I’m breaking the guests into two parts: The Swedish Royal Family, and foreign royals. This post covers the Swedish royal family (go here for the Bride and Groom coverage).
Queen Silvia wore a light lilac dress in silk satin embroidered with lace, sequins, and stones. She wore the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara and matching earrings and brooch. She wore a diamond necklace. Silvia wore her sash and star of the Order of the Seraphim, as well as her miniature portrait of the King.
Silvia looked pretty enough. At least it’s not a pantsuit.
King Carl XVI Gustaf wore the 1878 model of the Navy admiral uniform, his sash and star of the Order of the Seraphim.
Crown Princess Victoria wore a blue-green dress from the H&M Conscious collection. She wore the Connaught Tiara, the sash and star of Order of the Seraphim, and her miniature portrait of the King.
I like the Connaught Tiara on Victoria; it’s a fun change from what she usually wears. I like Victoria’s dress. It’s not the best she’s ever worn, but it’s still pretty.
Prince Daniel wore a tux and his sash and star of the Order of the Seraphim, and the Order of the Polar Star cross around the neck.
Princess Estelle was a bridesmaid. Like, Sofia, Estelle wore Ida Sjöstedt.
Princess Madeleine wore an apricot pink Elie Saab gown with soft falling silk and stone embroidery on the bodice. She wore the Modern Fringe Tiara (which is hers now), and the earrings she wore to her wedding in 2013. Maddie wore the sash and star of the Order of the Seraphim, and her miniature portrait of the King.
I think Maddie looks really pretty. I’ve been really enjoying her pregnancy style lately. She’s my best dressed out of the Swedish royal family.
Chris O’Neill wore a tux and the Order of the Polar Star cross.
The feistiest squirmy little monkey ever, Princess Leonore, wore a dress that once was worn by her great-great-grandfather, Gustaf VI Adolf. Leonore was so squirmy that she got passes around to family member after family member, being held by her father, her mother, Daniel, Silvia, and Victoria.
Princess Christina wore purple and the Six Button Tiara (which I predicted on Thursday).
Christina’s son, Gustaf Magnuson, and daughter-in-law, Victoria Magnuson, also attended. Is it weird that I kind of like Victoria’s dress?
