)

    5. Zu schreiben, dass sie "daneben" aussieht ist eine äußerst beleidigende Meinungsäußerung. Das hat nichts mit diskutieren und freier Meinungsäußerung zu tun. Schreiben Sie doch Ihre, wenn auch negative Meinung, einfach etwas netter. Jeder darf etwas gut, nicht so gut oder auch gar nicht gut finden. Ich möchte Sie auch nicht wegen Ihrer Meinung angreifen, aber der Ton ist bei vielen hier oft sehr "unfreundlich".
