It was not really as Johan T Lindwall and Expressen expected. What a surprise! It is pretty much the same as the 60th Birthday, and I'm glad that I had right about the Gala dinner in the Hall of State. I din't think the dinner will be a private thing, they should have chosen a different venue in that case.

So the event in the Nordic Museum on Friday 29 will be a concert. I am curious as to which event will have tiaras and all the big glitter.
What do you think, will they publish a guestlist shortly before the gala events or will we just have to wait and see who arrives?

Interesting that they Conert will be at the Nordic Museum and not at the Opera or Concert Hall.
Dont't thiink that the Concert will be white tie. As far as i remember the SRF never had two white tie Events fior similar occasions so i espect the Concert to be black tie and the Banquet to be white tie. Pity that they don't follow the danish Example to have black tie with tiaras for such occasions.

What a nice program :) it's actually bigger than i was expecting :)

I think we can expect the concert at the Nordic Museum, the Te Deum, The Changing of the Guard, the Choral program from the Lion Slope and the (horse?) procession to the City Hall to be broadcasted.

The concert on Friday will by all likelyhood be Black Tie and the banquet on Saturday evening will ofcourse be White Tie.

I don't think the gala banquet will be live broadcasted. They are usually not in Sweden and on the Royal website it states "only photopool" for the press for the lunch and banquet wich usually means that those "photopools" will be the only opportunities for the press to take any pictures while most of the other activities have "photo option" wich means that tv will likely be there too. But i know from sources on Swedish television that there have been talks about to show the speeches. Many was very dissapointed that nothing from the banquet, not even the Crown Princess speech to the King was shown at all when he turned 60.

We gotta wait and see how it turns out.

A (Royal and Presidential) guest list will likely be published during that week.

If I remember correctly from the banquet on the occasion of the Kings fiftieth birthday at least the arriving and greeting of the guests as well as the Queens speech was televised.

how exciting - a big royal gathering! does anyone have the guest list of royals who attended the 60th birthday celebrations? it may give us an idea on who to expect! :)

i guess since it's in april it's quite likely that sofia won't attend, being close to delivering or soon after becoming a mom! i guess that carl philip will attend in any case.

I don't have the guestlist, but in the picture that was posted here the royals in attendance were: King Harald and Queen Sonja; Queen Beatrix; King Albert and Queen Paola; Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa; and Prince Hans-Adam. There were no representatives from the Uk, Spain, Denmark and Monaco in the picture.

The birth of Sofia's baby is cutting it close to CG's 70th birthday party. The Hellqvists are expected to attend the celebrations, so the baby may be coming in early April.

I would think her parents would still be invited even if she was unable to attend.

If Sofia plans to attend, she better hope baby comes earlier in the month. I doubt she will be too anxious to attend some of these events if the baby comes too late. Kind of like Victoria cancelling victoriadagen.

As far as i remember

Norway : The King and and Queen, The Crown Prince and Crown Princess, Märtha and Ari

Denmark : (self proclaimed) King Henrik and Crown Princess Mary. Queen Margrethe was to attend but became ill and had to stay home

The finnish and icelandic presidential couples

Belgium : King Albert and Queen Paola

Netherlands : The usual trio (Bea, W-A and Max)

Luxembourg : Henri, M-T and Gulliaume

Lichtenstein : H-A

And many related non-reigning royals

If i remember correctly UK and Spain was only represented by their ambassadors

King Juan Carlos and queen Sofia attended at the private 60th birthday party on 29th April 2006, but not at the actual birthday the 30th.

UK was only represented by their ambassador and i remember it caused a hell of a debate in Swedish media

i hope that means this time felipe and letizia will attend, although i think it's highly unlikely and most likely that they send sofia.

It will also depend on who will be invited. The new monarchs from the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain or the former monarchs who would be more in the age of the birthday boy.

Prince Albert II of Monaco also attended the King's 60th birthday. He went to the party on the 29th but I havn't seen any pictures of him at the white tie event the following evening. He was, of course, unmarried then and may not have wanted to attend 2 parties on his own but his presence 10 years ago bodes well for him and the Princess receiving an invite to this celebration as well. If they do attend I hope it will be to both events this time as I'd love to see Charlene in her tiara and order for the first time.

I am pretty sure that the current monarchs of the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain will be invited, as they were to Queen Margrethe II's 75th birthday gala dinner. As it is an official event, invitations should be sent to the actual Heads of State, regardless of how close they are in age to Carl Gustaf.

I think that the question is not only who receives an invitation, but also who accepts the invitation. A lot depends on whether there are other important engagements or not. In 2006 many countries were represented by two generations of royals, the same could happen now. Only that for some it's not monarch and heir, but monarchs and former monarch. Only that Albert and Paola probably won't be there because of health reasons. JC hasn't attended anything for many years. But Sofia and Beatrix might be there together with the new monarchs. At least I hops so!

I don't have a complete guest list either, and as usual I'm guilty of only cataloging the tiara-wearing ladies. But at the 60th BD there many interesting royals, apart from the usual reigning monarchs and heirs. Eg. there were Princess Astrid of Norway, the Konstantin, Anne-Marie, Pavlos and MC of Greece, Prince and Princess Hassan of Jordan with their son and daughter-in-law, Princess Margarita of Romania, the Duke and Duchess of Braganca, Prince Leopold and Princess Ursula of Bavaria, and some of the Bernadotte Counts and Countesses.

Princess Takamado from Japan attended the weddings of CP and Madeleine, so maybe she'll be invited to the birthday as well? I wouldn't be surprised to see Prince Hubertus und Princess Kelly of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha as well.

The guest list, for the gala diner on April 30th, is available at the website of the Royal Court, the language is a strange mix of English and Swedish. I have translated the royal and presidential guests, not the (extended) Swedish Royal Family.

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.
