According to the court website, at 17.00 swedish time. It seems that 17.00 is the photopool, since at the invitation stands 17.30-19.00 swedish time.

Princess Christina inaugurates the exhibition. Her husband Tord Magnuson is also there. And princess Désirée and her husband baron Niclas Silfverschiöld.

Photo special from Dagens Nyheter about the king 40 years on the throne
Bildspecial Kungen 40 år på tronen - DN.SE

The king in the documentary which is shown on SVT on Sunday evening:
He occasionally meets seniors around the country. But to sift the ranks and abdicate is not up to date:
- It's amazingly lot to do still so I don't see any end to it yet. I will not be a pensioner, unfortunately. I have fun on my way. I haven't thought of stopping now, but look forward with confidence to the future. It will be exciting. I am still insanely curious, says the King.
Meanwhile, on the throne, he has also been noted for a series of statements, including the Brunei dictator, wolf hunting and the Greek economy. Asked if he regrets anything he says:
- No, not a thing. Not a thing. On the contrary, then you haven't understood the meaning and historical context of the context in which I expressed my views on. One reads something else that can fit into someone else's agenda. It is so simple to do it, it can always be done.
The day he stops is the day he passes away. And Crown Princess Victoria takes over. The King says that they have not discussed the subject, but he makes yet a greeting:
- I want to wish her ​​good luck. And say that I tend to my son and other athletes: That they should have fun. By that I mean that they shouldn't take it so they vomit, but they'll save a bit so that it's fun. And then life is always a little softer.

A very warm, personal and touching speech by Princess Christina :) I think everyone had tears in the eyes by the end. I hope a translated text exists somewhere so even the non swedish speakers on the board can understand.

Här är kungens 40 år på tronen Stoppa Pressarna

Expressen-TV sends live from the red carpet the arrivals to the dinner today at 16.30 and to the concert at 19.00. They will put the links to their website later.

Aftonbladet's royal reporter Jenny Alexandersson writes at her blog that there is a lot of feelings around the king's jubileum.
Having a father who has been Sweden's head of state for 40 years brought a lot of emotions for Victoria yesterday. For the royal family, this is about so much more than just celebrate a family member who served in the job for four decades. For them the work is a mission in life, a job that you never leave the office without a responsibility that remains with them virtually around the clock. The King is still king even when he is on vacation and Victoria is still the crown princess when she pulls the stroller in the Haga Park. Princess Christina touched whole family with her speech by talking about the responsibility that rests on the king's shoulders, and about all that happens behind the royal scenes that the rest of us never see.
Victoria had a hard time holding back the tears and Daniel held her hand as they sat on the left stands.

It seems that Queen Silvia is the only royal woman wearing the family order -- neither Victoria nor Madeleine are wearing it. Why?

Maybe they hadn't discussed about it. I am disappointed that the queen wears the dress she had 2 weeks ago at the wedding of Gustaf Magnuson and Vicky Andrén, and she wore the dress also this summer at the birthday of duke Andreas in Germany.

I agree! A different outfit/dress would've been nicer for her to wear IMO.

Its great seeing Chris, I wonder how many of these events he will be attending. Madeleine looks quite happy with him around.

Chris attends today, tomorrow and on Tuesday at the events of the Opening of the Parliament. According to the court website he will not attend at the reception on Thursday.
