Even the handbag was glittery - Victoria of Sweden arrives at her brother's wedding
The future queen and her consort had a good day - she looked stunning, did a cracking reading and wept beautifully throughout the whole thing while Prince Daniel showed that childcare is man's business by being the only member of the Swedish Royal Family who could stop sixteen month old Princess Leonore getting grumpy as the ceremony went on in a very hot chapel.
But their mum outdid them both. Queen Silvia attended the wedding of her only son in a full length fitted mauve silk dress with a stunning tiara.
Outside of the Swedish Royal Family there were some more stunning frocks. Queen Maxima of the Netherlands looked simply amazing in a red dress worn with rubies.
Mary's sister in law, Princess Marie, went for green and while the colour was striking the design itself was rather anaemic with no stand out feature to single her out among the dozens of gala goodies on show.
Tatiana of Greece also blended into the background this time round. Her off the shoulder lace effect gown was just the right side of ice blue not to look white and rather bridal and it needed something else to make it a winner.
Nothing says royal wedding more than pale pink chiffon trousers, fur bolero and tiara. Well, that's according to Birgitta who put together an outfit so out of place in its oddness that it was compulsive viewing.
