You have to hand it to a Princess who goes the distance when it comes to making children smile.
This is exactly what Princess Madeleine of Sweden did last week, when she hosted a tea party for Swedish Charity, My Special Day (Min Stora Dag), which helps to make dreams come true for children with serious illnesses.
As patron of the charity, Madeleine and her daughter, Princess Leonore, invited twelve children, ranging from ages 5-8, to the palace for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The party goers were treated to juice, cookies and cake, as well as a performance by Tobbe Wizard.
Any woman who puts her royal wears to good use gets an A+ in my book. Madeleine donned a fairytale gown, over which displayed her royal order medals and sash, and – the most important part of the look – a tiara.
The Court Jeweller told me that Madeleine had selected the Aquamarine Kokoshnik, which belongs to HRH’s aunt, Princess Margaretha, paired with matching earrings.
Madeleine first wore the outfit to the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize banquet back in December.
Other Royal Families, take note: Princess parties IRL are a thing, especially if they’re put on for a good cause.
Also, a happy birthday to Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill’s daughter, Leonore, who turned 2 on February 20th.
I support any gal – royal or not – who dances to the beat of her own drum.
