Expressen quotes Billed-Bladet, which tells that most of the guests attend in the evening of 16th February at "Gloria Lietuvai” celebration concert at the Opera House in Vilnius.
Victoria and Daniel don't attend at the concert.
- The Crown Princess couple does not attend any concert on the visit to Vilnius, said Ulrika Näsholm, information officer at the court.
Their visit to Vilnius will only be over the day and will end with a visit to the Swedish Embassy's residence. There they will meet students who have worked on an essay competition on the UN's global sustainability development goals.

Svensk Damtidning has an article about Victoria and Daniel's visit to Vilnius. President Dalia Grybauskaitė welcomed her swedish guests very warmly. Victoria answered: "Congratulations on your big day! It is a great honor for us to be here". At the lunch Daniel talked with the president of Estonia and Victoria sat beside the wife of the German president. It was an intensive day, and important, even to Victoria and Daniel. At the embassy's residence Victoria and Daniel talked about sustainability with the students, and Victoria said in her speech: "I think about your past, your history, everything your country has gone through. Your ancestors and the people of Lithuania".
