I noticed that, but William is really tall, and it makes other people seem small next to him. Though I must say this difference is more clearly with King Felipe who is taller than William (never got the chance to see them side by side on the state visit to England).

I thought they were dressed appropriate for the weather, though I think a bit more cloth would've been better. But that's me who comes from a south mediterranean country where less than 20ºC starts to feel a bit chilly. Can't wait to see pictures of tonight.

I have to hand it to Kate (and all other Royal ladies, when pregnant), 5-6 months pregnant and this tour schedule has got to be exhausting. I know second trimester is when you have the most energy, but being on the go and always "on show" at the pace of a Royal tour has got to be so incredibly daunting. By the end of the night, I'm not sure I'd be able to remove my own clothing, I'd just want to sleep as long as possible!

I think they don't want to miss this tour too, it's a great opportunity for them to meet their future colleague.

William must be freezing. Victoria looks great...until you see her without her coat.

In one of the videos on Twitter, (I'll look back and see if I can't find it.), William is speaking with someone in the crowds and discussing his lips going numb from the cold!

He said: "We'd better get them inside, Williams scalp is turning blue".
- Sorry couldn't resist.

Balding men should always wear caps and hats iat this time of year. And I'm actually being serious. You lose a tremendous amount of body heat through your head. - And after a few days he won't feel silly anymore.
And even though a wind chill factor of what was it -1 or -6 C, means people begin to wear gloves when we stay outside for a longer period here in Scandinavia, we've after all had a couple of months to get used to the cool weather. W&K haven't.

Is the cold dry or wet in Stockholm right now? If it's wet you should add a few more degrees to the windchill factor.

Here is a good photo of Victoria at the Royal Palace.

William and Kate met prime minister Stefan Löfven and his wife Ulla before the dinner.

I know I might be in the minority, but I actually like the Erdem dress on Catherine. The color is really nice on her (not on everyone though) and the cut is very good, maybe a little bit Victorian/hippy, but I'm digging it.

It looks like the visit is going very well so far. Stockholm is a lovely city, although just a tad chilly in the winter. William and Kate seem to have a nice rapport with Victoria and Daniel and I’m sure have been made to feel very welcome.

It simply wouldn't be a proper visit without the evocaltuisticly written articles from Daily Mail, so here is for your viewing pleasure as well as stimulating your intellects:
Pregnant Kate and William catch up with Swedish royals | Daily Mail Online
Colourful life of the Swedish royal family revealed | Daily Mail Online

Alas, I haven't myself read all the articles, I'm still speechless from reading the first.

Alicia Vikander sits between William and prime minister Löfven. Kate was taken to the table by ambassador David Cairns. At the photos we can see also Stellan Skarsgård.

The prime minister's presence at the dinner is the "political" part of the visit, I guess.

We could see that William and Kate had a private meeting with the prime minister and his wife. William and Kate met also the minister for Education and Research, Helene Hellmark Knutsson, at the Nobel Museum.
