Given the political crisis in Spain, it would be inappropriate for King Felipe VI to attend. I guess King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia were the obvious replacements.

I think its fine that the old Kings attend. Its their generation anyway and the SRF is not as friendly as the nordic RFs among themselves what makes the younger generation attend, too.

Juan Carlos and Sofia have always had a good relationship with Silvia and Carl Gustaf. I remember that in the book that Queen Silvia wrote about her life back in the 90's, she had many photos of their state visits and captioned it saying that they got along very well and spent a lot of time laughing. She was able to converse with them in Spanish and she and JC have the same sense of humor.

Crown princess Margareta and prince Radu will attend at the birthday celebrations. They have also other events in Sweden, for instance Margareta visits the Red Cross.

There will be a number of photo and media positions in connection to the celebrations of The King’s 70th birthday. The celebrations start on Monday April 25, and end on April 30.

I am happy JC and Sofia are going. It would be nice to see Paola/Alberta and Beatrix go as well. For a birthday, makes sense for his contemporaries to attend.

Yes it would be great to see Albert,Paola and Beatrix all in attendance ,King Juan Carlos rarely attended these events when he was monarch so its nice to see his name on the list.

Philippe and Mathilde are supposed to attend, so it is unlikely that Albert and Paola will go too. We don't know yet who will represent the Netherlands, so I guess Beatrix is still a possibility.

10 years for the 60th birthday celebrations both Albert and Paola and Philippe and Mathilde attended. But i think it is unlikely that Albert and Paola attend this year as the have almost no offical Events and also seem to have some health problems.
For the Netherlands i think it is very well possible that Willem-Alexander and Maxima and Beatrix attend.
It is also not known yet whio will attend from Luxembourg an if Monaco will be represented.

There is nothing on the Dutch royal calender for the last days of April, so I suspect WA ad Máxima will go, perhaps together with Beatrix. Queen Juliana also went to the big birthdays of king Carl Gustav after her abdication.

It will be funny to see these two walking together like an old couple, after everything that has come to light about this marriage. Is this the first outing together after the abdication?

No. They attended the funerals of Queen Fabiola, the Duchess of Alba and the Duke of Calabria and Kardam of Bulgaria.

No more funny than seeing Carl Gustav and Silvia together after everything that has come to light about their marriage.

A photo book ”Carl XVI Gustaf 70 år i bilder” was published earlier this year in connection to king Carl Gustaf's 70th birthday.

You seem not follow the couple very closely. There were plenty of occasions with the two of them together and they seem happier than ever.
