Day 4 in New York for Victoria

Sorry for the delay- I have had a very busy week and finally had the time to sit down and write a post that did the engagement justice! 

On Thursday, Crown Princess Victoria finished her trip to New York City with another busy day of meetings. She began her day by participating in a meeting of the Sustainable Development Group Advocates and Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary General. On 21 January 2016, the Secretary General appointed Victoria as well as 16 other eminent persons to be apart of this group. Their task is to help promote the Sustainable Development Goals adopted in September 2015 and foster engagement of new stakeholders to accomplish these goals by 2030.

Victoria has been involved with Earth Sustainability for many years and is patron to many different organizations who deal with sustainability efforts in Sweden. She has accredited this interest to the King, as when she was younger he (as well as the Queen) would come home from trips and tell the children about what he had seen and learned. I think it is safe to say that these discussions the family had very much affected each of the children.

After this meeting, the Crown Princess attended an internal meeting of the Sustainable Development Goal Advocates as well as bilateral meetings with the SDG Advocates. 

For these meetings Victoria wore a new dress from Ralph Lauren, Kreuger Jewellery Poppy earrings, and Acne pumps. She carried her By Malene Birger Snakeskin Clutch.

Day 3 in New York for Victoria

Crown Princess Victoria had a busy third day in New York City attending many different conferences, talks, and debates at the United Nations General Assembly. In the morning she attended a high-level session on antimicrobial resistance which is a health threat that is growing in threat. Victoria later talked to the Swedish Delegate Leader, Gabriel Wikström, and they are arranging more meetings on the topic when they get back to Stockholm.

Victoria then had a meeting with DHO Young-Shin, the president of the UN World Tourism Agency. Following this meeting, Victoria attended Stefan Löfven's launch of the initiative Global Deal, which aims to create better working environments for the global labor market.

For this busy day, Victoria kept her hair pulled back in a ponytail and wore some old favorites. She paired an old tan shirt (unidentified but owned since 2013) with a new pair of burgundy pants. She carried her & Other Stories clutch and matched them with an old pair of burgundy suede pumps (has had them since 2013 but they may be Rizzo). She wore her Kreuger Jewellery Leather Bracelet (with pearl pendant), gold hoop earrings, and a Gold Star necklace from Sophie by Sophie. Again she also wore her Childhood Bracelet. 

Day 2 for Victoria in New York

Crown Princess Victoria spent her second day in New York by attending the opening of the 71st UN General Assembly Debate. The theme of the opening was SDG's universal push to transform the world. Afterwards she took part in the High Level Meeting Urban Food Systems: The Nutrition Challenge, which was put on by the EAT Forum. You may recall that Victoria attended the Eat Forum in Stockholm earlier this year along side Crown Princess Mette-Marit.

In the evening, Victoria attended the 2016 Global Goals for Sustainable Development Awards Dinner at Gustavino's in New York. Queen Rania of Jordan was also in attendance. 

For the opening debate of the UN General Assembly, Victoria pulled out an old favorite from her closet- an Oscar de la Renta dress first seen back in 2010! She paired it with her white Ralph Lauren bag, YSL Blue Suede pumps, and earrings and a necklace from Kreuger Jewellery. 

For the Global Change Awards Dinner, Victoria wore her Baum und Pferdgarten floral skirt which she paired with Lara Bohinc jewelry (earrings, necklace, and bracelet) and new Marchesa heels. These are the same Marchesa shoes that Madeleine owns in gold- I guess it is safe to say that the sisters have a similar taste in shoes! (I personally approve of the name of the shoes- Sarah- and I think I like them but they do remind me of zip-ties) I think it is also important to point out that Victoria is wearing a Childhood bracelet which we haven't seen her wear in sometime- if my memory serves me correctly, she wears it more often when traveling abroad than when she is at home. 

Day 1 in New York for Victoria

I apologize for the delay in posting- Real life trumps Royal Life at the moment. Post will be brief because of this. 

This week, Crown Princess Victoria is attending the UN's General Debate of the General Assembly in New York City.

For the first event, Victoria wore a new Zebra print dress from Whyred. She wore new sandals from By Malene Birger and carried the Sasha clutch from Dagmar's SS17 collection. She paired it all with her Ebba Brahe earrings which pulled the colors from the dress in beautifully. 

For her second outfit, Victoria wore the Baum und Pferdgarten top first seen in Oscar's first photos and paired it with the matching skirt. She wore her grey By Malene Birger pumps and carried her blue Valentino Rockstud bag

For the evening reception, the Crown Princess wore a custom Fadi el Khoury dress and what looks to be new earrings. 

Hopefully today's post will not be so late as this one- but real life unfortunately must come before royal life! Unless someone wants to make me a royal and in that case- I can blog on a timely manner to our hearts are content?! 

UPDATED: BUSY, BUSY DAY

Today was a very busy day for our favorite royals! This morning, Madeleine attended the UN's Panel discussion focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals with respect to Ending Children's Sexual Violence. Many of you are aware that back in 1999, Queen Silvia founded World Childhood Foundation. Childhood is a different sort of charity, instead of raising money to fund their own initiatives, they raise money to assist in funding initiatives that were already in effect.

Princess Madeleine has taken to her mother's foundation and when she lived in New York City she worked as a Project Manager. She has co-founded (alongside Karini Gustafson-Teixeria) 2 initiatives- Thank You Campaign and Eyes Wide Open. While most of the panel at the UN involved Madeleine just listening to what the various selected speakers had to say, she did have a few comments to make afterwards. You can see most of these comments on this video I posted on my Twitter page. (I videotaped my computer screen with my phone which is why the quality is not great)  This evening she will attend the second annual Thank You Gala for Childhood.

As I mentioned before, Madeleine attended the Second Annual World Childhood Thank You Gala. At tonight's program, there was an auction (including a dinner for 8 with Princess Madeleine at Marcus Samuelsson's newest Red Rooster in London which was sold for $20,000!) as well as celebrities including Andrea Bocelli, Malin Akerman, and Forest Whitaker. 

Back in Sweden, the Royal Couple, the Crown Princess Couple, and the Prince Couple joined together to hold the Sverigemiddag. This dinner is given once a year since its start in 2013. The King and Queen invite a variety of Swedes from all the counties who have made a contribution to society in some area or another. In previous year there were farmers, sports players, and leaders just to give you a few ideas of who is invited. This dinner is held to recognize their work but also to give the royal family a chance to hear about what is going on in the areas they come from. This dinner is not to be confused with Representationsmiddags which tend to be held twice a year. The Representationsmiddags are a more formal occasion where the jewels are pulled out. The Sverigemiddag is a less formal affair and there are no jewels or orders. Cocktail or long dresses may be worn and in the past the family has split it up so at least one person is wearing a short dress. I found it strange that they did not do that this year. 

Sorry for the lack of great photos- I am working with what I can find! Now because we have covered the important details of what each event is, let's move to the fashion. Starting with Princess Madeleine this morning, She wore a new white top featuring a collar with button details. If anyone has any ideas about it please pass them along! She carried her black Celine bag and wore her Dior Front-Back Pearl earrings. 

At the Sverigemiddag, Victoria wore an old blue pleated tiered dress from Ann-Sofie Back. I believe this makes the third time she has worn it, the most notable time that I can recall is when she wore it during her pregnancy with Estelle. She carried an old (unidentified but I suspect YSL) clutch, floral crystal earrings, and black heels. I have yet to see a great photo to figure out which shoes they are. Sofia wore her black Kay Senchai gown and that is all I know about her outfit! Her earrings are diamond earrings first seen earlier this year around the time of Alexander's birth, she appeared to carry a black Diane von Furstenberg clutch, and I haven't seen a photo of her shoes. 

Back in New York, Madeleine also kept with the night's theme of repeating some older pieces. She donned a silver Jenny Packham gown, which she paired with a silver Marchesa clutch and her Baroque Pearl earrings.
