  1. I look at Victoria in the 3rd picture and she looks like a different person. This taylored suit transforms her. This is also the perfect time for her hair to be pulled up. She looks very refined. Silvia's cape is very chic. It is nice to see a change from the usual wrap. From what I can see of Sofia, I like her dress. This is a conservative look for her, but it still has style. I also like that her hair has been tamed for this occasion, with no wisps or tendrils.

  2. Just curious: do you have a photo of the back of Sofia's hat? I really like this look on her.

    1. I too was wondering what the back of Sophia's hat looks like. I thought all the ladies were dressed really well and fit the occasion.... JT

    2. Agree! I do too. Love the color.

  3. I love Victoria's repeat "Parliament" jacket. Sofia looks very nice and proper. But why oh why can men never keep their ties straight (a HUGE bugaboo of mine). /Julie/

  4. Good looking ladies all around.
    I first thought that Silvia´s look was very dark, but with the white cape and hat, it´s a very chic outfit.
    I love Victoria´s skirt suit that she´s worn several times for this occasion. I agree with chardonn8r above that a tailored outfit makes her look a million times better. She is in great shape, and this is a sharp look while still being perfectly elegant. I´m not crazy about her head thing, but I like that it is white.
    Sofia: I like that she snuck in some colour but I find the thing on her head very odd. Her dress is nice and fits her perfectly, great classic shoes as well, but overall a very dark look. I find outfits almost entirely in black very depressing, especially on brunettes. The aubergine accessories help a bit but it´s still very dark overall.

    1. Agree the headpiece looks so tratitional clothing.

  7. It looks always like a funeral for Sweden, every year. All the ladies are chic, but what are Victoria and Sofia wearing on their heads?? Silly. Victoria should stay more often with those little "Chanel" outfits. It suits her, makes her more feminin.

    1. Jusqu’aux années 50/60 les dames royales portaient des robes de cour ,longues et noires ,toutes identiques. On a gardé le noir et raccourci les robes .

  8. Okay, I have to ask; if the women traditionally are to wear black and white is Sophia accesorising with deep burgundy?

  9. Elles sont toutes superbes ! Sofia ressemble à une jolie poupée.

  10. @Anon8:38pm - I don't know why Sofia's deep burgundy was allowed; however, her headpiece is dark enough and looks quite nice. And the men are wearing varying shades of blue ties.

    @"rainha leonor" - Why "funeral"? I don't see "funeral"; I just see dark dressy colors for a very dignified occasion with church leaders also present. And I quite like their head gear, it's definitely not the place for, let's say, fascinators.

  11. All the Royal Ladies look great. But Pss Sofia today just oozes elegance. Love the total outfit. Love the cape of Queen Silvia.CPss Victoria I believe wears the same outfit like last year, maybe I am wrong. But very nice anyway.

  13. Cp Victoria repeats her clothing as usual. The hairthing is different and creates a more matronly look. In pic six Sofia looks really elegant and so her handsome husband andCP Victoria and Daniel are probably joking

  14. All three ladies look very nice, but Sofia looks exceptionally chic and sophisticated -- absolutely stellar.

  15. Like Rainha Leonor, I saw the first photo and thought it was a funeral. Then I read the heading properly! I love the fact that the outfits follow this (mainly) black and white tradition for this event. Queen Silvia looks good and I agree with all those who have commented on how good Victoria looks in this kind of streamlined outfit. However, Sofia is the winner for me--love the dress, the shoes and adore the head piece (hat/fascinator, bow--whatever it is). She looks fantastic. great looks for everybody.

    1. The opening of Parliament is not about displaying fancy new clothes, but the laeies like to dress up for the evening concert.

      Queen Silvia modernized the dress code years ago but kept the same black/white; now it looks as if Sofia might think she's entitled to do the same.

    2. Jusqu’en 1973 les reines et les princesses portaient la robe de cour noire et longue avec un diadème . Le protocole s’est allégé .

  16. Sofia is beautiful and she looks fantastic.

    1. I agree. Sofia is mainly in black. I don’t think she is breaking any rules. And I am sure the queen would make her change if she was. She wore black and grey last year. Obviously nobody said anything. She looks wonderful.

  17. Can someone please explain what is that thing on Sophia’ Head? Cause it’s certainly an utterly bizarre looking piece of fabric...

  19. I would like Sofia to add small burgundy brooch and then would be just perfect. Victoria looks great as well.

  20. ce ne sont pas des chapeaux que portent Victoria et Sofia mais des turbans !

  21. All of them looks so nice, so beautiful and perfect for the occasion.

  22. Sophias dress is amazing and emphazises her narrow waist. Wish we could see her "hat" which looks very stylish.

    Victoria is very elegant in this costume too but for me it makes her look older.

    Queen Silvia elegant as always.

  23. Mir gefällt der Haarschmuck von Sofia sehr. Hat etwas Mittelalterliches. Ansonsten habe alle dem Dresscode an diesem speziellen Tag Rechnung getragen.

  24. All look wonderful. I don't believe there is a rule they have to wear only black and white so I love P. Sofia wore the burgundy. I would've liked a necklace or a pin on Sofia. This family is too gorgeous! - Capt. Marvel
