They are the same dress in different colors. Kate just looks far better. It is a pity to wear the same thing that someone else makes look really stunning. Alexandra looked nice, but not after the other photo.

They aren't the "same" dress since Kate's is from Jenny Packham and Alexandra's from Tadashi Shoji.

A royal bargain! Four-months-pregnant Princess Madeleine attends black tie gala in $367 gown | Mail Online

I fail to see any reason to mention the price of the dress.

Madeleine and Chris were seen walking in NYC, according to Expressen they went from their home to their gym and then to Madison Avenue.

According to Expressen's sources, Eva O'Neill is also invited to the queen's 70th birthday party.

Madeleine will not attend the Nobles - quote from her facebook page:
It saddens me that I won't be able to attend the Nobel Festivities this year. Due to the fact that I'm expecting a baby girl in February, it would be hard for me to participate in the lengthy program over the two days. My heart, however, will be in Stockholm.

Quite dramatic. The royal family are just as the honour guests at the Nobel ceremony, and Madeleine isn't the most important person there. So she can't participate at the lengthy program on two days while she is pregnant. But millions of women work for eight hours a day when they are 7 months pregnant. And Madeleine says nothing about that flying to Sweden would be tough, obviously because she and Chris are planning to fly to Sweden a week later.

I agree Lady Finn.

But maybe Madeleine is very uncomfortable or simply not having an easy pregnancy. I will try to give her the benefit of the doubt here.

I agree as well, I said it in another thread, although pregnant women have kind of a card blache, it looks a bit like nitpicking to me: nobels without Chris no thanks, mom's birthday a week later with Chris sure thing. We are talking about a swedish princess here whose duty it is to attend such events. To skip the most high profile event of the year of the SRF and attend a private one a week later leaves a bad taste. I would have understood if she had said, sorry guys, I cant fly anymore, thats it for me. I am curious if Madde goes back to NY after Silvia's birthday.

Sometimes I get the impression that M is a bit spoiled, like she wants to have her cake and eat it tooooo. Over the years of viewing her, it seems that she like to *have it my way or the else*. I think being a royal you have a huge responsibility to your position and your country, it would have been better for her to go to the Nobles and done some small event without a lot of standing or sitting (say put in an appearance for the family) and stayed in Sweden for her mother's birthday. That would have made things look a lot better for her and still would have made the family look more on a positive side then negative. Her being this way does not make her look like she really wants to do the job, just to have the perks and be called a princess. Some non-royal women that have married crown princes of Europe have really taken on the role and done the job with flying colors, say now Queen Max whom I just adore. M really should decide how she wants to play the role of princess and wife, she can do both but not one just when she feels like it.

And sometimes I think people just like nitpicking with Madeleine.

Every woman's pregnancy is different and we don't how the specifics of her pregnancy. What wrong with wanting to fly to Sweden once instead of twice within a short time period and in the company of her husband? How awful is that? Maybe she has an appointment of some sort in NY between the Nobels and her mother's birthday and can't fly back and forth. And she actually prefer to fly with her husband Did anyone think about that?

As previously stated Madeleine isn't the most important person there, so really it shouldn't matter if she doesn't attend. All you really need is the King, Queen, Victoria and the person being honoured.

I am a bit dissappointed now, too.
Why does she not fly to Stockholm and stays until after Christmas? She wanted to fly anyway..... being too stressful, gosh, why then just attending the first day, Dec 10th? And leaving out the other activities?
Victoria did the same 2 years ago....

Seems not to be a valid reason to me missing the most important Event of the year, sorry. And yes, this is a duty of a princess. Looking like spoiled to me, too.

Some airlines don't allow pregnant women to fly for safety reasons, and Madeleine is quite far along now, so perhaps that's why she isn't attending. Victoria lived in Stockholm during her pregnancy so it was "easier" for her.

However I do agree with you on some points, it's quite disappointing not to see Madeleine attend. Now that we know that Victoria won't be in attendance either, we'll be seeing less tiaras and gowns.
