I don't recall seeing the Zorreguieta's at any public celebration of Queen Beatrix's birthdays and I don't think CP Mary's family ever attended any of Queen Margrethe's birthday galas.

It's not a state occasion. It's his personal birthday. And we don't know what kind of invitations and for whom he have sent.
I disagree. His birthday celebration is a semi-state occasion at the very least. He didn’t have to celebrate with foreign royals, Presidents from Finland and Iceland, members of the Riksdag and all at banquets, receptions, a concert, a parade, etc.

For royalty, I think invitations are sent from court to court (not to the specific invitee) and then that court/royal house decides who to send.

With GD Maria Teresa’s fear of flying and the HGD couple going to China, GD Henri would have been the only likely candidate to go. I also wish he could have gone to Friday or early Saturday events.
On the other Hand the closing of the Octave is every year which the 70th birthday of the swedish King is nit. And if is sio important then they should have not scheduled the economic mission of Guillaume and Stephanoe so that they will miss it the second year in a row. (last yerar they where at another official Event ab road).

The 70th of the Swedish King is hardly a big deal from the perspective of the LRF. I think they were right to not attend.

It seems that the dress cose wasnt clear: some in long dresses, some in cocktail dresses and princess Birgitta is dressed for the beach. Lovely outfit for princess Takamodo of Japan. Nice to see Daniels parents, they seem to be lovely people.

I agree, it would be comparable to the BRF missing the trooping of the color for a birthday event like this. It may be an annual event, but it is a very important one to the Lux family, one they try not to miss unless something big (like a trade trip to China) comes up.

But king Harald and queen Sonja weren't at the guest list for tonight's concert, the norwegian royals should have arrived tomorrow. Prince Albert was at the guest list but I haven't seen a photo of him.

Last year the Wedding of Carl Philip and Sofia was on the same day as Trooping the Colour and Edward and Sophie attended the Wedding and missed the Trooping.
And the Octave ceremony is only on the next day not the same then the birthday celebrations.

And, again, GD Henri attended Queen Margrethe Ii's birthday gala, but like the kings of Spain and the Netherlands, chose not to attend Carl Gustaf's.

Yes, but there probably aren't flights to Luxembourg late tomorrow evening or so early Sunday morning that the royals could attend at the Octave mass at 10.30. It is the closing of 350th Octave and the Pope is sending Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, archbishop of Cologne, as his special envoy at the closing of the Octave of Our Lady Consoler.

Victoria held a great speech to her father, she said among other things:
"In your speech after the tsunami disaster, you said you know what it means not to have a father. I want to say to you, I know what it means to have a father. A father who serves as a role model and support. Upright and experienced, You are a source of peace and security, trust and warmth.
And on summers on Öland, with fishing nets which were emptied, to sit there in the boat with you dad, is one of my finest memories".
H.K.H. Kronprinsessan Victorias tal vid mottagningen på Nordiska museet, fredagen den 29 april 2016 - Sveriges Kungahus
