If you type this number #52119341 into the search field of getty images there is a pic of Crown Princess Victoria. Have we seen this pic posted before?

Nevermind, I mistook the outfit for a dress, it's a pantsuit that she wore from the Gala in Madrid.

Yesterday, 1 December, Crown Princess Victoria attended the "Focus on Environment" seminar held by The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences at their headquarters. At this event, the Crown Princess also awarded this year's Carl Mannerfelt Prize from the World Wildlife Fund to Anna Schytt.

Yennie, thanks for the picture from Gala at yesterday. I think the dress from the crown princess is beautiful (but old) and suit her wonderful.

But no pictures from the queen?

Another picture of Victoria from Royalcourt.se. Unfortunately they don´t have pics of the king & queen.
It could just be the angle...but slowly it seems as if Victoria would compete with Popeye. Does AXA food also produce spinach?

Picture by Fredrik Perssons/Pressens Bild via Aftonbladet

The Solemn Gathering is a very special occasion indeed, it is the only ”open” proceeding that the Swedish Academy holds – but it is only opened in the sense that only invitees are welcome. All other proceedings of the Swedish Academy are held behind closed doors and off limits to the media and the public.

As you can see in the picture that Lena posted, the Lady-in-Waiting behind the Crown Princess is wearing her Court Dress, something that is only done for very special occasions.

The gathering relays on tradition, things are done about as they always have. The Solemn Gathering was held in the Great Hall of the Stock Exchange House, and everything was done in a very old fashioned way. The gathered audience of course rose when the royals entered, but also when the members of the Swedish Academy entered the room to take their places in the middle – also the royals rose for them.

During the proceedings, Mr Englund, a member of the Academy, read an essay about Queen Kristina during which he quoted her:
- People marry because they don’t know what they are doing.
Aftonbladet noted that Crown Princess Victoria closed her eyes and smiled during the quote.

Aftonbladet calls the occasion “a mass for the word”, and pointed out that most attendees were Court people, academics and people alike.

Those of you who read Swedish can get the whole Aftonbladet article on this occasion here.

Question Dress

I thought Crown Princess Victoria wore that dress for the first time at the Nobel 2000 awards? Which was on the 10th December 2000.

yes, its an annual gathering...
I think the dress is ok, but I dont like the colour, its to "much", it looks like there´s glitter on it.

I think the first time we saw the dress was at Nobel 2000, but as seen in the above post she has worn it many times.

I agree there...The cut and the silhouette are right, but the color...it's not red, it's not pink...a bit weird.
Wasn't it the same dress at Nobel 2004 also?
