New Photo: Farewell at the Palace

While doing my regular Social Media searching, I came across this undated photo of the royal family saying farewell to one of their employees who was leaving his work at the Palace.

Apparently, Christopher (the man next to the Queen) had worked at the palace for sometime and on his last day, the royal family gathered and gave him a farewell gift of a set of cufflinks engraved with the Royal Seal. This photo was shared by one of Christopher's relatives online. I would love to hear your thoughts on if you think this photo (posted on January 27th) was taken before Christmas or after. 

In this photo, Crown Princess Victoria is wearing her red Prada dress with Sophie by Sophie heart necklace and Acne pumps. Princess Sofia is wearing Rodebjer pumps, a new dress from COS (Thanks Laura!), and Bow Label Tile earrings

The Swedes are certainly taking a slow start this year with all members of the family having been on at least one vacation out of the country already. Sofia, Carl Philip, and Alexander were seen in South Africa (likely visiting Project Playground) and Victoria, Daniel and the kids were reported to have gone to the United States (Spoiler- they did NOT visit me, much to my disappointment). Madeleine and her family along with the King and Queen went skiing in the Swiss Alps shortly after the New Year. The first announced engagement for one of the children will take place this week at the Royal Palace when Sofia and Carl Philip hold a board meeting for their Prince Couple Foundation.
