I´m very dissapointed by the Queen - i hate those yuki dresses! And i don´t think that pink and rubies work good together.
I agree about Victoria - she was the winner on both nights as far as I am concerned - beautiful, elegant, and stunning. (On the GREMB, a HQ photo of Victoria shows a better view of her brooch from tonight. I don't think it is new but I believe it is the first time worn by Vic. It is a cluster brooch with a center pearl surrounded by diamonds. I think it is the one that has been seen in pictures of Queen Viktoria, Princess of Baden. And I believe Queen Silvia has used it fairly often.)

I think that tonight's dress on Madeleine is a vast improvement over it's appearance last year with the shrug jacket. And I liked the diamond necklace bandeau in her hair as all. BTW, she and Jonas make a gorgeous couple in formal wear as well.

(BTW on the GREMB there is a closeup of Madde's necklace. The poster speculated that the pendant of her necklace is the brooch often wore by Silvia and which Madde wore on the choker at the Innocence Ball in 2003 <I think I saw someone call it the Victory Laurel Brooch is some posting somewhere>. I think I would agree with them because the overall shape of the brooch and the large pearl center are very close to the brooch.)

Last night's dress bothered me for some reason. I realized why today seeing it again. Sorry to all the people who loved it but with the black lace on the green satin (I DID love the color) all she was missing was some feathers in her hair and she would have been a saloon girl-hooker from the Old West.

I, too, am disappointed in the choices Queen Silvia made this year. I love the dress from the Danish wedding but this event is more formal than an afternoon wedding and requires richer fabric, deeper color, etc. I don't think there was a problem with the jewels, just the overall look was washed out in addition to the unfortunate hair mishap.

BUT TONIGHT!!! UUUGGGGHHH!!! If Yuki is such a great designer, why isn't anyone ELSE wearing this crap? For a woman of HM's age, she has a fantastic figure and is usually guite beautiful and elegant. Toning it down so that your newly-engaged daughters stand out is one thing. Wearing a shower robe is another. I think this is even worse than that ridiculous red bat-woman disaster from 2007. (It pains me to say this because I love me some Silvia )

On a good note, however, much as I miss Princess Lilian from this event, I'm glad to see Silvia continuing the theme of new jewelry this year by wearing the diamond stomacher-necklace that Lilian has worn so elegantly for many years. All of the searching I have done goes back to Queen Josefina as being the first one pictured wearing it. Does anyone have more info on this piece-provenance, etc.?

And no one is talking about her that much, but I have to mention Princess Christina. She really seems to have aged a lot in the last few years. I don't mind that her tiara gets lost in her poufy hair and she does appropriately wear a coverup jacket or shawl, but she seems to favor tank-style sheath dresses that make her body shape unattractive. I don't know if she needs a bigger size, different style, better undergarments, but it just doesn't work. Again I hate to say unflattering things about her because she seems like she would be a hoot at a party.

Finally, I hope Silvia recognizes that she is a vibrant, stylish woman and doesn't need to diminish herself for her daughters to shine and comes back next glammed-out, blinged-out and shows herself for the amazing queen that she is!

I too loved Crown Princess Victoria's dress, especially the color. The flower was a bit unnecessary in my opinion (I prefer simple styles), and I wasn't too fond of it, but otherwise the dress was beautiful. Princess Madeleine's dress was beautiful as well, the lace parts were a nice bonus. I didn't like her hair style though, it looked a bit too casual for the occasion. Carl Philip looked handsome as always.

The informationschef of the court, Nina Eldh, said that Daniel Westling didn´t participate to the dinner of the same reason than the day before, it is a security measure because of his health.

The Queen looked much better on the second night. What a gorgeous colour and the syle of the evening dress suits HM so very well.

After it was confirmed in the "Swedish-royal-family-forum" in the end of October that Daniel was vaccinated against swine flue than I can´t really understand why he didn´t attend the nobel prize festivities with the explanation that he will avoid to become sick with swine flue. How long does it last until the vaccine acts on?

The H1N1 vaccine is no guarantee against getting sick. It may protect you but it may not. There are more than one strain or mutation and with guests from so many countries it makes perfect sense that Daniel is staying away. Until his immune system is stronger even a cold could be much harder on him than most of us.

I agree, Grevinnan. We all are excited about CP Victoria publicly appearing at functions, especially high-profile events, with her fiance. But I'm sure most of us would take every precaution and follow doctor's advice in this case. The Nobel Prize is an exciting event but this man's life is more important. I think it shows good judgement on his part as well as the CP and the royal family. Besides, it's not just that he might get sick. With his current medical condition, getting sick for Daniel is MUCH more risky than another man his age who had not recently undergone a serious medical procedure. If he got sick, his immune system is seriously deficient and he could die from an illness. Other events he has attended didn't have so many people from around the world, so this event was also a higher risk.

No matter what people feel about Daniel being a good/bad/appropriate choice as future Prince Consort, I don't think anyone would wish to see Victoria grieving over his death.

I think the Queen's dress is a combination of colours from the 2 Princesses' dress. Just like the royal wedding in Denmark where Victoria wore green and Madeleine's light purple. A nice little touch!!

I agree. Better safe than sorry. No point in taking unnecessary risks.
Thanks Paty for the video link.

I must confess that many times I prefer the royals of the past.
But the Queen of Sweden and the Princesses of Sweden impressed me by the way they wear gowns tiaras and jewelry, their happy smile, the way they accept the swedish protocole and way of life. The young royals received an exellent education.Well done TTMM.

And there was a case here in Sweden: a man with a new heart got the flu and his body started to puch the heart away... so to be careful is wise...

I loved the outfits from the kings dinner, Silvia looks awful though.
Was Daniel ever said to be attending the kings dinner?
Shame the bandeau can hardly to seen in Madelines hair.
I like both versions of Madelines dress.

The Nobel foundation website now has the Stockholm ceremony online. Unlike previous years, though, you can't save the video to your desktop.

Reasons for not attending the Nobel Ceremony

Hello to everyone on the forums. I know someone might be able to help with this question.

I know that Queen Silvia did not attend in 1980 because she was ill and Princess Lilian has not attended since 2006 due to her frailness and advanced age. Looking back, Victoria did not attend in 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2002. Does anyone know what the reasons were for the absences?

Also for Madeleine in 2001 and 2004, if possible.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Rascal, I know the princess(es) were abroad in some of the years you question. Additionally, Victoria was seeking medical attention for her reported eating disorders, which now, thank God, is in check.
