Members of the Swedish royal family gathered at Erska Church near Koberg Castle yesterday in to remember the life of Baron Niclas Silfverschiöld, husband of Princess Désirée, who died April 11, 2017 following a brief illness. As is to be expected at such events, the millinery was very simple. Queen Silvia wore a tall black pillbox hat.
Crown Princess Victoria repeated her black felt Yves Stain Laurent wide brimmed Garbo hat with fringe-edged bow at the back and wide Petersham ribbon hatband.
Princess Soia wore a black velvet hair band tied trimmed with a knotted bow at the side.
Princess Christina wore a large brimmed black hat with wide, ruched fabric hatband gathered in a large black buckle. Princess Désirée and the other Haga princesses did not wear hats.
The Danish and Norwegian royal families were represented by Princess Benedikte and Princess Märtha Louise. Princess Benedikte repeated her black hat with diagonally striped, raised bumper brim.
Princess Märtha Louise looked to have borrowed Princess Mette-Marit’s veiled black headpiece with slim headband base.
I’m sure you all join me in sending our best wishes to Princess Désirée and her family during this difficult time.
