Today's the big day. The ceremony in the chamber, with the royal family, will begin in 20 minutes.

SVT is transmitting: svt.se - 24 Direkt (press Se direktsändning (vardagar ca 9.30-16.00)) in the sidebar.

They all look good, but why do they all need to be in black?

Victoria's outfit is stunning, really flattering. I'm not as keen on what Madeleine is wearing.

Victoria looks great, Queen Silvia just fine, and Madeleine a bit matronly.

Silvia looked fine today, a bit too much black for my taste.
Victoria was absolutely beautiful - from shoes to headpiece, she was just stunning.
Madeline is a very pretty girl and the suit is quite nice but I just don't think black is really her colour. nor are strickt and buisness-like outfits. I believe she could still look nice if her stockings weren't black but skin-colour, like Victoria's.
Carl Philip and the King were elegant and handsome, as usual.

In this thread jinigirl explained that it is tradition that the women of the Royal Family are dressed in black and/or white for that occasion, because those were the colors of the court dress, which was worn in former times for the opening of the parliament.

Thank you indeed! I kept wondering why Madeline wore black because it's hardly one of her preffered colours.

Victoria looked very good today! I was amazed when i turned on the tv a bit before the broadcast from the opening of parliment should start to find that SVT broadcasted the opening of parliment from 1974 (the last time that it was held in the Royal Palace with the king on the throne and pomp) before todays live broadcast - I just wish i would have turned it on earlier...
