Its very pretty and romantic butterfly dress for Victoria.
Must admit I was surprised she choose something so frothy, but its always good when royals manage to suprise us
I would have liked this look even better had she done something else with her hair because for me flatly slicked back hair didn't quite match this overall style (but this is just my preference/opinion).

Victoria looks absolutely wonderful, this is one of her best looks ever. The dress is gorgeous, but is also allows her to take care of her children without that she had to think about her clothes. And it is great that she didn't wear a hat, but a small headpiece, so that we could see her beautiful and happy face, and her lovely hairdo, which matches her dress do well today.

It's okay...not a huge fan of it. I think it's too much..maybe if the top were plain ...I like the skirt part better than the top.

The dress is a bit fussy and twee for my tastes, but it looks pretty on her, and is fitting for such a special occasion. A looser, softer hairstyle would fit better with the romantic look of the dress.

Love Oscar's facial expressions. He looks so much like Estelle did at his age.

Happy Birthday Victoria!!!

Victoria looked breathtaking. Her dress is gorgeous, as is her hair.

I think Victoria has a great sense of style in general. This dress seems a little frou frou for someone whose style in general is very streamlined and elegant but I think she pulls it off. It is her birthday after all, so she might as well wear a proper birthday dress!
All of the children are adorable!

Absolutely beautiful birthday girl

I find it unique and beautiful. I would prefer the top plain or at least just pattern, the 3D butterflies just on the skirt. But stunning the same.

Princess Victoria looks absolutely gorgeous, that is such a beautiful dress on her. That smile on her says it all, she is just a beautiful person inside and out. Her love for her husband shines in everything she does and those children are some of the happiest little royal babies out there. Wishing her tons of love and joy on this day and everyday.

Victorias dress was disappointing, it would've been the prefect dress of her daughter. The butterflies were a bit too much for my taste. The colors of the dress and the style was flattering.

It is just the right dress for a warm summer day and at this event. According to Expressen swedish fashion designer Camilla Thulin has designed this dress especially for Victoria. Victoria looks great in it, and it is also very practical, when dealing with the children and there are cameras everywhere, both on the adults and on children.

Victoria's hair looks lovely, as always.

Wow, isn't that a flashback to the 1950's?I like this sort of simplicity for familiar events.
