Great to see both siblings there.  Smiley

A humble and respectful ceremony towards those who helped Finland in the wars despite the fact that officially Sweden refused to help them, even forbidding the British troops to travel through Sweden to assist Finland. The prime minister also forbade the newspapers to write about the work the volunteers were doing. There were about 8000 Swedish volunteers in the Winter War and 1700 in the Continuation War.

As far as I know, the royal family was always of the opinion that they should help but the government refused to do so. Vic's grandfather Gustaf Adolf wanted to help the neighbouring country by volunteering to go to fight in the Winter War but his grandfather the king forbade him.

If you're wondering where you've seen Vic's jewellery before, it's in Star Wars. The jewellery set is called Planetary Valleys and it is from a series called Space Silver.




OH WOW!!!!
Great find. Star Star

So, the Star Wars jewelry designer is Finnish? That's amazing!

It looks like the one Victoria is wearing is the smaller one, called the Galactic Peaks necklace here:

This is the larger one, Planetoid Valleys, worn by Carrie in the movie (both by the same designer, of course):

You can read about how the jewelry wound up in the movie here:

This is so cool, the fact that it was already existing and with such a space-y name as well.
As if it was preordinaed to appear in star wars!

I know, right?  The production team were probably like, "Planetoid Valleys?  Get it!"  Like I said, I had to geek out on that a bit and went looking for it when Suzerain brought it up.  I'm a big Star Wars fan.  

Anyway, the jewelry looks as amazing on the future Queen as it did on the Space Princess.

You're right! It is a different set but from the same series. Good find!  Thumb up I'd love to own anything from the series but the prices for them are ridiculously expensive. The necklace Leia wore is 2255 ? and the Darina's Bracelet she wore 625 ?. Victoria's Galactic Peaks necklace is  1885 ? and Gelo earrings 255 ?. I couldn't find any information about the massive bracelet she is wearing.

God, CP needs to cut his hair. He'd look so much better - and more mature and professional - if he did.

That posture!!  Yes







I was just noticing the same thing! Her posture is perfect!!  Thumb up   Statuesque and queenly   Jumping


I always assumed it has something to do with shaking hands, and that once you pull it off, it's too difficult to put back on...but does anyone officially know why royal women sometimes just take off the right-hand glove? I've noticed it a lot with Maxima, some Mary photos, and now above with Vikkan.

 

It's good old Knigge - you don't shake hands with the glove on, taking the one off the hand that shakes, which is 99% the right one, is showing politeness and respect.
Only exception: long evening gloves need not be removed.

^That is the posture I would expect to see on everyone (unless you have a really severe back condition). Sorry, I blame it on the military traditions in my family.  Secret My father raised me to stand up straight and behave properly, even if some people laugh at that.

Sweden is very lucky to have Victoria. She is really an excellent representative of the country, unlike certain other who we will probably see again soon...

The Star Wars geek in me loves the fact she's wearing Leia's necklace. It's a lovely piece and appropriate for the occasion.

He also needs to stop using whatever product he's using that makes it appear greasy; if no product, then he needs to take a shower and use a better shampoo and conditioner.  He's too old for that rumpled, boy-toy look.     He's really unprofessional.

Yeah, that would be pretty pricey if you wanted to get the authentic pieces for some cosplay or something, lol.  The smaller, less expensive one is more to my taste and more versatile.  It was a good choice for Victoria on this visit.

Me too.  I know I'm going to bawl at some point when I see the next film.

CG really has that 'I-hate-my-life' expression going on non-stop, such an expert at it. At least a tight smile.

Then there's Victoria making my day better.
