The Swedish Royal Family welcomed Portugese President Aníbal Cavaco Silva and Mrs. Silva on a three day state visit to Sweden today. Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel welcomed them at the airport; Princess Victoria repeated the black beret we saw just a few days ago at the opening of Swedish Parliament.

Mrs. Silva wore my favourite hat of the day, a cornflower blue wool pillbox with coordinating net trim. I thought this hat worked very nicely with her haircut and the placement was perfect (neither too far forward nor too far back, as we often see with pillbox hats). Queen Silvia repeated a large bow fascinator in chocolate and tan straw. While I am a fan of the fascinator, I think I prefer Silvia in more traditional hat shapes.
Queen Silvia’s hat designer: unknown
