Every year on December 20, the Swedish royals gather for the Swedish Academy’s Formal Gathering. This year, King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, Princess Madeleine, and Chris O’Neill attended the event which marks the end of the Academy’s working year.
Silvia wore a repeated blue gown we’ve seen before. Victoria also wore a gown we’ve seen before, a black H&M gown she wore in 2014 to the Childhood anniversary dinner.
Sofia wore a new purple gown, and Madeleine wore a new gown from Self Portrait, the “Moni lace and chiffon gown” ($615). I dislike this brand as a whole, and dislike this dress – although the earrings are nice.
Everyone except Chris wore the Order of the Seraphim; the men wore the Order of the Polar Star; and the women wore the Portrait of the King.
On December 21, Princess Sofia attended the Christmas concert “Christmas in Old Town”. Prince Carl Philip was scheduled to go, but didn’t attend due to Prince Alexander becoming ill. Sofia brought her sisters, Lina Frejd and Sara Hellqvist, instead.
Sofia wore a new dress from By Malina, the “Amina” in dark blue ($326.00), and earrings from Ebba Brahe Jewellery, the Feathers 18k yellow gold & silver with blue sapphires (26,000 SEK, or about $2,800).
