It was something between +5 and +10 degrees (C), so it wasn't that cold.
Yesterday was a sunny springday in Stockholm.

Quite the same climate than in Austria.

The queen worn the blouse in China July 2006 and the skirt to many times.

The gown of Princess Madeleine is new, I think!

I don't think I have ever seen Swedish Royal ladies wearing tiara for a black-tie event. On those occasions the tiaras stay in the vault (in Sweden at least). Women don't even have to wear full skirts, so it is a less grand dressing code than white-tie. It was strange that the Grand Duchess still wore a tiara...

I think that there was a simular 'mistake' in Denmark, when the GDss was wearting a tiara at the second gala while the Danish royals were not. It is a pity that she removed hers though, it looks lovely, though the two rivieres around the neck didn't hurt either.

IMO Victoria was recycling the prettiest gala dress she has and it is nice to see her hair with a wave this time. IMO the grand duchess looked esp. lovely too, though I do not agree that the she is chubby or anything, just a figure like most women of her age.

Thanks Franz! See, now I'm wondering why Princess Madeleine wore the fur. Oh well, perhaps she was cold while Princess Victoria wasn't.

Thanks ursulajohanna for your info about the gowns. Princess Madeleine's gown looks so much like the one she wore at a Nobel gala - at least in terms of the color and the ruching of the gown. But after seeing it without the fur, I have to agree that it's new.

Victoria's hair was gorgeous, though that evening dress isn't the best, but each to their own.

As for Maria Theresa, she is somewhat a curvaceous woman and does carry a few extra pounds. But as you stated, a woman her age is normally bound to fill out and it does her no injustice.

Didn't Princess Madeleine wear that gown to a wedding, I believe she was a bridesmaide.

Thanks for the info. You are absolute right. Interesting to know that there are other ladies (other bridesmaids) who have this same dress as well.

I am so impressed by way which Princess Victoria is groomed and dressed. It would be so easy for someone in her position (Heir to the throne) to dress older than her years and to look frumpy and outdated.
She is polished and professional looking, yet, like last night, she can wear a pretty gown and leave her hair down and look great.
Queen Silvia looks better today - she just seems low key and not as jovial as she usually is -
And Marie Terese looks very good --- last night's dress was a winner - she should have it copied in every color as the style was perfect for her. Also she wore a dazzling necklace.

Reception and concert at the Nordic Museum: everybody looked great. My personal favourite is Princess Madeleine, who was absolutely gorgeous in the blue dress. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa's dress was a better choice than the white one. She definitely looked comfortable.
A luncheon at Linkoping Castle: The presumably Armani suit (I might be mistaken, but the suit style, especially the skirt, tells me recent Armani collections) fitted Grand Duchess reasonably well. However, I am not sure whether the skirt enhances her look. Crown Princess Victoria looked very charming: professional and elegant.

I have to say Victoria outdid her sister this time. She looks so elegant on all the pictures. I feel that Madeleine is wearing the same every now.
