I agree. They all looked fabolous at the Gala. But what happened to Matte-Merit? Where is she? Why didn't she attend at the Swedish State visit?

Mette-Marit did not attend because of low blood pressure. With her being pregnant her doctors decided it was best she stay home.

I really liked Victoria's red top and black skirt from the day ceremony. But her brim looked like someone sat on it, it's so uneven. Mind you, her hair was too pulled-back and flat when she removed the hat!

Loved everyone's gala outfits. Except for Sonja's bright yellow dress, way too yellow.

I went down to Skeppsbron in Stockholm (where the Norwegians ship lies) yesterday after work and my timing was perfect, the royals just came back from the day's activities. I thought that, "what goes in must come out" so I stayed there for about 90 minutes (my husband was with me). And after a while they came out in their gala outfits. They seemed very nice and waved to us (it was a very small crowd). Especially Haakon stopped and waved for a long time. I noticed that Sonja seemed to have a bit of troubles with the bridge up to the boat. Does she have some injury?

However, it was nice weather and a lovely evening!

Swedish and Norwegian are close enough so that we understand each other while speaking our mother tongue so I very much doubt they speak English together.

Thanks for the pictures!

Queen Sonja wore both the thing in dots and the yellow dress before. I believe the yellow dress was worn in Spain, at the pre-wedding ball for Infanta Cristina (and before that she wore it as werll, I remember a picture of her waving on a balcony in this dress).
Marie-Therese of Luxembourg has the same dress (with the dots) as queen Sonja, only in a brownish shade, this dress also dates from the mid/late 90-ties.

Victoria looked very lovely I might add, both during the gala during the day. Red suits her well.

I think that they speak their own languages - the Norwegians speak Norwegian and the Swedes speak Swedish during this visit. Swedes, Norwegians and Danes can usually understand each other quite well, with the exception of some difficult dialects of course.

When Queen Margrethe visits Sweden and the Swedish Royal Family, she can speak Swedish with them if she wishes too, she speaks an excellent Swedish.

more from UK PRess, so we have 5 royal ladies and they are all wearing dresses that has been around before, It would not hurt to get new one every now and then, but they still do look great

Also three from the design exhibition, Victoria obiously felt the need to compensate the loss of hat with some glasses

I think that if you are going to wear a dress several times, it should maybe be in a bit more discreete colour than Sonja's... I don't see why she couldn't have swapped either the skirt or the top on it, with another colour... she has done so with several other dresses. It makes for a lovely new experience then. Perhaps a soft shade of green to match the emeralds?

I think they all looked fantastic!
But... :) I like Madeleines hair better when its down, like she had at Mary and Frederiks wedding.
Victorias dress is great on her. And she seems to be in even better shape now than she was before.

Thanks for the pics everyone!
