Not from the back yet, but a side view. The dress is much more interesting than you might have thought from the first photo. It is great to see that Victoria didn't have safe choices in her dresses this year, but had totally different style dresses than normally.

Sofia's dress looks much better today. Does anybody recognise the brooch in her hair?
The tiara choices of Victoria, Madeleine and Christina could have been a bit more original as they wore the same ones yesterday.

Best dressed: the two ladies in Japanese traditional costume. The royal dresses were ok but nothing special IMHO.

I'm not a Sofia fan, but I have to disagree with other posters -- I don't think that her gown shows too much cleavage. It's fine .... not fabulous, but fine.


Like last evening, I think Maddie takes the prize. She looks fabulous and is glowing!

I think everyone looks fab--Madde looks regal and star-power-wattage. Silvia looks regal and bright. Victoria takes chances and is a modern princess, and I love it. Sofia's styling is so gorgeous, I can't stand it (her hair is sooo amazing).

Sylvia is too old for that garish red. Sofia looked lovely. Victoria's gown was great if you didn't see the back, which was awful. Madde look lovely, too.

The queen looks okay, red lace is not doing her too many favors though. Not liking CP Victoria's gown tonight. It's just off. Madeleine's dress is nice. Don't like her hair down though. And I actually like Sofia's dress tonight. Nice cut that fits her well and her hair is lovely.

Now that I have seen a side/back picture of Victoria, I must admit that I don't particularly like the dress of Victoria. Probably necessary to see the real thing to get a fair idea of how it looks like.

SVT has put the Nobel Prize Concert to their SVTplay. Unfortunately it can be seen only in Sweden, not abroad.

Svensk Damtidning writes this week, that the king's decision about the new seating order at the Nobel ceremony wasn't about the lack of space at the stage, but that the king has decided that now and in the future, Victoria and Daniel will be most at the focus. The way Victoria was dressed and the way she looked, she is more and more preparing to be the queen. At the Nobel ceremony it was Victoria who was at the focus. It didn't matter that it was Sofia's debute or Madeleine's comeback. And queen Silvia had taken a step backwards and let her daughter be at the limelight.

Svensk Damtidning had also noticed like I did, that both Victoria and Daniel drank tea at the banquet, not coffee. The Nobel confectioner Daniel Roos told already before the Nobel day, that about 100 people had asked for special meal and Victoria was one of them, she has lactose intolerance.
Svensk Damtidning even writes that at the banquet Carl Philip and Sofia talked mostly with each other, which isn't according to the etiquette and it is not very nice towards their table partners.

I would stick to my fiancé too, if I only had one. Etiquette is nothing for me.

Sofia's table partner was the Speaker of the Parliament, the man second in rank order in Sweden after the king. One would of course hope that the prince and his future wife would follow the royal etiquette. Carl Philip's table partner was the wife of one of the Laureates from Japan. What kind of PR that is for Sweden, if a member of the Swedish royal family doesn't speak with his table partner?

That is exactly what I thought too. The dress of Victoria contributed too to focusing on her and her husband. V&D looked quite pleased about it as well, as shown by their hand holding, at some point. Somehow I thought they regarded as a further step ahead for them to be able to sit on the same row.

Exactly so.
