One thought on “Icelandic State Visit to Sweden

  1. Everybody looked very nice, including the First Lady of Iceland. Queen Silvia wore the Leuchtenberg parure and Princess Sofia wore her wedding tiara in the pearl configuration (which is quite an improvement over the original), but I’m wondering about CP Victoria. She must be really sick to miss work like this. I hope she recovers soon! BTW, the gentlemen looked very dapper!
