Expressen about the queen's life and photos of her clothes
Silvias fantastiska kläder genom åren Mode Modenyheter Modereportage Trender Tips Expressen

Expresssen had a live-TV about the queen, Johan T Lindwall was at the studio and answered to questions.
Lindwall said that it is a tradition in big birthdays that the whole royal gathered this morning to congratulate the queen. And in the evening will be a party.
People weren interviewed in Stockholm, most of them said that the queen does a good work. One man said that the queen should have done more for poor people. Lindwall said that he thinks that the king is bothered that the queen is much more popular among the people than him. The queen understands that the children and their parents may have waited for hours to give flowers to her, and it takes just so little of her to greet them and take the flowers. But the king just goes on. The queen makes the boss in the family. The queen is now much happier than a couple of years ago when the controversial book about the king was published, the queen felt humiliated and she didn't speak to the king for a long time. Now they have found each other again, and Estelle is very important for the queen. The positive publicity of Victoria and Daniel took the attention away from the king and queen when they had difficult times. The queen loves opera very much, but she likes also pop tunes, Tomas Ledin is one of her favourites.

Wow! those were some *very* candid remarks by this mr Lindwall.. very surprised that this was made public (i'm referring to things like that she didn't speak to the king for a while).

If I am thinking about a (posible future) Princess at the Nobels, a Tiara on her head, the royal jewels on her neck and this Tattoo underneath, I am getting severe headache.
So I relly, really really hope, that this one will dissappear.... it is about tim now!

Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip, Madeleine and Chris arrived to Drottningholm in the afternoon. Annika Sönnerberg from the press department said that there isn't going to be any big celebration, just a party with family and private friends.

I'm watching the concert on my TV. Victoria was singing along with Tomas Ledin... Tomas Ledin and Peter Jöback, as a Finn I envy the Swedes to have them.

This concert is pure awesomeness. I am in tears from laughing at the funny parts and crying at the sweet spots. :) I am also transcribing it if anyone is interested in reading what was said.

I have a transcript of the concert typed up if anyone is interested. It includes a rough translation.

I liked some parts of the concert and some I didn't like at all. All children performers were great. The main thing at the concert was that the male singers beat the women 100-0. Peter Jöback and Tomas Ledin are fantastic, they are born to the stage. That energy what 61-year-old Ledin has, wow! Jöbacks "Vem ser ett barn" from Chess has great words, a very serious song. I have never before heard John Lundvik, he became one of my favourites. You raise me up was great. A Felicidade and Bohemian Rhapsody could have been left off, they weren't any highlights at all. If they wanted to hint to the Queen's brazilian roots, there are much better songs. She's a Lady/Can't take my eyes off you/Get ready with four male singers was a good choice. And to hear someone else than Abba singing the Dancing Queen gives not a good feeling.
This concert was better than the king's concert in September, since they had put so much time and energy to this, there were so many joint numbers which took time to rehearse.
