My favourite was Princess Madeleine's gown from the dinner, even if it was a repeat from Victoria. The gown looked stunning on both Princesses. But I also like Victoria's gown and those of Märtha-Louise, Mathilde and Princess Takamado.

All the royal women looked wonderful and pushed the boat out for this event.

Victoria and Madeleine both wore incredible dresses with fine details and beautifully accessorised.

The four Haga princesses also look stunning and so my vote went to Princess Desiree for her simple white gown, with delicate detailing - the star-burst beading on the bodice and shoulder was a clever idea highlighting her brother's portraits on the Orders!

I thought Princess Madeleine's April 30th gown was beautiful, so she got my vote. My second favorite was CP Victoria's outfit from April 29.

Maddie was stunning and got my vote.

Mathilde came in a very close second. Loved the color and print.

Victoria beautiful third in her rose dress. The color underwhelmed me or she may have placed higher.

Margrethe, Desiree and Takomodo all looked great as well.

Princess Madeleine was stunning because of her simple yet elegant look. Her natural baauty a great fitness helped that a lot, to be frank.

My vote went to Princess Madeleine's silver Elie Saab gown. I loved the way it was accessorized, the jewellery was perfect. Victoria was a big let down for me. Her dress from the 30th was really bland, didn't like the colour or style.
I really liked Queen Silvia dresses from both days.

My vote goes to Crownprincess Mary. I simply love the pattern of her gown. A close second place is Princess Beatrix. Her gown is a great eyecatcher.

I voted for Princess Martha Louise, I don't normally like her style but I liked this dress as soon as I saw it.

My overall favourite was Princess Martha Louise, closely followed by Princess Madeleine.

There were many nice gowns. I also liked Princess Mary, Queen Mathilde, Queen Margrethe and Princess Victoria.
