The state dinner was, indeed, highly degrading, insulting, cheap and totally flipflopesque :

Why do you think so?

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!

Really? I had no idea about that. I was sure a king would have his queen by his side when walking together. I've always assumed that the "few steps after" rule only applied to male consorts of a higher ranking women. Thank you for the information.

Hmm well even if that was the case I seriously doubt the Queen getting the runs by the sight of her husband in a suit.

I hope it wasn't food poisoning that has incapacitated the Queen ?

The king hosted a dinner on Wednesday evening in Palais de Chaillot.

Expressen writes that it turned out that the queen had suffered food poisoning after the gala dinner with President Hollande. The Queen was one of those who got food poisoning of lobster from Bretagne which was served an appetizer.
The king was still in a good mood when he summed up the two days: Fantastic programs and immensely rewarding for all of us who are here. That's the whole thing with a state visit to establish contacts and opportunities. I think we have succeeded tremendously well and the journey is still far from over.
About the government crisis in Sweden the king said: I hope there will be something good for Sweden in the long run. I have been informed of what had happened the past few days and we'll see to the future. From something bad will usually come something good.
About the meeting with Zlatan the king said: Yes, he is undeniably a role model and a strong symbolic value for Sweden. It was a short meeting, but we talked much about integration issues as they work very effectively with and make an admirable effort. It was good that he had a suit on, and did not come in soccer clothes, it had been difficult, said the king, laughing lightly.
The king notes that all young people who were in the meeting, got an "extra kick" to see the Ibrahimovic: He gives these young people the little extra energy. The extra kick.
Zlatan has repeatedly expressed his admiration for the king, your comment?
The king is a little embarrassed: Yes, it's nice that he thinks so, thank you.
The king is waiting for the Nobel ceremonies: It is an extremely pleasant and happy occasion. Prize winners from all over the world and a lot of interesting conversations. To an outsider, it may seem heavy and inconvenient, but it is certainly not.
The whole family gathered for the first time. The King's expectations?
- That they will appreciate it and think it's nice, because that's exactly what it is.

The king and queen visited the L'Académie des Jeux floraux (one of the oldest known literary societies) at Hotel Assézat. It was founded in 1323 and got the status as academy in 1694 from Louis XIV.

The king and queen meet the mayor of Toulouse.

Queen Silvia is looking good (again) in These pics after her Food poisoning. thank God.
What a shame for the Country (and the cook).... poisoning the Special Guest (and some others I assume) at the Gala Dinner of the State Visit. Has this ever happen before on other State Visits?

I saw the Speech of President Hollande at the State Dinner. The King of Sweden was absolutely not listening to , he was busy with a sheet of paper . Was it his own speech?

I would think that the speeches are as translated versions at the program on the tables. The same when the king was speaking, the president wasn't listening at all.

It's not technically a food poisoning, The Queen got apparently a less glamorous gastroenteritis.

And of course would not the Court say that it was food poisoning even if that was the case. That would not put the hosts in good favor. Very understandable!

Bunte is just quoting the article in Expressen , which I wrote here in the morning. Johan T Lindwall wrote in it that the queen got food poisoning of the lobster of Bretagne at the dinner. Lindwall wrote that it was thought at first that it was a stomach flu but later it was found that it was a food poisoning, which also several other people had got.

And i'm still searching a single line of this royal food poisoning in the French press ... The same about the "several other guests" apparently intoxicated during the same dinner : not a single word.
A bit fishy ...
