Prince Carl Philip and the Order of the Polar Star
I notice on the main blog that is was Prince Carl of Sweden's 35th birthday on May 13th. The picture that accompanied the article reminded me of a thread some time ago discussing the black ribbon neck badges that the Swedish royal men have been wearing of late.
At the time, as I recall, it was thought that they had reverted to using the older style black ribbon for the Order of the Polar Star as opposed to the newer (after 1975 I think) blue ribbon with yellow sides.
Was this ever definitively settled? and,
Is the black ribbon only to be used for evenings/formal events. That is, will we see the blue ribbon at a daytime or less formal event?
