The Swedish royal family wowed in white tie and tiaras as they attended the Nobel Prize Ceremony in Stockholm on Tuesday. King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and husband Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip and wife Princess Sofia, as well as Princess Madeleine were all present at the annual ceremony at the Concert Hall.

Since 1901, the Nobel Prizes have been presented to the Laureates at ceremonies on 10 December, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death. As stipulated in the Swedish-born inventor's will, which was opened after his death in 1896, the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, and Economic Sciences are awarded in Stockholm, Sweden, while the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway.  

The ceremony is followed by a lavish banquet in the Blue Hall of the City Hall of Stockholm, where the royals are the guests of honour. Take a look at the best photos…

Princess Sofia customised her wedding jewels for the ceremony. She wore emerald toppers for her nuptials to Prince Carl Philip in 2015, but swapped them for turquoise stones. She has also donned pearl toppers with the headpiece, which was a wedding gift to her from new in-laws King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia. For Tuesday's ceremony, Sofia finished her look with an intricate updo and large turquoise earrings.

The headpiece features large blue stones and diamonds interlaced in a lattice-style. The royal completed her ensemble with a pair of statement diamond earrings.
