We wrap up our look at the hats and headpieces yesterday at the christening of Princess Adrienne with those worn by members of the extended Swedish royal family. While Princess Margaretha and Princess Désirée did not wear hats or headpieces to this event, Princess Birgitta wore a white silk rose tucked behind her right ear. Previously worn for Princess Victoria’s 40th birthday celebrations last summer, the hair decoration coordinated nicely on this outing with Birgitta’s lace dress and pearl earrings.
Princess Désirée’s daughter, Hélène Silfverschiöld, topped her navy dress and coat with a pink straw hat with ruched hatband around the rounded crown and downward brim finished with a short, upturned kettle edge.
Princess Christina wore a folded headpiece in ecru metallic straw, trimmed with quills and a bow at the back. I adore that this youngest Haga princess consistently brings out statement headpieces for these types of Swedish royal events and thought the piece was wonderful on her. The metallic sheen on this piece pairs so beautifully with her pearls and dress- while all the pieces are in similar oyster hues, the mix of textures and sheen brings them together in such an interesting way.
Vicky Magnuson topped her pink lace dress with a small cocktail hat with teardrop shaped base, trimmed with straw leaves and crin bows.
Countess Jill Bernadotte of Wisborg (her husband Count Bertil is a grandson of Prince Oscar Bernadotte through his son Folke), wore a headpiece of layered navy folded crin bows, trimmed with navy rosettes and feathers.
And finally, Countess Marianne Bernadotte af Wisborg (widow of the king’s late uncle Sigvard Bernadotte), wore a navy silk JosefineThelin designed navy silk rosette bandeau with a dotted tulle birdcage veil. The bandeau is a lovely, summery pairing for Marianne’s lace dress and jacket
