The Swedish Royal Family attended a mass this morning in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm to celebrate the 40th anniversary of King Carl Gustaf’s reign. For this important event, Queen Silvia wore a new hat- a peacock blue straw classic pillbox with a small bow at the back. Silvia has a long history of wearing pillboxes and I thought the scale and colour of this one was really lovely on her.
September 15, 1973 was not only was the day that Carl Gustaf ascended the Swedish throne of Sweden- it was also the same day that Prince Daniel was born. For this double celebration, Crown Princess Victoria wore a new white rose fascinator to compliment her amazing white Chanel dress. While I prefer a less harsh hairstyle on Victoria, her overall look today was very refined and elegant.
Princess Madeleine was also in white and topped off her black and white Valentino jacket with a new pointed black callot headpiece. This hat made me scratch my own head… I thought the classic coat and dress just didn’t work with this pointy half-hat. From the side, this hat looked like a kerchief and I’m afraid it was my least favourite of the day.
The star today was, however, this family’s youngest member. Little Princess Estelle, who joined in the balcony appearance following the church service, wore a white bow in her hair. I know this does not really constitute a hat but Estelle was simply too adorable not to include in this post.
