I love National Day, and I love the new photo of Estelle and Oscar.
I hope Madeleine brings Leo to the concert later as well as Estelle. I'm hoping we get to see all of the kids on Friday at the Christening!
Yes, I've also often wished that the Swedish males in the RF would also participate in the dressing up in traditional costumes as well. Perhaps they did years ago and the tradition just died out with CG.
I think they should dress up in the regional costumes from their duchies instead of the generic (and AFAIK newer) "made up" Swedish costume.
I agree with this as well; I think it would be far more interesting.
Yes this would be a fun idea, although it would leave Silvia still wearing that same generic dress as the wife of the Monarch and thus representing all of Sweden (plus CG isn't technically Duke of Jämtland anymore is he? I'm genuinely unsure since technically isn't HM still Duchess of Edinburgh?)
CG's Duchy title was returned to the Crown when he became King.
I don't see why Silvia couldn't wear the new National costume that she designed. Out of any of them, she would be the most appropriate to wear it.
Once HM became Queen, she was no longer The Duchess of Edinburgh as she became The Duke of Lancaster. She is also known as the Lord of Mann and Duke of Normandy in other areas.
