In the evening, King Carl Gustaf (in the Grand Order of Mugunghwa) and Queen Silvia (in the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara and the Order of Diplomatic Service Merit) hosted a State Banquet in honour of President Moon Jae-In and First Lady Kim Jung-sook at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. They processed down the media corridor and received guests before the Banquet. Both the King and President gave speeches. Crown Princess Victoria (wearing the Baden Fringe Tiara), Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia (in her Wedding Tiara), Princess Madeleine (wearing the Modern Fringe Tiara), and Chris O’Neill were also present. The President got the Order of the Seraphim, while the First Lady wore the Order of the Polar Star.



One thought on “South Korean State Visit to Sweden

  1. The Swedish Royal family was out in full force for this visit and looking very excellent, all of them. Even Princess Madeline and Chris O’Neil were there! The Queen and the First Lady of Korea were so well coordinated at the banquet. Judging by them, it looked as if both countries were in synchronization- which I guess is the whole idea behind a state visit. I wonder if Queen Silvia and the First Lady spoke in French with each other. They seemed to be speaking to each other very animatedly.
