I didnt expect much coverage of this visit. Royal visits don't tend to get much reaction in Canada, unless ofcourse we're talking about British royals, and even then its the senior royals of that family who are considered more newsworthy.

The Queen's visit at the Ritz Carlton Hotel was really quick. The motorcade arrived, she step out and was greeted by a staff member, Protocol member of the government and then went in. What I didn't like was that the State Visit events were by invitation only. There was also no one from the govrenment, municipal government and provincial government. I think that there should of been someone from these governments there to welcome her, certainly the city of montreal.

I just still can't believe I saw The Queen of Sweden. LOL

Queen Silvia is for me one of best dressed queens ever. I love that grey gown and this outfit very much http://img209.imageshack.us/my.php?i...6251366mu5.jpg

Do State Dinners in Canada take place in Rideau Hall? I love the interior of the rooms in those pictures and wanted to know if that is Rideau Hall

Yes that was at Rideau Hall, I saw a clip of the King's speech and in it it talked about the special immigration that was happening between Canada and Sweden, Hockey Players, (two Canadian teams have Sweds as there captains).

It's to bad that there isn't more coverage, but (for me at least) I find it hard to get good information about where they are. The only foriegn vistor I ever saw was the President of Afgainistan, just because I happend to be at the right place at the right time.

How good to see Silvia in her tiara. She looks elegant. But I think that this gown could be little longer.

It seems like this visit has had a very interesting program with lots of variety. Visits to the hockey Hall of Fame, a winery, Niagra Falls, lots of very interesting stuff to visit.
