Dinner at Haga, Diplomatic Reception, and Future Plans
On Tuesday evening, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel hosted a dinner at Haga Palace in Stockholm for partner of the Crown Princess Couple’s Foundation. Previously in the day the couple had held a board meeting for their foundation at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. One organization who was in attendance was Changers Hub who were able to share about how the Foundation’s contribution helps to make the organization’s vision of “Democratizing Success” a reality.
On Wednesday, it was Princess Leonore’s 5th birthday. The court celebrated by sharing a photo taken by Princess Madeleine on their various platforms. Princess Leonore celebrated with her family, who currently reside in Miami, Florida
Also on Wednesday, Crown Princess Victoria joined her parents, the King and Queen, for a diplomatic reception held at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. A few times a year, the newly appointed ambassadors are given the opportunity to meet with the King and Queen at a reception held at the Royal Palace. This is not the first time that the ambassadors meet the King however, as they meet him when they hand over their official credentials in the solemn audiences. These diplomatic receptions, like the one held on Thursday, are less for the ambassadors to meet the royal family and more for them to meet one another and representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This diplomatic reception included ambassadors from Qatar, Albania, Japan, New Zealand, North Korea, Sri Lanka, and Brazil.
Finally on Friday, Prince Carl Philip shared, using the couple’s public Instagram, that he would be taking time off from car racing in 2019 to focus on his family. He said he looks forward to returning to the race track in 2020.
For these array of events, various new and old fashion pieces were seen. For the dinner at Haga Palace on Tuesday, Crown Princess Victoria wore a Zadig et Voltaire dress first seen last year with black pumps (likely from Gianvito Rossi). For the Diplomatic Reception on Wednesday, Crown Princess Victoria wore a new dress from & Other Stories and black pumps (again likely Gianvito Rossi).
