^^^ Those are lovely pics. I think that eldery and children are the best fields the queen can act on her own.

King Carl Gustaf said to SVT Nyheter Västerbotten that he gets a very good feeling at the forest. Swedish forest is fantastic. It is growing fast.
On Monday, the elk hunt starts again. Will the king be hunting then?
- I have not had time to do much, but it will be a little later in the fall for me.
But you are very much interested in that?
- Yes, yes, I love hunting.
The King has received many grandchildren, how the king will share his natural skills. Will the children go with the king to hunting?
- Yeah, yeah, sure, sure, but now they are so small. But the day will probably also come.

The event wasn't at the calendar, so was it official or private? Queen Silvia arrived obviously with some friends, the lady in blue behind her is the queen's friend Catharina Stenbock Lewenhaupt.

Video. The Queen said that she looks very much forward to the evening, especially listening to Peter (Jöback). Wonderful. I'm happy to be here.

Probably a combination of a private visit and an official visit. Some things they keep secret until the very last minute. She was there with some friends but also with a court lady, adjutant and life guards. The Queen is good friend with the owner of the Theatre Vicky Von Der Lancken too (to her right) and "The Phantom" himself Peter Jöback is a huge favourite at the Royal Palace.
They sat very well visible in the middle of the salon so everyone was quite surprised when they arrived.

The King suffers from herniation, and his program will be slightly adjusted to make rehabilitation possible. Most of the events will be carried through though.
