Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden welcomed a healthy baby boy yesterday. The birth of Prince Oscar Carl Olof was celebrated this morning with a traditional Te Deum mass in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. For this event, Queen Silvia wore a royal blue suit topped with a black straw headpiece that circled round the crown of her head. While I’m not a fan of open crown pieces, this headpiece looks great on Silvia (from the front!) and was an excellent compliment to her patterned suit.
While Princess Madeleine did not wear a hat, Princess Sofia topped her grey dress with a new coordinating calot trimmed with floral lace appliqué and a birdcage veil, designed by Malinda Damgaard. The colour contrast is lovely against Sofia’s dark hair and made for a very polished ensemble.
Countess Maryanne Bernadotte (below, far right) wore an ecru hat with cuff brim and tulle net veil trim. This hat seems a little slouchy and informal from far away but I’ll reserve full judgement until we can get a closer look.
Prince Daniel’s mother and sister both wore neutral toned fascinators. I can’t imagine it is easy for non-royals to dress for shared-family royal occasions such as this and these pieces fit the bill.
Undoubtedly, this was a happy celebration for the family and I’m sure you’ll all join me in extending heartfelt congratulations to Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel and big sister Princess Estelle on the safe arrival of the wee prince.
