I would assume they would be there. I would like to see pictures of them as well. It would be nice to see a picture of the King and his four sisters together.

I understand that there has to be a line drawn between public and private life and such occasions, and really, I respect such a line. But it seems a bit like a spoil sport on the King's part to not pose for even five minutes for pictures as he and his family arrive. I'm not saying that there should be pictures inside the dinner or the party of the guests eating or dancing, just the arrival.

The King has grown up in front of the Swedish public and all week we've seen him photographed as he receives gifts. We can't see pictures of him for just a few minutes on this grand occasion?
I agree. This is a momentous occasion to be celebrated with joy and with the public. He is the King of Sweden and IMO his people (and people from other countires :)) deserve a five minute photo op of just the arrival like you said. I respect the royal family's privacy and don't expect photos of the dinner but a few photos outside of the palace would have been nice. And Madeleine has been pretty absent the past month so it would have been nice to see her with her family again all dressed up.

This is a private party and we are only seeing the guests arrive. The tent where the party was held is in very close proximity to Drottningholm slott so the family did not leave the property and then make an entrance. They are essentially home already.

I know they were home already but I had hoped for a quick five-minute step out from the palace to take some photos. IMO that's not an unreasonable request to ask of a King on his 60th birthday. Also, the whole family would have been dressed up which would have just been great to see! :)

Thanks for the pics everyone! :)
Mary and Maxima both look stunning, as do Marie-Chantal and Maria-Theresa.
Whoever suggested that Mette-Marit wear that dress should be shot!!!
Still no pictures of the birthday boy and his family (apart from Lillian)??

Does anyone know why we saw Princess Lilian arrive? I wonder why she was not already inside the palace. She is part of the royal family. Also, she had no escort. Usually she has one of the royal siblings to hold onto to but tonight she flew solo. She looked lovely though as always. :) It's been awhile since we've seen her in black.

The most beautiful ladies for me:

1. GD Maria Teresa
2. CP Mary
3. CP Maxima

P.S. JessRulz, I agree with you. That person, witch gave that dress to Mette-Marit, should be really shot. She is beautiful, but I hate that dress!

Wow! Thanks so much for the photos, I really enjoyed seeing all of it. Everyone is dressed their best with their best smiles. But my favourite for the evening is Queen Sofia of Spain, she looks so feminine, I love her Valentino couture gown, it makes her look young and radiant :) It's disappointing that we didn't have a glimpse of the Swedish princesses :(

Both Princess Mary & Mette dresses doesn't do them any justice, its just horrible in my view. I love Maxima, Rosario and Maria Teressa' gown.

PS. is it me or Princess Maxima smoking habit is showing in her face? For a 34yrs old, she looks like a woman in her late 40s.

There are no pictures of them tonight unfortunately. King Carl Gustaf wanted this celebration to be private, just the royal family and his honored guests. But we will see them tomorrow, all in their gala wear! :)

omg....look at Daniel's glasses......it makes him look like he's in the 40's or 50's and it also make him look weird!!!!

Jonas is very handsome!!!! :)

I think Maxima and Marie Chantel's looks great!! The engagement dress on Mary, I think it looks weird this time, it sort of look different from the frist time she wore it, but I like her hair!

Mette-Marit's dress was horrid as was Maxim'a...Absolutely horrid!

All I can say is thank goodness they are both beautiful women!

Mary's hair was stunning & so very, very flattering. I'm not a big fan of her engagement gown however.
