Sverigemiddag 2016

The King and Queen hosted yesterday the Sverigemiddag, an official dinner for invited guests who gave a particular contribution in their areas, such as culture, business, education, sports and club activities. The tradition started in 2013 on the occasion of the King’s 40 years on the throne.

Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia were also in attendance. Madeleine was attending the same night the Second Annual World Childhood Thank You Gala in New York.

The dinner was held at the Royal Palace in the White Sea room, which you may remember was the room in which Victoria and Daniel had their wedding dinner. Here you are a look inside the room:

Victoria wore an old pleated gown from Ann-Sofie Back that she also wore for the Polar Music Prize ceremony in 2011. This time, she added a glittering belt. Let me say that, she bluehost looked amazing! The whole family was looking glamorous for the evening, more than the past years when some ladies opted for a more informal cocktail dress instead of an evening dress.
