The photos are pure perfection. They'll go straight to my list of favourite royal portraits.

I don't like this photo very much. The photo manages to hide her personality and warmth because of the mat and dim lighting and the shadows. It gives a cold impression.And the chair is a totally unnecessecary accessory.

Queen Silvia is a beautiful woman, and these photos do not do her justice in my opinion. They are much too dark and show nothing of her personality.

Would anyone like to translate the video? It is a large task but I would love to hear her responses... I am getting my swedish learning supplies soon so I hope I will be able to stop asking for translations soon (within a few years probably).

I so agree with LF, the lighting is all wrong in the pictures, It hides half her face and is to dark, this does not look great for a royal birthday picture. QS is a very beautiful woman and this makes her look cold and old.

I love the pictures, especially love that suit on her. Didn't she wear that at Estelle's christening?

The interview is done very well, "man on the street" questions to the Queen that she watches on her computer and then responds. One question was asked in English and she responds in english. She has a beautiful voice and warm, thoughtful manner.

Madeleine has cold and is resting in bed according to the court, so she and Chris aren't at the photos.

I am kind of wondering if Madde is too vain to appear in official photos at this stage, looking presumably very big.

I am not too fond of the Queen's picture, the atmosphere is quite distant/cold and Silvia clings at the chair as if she needed it for stabilisation.

Annika Sönnerberg from the court press department told to Expressen that Madeleine is very, very cold and she is resting now so that she could attend at the remaining celebrations. Sönnerberg was asked if Chris is in Sweden, does he have cold too and why didn't he attend today. Sönnerberg said that Chris is in Sweden, he doesn't have cold and that it was the couple's decision that Chris didn't attend at the reception.
