Members of the Swedish royal family attended a Te Deum service of thanksgiving in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm to celebrate the safe arrival of Princess Adrienne, born to Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill last Friday morning.
For this service, Queen Silvia repeated her blue molded calot hat with feather spray at the side.

While Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Sofia and Princess Christina did not wear hats, Countess Marianne Bernadotte attended in a brown fur papakha hat and matching coat (undoubtedly pieces that have been in her wardrobe for decades).

Today was also Crown Princess Victoria’s name day; Prince Daniel and Princess Estelle joined in on celebrations (receiving a marching band, greeting royal well wishers) held in the palace courtyard. The occasion marked Princess Estelle’s formal hat debut in a navy velour tam simply trimmed with a pale blue ribbon around the cuff base perimeter. With her matching velour collar and faux fur cuffed boots, the hat topped a sweet and appropriately warm ensemble on the young princess.

Previously Worn: This hat is new
Estelle’s hat was perfect for her outfit and age. She looked so cute. I wish she could influence her mom to wear a few more hats. Fingers crossed for the Christening of little Adrienne. So, I have a question for our Swedish hat enthusiasts. Does this mean that Victoria and Adrienne will share the same name day?
Not Swedish, but: I understand your name day is the day of the saint whose name you have, e.g. the name day of someone called Michael would be September 29, St Michael’s Day. So Adrienne’s name day will be whatever day St. Adrienne is commemorated (assuming there is such a person).
Some parents save on two celebrations by naming their child after the saint whose day they’re born on.
It is an official committee that decides which name that is celebrated on a given day in Sweden. Some days are linked to saints but most are not (since the Swedish church i lutheran and do not really acknowledge saints). Where I live (southern Sweden), it is quite uncommon to celebrate your name day, it might be more common in other parts of the country.
Oh, my goodness! Princess Estelle is just priceless!
Hats off to Princess Estelle (and/or whoever picks her clothes) – an excellent and appropriate ensemble. That hat looks so cosy!
Princess Estelle is simply adorable. I love her hat. Queen SIlvia is her usual elegant self.
GG: Hat pickin’s were slim at best today, for sure. I think Princess Estelle stole the millinery show, no doubt! The 3rd picture of her was great, from head to toes!
