Transcript of 6:30pm news SBS

SWEDISH ROYALS VISIT AUSTRALIA
The King and Queen of Sweden have arrived in Australia for a 6-day visit. While here, they will explore their interest in Australian art and history and the environment. And the royals have not ruled out questioning the Federal Government over its refusal to sign the Kyoto Protocol on global warming.

Hundreds of Australia's Swedish community turned out to welcome the royals as King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia touched down on Australian soil, greeted by the Prime Minister and Governor-General. and a 21-gun salute. The Swedish King inspected the Guard of Honour before being whisked away for a tour of the Australian War Memorial, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Then it was on to lunch at Parliament House with the Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader. The Prime Minister praised their two countries' warm relationship and trade links.
JOHN HOWARD, PRIME MINISTER: But there are many Australian businessmen and women who are very familiar with Swedish technology, Swedish ingenuity and Swedish scientific and medical research capacity.
The royal couple then toured some of Canberra's sites, including the National Museum, viewing Aboriginal artefacts. During the 6-day visit, the royals will meet Australian experts to discuss advances in medicine and biotechnology. But the Swedish King isn't saying whether he'll raise an issue close to his heart, that of global warming, with the Prime Minister.
KING CARL GUSTAF: Maybe, maybe not, I don't know, it depends. It depends on my mood. No, it depends who I'm talking to. And there's nothing sort of planned, it's more a general discussion. The royals have previously expressed their concerns to reporters in Sweden about Australia's refusal to sign the Kyoto Protocol. Tomorrow, they will attend a round table discussion on climate change and Australia's biodiversity at the Australian National University. They will also spend time in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and the Northern Territory over the following week.


So I guess we know what they're doing tomorrow, at least!

The queen looks beautiful by arrive at Canberra.
But the dress she is wear by the gala at evening looks not elegant. This dress she wear at Nobel-Gala at 10.12.1995. The has realy more wonderful dresses as this one.

OMG! Silvia really digs deep in the wardrobe after a dress, I mean 1995! c“mon she must have something newer (and better) than this to wear at a state visit. The only conclusion I can come up with is that she must be saving up for Victorias wedding next year

Thanks to all, who have posted pictures. IMO state visits or visits with an economical or social background to Australia are always well organised (from the Australians)...and an interesting mix between duty and fun.

It says they're coming to Sydney, but I still have no definite idea where they will be and if I am able to see them there or not, or on what day. :( I can't exactly camp outside Marie Bashir's office and follow her when she's having dinner with the King and Queen.

Why not Danielle? (kidding!):p I am surprised the Sweden Abroad Canberra website doesn't have much information. And I would have thought some of the newspapers would have where they are going to be since the point of the visit is to promote Swedish Australian relations.

I read in this article last week http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/...?oneclick=true that they would be attending an e-health conference in Sydney, so I did a bit of research and tracked it down to this conference & AGM:
http://www.hl7.org.au/2005-SYD.htm

It says that the conference is taking place on 8 & 9 November. Well, we know that they are still in Canberra today (am I right?), so they must be going there tomorrow.

Here is the Central Queensland University Sydney Campus, where the conference is taking place:

Thanks for the information. I doubt us 'plebs' would be allowed to attend the conference, and I'm sure I'd look like a bit of a loser if I stood outside holding a Swedish flag and a stuffed Kangaroo as a gift! Eh, I can just feel the embarrassment right now. I'm just hoping there will be some photos. I got the SMH so hopefully there will be something for me to scan.

I like the gown too, but to me, the tiara is too small for it. Al and all, I like the Queen's look though.

This is more about Cochlear implants, but it's the only thing in the paper I found about the Swedish Royals' visit. I was going to scan it, but they had a better copy online.
