Princess Sophia of Sweden reused her wedding tiaras while attending a banquet at the Royal Castle in Stockholm on Tuesday 17 May. Fans of the royal family will recognize her as the showpiece she wore down the aisle to marry Prince Carl Philip in 2015, as it has the same diamond base. However, in 2017, Sophia updated the design to replace the pear-shaped emerald which is instead lined with a series of pearls.
Fashion enthusiasts noticed the tweaks at the first Nobel Prize ceremony. But during the gala – hosted by her father-in-law King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Sylvia – Sophia embraced a thorough royal moment, allowing the renewed Tiara to shine. She chose a red mermaid gown with a floor-length bell sleeve that stretched over a train. The royal pearl drop earrings, tied to the stone in its crown, reflect the shape of the band below with its diamond choker on which the pearls are set. A red envelope clutch, a brooch and the blue ribbon on her badge complete the look.
When she unveiled her first tiara (a gift from King Carl and Queen Sylvia) on her wedding day, she paired it with Swedish designer Ida Sjosted’s Bernadotte family earrings and her lace-needle, sheer-sleeved wedding gown. Today, we appreciate Sophia’s approach to reproducing her emotional part in a special occasion.
Fate, where Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel were also present, marked the first state visit between Finland and Sweden since 2015, the same year Sophia’s wedding day. Following the event, on Wednesday, May 18, the ambassadors of both countries submitted a written request to join NATO.
