The court has a great website about the state visit.
English version:
State visit - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
Swedish version:
Statsbesök - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

The King and Queen's second state visit to France began with a welcoming ceremony with General Hervé Charpentier, military Governor of Paris at L'Hôtel des Invalides, one of Paris's main buildings.The king and queen made also a short visit to MuséeArmée Invalides.
This article will be updated during the day.

Expressen has a live-TV, the king and queen came to PSG's Stadium, they met Zlatan Ibrahimovic and other players and children from the PSG Foundation. They got information about the PSG Foundation, which helps helps children with special needs and their families.

Yes, Zlatan is there! The swedish press must be in ecstasy now.

And also the international press, they went totally crazy about Zlatan (and a little of the king and queen), all these photographers

Zlatan refers to himself as 'god' so a king is no competition for him!

Yes, but he said some days ago that he has always wanted to meet the king. Zlatan seemed to be in a very good mood.

For those with little or no French, this article fulminates against the deeply unpopular M. Hollande, who as President of the French Republic is dishonouring his guests , and his country, by dispensing with formal dress, at this evenings State Banquet, and deciding that lounge suits will be worn..
Why not go the whole hog, and just wear track suits and jogging shoes..?

A lounge suit? For a State Banquet? What will Queen Silvia wear - house-coat and curlers I suppose?! Perhaps the State Banquet will be held at a nice little bistro off the Champs D'Elysee, in which case a dark lounge suit would be fine!

Could you please translate the part about Queen Elizabeth? I remember she was wearing "full regalia" (Tiara and her french order) for the state banquet last june at Elysée Palace while the president just wore a tuxedo, which I found quite odd because usually the guest adapts the dressing rules of the visiting host...?!
I liked the Queen wearing a proper state banquet outfit, though!

'Already, gaffes and missteps accumulated by the president and his ministers during the state visit of Queen Elizabeth of England, in June, had upset me; and I wondered if he should not have been instructed at the start of term, to provide those u few basics of etiquette and protocol. After all, these are things that can be learned - and since, obviously, not everyone's education is enough, it might be wise to overcome some shortcomings as well ...'

During the Queens State visit in June, President Holland sat down first, in the car he shared with the Queen, and touched her [which breaks a long etablished protocol].

Paris, the capital of elegance of style - what became of you???


And what got into Hollande that he changes dress code in the middle of is term, receiving one monarch in black tie and the next one in a mere suit?
That does not make sense and is utterly disappointing.

Video of the king and queen meeting president Hollande
Här möter presidenten kungaparet | Kungligt | Expressen.tv

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, told to Expressen that Zlatan was very excited and happy for the meeting and didn't mind although the king and queen were a little late. They talked a lot about integration issues and how important they are. Zlatan said to the king and queen that he understands that it has been written a lot in the media about this meeting. The king nodded. Zlatan said to the king and queen that he would be more than happy to meet them again, but then maybe in a little smaller circumstances, and without all these, he said, and turned his hand to all photographers. We too, said the king. When Zlatan said goodbye to the king, he said: Now take care of Sweden until I get home next time.

What is a lounge suit? And who is Zlatan, a soccer player I guess? Or ice hockey?

Just shows if you are unpopular you can't do anything right. I remember when Michelle Obama touched HMQEII and it was considered friendly or something.

Zlatan is a Swedish professional footballer who plays as a striker for French club Paris Saint-Germain and the Swedish national team for which he is captain. He is one of the highest paid footballers in the world.

Live from Elysée, no tiara for the queen. Of course not, the men are wearing suits.
