This seems like a short 2 day trade visit by the Crown Princess and her Husband. They were received by Her Majesty the Queen. Though I am sure most people would have liked William and Catherine to receive them (which would have occurred tomorrow since they had engagements today), I believe being received by the head of state is "better"(for lack of a better word) than being received by the second in line to the throne.

As much as I admire the BRF I find their "standoffishness" (is that a word?) puzzling. Do they feel they are better, or more important than other royal families?

They are certainly more famous, but I don't think they feel themselves are better than other Royal Families.

The thing with the British Royal Family is that duty will always come first. No member of the Family would cancel an engagement to meet the Swedish Crown Princely Couple.

And it wasn't a State Visit. They were received by The Queen, the Head of State. Nothing could be better than that.

Victoria is such a happy beautiful person and it shows in those photos. Glad they were received by Queen Elizabeth

I think it's lovely that the Queen received them and that is the most we should hope for. William and Catherine are not "heads of state" nor are they "working royals" so they have no real need to have meetings with foreign royals.

The only royals that Victoria and Daniel would know would be Edward and Sophie. We saw Edward and Sophie greet Daniel and Carl-Philip at the Olympic's last year, when William, Catherine and Harry all ignored them essentially.

The Queen met them privately, therefore more on a personal basis not as a Head of State.

Why would they appreciate meeting the queen? They have met her before, I am sure. And who cares. Victoria's father is a king. It is not that Elizabeth is something more special.

How about that they have respect for the Head of State; or that they know and like her; that she is busy and found the time for them. Perhaps they do care.

Victoria really should do something with her hair; she would look so much more attractive. (I know, I know...I sound like those people who keep wishing Kate would put her hair up...)

You are right. No matter how "popular" they are, they are only the second string.

Hopefully there was more going on when the cameras were actually following the sports.

Cepe you have the right of it. Having a private tea with Queen Elizabeth, a monarch of great respect, whose time is scheduled to the nth degree, really shows how much she appreciates the visit of this young couple. It is probably the first chance she has had to speak privately to Daniel and Victoria without it being part of another engagement.

I cannot quite get it through my head that anyone could think that havinga private meeting with HM instead of meeting the Cambridges is second or third rate treatment. This is real life not Britain's Got Talent!

Eeh ? Elizabeth are the ruling Queen of many countries have ruled since 1952 and are europes by far longest and the worlds second longest reigning monarch so yes i do think she is something special. And she is a good role model for Victoria.

Stoppa pressarna about the article of the visit from Expressen
- We must not forget that England is the largest export market of Sweden and we have a lot in common, said Victoria to Expressen.
How does it feel for the parents to be abroad for work travel again?
- It feels great! Or? laughs Victoria and Daniel adds:
- Yes, now I can not say anything else?
Estelle was with them in London and taken care by nanny Adeline Petersson.

I would say third string behind The Queen and DoE and Charles and Camilla.

And I've always felt that Philip would serve well as a role model for Daniel, who could learn a lot about the best way to be a great "consort"

I was generalizing but you are indeed correct. The Cambridge's have little to offer as yet, merely celebrity status a la Posh and Becks.
