One thought on “Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Sweden- Day 2

  1. Hmmmm…..I’m liking more their morning outfits that their evening wear during this visit. It seems like CP Victoria didn’t get the memo for dinner. Everyone is in blue except for her! The two gentlemen appear as if they bought the same suit in the single and double breasted versions. 🙂 I think maybe CP Victoria needs to reconsider her footwear for the evening. Those booties!!! But I must say she looked marvelous in her mint pantsuit and peach coat in the morning!
