Oh no, that's so sad. I hope she feels better, but it's really too bad that she won't be there.

Queen Silvia (C) of Sweden watches as Laplander Nils Erland Walkeapaa (R) hands over a traditional belt from the reindeer hunters association to King Carl Gustaf (L) at a gift reception at the Royal castle in Stockholm April 29, 2006. King Carl Gustaf celebrates his 60th birthday tomorrow.

that's too bad... Queen Margarethe is always close to the King.
i know it's really long shot, but perhaps they can send Princess Alexandra or Prince Joachim to fill-in. but, yeah, Joachim is regent.. :( :o

Some gossip on the dresses.
DN says that it is rumoured that Madeliene has bought a dress in Hollywood, and that it is possible that Victoria has been to Italy for one of her dresses(fingers crossed and hoping since Im tired of her old satin dresses) No word on who has made Silvias dresses and nothing will be said about that either. One who has not been making dresses for the royals this time is Lars "Satin" Wallin, he on the other hand has made dresses for 11-12 of the society ladies that after sleepless nights in fare of not beeing invited because they having fallen out of favour with the Queen or divorced the Kings friends finally could relaxe once the invitations arrived....

A funny article with a somewhat bitchy tone in DN (in swedish)

The Dinner at Drottningholm starts 20.30

I think it would be really nice if Frederik took a day away from his sailing vacation and went with the Queen being sick. Even for one night. Two consorts going, neither who are actually related to the King, with no head of the monarchy or heir to the throne going looks bad. The Swedish King isn't just another King, but a cousin of the Danish royal family. In respect of the late Queen Ingrid and her Swedish roots, as well as the geographical and historical ties between Denmark and Sweden, I think it would be important that Frederik step up to the plate and attend this event. It's a party afterall, it wouldn't he hard work.

I like how Jonas is escorting Emma. Even Madeleine and Carl Philip's partners are close! :) I like Emma's dress and wrap from what I see in the picture. Hope to see more close-ups!

Its not a sailing vacation. He is participating in a sailing competition - The Farr40 European circuit. He is the helmsman of his farr40 boat and he has a crew of 8 people. It is not something he just can leave. Im sure Frederik has been on the phone King Carl Gustaf:)
