Prince Carl Philip indeed started a course in agriculture at a university in the countryside this last Monday - see his 'Current Events' topic for info.
At the Palace gala, I find Queen Silvia looking most elegant - the heavy chain of her Finnish order goes very well with her Yuki gown cut along simple, flowing lines. Again the kind of medieval feeling Yuki gowns always have - Guinevere-like with the draping of the fabric and the narrow train in the back.
I really don't like the way the bustier top of Princess Madeleine's all-too-shiny dress is cut, and Victoria's black & white outfit is getting a bit boring by now. I agree the problem is that it’s a two-piece – the way the top’s bottom finishes around the waist is not very nice to look at.
But the whole atmosphere at the Palace is very impressive, with the arrival surrounded by guards in armor, the group photo in the ballroom, and the dinner taking place in the gallery.
