But what kind of necklace was Crown Princess Victoria wearing at the royal dinner yesterday?

Yes, many have wondered!

It really stood out on her sheer chiffon dress – and it was so heavy and mammoth, and so impressive in all its glory.

But it is also not an ordinary necklace – but something many times bigger and more honorable.

Namely, Finland’s finest words: Commander of Finland’s White Rose’s words.

By all accounts, a unique gift that Crown Princess Victoria received from President Sauli Niinistö during the first day of the Finnish state visit yesterday.

However, no such chain could be seen on Princess Sofia and it has its striped reasons:

The Crown Princess is Sweden’s heir to the throne and future queen, and it is by virtue of this that the president has presented her with this unique order.

According to Svensk Dam’s experience, it is worn only by Finnish presidents and by heads of state in the Nordic countries, and it is usually handed over in connection with the person in question taking up his position as incumbent monarch or president.

But even now, President Niinistö has honored the Crown Princess in this heavy way – something that further strengthens the image of Finland’s close relationship with Sweden.

“The fact that Queen Silvia also wears the Great Cross with a chain is also unique and shows the very special bond that Finland has with Sweden in particular,” says our informant.

– President Urho Kekkonen was a true friend of Sweden and it was he who awarded her this award. And note that neither Norwegian Queen Sonja nor Queen Margrethe’s husband Prince Henrik has received it.
