It is a bit crazy that we are already in the fifth month of the year and I have only had two new additions to my Sparkles and Shoes Style Icon series. They were both incredibly talented movie stars, Lupita Nyong’o and Margot Robbie but if you have been following this for a while you will know I like to feature women of all ages and backgrounds. In the past I have shared the garments of ladies from around the words, from their mid 20’s to late 90’s, including fashion designers, bloggers, super models, writers, reality stars, and oh, and of course royals. Today’s latest style icon is a royal but perhaps from one of the family’s that makes the press less often – Princess Sofia of Sweden.
Unlike some, Princess Sofia, whose formal title is the Duchess of Värmland, was not born a royal – she only became a Princess and member of the Swedish royal family when she married Prince Carl Philip in 2015. The 35-year old was a glamour model before her royal role but in the past few years has bene quite busy with charity work and is now the mother of Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel. Oh, and last month after doing an emergency training course is now volunteering at a hospital in Stockholm, assisting at a hospital during the coronavirus pandemic. But now back to Princess Sofia’s Best-Dressed Moments:
