King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attended at the prize-giving ceremony for the Themed Gardens exhibition at Solliden's park.
Solliden invited leading representatives from Swedish parks and gardens to submit contributions, and four entries were selected. They competed for the Solliden Award and the Visitors' Award. The Solliden Award is decided by a jury. The Visitors' Award has been voted by the visitors on 1st July-9th August.
The idea is to add a new dimension to the palace grounds and to give visitors inspiration and new ideas. This year's theme was "Den goda trädgården" (The Good Garden). The participants were:

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia participate today in the traditional Swedish King's Rally on Öland. The Rally started at 09.00 from Strand Hotell Borgholm and ends at 15.00. There are 113 cars taking part. The king drives his Volvo PV60 from 1946, the car he got as a gift on his 50th birthday. 220 people collected money and donated the car to the king. In 1997 was the first Rally, at the Rally can participate only those who donated money to the king's gift.

The Swedish King's Rally is this year organized for the 13th time, of which twelve of them have been arranged in Borgholm. The royal couple have agreed to attend, and according to Kjell Gehammar, who is in charge of the Rally, the king has been extremely careful that the rally has to be with and extend the tourist season on Öland.
- He is very much concerned. The first suggestion was to have the Rally in early August, but it was too early, the king thought. He wants to look after the season on Öland.

The royal couple's hectic schedule in New York
The King and Queen are in New York.
But because of the busy schedule, there is no visit to the daughter, Princess Madeleine.
During the weekend, the King and Queen attend a dinner and a board meeting at the World Scout Foundation in New York, USA.
Then, on Monday and Tuesday, they visits the UN for deeper information about the work of the Security Council. In addition, the royal couple will be informed about Sweden's work with children and armed conflict with meetings with representatives of the UN and Sweden's UN delegation.
- They will not have so much free time but probably a few hours here and there, but then it's private, says Margareta Thorgren.
On Monday morning, the King and Queen meet the Security Council, which will tell, among other things, developments in the Middle East. In the afternoon, they will visit the Folke Bernadotte bust inside the UN building.
Later, they have a meeting with ambassador of Sweden to UN Olof Skoog and ambassador of Norway to UN Tore Hattrem, as well as with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Princess Madeleine lives in Florida. However, the busy schedule means that the king and queen can not meet their daughter during this trip.
- It's not going to happen at this moment, said Margareta Thorgren.

Photos from Monday, among others from the meeting with Secretary-General António Guterres

When the King and Queen visited the UN Headquarters in New York on Monday, they had a special request:
They wanted to see the bust of the King's godfather.
- It has been the royal couple themselves who asked to do this, says Anne-Sofie Näslund, Expressen's correspondent in New York
The King and Silvia are on a visit in New York. The official reason for the trip is a visit to the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan, where the royal couple participated in a meeting of the Security Council during Monday. On the agenda, was the situation in the Middle East.
However, on the way to the meeting, the royal couple had asked to make a stop to the UN lobby, to see the famous bust of Folke Bernadotte.
- Queen Silvia has previously stayed at the bust when she was in New York. She asked her reporters to take a picture of her next to it, says Anne-Sofie Näslund.
Folke Bernadotte was cousin of Gustaf VI Adolf and also godfather of the king.

The royal couple visited the UN in New York
On 19-20 November, the Royal couple visited the UN headquarters in New York and the employees of the Swedish UN Representation in the city.
The purpose of the visit was to inform about Sweden's two-year membership of the UN Security Council, which ends until New Year.
On Monday morning, the royal couple was received by Ambassador Olof Skoog at Permanent Mission of Sweden to the UN. At the UN Permanent Mission, the King and Queen were then given the opportunity to greet the employees and attend the morning meeting of the Permanent Mission.
Ambassador Olof Skoog also spoke of Sweden's work in the UN, focusing on the two years as a non-permanent member of the Security Council. Later on Monday, the Royal couple met several UN representatives, including Secretary General António Guterres and Achim Steiner, Head of UN Development Program (UNDP).
At lunchtime, the royal couple visited the Security Council Hall where they listened to a meeting on the Middle East peace process from the audience. In the afternoon, Norway's UN ambassador Tore Hattrem gave a guided tour of the Security Council Hall, donated by Norway to the UN.
In the late afternoon, King Gapa met with Virginia Gamba, the Secretary-General's special messenger for children and armed conflict.
The day ended with a dinner at Consul General Annika Rembe in the residence on Park Avenue.
Tuesday, November 20th
On Tuesday, the day began with a presentation on the UN's work on youth, peace and security with representatives of the UN Representation and the Interpeace organization, established by the UN in 1994.
Then followed a meeting with Bintou Keita, from the United Nations Department for Peacekeeping Operations, who informed about UN peacekeeping work.
The visit was terminated by a representative from the UN Permanent Mission who gave a presentation on Sweden's peacekeeping efforts in Mali.
