Kungens tal till folket | SVT Play
A quick and rough translation of the kings speech, with the reservation that some of it was quite strange in swedish as well :-)

"First and foremost, thanks for the lovely words. And dear people of Stockholm, thanks for the fantastic toast you've just given me today. It feels wonderful, it feels warm, and it's something I'll remember for the rest of my life.

As you know (it was mentioned), the queen and I have travelled all over Sweden, from north to south, and visited all counties - 21 of them - and it's been very enriching to me, and I'm sure it's been as exciting for the queen as well. We've had the possibilty to visit and meet many people all over Sweden, and that was amazingly wonderful for us to do. But now we're in Stockholm, and we're in front of the castle, the castle in the middle of town! That's what's important right now.

I would like to congratulate the city of Stockholm, who had the energy to arrange this party and later on the water games, which I understand will come later today. Also a nice addition to guild and create Stockholm, Stockholm at it's best. Stockholm is a wonderful city to live and work in. But we shouldn't forget about the rest of our long and fantastic beautiful Sweden that the queen and I, and many others, have experienced during the months when we've travelled.

But now, dear friends, dear Stockholmers... yes.... we've promised much, I've promised much also during the years, but this is for real: I invite all of you to a music and dance party at the palace courtyard. Everyone is now welcome. Bring your dancing shoes. Cheers!"

Why the queen must always have these terribly shiny outfits... Daniel congratulated Victoria right after her fine speech.
Princess Margaretha and princess Christina with Tord Magnuson are also attending. And of course Carl Philip, Madeleine and Chris.
There are 500 guests at the reception.

Loved Silvia's outfit, although I'm not a big fan of the shiny fabrics she seems to favor. I wished that both Victoria and Madeleine had selected brighter and more festive colors.

Any idea why only two of the King's sisters -- Margarethe and Christina -- attended?

To me as a Finn the dark colours are the festive colours. Bright colours aren't festive to me. I'm so glad that Victoria and Madeleine chose those.
It hadn't been said anywhere that the king's sisters would attend at every event. Princesses Désirée and Christina attended on Friday and Saturday, all sisters attended on Sunday and now princesses Margaretha and Christina attended today.

It was a good speech, for mostly for her father but also for the king of Sweden. And I'm glad that she remembered her mother also at her speech.

Gallery, it will be updated.

But mom Silvia highlighted in the speech.
- By your side, you've had our mother. As the Queen and wife, she has tirelessly given you her wise and strong support, says Victoria, who also spoke for his siblings.
- Dear Dad, you are my and my siblings' beloved father, and a very popular grandfather. As monarch is you, Your Majesty, my role model. Once it comes time, I will humbly and proudly bring ministry into the future.


LOVE it..
Amazing speech
