Sorry, it's tacky in my opinion. You're on the royal clock and you know the cameras will be on you. Save that for private moments. I think Silvia's hovdam who is Sofia's mentor needs to schedule a coaching session.
I see nothing strange at that photo, but the shirt photo is tacky.
And it is not Silvia's hovdam (=lady-in waiting), who is Sofia's mentor. Kirstine von Blixen-Finecke is the First Lady of the Court and the Head of the Queen's Household. Also working at The Queen's Household are two Ladies-in-Waiting who alternate with each other, a Court Secretary and a Court Registrar. You can read more about the Queen's Household here:

Sofia has looked the part so far... I wish CP was a bit more "lively" and enthusiatic as his consort...

where there any pictures from yesterday's Dinner in the residence, Karlstad Municipality ?

does sofia's new dress have the same pattern as her top yesterday? strange choice if so!

yes, the hand down CP's shirt was a big no no. she definitely needs some training. i wonder if they have actually taught her a bit of protocol already. my guess is that yes, they have, but clearly not enough to fully perform her new role.

i'll answer my own question: yes it is, as they are both by the same company, GANT.

She is sincerely trying to please her husband, IMO and that is a pretty good start to any marriage.

Someone hasn't done research and background information of the events well enough, Sofia's dress was a wrong choice today for the visit to the boat. There were so many photographers following them that everything is taken to photos.

Come on all the royal ladies make mistakes. Remember Duchess of Cambridge in Australia?

I hardly think that this is tacky. It's a normal, and fairly "discreet" way of publicly displaying love IMO. And it's reassuring to see them so happy and genuine with each other (not that I didn't think that about them before, of course) in public.

Well, there is nothing wrong with her legs.
She'll learn and she'll do Marylin Monroe too one day.
It'll only be a problem if she does it repeatedly.

Yes, but in Sofia's defense. A fairly tight short skirt may not be the best idea when boarding a boat, but couldn't the organizers have found a couple of steps or a stool somewhere?

In all fairness, any royal lady could have ended up in such a situation.
The water level do have a tendency to vary and how could the court know about the water level at that day, at that time and at that bridge?

Sofia is still on trial as far as I'm concerned but this one I'll blame on the organizers.

I agree...maybe a little bit of a longer skirt or dress.
But hardly a big deal...

So far the trip has been nice. they both seem happy to be there

There is no predictable weather forecast in Sweden. Rain can just pass by in a few minutes or can decide to stay for hours or days. Think Scottish weather.

He is a contrast to his sisters as well. Maybe Sofia put her hand on his belly to feel if he is still alive

I think she did good on her first official tour. My favorite picture is the one of her in green raincoat and boots. Not so much glamour there, but they both seemed to be enjoying themselves.
