Last September 16, 2016, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia hosted a representation dinner "Sweden Dinner" at Stockholm Palace. Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia were also in attendance where dinner was served in the White Hall. Princess Madeleine was in New York with the United Nations during this time.
For the Sverigemiddag dinner, Victoria wore an old blue Ann Sofie Back pleated creation with black Tiger of Sweden pumps. Victoria's sleeveless gown was two layered with the top layer only coming to the knee and the bottom layer to the floor. Victoria accessorized with a glittering belt around her waist. Her clutch remains UFO but our founder, Sarah, strongly suspects that it was YSL.
This dinner is held once a year since 2013 at the Palace for people in Swedish society who have contributed to the society in some way or another. The Royal Family hosts the dinner to thank them for what they have done and to learn more about their contributions to Swedish society. The dinner is formal with guests expected to wear long dresses or cocktail dresses; however it is not as formal as the Representationsmiddags held twice a year where the expensive jewels and tiaras are worn.
The guests dined on duck liver mousse with baked figs and rye bread crisps, butter-baked pike-perch with vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, and crispy red cabbage, and a dessert of blackberry mousse and yoghurt sorbet. More information and photos can be seen from the Royal Court's page here.
Additionally, Princess Sofia wore a black Kay Senchai gown. She carried a black Diane von Furstenberg clutch.
