The king and Silvia are in Aachen, Germany, to attend the inauguration of the world's largest equestrian competition. On Monday there was held a program that lasted nearly an hour. The Swedish Life Guards had a show on the square, Midsummer dance was danced and several Swedish traditions were displayed. The orchestra Royal Fire Brigade, Malmo Fire Brigade Band, played under the direction of Jan-Ingmar Landgren, Vikings rode past the royal couple and musicians danced around the cobbled quaint little square. And a small show with Astrid Lindgren theme was erected in the square.
- People in Aachen like Swedes. We like all northerners. It is a great honor for us that the Swedish queen come to Aachen, says Hildegaard Wiedmann who came to the square with her friends to see the Swedish royal couple.
The feeling is mutual. The royal couple appreciate the trip to Aachen.
- The king and queen are very pleased about these days, says Margareta Thorgren.
After the mission in Germany the royal couple continues to Öland where the whole family gathers.
- The royal couple will go home to Sweden and Solliden to celebrate the Crown Princess's birthday, Thorgren says.
In order to be home for her daughter's 39 birthday, they have a crisis plan. The royal couple will take military Hercules plane, a cargo plane to get home.
- After that there is a private holiday, Thorgren says.

I saw the live event on WDR yesterday. The Queen, the King and Princess Benedikte looked great. The speech from the Queen was nice and met with approval by the well-willing public. A detachement of the King's Guard on horseback was in Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle) and gave a nice performance.

Silvia's opening speech was on the news and again I thought, what a strange accent and some grammar mistakes on top. For a german native she really has lost the grip on the language.

I even mentioned this about 30 years ago!
Must have been to do with her long residence in Brazil during her childhood.

The king presented today in Solliden the Öland Inhabitant of the Year award to farmer and blogger Hanna Karlsson. Queen Silvia attended also at the event, traditionally at the traditional costume.

The king said that it is always great to deliver the award. The jury's justification: "This year Öland Inhabitant is a driven farmer who dares to invest in a depressed industry. Hanna Karlsson has through her acclaimed blog become an ambassador of Öland and its farmers. She demonstrates in word and deed that everyone is welcome to Öland, both tourists and fellow humans who are displaced."

From the court website
Kungaparet hyllade Årets Ölänning - Sveriges Kungahus

The Award winner Hanna Karlsson at her Facebook blog
"Which thing I got to be at yesterday! Sitting there in the sun at the royal family's summer palace Sollliden with previous year winners behind my back, my family by my side, and the king and queen sitting opposite me.
All lovely people in the audience, the girls in Isle of You who sang and played for us and everything was broadcasted live in the radio. How crazy is that ?!
To get the prize from the King, a little chat with the Queen, and a snack while sitting next to the king was ... awesome!
Of course I took the opportunity to invite the royal family to my farm, I had no milk with me, but the king got one of our milk bottles, I hope he comes and fills it some day. :-)
Big Thank you all for letting me be a part of this!"

On Thursday the Queen attended a concert given by 8 year old Leandro Bongers, a Piano Prodigy, at Birgitta Church in Berga. He had one wish that the Queen would come and she did.

When queen Silvia and king Carl Gustaf were at CHIO Aachen, the queen gave an interview to Bunte, which Bunte publishes today at their website.
Among other things the queen says that she doesn't speak German to her grandchildren, they are too small. But the Crown Princess speaks very good German. Madeleine and Carl Philip are shy in speaking, but of course they understand the language. And the grandchildren? Each language they learn, is a door to the world. It is also much more convenient when you can several languages. Her grandchildren call her Modermoder.
Queen Silvia:
- In October we are what especially pleased to have the state visit to Germany for the second time to us! The first time we were in Bonn, now Berlin is the capital and Germany is very different. We actually visit the country privately every year. Whenever we travel to the south of France, we drive through Germany, stopping in different cities. Every time we take a different route. I can only recommend!
Those are insanely long car rides. Isn't it straining to do that?
- Oh, my husband is an excellent driver.
Are you a pampering Grandma?
- Well, in Sweden the sweets are given for children on Saturdays only. Everyone follows this. Dentists propagate this rule, of course, say that children are better on one day to eat as much as they want, and then good brushing, than to nibble sweets everyday. Sometimes the children ask from me: "Is today Saturday? Then I say "No". And then they say: "No? Oh, I'll wait". That's no problem.

Austrian newspapers report that the king and the queen were at Salzburg this weekend to attend the opera festivities. Apparently the king suddenly need a dentist before he could attend the opera plays.
