I think that there is a lot wrong with the cooks and kitchen staff of the Nobel banquet, if they tell to the press that a member of the royal family has asked for a special menu. They shouldn't tell that kind of things about anyone attending at the banquet.

I love the Connaught. I have to admit its one of my all time faves, not just among the Swedish tiaras. Twice in one year on Vic, I am spoiled. I think looks better here than wedding with her hair style. I love her dress and jewels though I prefer the red gown last year.

Madeleine looks amazing. My top pick. I love the tiara on her.

Sofia's tiara just looks wrong all around. the Spearmint tiara is up there with Mary's wedding tiara IMO. She is finally looking a bit pregnant, whether it is the dress or she has popped a bit, not sure.

Sofia had chosen an evening gown signed by Oscar de la Renta. The prise is $8,990.00 according to Oscar de la Renta Floral-Embellished Ball Gown, Cardinal

I've just checked new pictures of Crownprincess Victoria and was glowing there. I'm glad it was just in a few picture in which she looked sad/tired and I am glad I was mistaken!

I very much enjoyed the Nobels tonight...The only let-me-down of the evenings (fashion dissapointments) were the queen's dress and Sofia's awkard position of the tiara. I am glad she didn't wear a family's one for tonight.

I've felt that way now both times she's worn it. There's something about the design of it that doesn't sit well on the head. I can't say I really like it at all.

The best for me is of course seeing Victoria and Daniel and the king and queen. And after that the Laureates getting their Prizes and hearing them interviewed. Most of them are really fascinating people. But one of the highlight for me every year is the music at the Nobel Prize Ceremony. I enjoy of that so much every year. This year also the entertainment at the banquet was very good compared to some years.

I wouldn't say 'mistaken' that's just your interpretation of a particular picture(s)

Yes those pictures are very nice and you really get a good look at the dresses. I think they all looked wonderful but Princess Christina has an amazing gown IMO.

Princess Madeleine looks like a dream. She makes the aquamarine kokoshnik look good.
Aquamarines bring out the blue in her eyes so much more.
She should wear aquamarines more often

Silvia wore the 9-prong, Victoria brought it with the Connaught, and Madeleine was a great surprise with the Aquamarine kokoshnik. Sofia's wedding tiara looked like small potatoes compared to the big guns the royal ladies wore. Even Christina rocked the 6-button. The Emerald & Diamond Tiara's history is still unknown, even with a jewelry expert SvD rounded up to take a stab at it: Historien bakom Sofias diadem | Svensk Damtidning . By its size Sofia's diadem could be a starter tiara for Estelle and Leonore, or for her daughter (if she's having a girl).

I don't think Sofia's wedding tiara would be used as a starter for Estelle or Leo. It is her personal tiara. If Sofia has a girl, it might be understandable for her to use it as a starter. But why would Estelle, the future queen of Sweden, be given her aunt's wedding tiara as a starter?? If the royals don't make one for the girls, it would make more sense for them to wear their mother's starter.

Not surprised to see Christina in the 6 button, she has worn it the past number of years. I like that Sofia, a new member of the family, is wearing her starter tiara. Christina is the king's sister and it is not surprising she wear one of the bigger family tiaras.

Frankly, Sofia was the best dressed. She needs to get rid of that ugly tiara. Hated Victoria's dress. The Connaught Tiara is lovely. Maddy look great, but gray is not her best color.

My call for the tiaras for night 2 of the Nobels:

Silvia: Luechentburg
Victoria: Steel Cut
Madeleine: Modern Fringe (she made a splash tonight)
Sofia: wedding (not sure if she gets a tiara from the vault yet).

It will be interesting to see what is happening with the Aquamarine kokoshnik tiara. I find it unlikely that Princess Madeleine just decided to borrow it considering the tiaras already available among from Bernadotte Foundation and privately owned. My guess is that someone bought the tiara from Princess Margarethe with the provision that it will continue to be "hers" for any tiara event she may attend. The King may have bought it as a gift to Madeleine especially as Sofia received her own and CP Victoria inherited Princess Lilian's. It has been written that Princess Margarethe has had very limited resources for a long time. Her husband's business did not do well besides he was sick and hospitalized for a very long time before he died. Selling the tiara back to the family yet retain the use of it for special occasions certainly would make sense. This is all pure speculation on my part but the "loan" of the tiara for the Nobel event this year simply does not make sense.
