The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded today in Oslo and as always, the Norwegian royal family was in attendance. Queen Sonja repeated her deep teal wool rounded pillbox trimmed with a wide stripe of embroidered silk ribbon that encircles the piece and a flat bow at the back. The shape of this pillbox is still a little too rounded and bulbous for my taste but the colour is so fantastic on Sonja, the odd shape hardly matters.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit eschewed a hat once again, opting to repeat her gold headband. To tie in with her black accessories, she wove the headband with a black velvet ribbon that extended at the bottom to wrap around the base of her low ponytail. This integration of headpiece and hairstyle gets bonus points from me… but that doesn’t negate the sad fact that once again, she wore a headband to one of the biggest millinery events of the Norwegian royal year. Hop over to this post to see the other four ways she has worn this headband in the past.
