Hmmm, I agree with everyone on Mette-Marit's dress. She can look so good, so why does she insist on wearing something frumpy. Why not re-wear the Valentino gown from the baptism in Greece - she looked gorgeous in that - instead? The black sleeves on this dress should've been ripped off, by someone.

I absolutely adore Queen Sofia and Queen Sonia. They looked marvellous!
Mary's hairdo was beautiful, but I'm not very found of the dress.
Maxima's gown was ok. Not her best, but very nice.
I also liked Marie Chantal (pity we couldn't see the top of the dress) and Rosario Nadal of Bulgaria (she is always sooo elegant!:))
The worst dress was absolutely Mette-Marit's.:(

The Te Deum in the Palace Church was wonderful!

Many royals in the pews, and before the arrival of the Royal Family, the new fanfare for the King, which was a gift from the Royal Guards, was played, and then they entered to organ music. Queen Silvia wore a great red suit and hat, but Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine re-used older clothes.

The hymn of praise "Te Deum - O, God, we praise you" was sung, and all of the music during the service was by Mozart and Kraus. The sermon by the Chief Court Chaplain was also wonderful, I hope they'll publish it on the website later.

Who is this couple please? http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...2&d=1146387439

I think it's a great shame Mathilde & Philippe weren't present, they had an engagement in Brussels, but maybe they could have followed WA & Maxima's example?

For me Emma Pernald, grandduchess Maria Teresia, princess Maxima and princess Mary looked the best, absolutely wonderful, the way a princess ought to look.

Shame on you Mette Marit, that's all I can say

The Defence's tribute on the Outer Courtyard is now in progress. There was just a march past by 500 soldiers, a very impressive sight! The King and Prince Carl Philip are on the ground on the podiums, as per tradition, to receive the tributes, and the royal ladies of the Royal Family are in the small balcony above.

The royal guests are standing in the windows looking down from the Apartments of the Orders of Chivalry, King Juan Carlos seemed very intrested - he stood close to the windows, almost leaning a bit forward to the window to get a better view

Soon it's time for the King to step out on the large balcony of the Royal Palace, at Lejonbacken, were he will receive tributes from the huge crowd that has gathered on the streets, and a musical tribute.

After this, it's time for a Royal Cortège to the City Hall were the Parliament will host a lunch at 2 PM CET.
