I do love the way Queen Silvia looks tonight despite the fact that she's wearing a repeat. The color looks fabulous on her. I also think the Victoria looks quite chic -- love her hair and I wish she would wear it this way more often rather than the severe, pulled back pony tail. As for Madeleine -- she looks radiant and wonderful. Although, I have to say that she looks a bit more than 3 months pregnant.

The chief editor Roger Lundgren tells on another forum that on Friday at the exhibition he spoke with Victoria and Daniel came up to them and said: Victoria we have to go home now. The nanny has to leave Haga.

Yes, and also Huey Lewis and Michael Jackson, along with lots of other stuff. Great concert - I hope that everyone finds time to watch it. And it sure seems like the king and the rest of his family and the audience are enjoying themselves

For me the best at the concert was the host of the evening: Stefan Forsberg, Executive & Artistic Director of the Concert Hall. He is superb, he was that already at the concert for Victoria and Daniel 3 years ago. I very glad that I understand swedish and what he told during the concert.
Some singers I like a lot and some I don't like at all. But it was a good concert and the king and the rest of the royal family seemed to have a very good time.

Aftonbladet has a few photos from the concert

Expressen's fashion expert Emma Danielsson gives Madeleine 2 points/5 and Victoria 4 points/5.

I agree, LadyFinn - Stefan Forsberg is such a pro! He really knows the art of hosting a concert and make it even more enjoyable for the audience.

Wonderful concert. Amazing host. So much love in the air. I like how the queen looked tenderly at her husband when the "theme" was the two of them and how she stroked his arm at the end of the male opera singers song just as he sings "jag älskar dig" (= I love you). Very sweet. Very nice evening.

I think the dress is fooling you. She barely has a tummy at all.

I thought Victoria & Madeleine looked amazing. I can't wait to see what they wear for the dinner tomorrow!

On Sunday there isn't any dinner, but Te Deum thanksgiving service at the Royal Chapel at 12.00 (the heads of state of Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland attend), a private lunch at the Royal Palace for about 60 guests and the City of Stockholm's celebration at the Inner Courtyard of Royal Palace at 15.00.
And in the evening the royal family attends at Daniel's private birthday party at the Haga Palace.

The royal family had fun

technically it is a dinner as I'm assuming there will be food? Obviously it's not some super tiara gala, but it's still what I'd consider a dinner. but that's really just semantics.

my point stands, I look forward to seeing what they wear.

Not to mention one of my all time favourite songs, You'll Never Walk Alone, which was done beautifully by the lady who performed it. :)

I missed the first ten or fifteen minutes, but the rest of what I was wonderful and very enjoyable. The SRF certainly looked to be having a ball. There were a couple of times where you could see Queen Silvia bopping her head w/the music. :). Lovely to see Chris there and I love the picture of him helping Madeleine down some stairs. The look on his face says it all IMO.

Looking forward to tomorrow's events.

Stefan Forsberg said that he is sure that they all remember the exciting feeling to be in love. And how nervous you were when your beloved comes for the first time to your home, which had to be cleaned up. Forsberg said that never before his 19 square meter apartment had looked so clean. And he is curious how it was when the queen for the first time came to the king's home (queen's gesture). That first time comes sometimes. What did the king say when they drove to courtyard, did he say "Welcome to my home, my 622 rooms and kitchen"? And maybe the king needed a little cheese and bisquits, when the queen was checking the palace and came back seven hours later. Well, it doesn't matter what title you have or where and how you live, because love treats us all equally generously.
