Summary of a lot of articles in Billed Bladet #18, 2016.

Now, I didn't follow the event, so this brief summary is based on locations rather chronology.
And as for the articles, see for yourselves here: https://app.box.com/s/ymtpq9lurq8s4503chulhifxfmq7gdzl

Lejonbacken - in front of the royal palace.
At around 12.15 when the SRF and their guests appeared on the terrace some 10-15.000 had gathered down below, including Sweden's largest choir under Carolina of Ugglas. The some 2.000 members sang three songs for the King, including Wild One.
That was followed by a general singing of the birthday song.
It was also here Victoria for the first time showed her new-born Oscar in a public setting. Wearing clothes from Lillelam and shoes from Livly, Oscar was pretty unimpressed though.
Ever the eager photographer Mary was seen standing behind King Carl Gustav and Queen Silvia snapping away.

The palace courtyard - the changing of the guards and flowers from children.
While grandpa Carl Gustaf was busy looking at soldiers and getting flowers from children, the family, including Estelle looked on. That was reasonably interesting, even though 30 minutes just standing around can be a little boring as a yawn revealed. But you can always clap to the music, they played ABBA so that was lively, or go for a tour of the family. So Estelle darted over to grandma Silvia and then on to aunt Madeleine and then aunt Sofia.
Even though QMII had been placed among the retired monarchs, Princess Beatrix and ex-King Juan Carlos and ex-Queen Sofia they seemed to have a cozy time. However while Estelle had no problems greeting ex-Queen Sofia, she was more reluctant when it came to ex-King Juan Carlos.
This was the first even the newly arrived M&F took part in.

Gala-dinner at the palace.
Carl Gustaf walked in with QMII by his side. She's not only a relative but also the most senior of royal guests.
The rest appeared to team up with their table partner.
Madeleine wearing a Elie Saab dress with Chris O-Neil.
Victoria, also wearing an Elie Saab dress and a clutch also from Elie Saab, arrived with Daniel and brother Carl Phillip.
Frederik arrived wit the Icelandic First Lady, Dorrit Moussaieff.
Mary wore her new hear-thingy by Charlotte Lyngaard - (And now I need a little help especially from those who can read Danish, because I have no idea what I am to write about now!) It's in two shades of gold with a few of the leaves made from Diamond-pave (?). Her earrings were made from rutil-quarts (?) and culture-pearls (?) encased in 18 carats of gold.
Benedikte wore a dress by Wichmann Couture.
Quen Mathilde a dress by Giorgio Armani Prive

The NRF were represented by Märtha Louise and Ari Behn, due to a tragic helicopter accident in Norway.

The late-night party at the palace.
After the dinner the guests proceeded to the ball-room Vita Havet (the White Sea) and then it was party! Which continued until 06.00 in the morning.
It was the ensemble from the ABBA show Mamma Mia who was in charge of the music, and very appropriate at least one original ABBA member was present.
When they didn't play, Cotton Club took over.
The DJ was a Anders Wickmann, who has been a DJ at SRF parties before.
The King went on stage and played air-guitar, electric air-guitar of course. Then he sang Diana Ross' Upside Down, clutching a trumpet in one of his hands. - That is when he wasn't busy taking a turn on the dance-floor with especially Queen Silvia.
Guests tweeted and said afterwards: "It's festive when the King play electric guitar. A fantastic party". - It was full throttle and it was a really cozy evening. It's really been fun"!

Te Deum.
Wearing a dress from Dolce & Gabbana, Victoria brought her husband and daughter to the service.

Prince Albert explained why his wife wasn't present: "Charlene is at home with the children". (Perhaps they are sick?)

Gala-show, Friday.
Madeleine wore a dress by Erdem. A clutch from Bottega Veneta and shoes from Marchesa.
Victoria wore a dress by H&M's Conscience-collection and shoes from Dolce & Gabbana.
Here Victoria have a speech: "Your Majesty, dear dad, 70 years ago you were born into the circle of your mother, father and four sisters at Haga. You were a long/dearly awaited child and the idyll was complete until tragedy struck the family. Your father perished in an accident and eventually you moved to Stockholm Slott. Time passes. Today a little prince and princess live at Haga. Your grandchildren Oscar and Estelle. Haga which means so much to our family-line has once more become a home.
You were only 27 years old, twelve years younger than me today, when you took over the throne. I can only speculate about how it must have felt to take over the task that had been your grandfather, King Gustaf VI Adolf, since 1950, in such a young age. To represent our country nationally and internationally as head of state as demanded by the office".

Dannebrog.
The members of the DRF who went to Sweden slept aboard the royal yacht Dannebrog, which went ahead to Stockholm. (And as such they also slept on Danish territory).
Benedikte arrived Friday afternoon and was received by the commanding officers at the gangway and got a bouquet of flowers as a little birthday present. It was her birthday that Friday.
Later Friday QMII arrived and naturally inspected the honor-guard lined up on the quarter deck.
While waiting for her sister Benedikte visited a number of local relatives and in the evening the two sister celebrated Benedikte's birthday with a dinner.
M&F arrived Saturday morning.

After the party M&F were seen leaving Dannebrog Sunday morning, no doubt after very little if any sleep.
While QMII and Benedikte left in the forenoon.

I wonder after looking at all these beautiful pictures, what type of man is King Carl? It appears he has a good relationship with his children, how about him and the Queen? If this is the correct thread, sorry

Too bad they didn't release a new family picture.

The family looked splendid and happy throughout all the celebrations.

I suspected that the rumour about a photo with the king and his grandchildren was just a rumour then. It certainly had something to do with queen Elizabeth's latest portrait ;-)

They flew. All four of them. There are several flights each day between Copenhagen and Stockholm. And QMII may have used an air force Challenger.

When the king and queen were in Malaysia at the Global Child Forum, they visited The Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum in Melaka. From Museum's Facebook:
"As His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf and Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden visited the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum yesterday, the King was presented with a "Bakul Siah" containing wheat vermicelli, rock sugar, eggs and a pair of red candles as a gesture of wishing Him a happy belated birthday as He turns 70 last Saturday. The royal couple was pleased when Baba William Chan handed over the surprise birthday gift to His Majesty. "

Svensk Damtidning wrote in their last week's issue, that according to information they had got, Leonore and Nicolas had stayed in London with their nanny. The whole family had returned from a holiday in Florida some days before, and Madeleine and Chris thought that there would be too bustle for the children (if they would have flown to Sweden).

Bunte has interviewed countess Sandra Bernadotte about the celebrations:
What are your birthday wishes for the Swedish king?
We as the family Bernadotte of Mainau congratulate His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden on his 70th birthday and wish him all the best and that he still can celebrate many birthdays.
Which moment of the birthday party you went particularly close to?
A poignant moment of the celebration was for me, as for many people who had come to the palace, the cheers to the birthday boy. There was sung and it was amazing to feel much joy and enthusiasm. Also HRH Prince Oscar Carl Olof was already there. It was a wonderful celebration.

Now, that would be a reasonable explanation on why the Madeleine's kids weren't there. I think the holiday in Florida could be right, as I noticed that Madeleine looked pretty tanned, even before her meeting for Childhood in the States.

Business owners in Sweden had the opportunity to offer their congratulations to The King in connection with his 70th birthday via participating in a fundraising effort for the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

The king and queen received the overall delegation on 28th April and the gift was handed over to HM from the business representatives in the form of a speech, performed by Jens Spendrup, and a binder with all donors. The Rector of the Royal College of Music was then able to express congratulations and thank the King for His decision to donate the funds raised to the College.
The donation will contribute to the completion of the future educational and research environments at the new campus, and the total currently stands at a total amount of just over 5 million SEK. As an acknowledgment of His Majesty the King the name of the large concert hall is from now on "Kungasalen" (The Kings Hall). The Royal College of Music looks forward to welcoming the royal couple after moving to new campus!
- The Donation to the Royal College of Music shows great confidence from His Majesty regarding the College's opportunities to train musicians and music teachers of the highest quality, says Cecilia Rydinger Alin.
