What Kate Middleton Wore to a Black-Tie Dinner With the Swedish Royal Family

Following a jam-packed morning of sports and a luncheon with the Swedish royal family, Kate Middleton and Prince William are rounding out the first day of their royal tour in Sweden with a black-tie dinner at the residence of the British ambassador.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived dressed in their finest — a major departure from their attire earlier in the day. The pregnant royal chose a silk crepe floral-print dress by Erdem that boasts the Swedish national colors of blue and yellow, featuring a high neck and bell sleeves.

The London-based designer appears to be one of Middleton’s favorites, as she’s worn the brand on numerous occasions, including a press launch for the Heads Together campaign.

Prior to the dinner, the royal couple posed alongside Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel for a photo op, where Middleton stood out as the only royal not in an all-black ensemble. They also shared a brief sit-down conversation with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and his wife, Ulla Löfven.

Upon arrival at the formal event, they were greeted by Swedish actors Stellan Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander. Middleton took a seat next to British Ambassador to Sweden David Cairns while Prince William conversed with the ambassador’s wife, Sharon Cairns.

The Duke and Duchess will continue their four-day tour of Scandinavia with stops throughout Sweden and Norway. They are expecting their third child in April.
