Good gallery of Victoria and Daniel in Uppsala and the evening's concert
Bernard Rübsamen

The best for me on the day were Estelle's photo, the king and queen in Örebro, Victoria and Daniel in Uppsala and the Tapto at the end of the day at the courtyard of the Royal Palace. It is wonderful to look at a military band at the courtyard of the Royal Palace.

What was interesting in yesterday, was that the king didn't mention the wedding at his speech at all, like he did in 2010 and 2013.

Robert Sandström probably never thought that the king should come to his bachelor party. But it happened, in the middle of Örebro's city park.
The king and queen visited Örebro on National Day, but the middle of the promenade through the town someone shouted in the audience:
- The King!
One of Robert Sandström's buddies screamed - and the King immediately changed course straight toward the bachelor party. He greeted the prospective husband Robert.
- I was so flabbergasted that I barely remember exactly. But he asked about the wedding and I welcomed him to Örebro, says Robert.
His friend Christoffer Nilsson, who took the photos, tells that the plan was actually quite different.
- The plan was to humiliate Robert bit with various exercises. Then we realized that the king will probably go by, so I put up Robert to try to get a photo of the king in the background. But it turned out considerably better than that, he says.
- We lived in this intoxication throughout the evening and night.
Both Robert and Christopher celebrate that the king chose to come and talk.
- I thought it was great fun, it's impressive that he took the time and talked with us. He showed interest and thought it was funny. Also Silvia said congratulations, says Robert.
- I think it's really great done by him. It's a very nice gesture. He gave us, Robert and Robert's wife to be a memory for life, says Christoffer.

More importantly, I now know that if Princess Madeleine makes it to the wedding she will be wearing high heels!

Quite right. Just another National Day although I suspect that Princess Leonore may have been just a little too much to handle.

Happily, it would seem so. Love to see Sofia with an arm around Estelle to prevent her falling out of the carriage.

Well it seems we will have to wait until Victoria is Queen before we see equality of dress on National Day. As we have seen, some of the women look lovely and some don't, and some not all the time. I think Daniel and Carl Philip will look splendid in hose. Sauce for the Goose? Sauce for the Gander!

It's been a charming day, from Estelle's beautiful starter picture Perfect Princess to little Princess Thundercloud. That was quite some pout for such a little girl. But, more importantly, it's a healthy show of "normal".

I've just been looking at the posed photos with all the ladies in the national dress. Lovely pics but why does Carl Gustav always look so grumpy?

I've seen many posts that write about the "Traditional" national dress worn by the royal ladies. Actually there's nothing traditional about it at all. Thought its inspired by the local costumes worn by the people for centuries it was created in 1902 by a association that wanted to liberate the-woman-of-the-day from the foreign fashions and create something easy and practical for them to wear.
The royal ladies of the day wore local costumes. Queen Victoria wore amongst others the Ölandsdress & the Vingåkersdress while Crown princess Margareta wore the Baradress (which incidentally is on a permanent display just a few km from where I live)
The dress wasn't a success and was quickly forgotten until it started to appear at museums in the 70s. Then after Queen Silvia started to wear it at the newly created "Day of the Swedish flag" in 1983 it had quite the renaissance.

I tink that the Swedish parliament should declare this as the national costume for men and royal males should be mandated to wear this at future National Days.

I'm sure Chris saw this coming and that's why he refused a title.

Although I too would have loved to see that Toddler version of the Female Swedish National Dress on Leonore today. :). Oh well...Speaking of the National Dress, IMHO I do not think it flatters a very heavily pregnant lady at all. Just the way the Overskirt/Apron is gathered and how far up it was riding, it just didn't do Madeleine any favours IMO and yes, I do know she had to wear it today.
You've made a good point about Leonore's absence. Since Chris is now living in London, perhaps Leonore was visiting him there or she went with him there for a while.

The small version of Leonore's costume was adorable last year so I agree, it would've been cute to see her in national dress again this year. Maybe she will attend next year's celebrations.

I was wondering about Estelle's headband too. It looks like it's an additional part of the national dress, maybe it's something that's only worn by children because Silvia, Victoria, Madeleine and Sofia weren't wearing it.

That's an adorable detail. Sofia has been growing on me since her engagement. It appears that she has been quickly accepted into the family and she also seems to be more reserved and serious about her role now that she will become a member of the SRF.

That's adorable, Estelle is definitely the junior queen of facial expressions. I think she gets it from her mother.

I was utterly charmed by this photo of Madeleine. She looked so happy.

Thank you for sharing this detail, I never knew that before - a very interesting read. So the traditional dress is not so traditional. Was the national dress worn a lot when it was first created in 1902 (because you'd said that it was designed so that Swedish women could have something more practical to wear)?

I like the traditional dress but P.Victoria and P. Madeleine head dress reminds me of the 60's show, the Flying Nun with Sally Fields,

That photo of Madeleine and Sofia reminds me...I really love the brooches/pins the Ladies all wear in the centre of the neckline of the blouse and I keep meaning to ask this every year...What is the significance of them as part of the National Dress? They must have some sort of meaning, as all the Ladies are wearing them, I'm just wondering what it is.

I'd also love to get one for myself, but that's a topic for another thread. . Thanks in advance for the answer!! :)

I'm not sure but they must be an adaption of the numerous silver brooches that are incorporated one way or another in the old local traditional costumes.

At least in my national dress here in Finland this kind of brooch is needed to keep the neckline closed. There is a small vent in the middle, which is without buttons.

Traditionally in 1800's, girls had a small brooch. When a woman got married, her groom gave her a bigger brooch

The program of the royal family here, additions to Kingen's post:
10.00 Carl Philip and Sofia open the gates to the Open Palace.
12.20 Carl Philip attends at the change of the Royal Guards on the Outer Courtyard at the Royal Palace.

Translation

According to the calendar Chris doesn't attend at the concert in Skansen and the reception after that.

The Royal Family gathers for tradition filled celebration of the National Day.
With one exception: for the second year in a row Chris misses the celebration.
Princess Madeleine's husband Chris O'Neill has for the second year in a row booked business meetings abroad to the National Day.
- He's obviously very sorry not to be able to attend. The reason is that he has a long time had appointments that he can't simply change. He has tried but he can't. However, he is with at the baptism and then it's several activities before the National Day. But on the National Day he is prevented because of his work. He is very sorry about it, says Margareta Thorgren.
