Bejeweled Anniversary Portraits for Victoria and Daniel

Elisabeth Toll, The Royal Court of Sweden

We're not the only ones celebrating Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden's tenth wedding anniversary! Last week, the Swedish royal court issued a series of new portraits to mark the occasion, including some seriously bejeweled images! (Note: you should be able to enlarge each of these significantly by clicking on them!)

In this gorgeous portrait, the couple's gala attire is a fun contrast with the bucolic setting of their home, Haga Palace. Here, Victoria wears the Baden Fringe Tiara with the Diamond Epaulette Earrings and the Diamond Lozenge Brooch.

Victoria wore modern earrings with a stunning Frida Jonsvens gown for this portrait.

More portraits were taken inside Gustaf III's Pavilion on the Haga Palace grounds. The eighteenth-century building provided a suitably grand backdrop for the images.

Here, Victoria wears even more heirloom jewels from the Bernadotte vaults, including the Connaught Diamond Tiara, the Vasa Earrings, and the Diamond Rose Brooch.

You'll also note, of course, that she's wearing the very same Elie Saab gown that she wore for her pre-wedding gala ten years ago!

Daniel also looked dapper in gala attire for an official portrait...

...and equally dapper in business attire for another image.

Victoria also posed in a day dress for the series. She still brought out some impressive jewels, though, including a pair of the family's diamond and pearl drop earrings, as well as a diamond and pearl ivy leaf brooch that belonged to one of her ancestors, Victoria of Baden.

One last one from the series, featuring Victoria looking very much like a future monarch. The last decade has been good to Victoria and Daniel: they're happy and healthy, with two happy and healthy children. The future of the Bernadotte family looks bright.
