ll eyes were on Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip as they enjoyed a glamorous date night at the Swedish Sports Gala (Svenska idrottsgalan) on Monday 25th January 2016. The parents-to-be, who are set to welcome their first child in April, added to the elegance of the evening as they posed hand-in-hand outside the event, which was organized by Swedish Sports Academy in Stockholm Ericsson Globe Arena and held to honour the success of the country's athletes.
Princess Sofia, 31, was impeccably dressed in a long-sleeved midnight blue gown that fell to the floor, her baby bump accentuated by a waist cinching belt. Her 36-year-old husband, meanwhile, looked handsome in a black tuxedo and bow tie.
The gala was attended by some of Sweden's top sports stars, including swimmer Emma Igelstrom and boxer Mikaela Lauren, who were both recognised at the event. But it was the royal couple who stole the show.
News of the couple's pregnancy was revealed in October, four months after their beautiful summer wedding. In a statement shared on Facebook, Sofia and Carl Philip said: "We are so happy and excited to announce that we are expecting our first child. We are very much looking forward to it."
