Let’s kick off February with Princess Sofia, because Kate Middleton is still MIA. Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia attended the Swedish Sports Gala at the Ericsson Globe on Monday, January 25.
Carl Philip presented the Swedish Radio’s Jerring prize to Sarah Sjöström.
Carl Philip gave a speech:
“Few things break barriers as effectively as sport. Sport is open to everyone. And our country has made fantastic efforts so even more people will have the chance to participate and be part of a positive community. A community that enhances children’s self-esteem and where you can gain good experience for life.
“Involvement of adults and leaders play a critical role in children and young people to take up sport. It is a commitment that is rarely seen, but that is incredibly important. You are many, all over Sweden, who give up your time to children and young people the sport. Thank you for never giving up! Thank you for your commitment. I am proud sports in Sweden!”
Sofia wore a navy gown – a customized version of the “Martha” gown from Greta. It costs 4995 Kr which is about $585. That’s pre-customization, though, so Sofia’s gown cost more than that.
Though I thought Sofia looked nice last year at this event, I think she looks much better this year. Sofia’s gown game is definitely improving.
I also liked that Sofia didn’t go with a center part. Sofia’s Zara Horseshoe Earrings (originally $15.90, on sale for $3.99 before selling out) were not my cup of tea, though.
I think it’s a bummer that Sofia doesn’t show her teeth when she smiles as much as she used to. I know a lot of people have a problem with her teeth, but I always admired the fact that Sofia didn’t seem to care that people made fun of her teeth. So if she’s purposely not showing her teeth when she smiles due to the negativity she has received about her teeth, that’s a huge let down.
On Wednesday, January 27 (International Holocaust Remembrance Day), Sofia attended a memorial for the victims of the Holocaust at the Great Synagogue in Stockholm. Sofia is pictured with Hédi Fried, who survived both Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen and came to Sweden in July 1945 and is now an author and psychologist.
On Thursday, January 28, Carl Philip and Sofia attended a board meeting for the Prince Couple’s Foundation at the Royal Palace. Sofia wore a blazer from Filippa K which she previously wore in 2013.
On Friday, January 29, Sofia held a meeting at the Royal Palace with Pernilla Hillerås, the research director of Sophiahemmet University College of which Sofia is the new Honorary President. Sofia attended the Sophiahemmet graduation ceremony on January 21. Sofia wore a shirt from Hunky Dory which she previously wore in November 2014.
