Tonight, Victoria dazzled in the form-hugging plum gown, which espoused her slender silhouette. 

On the dress, she was wearing her royal sash and her honours, pinned to the outfit with a blue ribbon. 

She was wearing the Grand Cross with Collar of the Royal Order of the Seraphim, as well as the Grand Cross of the Social Order of Innocence, and her father’s Jubilee medals. 

The Crown Princess styled her hair into a bun and kept her accessories to a minimum, with just a round silver necklace adorned with a blue gem and matching earrings.

Last week, Victoria got into the festive spirit by picking the royal family’s Christmas tree. 

The heir apparent to the throne was a vision of elegance as she received this year’s Christmas trees in the Royal Palace and chose which spruces would be decorated and displayed.

The mother-of-two donned a flowing red ankle-length dress which she paired with a charcoal-coloured jacket to guard against the winter chill.

She finished the look with a stunning pair of high heels, which had a simple dark colour at first glance but wowed with a colourful floral pattern on the side.

The Christmas tree choosing is a tradition of the Swedish family which takes place every year and is observed by all its members.

The tradition sees the royal family welcome students from the master’s program at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).

The students present the royals with a selection of Christmas trees which they will then choose from to have displayed in the royal palace in Stockholm.

Since the late 1960s, SLU has presented Christmas trees to the Royal Palace. The King’s Cave has got its current name according to this tradition, it was originally called Nordmann’s branch.
