Day 2. King Carl Gustaf's Golden Jubilee

15 September 2023

Kungl. Slottet, Stockholm

Queen Margrethe, Princess Anne-Marie and the Crown Prince Couple arrived in Stockholm the previous day to attend the grand celebration of Kin Carl Gustaf's Golden Jubilee. The Swedish king celebrate his 50th anniversary.

On Friday, they all accompanied that Swedish royal family and visited King Gustaf 6. Adolf of Sweden's memorial side in Hagaparken (here). 

Later on, the Queen, Princess Anne-Marie and the Crown Prince Couple attended a church service in Te Deum. The service was then followed by changing of the guards. The royal family watched the changing from the balcony of the royal palace.

Wauw. Mary looked soooooo beautiful when attending activities on occasion of King Carl Gustaf's Golden Jubilee on September 15th. It is the second time she wears this amazing blue printed Erdem dress. First, was when Denmark hosted an official visit from Norway earlier this year (here). Mary embraced the delicate style of the dress with a matching fascinator. 

I have never been able to identify it, but hopefully I will some day. It goes back to the coronation in the Netherlands in 2013 (here). Love its simple and elegant design.

As jewellery, Mary had chosen stunning diamond earrings once purchased at a Bruun Rasmussen auction back in 2022.

She matched the dress and fascinator with a beloved Quidam clutch, Gianvito Rossi leather pumps and what looks like a lovely blue cardigan.

Gala dinner

In the evening, friends and family were invited to attend a gala dinner at Riksalen at Kungl. Slottet (here). Both Queen Margrethe, Princess Anne-Marie, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the dinner.

King Carl Gustaf gave a welcome speech before the dinner, where he embraced his role a King of Sweden. How much it means to him to represent Sweden, his family and the Swedish people. He also took the opportunity to thank his beloved wife, Queen Silvia for spending her life with him.

If the midnight blue evening gown in fact is a reuse with alterations, I have not confirmed, but it looks a lot like another one of her gown (here). Nevertheless, her gown worn at the gala dinner in Stockholm is mastered by Danish designer Lasse Spangenberg. About now, he has created quite a few dresses for her.

Mary styled her evening look with a very special tiara. Her wedding tiara. It was given to her by Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik. Her new parents-in-law. The story goes that her aquamarine earrings are a gift from Crown Prince Frederik. But I do not know for sure. The story is the same with the HUGE ring. 

The two diamond cuffs are made by Annikat. Love that she wore both of them. We get a glimpse of her wearing a diamond hairpin - which I believe is a brooch. I think it could be this one.

She also matched the outfit with a blue satin box clutch from Prada and satin pumps from Gianvito Rossi.

  1. Great show of tiaras and gowns. Sadly not all of the extended family of the SRF was there. Like the Saxe Coburg Gotha. It is always nice to dee the Royals out and about.
