Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary arrives to the Royal Chapel, Stockholm

So a few days late I'm not ready to give you a complete post from the big christening in Sweden on Friday taking place in the Royal Chapel, Stockholm. It all began at 12:00 pm. local time, my guess is that the Crown Prince Couple arrived to Sweden a few hours before. I haven't really been able to find out exactly when or if they flew or not -my guess is that they did. The couple were welcomed at Swedish royal palace informally not quite ready to attend the christening yet. But they both seemed very happy.

Of course is the arrival not as exciting as the christening taken place a few hours later, not even close to but still I'm pretty interesting in Mary's outfit. Now and then we get to see these pictures taken at their arrival especially are they interesting when they arrive for something like a christening or a wedding because most often Mary is dressed a little different, a little more informal of course I tend to day and the fact that we get to see her hair without any hats or huge feathers hiding it. That is exactly what we did. Arriving to the Swedish royal palace she was dressed in slim trousers and a matching navy blue coat. Unfortunately we only get to see her from behind. As the classy lady she is, she accessorized it with a pair of lovely brown pumps and her caramel Ralph Lauren bag we can only dream of. I just love what I see. Don't you? A shame we did not get a clearer picture of her outfit

Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary attends the christening in the Royal Chapel

Shortly before 12:00 pm. local time, all guests started arriving to the royal chapel in Stockholm, Sweden, to attend the first of two christenings this year. It was time for Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel to christen their second child, a son by the name Prince Oscar that looks just like his older sister (!). Guests from near and far were all gathered to celebrate this little fellow who was born in March. Of course attended the Danish Crown Prince Couple as close friends, and family, in the christening. Also because Frederik has been chosen to become Prince Oscar's godfather along with Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, Princess Madeleine of Sweden (his aunt), Oscar Magnuson (Victoria's cousin) and Hans Åström (Daniel's cousin). As Frederik is now godfather of Prince Oscar, Mary is the godmother for his sister Princess Estelle. Because of this was Mary accompanied by Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and Frederik went with Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway. All four of them seemed really to enjoy each others company. In first row Mary followed the christening next to handsome Crown Prince Haakon who was sitting right next to Prince Carl Philip and his wife Princess Sofia. I don't think you get a better seat than this one. During the christening, the godparents delivered a reading and as a sign of blessing, held their hands above the little Prince. All traditions we do not see at a christening in Denmark. It usual, I think it was a true pleasure watching the ceremony which was followed by a reception and lunch in which the Crown Prince Couple also attended.

Breathtaking as always Mary stunned most of the world's fashion passioned royalists with her edgy  look. It was truly a remarkable outfit. If you adore Mary's usual looks you weren't disappointed by what she wore on Friday at the christening in Stockholm. Right away I thought of Queen Máxima of the Netherlands because of the wide brimmed hat and simple but impressively stylish dress. Because her outfit reminded me so much of something Queen Máxima would wear I immediately started searching the new dress at some of her usual designers or designers matching her style - Natan, Max Mara, L.K. Bennett, Ted Baker etc. Think I tried 25-30 different designers without a single similar design at all. Meanwhile I was in contact with a good friend of mine and we shared thoughts but still, we didn't find a thing. Then suddenly she, Kate, shared with me a dress with a similar print, which I still can't describe (floral?) from Max Mara (Max Mara Elegante). Shortly after she found gold, because Mary's new dress is in fact from Max Mara!! Simply dazzling. As the dress, she wore a lovely black Susanne Juul hat featuring a huge creamy white flower. Both earrings, one of the two bracelets and the ring featuring a black pearl are from talented Dulong Fine Jewelry (former known under the name Marianne Dulong) and with a pair of black pointed pumps from Gianvito Rossi she just amazed me! In the same style as the rest of her outfit she wore a checkered clutch, seen at a few events before this one, but I have never been able to identify it. I once found a similar one at Prada but this has no logo. What's your thoughts? The rather monochrome outfit she spiced up with a grouch of coral nail polish as well as a matching lipgloss. Seriously, what is not to love about it?

As guests I have to make a short comment on a few women that really impressed me:

Princess Sofia's outfit, because *** she looked like a princess! I'm so impressed by the dress she wore, it looks so good on her. It embraces her beautiful figure and gives her a special glove because of the blue colour.

Princess Madeleine because of her chose with the powder pink dress featuring the most incredible sleeves I have ever seen. Gorgeous looking was she wearing that huge flower in her hair.
