At the queen's program was today at least a lunch with prime minister Manuel Walls. The king and queen should also visit a culture centre and at a photo exhibition. The queen should also deliver a scienze prize for research of childhood cancer and attend a seminar after that. And of course the return dinner.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, who is also in France, said to Expressen, that it is not known when the queen returns to the visit program.

Margareta Thorgren said to Aftonbladet, that she hopes that the queen can attend at the dinner this evening, but she can't be sure about that.

The queen didn't attend at the seminar of childhood cancer research. The swedish minister for employment Ylva Johansson attended together with the french minister of Health Marisol Touraine.

Swedish State Visit to France: December 2-4, 2014

With all these talks about protocol during the state visit what really surprises me after seeing the photos above is why the King and the President walks ahead of the Queen. The way I was brought up it's common courtesy to never walk in front of a lady. She might be Queen or a laundry maid, in white tie or naked it's not something I'd expect to see.

The king always walks ahead of the queen consort, doesn't he ?

There's a thread on this in the Swedish Forum ,I'll move your post there and keep this thread focused on the State Visit to France.

No More Nobility?

How do you know she was fond of wearing a tiara?! Perhaps she was relieved not to be obliged to do so!
I think a Queen used to wear expensive jewels and women who´ll never wear precious pieces in all their lifetime, the longing of wearing a tiara might be perceived very differently...

Well, the way you and I might have been brought up is, as you stated correctly, common courtesy, but not the royal one!
Different rules for heads of state! Queen- or Prince consorts always walk a few steps behind. In the old days this rule was even stricter than today; A Queen (consort) or a Crown Princess (outranked by her husband, the future monarch) walking down the stairs of a plane and shaking hands of officials before her husband did so, would have been quite unheard of, a harsh disregard of protocol!
Nowadays these rules don´t seem to be that strict on every occasion anymore. But I remember a documentary about late King Baudouin of Belgium when his wife, Qu. Fabiola, refused very firmly to reach a journalist (who just wanted to be polite) a hand before her husband did!

If you read this thread, you see Baron Brockdorf's message about the court press release this morning telling that the queen is ill.

Gallery, some photos from yesterday and most from today.

She probably found last night as hard to stomach, as many of us [expecting a state banquet worthy of the name] did.
I hope Her Majesty recovers soon.
