Tiara Time! See the Swedish Royals Wow in Stunning Headpieces for State Banquet
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle aren't the only royals who know how to rock a tiara
The Swedish royals dipped into their jewelry vault on Tuesday for a state banquet at the Royal Palace in Stockholm held in honor of president of Italy’s visit.
Crown Princess Victoria stunned in a green gown topped with the Six-Button Tiara, an accessory made up of diamond rosettes that is a favorite Princess Christina, King Carl XVI Gustaf’s sister. Victoria and husband Prince Daniel also sported matching green and red sashes.
Princess Sofia joined husband Prince Carl Philip sporting the tiara she previously wore on their wedding day in 2015 — with a twist. Although the sparkler, a gift from the King and Queen Silvia, was topped with emeralds for her walk down the aisle, Sofia has replaced the emeralds with pearls. She also gave off wedding vibes at the banquet with her white floor-length dress with three-quarter length sleeves.
Queen Silvia accompanied Italian president Sergio Mattarella into the banquet wearing a purple gown and her Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara. The piece, a wedding gift from Napoleon to his step-daughter-in-law, Princess Augusta of Bavaria, has been worn by all queens of Sweden since Queen Victoria.
President Mattarella is on a three-day visit, during which he’ll visit Stockholm and Skåne.
