I like the Queen's outfit and the princesss' outifts. Princess Madeleine hair has grown a lot since we last saw her. Both princesss' look tanned and healthy.

The ladies are looking great, but I just think Victoria looks gorgeous! Really nice this hairstyle. And Emma Pernald is such a lucky girl, I hope she realises that

Anyway, I read here that ZDF will broadcast something, but the post didn't say what day and time (or what event) Does anybody know? Does any other german channel show the event (ARD perhaps)?

Madeleine looks lovely. I really think the lighting is doing something weird because in some pictures she looks really tan and in others she looks pretty much normal. I think she has gained weight but I don't care. Her outfit was okay, not her best, not her worst. It's just great to see her back happy and healthy. Victoria and Carl Philip look great as usual. Why did Victoria and Queen Siliva change but not Madeleine?

The King looks really happy! :)

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)?

Is the Seraphim a higher order and that's what only heirs to the throne receive? Do "new" royal persons always receive an order from a sovereign country's head of state when they visit for the first time?

I find it interesting that they sent Sophie & Edward to Monaco for Prince Albert's enthronement celebrations, but not to Sweden for the King's celebrations.

I wonder when the royals will arrive... maybe not until Sunday for the gala.

HRH the Crown Princess Mary Elizabeth received the Order of St Olav off HM the King Harald during the Bi-Centenial visit to Denmark last year.

This suit with the stripes on Madeleine is not her best showing... I don;t believe she gained a whole lot of weight, but this suit does not photograph well.

Loving Vic's Hair

This has been mentioned a couple of times but I have to say CP Victoria's hair looks awesome! It is nice to see her do something else than just putting it up into a ponytail.

Madeleines tan is begining to scare me. She's starting to look red instead of tanned, hopefully it's just the lighting and also I loved her comment about the GPS.

The "Tan": It must be the lightning or the flashes. If you look at all the pics - for example the one where Silvia takes something out of a box in purple's first pictures post on p.6 - you see that sometimes everyone the men included have red faces and sometimes white ones.

The clothes: Agree they look good. Madeleine wasn't the only one who didn't change. Her big brother didn't neither.

The GPS comment: It's also on p.6 post 120: "Mom, it will take your job as a map reader now."

The Seraphim: In 1995 the system was changed and now only head of states and future head of states get the Seraphim. So if Maxima and Mary get an order at all it's going to be the Polar Star.
