Open Post – Swedish Royals in Australia and New Zealand (Updated Day Five)

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are on a three-day working visit in Australia. They will also tour New Zealand. Touring Victoria is always fun to follow and Australia is a great location, so let’s waste no time and dive in.

Day One

The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel’s first stop was the National Museum in Canberra. That’s a great, sharp suit on Victoria. (UFONoMore has identified it as a blazer and dress combo). It’s also a style (and color) that I wish to see on her more often. After a change of clothing, the couple took a trip to the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. Victoria’s “Adamia” blouse is by Andiata. (H/T to UFONoMore).

Brooch babes, do you suppose her friend Max lent her the insect brooch?

Later, the couple attended a dinner at Government House in Canberra. Isn’t this print fabulous for summer? This is the “slouch dress” by Toteme – you can see photos at UFONoMore.

Day Two

The royals battled the wind to plant a tree at the National Arboretum. Pussy bows and midi flow – this is a return to form for Victoria and her style. The dress is by Dea Kudibal (H/T to UFONoMore)!

It’s a good dress to take one from the Arboretum to the University, though! Victoria headed to the campus after her tree planting and fit right in.

The day capped off with a reception at the government house. Her dress is full-length floral from Acne, and it’s a re-wear from a previous Polar Music Prize outing.

Day Three

Look at these two cool kids!

Yes, it’s a day ahead in beautiful Australia, and Victoria and Dan are touring the Sydney Opera House. I’m not sure if this is an actual suit or separates, but the brooch babes among us should be happy with the appearance of another pin!

I know we have mentioned floral fatigue, particularly as it applies to Victoria, but this is a really great choice for a visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney. Be sure to click through the slideshow to see Dan in his shades and fedora.

The very happy Crown Princess and Prince Daniel headed for an evening reception at the Contemporary Art Museum in Sydney. I’ve always liked this neckline on Victoria.

Day Four

The Crown Princess is in her Zara suit for their first stop at the embassy in New Zealand. The color is described as “pumpkin” which is as apt as anything, I guess!

They continued their day with a visit to the Te Taiao exhibition.

For a visit to Parliament House the Crown Princess wore her Rotate Birger Christensen Sierina Dress, which she’s worn several times before.

Day Five

A new day; a new floral! The couple visited with the Governor General, Rt Hon Dame Cindy Kiro, and Victoria brought out a familiar style – the high necked floral midi dress. She added a white blazer for the outdoor activities, including a visit to a pōwhiri (Māori welcome) held at Waiwhetū Marae, Lower Hutton.

Oh, this sounds like a great thing to visit: Zealandia, a fenced in ecosanctuary in the center of Welllington. Obviously this a different dress; the print is different as is the neckline, but I do believe that is the same blazer.
