I like the Queen´s hat - it looks different from what she usually wears.

But - yet another appearance at the state banquet of HM´s almost 20 years old (!) evening dress she 1st wore for her 60th birthday....

King Harald and queen Sonja arrived to Oulu. Minister of Economic Affairs Olli Rehn and his spouse, as well as senior members of the city administration, are the hosts to the royal couple in Oulu.

Queen Sonja had a brooch when arriving to Oulu
It's the "Dream"-brooch from finnish Kalevala jewelry designed by Kirsti Doukas, probably a present from the presidential couple.
On 1 June 1906, the Finnish Estates accepted a new Parliament Act and Election Act. On that day, Finland, which was still a Grand Duchy of Russia, established the world's most modern Parliament, which ensured universal and equal suffrage.
The Dream jewelry collection celebrates the centennial of equality pioneers. The festive theme has inspired Kirsti Doukas to combine delicate sprightly elements into a strong form. Doukas' jewelry is a harmonious arrangement of silver and three beautiful precious stones: topaz, green quartz and smoky quartz. With subtle powerfulness, Dream tells a story of individual courage that, when amassed, can change the world.
