I'm starting to wonder if before every gala event these days, the Swedish Royal Ladies draw matches - whoever is the looser has to wear the Six Button Tiara!
Can't wait to see pics of CP Victoria wearing it though - I can imagine that it does nothing for her...
I was glad to notice that Victoria stopped wearing the amethyst tiara because the round shape of it always was all wrong for her, IMHO - but now the Six Button?
The only one who looks good with it is Princess Lilian.

Here you can get an idea...Victoria tonight (The Thumbnail is from Scanpix)
IMO the 6 button tiara fits her better than the 4 button tiara...it´s tough some kind of "from the frying pan into the fire"-case

Is this a gala do or a only a lunch?

Only one event for Victoria the whole next week, what is she doing, studying? I imagine she cant meet with von Sydow everyday of the week, I guess he has a job to do as well?

Regarding the gala:
Green, green, green indeed, 'purple platinum'!
IMO, the best gown is Princess Lilian's... her dressmaker for decades who made all her Nobel gowns just died a few days ago (see the Princess Lilian thread) and I'm sure she must have thought of this... :(
CP Victoria's dress is okay, but by now I hope we've seen it for the last time.
As for the Queen... I like her 'bigger' gala dresses much better as she's able to carry them off so beautifully.
Plus, if she doesn't get herself a new evening gown soon, I think we have to set up a fund! How tight can her dress budget be? The cost for all the dry cleaning of all those old dresses might soon amount to the price of a new one!

Queen Silvia

Queen Silvia was born in Germany to a German father and Brazillian mother. She spent most of her childhood in Brazil.

We usually don't get to see pictures from the receptions they host for the diplomats, but I imagine that it's not a gala. It's in the evening though, so I imagine that it has to be something in between.

I think Crown Princess Victoria will be at the World Economic Forum this week, but I though wonder why they haven't put that in the calendar... According to Dagens Industri she will participate in Davos, as she had done previous years as well.

Thank you, that's good to hear. The whole idea is to make it easier for our members to find the different threads on the Swedish Royal Family which are spread around the forums.

Here are two more from the dinner, including a sideview of Victira and the buttons
www.cover.es

I wonder ho Silvias big emerald necklace would look as a tiara, I love emeralds and think they would look great on Victorias dark hair, and then we could leave the buttons where they belong, either in the vault or for Lilian, now they seem to wear one or both of theese ugly creations for every gala. Is there not supposed to be yet another representation dinner soon?

The Swedish Royal Family sells their actions in the Brazilian cellulose Aracruz, defendant to devastate tropical forest.

The accusations, that have had ample repercussion in Swedish mass media, caused an investigation of the Royal House, that have decided to sell its participation in the company, according to an official notice done public today.
The Royal family has a company, Gluonen, that invests mainly in bottoms, although also in actions of other companies, as it is the case of Aracruz.
But they are the three children of Kings Silvia and Carl Gustav, - Victoria, Carl Philip and Magdeleine- the majority proprietors of Gluonen.

Official Dinner
The Royal Palace of Stockholm

Princess Lilian will not be there? ...I know Princess Madeleine won't be there because of NYC but Lilian? She always looks so put together at gala events. Hopefully she'll surprise us and show up like Madeleine did at the second Nobel dinner!

Lilian is there, she wears a peachy-pink dress she has worn before with her laurel wreath tiara and the button necklace she and Madeleine wore the nobel weekend. Victoria wears the burgundy reddish nobel dress she has only worn that one time, her hair is curled and loose with the baden fringe tiara. Silvia ofcourse:p also wears an old dress, a offwhite one covered with lace and the connaught tiara

Finally! Victoria repeated that wonderful dress. Out of all her dresses to recycle, I always wondered why Victoria didn't use this one. She only wore it once to Nobel 2001 (four years ago!) and we have never seen it since. I think it looked better at Nobel 2001 because of the elegant up-do. Carl Philip is hot as always and Lilian just looks peachy! I love how she wears bright colors and pulls them off.
