I think Princess Beatrix (godmother of Princess Victoria), King Willem-Alexander (godfather of Princess Estelle), Queen Máxima and maybe Princess Catharina-Amalia (goddaughter and bridesgirl of Princess Victoria) will attend.

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?
That is thinking that Sofia was not fully aware of what her husband had done, for years. She comes from the generation of royal women who turned a blind eye (and were raised to) when their husbands had affairs. I find it very unlikely that these were shocking revelations to anyone but the public. The couple has seemed happy enough when they have appeared in public since abdication.

It was more than just rumours. Camilla Hennemark gave an interview about their relationship. What more confirmation do you need?

The court just updated their calendar. The king and queen have been listed to attend at this evening's Baltic Sea seminar. Now prince Daniel and prince Carl Philip were added to attend at the seminar too.
Kalender - Sveriges Kungahus

Johan T Lindwall has contacted Margareta Thorgren about if the children attend at the celebrations (Estelle made her public debut at the king's birthday in 2012).
Will the king's 70th birthday - grandfather's big day be a debut for Oscar?
- There is nothing we communicate in advance or have information about, says Margareta Thorgren.
But are you planning for the little prince to be included on the official celebration in the courtyard?
- There is enough time in cases where such a decision is taken, says Thorgren.
That the very last little prince - Alexander - would make his debut on the king's birthday appears to be in principle unreasonable.
- We have no information about that either, says Thorgren.
But we can count with Princess Estelle, Princess Leonore and Prince Nicolas. They have previously been involved in such official occasions. In all cases, the princesses start getting real habit to take over the show on grandpa's birthday party. In all cases Estelle ...
Party all week and a number of things that take place to celebrate the king. But the big party is on Saturday and it is in the evening at the Royal Palace. Since it is highly private and no cameras allowed inside the premises.
- It is private and it is also where the birthday speeches are held, says Margareta Thorgren.

Aftonbladet writes about the birthday week, the celebrations start today.
The bill for the festivities becomes official next year.
- We have no estimate we go out with. Certainly there are plans we work for but there is nothing we go out with, says Jan Lindman, treasurer at the court.
According to the court Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's wedding cost around SEK 17 million, while Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill's wedding went off at about 10 million. The price tag for Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia's wedding is not yet known but will be published shortly, when the court will present the annual report for 2015.
The celebration for the king is expected to cost less.
- We believe that this will be more restrained than a wedding, says Jan Lindman.
So it is more expensive to arrange a royal wedding than a 70-year celebration for the King?
- Yes. In this context, we always make an assessment of what are official costs, ie the costs included in the King's task and what might be private costs.
This week's major feast days are Friday and Saturday.
- On Friday, an event is held for the official Sweden at the Nordic Museum, which primarily will be considered an official event. The banquet on Saturday will increasingly become a private issue, says Lindman.
Also the police has costs of the king's birthday.
- We have known for a long time that the king turns 70 years and therefore we have been able to plan. We know for example that it will take some escorts and then we plan working hours for it, says Kjell Lindgren, spokesperson at Stockholm police.
- If something unknown happens, it can cause additional costs, but my assessment is that the additional costs should not be so great, he says.
For the City of Stockholm the price tag is at least SEK 150 000, the city decided to give the king a choral tribute as a present.
Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's wedding in 2010
Total cost of SEK 17 million.
The grant: SEK 10 million (This was an additional allocation from the state).
Private costs: SEK 7 million.
Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill's wedding in 2013
Total cost of SEK 10 million.
The grant: SEK 4 million.
Private costs: SEK 6 million.

Obviously the security will be an especially important thing this week.
Iraqi security services claim a group of seven to eight Isis fighters have made their way to Sweden and are planning to strike against civilian targets in Stockholm, Expressen reports.

When I read through all this I am thinking, what will be done when CG will celebrate his 75th or 80th birthday. Wow, the nordic RF's really know how to celebrate.

The court has updated their calendar: Sofia's name has been taken away from the participants on Friday evening's concert, Saturday's lunch at the City Hall and the banquet at the Royal Palace.
According to the calendar she will attend on Saturday at Te Deum, the celebration at the Courtyard and at the Choral Tribute.
Kalender - Sveriges Kungahus

Article about the seminar at the court website, the king said at his thank you speech:
"As you may be aware, I have been involved in various issues relating to the Baltic Sea for many years. It is therefore a great honour and a pleasure that this evening's performance to mark my birthday should be about the Baltic Sea. The performance has shown us what our inland sea has meant for commerce and politics, for science and the arts, and for people and the environment, both in Sweden and in our neighbouring countries.
"The Baltic Sea has largely shaped our nation into what it is today. And we are now all involved in shaping its future. This is a great responsibility."
The King and Queen attend An Evening about the Baltic Sea – Hopefulness and Threats - Sveriges Kungahus

The seminar is broadcasted on Saturday 30 April at 11:40 at Kunskapskanalen / UR Samtiden.

As Sofia gave birth only a week ago, then its understandable that there will be some changes on her schedule.

Expressen has asked from Margareta Thorgren about the security.
The news that seven to eight IS terrorists have entered in Sweden comes in the middle of the preparations for the king's 70th anniversary at the Royal Palace on Saturday.
The court is secretive about the safety measures to be taken now before the grand celebration.
What information has the court got on this?
- You can turn to the police with the questions. We don't comment on security issues in general or the information, says Margareta Thorgren.
Have any kind of additional measures been taken on the king's birthday?
- It is always so that there is a security protection. It is the police who makes the assessments. There is always a security protection around the royal family.
But there are some extra precautions?
- There is nothing I can comment, says Thorgren.
The birthday celebrations began on Monday evening at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in central Stockholm.
The performance was guarded with a massive police group. First arrived three buses with uniformed police officers who checked that there were no parked cars close to the theater, where the Royal couple and the princes were to arrive. One hour before arrival there were also many civilian police officers on the spot.
It is not clear whether the large amount of polices had a connection with the current data on an IS-threat to Sweden. The policemen Express talked with didn't want to give the reason for the increased police coverage. Ann-Christine Jernberg from the court had no information about it either.
The King continues his celebrations on Tuesday evening at a concert at the Royal Chapel. According to the court only the king and queen will attend.
Thorgren is very secretive about if the security has now been tightened around the royal family after the alarm about the IS terrorists:
- We don't comment on security issues, she says shortly.

Of course there would be an uptick in security - a week long celebrations of the king's birthday with crowned & elected heads attending. With ISIS infiltrating Sweden all the more reason.

There is, as you've said, always increased security when there's a gathering of politicians, royalty or other celebrities. I'm sure the police has a close eye on this no matter what.

But I wouldn't say that ISIS is "infiltrating Sweden". There are intelligence information about possible terrorist plans, yes. But they are very specific, talking about 7-8 people might have come here to carry out attacs. Not that ISIS in general is taking over Sweden. And there is also talk about targeting civilians - that would mean the high profile royalty (and similar groups) aren't their targets anyway.

All in all, I'm sure that the police is doing as much as they can to keep us safe, not just here in Sweden. A free and open society is always vulnerable, but that's also the price you pay for being a free and open society.

Royals might not be the targets for the ISIS people that have come to Sweden. But on Saturday there is probably a lot of civilians at the surroundings of the Royal Palace and at the procession route to see the Royal Family.

We will see if there will be even more people than in September 2013
