Yesterday the King and Queen met a group of international media people in Princess Sibylla's Apartment at the Royal Palace. Since it's been impossible to grant all media exclusive one-by-one interviews, the Royal Court organised this big press meet for the international media so that they could get their bit as well.


The first picture is by All Over Press via the Royal Court, picture two is by TT via Norrköpings Tidningar

confirmation from RVD : http://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/content.jsp?objectid=15754

They will travel directly from Flevoland after Koninginnedag (The Queen's Day)
That's going to be a hectic day for the Dutch royals.

I'm glad that Victoria, Carl Philip, and Madeleine's partners are invited to the private party. It would have been inappropriate if they were present at the gala but it's nice that they're included in some part of the celebrations. Can't wait until the festivities begin with all the royals!:)

Thank you Jess for posting all of the pictures from today's activities. It's so wonderful to see the whole Royal Family gathered again, although I hope to see Princess Lilian soon as well, I guess it might be a bit too much for her to attend all of the events this weekend.

Princess Madeleine's outfit is great, she looks very beautiful in it. In some pictures she looks very tanned, but in others not very tanned at all, so I think the light is spooking a bit. Crown Princess Victoria looked fantastic during both of the events, that blue colour really fits her, and she looks happy and harmonious. The King loves to be celebrated, so he did indeed seem to enjoy his birthday reception for organisations etc - quite impressive to see His Majesty pictured with three members of the Wallenberg family in one picture! Nice to see a new portrait also, it caputures the King nicely.

I wonder if the King of Sweden will give Maxima and Mary the order of the Plar Star as they should be the only member of a reigening family invited without a swedish order. If I remember correctly King Harald has given orders on some special day in the past to other royals (ie not state visit). They surly wont get the Seraphim as Mathilde and Mette-Marit has gotten the Order of the Polar Star. I think all the heirs comming already have the Seraphim (not sure about Willem ALexander)?

Any news on online coverage of any of the events?

Thank you so much, purple_platinum, for posting the pictures of today's activities.
I agree with all of you that it is great to see the whole family together again. Victoria looks great as always. I love her hairdo. Although I don't like that blue skirt I must admit that the colour suits her very well.
I am glad to see the Queen wearing colourful clothes again. After the tragic death of her beloved brother she was - of course - not in the mood for colours and wore black as a sign for her sadness.
Hope we will see much more pictures this weekend!

Finally! New photos of the siblings! They look happy :)

Yes Madeleine looks very tanned, but she was in Brazil just a few weeks aago and I´m sure she worked on her tan then :) Not sure about her dress... not a hit if you ask me... And doesnt it look like she gained wheight?
oh boy, that was alot of opinions lol

A question; why did Victoria change her dress? The other ones has the same outfits on...? Or is it just me :p edit; just noticed that it was just Madeleine who didn´t change... wonder why...?
