Yes ... that is quite correct.

I just looked at www.royalcourt.se, at
http://www.royalcourt.se/themonarchy...a80009099.html

... and it shows that from March 14 to 19, 1988 the Royal Couple came to Canada to be feted by the then Governor General Jeanne Sauvé.

And from May 18 to 20, 1981, the then Governor General Edward Schreyer (who came as an infant immigrant to Canada, and was also Premier of Manitoba) went to Sweden with his wife to be feted by the Royal Couple in Stockholm.

Trust "all" is clear now.

And here is the "canadian link" for state visits:

For this upcoming state visit, I will hope for your sake, that the Governor General finds it worthy enough to post pictures, at
http://www.gg.ca/media/pho/index_e.asp
I checked the archives and it only goes back to 1999. (Hope years further back get scanned in, at some point in time.)

I am not going to go down to Quebec City to see them if they are going to be in Montreal. My question was to know what they were going to visit in Montreal.

By the way does anyone know when the Official State Visit program will be announced

[visiting] Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Quebec City. The King and Queen will meet the Prime Minister and ... the provincial governments of Ontario and Quebec.

The Swedish government will be represented on the visit.
A delegation of Swedish business representatives will also be visiting Canada at the same time.

The programme also includes:
- the opening of a silver exhibition in Ottawa.
- company visits in Montreal.
- round table discussions on violence against women.
- an environmental conference with Swedish participation in Toronto.
- International Festival of Authors, IFOA, with a special focus on Swedish children's literature, Toronto.
- a Polar research meeting in Quebec City."

I checked the links I had posted earlier, to find an update of the itinerary, and was unsuccessful. (Hope others here have better success than me.)

I have recieved an e-mail saying that Governor General Michaëlle Jean will be welcoming Thier Majesties The King and Queen of Sweden on 24 October. Here is the program:

10:30 a.m. – Official welcoming ceremony
Due to rehabilitation work currently being done on the front façade of Rideau Hall, the official arrival ceremony, with military honours, will be held outside in the main garden of Rideau Hall (located behind the residence). The Governor General will offer welcoming remarks to which the King will reply. Inclement weather: The ceremony will be held in the Tent Room at Rideau Hall.

11 a.m. – Tête-à-tête between Their Majesties and Their Excellencies

11:30 a.m. – Tree-planting ceremony
Their Majesties will plant a tree on the grounds of Rideau Hall in commemoration of their visit to Canada. The tree is an eastern white pine that will be planted near the front entrance of Rideau Hall.
7:30 p.m. – Official Photo of Their Majesties and Their Excellencies

7:45 p.m. – State dinner
The Governor General and Mr. Lafond will host a State dinner in the Ballroom at Rideau Hall in honour of Their Majesties.

www.gg.ca

I haven't found any information on The King and Queen's visit to Quebec, Montreal and Toronto.

Well hopefully the weather clears up a bit, it is snowing at the moment.

Does anyone know if the public will be able to go to Rideau Hall ? I was hoping that they would go to the war memorial since it is usually the best place to see foreign vistors, but I guess there isn't really a point.

ETA: For Toronto they are going to the Hockey Hall of Fame, I don't know anymore details but it was on the front page of the Ottawa Citizen

It was nice to see a large colour picture of the King & Queen on the front of the Ottawa Citizen today. But unfortunately the article was rather vague about their complete intinerary while in Ottawa.

I did hear that, besides visiting Rideau Hall & the National Gallery, they will be at the Library and Archives Canada Gatineau Preservation Centre tomorrow afternoon.

I hope this doesn't violate the rules of the Royal Forums, but I shared some of my (lousy) photos of today's events at the Glittering Royal Events board. I spent the bulk of the day racing between my university in Ottawa South and Downtown hoping to catch a glimpse of Their Majesties...this is what I had to show for it. LOL

bweir..thanks for the pictures. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. And while I love the Queen's coat (the color is divine)...I am still not sure about that hat. But they both look great and appear to be in good spirits. Whats the weather like?

Nice, some snow/rain but not that cold.

I love the King's reaction to the hockey puck. The should have him drop the puck at a Leafs game.

Nice pictures bweir, I wish I could have gone out to see them. However I am in the middle of moving and it is going like this ---> (why are you posting then Oppie ? ....cause I don't want to pack anymore)

It's a pity that their are no more pics of this state visit?
What's the reason?
I see plenty photo's from Willem Alexander and Maxima, but no more from Queen Silvia.

I had the pleasure today to meet Queen Silvia at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Montreal and suprisingly, I was the ONLY one present there as public (except the hotel staff). There were also no media present to cover this event. I think that there wasn't alot of publicity done around this visit.

I find that Queen Silvia looks a lot prettier when you see her in reality then photos.

Thanks for the photos Bweir! I was going to go downtown today but i had to work My lunch break is not long enough to make the trip and be back in time . I didn't have any classes today at the university either so I couldn't give my camera to a friend to snap some photos for me.
