Sweden's Princess Sofia continued her turn as one of the world's most effortlessly glamorous royals in an embellished maxi skirt straight off the runway,
Sofia (née Hellqvist), a former model and reality star, and husband Prince Carl Philip looks as if they've stepped off the pages of Vogue at any given moment and the new mother is bringing her signature personal style as she dips her toe back into royal work since giving birth to her second child.
The 33-year-old was guest of honour at the UNDP's Spring Gala in Stockholm on Tuesday, choosing a dramatic 3D floral skirt by Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt paired with a simple black round neck top and a peek a colour with a pair of patent teal heels.
Sofia took a break from her public duties after welcoming little Prince Gabriel in September and has made a handful of appearances since the start of the year, mostly without her husband in a bid to establish herself in a more independent role within the Swedish royals.
The couple wed in 2015 after six years together. When asked about the difficulties of caring for two children under two, she told Swedish magazine Kupé: "We try to create as much family time as possible in the evenings, with bathing and getting into a nighttime routine. Gabriel has started sleeping and eating more regularly.
"We do get glimpses that it’s going to be tougher with two than with one. But there is also twice as much love."
When asked if the toughest part was over, she said: "Ask me again in a few months."
Her husband echoed her sweet sentiments, saying: "Gabriel and Alexander are still so small, but it’s so exciting to follow their development. It’s great to be part of their journey."
