After all, it is quite a couple of days ago the celebration of King Carl Gustav of Sweden celebrated his 70th birthday. Time has not been on my side until now. I have followed the events closely and are now ready to share everything with you.
Royals from all over the world, were gathered in Sweden to celebrate the kind. From the Danish royal family attended Queen Margrethe, the Crown Prince couple and Princess Benedikte. All of them stayed at Dannebrog, which docked the previous day before the big celebration. From what I know, the Crown Prince couple didn't arrived along with the Queen and her sister. Nevertheless, the couple were in a great mood meeting the press on the red carpet. The couple stood first raw to congratulate the swedish king on his birthday, who arrived along with his beautiful wife Queen Silvia. They really seem to have a great time accompanied by, among others Princess Märtha Louise and Princess Benedikte. The swedish people's celebration was followed by a lunch for friends and family at the town hall in Stockholm. Maybe you even watched it all on TV? When I searched for pictures, I discovered a wonderful moment of the Crown Princess and Princess Estelle (daughter of Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel), which was caught on camera. The Crown Princess asked for a picture of her and her goddaughter. Prince Daniel captured the moment. Pictures of her, Crown Princess Victoria, little Prince Oscar and Crown Prince Frederik were also captured on her phone. Couple of days ago, a picture of Prince Daniel, Crown Princess Mary and Jan-Ove Waldner appeared online, here. A day where many new memories were created and captured to remember in the future.

Already from the morning I think we have seen some incredible outfits. Lots of pastel colors. Mary really also impressed me with what she was wearing. Nothing says fashionable, as the right coat. Despite we have seen the exact same outfit at a previous event, when the king and queen of the Netherlands visited Denmark back in 2015, here, I love everything about her look. She rocked it all over again. The wonderful caramel coat is an Oscar de la Renta design and matched everything else perfectly. Surprisingly, Mary didn't wear anything pastel as most of the other invited royal ladies. We never know what to expect from her. A little pastel color would have matched the white Prada (collection: RTW SS15) dress very much. The dress features some great details - red stitching. Love to have seen the dress without the coat for just a minute. With accessory and all I get a 50s vibe, when looking at her outfit. Especially, because of the purple Jane Taylor hat featuring feathers and rhinestones. She embrace the style by wearing purple leather gloves, a Carlend Copenhagen clutch and Christian Louboutin pumps. She even wore a few diamond jewellery and a large brooch. Everything just looked absolutely great.

Before attending the gala dinner at the royal palace in Stockholm the Danish royal family members spend some time on their on at Dannebrog. Probably getting ready for the dinner. At dinner time, the four royals went off board and was met by the most incredible sunny weather. The sun almost kissed their faces. Royalty from both Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium etc. arrived one by one, as well as the royal guests from Denmark. They were all warmly welcomed by the host himself. I haven't been able to find any pictures from inside the palace, but that is probably not etiquette in Sweden. I don't know for sure. We only have pictures from the arrival and welcoming. From everything I have been able to find out, then the Danish royal couple really enjoyed themselves during the evening at the royal palace in Sweden. Bet a fine dinner was served as well as good wine.

Personally, I am always very excited to see what everybody are wearing for a dinner like this. Both Crown Princess Victoria and her sister Princess Madeleine are always beautifully dressed. Non of them are afraid of trying something new and often wears marvelous evening gowns. At the dinner the two royal sisters wore smashing gowns from Elise Saab. And Princess Märtha Louise's gown was stunning with the one should cap sleeve and rather long train. Queen Mathilda of Belgium also wore a magnificent purple gown. I could go on for hours about these dresses. The press announced Queen of the night and to me that can be no-one else than Mary in unexpected floral gown. She wore the most wonderful silk organza gown created by YDE Copenhagen (collection: SS15). The dress features a peplum and cap sleeves, not to mention the beautiful floral print. Anyone who told Mary that this years biggest trend is yellow? She matched this new floral dream with suede Gianvito Rossi pumps and her Yves Saint Laurent clutch. All in yellow. After staring at her dress for about an hour, I came to the conclusion that both hairpiece, earrings and ring are all new and created by one of the most talented jewellery designer we have in Denmark Charlotte Lynggaard from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

The following day on May 1st, the Crown Prince couple left Stockholm in the morning to fly back to Denmark after a magnificent birthday celebration for King Carl Gustaf on behalf of his 70th birthday. The couple had spend the night at Dannebrog, as Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte did. Casual dressed and in a great mood, the two of them left the royal yacht. The Crown Princess was wearing her lovely white Temperley London turtleneck sweater and a pair of shades. Her husband impressed in a simple white shirt, a blazer and a blue scarf.
