Wonderful photos, purple_platinum. Thank you! :) I'm really excited about this visit, and I hope there will be something on the news about their visit. It seems that whenever some member of a Royal Family who is not Crown Princess Mary or Frederik, or a member of the British RF, they don't get noticed. Silvia looks fantastic! No offence to our Prime Minister's wife, but she really puts Janette to shame.

PM welcomes Swedish royals to Canberra
Monday Nov 7 13:01 AEST

Prime Minister John Howard welcomed the King and Queen of Sweden to Parliament House as they began a six-day tour of Australia.

The King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf, and Queen Silvia arrived in Sydney on Sunday night before flying into Canberra on Monday morning.

Thankyou purple platinum and Danielle for the photos! I love Silvias hat. I'm sure by the looks of it we will be getting a good look at some good European fashion while she is here in Australia!

By the way, the plane they got off looks like the one the PM John Howard uses.

Wow, I didn't know they were going to have a 21-gun salute. Impressive! Well, for Australia it is.

SBS World News Australia had a report on the visit including the king and queens view on Australia and the environment (Australia refuses to sign the Kyoto Protocol). For anyone who missed it, you can probably catch it on the 9:30 bulletin, its towards the end of the news. I'm gonna try and tape it this time!

Not to be political here, but I hope Sweden puts pressure on Mr. Howard. The reasons for not signing it [Kyoto Agreement] are just ridiculous and selfish! I missed the news, but hopefully I'll see the bulletin as well. :)
