Swedish royal ladies at the 2016 Swedish Royal Family summer photocall

We are taking a look back to the 2016 summer photo session of the Swedish Royal Family at Solliden Palace. The session came as a surprise to most as it was not announced ahead of time. It took place the day after Crown Princess Victoria's birthday (b. July 14, 1977) on July 15. 

For the photocall, Sarah discovered that Madeleine wore a blue, sleeveless, high-necked, printed Valentino silk blouse.  She accompanied it with wedges from Vince. 

Crown Princess Victoria wore a skirt from Swedish retailer H&M and wedges from Spanish clothing retailer Zara. For jewelry, she wore a gold Dulong Luna necklace and Dulong Kharisma earrings. Heaven and Laura found that the Crown Princess wore a top by Tiger of Sweden. 

Princess Sofia was in a blue top by Etolie Isabel Marant, according to Laura. She also wore a white version of her Castaner wedges that she had previously been seen in at Victoria's birthday celebrations. Sofia was also wearing her green Project Playground bracelet.

Princess Estelle was pictured sitting in between her grandparents, while her mother held her baby brother, Prince Oscar. Princess Sofia held Prince Alexander, who seemed to be asleep for part of the session. Little Prince Nicolas, according to his mom, was quite tired and eventually began to cry. Princess Leonore was none too thrilled with the photo session. She wanted to run around and play causing her family to chase her down. She did finally pose for photos in her mother's arms. You can see these in the video from Expressen below. 

The Swedish Royal Family did not release any of the photos themselves outside of a collage they posted to their official Instagram.
