I am curious why Madeleine (and Victoria) wear a small portrait of their father pinned to their ball gowns. Does anyone know why?
Sean.~ should know. :)
It is what is called a family order, and it is given to adult (or late teens) female members of the royal family. A new order is issued at the beginning of each reign. Britain (Queen EII wears one from her father's and grandfather's reign), Norway, and Denmark also have similar orders.
Just in case you're wondering, Christian, there is no sash or star associated with these orders.
don't know why i can't upload the pics from ibl.se :(
IMO, Madeleine is wearing the same gown as Willem&Maxima's Wedding in 2002 - and not a new one because maybe she's saving for a new ball gown for Nobel Prize this December and maybe another new ball gown for Queen Silvia's 60th Birthday this December also.
When Madde wore it to Willem&Maxima's Wedding - i thought it's ugly. Now i realize that it's not about the gown - it's just the hairstyle that i don't like before. because I think now that it is very lovely- with that new hairstyle

I´m quite sure, that she will wear a new one. And I hope her sister will wear a new one too. They shouldn´t save money, when it comes up to the Nobel prize award. I would say there are a lot of people, which know the swedish RF just because of the Nobel prize award. And so I hope they will try hard(er) to impress them.
But I doubt, that she will wear something special on her mother´s birthday...there are no big celebrations planned.
