Crown Princess Couple Remember the Estonia Disaster
Today, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel attended a memorial ceremony on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the loss of the M/S Estonia.
On 28 September 1994 the passenger ship M/S Estonia crashed on a journey from Tallinn to Stockholm. It was the largest civilian ship disaster in Europe after the Second World War with 852 people were killed, include 551 Swedes.
Today’s memorial service was held at the Estonia Monument at Galärvarv Cemetery and Royal Djurgården where many representatives from Parliament and Government, authorities and foreign missions were in place to pay their respects and remember that tragic day. The event was organized by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency MSB, which is the state's contact body for relatives and survivors of the Estonia disaster. During the ceremony, the Crown Princess couple lay a memorial wreath.
For this event, Crown Princess Victoria recycled an old purple coat (last seen on 2 November 2010) with an old white blouse. She paired this with black trousers, black af Klingberg Rakel booties and black Nancy Gonzalez clutch. She accessorized with Epoch Lady Chronograph watch and Kreuger Jewellery Amiral Oval Pearl Earrings.
