Very lovely, we should make a thread "warm words by royals" and this would be right at the top...

No, but they did attend the festivities for the 40th birthdays of their son-in-law and their daughter, the three baptism and coming year will see the King celebrating his 50th birthday, which will probably see them too.

The political problems from the period during the military junta, the long distance (litterally the other side of the world, the other hemipshere) and the frail health of the father are obstacles for more public appearances. Frau Gösta von Amsberg Freiin von dem Bussche-Haddenhausen (the mother of Prince Claus), Princess Armgard von Lippe-Biesterfeld Freiin von Sierstorpff-Cramm and her younger son Prince Aschwin were seen, bit also only during bigger private festivities.

that's not true everywhere. letizia's parents, grandmother and aunt, for example, are invited to the princess of asturias awards, for example, and have been attending every year since she married into the RF. so do the middletons.

very sweet words by victoria. did any of the children make a short speech?

it seems like it was a beautiful evening in stockholm too :) it is always funny to see some royals dressed in very heavy winter clothes (silvia and her fur coat) and some royals in short sleeves, like victoria, braving the weather. also interesting to see that madeleine wore a short skirt, and the queen a long one, with victoria opting for something in the middle.

Government formation talks have been now suspended in Spain. The King's only role left until the new parliament convenes after the elections is to sign the royal decree dissolving the Congress of Deputies, which will be done on May 2, which is the constitutional deadline. I don't see any constitutional reason then why Felipe VI couldn't be in Sweden on Saturday and return to Spain the day after, but it is not up to me to question why the King of Spain decided not to attend.

There is a difference between attending events related to your son's/daughter's and his/her royal consort's nuclear family and attending events related to the monarch who happens to be your son's or daughter's father or mother-in-law. King Carl XVI Gustaf seems to be the only monarch who tries to include his daughter-in-law's or his sons-in-law's families in his official birthday celebrations. As I said, I can't recall Queen Beatrix, or Queen Margrethe II, or Queen Elizabeth II doing that. I can't tell about King Juan Carlos or King Harald V for lack of knowledge.

TV4 Play has a live broadcast about the king's birthday at their News morning from 07.50 until 13.30.
Nyhetsmorgon - Streama TV4 Play

SVT Play's "official" birthday program starts in 09.45 and ends about 13.45, the link to live broadcast:
Kung Carl XVI Gustaf 70 år _ SVT Play

SVT shows in the evening 20.00-21.00 a Summary of the day's celebration at the Royal Palace. The Government and Parliament deliver presents, guests arrive at the evening banquet.
And at 21.00-22.00 Yesterday's concert at Nordiska Museet.
These are also put to SVT Play.

42 Swedish flags were hoisted at the wharf to mark the king's birthday (because 42 countries take part at the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm after a couple of weeks).

The rhetorician experts are praising Victoria's speech yesterday evening
Kronprinsessan Victorias tal till Kungen hyllas av experter _ Nyheter _ Expressen
Translation

Ebbas blogg _ Ebba Kleberg von Sydow » Wow, Victoria – wow!

Operakällaren's chef and Court Restaurateur Stefano Catenacci and his team prepare the dinner.
- I can not reveal what it will be for the menu but I can say that there will be a three-course menu that goes in the characters of spring. Then the king has own wishes for what he wants.
The King has been very involved?
- They are always involved. I suggest a menu but it's his party and he will decide. Then there is an evening snack too.
But it does not seem to have been a desire for hot dogs for the evening snack?
- No, it will not be, says Stefano Catenacci, laughing.
There will be the Abba-show from "Mamma Mia! The Party" and, the band of the evening will be Cotton Club, which performed at Victoria's and Daniel's wedding.

I'm not sure how other economic missions are planned but this mission begins with a visit to the Canton Fair so Luxembourg's team can't do much about the dates, see Trade mission to China | Luxembourg For Business

Although the fair opened in mid-April, it appears the government decided Phase 3 (running May 1-5) was the best start for the trip.

TV2 study just mentioned that from Denmark only Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte participating in 'Te Duem' this morning.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary has had some very busy days the last days - they landed yesterday in DK after official trips abroad and had also events all day in Denmark too - they will encounter later in the day.
