Meanwhile, style queen Brigitte stuck to her chic roots with a structured, floor-length dress in a powder blue shade.

The dress was accessorized with sequins around the neckline and waist – and Brigitte wore diamond earrings to accessorise.

Princess Sofia also upped the style game when she arrived at the palace with her husband, Prince Carl Philip.

The royal donned a floor-length dress in a champagne hue, with mesh sleeves and a metallic bodice.

While the Swedish royal family went out of their way to make their French guests feel at home, they seemed to put some classic French dishes on the menu – including moules mariniere.
