Sofia Hellqvist, or Princess Sofia of Sweden, looked elegant as she along with her husband, Prince Carl Philip, made their first official public appearance as husband and wife on Tuesday. The occasion was the 38th birthday celebrations of Crown Princess Victoria, elder sister of Carl Philip. In keeping with tradition, the Swedish royals traveled to their official summer residence of Solliden Palace on the island of Ӧland, where they usually mark Victoria’s birthday, according to Hello.
Carl Philip looked dashing in a striped grey suit and matching trousers. He paired his formal look with a crisp white shirt, navy tie and a white pocket square. Black lace-up shoes, wedding ring and a gold watch completed his look.
Sofia glowed in a monochrome ensemble. The 30-year-old’s simple outfit consisted of a white sleeveless top in brocade with floral embellishments. She paired the top with a black knee-length skirt, which showed off her enviable legs.
When there was a nip in the air, the newly minted princess covered up with a black-and-white Moncler jacket. She kept her accessories simple with studs and a few thin bangles. Sofia completed her look with black strappy high heel sandals.
The young royal’s long glossy brunette tresses were styled in a side part and pulled back into a low ponytail. The couple looked happy after recently returning from their Fiji honeymoon. The bride and groom have since begun their lives as husband and wife.
Princess Madeleine was a picture of happiness after giving birth to a baby boy in June, just days after her brother’s wedding. She was glowing in a cream top and jacket and light yellow patterned trousers as she held a pretty bouquet and sat alongside her husband, banker Chris O’Neill. Her long blonde hair was left loose over her shoulders with a side part and clip on one side.
Meanwhile, the birthday girl was joined not only by her siblings, but her husband Prince Daniel and their 3-year-old daughter, Princess Estelle. Her parents, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, were also there for the festivities. Members of the public gathered outside the palace with gifts and cards for Victoria, who greeted them.
