This Week’s Extras

On Tuesday, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia attended the annual anniversary at the art museum Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde in Stockholm, the queen in an ivory hat with wide ruched hatband and rose on the side.
Yesterday, took part in the annual “Kungsrallyt” for older vintage cars in Borgholm, Öland, the king in a natty fedora at the wheel of his prized 1946 Volvo PV-60. Queen Silvia wore a vintage shaped straw hat with low crown and curving brim trimmed in a ring of silk wild flowers.

  1. Carl-Gustaf and Silvia make a charming picture at the auto show, although it looks from the one photo that she does not trust his driving! The ivory with the ruched band is very pretty.

    Gorgeous trilby from Louise Peacock!

  2. Hats and vintage cars: I always love seeing Carl Gustaf and Silvia at the Kungsrallyt! Carl Gustaf looks good in his panama fedora, but I’m not sold on Silvia’s platter hat; it’s a little too flat in design and the way it’s sitting on her head to be fully flattering on her IMO (although I get the vintage vibe for sure). But ultimately it’s the Volvo that wins the prize! 😉 My dad was able to show off the 1950 Ford F1 pickup truck he rebuilt himself yesterday at a local car show, although I’m certain he was only wearing a ballcap/trucker cap and T-shirt haha.

    • “Interesting,” indeed! This one should come with a trigger warning. It looks like something out of a horror film!
