Queen Silvia and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden attended an Service yesterday morning at Uppsala Cathedral. to open meetings of the Swedish General Synod. Queen Silvia did not wear a hat but Princess Victoria went with what appears to now be her millinery uniform- hair pulled back into a chignon and topped off with a feathery/flowery fascinator. This look was in hues of pink-tinted beige (last time was white and the time before, pink again). Please don’t misunderstand me- I am happy to see Victoria in a hat for a daytime engagement (something that does not happen very often). I just would be much happier if we saw a little more variety the hats she chooses and the way she wears them.
Designer of Princess Victoria’s fascinator: unknown
Previously Worn: I suspect this piece is new
UPDATE: Reader Ruth pointed out that Queen Silvia wore a a hat yesterday afterall! This burgundy calot sat on the back of Silvia’s head and blended in quite well with her dark hair. I have a hunch in person, the hat stood out a little more and coordinated nicely with her burgundy purse and shoes.
Designer of Queen Silvia’s hat: Karin Linder

They both look lovely but I agree on the variety from Victoria! It must hurt having one’s hair so tightly coifed all the time!
They both look very nice in these photos. I like both hats! I also love Victoria’s coat (and her hair is not quite as severe as it has been lately.)
In other photos, Sylvia is wearing a burgundy or or brown topper perched on the left side of her head
Thanks, Ruth. In the first photos released, Silvia’s hat was not visible in her hair!
Thanks, Ruth. In the first photos I saw, Silvia’s hat completely blended in with her hair!
