On Monday evening, a little Swedish royal glamour came to New York City, thanks to a royal appearance at an annual fundraising gala.
Queen Silvia of Sweden and her younger daughter, Princess Madeleine, arrived at 583 Park Avenue in Manhattan to attend the annual World Childhood Foundation Gala. They were joined at the event by Madeleine’s husband, Christopher O’Neill.
The event raised money—almost a million dollars!—for the World Childhood Foundation, an organization founded in 1999 by Queen Silvia to inspire, promote, and develop solutions to end sexual abuse, exploitation, and violence against children. Princess Madeleine has been associated with the charity for many years as well, and in 2021, she was appointed Vice Honorary Chair of the organization.
Queen Silvia wore a glittering dark green ensemble from one of her favorite designers, Georg & Arend. We recently saw her wear the same top with a ballgown skirt for a banquet in Estonia. On that occasion, she wore a diamond tiara, but for the Childhood gala, she reached for a pair of large diamond daisy earrings.
Silvia also wore a thin diamond necklace, which was tucked inside the neckline of her top. She also pinned a small diamond brooch to her outfit, as well as a gold Childhood logo pin.
Princess Madeleine was elegant in an off-the-shoulder navy gown for the gala. UFO No More tells us that the dress was made by Chiara Boni La Petite Robe.
She accessorized with a major pair of statement hoop earrings from Swarovski. The brand’s website explains that the earrings, which come from the Millenia line, feature “dazzling triangle cut crystals in a mood-boosting yellow hue” in a gold-plated setting.
Madeleine also wore a Cartier Love Bracelet, plus a bracelet featuring looping gold script. (I can make out the letters “tid,” followed by a heart.) A diamond tennis bracelet was threaded through the letters of the script bracelet as well. And both of the royal ladies, of course, wore the signature beaded Childhood bracelet, which is sold as a fundraiser for the charity.
