Prince Bertil and Princess Astrid in Washington D.C, 1958

Prince Bertil of Sweden and Princess Astrid of Norway were on a visit to Washington D.C on this day in 1958, possibly in relation to the Scandinavian-American Foundation, two years before the Scandinavian Princesses Tour of the United States in 1960.

During the visit, Prince Bertil and Princess Astrid had luncheon with President Dwight D. Eisenhower and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower at the White House in Washington D.C.

In the evening, Prince Bertil (in the Order of St. Olav) and Princess Astrid (wearing the Vasa Tiara, Crown Princess Märtha’s Pearl Earrings and the Order of St. Olav) were the guests of honour at a Gala Dinner possibly held at the Norwegian Embassy in Washington D.C.
