Queen Silvia

Queen Silvia sat for this portrait on several occasions. The artist Nelson Shanks has consciously chosen a calm background to make The Queen stand out.

Queen Silvia wears the sash and grand star of the Order of the Seraphim, and a brilliant clasp with a miniature portrait of King Carl XVI Gustaf. She wears the Coronation Tiara, which she also wears on ceremonial occasions and for official portraits.
