As one of my favorite royals, I couldn't wait to write about the id's we found of Princess Madeleine's outfit at the London Southbank Centre on Valentine's Day! Sarah found that Madeleine was in a new Vilshenko blouse. It was a combination of a cream blouse style and a pink one from the same designer. The blouse featured the short caped sleeves of the pink blouse with the design of the cream one.
The Princess, who was on her first official engagement of 2017, looked thrilled to read with the children at the "Room for Children" at the London Southbank Centre that had just opened. The room has literature from all of the Nordic countries.
She told Expressen that Princess Leonore was not big on reading, but she often finds Prince Nicolas with a book in his hand trying to read. She said, "He has always loved books! So when you can not find him, then he’s sitting with a little book himself, up and down, like he was trying to look into it. It’s very fun, so he will probably be a bookworm!”
She posted two photos on her Facebook page from the event saying, "I had so much fun today opening the “Room for Children” at the Southbank Centre in London.”
The "Room for Children" was created by the Swedish Institute and the Kulturhuset/Stadsteatern Stockholm. The Poetry Library and Embassy of Sweden in London helped in the building of the room with the help of the Nordic Embassies and Representations in London, UK. Furthermore, IKEA and Swedish publishers were of assistance.
The aim is to get children from ages 0 to 10 to read. The library will remain open throughout 2017.
This was Princess Madeleine's first official engagement in London since moving there after the birth of Prince Nicolas in 2015.
