King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia were seen on Monday in Neuburg, Germany. The king drove a Ferrari, followed by another Ferrari driven by the bodyguards.
In Sunday evening they were seen in Klosterbräu. Lord Mayor Bernhard Gmehling had asked them to sign the Golden Book, but they refused because it wasn't an official visit. On Monday after the breakfast they made a spontaneous visit to Flämische Barockgalerie with the Lord Mayor.
Because the bodyguards were discreetly in the background and the Neuburger police were in civilian clothes, the Royal visit was barely noticed, Gmehling describes his impressions. The royal couple wore casual clothes. The royal couple wanted to eat bratwurst and potatoes and chatted about and hour with mayor Gmehling and his wife. Besides the formal address "Your Majesty", everything was quite casual and loose. Gmehling spoke german with the queen and english with the king. The Queen had shown photos of how Midsummer is celebrated in Sweden. The men discovered a commonality: both like to cook. The bodyguard took a photo which goes to the private album of the Lord Mayor and may not be published. Some goes also to the photo taken at the Klosterbräu Hotel. The king and queen continued yesterday afternoon their trip, perhaps to Switzerland.

Hotelier Otto Böhm tells that the hotel rooms for the king and queen at the Klosterbräu were booked incognito, three days before they arrived the hotel was told who was coming.
The king and queen arrived in Sunday evening, with four bodyguards and an officer. The Neuburg police put two officers to secure the visit. On Monday the couple walked in Neuburg with Lord Mayor Bernhard Gmehling. His wife Hermione gushed afterwards: "Both of them are so natural - and incredibly likeable."

According to the swedish press, the king doesn't speak german. If he would, I would think that he would have spoken german with the Lord Mayor and not english.

Finnish MTV has photos of the king and queen on their holiday, probably taken in St. Maxime. They seemed to be on a very good mood and the king showed thumbs up to the photographers.

In these photos it appears Kungen has a bracelet on his wrist. Has anyone ever seen it before?
