I find Sonja's dress rather odd for some reason, but I like how she wore yellow as its a spring colour.

One of my favorite gowns worn by Sonja. Lovely!

Great color and jewels (the older queens know how to rock the bright colors). I even like the dress from the waist up. But the skirt looks like some odd mix of tablecloth and 'wild west' costume.

She looks great, the colour is very flattering on her, jewellery is fabulous and I like the peep of funky silver shoes. I like it even if there is a resemblance to a purple Quality Street about the skirt.

Agreed, quite lovely from the waste up lovely. Otherwise TMT (too much taffeta)! I never thought I'd see the return of the 80s fashion but it sure seems to me there's been a trend.

I agree Eya ,the colour is nice on queen Sonja but the dress might look better minus the purple bow .

I think the colour of Sonja's latest gown is wonderful, but that's about it. I agree with Missy- that there's too much taffeta.

If Haakon and MM had made the trip, I'd expect MM to try and knock it out of the park fashion wise to match Italy (like Maxima tried in Paris with some hits and misses). I don't expect, maybe wrongly, the same with the older queens. I don't expect Sonja to try and rock the 'high fashion' look any more than I'd expect it from Liz (though she is younger). That said, less taffeta would definitely be encouraged.

Queen Sonja to the trip in Italy she was generally very well dressed! I like more the combination Black-White

She looks lovely in the pictures. Personally, I like the printed dress - love the vibrant colours - and the last creamy yellow outfit the best. I like her shoes here.

Not especially keen on the blue trousers, I think the colour is slightly off with the jacket.

I think the black and white would be so much better without the black tights, flat shoes and different shaped skirt - either longer or more tailored. From the waist down she appears to be channelling her inner chamber maid.

They've certainly been lucky with the weather.

I love the upper half and her jewels, but the weird scalloped tiers are bad.

Though a bit odd, a senior version of frozen, I actually like astrid the best tonight.

The yellow gown is one of her worst looks.
