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 Jennifer Berh 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.

The brimmed Garbo suits Victoria.
I liked the hats of Silvia, Victoria and Christina. I loved the headband of Sofia, simple but elegant. I am not a fan of the slim headband and veil of Martha Louise.
My deepest sympathy to the family.
I liked all the “hat” hats. Condolences to the family.
The Garbo hat really suits CPVictoria.
My thoughts are with Princess Desiree and the family.
I Iked the hats on Queen Sylvia and Princess Victoria. They were attractive and appropriate. Clearly it was a somber occasion and was very affecting for everyone. My sympathies to the family.
