More tiaras from the Swedish royals at the Nobel Laureates Dinner

More tiaras! Last night, December 11, King Carl XVI Gustaf held the annual dinner for the Nobel Laureates at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. All the royal ladies (and gents) were out to welcome the laureates to the palace. Because this is a white tie dinner, we get more gowns and more tiara photos. Yay! The gowns were different, obviously, but the only royal lady to switch up her tiara game was Queen Silvia. Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine stuck to their trusty fringe tiaras from the day before. Sofia Hellqvist still didn’t wear a tiara, but she did wear a hair brooch.

Silvia, Victoria, Madeleine, Sofia: Which Swedish Royal lady looked best at the Nobel Prize Ceremony?

Cue the mic drop, Crown Princess Victoria just schooled everyone in how to bring the fashion dramz. Victoria went all out stunning for the Nobel Prize Ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall and Nobel Banquet at Stockholm City Hall in a red, strapless ballgown accessorized with a fringe tiara. This is what I think of when I think of a Princess. That’s not to say that Queen Silvia, Princess Madeleine, and Sofia Hellqvist didn’t look fantastic, they did, but Victoria stole the show for me.

Swedish Royals: Carl Philip’s wedding date + Princess Madeleine’s use of social media to release baby photos

I want to take a second to talk about the Swedish Royals, in particular Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip. Carl Philip’s wedding date was announced, and Madeleine and Sofia Hellqvist might make an appearance at this year’s Nobel banquet. Also, I want to take a moment and commend Madeleine on her use of social media to provide photo updates on her daughter, Princess Leonore (versus Prince William and Kate Middleton who threaten the press and photographers whenever there are pictures of Prince George).

Princess Madeleine and Queen Silvia in New York for Childhood Foundation

Hot on the heels of an interesting conversation in the previous post’s comments about charity and whether the royal’s involvement in charity is worth anything, here’s a post on Princess Madeleine and Queen Silvia of Sweden in New York last week. Silvia and Madeleine are involved with charity that deals with child protection from violence and exploitation–Silvia created World Childhood Foundation and Madeleine works for Childhood USA–so they were in New York last week to attend a few events with the United Nations and Global Citizen.

Swedish Royals: Silvia, Madeleine and Victoria step out for Childhood’s anniversary dinner

The unexpected news of Kate Middleton’s second pregnancy has overshadowed at lot, and will continue to dominate the press until the new royal sprog is born next April (seriously, the press will find any and all reasons to talk about the royal baby, including telling us what HG is even though they did that already with the last pregnancy–and do we really need other women’s accounts of it, Daily Mail? Or other women’s accounts of dealing with two kids under two? I don’t think so). Now that I’ve gotten completely sidetracked… This post is about the Swedish royals, because I won’t let them be forgotten just because Kate decided to get knocked up again.

The World Childhood Foundation celebrated it’s 15th anniversary yesterday, September 9, and Queen Silvia (the founder), Princess Madeleine and husband Chris O’Neill, and Crown Princess Victoria and husband Prince Daniel attended the gala dinner in honor of the anniversary. Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine were busy September 8 as well when both attended the third International Council meeting held at the Royal Palace–where they discussed issues common to the four sister foundations in Sweden, USA, Brazil, and Germany.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden celebrated her 37th birthday Monday July 14.  Victoria was born Princess Victoria on July 14, 1977 as the first child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.  In 1980, the laws of succession changed and she became the heir apparent and was made Crown Princess.  Her birthday is marked as a national holiday, Victoria Day (Victoriadagen).  Crowds gathered outside Sollidens castle in Oland to celebrate her birthday, where the King gave a speech.  For this event, Victoria was accompanied by her husband Prince Daniel, their daughter Princess Estelle, Queen Silvia and King Carl XVI Gustaf.

SRF: Leonore is christened as Madeleine and Chris celebrate their first wedding anniversary (updated with official photos)

Princess Leonore

Princess Leonore, daughter of Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Chris O’Neill, was baptized this morning at the Drottningholm Palace chapel in Stockholm.  Leonore was pretty well behaved.  She was a bit fussy when they arrived, but calmed down and didn’t even cry when she was baptized (unlike her mother, Madeleine, who wailed).  Part of the baptism includes Leonore receiving the Order of the Seraphim—that’s the little blue sash and pin she received.  Leonore was born on February 20, 2014 at 10:41 EST in New York City.  Her baptism comes on her parent’s first wedding anniversary (more on that below).

Happy National Day, Sweden!  June 6 is the National Day of Sweden, and the Royal Family was out in celebration.  Even little Princess Leonore joined in!  Some history of National Day: it was established in 1915 as Swedish Flag Day; in 1983 Flag day was merged to form National Day; National Day is celebrated on June 6 to mark two historical events, the date Gustav Vasa was elected King in 1523 and the date the Constitution Act was signed in 1809.

Princess Estelle went to New York in the middle of April—along with her parents, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel—to visit her cousin, Princess Leonore.  On her Facebook page, Princess Madeleine posted the photo and captioned it, “A cousin is a ready-made friend for life…”

Princess Leonore’s Christening will take place at the Royal Chapel at Drottningholm Palace on Sunday, June 8, 2014—exactly one year after her parent’s wedding.

Enjoy the cuteness!
