Sofia of Sweden celebrates her 38th birthday on St. Nicholas Day. The palace posted a portrait on the Swedish royal family's official Instagram account. "Today, December 6th, H.K.H. Princess Sofia turns 38. Congratulations!", Is the comment on the photo.
The wife of Carl Philip of Sweden is looking at the camera with bright eyes and a slight smile in the picture, one arm resting on her hip. The dress of the princess is particularly striking.
The lilac colored dress is completely covered by a floral pattern, which is also found on the waist belt and the sheer long sleeves. The 38-year-old's dark hair falls slightly wavy over her shoulders and a light pink lip gloss rounds off the fresh look.

The dress is from Swedish fashion brand 'by Malina', as can be seen on the label's Instagram page. In addition to the balloon sleeves, it also has a monochrome belt and is knee-length.
