Well the long awaited day is here- it is Victoriadagen 2017! And this year is extra special as it is the Crown Princess's 40th Birthday. To mark the day, the family attended a Te Deum (Thanksgiving Service) at Stockholm Palace Church this morning afterwards a reception is being hosted at Logården.
Following this reception there will be a cortege with the Crown Princess Family through the streets of Stockholm. In the evening the entire family will be in Öland for the annual Victoriadagen Concert.
This morning at the Te Deum, the entire royal family (including all 5 grandchildren) were in attendance. First to arrive was Princess Madeleine and her family.
Behind them was Prince Carl Philip and his family. (no worries we will discuss this confusing outfit later)
Followed by the King and Queen who looked extremely happy on this occasion.
And finally the star of the day, Crown Princess Victoria and her family. (Although some may beg to differ on who is this family of 4 is really the star of the show.... cough cough Estelle and Oscar cough cough...)
Princess Madeleine wore a dress from Erdem and a coordinating Philip Treacy hat. Princess Marie of Denmark wore the exact same dress last month so this was a easy piece to identify! She wore new patent leather baby blue pumps, but we are waiting on better photos to confirm the designer.
Princess Sofia carried her Dolce & Gabbana Mini Sicily Handbag and Crown Princess Victoria wore her white Gianvito Rossi Pumps. UPDATE: According to Svenskdam, Crown Princess Victoria is wearing Pär Engsheden. This explains why we couldn't identify it! (He has no online presence and no means of contacting him available to the public). Princess Sofia's pumps are from her favorite brand, Stinaa.J and her dress comes from Ida Lanto. Ida Lanto seems to be her go-to, custom pregnancy dress designer. I emailed them this morning because I had a feeling that it came from them but they have jet to reply with any more details about it. UPDATE: Princess Sofia's stunning new pearl earrings come from the Swedish-American brand In2Design and are their Baroque Diamond Earrings.
Prince Oscar wore the same outfit that Prince Nicolas wore to Prince Oscar's christening- which just about confirms my theory that it is an old family piece, probably Prince Carl Philip's.
Princess Leonore wore a dress from Marie-Chantal and Prince Alexander's vest and shorts come from Mayoral. (Thanks Princess Estelle's Attire and Mode För de Små) Prince Oscar and Prince Alexander's shoes come from Gallucci, the same style that we have seen Prince Nicolas wear to Prince Alexander's Christening. Princess Leonore and Princess Nicolas both wore pairs of shoes from Papouelli.
Remember to check back later for more information, pictures, and identifications! While you wait, why don't you head over to our sister site and enter the awesome giveaway we have taking place!
This evening the family attended the annual Victoriadagen concert in Öland.
Everyone from Estelle and older were in attendance and the night was full of lots of sweet moments as well as a few that had the entire royal family laughing.
You can watch the concert here and while you are at it- check out to the interview that the Crown Princess did as well. For fashion, we don't have as many outfits as we did this morning, so this shouldn't be too long! Princess Madeleine wore a new dress from Zimmermann with which she wore a new pair of earrings and pulled out her Valentino wedges. She was last seen wearing these wedges in the interview that she and Chris did at Solliden in July 2013.
Princess Estelle wore a light pink coat over a dress that used to belong to her mother and aunt (we've seen her in this dress a number of times). Her shoes as the same ones from Livly that she wore this morning. Crown Princess Victoria and Queen Silvia wore the Öland Folk Dress, as they do every year on this occasion. Don't forget that we will be back tomorrow for the meet and greet at Solliden! Until then, I am going to catch up on some sleep and I leave you with this sweet photo of little Estelle and Victoria!
