Princess Victoria of Sweden paid tribute to the author of a famous heroine on the occasion of the presentation of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, on May 31.
No sapphire, no diamond. The jewelry set worn by princess victoria from Sweden, on May 31, on the occasion of the presentation of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (Alma) was not flashy. On the contrary, the Duchess of Västergötland had made a symbolic and appropriate choice to dress her sky blue silk dress.
To present the prestigious Alma Prize for Childhood and Youth Literature to its 2020 and 2021 laureates, the Swedish heiress to the throne has chosen to wear earrings with the effigy of Pippi Longstocking and a pendant representing his spotted horse, Uncle Alfred. Through these accessories, Princess Victoria paid tribute to the Swedish novelist Astrid Lindgren who brought the character of Pippi Longstocking to life.
Is Princess Victoria a rebellious woman?
Astrid Lindgren died in 2002 and that is why the Swedish government founded this literary prize the same year. In the kingdom of Sweden, Pippi Longstocking, this nine-year-old red-haired girl “no higher than three apples”, is known as Pippi Långstrump (Pippi long socks).
Jewelry,a total value of 560 €, worn by the princess were created by Maria Nilsdotter. The young Swedish jewelry designer launched in 2020 an eco-silver collection dedicated to the heroine with red braids who defy the laws of attraction. On his website, the designer describes Pippi Longstocking as“original icon of the rebellious girl”. Did Princess Victoria have a message to convey?
