Imigração: Visita ao CNAI pretende conhecer conceito "inovador e interessante" de integração em Portugal - Corte Sueca - RTP Notícias

Tomorrow, Queen Silvia and the Swedish Minister of Migration, Tobias Billstrom, are visiting the National Center of Support to Imigrants (CNAI), in order to learn about the Portuguese instruments of integration. According to the royal court, the Queen and the minister of Migration have interest in knowing the CNAI, "to know and study" an innovative concept, which "provides all the services that are necessary to guarantee the integration of immigrants in the Portuguese society". The Swedish politics of integration was considered the best and the Portuguese system as the second best, in the independent study Migration Integration Policy Index 2006 (MIPEX), which compared the politics of integration in 28 different countries.

Tommorow's visit will include dance and musical performances by African and Brazilian groups, descending from immigrant communities in Portugal.

Reis da Suécia recebidos na Câmara Municipal de Lisboa com elogios de António Costa - RTP Notícias

In the City Hall of Lisbon, António Costa welcomed the Swedish sovereigns and praised the good example on the environmental protection and the use of renewable energies that comes from many Swedish cities, namely the city of Malmo.

King Carl Gustav, on his turn, expressed his joy for being again at the City Hall of Lisbon, which he had already visited back in 1998, when he came to inaugurate the Sweedish Pavilion of Expo-98. After mentioning the "glorious past" of Portugal in the maritime adventure of the discoveries, the sovereign praised the beauties of the country and the city: "The Swedish people feel at home while in Portugal", refering to the presence of some important Sweedish companies and several thousands Swedish tourists who visit Portugal every year.

After signing the Honor Roll, António Costa offered the Swedish monarchs a bronze statue of King D. José I and Queen Silvia was presented with a silver goblet with the caravels of Lisbon engraved on the base. Then, the royal couple headed for a lunch with the Prime Minister, José Sócrates.

This morning, Carl Gustav visited the Portuguese Industrial Association (AIP) and participated in a symposium about renewable energies renewed, organized by the Swedish Service of Exportations and by the Portuguese Enterprise Association.

Nice to see HM the Queen wih the ruby tiara of Edward VII, this must be the second time or so she wears it as a tiara, I believe. I must say the tiara actually suits her and I do hope she will wear it more often.
Does anybody know more about the brooch and earrings btw?

And a thanks to those who keep us updated!

Nice to see back some things I acually saw irl this winter. Did the King and Queen actually stay in the capital the whole time? Did anybody hear The Queen speak Portuguese btw (on television maybe?) I suppose she has a strong Brazilian accent? Esp. the red outfit looks very good on her IMO, and the worst damages of the plastic surgery seem to have faded.

Edit: I see that today they will visit Evora, where Diane de Cadaval will get married soon. A beautiful city btw!

Ah priceless. My former Portuguese mother-in-law was rather cruel about the Brazilian accent, so to imagine the Queen of Sweden with that is rather funny (to me, that is).

Anyway, does anybody know what orders the King and Queen got? The one the king is wearing resembles the Belgian one.

They're having lunch at her palace, actually. Part of the Cadaval Palace may be rented for events and I belive that's what the mayor of Évora did.

The order that King Carl XVI Gustaf is wearing that resembles the Belgian Order of Leopold is the Order of Saint James of the Sword.

Reis da Suécia recebidos por dezenas de crianças e escuteiros em Évora - RTP Notícias

On the last day of their official visit to Portugal, the Swedish monarchs dedicated the morning to visit the historic downtown of Évora and a factory of photo-electric cells, reserving the afternoon for ao boat ride to the Alqueva lake.

As the honorary president of the World Scout Movement, King Carl Gustav was received at the Évora cathedral by dozens of scouts, who sang the hymn of the National Corporation of Scouts (CNE). After visiting the cathedral, the King and the Queen talked a bit with some of the youngsters, who presented the royal couple with a scout ring, made in cork oak.

During the reception in the City Hall, King Carl Gustav was presented with a traditional tapestry of Arraiolos and an umbrella made in cork oak. Then the King expressed his "contentment" for visiting "the pretty city" of Évora, for the first time.

After the welcome ceremony, the Swedish monarchs were still able to visit the Roman Temple (listed by UNESCO as World Heritage), the Convent of Lóios and the Palace of the Dukes of Cadaval.

At the main square, the king and queen were greeted by dozens of people, including many children and a group of singers, wearing the traditional costumes of Alentejo.

After the lunch (served at the Cadacal Palace, where tipical gastronomy was presented to them), the Swedish monarchs headed to the medieval village of Monsaraz, where they're going to embark on a boat ride to the Alqueva lake, where they are going to visit the barrage.

I was happy to see that it was full gala on both dinners. And it was great that the queen choose to wear the ruby tiara, i liked how it looked this time, and i think that if she wears it from time to time the press will not take notice and print the story about the "conflict tiara"...
