It was the first royal visit to Level39
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

Expressen tells that Victoria jokes with Daniel's similarity with the swedish minister for Health and Social Affairs, Göran Hägglund, who is one of the most famous politicians in Sweden.
When the couple on Friday was in Cambridge the Minister for Trade Ewa Björling looked curiously at the prince when Victoria called "Come on Hägglund".
- Yes, it is like this, I have heard it a couple of times, it is nothing new for me, Daniel laughed and told the background to a laughing Ewa Björling.
- And since then minister Hägglund has pointed this out on a number of occasions. Afterwards, I have also been told that we are similar, we wear the same type of glasses. I'll might have to check with Minister Hägglund, so that we do not choose the same ties and glasses.
It all began over two years ago when Daniel was in Washington with Göran Hägglund. At a dinner party at the Swedish residence they were, not knowing about each other, dressed in almost identical ties, suits and glasses. For those who did not know them previously it was difficult to see who was who.
- I was there that night and it was an older gentleman who had a hard time keeping them apart. He called the Minister for Health and Social Affairs as the prince and vice versa. It was a bit funny, Ulrika Näsholm from the court information department tells.

They have been many times at the same events and minister Hägglund has told with a laugh that people have difficulties to identify them.
Tomorrow they will be together again, Daniel and minister Hägglund visit Ängslätt School in Bunkeflostrand.

Of course we don't know the context of that joke, had the similarity just been reported again? that would explain it, apart from that I don't find it so friendly from Victoria towards Daniel.

About the similarity of Daniel and minister Hägglund has been talked in the swedish media already for many times, and minister Hägglund has talked about it in his social media, and told to Svensk Damtidning that he thinks it is funny. Minister Hägglund has told that he respects Daniel very much, they have been at the same events many times and he is impressed of Daniel's attitude to his work. Minister Hägglund said that he hasn't been invited to the Haga Palace, but he likes to work with Daniel.
Svensk Damtidning wrote in October 2012 about the similarity
Göran och Daniel – lika som bär Svensk Damtidning
Translation
About Victoria joking about the similarity - to me it is "people who play together, stay together". Victoria has often told that he loves Daniel's sense of humour, so I think Daniel loves Victoria's sense of humour. I'm quite sure that if Daniel would hate these kind of jokes, Victoria would do that.

i´m happy to see the queen received them - quite unusual i must say, but i guess she had to jump in since the rest of the family members were busy already. or, who knows, maybe she genuinely wanted to get to know them, these visits are scheduled quite a long time befoe - what a privilege to them. although wouldn't it have been lovely if W+K accompained them to cambridge, seeing it's their dukedom?

The royal court's website tells about Victoria's and Daniel's second day:
First they met the Lord Mayor of the City of London Roger Gifford and Eric Van der Kleij, Responsible for Level 39, who spoke about the vision of creating a global strategic network of entrepreneurs from a Swedish-British axis.
Then they visited Skanska Seven Acres outside Cambridge. The Seven Acres focuses on Scandinavian functional and smart design, energy efficiency and social interaction.
The day ended with a visit to the University of Cambridge where they received information about Cambridge Conservation Initiative. The visit to the University of Cambridge ended with a visit to the Centre for Governance and Human Rightsx where they received information about the Humanitarian Centre and their activities.

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!

How right you are Marg, meeting the Queen for a private tea in her salon is the icing on the cake for both Victoria and Daniel. You couldn't have put it better then that. I am sure that Queen Elizabeth has great respect for Victoria and her husband and the Swedish people as she has sat that example her entire life. The Cambridge's time will come, just not now as they still have a long way to go in learning about the workings of being royals in this world today. Not an easy task regardless of how many servants or assistants one has at one's disposal.

With regard to Victoria and Daniel taking tea with the Queen, I think this is testimony as to how close they are to her. Rather than it being scheduled months in advance, I think it quite possible that the Queen heard of their visit to London in casual conversation with, say, King Carl Gustav during a regular catch up on the phone, and decided to ask them round to tea. I know HM's schedule is rather busy, but she does have a life and has to stop sometime for a cuppa in the day - so why not see who's around to join her!?

The recent history of possible arranged marriages between the Windsors and the Bernadottes hasn't been very successful though. King Carl XVI Gustaf is rumored for example to have rejected Princess Anne as a potential bride when he was young and, despite all the speculation about how perfect William and Madeleine would have been together, neither family ever bothered to introduce them to each other when they were growing up.

Anne would've made a fantastic queen but I can imagine CG turning her down because of her having to much skin on her nose.

I often toy with the idea of who would've marry who if the old rules of royal marriages would still be valid and I always marry of Anne to either CG of Sweden or Harald of Norway.

I never read any speculations about Madeleine and William, the most often people's fantasy for William was Charlotte Casiraghi (exactly as for her mum and Pc Charles 35 years ago).
As for Madeleine the best match was Pcs Felipe and after it was Pc Nikolaos of Greece.
As for Estelle and James possible arranged match, when these 2 will be at the age of marriage, the idea of arranged royal match won't exist.

Am I glad William did not marry either Madeleine or Charlotte - neither are likely to have gone down well with the UK public.
