Swedish King and Queen to visit Delaware in May

Quote:
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden will celebrate the 375th anniversary of the New Sweden Colony, which ultimately became the city of Wilmington.
The visit was officially announced by the Swedish and Finnish embassies in Washington in coordination with the Delaware-based New Sweden Alliance. The King and Queen will be joined by Finland's Speaker of the Parliament Eero Heinäluoma for the visit to Wilmington on Saturday, May 11.

The ‘Delaware visit’ of King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia celebrating the 375th jubilee of Swedish settler’s arrival in Delaware and (starting today and ending on May 11) is actually a much broader visit to the USA with stops in New York City, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and finally Delaware on Saturday – practically a scaled-down US state visit.
Princess Madeleine will join her parents for the NYC program.

Very interesting, suddenly when the royal couple and a lot of photographers are around, Madeleine and Chris are acting totally different towards eachother than at all the paparazzi photos taken of them.

The king and queen of Sweden are expected to visit several Washington cultural institutions during their trip to the United States.
On Thursday, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden are expected to visit the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. They are also expected to attend a performance of "The Sun Also Rises" by The Washington Ballet at the Kennedy Center. It is based on Ernest Hemingway's classic book.

LadyFinn, please specify. What kind of behaviour is it that has caught your attention? Since I am not permanently following the swedish threads, I am completely unaware of any changes.
Thank you kindly in advance for your help in this matter.

I meant that Madeleine and Chris were smiling broadly and looking very lovey-dovey, at the paparazzi-photos there hasn't been much interaction between them at all and Chris has often looked bad-tempered.

Oh. Thanks for the clarification, LadyFinn. Just hope that Madeleine knows what she is doing.
Thanks also for all the other Information.

The king got annoyed at the exhibition, because photographers from newspapers and news agencies went after him into one of the exhibitions.
- That's enough now. Thank you and goodbye, the King said.
