RIGHT NOW: The royal family arrives for the gala dinner – see the pictures here!

The dresses, the jewels and the guests – what an evening it is at the Royal Palace! And it is Victoria and Queen Silvia who dazzle the most.

Tonight there is a big royal party at Stockholm Castle. It is King and Queen Silvia who give a gala dinner – or state banquet as it is also called – in honor of King Felipe and Queen Letizia.

And it’s full pot in royalty! Both Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, and Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, are present.

Queen Letizia is Spanish dramatic in a dress with sleeveless waist and the evening’s biggest skirt. But it is still Crown Princess Victoria and Queen Silvia who knock everyone out!

Victoria in flower embroidered tulle and Queen Silvia in gold from head to toe. And she wears the comedy diadem! It may actually be the first time it has been seen since the Crown Princess wore it at her wedding.

The guests started arriving shortly after 19.00, but the state visit dinners are always extra late (and extra nice) and never start until 20.00.

So the guests – who tonight are only 90 in number, instead of the usual 150 – had time to buzz around for a good while. There were no handshakes, but it was very hearty anyway!

One of the main characters in the political drama that has taken place during the day also slipped in: the Center Party’s party leader Annie Lööf, for the evening in sea green.
