Next year when they are married they will be seated separately at the table.
and yet we know that the King has a say in the seating, at least of the Royal family.

There are a hundred different reasons for why Sofia & CP sat next to each other, while Madeleine & Jonas did not. But the point stands that it looks as if this is another thing that the King gives preference to CP, whereas he did not to either of his daughters. It makes one raise one's eyebrow.

Likely CP had no say in it, but I wouldn't be surprised if the King had asked for CP & Sofia to be sat near each other.

According to the Nobel Week calendar, the dinner starts today at 19.30 swedish time. Maybe the time 18.30 at the royal calendar was wrong or meant for the photographers?

The time(s) in the Royal calendar is the time for media. Gala Dinners almost every time starts at 19:30 with the procession of the Royal Family and greetings and the dinner later starts 20:00

Or did Carl Philip simply put his foot down and insisted that Sofia sit next to him?
i think it was only that sofia is relatively inexperienced, perhaps more so than jonas was back then, to be sat on her own at this stage and next to a nobel prize winner. no pressure! i'm not trying to be irrespectful here, but she was in a reality show - reality show contestants are not known for their eloquency in general... so until they train her a bit, and make her more comfortable with the role, i think it was safe to seat her next to CP.

supposedly Sofia has something diamond in her hair (perhaps the rose brooch?), Silvia is in the Connaught, Victoria in the Baden, Madeleine in the Modern, and Christina in the 6-button.

So only Sofia & Silvia are doing something new, tiara-wise.

Still can't find any photos.

ETA: Belga is releasing some pictures, but none of the royals yet. http://portal.belgaimage.be/editoria...dv:false/nobel

and Svenskdam has a few: http://svenskdam.se/2014/12/vad-ar-v...ag-pa-slottet/

The queen, Victoria and Madeleine look nice, except Madeleine's hairdo. But Victoria and Madeleine could have changed tiaras for tonight. Great to see Victoria again with Lilian's favourite corsage. And Sofia, again the dress is a disappointment and too much cleavage.

Gallery, will be updated.

I love everyone's outfits tonight. So much better over last night. A little bit sad about the double use of tiaras, but oh well.

I don't like any of the ladies! Truly dull dresses...

I like Madde's most, then Sofia. Victoria's dress is least appealing imo.

Silvias dress could very well be the one Sofia wore at the state dinner a while ago, but Silvia looks way better in red lace than Sofia had back than.

Victorias dress is nice and it goes well with the tiara and necklace.

Madeleines dress is much, much better than the one from last night, which I didn't like at all.

Sofias dress could have been a bit more colourful. It looks way to plain as if she almost doesn't wear a dress. Nude is not a good dress colour for her.

I also want to add that it's disappointing to see Maddie with her hair down again. It seems to be a favorite look of hers. And her tiara is so far back on her head, how's it staying on?!

Of course yesterday they had more festive dresses.
The queen's dress today is better than yesterday.
Victoria looks very good also today, but yesterday she was breathtaking, that was such a statement dress and her super good posture made her look fantastic.
Madeleine, I liked her yesterday's dress better. And her hairdo was good yesterday, today it is a mess.
Sofia, both dresses have been such disappointments. She is going to wrong direction. She had nice dresses in various events and now these...

So the best three in these two days.
1. Victoria in her red dress
2. The queen in her red dress
3. Madeleine in her Nobel Ceremony dress, although I didn't like it. But her hairdo was beautiful.

I like that Victoria is wearing Princess Lilian's necklace. At least I thinks that PL's necklace...I could be wrong.

According to the court Sofia wears private jewellery. As you can see, there is a surprise at the back of Victoria's dress.

A tribute to Japan? Interesting. Is there a better picture of the bow on the back somewhere?

Now that I've seen the back of Vickan's dress, I'm going to have to amend my statement. Everyone looks great, except for Vickan. That back is ridiculous in the worst way. Oh my word.

I can't say that I like Victoria's dress from the second night at all.
