President of the Pentagon Memorial Fund Jim Laychak stands as Silvia, the Queen of Sweden, lays a bouquet of flowers at the Pentagon Memorial, May 10, 2013. The Queen laid the flowers at the bench of Dana Falkenberg, the youngest person to be killed at the sight on September 11, 2001.
They held also a moment of silence.

Their majesties were in my hometown today. In fact, they were literally just blocks from where I live! Here's some video. I think our Mayor violated some type of protocol when he kissed Queen Silvia. Thankfully, she's a good sport!

Most people don't realize that the Swedes pre-date the English in Philadelphia! In fact, one of our newly gentrified neighborhoods -- Queen's Village -- is named not after a British Queen but Queen Christina of Sweden.

No word on whether or not the King and Queen snacked on a Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich!

The court told on Wednesday to the swedish media, that Madeleine will not attend at the other events of this visit. Svensk Damtidning wrote that Madeleine herself had told to the media, that she and Chris will not attend at this visit during the other days, unless they change their mind in the last minute.
On Saturday Svensk Damtidning tells that Madeleine has suddenly changed her mind and she and Chris will attend at the events this evening (I guess it means the reception and gala dinner).

Queen Silvia told to the press yesterday that she had got very good news: Madeleine and Chris will attend at the festivities in Wilmington on Saturday. About that Madeleine changed her mind, queen Silvia said: "Wonderful, it made me so happy".
- It was Princess Madeleine herself who thought it suited her and Chris O'Neill to be involved also in this event. It was an initiative from their side, says Annika Sönnerberg from the court.
- We were so excited when we heard it. We believe it is unique to have here so many royals. This was the best thing that could have happened, says Kathy Cross Sells, president of Kalmarnyckel.
But the big thing is that also the vice president Joe Biden will attend at the events today.

The media coverage except the photos has been rather poor. Prince Harry is getting all the attention.

From the dinner on Saturday
Här önskar Joe Biden Madeleine lycka till Nyheter Expressen
Translation

Här firar kungen med Joe Biden Nyheter Aftonbladet

I'm rather sad. This visit shows Madeleine's nowaday's work ethics. To me she isn't representing Sweden anymore, she is representing herself. If she would represent Sweden, she would have attended at the whole program and showed her respect to those brave swedish and finnish men and women, who went to America 375 years ago. Now it looks that she picks up those events that aren't so "boring", and chooses the events with the most photographers. On Wednesday she said that they wouldn't attend at the other events and on Friday she and Chris decide that it would be cool to attend at the reception and dinner. This was rather an official visit, so such an impulsive behaviour is quite interesting. Madeleine has potential and she would be a good asset for Sweden in USA, if she would take her role as more seriously.
Queen Silvia looks lovely, an interesting choice to use the ruby tiara as a necklace with this dress. She knows how to dress to a celebration like this. She represents her country gracefully. And it was great to see vice president Biden attending at the party, he has his permanent home in Wilmington.

I agree with you LadyFinn. I also find stressing out that it was Madeleine's decission to be there, rather unfortunate. I'd say as a Swedish Princess her presence there should have been confirmed from the begining. The press department said many times, that she is acting as kind of a representative of SRF in USA to justify her long stay there. It should have been no brainer and at least she, if not Christopher, should have been there to support her parents the whole time.

The residents of Deleware were out in force on Saturday afternoon to welcome King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden as they celebrated the 375th anniversary of Sweden and Finland's colonial establishment of New Sweden, now located in Wilmington, Delaware.
The Swedish royals began their day in Delaware with a luncheon at the Bunea Vista Mansion in New Castle with Governor Jack Markell.
After lunch, the royals headed to the Wilmington river front where they boarded a replica ship of the Kalmar Nykel and ceremoniously sailed to Fort Christina.
