Ideally, I'd love for both GD and HGD couples to attend but I really hope Maria Teresa is able to go. Perhaps her fear of flying has diminished or she'll have a long drive to Sweden.

They have also the Octave Procession on the next day where there is a Mass early in the Day.

Good point. I didn't realize the Closing of Octave is on May 1st this year. Perhaps the Luxembourgs will only attend the 29th or send one couple to Sweden while the other stays home for Octave.

I think it likely Stephanie and Gui will be sent. With MT's fear of flying and the procession on Sunday, I don't see her and Henri going.

Don't know how early the first Mass is but i hope that there is perhaps a chance that they will fly back in the morning. The procession and another Mass is in the afternoon.

Maybe Henri and Maria Theresa will attend on April 29 (if there are royals invited to the concert on 29:th) and then travel back home while Gulliaume and Stephanie travels to Sweden on April 30 ?

I think that the 70th birthday gala dinner will be quite grand, thinking of the venue is the Hall of State. So the guest list will probably be more like the 50th birthday or the Crown Princess Couple's wedding, with a big turnout of sovereigns, heirs and former sovereigns.
I think we can expect a large turnout of royals but also a larger than usual turnout of personal friends and relatives.

As they have choosen to be in the state hall for the banquet i guess we can expect around 500 guests there like it was during Victoria and Daniel's wedding.

But some of them where seated in the Appartements oif the Royal Orders.

How many guests can be seated in the Hall of State. I think the only other Banquet who took plsce there apart from Victoria's Wedding was the King's 50th birthday but i think then they tables where placed different then at the Wedding.

I don't know how many people who are allowed to be in "Rikssalen" at the same time.

Yes i also think the Kings 50:th birthday banquet was the only other banquet there, atleast during this reign.
There was one long table in the middle then and round tables on each sides. By looking at the pictures from Victorias wedding i think it lookes like there was much more people there in 2010. But i may be wrong...

According to the royal court website, there were 558 guests at the wedding dinner of Victoria and Daniel. In addition to the Hall of State, three of the Apartments of the Orders of Chivalry were also used for the dinner, there wasn't enough room for the guests at the Hall of State.
At the Hall of State were round tables and the long table of honour for 98 guests.

Svd tells at their article that there were 38 round tables.
”Jag älskar dig Victoria” _ SvD

From this photo we can see that the round tables were for 8 guests:

Another photo from the dinner
http://imageupper.com/i/?S0300010020...66401852212479

So, 38 tables * 8 guests + 98 guests at the long table = 402 guests at the Hall of State (and the rest at the Apartments of the Orders of Chivalry).

And here is a photo from the King's 50th birthday dinner at the Hall of State

Well, they did attend Queen Margrethe's 75th birthday. So there is hope.

Now I'm just really waiting for the Royal Court to release a jubilee monogram/logo and special website for the event. I thought that would come at the same time as the press release on the program.

But there wasn't the political instability in Spain then as there is now! King Felipe and Queen Letizia have not travelled away from Spain since the political crisis/negotiations started - as a matter of fact, their foreign trips have been cancelled.

If there is still a political crisis in Spain on April 30, i don't think it is a good idea that Felipe and Letizia attends when they have recently cancelled a
State visit to UK.

Queen Sofia may attend or Spain may be represented by their ambassador.

Svensk Damtidning tells that the invitations are out to the king's birthday celebrations, they have a photo of the invitations.
Inbjudan är ute – så blir kungens stora fest _ Svensk Damtidning
Translation

Aftonbladet's royal expert Jenny Alexandersson has photos of the invitations at her blog too. From the photo we can see that the dress code on Friday 29th at the concert and reception after that at Nordiska Museet is "mörk kostym" = dark suit. Dress code at Te Deum on Saturday 30th May is dark suit. And the dress code to the banquet and dance on Saturday 30th May at 19.30 at the Royal Palace is "smoking" = black tie.

A state visit is a political event, CG's birthday is a private event, would not even be listed on the official agenda. If they don't attend, I doubt its due to the political limbo.
