Thanks for the nice pics Boris and Ursulajohanna!

I like this pic of Queen Silvia loking at the fresh tortellini in a window shop (tortellini are typical of Bologna and Modena)
Belga

and this pic of the King carrying his own briefcase/ hand-luggage, on his arrival at the airport of Bologna. Very unusual for a king, but very nice of him.

On which other events did she wear the ruby tiara? Sorry, I must have missed those.
You are right about the "sheet". She ususally has more style.

The first time she wore it as necklace at the Return Banquet which was hosted by Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus at their State Visit to Sweden in the 80's. Then at the Wedding of Joachim and Alexandra in 1995. Nrxt time was at the State Visit to japan in 2007, Return Dinner at the State Visit to Portugal 2008, State Visit from Greece in 2008.

I had heard that there was a dispute about the ownership of this tiara and that this was the reason why the queen didn’t wear it anymore. But maybe this information was wrong or the maybe the conflict was solved. It's nice to see it, anyway

Yes there was a long dispute. The tiara once was a Wedding gift from King Edward VII. to his niece Margaret when she married the future Gustaf VI. Adolf. After her early death it was inherited by her second son Sigvard who lost his succession rights and titles due to unequal marriage. He sold the tiara in the 1940's in the US but the Family managed to buy it back. When King Gustaf VI. Adolf died the tiara was inherited by Sigvards son Count Michael Bernadotte. Later King Carl XVI. Gustaf bought it back from him.
The relationshp between Sigvard and the Royal family was not good because Sigvard wanted his Royal itile back but the King said he could not change a decision by one of his predecessors. Every time when the Queen whore the tiara the medis brought stories about the dubious ownership of the tiara as Sigvard wanted it also back. No since Sigvard died a few years ago this seems not so much an issue anymore.

Here is a link to a german videoclip of the german tv-magazine "mittagsmagazin".
I think it is quite nice. The report is after 28:30 minutes.

First you have to klick on "Zur ZDFmediathek". Then you will see the mediaplayer.
