Crown Princess Victoria looks beautiful!
Well what can I say about Crown Princess Victoria? She looks absolutely beautiful and stunning! Her hair is lovely, both her outfit and hat is very stylish. Crown Princess Victoria in my opinion looks like a fashion icon in that outfit, one of the finest and elegant I have ever seen her in. :clap:

Thank you for the photographs everyone.

Victoria looked every inch a queen to be. Looked lovely at the airport. She looked elegent & very nicely put together. Im not too sure what to think about the queen's hat, its an okay hat for outdoors, but indoors? I thought it looked out of place. Besides that she looked nice.
Nice begining for a visit from both sides.
Would be interesting to get the programme of the visit.

Love Victoria´s shoes

Victorias daytime outfit was really beautiful. Although I can't believe that it is warm enough in Sweden for her to be outside without a coat this time of the year. She must have been freezing.

I am not particulary fond of the hem on Silvias dress in the evening. Its really quite odd. Nor am I all that fond of Madeleines dress or for that matter Victorias.

Is it me or does Madeleine seem to have put on a bit of weight. Not that it looks bad, and not that we all need to be stick thin. In fact I'm tired of everyone thinking that princesses and women in general need to be toothpicks! But she does seem a bit more solid, for lack of a better word.

And why oh why must Victoria wear that awful tiara when there are so many really and truly beautiful ones in their collection in Sweden? Never mind that it's about time that Madeleine also got a really solid piece as well instead of the thimble on her head.

And why is Madeleine wearing a different order than Silvia and Victoria?

Sad to say, but I don't think any of the royal ladies look good - the sashes are way to big to look elegant. Why does Romania not make their sashes in a 'lady-size'?


Madame Royale 03-12-2008 08:29 AM

Madeleine looks very healthy and pretty, but perhaps she could work on what are becoming some rather impressive 'tuckshop' arms.

Anita 03-12-2008 08:36 AM

For once, Victoria was far more beautiful than Madeleine during the Gala . She had a beautiful gown, a beautiful hair-do ( I like it when her hair are not up) and a beautiful face : she was stunning !:flowers:

Madeleine however was less shining and she is now, to my mind, too fat ...
