Pic: Going National
One of the cool things about being a Nordic royal is that you get to wear fun and colorful traditional costumes on national holidays like Queen Silvia of Sweden wore today on National Day. When I studied in Norway, I learned that the costumes are varied according to the region or village where they originate. They also tend to be very expensive so most women have one and have to try to fit into their entire lives.
