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

So a few days late, it is time for us to talk about the 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 that. I haven't really been able to find out the exact time, but they were warmly welcomed at the Swedish royal palace. They arrived almost unnoticed in a black car. We rarely get to see these moment, but I love when we do. Especially, because we get a glimpse of the couple at more private event.

The arrival is not ass exciting as the christening is self, but I am still very interested in her outfit. Now and then we get to see these arrival-moment, when the couple is attending weddings and christenings. Here Mary is dressed way more casual and informal. That is something most of us like to see. Her everyday outfits are inspirational and often very easy to copy. This time we also got to see her. hairstyle before adding a huge hat, hairpins or feather ornament. Judging from what I have seen so far, I think we can except something extraordinary for the christening. Even at the arrival she was dressed in a chic pair of trousers and a matching coat. Both in the same navy blue color. Probably Mary wore a matching blouse as well, or maybe even something brown to compliment the accessories. As the classy lady she is, she accessorized it with a pair of lovely brown pumps and her caramel Ralph Lauren bag. I have never been able to identify the pumps. They look similar to something from Jimmy Choo. I'd love to see this outfit again. The combo of a rather casual outfit with that updo, is simply gorgeous.

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

Shortly before noon, all guests started arriving to the royal chapel in Stockholm 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. Guests from near and far, were all gathered to celebrate this little fellow, who was born in March. The Danish Crown Prince couple attended both as close friends and family. Also because of the fact that Crown Prince 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 the Crown Prince is now godfather of Prince Oscar; his wife is godmother for his older sister Princess Estelle. Because of this the Crown Princess was accompanied by Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and Crown Prince Frederik went with Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway. All four of them seemed really to enjoy each others company. During the christening, the godparents delivered a reading and as a sign of blessing they held hands above the little Prince.

Breathtaking as always, Mary stunned the world with her edgy christening look. Truly a remarkable outfit. Right away I thought of Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, because of the wide brimmed hat and stylish dress. Because her outfit reminded me so much of something Queen Maxima would wear, I immediately began my search for the new dress at some of Maxima's usual designers as Natan, Max Mara, L.K. Bennett etc. I probably tired about 25 different designers without a single similar design at all. Meanwhile I was in contact with a good friend of mine and we shared our thoughts. Suddenly, Kate was able to identify Mary's new floral printed dress at Max Mara (collection: Max Mara Elegante). Amazing how anyone can make something so beautiful. As the dress, she wore a lovely black Susanne Juul hat featuring a huge creamy white flower on the side.  Both earrings, one of two bracelets and the ring featuring a black pearl are from Dulong Fine Jewelry. She embraced the style with a pair of black mesh pumps from Gianvito Rossi as well. As another perfect accessory, she wore a checkered clutch. We have seen this at a couple of other occasions. Still its identity is unknown. I strongly believe it is from Prada because of a similar model, here. What do you think? She spiced up the rather monochrome with a coral nail polish and a matching lipgloss. Seriously, what is not to love?

I was also truly amazed by Princess Sofia's outfit. She impressed me in that beautiful baby blue gown, such as Princess Madeleine looked great in that powder pink dress featuring incredible sleeves. The Swedish women really know what to wear for such an event.
