Tiara Watch of the Day: February 23

I tweeted about this yesterday, and of course we're going to cover it here today. I might cover it here every week for the rest of time. This event is my new happy place.

Princess Madeleine is the patron of Min Stora Dag (My Big Day), a foundation that makes dreams come true for children with serious illnesses. Yesterday, she invited twelve kids to the Royal Palace, where she received them in full princess mode for a fairy tale party.

Actually, that deserves some caps lock: this is FULL PRINCESS MODE. Most of her look from the 2015 Nobel Prize Ceremony was repeated, including her gorgeous Fadi El Khoury gown, her orders, and the Swedish Aquamarine Kokoshnik Tiara. And she threw in some impressive new chandelier earrings for good measure.

The look alone would have brought out my jumpy claps - it was one of my favorite royal looks in 2015 - but the occasion sends it over the top. These kids got the full royal red carpet treatment, right down to the fancy table dressings and a princess in a tiara to sit on the floor with them. (Two princesses, actually - Princess Leonore attended in her own fairy princess getup!) I'm sorry, is someone cutting onions in here? This is my favorite Tiara Watch of all time, is what I'm saying.

Update: Oh, help. There's a video too.
