What an odd combination, not two things I would typically put together: Christmas Trees and a Democracy- but combinations like this must become the norm when you are apart of the Swedish Royal Family (or write about them).
Today King Carl XVI Gustaf and Crown Princess Victoria attended a seminar, Rösträttens århundrade" (The Century of Voting Right) at Riksdag. These seminars celebrate the breakthrough of Democracy in Sweden. Two newly written anthologies were presented and two exhibitions were opened.
The King and Crown Princess were welcomed by Speaker Andreas Norlén who also then initiated the seminar with a speech. The conference was then led by moderator Cecilia Garme alongside the anthology, Century of the Voting Right, editors. The seminar also saw Professors Christina Florin, Fia Sundevall, Jan Teorell, and Lena Wängnerud and Lecturer Ulrika Holgersson talk about the history, struggles, and future of democracy.
Crown Princess Victoria wore a red jacket from Pär Engsheden, first seen with a matching skirt at Prince Gabriel’s christening. She paired it with a new white blouse from Baum und Pferdgarten - featuring pearl buttons and lace details on the sleeves. She wore a black pencil skirt and black pumps (likely Gianvito Rossi). She finished the outfit with her Balmain x H&M clutch and Dulong earrings.
Prince Carl Philip received the annual Christmas Tree’s at the palace today bringing along his “little elf” to help.
Prince Alexander looked to be in high spirits as he helped his father Receive the trees from the students of the forestry studies program at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. This is a yearly tradition for the Royal family and something that the little Prince and Princesses of Sweden are no stranger to. It has become a tradition for the students to bring small trees each year, especially for the children.
