Love Mary's outfit. Didn't she wear that to an airport welcoming ceremony during a State Visit in the past year? I do have to say -- she looks a bit tired. She has had a rather hectic schedule this week -- to Africa and back within a few days and then to a few events in Denmark. That's a lot of travel and prep!

I'm just thankful that Victoria covered up that hideous dress with a coat. What was she thinking?

Madeleine looks divine in that soft pink .. adore her hat! Credit to Sofia for even getting dressed just a week after giving birth.

It looked a tiiiny bit better with the coat on...

From Expressen:

"There is a closed private gala dinner where the speeches will probably remain secret for a while. Then after dinner, the guests are transferred into the White Sea, the banquet room. There will be an ABBA show with the gang from Tyrol for about an hour and a half. Then at 1 am roughly, a DJ playing. the king has told staff that no music will stop playing before 05:00 ".

I seem to remember each of the Swedish King's children had wedding celebrations which lasted all night, too. :D
