In the evening, the Duke and the Duchess attended an event in celebration of contemporary culture at the Fotografiska Gallery. Guests included people from the film, music and television industry, theatre, dance, art and sports. The Duke delivered a speech.
The Duke and Duchess arrived by boat to the Gallery, allowing them to get a great view of Stockholm by night.
The four Royals posed for the photographers for one last time during this visit – which has been a huge success. Both royal couples seem to get along very well and I’m sure they will be able to share a lot in the future together – as both of them will one day be the King/Queen of their country.
The Gallery currently has an exhibition by the British photographer Nick Veasy. TRH toured the exhibition before joining the reception. The Duke revealed that his wife is very much into photographing their children – she is said to do so every day.
Afterwards, the Duke held a speech. The full speech can be read here.
The Royals chatted with the guests present at the reception.
The Duchess wore a blue velvet dress by Erdem and for the outside events, she wore a black coat by the Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt. Mrs. Sjöstedt is very popular with the Swedish Royals – princess Sofia, the wife of Crown Princess Victoria’s brother, even had her wedding dress designed by her. HRH accessoirised the coat with her Troy London faux fur collar and cuffs (also worn on day 1). She also wore her black Gianvito Rossi D’Orsay Pumps and sparkled with a new pair of Robinson Pelham diamond earrings.
