There’s good genes, and then there’s whatever magic the Swedish royal family possesses.
At the Nobel Prize ceremony held in Stockholm on Wednesday, the Scandinavian royals were on full display, and the Swedes were hands down the belles and beaus of the ball.
Here’s a look at who’s who among this gorgeous royal clan.
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia
King Carl, son of King Gustaf IV Adolf, wed former consulate worker Silvia Sommerlath in 1976. The pair preside over the Stockholm Royal Palace and have three beautiful children. Queen Silvia, 71, sparkled alongside King Carl, 68, at this year’s Nobel ceremony, wearing a sapphire-encrusted crown and an electric-blue embroidered gown.
Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden
The King and Queen’s eldest daughter, Victoria, 37, is first in line to inherit the throne, but she’s already received her mother’s good looks. Princess Victoria wowed at the event in a regal red strapless gown on the arm of her husband, former personal trainer Daniel Westling, 41. The two have an adorable little princess of their own, Estelle, 1.
Prince Carl Philip, Duke of Varmland
Victoria’s younger brother Carl, 35, may be runner-up in line for the throne, but he sure reigns in the looks department. The royal, who could easily be mistaken for a Hollywood actor, attended the event accompanied by his striking new fiancée, model and yoga teacher Sofia Hellqvist, 30. With his white bow tie and her embellished maroon ball gown, they made for a handsome pair, indeed.
Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland
Madeleine, 32, is the baby of the family and rounds out the trinity of siblings. After a failed engagement in 2010, she moved to New York City, where she met financier Christopher O’Neill, 40. The pair married last June, and her gown sent the bridal world aflutter. After welcoming daughter Leonore this year, Madeleine stunned again at Wednesday’s Nobel event, wearing a sheer overlay violet gown.
