I thought it might interest some to see how this event is covered in the foreign press. Here from BB:

Column of Olivia Svenson in Aftonbladet

Dress of 82 000 - someone has lost the concept
What would you do if you suddenly got SEK 82,000?
I know what Princess Sofia would do. The midnight blue dress with an "embroidered neckline of crystal sequins" that she wore at the Nobel banquet cost namely exactly SEK 82,161, according to designer Oscar de la Renta's website. The dress got five pluses from Aftonbladet's fashion expert, and certainly was good looking. Stylish, and quite absurd super expensive.
And now I sit here and feel a bit provoked and need to breathe into a paper bag. Although:
1. The royals are known to have a black belt in luxury consumption, which means that diamond watches, sports cars and haute couture creations are crowded together at the palace.
2. Nobel banquet is the event of the year that might require the finest finery.
3. Sofia is something of a charity queen, she is for example the co-founder of Project Playground.
4. She might want to be able to do what she wants with her money without anyone to mess and write indignant columns on the subject.
Never mind that the 82 000 SEK is what a grown man is expected to pay for food during a two year period - French sewing art and emerald tiaras is fun. The royals must be able to glitter, if they are like us the whole point is lost. More glitter to Sofia!
Or I state the following: Someone has lost the concept and the only reasonable solution would be that all the princes and princesses would be in second-hand clothes at the next Nobel. Not that it is necessarily more beautiful. But because it would be a little more modern.

Ph, poor "queen's charity" for such a criticism that she doesn't deserve... Shame on that...

The court published today a family photo taken at the Nobel banquet at the Stockholm City Hall. Photo is taken by photographer Jonas Ekströmer.

Also another group photo was taken, the royal children with their spouses.

Very nice to see the group photo. Last year, Victoria & Daniel did a family pic with Estelle on the 2nd Nobel day. I wouldn't mind if they turned this into a regular thing and have new family pics each year.

Yes, it would be great if the court would publish a formal family photo taken at the Nobel banquet every year.
In 2011 the photo agencies published photos of Victoria and Daniel posing at the same place at the City Hall:
