Royal Wedding 2015: The Pre-Wedding Dinner

Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist‘s pre-wedding dinner was held tonight in Stockholm. The couple and their guests climbed aboard the SS Stockholm for a trip around the harbor on their way to the actual dinner. The Swedish royal family came out – including King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, and Prince Daniel (Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill joined the dinner later, skipping the boat ride) – as well as some early bird foreign royals (Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon, who skipped the boat ride)

Royal Round Up: Royal Wedding Tiaras

I thought about doing a “Which Tiara Will Sofia Wear” post going through all of the Swedish tiaras to contemplate which one Sofia Hellqvist will wear on her wedding day on Saturday, but, while looking at photos of the Swedish tiaras would be fun, realistically there are only a handful of tiaras she could wear that aren’t in use solely by Queen Silvia or owned by other people. Of those, there really is only one that would work well as a wedding tiara (The Connaught Tiara), plus Silvia will have to tiara all of the King’s sisters (I’m guessing Princess Christina will wear the Six Button Tiara). My guess for Sofia is that she will get a brand new tiara to wear.

So instead of listing all of the Swedish tiaras and telling you why Sofia won’t be wearing them, let’s keep on the theme of royal wedding rewinds and take a look at past royal wedding tiaras for the ladies we’ve been looking at this week. As with the engagement rings and wedding dresses, this is not an exhaustive list of royal wedding tiaras, and we’ll be starting with the Swedes.

Queen Margrethe’s 75th birthday gala dinner: night one

The second dinner is tonight, on her actual birthday. The first gala was attended by many monarchs (and their spouses) from across Europe. No one from the British Royal Family was there. The gala was a white tie event with tiaras and orders.
