The Swedish Royal Family decided to do a Summer photocall at Solliden Palace this year. They usually don’t do a Summer photocall the way the Danish and Dutch royal families do but here we are. The entire family participated in the photocall which took place last Friday, the day after Victoria Day.
I love seeing the family in motion. Prince Nicolas got a bit fussy and Princess Leonore, being Princess Leonore, ran away and Princess Madeleine had to chase after her. Princess Estelle was a little pro sitting in between her grandparents, and Prince Oscar had his best Permanent Grumpy Face on.
Leonore is probably really hard to parent, but she sure is fun to watch.
Crown Princess Victoria wore a skirt from H&M. The exact skirt and color are not available on their website, but the same pattern in a different colorway is available in a dress, blouse, and shorts. Victoria also wore her brown Zara wedges ($49.90) she wore to Victoria Day.
Princess Estelle wore the same white and blue Livly dress that Leonore wore in Gotland. I’m not sure if it’s the same exact dress or if they both have the dress but in two different sizes.
Prince Daniel wore a snazzy powder blue blazer with navy pants, and Prince Oscar wore a blue knit bodysuit and grey booties.
Princess Madeleine wore a sleeveless Valentino Blue Bird Print Blouse (originally $1590, but on sale in the 400s at several sites) and tan pants.
Princess Leonore wore a blue dress and blue bow. Chris O’Neill wore a navy blazer/tan pant combo while Prince Nicolas wore a blue shirt.
I’ve complained many times about how Prince George wears so much blue, and in the interest of fairness I’m going to now complain about how much blue Maddie’s children wear. This is the fourth blue dress in a row for Leonore after her two blue dresses in Gotland and her blue dress at Oscar’s baptism, and Nicolas has worn blue almost exclusively since he was born. There are more colors in the rainbow than blue, you guys.
Princess Sofia wore a blue shirt and white pants while Prince Carl Philip wore a navy blazer and tan pants. Prince Alexander wore a Petit Bateau Baby Boy Cotton Knit Anchor Sweater ($56.00).
King Carl XVI Gustaf wore a tan blazer over a blue shirt and blue pants. Queen Silvia apparently didn’t get the Blue Memo because she opted for a bright pink jacket.
