A Visit to Vivat Regina

On February 22, Crown Princess Victoria and her two children Prince Oscar (nearly 2) and Princess Estelle (6) visited the exhibition "Vivat Regina" or "Long live the Queen" at Storkyrkan. The exhibit is a collaboration between the Swedish Church and the Royal Armoury. The Crown Princess and her two children were shown around by their personal guide, the chaplain of Stockholm cathedral Ulf Lindgren.

The exhibition displays the national treasures and Jewels which were used at the crowning of Queen Christina in 1650. Queen Christina was a unique monarch. She became Queen at the age of six but only started her reign when she turned 18. She was Queen of Sweden from 1644 until her abdication in 1654. Indeed, Queen Christina abdicated and converted herself to Roman Catholicism. She also decided not to marry and was one of the most educated women of the 1600s.

Especially Princess Estelle seemed rather interested in the exhibition. She was pictured taking a very close look at the displayed items and even tried to play the organ under the watchful eye of her mother. The visit to the exhibition was unannounced and without any media attention so that the Crown Princess and her children were able to enjoy the display quietly.

For this visit, Crown Princess Victoria wore her favorite Max Mara Manuela Coat (still avaliable) with a black turtleneck and new Valentino Fringe Rockstud boots (Found by Heaven). Princess Estelle was dressed in a pink cableknit sweater (designer unknown) and her Pom D'Api boots. Prince Oscar wore a sweater from Jacadi and shoes from Superfit. Huge thanks to Princess Estelle's Attire for keeping me in the loop with these finds!
